    This happened on June 1996 and it was during a Penarol-Danubio game. Penarol fans were upset at the fact that their team was down 1-0 and with few minutes remaining the fans began throwing all sorts of objects into the pitch (rocks,bottles) but what finally caused the ref to suspend the game was the sight of the linesman down, a motorcycle helmet next to him: it had just hit him.

    A couple of years ago there was a story in a paper about a Cambridgeshire league match that was played one winter in typically murky fenland conditions. After about 10 minutes, the fog came down so thickly that visibilty was reduced to about half the length of the pitch, so the referee decided to abandon the game. It was only after the players had been enjoying the warmth of the changing rooms for about 20 minutes that a player on one of the teams noticed that their goalkeeper had not come in. When they went out to look for him they discovered him still faithfully guarding his goal, oblivious to the fact that the match had been abandoned. Apparently, he thought his team had been playing particularly well and had managed to keep the play at the other end of the pitch...

    In a friendly practice match in Mexico during the seventies, a goalie was hassling the goalie about something or other. The player left the pitch and returned with a gun, shot the ref a point blank range killing him instantly.

    Once, Newtownards football club were playing a match against Ballycastle junior farmers, in the bass Irish cup. The crowd was about 100 in total. Nearby, a pie baking competition was taking place. A man named Douglas Saulters had taken surprise first place, with a beef and apricot pie, his rival, Bernie Botmann, was irate at the judges decision, and stormed out of the contest. He drove to the football ground to calm down. However, he decided to get rid of the pies, and, in a rage, threw at the footballers. Johnny Mccreadie, the Ballycastle forward, who was a bit fat, halted an attack to bend over to sample the pieman's wares. suddenly, the crowd began to sing "who ate all the pies, who ate all the pies, you fat bas****, you fat bas****, who ate all the pies? and this was how that famous song was begun!!!

    Ronnie Whealen playing for Liverpool against Southampton 1987..The game was going Liverpools way so they decided to calm it down a bit and pass the ball around the defence, In his wisdom, Ronnie decided to pass the ball back to Brucey in goals, but instead of a simple pass the guy goes and lobs him from over 60 yards out. Liverpool drew the game 2-2.

    It concerns a match played around Dec '93-Feb '94 between Barbados and Grenada in some cup competition. Barbados needed to win the game by two clear goals in order to progress to the next round. Now the trouble was caused by a daft rule in the competition which stated that in the event of a game going to penalty kicks, the winner would be awarded a 2-0 victory.
    With 5 minutes to go, Barbados were leading 2-1, and going out of the tournament. Then, when they realised they were probably not going to score against Grenada's massed defence, they turned round, and deliberately scored an own goal, to level the scores. Grenada, themselves not being stupid, realised what was going on, and then attempted to score an own goal themselves. However, the Barbados players started defending their opponents goal to prevent this. In the last five minutes, therefore, spectators were treated to the incredible sight of a team defending their opponents goal against attackers desperately trying to score an own goal!

    Eventually, the game did go to penalties, which Barbados won... Apparently it was televised live.
