This has gotten me thinking with regards to end of season awards you don't see. I think a Meltdown of the Year award is long overdue at a Presentation Night. With that in mind - here's my all-time top three Hendon meltdowns.
Number 1. I don't know if this is true but it sounds great. Back in the early 1970's Hendon played an FA Amateur Cup tie at Highgate, near Birmingham. During the game, one of our fans, (he still watches Hendon to this day), apparently went on the pitch and just kicked the goal-post in frustration and then calmly climbed back into the crowd behind the goal. What the hell possesses someone to do something like that you may ask?
Only another football fan can truly understand the underlying sentiment in this type of behaviour.
So Total Respect!
Number 2. Casey Mac being sent off at home v Folkestone.
Lying on the floor by the half-way line, Casey decides to pick himself up and run forty yards straight to their centre-half where he subsequently proceeds in kicking the snot out of him. It was a completely unjustified and unwarranted attack. And yet it was incredibly enjoyable to watch.
So Total Respect!
Number 3. Alex Barrett had a proper meltdown at Enfield one afternoon. His rant lasted the entire second half. At 0-4, he was going to tell Gary McCann exactly what he thought of it. At 0-5, there was no way he was going to go all the way to Canvey Island the following Tuesday. And at 0-6, he had completely lost it. He stormed off to the side of the ground where he paced up and down aggressively shouting into this phone and as I walked past him at the end of the match he was remonstrating with the floodlit pylon!
So Total Respect!
Love it!
