I remember one match in the 60s when it had been snowing, the centre of the pitch was muddy, but the sidelines were nearly clear.
As the match went on, both teams made a habit of taking the ball up the sides and crossing it into the goalmouth where the bad ground made scoring a lottery, resulting in a final score of 8-8!

Afterwards he made the fatal remark, "I hope that's the last time I have to do that today." Sixteen goals later...
