I did the Everton away midweek game that never was, a few years ago. The journey up was absolutely fine, then as we joined the M6 north of Birmingham it was gridlock.

Unlike a lot of Palace who turned around at Stafford and gave up, I decided to drive across country toward Chester... We literally had to turnaround on some roads as big trees were coming down and blocking roads. I remember going down one particular country road that appeared more like driving through someone's farm.

I was driving far too fast in terrible conditions, but the want of going to the game was so strong. We kept our ears on the radio and my mate was on Twitter, and we were fully expecting news to come through of postponement. But the further into the journey we got, we sort of thought that 'well they can't cancel it now...'

Just as we got outside Chester to join the A55, around 7pm I think, the news of course came through that the game had been called off. We turned back and other than stopping for petrol once, I drove the entire way without a break. I think it was 12 hours in all, and it was all for nothing

I think the many shit games you see when you're expecting to lose aren't too disappointing in the main. You kind of to to twenty god awful away matches just to make it more special when you see the one or two we'd win for the whole season.

It's when the team actually gets good, and there's a level of expectation attached that it sticks in the craw. The season we finished third, the losses at Villa and Old Trafford were disappointing in this context. We just didn't show up.

Hull away to just miss out on the playoffs was similarly disappointing.

Was at and got in to both games .

Not really a 'worst' game but Bolton away at the old Burnden Park probably about 1990. Literally hardly saw any football it was so foggy. I think the only reason we knew we'd scored was Bolton kicked off

I remember a foggy away trip to Sheffield United in the mid-80's, it was so bad we could hardly see the goal up our end let alone the other end,it ended 0-0 I think!!

Worst Away game... Hmmm. I remember going up to Barnsley on my birthday in 2001. That was grim! Long old drive, took us ages to park, cold, miserable, we got in the ground late to see us give away a penalty (which they missed!) and then lose 1-0 to a Shipperley header. We were ******* abject! Still we got our money back so not all bad.
