He was neither a public figure, nor a famous athlete, nor a popular film actor, but simply a fan of Arsenal in London. True, the fan is slightly unusual. For 30 years, Smidel did not miss a single game of his favorite team, whether in England or abroad. However, after the celebrations, Smaidl admitted that he had to miss two matches. In 1933 he missed the game because he was lost in the fog. After another 6 years, he managed to catch only the second half of the game Arsenal - Blackpool, because he got married that day.

The situation in the stands heated up, and the referee, familiar with the temperament and customs of local fans, not without reason, was afraid of great trouble for himself and the visiting team. A few minutes before the whistle, he called the captains to him and developed the following plan: the time will be extended to give the hosts the opportunity to score a goal, the score will be 0: 0. A symbolic goal flew into the Deportivo goal in the 92nd minute. There was no stopwatch in the stadium, and the audience applauded the referee and the players.

And the referee of the match had no choice but to count the goal to the indignation of the players from Yerevan. The goal was scored on the attacker from Gyumri, who touched the ball last. 5 cards to one player. A curious incident occurred in Brazil at a football match in the state of Piyaui.

The arbitrator, despite the protests of spectators and football players, counted the goal. as time went on, the owners could not recoup, because of what the situation in the stands and on the field gradually heated up.The referee feverishly considered plans to save him from the massacre of the raging fans ...

Fair referee The fairest judge is English football referee Melvin Sylvester. During the game, striker of one of the teams, Richard Kerd, repeatedly pushed the referee on the sly and finally hit him quite sensitively.The angry referee did not cope with emotions and three boxing workshops overthrew the offender on the lawn, after which he calmly presented himself with a red card and left the field. Orange coffins Specially for Euro 2000, one of the Dutch businessmen released a batch of orange coffins in the form of the Dutch national team - “I understand that this idea will seem shocking to you, but I’m sure everything will be sold out.” Barbell suffered This happened in 1980 during a football match in the Romanian city of Timisoara between the local "Polytechnic" and the team of the Brazilian club Atletico. One of the Brazilian strikers at high speed burst into the penalty area of ​​the home team and went one on one with the Romanian goalkeeper. Goalkeeper "Polytechnic" in a desperate jump rushed to the feet of the Brazilian, he jumped and slammed his head into the goal post, which, unable to withstand the impact, broke in half. The referee had to interrupt the match for 20 minutes in order for the stadium workers to replace the “injured” bar. Brazilian striker, as if nothing had happened, continued to play. The most ridiculous goal of the year. They called the goal scored by the defender of “Sparta” (Rotterdam) in the match with the Spanish “Barcelona” in 1973. Kicking the ball from his goal, the football player sent it high up.The ball was picked up by the wind, burst in the air and fell like a shapeless lump ... at the gates of Barcelona. Judge Fores ordered to replace the ball and despite the protests of the players ... scored a goal. The loudest fans In the finals of the English League Cup in 2005, a record was recorded noise at the stadium. After a goal by Liverpool player Riise, the Chelsea fans in London scored 130.7 decibels. The achievement was recorded in the Guinness Book. The previous record was 128.74 decibels and was set in 2000 at the match of the American club "Denver Broncos". Then there are a lot of facts, a lot of letters and numbers. Thieves from Africa Football players of the Senegal national team for victories in the 2002 World Cup were promised solid bonuses. But it seems that not all players believed in the success of their team. Some were looking for other ways to earn extra money. So Senegal midfielder Khalilu Fadig was accused by the Korean police of stealing a gold necklace from a jewelry store. The theft took place on the eve of the starting match with France and almost turned into a halfback in prison. However, the Korean authorities decided then not to initiate criminal proceedings because of the “insignificant value of the stolen goods”.Interestingly, in 1970 at the World Championships in Mexico, England captain Bobby Moore was also suspected of stealing from a jewelry store, but was later acquitted. Miracle-goal Zhevnova Former goalkeeper of the Belarusian “Bate” (now the goalkeeper of FC “Moscow”) Yuri Zhevnov became the author of the most curious goal of 2004. In the match of the first qualifying round of the UEFA Cup against Dinamo Tbilisi, Zhevnov, introducing the ball into the game from his own penalty, sent it with all his strength to half the field of rivals. Imagine the general surprise when the ball, flying over an incredible trajectory of more than 80 meters, hit the ground and, jumping over goalkeeper Irakli Zoidze, flew straight into the net. I think you should not say that it was not a favorite ball of many "Roteiro". By the way, it is not the first time Zhevnov has succeeded in such tricks. A couple of years ago at a training camp in Turkey, he already scored a similar goal. Then, however, he was helped by a strong wind.

Fight between the judges Before the next match in the Argentinean town of Pelvario, the judge and his assistants were for some reason not in the spirit. Even before entering the field, they had long been “exchanging courtesies”. But the game began. The judge in the field pointedly did not pay attention to the signals of the judges on the line. Those, in turn, subjected to loud criticism of the actions of their colleagues.The end came at that moment when the judge, despite the demands of his assistants, refused to cancel the goal scored from the clear “offside” position. Then the subordinates left it at the intractable bosses and began to beat him. It was necessary for the players of both teams to separate the fighting. Not without difficulty, they put order on the field. Fastest Own Goal A defensive recordmaker is defender Mazzia, who played for the Italian club Brescia in the mid-60s. At the 38th second meeting with the team "Mantova", he scored the ball into his own net, making the fastest goal. The judge insulted the player In the match of the championship of Germany between Eintracht (Frankfurt) and Bayern Munich, the side referee insulted the player of the German national team Jürgen Grabowski. By the decision of the disciplinary commission, the arbitrator was disqualified. Draw due to the interference of spectators In the distant 50s a rather rare event occurred in the meeting of two West German provincial teams. The hard, tense bout came to an end, and the score remained a draw - 3: 3. And suddenly one of the attacking guests, having received the ball, circled two defenders one by one, and then the goalkeeper, rushing desperately at his feet, and quietly sent the ball into an empty net. Stadium stopped.Not lost only one of the zealous fans of the local team. He rushed headlong to the gate and at the last moment managed to knock the ball from the goal line. The account remained unchanged. And in the match report, the judge made the following entry: “The game ended in a draw due to the interference of the spectators”. The goalkeeper sent the judge to the oculist. Italian goalkeeper Grosso during the game advised the referee to wear glasses, for which he was sent off. During the trial of this incident, it turned out that Grosso is the owner of the optical store, and the arbitrator has really bad eyesight. In this regard, the words of the goalkeeper, addressed to the arbitrator, the disciplinary commission regarded not as an insult, but as a useful and very rational advice. It ended with the goalkeeper being forgiven, and the judge bought glasses at his store. On the ambulance to the Passionate Tiffozi stadium from Naples, Giovanni Mannini could not get a ticket for the match “Napoli” - “Roma”. Before the start of the game - a few minutes. The situation is almost hopeless. But Mannini confirmed the well-known truth that there are no hopeless situations. Knowing that the nearest medical center is located under the stands of the stadium, he imitated a heart attack.Immediately call an ambulance, which brings him into the stadium. When the nurses opened the car doors to transfer the “patient” to the first-aid post, he broke off the stretcher and instantly disappeared among the spectators. Referee football In the late 50s in the Italian city of Siena, football judges decided to play themselves. We made two teams, entered the field, and the match began. Everything was going fine until a controversial ball was scored into the gates of one of the teams. It was here that all 22 players, each of whom, as a matter of duty, knew well and knew how to interpret the rules, began to prove their case. Word for word, and it came to such a scuffle that the police had to intervene.

Each on the card The rarest case occurred in Spain in the game of teams of the second league “San Isidro” and “Olimpico Carrante”. 3 minutes before the end, players from both teams, dissatisfied with refereeing, surrounded the referee, trying to reason with him. And not only with words and gestures ... In this critical situation, the judge, retaining complete calm, took out a red card and presented it to all twenty-two participants in the match! An absurd case in Greece In the game for the first game of Greece in 1978.Ethnikos accepted PAOK. Having opened the score, the guests, running up to the bench, rapidly shared the joy with its inhabitants, not paying attention to the proposal of the judge to continue the meeting. Without thinking twice, the footballers of Ethnikos, in the absence of rivals, started from the center, walked unhindered to their gates and equaled the score. Bullfighting on a football field In the Spanish city of Fuente, the local team hosted the Gonsha football team. A few minutes passed, and the guests led 2-0. And suddenly, on the field, as if in an arena for a bullfight, an angry bull appears, then another, third. Players and judges who did not have the skills of a matador rushed scatter. The audience followed suit. The judge, who barely managed to hide in the locker room, carefully looked out the window: the bulls were still running around the field. The game had to be canceled. It soon became clear that the bulls prepared for the bullfight were fired by an avid fan of the local club in order to prevent a major loss to their team. Dubinas for Judges In the mid-50s, the authorities of the Iranian district of Al Harvas, located near the Persian Gulf, gave judges unlimited rights.Local judges went out on the field, having with them not only a whistle, but also ... a rubber truncheon, for the rules allowed them not only to warn or remove players, but at their own discretion to strike them with a club. It is claimed that the matches in this region were extremely correct. The referee helped the footballer to find the gift of speech. An unusual picture was observed by fans during the match, which was held in 1967 in the Tunis stadium: a distant footballer left the field with undisguised pleasure. At one point in the match, this player, who had lost his hearing and speech from childhood, was extremely indignant at the decision of the arbitrator and was indignant about himself. And suddenly the remarks ... sounded, as the football player, who suddenly found his voice, continued to speak out of inertia, the referee quite rightly removed him from the field. But this did not upset the player. He was happy, once again finding his voice. The priest called on football players for honesty. In 1957 in Germany, a few seconds before the end of a football match, the victorious goal was scored against one of the teams. At the same time, the referee did not notice that the attacker corrected the ball with his hand, and counted the goal.Then the local priest entered the field and began to loudly admon the winning team to confess how it was. The words of the shepherd took effect. Footballers admitted that they scored the ball incorrectly. The referee reversed the goal and the meeting ended in a draw.

The most stupid goal of the Austrian championship During the break of the match of the Austrian teams “Wattens” and “GAK”, the goalkeeper of the club “GAK” spoke to the patron-sponsor of the fan. Hearing the referee’s whistle to continue the match, the scattered goalkeeper rushed headlong onto the field, and already running up to his goal, with despair, he saw the ball sent in from the center of the field. But as they say, every cloud has a silver lining. After the championship, the unfortunate goalkeeper was awarded the prize “For the most stupid goal of the season”. The fan stopped the train The express operator of Bucharest - Belgrade only at the last moment managed to avoid a collision with a man sprawled on the tracks. A desperate brave man turned out to be a football fan from Yugoslavia Radanovich. He stopped the train so as not to be late for a football match in Belgrade. One of the fastest goals. The fastest goal was scored by center forward of the English club "Bradford City" Jim Friats in April 1964.From the center circle, Friats sent a strong kick into the top corner of the opponent's goal. The goalkeeper at this time only wore gloves. Only four seconds have passed since the start of the match! Intervention of a Higher Force During a football match in the Brazilian state of Pernambuco from a nearby airfield, the wind blew a group of paratroopers onto a football field. One of the paratroopers fell on the goalkeeper at the moment when the goalkeeper prepared to seize the ball. As a result, the ball was at the gate and the referee, despite the protests of the injured team, counted the goal, explaining the appearance of the parachutists by the intervention of a higher power. "Foggy" football In the British Isles, fog is a common occurrence. But an unusual case occurred in the meeting of two Scottish teams. The fog thickened so much that the players were looking for the ball for a long time, partners, rivals. At some point, the judge thought that there were a lot of players on the field. The first thing he did was run to the benches and see that they were empty. The arbitrator immediately interrupted the game. As it turned out, there were thirty players on the field at the same time. Snowstorm During the championship match in England between the teams of Nottingham Forest and Leicester City, the snowstorm intensified with every minute. Visibility on the field is completely gone.At the beginning of the second half, the judge was forced to stop the meeting. Ten minutes passed, and the Leicester players were surprised to notice that there was no goalkeeper in the dressing room. Immediately went in search and found it at the gate. When they explained to him that the match had long been interrupted, he declared: “And then I wonder why our attackers have so much agility?”.

Football player retrained in the fan. It happened in a small town in the south of France. The judge removed from the field a footballer who allowed a strong expression in his address. What a surprise the referee was when, after a few minutes, he heard someone painfully familiar showered him with "compliments", among which the most decent were "Judge from the field!" Looking around, the referee saw the newly-removed football player sitting in the stands in civilian clothing and screaming in full voice. At first, the judge endured, but when he became unbearable, he stopped, called the policeman and asked him to remove the screamer from the stadium. “I cannot do this, monsieur,” the guard said. - I would then have to turn out a good half of the audience. The audience thanked the judge for the excellent refereeing. It happened in the early 60s after a football match in Porto Alegre (Brazil). Excited spectators jumped out onto the field of the stadium and headed towards the referee. The frightened judge went into the locker room with all his might. Not stopping in front of this obstacle, the fans broke the door. The judge huddled into a corner and waited in a daze for a terrible fate.

Goal that caused the earthquake Shortly before the end of one of the matches of the lower league of Argentina’s championship, the home team managed to score a decisive goal. Five thousand spectators who were present at the match jumped to their feet with enthusiastic shouts - and suddenly about 400 fans fell down along with the podium. It turned out that at the very moment when the ball was in the grid, an earthquake occurred. It was this that destroyed one sector of the wooden tribune. The player, who decided the fate of the match, later told his friends and acquaintances that he scored a goal that caused an earthquake. Police football The Brazilian football team "What", which had good results, was unexpectedly disbanded by order of the Minister of the Interior.The fact is that the team consisted mainly of policemen, and during the matches with its participation in the stadium came the whole "outfits" of fans in police uniform. The city began the orgy of crime. But in the stands order was exemplary. Goalkeeper-hole At the Keeper from the British Isles, Jimmy Taylor (he played for the amateur team of the city of Reading) was full of mouth. For 27 matches of the season, he missed 456 goals. An average of about 17 per game. The goalkeeper never touched the ball. In the late 50s, the goalkeeper of the youth team “Djurgården” (Stockholm) set a kind of record. In one of the matches that his team won with a score of 18: 0, he never touched the ball. Two shots from the goal struck the defender, who himself ran for the ball.
