Hi folks, it’s been a while since I posted an update with all the classic UK games I’ve been adding to the site… I just finished posting the last missing game from the 1996-1997 season, so I thought I would make a post on here detailing everything that’s available and what’s to come next since I get asked this question from time to time.
Just as a quick note, the total number of UK games/specials on the site is currently at 1,218 and growing nearly every day. I don’t know of any other sports fan base that has an archived collection like this… GOLD STANDARD! Although with the amount of time it takes to convert each game from VHS to digital, cut out all the commercials, encode, upload, and post games to the site, you almost have to be crazy to even attempt something like this.
Lastly, before we get to the list, a BIG thanks has to go to all the people that have been crazy enough to record, archive, and send me games on VHS, DVD, BluRay, and download links since the site launched a little over 2 years ago… this list includes Jerry, Willie, BWO, Ritchie, Mike, Greg, Jeff, Ken, Aaron, Joel, Patrick, Bert, and Barry. I wouldn’t have nearly as many replays on the site without you guys. Also, Jon Scott’s site has been an AMAZING resource to keep things organized.
Now on to the list. The seasons are linked below if you’d like to click on them to see the games for yourself.

I’ve been trying my best to post a game a day during the off season, and I’ve been able to stick with that for the most part. Once the basketball season starts, posting classic games will slow down a bit, but I’ll still try to add at least a few games a week. You can keep up with everything that gets added to the site via the LIST OF REPLAYS PAGE.
For the past little while what I’ve been doing is filling in the gaps of missing games I have access to in chronological order. So this morning I finished posting the last missing gap from the 1996-1997 season, and since I’ve already posted everything I have from 1997-1998, I plan on working on the 1998-1999 season next.
If you have requests from anything I mentioned as having in the list above that you’d like to see sooner rather than later, just leave a comment here and/or the REQUESTS PAGE and I’ll try to prioritize adding it.
Finally, and I kinda hate to mention this, but recently my main ad partnership with Google decided to part ways. The ads from other partnerships that are currently running on the site aren’t creating enough revenue to even pay for the site’s monthly bill right now. With the amount of time it takes to do all of this, and considering right now I’m losing money on the site, I dunno how much longer I’ll be able to maintain everything. If you are willing to donate, any amount would be greatly appreciated. DONATIONS PAGE LINK.
