If you didn't already know it's been a snowy few days in London so outside of the capital's top clubs, there hasn't been much football going on.
With the icy weather set to continue for most of the week it made me think whether putting this week's post together would be worth it but I've ploughed on nonetheless.
If you made it to a game at Griffin Park, Selhurst Park, Stamford Bridge, The Den, Upton Park, Vicarage Road, White Hart Lane or anywhere else in London this week I'd like to hear about it either here or via Facebook or Twitter (pictures gratefully received).

My main football activity took place earlier this afternoon when I joined the first planning meeting of 2013 for this year's Non-League Day.
We haven't got a date for it yet, it all depends on when the FA schedule their various cup competitions, but we've narrowed it down to either 7 September or 12 October.
If you've got any suggestions or feedback about what we could do this time round, please get in touch.
All the best with your football watching this week, I don't think there'll be much of it!

In the Championship, the south-east London derby between Crystal Palace and Charlton Athletic on 2 February is on general sale.
Tickets are also available for a bonus international friendly between South Korea and Croatia at Craven Cottage on Wednesday 6 February. Sadly it kicks-off at 2pm, presumably for Korean TV purposes. If you're lucky enough to have tickets for England v Brazil at Wembley in the evening, you could take the day off and do an international 'double'.
Leyton Orient have made it to the southern area final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and on the 5 February they will play relatively near neighbours Southend United in the first leg, knowing a place at Wembley is up for grabs. It's a big game for both clubs but tickets are only £15.
Also that night, England C are in action against Turkey at Dartford's Princes Park ground. Apparently tickets are FREE just call or email the club to get one.
If the Europa League is your thing, Chelsea v Sparta Prague on 21 February could be a fine way to spend your evening. It looks like tickets are being sold at a flat rate of £30 which is much less than you'd normally pay for a trip to Stamford Bridge. Tickets go on sale on Tuesday.
Last up in this section, we've received word that Fulham season-ticket holders can take up to two friends to their Premier League game against Stoke City on 23 February for only £5 each, so if you've got any mates who are regulars at Craven Cottage you might want to get in touch.
Over the next week there are more than 80 matches taking place in the London area so there's plenty to choose from. There are big London derbies, top of the table clashes, FA Cup ties and some FA Youth Cup fixtures too.
Details on all of them can be found in the following match map. If you've never used it before, please note that when there is more than one match at a specific ground you'll only be able to see individual match pins if you zoom right in. If you don't, the pins obscure each other and you might miss them. To avoid this, you can also scroll down the list of games on the left side of the page to make sure you get all the information.

9. Walton & Hersham v Walton Casuals - another match to fall foul of the weather over the Christmas period, the Walton derby is currently scheduled for Tuesday. Neither side have had much to shout about this season with both towards the bottom of the Isthmian League Division One South. The hosts are marginally the better side but Casuals are in better form having won their last two games against Eastbourne Town and Three Bridges meaning it should be pretty even. (Isthmian League Division One South, 22 Jan, 745pm. Club info)
10. North Greenford United v AFC Hayes - we finish this week with another derby on the west side of the capital. Like the game above, neither side are doing anything particularly noteworthy this season but AFC Hayes are North Greenford's nearest neighbours in this division so it should be worth a watch. One fact of interest - the hosts are managed by former Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Southampton player Neil Shipperley. (Southern League Division One Central, 22 Jan, 745pm. Club info)
