In Koh Samui for the Group stages. Looks like there's going to be loads of Palace out there. With all the injuries though it looks like England will be home before I will.:sob:

Exam leave is such a useful thing:)

i was planning on going to bed really early and waking up around 7ish, then watch a game before going to school for an exam. Not sure how likely that is though :p

since the games start at around 4pm here and some kick off at 9pm,I'll be very happy at the prospect of NOT getting up at the crack of dawn to watch some football for a change.:)

What?

Well that is just NOT fair, another good reason why ALL World Cup's should be in England! And all game played at Selhurst!

One of the advantages of running youe own business. We'll have a TV in the office, and it will be a great way to spend a few hours each day, with a couple of beers.

:p

England games in the pub.

I've got the 2 weekday fixtures off work.
2 round would be covered as they all fall on a weekend (I think)
Then the next round is either on a Friday or Saturday dependant on finishing the group 1st or 2nd (if 3rd then I need not worry:sob: )

Looks loke you worked it like me. Booked the Friday off for the Argy game as soon as the fixtures came ou months ago.
Just quietly went to the boss foa a half day. Now all the people with no forethought are up in arms! UNLUCKY. When I get changed into me England shirt a leave for the pub at 12;30 it'll really pi$$ a lot of people off. Heh. Heh
