I love football, really love it, I've been passionate about the beautiful game since I was 6 years old. So the world cup for me should be the biggest highlight of the year. However due to my working hours (07:30 - 17:00) I'm finding that I am missing alot of the games. I only getting to watch the late kick off one. So this is really spoiling my enjoyment of the competition, also alot of mylotters are seeing more games than me and are having some good disscussions on which I can't contribute. The fact that Enland are playing rubbish and are possibly the worst team in the tournament and the dressing room seems to be divided is also not adding to my enjoyment. On a plus note, the games I have seen( except England) I have enjoyed, I just wish I could watch more of it.

If I had to make a list of all the passions I gave up because I had to start working full time it would be so long I would cry for at least 6 hours. I feel for ya. The global thing is true. I wish we could have the best of both worlds but........

Well, everything seemed to be a shock this world cup. France had a very bad showing this world cup, and I think it is safe to say England as well. I hope the others teams I like would make it. Portugal Vs Brazil is something to watch and look forward to!

Unfortunately as the game is global now. Anywhere you hold it, there are going to be places where the time is going to be unsuitable. For the matches that kickoff at 12:00 in the night are a major problem!! I would have preferred a 10:30 start which would have meant that I could go to sleep at a decent hour and wakeup fresh for the office!! And to top it all the best teams play in the 12:00 slot!! Cheers! Ram

I sympathize with you. I'm watching the games recorded as they're shown live in the morning and afternoon here, and it's been extremely difficult to avoid hearing the results before I see the matches. I consider it a bit of a triumph if I can manage to watch a game without knowing the final score ahead of time!

Well, you can always watch the highlights of the game you miss. Go to websites such as Footytube to watch them. Honestly, many of the matches now are quite boring, and you might as well watch the highlights and not waste your time.

thekelz, To be fair, England's debacle and performance is still acceptable as compared to your neighbor - France, which is in all sorts after their Anelka and training boycott. Other than the JT coup, I think there's a lot of interference coming from the media and former players and coaches trying to give their opinions on the current situation. I just hope that the team's morale and performance will not be affected with this mutiny as your country really need to beat the Slovenians in their last match of the first round. I don't think you can do much with the clash of timing unless you can record the earlier match or watch it via your mobile phone or your company closes early on England match days. Hope to see you around.

first of all, i insist that england can qualify 1/8 game through the battle with slovenia. fabio should use more skillful players. england is never good at possessing and controling the ball, so they should be more fast ,more adventuresome. good luck, england!
