    I completely agree - I don't see what all the fuss is about. I mean come on who really believes that England could win, hmmm I don't think so!! Far too much pressure, far too over paid etc etc.

    Ooo can you tell I hate football :yes::tongue:

    Well I'm going out on a limb here to say

    JUST WHEN DID FOOTBALL BECOME MORE IMPORTANT THAN EDUCATION!!!! :mad:

    Schools closing early so kids can watch the game - yes I know it's only once every 4 years but what sort of message are we sending out. It's ridiculous. :sigh:

    Stepping off soap box now. :sorry:

    I'm guessing maybe the powers that be think that the children wouldn't miss very much in the hour or so that they're allowed to go early? A little like finishing at lunchtime on the last day of term maybe?

    Matthew didn't finish early, he pedalled home as fast as he could, watched it for a while and is now in the garden fiddling with bikes! :thumbsup:

    well our kids didn't finish early and I'm flippin glad of it too, I'd have been livid - I could understand it sort of if it was the cup final and a once in alifetime thing but for a group game - well its just not right

    life goes on!!

    I agree.
    I wouldn't mind if they applied it to all sports, such as cricket / rugby / athletics etc. I don't understand why football has been singled out.. :unsure:

    I wonder if it's a way of preventing mass absences? If they let the kids go early there's more chance they'll arrive in the first place?
