(Kent Online)   Downside of having a theatre in a town centre surrounded by pubs? Having to cancel a choir performance tomorrow evening as it clashed with the England/Croatia semi-final, and ain't nothing louder than the barmy army screaming 'It's coming home'   ( kentonline.co.uk) divider line

I know different people like different things, but it's the farking World Cup. Happens once every 4 years and participantion is not guaranteed.  Maybe don't plan a chorus event right in the middle of the contest when your country is in the finals

It's the World Cup. There are no guarantees.

Schedule, and then be willing to reschedule.

Pretty sure a lot of the choir members also didn't want to miss the game for a performance.

It's also England. Their own fans never expected them to make it to the knockout round - not due to lack of talent but because it's the English tradition to fail miserably at the World Cup.
Even more unexpected: winning a game on penalty kicks.

My neutrino collaboration just rescheduled a day of workshops around this game.

If that's the biggest downside, sounds like a pretty good arrangement to me.

/would normally expect bigger problems with the place smelling like vomit or piss

This entire thing has been arranged to crush English spirit.  Get this far and win on penalties?  People are getting their hopes up.

Croatia will win 5-0 tomorrow.  There will be 4 own goals and a penalty kick awarded.

The last game (quarter final against Sweden 2-0) was won on regular goals and also pretty epic with that header.

Subby here, and have to agree. Any game that's decided on penalties, during the game or after, is less of a game IMHO. We were really quite good, considering how we performed in the group stages. (2 easy rides and a game that didn't matter)

England will score an own goal ON a penalty kick.
