they usualy run over the christmas period they just arent this year. as far as time off over christmas goes, if you want time off then get a job that gives it. i used to manage pubs which ment christmas eve, christmas day, boxing day, cnew years eve and new years day were all work days, but that comes with the job. it is now why i work in television, you get sh!t loads of time off

Great idea. lets all do it!
i know what your saying, but just think, if everyone wanted to go to footie, there would be nowhere to buy you food, no public transport at all, no service stations open, no coach drivers, wonderful! we have all buggered off to work in TV land. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
seriously though, surely nobody can resent people having a couple of days off? for myself i have shifts that fit in with football. i am lucky!
mind, i had a similar discussion last year. and was shouted down. so wont be surprised if i get the same now.
Anyway, in advance MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/angel.gif" alt="" />

christmas is a crock and to be honest i used to love working christmas day. it amazes me that a country that is one of the least religious in the world once a year seems to find their christian beliefs.

I don't have any beliefs, but I'm buggered if I'm working whilst everyone else is at home.

Thanks, angel.

maybe all i am trying to say is if there are events happening then public transport should be working.I wouldn't particularly like to work over xmas but the FA seem to think its fine for games to go ahead and for clubs to lose money because some fans can't get to them,as usual it will be the smaller clubs that lose money,although some,like canvey will prosper froma localish derby!!

It's a bank holiday - there's always football on bank holidays.

Connex lost SouthEastern a couple of years ago, after being absolutely disastrous, mate. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

I'm sure you wouldn't want to work over Christmas. Most people don't even want to travel.

Then there wouldn't be any football. I only expect it because it's tradition. I wouldn't blame the FA if they called it a day, but it'd be sorely missed as the Christmas fixture crush is the best part of the season.

Changing the subject but answering a previous question, the game is going to be segregated and both bars will be open from 11.00.

We are all questioning transport for Boxing Day but if your expecting tradition you may find that the game is called off due to inclement weather. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

You'll really have something to bitch about after struggling to make your way to Canvey via train, plane or automobile only to find the ref has called it off and hour or so before hand! Dagenham a few seasons ago springs to mind........but at least we are at home.

Must have girly fans if they won't go to a match unless it's under cover. Next thing you know they'll be wanting a seat with a cushion!

And wasn't grays last year the day after Boxing Day? I couldn't go because it was moved...
