    Yes I am evil, but they are not here to keep up with the latest footie results and goings on - they are here to learn...

    And you are surely there to work, yet here you are posting up complaints about the World Cup. Oh, the irony =)

    Who needs to pay for a sat dish - my area released FreeView HD in February. Bought my box and all ready for the World Cup! Once it is finished will probably move FreeView HD box upstairs and get Sky HD ordered for the new football season.

    Not really, lull before the storm (in about 5 mins when P1 starts...) so just having a brew and psyching myself up for a day of toner changes (including clothing as they are the new "exploding OKI" toners..)

    The are going to be allowed to watch stuff at certain times and in certain places, but at no other times, staff have the right to implement the Temporary Bypass feature on SchoolGuardian if needed for coursework.
    In fact some teachers have started trying to create coursework around the world cup and I am working with them to ensure that this can be acehvied....

    ITV HD is available through Sky - not sure Sky themselves had much to do with it though

    Ah, so you aren't really blocking anything with Football & World Cup - I think you secretly have a love for the sport, but are trying to prove otherwise.

    Hmm maybe but when Gordon Brown called that woman from Rochdale a biggot people would have swore he has blown it in Rochdale. Labour infact won the seat from LibDems. You just never know...

    I think the way the draw was made this World Cup was a farce - an absolute disgrace. That said, I think it should prove to be a good World Cup, with some of the 'better' teams sturggling (Argentina), and I think England have a real chance!
    Lord Treason, the dreadful state of the pitch at Wembley and the recent pitch invasions/yobbish behaviour have probably ended any chance we had of hosting it in 2018.

    Damn shame as I would have gone to see any game, even Honduras Vs Azerbaijan. (Should they get there)

    As for this World Cup, I wouldn't rule out Argentina, even though their qualification went to the wire.

    The pitch is dyer at Wembley - but they have 8 years to sort it out. And as for the 'yobbish' behaviour - what would you call the murders that happen every day in South Africa?! Not to mention the extra millions that South Africa have had to be given to bring everything up to scratch. If South Africa can host it, and England can't then there is something seriously the matter with the world today.

    As for this World Cup, I wouldn't rule out Argentina, even though their qualification went to the wire.
    Can't rule anyone out of the World Cup - it's like the FA Cup in England. Anybody can quite literally win it. Thing is though, Argentina have left all their superheroes at home, and I honestly think Greece could give them a run for their money in the group stage.

    Did you see the riot in Barcelona after they won the title at the weekend?

    Spain has a far worse record on fan trouble than English clubs, not to mention the racism.

    Any recomendations of places to visit in PE?
    It's a great country though I'm not the fondest of PE

    If you can manage, get to Addo elephant park (right outside of PE) - I imagine there'll be a lot of people doing the rounds there but it's really very cool.

    We're really looking forward to it as they've given us the whole thing off 4 1/2 weeks of holiday here I come!
