At Hursley we are very lucky to enjoy a reasonably flexible working regime. As such, there are no real problems in being able to knock off a bit early to watch the England v Trinidad & Tobago game this afternoon. We certainly don't need to take the advice of the Amicus union. It is a 5pm BST kick-off, and so I arrived in work at 6:30am this morning in order to leave early to watch the match. Normally I am found wandering in at about 10am.
I'll be watching it round a friends house, and we are following it up with a BBQ. Thankfully the weather is sunny and warm, but not as warm as it will be on the pitch in Nuremberg.
