When the last King died football wasn't suspended. It might change this time but we've no confirmation of if things are suspended and for how long so it's not yet confirmed


thelonelyoctopus

Suppose Liverpool v Wolves falls into the comedy events section


WillDaThrilll13

Lallana's Brighton v O'Neil's Bournemouth probably the same


Lord_Sauron

Remember when Lallana was at Liverpool and that suarezteeth guy was just constantly trashing him on r/soccer? Those were good times, always got a laugh out of me


liverpool3

You would’ve thought Lallana murdered that guys family


thwinz

So dedicated. Felt almost like a teammates troll account. I suspect origi


FLman42069

The Queen died to give Liverpool time to get their shit together


agamerdiesalone

Queens last words "Play Trent in midfield". Well he can do less damage there tbh!


twomanyfaces10

Stamford Bridge falls under a Comedy venue


prophetcat

More of a tragedy, lately.


Fireclap

Is there actually a real chance that Liverpool-Ajax, and the other UK European fixtures, wont be played for example or you think the pressure from the UEFA will be too much?


Master_NoobX_69

Not only is there no room in the schedule for them to be played later, it would be absolutely unfair to the non English UCL teams


Abbobl

Especially with Liverpool current form - I smell a decent opportunity for Ajax to pick up some hard needed points


fike88

Aye fuck that. I’m relying on champs league fixtures to break up the non stop media coverage we’ll get for the next couple of months


0r0m15

And the away fans too. They already booked very expensive plane tickets en hotel rooms


thelonelyoctopus

There's no room in the schedule for them to get replayed at a later date, so I'd be very surprised if the European games were called off. If they are, it will probably go down as a forfeit


MikePetersonMaignan

Since Man Utd is playing tonight, I’m thinking UEFA doesn’t give a fuck and the matches will be played.


puckuser

It's too close to get postponed, can't judge off that


snuljoon

Are people actually thinking international competitions would be cancelled because of this? Bit of a stretch imo


Orson_Rosas2

I’m a bit pissed cause we had a chance, now you’ll be all rested😩


DraperCarousel

Did you watch them yesterday? They did all the resting on the pitch already.


Sdub4

The genius of Tony Bloom strikes again, letting Potter go the day the Queen dies to maximise the time before the first game under a new manager


patchypubes

Wow Brighton really are well-rum


opi

This will do wonders to a fixture list cut through by fucking Word Cup.


Captainbuttbeard

No worries the players can handle 4 matches per week


opi

Just buy some bunk beds and let them sleep on a training grounds. Simple.


Swordfish_Repulsive

Comedy is cancelled bro


alfred_27

It's not comedy, FA will legit make them play 4 matches a week


[deleted]

Just for the PL clubs not for everyone else lol


opi

Ain't Canada included? Dunno if their league plays now.


CaptainGo

Can't imagine they'd be playing at an outdoor stadium in Calgary in the middle of winter so the WC probably slides right in


HotTubMike

The poors can have their petty amusements


[deleted]

i would much rather watch Madrid play then to mourn for 10 days lol


Imoraswut

Man Utd have a home game starting in 45min, is that still going ahead? edit: West Ham too


TehFuriousKid

I'd assume it does or they would have to reimburse the sociedad fans


14_SNOO_53

Yes


EezoManiac

Give us a bank holiday then, I'm despondent here lads


Dillan86

19th September will be


ThereWillBeGoals

Don't think it will. Most people will get the day off, but I don't think it's going to be a bank holiday.


Philred87

The funeral will definitely be a bank holiday Probably a few others too


ThereWillBeGoals

>The prime minister and the queen have agreed that the day of the state funeral will be a “Day of National Mourning.” This has also led to planning issues. **The day will effectively be a bank holiday, although it will not be named as such**. If the funeral falls on the weekend or an existing bank holiday, an extra bank holiday will not be granted. **If the funeral falls on a weekday, the government does not plan to order employers to give employees the day off** — the documents say that is a matter between employees and their staff.


tenacious_teaThe3rd

>The prime minister and the queen have agreed Did The Queen posthumously agree this?


[deleted]

Yeah exactly. Truss needs a bounce in the polls. Enter the bank holiday week~~end~~


TiberiusCornelius

What's the point of the Tories if they choose profit even over the monarchy


Stones_Throw_Away_

Not really a bank holiday. It’s a day of mourning where employers will have the choice to give people the day off, or not. Effectively one, but not officially.


ShiroQ

If it's not mandatory to give the day off, there will be like 1% of employers that actually do that.


oscarpaterson

Tuchel's sacking was the last straw for her


Cowdude179

Boehly planned this all along, now Potter gets a mini pre-season

Did Boehly send someone to Avada Kedavra her?


srkkhb

NO COMEDY MEANS NO COMEDY


rich_valley

Couldn’t live with seeing Ronaldo in the Europa League


heyheyitsandre

I think she saw Trent’s defense on Napolis 3rd goal and just gave up


prathneo4

No. Thought of Lallana being manager was.


JakeNutters

Crofts (U23 manager) is the interim manager, Lallana is just the assistant.


Lord_Sauron

Assistant to the Manager Lallana. What a world.


FUCKSTORM420

Do I get a week off work then?


PasuljsKolenicom

No, you just can’t have fun because you should be sad


FUCKSTORM420

I just don’t think I’ll be able to focus on my work, I’m so devastated

krieginc

Klopp said he would have to change things in three days after the Napoli defeat. You got 2 weeks. Thank the queen.


E-M-P-Error

>can’t have fun because you should be sad So the Liverpool games wont be cancelled then?


10hazardinho

The president could be killed on live tv and the NFL wouldn’t cancel


Soren_Camus1905

They’d mention it in the booth then cut to commercial.


Large_Dungeon_Key

And there’s a drive into deep left field by Castellanos and that’ll be a home run


Aszneeee

Duckhaeris

They’d sell merch


miseducation

I know what you mean but they did actually cancel NFL games when Kennedy was killed. They also cancelled them for 9/11.


doobie3101

They played 2 days after Kennedy was shot. 9/11 was about a week after, but that was probably less due to mourning and more due to caution.


TheRocket2049

It was 100% due to caution. It took a decent junk of time before people really felt comfortable at big events or in tall buildings


syllabic

they also grounded all air traffic for a while


K_U

They didn’t *televise* games after Kennedy was assassinated, but the games were played.


DzikCoChujemHamuje

Also 9/11 was more about safety. If a terrorist organization was to attack again targetting a football game attendes by thousands and televised to millions would definitely be a possibility.


MondoDukakis

The first Cubs home game after 9/11 was honestly pretty uplifting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cmd-n56kGvo


[deleted]

As god intended


HunterThompsonsentme

This got a laugh outta me. It's sooo true. We wouldn't even cancel college ball. Hell we'd probably cancel NFL games *before* cancelling SC-Clemson


kylemclaren7

Only the super bowl would be cancelled after the SEC title game lol

GOT THAT? NO FUN AND NO LAUGHING, ENGLAND


dhillshafer

Been an Arsenal supporter since 1999. Finally made it over for a match at the Emirates. Arsenal v Everton, Sept 11, 2022. I feel so selfish but, fuck my life.


ubiquitous_archer

Tickets to see Everton v West Ham next week, first ever trip to Goodison, I feel you


rodri_1691

I cannot believe it. The same as you but I had already two failed attempts this year: - First in April vrs Brighton. I tested positive for corona the day before. - second for the preseason game against Nürnberg. I was assigned a Test for that day. - and now this. I fly tomorrow...


arsle

In the same boat man.. Me and my gf flying in from Sweden for my birthday tomorrow. She planned this weekend for ages and bought us tickets for the Everton game etc. Been so excited for this.. Now its just darkness


Mruc3yk

Nothing selfish in that, it’s more selfish from the royal family that they get themselves the right to get mourned for for days.


Aszneeee

they don’t care about non-royal people but want working class to forget everything for 2 weeks and only cry


IncidentalIncidence

lol the dude on the BBC was like "the cost-of-living crisis that we were talking about today is now, of course, insignificant" and I was like, yeah, I get it, the queen dying is big news, but I can think of several million people for whom that is still very significant


Blewfin

Haha, all the toffs the BBC have rolled out today are hilarious. They've only read about normal people in books.


StiffWiggly

It's a reminder that they see it as a nuisance, and don't actually care that it's critically important for a lot of people.


cechmeoutt

Of course you still have to go to work for those 2 weeks. They just cancel all your fun stuff.


OldGodsAndNew

No sports or comedy for 2 weeks. But you only get 1 day off work, plebs


hypnodrew

I think they genuinely think we're all mortified, as if we haven't been faced with old folk dying every single day for the last three years, some of whom we'd actually met


[deleted]

It perplexes me really, royals from anywhere can fuck off.


ALaccountant

Its not selfish of you to be upset about that. Its actually kind of ridiculous for all these events to be cancelled because of her death.


Aszneeee

same, imagine cancelling everything for 2 weeks for everyone because queen died, instead of paying minute of silence on every pitch cancel everything in the whole country and cry at home, pathetic


anarcholimitless

We'll start having conversations about the actual legacy of the Royals in the next few years, though. The Queen was loved by many and much more popular than the family itself, now there's a King the criticism will stack up once this mourning period is over. Hopefully soon they'll fall into obscurity where they belong.


Ar-Curunir

It's not selfish; the royal family and the entire monarchy is selfish.


MiraquiToma

See if you can nick a ticket to the wake!


wheeno

Not selfish


skyshgykghykkh

You knew it was 9/11. Its your fault


geekfreak42

it's 11/9 in the UK

Fucking weird, isn’t it? She was 96.

Pickford: Injured and out for a big game Queen: No problem, Toffees, watch this


Vimjux

How the fuck do you cancel comedy? What I can’t even laugh for the next fortnight? Imma put on some standup on Netflix - fuck the monarchy


AkilleezBomb

Netflix gonna region lock all comedies from UK Netflix for a week.


Dry-Sport-6194

Sport documentaries and shows too, mourn


tarkardos

* *comedy events have been cancelled.* Why is r/soccer still up then?


Gluroo

because its not funny


Joshvir262

Bevause its not Communicado official


Gyokan7

Weird, didn't happen when my nan went.


matgweller316

Well yeah that's because god didn't give your nan special blood that's better than everyone else's and is why we must give up all our gold and land /s


TheSqueebMonster

Insane decision. This isn't the 1800's


CC-W

No comedy events which means I dont have to watch Diego Llorente play as a CB. Tears in my eyes


maxime0299

Bit of an overreaction surely


patchypubes

Yeah it wasnt exactly untimely or unexpected


science87

Not sure about the rest of the UK, but I am mourning the fact we're stuck with King Charles the Turd for the next 20-30 years. I was holding out hope she'd live to around 110.


joseba_

North Korea holding institutional mourning days and presenters forcibly tearing up on live TV: look at these idiots UK does it: understandable


Ranjith_Unchained

Put a shirt on vs empowering meme


jorgelongo2

imagine Spain making us mourn Juan Carlos for 10 days lmao

I mourn every day I'm reminded he's still alive


daboatfromupnorth

“You don’t get to watch entertainment, but you still have to go to work, except if you’re the one that provides the entertainment” Wtf man


OrderWooden

What's disrespectful about people playing football ffs. Don't understand this "out of respect" bollocks


arandomnumber1

Cant have fun when queen dies


Nyrobotsteve

Royal Family is selfish enough to think everyone actually cares and wants to take the fun part out of working class peoples lives so that they get all the attention for a couple weeks.


MrGoalden

So no one in the uk can have fun watching footy cuz a 100 year old person died


Nrozek

Don't you see? dying of old age is a tragedy.. no one saw it coming and she had like... at least a few months more to go. Travesty.


kjm911

Oh for fuck sake. What a fucking boring weekend. No sport or comedy. Just the fucking news!


Mr_CheeseGrater

Not even actual fucking news. Just the same old shit said about the queen for a week.


startled-giraffe

Don't worry if you somehow lose signal for BBC 1 you can find the exact same programming being broadcast on BBC 2!


Brugyx

Serie a, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and La liga still on. Dortmund vs Leipzig Saturday 14:30. I would watch that if I were you :)


Olester14

For fucks sake

Are you now King's Park Rangers?

just Park Rangers

this is hilarious but please delete, comedy is illegal at the moment


PornFilterRefugee

He’ll write it on his hand so he can remember


sharpieforum

With all due respect, the economy is still recovering from COVID. If the Royal Family does care about The Kingdom they would just keep things going.


lollypop44445

Well its just the fun times gone, work still continues in sadness


Lord_Schelb

imagine having a bar, or a comedy club, or so many other activities related to fun, and not be able to earn your money for weeks.


lollypop44445

You just replace the term party or comedy with mourning or remembrance and play some emotional music and you countered them


Ashyyyy232

These monarchs don't really give a fudge when a poor person dies, so why should one care bout them?


creative_penguin

Can’t let the poors have their fun, don’t they know someone important died?


mikevin99

You shall be sad for the next 10 days with nothing to get your mind off things, you peasants!


KevinDLasagna

It’s not even tragic either. A 98 year old has succumb to old age, not like she was killed or died suddenly at a younger age


Lord_Sauron

Hey, she was only 96!


simomii

96, a fucking kid. Me I'm an old man.


ben6212

Its sad when they go


DerridasCircle

Exactly jesus christ none of us need ten days of mourning


Bumi_Earth_King

I do after that performance midweek.


LordStarkgaryen

I think we should just cancel the rest of the season and just hand the trophy to whoever's in first at the moment


Coolica1

Cost of living crisis, let's piss off the people even more by cancelling their entertainment in memory of someone born into privilege and also not give them the week off as well. Piss off you out of touch cunts.


yeabroyea

Absolute joke why make people’s lives worse because someone died😭 all this is gonna do is make people pissed off at the monarchy even more lmao


Kant_essential

What about European club competitions. Surely a continental club should not give a fuck about a monarch dying. Are British teams then forfeiting their games?


Hurtelknut

I think it's hilarious that it's 2022 and in one of the most advanced countries in the world there still exists a separated class of people chosen by god who not only live in a palace. They also, after their matriarch has died, get to tell some guy to inform the nation that they are sad now, so everybody must stop having fun and be sad as well.


PFC1224

What a load of shite - interesting that football continued in 1952 when George VI died


Paddy31

Games truly gone


Ryuuken1127

Wait...I'm coming from the USA for Spurs v Leicester a week from Saturday...is that going to be called off now??


Psychocandy42

Extend the trip, come to Italy, come see Milan-Napoli on Sunday!


ThunderStella

Fuck me, I’m coming from Canada for the same game I hope to fuck it’s still on


pmmp123

Rip the queen but that’s just idiotic


pilgrimgunner

So an already congested season will now be even more so for no reason, cool.


VincentSasso

Couldn’t she have popped off in the summer?


2rio2

December World Cup would have been ideal time. So inconsiderate.


BoxOfNothing

These cunts live in an entirely different reality to the rest of us


gimmeakissmrsoftlips

Are we mourning all through the weekend? If so when does the mourning end so we can do football again?


Idontlikemeeither2

Think we all care about their Mum and Grandmother passing, did we have a day off when my Mum died? No. Get to fuck. Carry on as normal because nothing has changed for 99.9% of us.


dfla01

But you don’t understand. She’s given her LIFE to serving the country!


msbr_

Let's gooo potter training time


jorgelongo2

no fun allowed for two weeks because one person died. Monarchists are the absolute worst


Aszneeee

imagine all the people flying to london for PL matches paying hundreds just to realize they fly for nothing as queen died


AnduwinHS

Flying to Leeds for the first game I'd ever get to see of them in the Premier League. Flights and hotel paid for already. I'll be fucking livid if the game is cancelled on Monday


ReadsStuff

Afraid it will be cancelled, yeah. Nights out in Leeds are actually pretty good though and I guarantee they're not shutting the pubs for 10 days - can't think of anything more likely to start a riot.


kinyibest

Can they punish you if you dont cancel your event?


[deleted]

We’ve lost many great Arsenal fans over the years, bin laden, and now the queen, devastated


Beggnivia

Do people really care ? That's so weird to me.


14_SNOO_53

Younger people generally don't give a fuck

Ughh. It’s the only thing us working class folk have got left and they’re taking that away as well


sjekky

Pathetic. Let 60,000 pay tribute on Saturday
