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
Suppose Liverpool v Wolves falls into the comedy events section
Lallana's Brighton v O'Neil's Bournemouth probably the same
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
You would’ve thought Lallana murdered that guys family
So dedicated. Felt almost like a teammates troll account. I suspect origi
The Queen died to give Liverpool time to get their shit together
Queens last words "Play Trent in midfield".
Well he can do less damage there tbh!
Stamford Bridge falls under a Comedy venue
More of a tragedy, lately.
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?
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
Especially with Liverpool current form - I smell a decent opportunity for Ajax to pick up some hard needed points
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
And the away fans too. They already booked very expensive plane tickets en hotel rooms
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
Since Man Utd is playing tonight, I’m thinking UEFA doesn’t give a fuck and the matches will be played.
It's too close to get postponed, can't judge off that
Are people actually thinking international competitions would be cancelled because of this? Bit of a stretch imo
I’m a bit pissed cause we had a chance, now you’ll be all rested😩
Did you watch them yesterday? They did all the resting on the pitch already.
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
Wow Brighton really are well-rum
This will do wonders to a fixture list cut through by fucking Word Cup.
No worries the players can handle 4 matches per week
Just buy some bunk beds and let them sleep on a training grounds. Simple.
Comedy is cancelled bro
It's not comedy, FA will legit make them play 4 matches a week
Just for the PL clubs
not for everyone else lol
Ain't Canada included? Dunno if their league plays now.
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
The poors can have their petty amusements
i would much rather watch Madrid play then to mourn for 10 days lol
Man Utd have a home game starting in 45min, is that still going ahead?
West Ham too
I'd assume it does or they would have to reimburse the sociedad fans
Give us a bank holiday then, I'm despondent here lads
19th September will be
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.
The funeral will definitely be a bank holiday
Probably a few others too
>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.
>The prime minister and the queen have agreed
Did The Queen posthumously agree this?
Yeah exactly. Truss needs a bounce in the polls.
Enter the bank holiday week~~end~~
What's the point of the Tories if they choose profit even over the monarchy
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.
If it's not mandatory to give the day off, there will be like 1% of employers that actually do that.
Tuchel's sacking was the last straw for her
Boehly planned this all along, now Potter gets a mini pre-season
The Queen was a Horcrux
Did Boehly send someone to Avada Kedavra her?
NO COMEDY MEANS NO COMEDY
Couldn’t live with seeing Ronaldo in the Europa League
I think she saw Trent’s defense on Napolis 3rd goal and just gave up
No. Thought of Lallana being manager was.
Crofts (U23 manager) is the interim manager, Lallana is just the assistant.
Assistant to the Manager Lallana. What a world.
Do I get a week off work then?
No, you just can’t have fun because you should be sad
I just don’t think I’ll be able to focus on my work, I’m so devastated
You better be crying 🔫
Klopp said he would have to change things in three days after the Napoli defeat. You got 2 weeks. Thank the queen.
>can’t have fun because you should be sad
So the Liverpool games wont be cancelled then?
The president could be killed on live tv and the NFL wouldn’t cancel
They’d mention it in the booth then cut to commercial.
And there’s a drive into deep left field by Castellanos and that’ll be a home run
like bt sport few minutes ago
This assassinations is bought to you by Slimjims.
"oh yeaaaaa brotherrrrrrrr" - Randy Savage RIP
“Fanduels offering you free 100$ to bet on who’s the next president”
(Sad FOX sports injury music plays)
The FOX robot takes down the portrait of Biden and slams the new one of Kamala on as an eagle screeches from behind.
"This presidential assassination announcement is brought to you by bud light"
"This presidential assassination announcement is brought to you by... Pacific Life. *A promise that today, tomorrow or ten years from now, we'll be there*."
They’d sell merch
I know what you mean but they did actually cancel NFL games when Kennedy was killed. They also cancelled them for 9/11.
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.
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
they also grounded all air traffic for a while
They didn’t *televise* games after Kennedy was assassinated, but the games were played.
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.
The first Cubs home game after 9/11 was honestly pretty uplifting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cmd-n56kGvo
As god intended
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
Only the super bowl would be cancelled after the SEC title game lol
Rooting for king Daemon
Haaland just signed for City, he can't transfer to Buckingham Palace just yet.
Just like any self respecting member of the 7 kingdoms
[Unfortunatley for him, she lived long enough to send him some bad news](https://i.imgflip.com/6spvsz.jpg)
GOT THAT? NO FUN AND NO LAUGHING, ENGLAND
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.
Tickets to see Everton v West Ham next week, first ever trip to Goodison, I feel you
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...
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
Nothing selfish in that, it’s more selfish from the royal family that they get themselves the right to get mourned for for days.
they don’t care about non-royal people but want working class to forget everything for 2 weeks and only cry
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
Haha, all the toffs the BBC have rolled out today are hilarious. They've only read about normal people in books.
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.
Of course you still have to go to work for those 2 weeks. They just cancel all your fun stuff.
No sports or comedy for 2 weeks. But you only get 1 day off work, plebs
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
It perplexes me really, royals from anywhere can fuck off.
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.
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
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.
It's not selfish; the royal family and the entire monarchy is selfish.
See if you can nick a ticket to the wake!
You knew it was 9/11. Its your fault
it's 11/9 in the UK
Never forget /u/dhillshafer
It is wild this is reality in 2022.
Fucking weird, isn’t it? She was 96.
Pickford: Injured and out for a big game
Queen: No problem, Toffees, watch this
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
Netflix gonna region lock all comedies from UK Netflix for a week.
Sport documentaries and shows too, mourn
* *comedy events have been cancelled.*
Why is r/soccer still up then?
because its not funny
Bevause its not Communicado official
Weird, didn't happen when my nan went.
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
Insane decision. This isn't the 1800's
No comedy events which means I dont have to watch Diego Llorente play as a CB. Tears in my eyes
Bit of an overreaction surely
Yeah it wasnt exactly untimely or unexpected
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.
North Korea holding institutional mourning days and presenters forcibly tearing up on live TV: look at these idiots
UK does it: understandable
Put a shirt on vs empowering meme
imagine Spain making us mourn Juan Carlos for 10 days lmao
I mourn every day I'm reminded he's still alive
“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”
What's disrespectful about people playing football ffs. Don't understand this "out of respect" bollocks
Cant have fun when queen dies
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.
So no one in the uk can have fun watching footy cuz a 100 year old person died
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.
Oh for fuck sake. What a fucking boring weekend. No sport or comedy. Just the fucking news!
Not even actual fucking news. Just the same old shit said about the queen for a week.
Don't worry if you somehow lose signal for BBC 1 you can find the exact same programming being broadcast on BBC 2!
Serie a, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and La liga still on. Dortmund vs Leipzig Saturday 14:30. I would watch that if I were you :)
For fucks sake
Are you now King's Park Rangers?
That's how it goes
just Park Rangers
Queen Consort’s Park Rangers.
QPR, the Camilla of Football Clubs.
Yours is the last club I would expect to complain
Queen's Park and all
Sidenote, what are England gonna sing at the world cup now?
Personally think this is a good time to make Talkin the Hardest the new anthem
God save the King
Will Harry Kane be able to learn the words in time?
this is hilarious but please delete, comedy is illegal at the moment
He’ll write it on his hand so he can remember
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.
Well its just the fun times gone, work still continues in sadness
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.
You just replace the term party or comedy with mourning or remembrance and play some emotional music and you countered them
These monarchs don't really give a fudge when a poor person dies, so why should one care bout them?
Can’t let the poors have their fun, don’t they know someone important died?
You shall be sad for the next 10 days with nothing to get your mind off things, you peasants!
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
Hey, she was only 96!
96, a fucking kid. Me I'm an old man.
Its sad when they go
Exactly jesus christ none of us need ten days of mourning
I do after that performance midweek.
I think we should just cancel the rest of the season and just hand the trophy to whoever's in first at the moment
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.
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
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?
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.
What a load of shite - interesting that football continued in 1952 when George VI died
Games truly gone
Wait...I'm coming from the USA for Spurs v Leicester a week from Saturday...is that going to be called off now??
Extend the trip, come to Italy, come see Milan-Napoli on Sunday!
Fuck me, I’m coming from Canada for the same game
I hope to fuck it’s still on
Rip the queen but that’s just idiotic
So an already congested season will now be even more so for no reason, cool.
Couldn’t she have popped off in the summer?
December World Cup would have been ideal time. So inconsiderate.
These cunts live in an entirely different reality to the rest of us
Are we mourning all through the weekend? If so when does the mourning end so we can do football again?
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.
But you don’t understand. She’s given her LIFE to serving the country!
Let's gooo potter training time
no fun allowed for two weeks because one person died. Monarchists are the absolute worst
imagine all the people flying to london for PL matches paying hundreds just to realize they fly for nothing as queen died
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
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.
Can they punish you if you dont cancel your event?
We’ve lost many great Arsenal fans over the years, bin laden, and now the queen, devastated
Do people really care ? That's so weird to me.
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
Pathetic. Let 60,000 pay tribute on Saturday
