    A dilemma!

    I need your help guys.

    I'm going to the Test Match on Saturday with my mate who lives up in Manchester.

    At 12.30, the England World Cup game kicks off - I've heard a rumour it may be shown on the big screen there, but if it isn't should I take my mate's offer of a pub next to the grund he can get us in?

    What would you do?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    I have also heard that there will be a big screen at the ground (from an interview with someone from LCCC or the ECB, so I guess it's reliable) so I guess you will get the best of both, or just watch the match in the LCCC bar (Do they have one? I guess so) so you can still keep an eye on the cricket.

    Anyway what ever you decide enjoy the games.

    My Dad suggested the LCCC bar, and there definitely is one, because my mate is working there today!

    You have to watch England, we get Test Series every year, but only to the WC Knockout stage once in four if we're lucky!

    True, but I still say watch it at the ground and then you get the best of both.

    OR

    You could go and watch the football and give me your ticket and I will go and watch the cricket for you

    Think we've decided to watch it on the bigscreen at the ground. I wonder if they could set a precedent and take lunch form 12.30 till 1.15?

    I believe as silly as it sounds they were seriously considering to change the lunch times

    It was brilliant - about 5 or 6 thousand left the Cricket just as play started to go and support the boys - then rushed back after the game!

    Unfortunately we missed Stewart's fantastic knock and 4 consecutive boundaries

    Did anyone see me on the Television - they showed us and I was right in the front of it!

    Yeah they showed the people watching the TV, but as I have no idea what you look like I couldn't say if I saw you.
