Who knows, here's the official reason from the company...............

Charles Taylor, director at Farooqi's former employer Composite Prime, told Yahoo News UK: “It’s an exciting time for everyone in England and given the opportunity, we would have encouraged attendance to such an important football match. 

"Unfortunately on this occasion our employee lied, taking one day off sick to attend the football match on Wednesday 7 July.

"This was in breach of her employment contract and so we had no choice but to take the appropriate action. 

"As a business we value honesty and integrity, and we don't tolerate any employee taking advantage of our policies.

Quite right too she's a chancer.

Anyway, it's about time I took my annual week off sick while the weather is nice. :whistle

Sickening?

That's an odd choice of phrase.

How so?

Again... It was the forwards pace and movement that forced the defender into the error.

Had the defender not been there then it would almost certainly have been a goal anyway.

Great forward play. No luck and certainly not sickening.

Well that’s my take, could have went anywhere off the defender.

It seems, according to the BBC news, there's a game of football on tonight? 

Not sure if I'll watch it, depends what's on other channels. :rolleyes:

I've got a bit decision to make, where to place my free £10 bet.

Do I chase a big returns, a correct score or similar, or a "safer" bet and bet on the winner?

Alright Oaks, calm down. It’s absolutely understandable to be gutted at how England progressed. 
No it's not.

Any neutral who is gutted chooses to be so.

Very immature and irrational, all the moreso after the 16 month reality check we have just had.

Passionate rivalry is part of what makes football the beautiful game IMO. 

fair enough... but in many cases that has risen to xenophobic hatred which gets worse by the year.

Just because some people are xenophobic, it doesn’t mean I have to be for not wanting England to progress/ win a major tournament. Same as I wouldn’t want Morton winning the Scottish cup. 
 

This isn’t immature, it’s just part of the make-up of football for me (and many others). I don’t need you, FS or Oaks to agree but as usual, when views differ, the three of you take issue. In my opinion, that’s far more immature for fully grown men.

I said "in many cases" which was obviously a generalisation.

I wasn't calling you xenophobic, you poor wee sensitive soul!

Morton? I'd be happy for them to win any cup if we were already out as I have very good friends who would be celebrating and I'd be happy for them... just like the England game!

As for immature, I will let others be the judge of that based on your subsequent responses!

Is this immature?

FFS. Gutted? :blink:

Do you ever look in the mirror and think to yourself "There's something not quite right here"?

It spills into school bullying BEK.

That's one of the many areas where I have a problem with it.

None of this is benign.

This Anyone But England pish has nothing to do with not having a sense of humour about it either, which is the usual line of attack. It's thinly veiled anti-English pish.

Southgate continues to slightly alter the team, I think he's done this in every game.

When you look back over his tenure he's proving to be quite an intelligent manager.

Semi final of the world cup and now the final of the Euros. 

Just think, we (Scotland) drew with them, so we could have been playing tonight. :rolleyes:
