Football on a Sunday


The Business
Oct 25, 2003
In a world of my own.
)Just in the process of doing a mortgage for an Italian bloke at the moment. Mad Inter fan. Anyway was talking about football and I was demostrating my complete lack of interest in Italian football when a good point cropped up.

He said he is annoyed as he has to work on a Saturday and doesn't get a chance to see his local team Fulham (Some might say this is a good thing
) as in Italy most games are on a Sunday.

Anyway it got me thinking. What if Southend played most games on a sunday?

Personally I can see a plus side that Sunday is a really boring day. If I had my saturdays free I could do a few more jobs that I struggle to do as I have football every sat such as opticians or barbers etc. I could also watch a few of my mates who play on a saturday which I always enjoy.

For the club I can see benefits. We must have lots of people who either work saturdays or maybe play locally who cant make games. Not that I am sure its a real good thing but there must be loads of closet yids, w%&k hammers who might come along too and a 2nd team etc.

Finally for all you that come in via the roads and rail in may be a bit easier transport wise.

Personally I love Saturdays but I am just playing devils advocate.
