It is hoped that 30m will tune in for England vs Italy final,  plus maybe add another 5m for fan parks, pubs etc. That leaves perhaps 25m not bothering. Who on here won't be watching? What alternatives have you lined up?

Here's some ideas;

BBC2 -Land Of The Tiger, BBC personalities look back at their adventures in India, Bhutan and Bangladesh. 

Ch4- Scotland's Coastal Railways with Julie Walters.

Ch5- Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - film with Judi Dench and Bill Nighy. 

On the sports front,

SkySp 401- Golf- The John Deere Classic. 

SkySp 404 - rerun of England vs India women's T20 

SkySp 406 - Goodwood Festival of Speed

SkySp 408 - Highlights SOO Game2 followed by Highlights of Castleford vs St Helens 

410 - Tour de France highlights 

422- or even alternative football- Rerun of El Salvador vs Curaçao ( who?) in the Gold Cup from Texas. Nth and Central America's version of Euros. 

423 - LIVE Baseball Yankees vs Astros.

Add also streaming services and maybe settle down for a binge watch of DVDs. 

So who'll be watching what?

 

BTW I'm watching our boys gallantly but inevitably lose to Italy.

Gatting a new (ish) car delivered at 4pm on Sunday, so by 8pm I think I will still be driving round the empty streets of St Albans or sitting in the drive  playing "I wonder what that button does?".

Jam Eater  1.(noun. jam eeter) A Resident of Whitehaven or Workington. Offensive.  It is now a term of abuse that both towns of West Cumbria use for each other especially at Workington/Whitehaven rugby league derby matches.

Probably a live feed from Wembley.

I will be watching Best Marigold Hotel, which I always enjoy, a really poignant film, which I have always looked forward to, as I am 60 next year, until Covid Delta.

I think Penelope Wilton's characters overt racism & Maggie Smith's is partially typical of that generation & class. I love Maggie in this, her turnaround is amazing. Beautifully acted.

  • HawkMan changed the title to Sunday 8pm- Alternative Viewing -poll added.

Interesting alternative at 9pm Sky Comedy (113). Larry David- Curb Your Enthusiasm. I love this show but never realised this 1999 " prequel " existed. Larry tries to convince HBO to give him his own show. I'll record it, watch it after final unless England are being thrashed then I might be tempted to turn over sooner.

I've seen it, worth watching if you like Curb. Pretty sure Jeff is just his actual manager.

Will probably take a break from bingeing on the Tour de France coverage to keep an eye on it but not bothered either way who wins.

If it was a straight choice between the two then England's game wouldn't get a look in.

Old Faithful we never lose at Wembley

Putting up with the whining and bitching in Denmark has made me more interested. Our worst ones indulge in violence, their pontificate bitchiness.

I'm from an Irish background and was 1000% behind England. They are currently a great team and a credit to the country.
