Can’t see why, it’s televised, so those who want to watch it can, those who want to watch football should be able to do so at the 3pm kickoff time.

It's going to be a family's funeral for one person's husband of over 70 years, four people's dad and a grandfather and great grandfather.
There will be 30 people there.
If you're not interested in it get on with your life.
There's no need for all the negative comments or people trying to be funny.

In a country where people take the knee, a protest triggered by a career criminal in a foreign country, in a sudo show of respect and then think the death of a war hero is inconvenient then some people really need to give their heads a good wobble.

I can’t imagine any sports taking place at the same time as the funeral. Wont be able to move to Sunday due to knock on effect on night games so probs will be moved to lunchtime or teatime.

Idiotic.

Yet another example of how the Royal Family are oblivious to the sentiment of the country. Out of touch.
Unfortunately for them a backless will follow after a respectful time. Shooting themselves in the foot once again.

And I am a sympathiser. To an extent.

All this swearing and blasphemy is not very ladylike is it?

FFS the Duke of Edinburgh (wife of our Queen) has just died and will be laid to rest next Saturday stop moaning and respect a great man. 🇬🇧👍

So what if it’s an early or late kick off? It’s not like thousands are attending footy matches is it?

People on here would still moan if they won £100 million on the lottery. 🙄

I am totally happy to watch the match at 12.40 or 5pm.
The man was a credit to our country and made so many personal sacrifices to love and support our Queen, who is only disrespected by Extreme Left Wing Idiots most of whom (around supporting Nlackpool) will be mushrooms 🍄.......🤣🤣🚌#88
You can all exchange funny handshakes at 3pm Bus (Or have I got the wrong tribe?) 🤣🍄

Whatever you think of the Duke this should not have been on a Saturday at 3pm...most people work Monday to Friday and look forward to a Saturday afternoon of sport....I dont begrudge anyone wanting to watch it but for me Blackpool FC comes first and if it was a clash I would be watching the match and not a funeral...I really dont understand why the funeral isnt in the late morning like the trooping of the colour, royal weddings etc etc...sorry if that offends people but thats my two penneth

No more of a hero than a lot of our grandads, don't know the man so not going to speak badly about him, but he means nothing more to me than any other old man I'm not related to. I'd prefer a 3 o clock kick off because unlike him for most of his life, I have to work Saturday mornings. If we aren't capable of putting both on and letting the people choose what they prefer then so be it. No heads need to be wobbled.

The media overkill will put off public interest in the funeral another 6 days of repeat information
about the Princes life and interests will become quite tedious

It does make you wonder about the thought process - the cynic in me would suggest that US TV audiences were a consideration.

As long as it's not moved to Sunday then it's no issue.

So you might miss one game this season if it’s an early kick off?

How inconsiderate of the Royal family for choosing a 3pm Saturday funeral. 🙄

Yet we didn’t mind being inconvenienced with Sunday Kick-offs when we were in the Premier League! In fact how many clubs are beholden to Sky who says you kick off when we say! I’m a 3pm Saturday traditionalist by the way.

The cynic in me thinks at least Saturday will stop the clamour for a day off work.
It will be 12.30 rather than 5.
Given there's no one allowed to attend, do games have to be on Saturday?

Diana’s funeral was on a Saturday!

The home game against Carlisle was rearranged for Sunday.
We won 2-1 with a late goal from Carlisle. Clarke that was !

Some folk have short memories.
