    This is just about perfect, but how do you change the time zone?

    What if you want to see the times in your current country and not when the matches are happening in Africa? I didn't see how to do that. I of course could have missed it, then I would suggest it could be made easier to figure out.

    If they left this off it would be simple to allow you to choose your time zone reference on the side like the full screen button.

    This is such a good way to represent the data that it seems a shame to leave off a little thing like Timezone conversion.

      Could be that

      being a Spanish website and (time in Madrid) = (time in Cape Town), they figured it wouldn't matter.

        Yeah, but timezone would allow more people to use it.

        Thus increasing traffic, thus increasing ad revenue. Plus I am sure there are some Spaniards living in other timezones.

    And it's in that ever-popular add-in - Flash. Good job everyone can see that. Well, there are those who can't, but, they never miss Flash, right? Nothing any good ever created in it. How's the Sun pullout these days fanbois?

    God forbid!

    you could miss kick off... God forbid!

    Why does everyone, everything and their dog, think that everyone else, everything else and their dog too, are even vaguely interested in football?

    Planner's handy for knowing when to hit the shops or good restaurant though. Cheers.

    rubbish

    I have one from The Sun that has the UK kick off times. I only care about the England games anyway. Who gives a toss about the games with the other countries in? Such a boring post. Find something more interesting to do.

      Ah that'll be the 4 line pull out...

      ...or does it bang on about 1966 for 10 pages!

      Why you might want to give a toss...

      I care not for football. Cretinous game played by overpaid oiks, in my opinion. However, basic strategy suggests you *should* give a very important toss so you can see the strategies and tactics in place for the teams that the English team may end up playing.

      Or was your post an indication that you don't think England will progress beyond the pre-scheduled fixtures?

      Bootnote: Not a boring post at all, even though I detest football. Worth every minute of my time to see the iFanboy's reactions. What do they see? A little blue lego brick or somesuch? :-)
