Yep, Southampton born and bred. I'm kinda glad that we don't get to choose which teams we support. Makes it more fun that way!! You?

I must confess, I've never taken any interest in Scottish football except when Aberdeen were upsetting the apple cart all those years ago, I loved it! .........But if I'd known who Fergie would turn out to be, I'd probably have viewed them differently!

Haha yeah. The only 'choice' would be if you have 2 teams in your city and your parents etc have no influence.

I'm a Dundee United supporter myself. English team is Reading. I've worked with a guy who runs their community program for the last 2 summers. Plus Noel Hunt went from Dundee Utd to Reading a few years back. My mate is also the Reading mascot and was the England mascot at the Brazil game!

True. My team's rivals are Dundee FC. Their ground is 120 yards up the road on the other side. I could see their stadium from my old seat!

Not really been able to get into MLS properly yet. There doesn't seem to be any reasoning behind when games are played so I have no idea when they're on. With games back in the UK I know there's Sat lunchtime, 3pm, some evening kick offs and the usual Sunday's. With the MLS they're on different days and times with no rhyme or reason to either.

Totally OT to anything here. I'm just posting it for your amusement.

Yep, I'll be cheering on my fellow Scottish team Celtic. Won't be surprised if they pull of a win tonight.

And I remember first seeing that video, thought it was hilarious!

Thanks for the 3 points last weekend!


Not the start Celtic had in mind though.

What I don't get is why soccer players (the women obviously) look so much hotter on the pitch than they do outside of the pitch?

For a few case in points.



vs





vs



There are 2 exceptions to this rule of course, because no matter where they go Kelley O'Hara and Alex Morgan are always hot.
