Default Soccer Fans Unite

Any supporters of the beautiful game here? Whether you call it soccer or football? Prem, MLS, Serie A, SPL, your local league? My club is Arsenal, who have been in fine form lately.

Haven't posted in a long while but I had to respond to this. I am a Manchester United supporter. Sadly I don't get to see much action on TV...thankfully there are other forums that help me around that issue. I mainly follow the EPL but, as a yank, I also follow the MLS (DC United). Hopefully I can score a ticket for when Beckham comes to town.

Arse huh? Big match coming up this weekend. Go United!

I was classed as a virtual outcast in Scotland because I don't watch football! Support St.Mirren at a push. I just find the game very boring - it is like watching a slowmotion game of table tennis with the ball going from one end of the table to another. I often think that I must be missing something and I try to watch a game but I just can't get into it. Thats just me though

I'm with you, but then again, many think that my sport of choice is boring. I assume, like baseball, that there is much more than meets the eye of a casual observer.

you could be right. I like watching AFL (Aussie Rules Football) - much more happening.

I usually play in an old man's league (>30) on Sundays, or pickup games when there's no league play. It's pretty casual. I like to catch the occasional game, but don't make a habit of it.

I actually enjoy watching a soccer game. hell I played for 17 years.


I wouldnt recommend playing for extended periods of time though. Everytime I stand up my ankles crack like crazy. I dont remember a time when at least one of my ankles were the size of a softball. I was a rather "aggressive" player

While I appreciate the athletic ability required to play the game of soccer and have all the respect in the world for the sport, I just can't watch it. It's not that "I don't get it", as I have been told, I just can't, and suspect most Americans just can't wrap themselves around a game that doesn't provide a lot of scoring. Baseball is slow and the scores sometimes low, but there is much more drama. Hockey is similar in frustration factor watching the back and forth, and back and forth, but at least there are fights and sudden death. Basketball sucks! 120-119, give me a break! You only need to watch the last 60 seconds. Which by the way can last 10 minutes! American football is exactly that, "AMERICAN FOOTBALL"!!! The ultimate team sport! Need I say more? I think not.

John

Beckham's home stadium will be about 5 miles from my house and I could care less.
