Would love for this thread to be about World Football.

I saw that Bhawk is a season ticket holder for soccer here in the states. I follow the Red Bull because of proximity.

I'm a huge soccer fan. Favorite team in all sports is the US National Mens Team.

Nothing is better than the English Premier League. Tottenham supporter. And a big fan of what Tim Howard & Landon Donovan have done at Everton, along with Dempsey at Fulham.

Anyone else?

My wife is the soccer player of the house. She just joined a coed team down here.
I do enjoy Lionel Messi

Some great Champions League matches today and tomorrow!

Last week couldn't have been a worse one for Arsenal fans...

Tottenham supporter.


The camera angle at White Hart Lane drives me nuts.

Newcastle's my Premier League side. Howay The Lads!

Looking very forward to the MLS season and cheering on Sporting Kansas City. Did I mention that the home opener is on St. Patrick's Day?

I was born in Sheffield, England and crossed the ocean when I was 10. Of the 2 Sheffield teams; mine was Wednesday (yes, they named their team for a day of the week...I never did ask why).

They fell on hard times but are slowly inching their way back to the Championship League. Don't know if they will ever make the Premier League again, the team owners there have deep pockets to buy the star players

Still watch the odd game on Fox on the weekends.

Been a big fan since the late 70's when I was a supporter of the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers, and use to go to Lockhart frequently to catch the matches.

My bro is a Spurs fans. Myself, I'm a big supporter of Everton (The People's Club) in the EPL, aside from their customary slow start, they're starting to pick it up a bit, final 8 in the FA Cup for this year. It'd have been nice to see Donovan stick around. He was a much needed offensive skill player.

Big supporter of the USMNT, of course.
I think they've got the Italians here in Genoa at the end of the month.

Follow the Red Bulls a bit, but they're a hard side to root for, poor front office, in regards to selecting the personnel. But they've solidified the D here a bit, still need a GK, I think Marquez is heading up to the MF this season.

Going to be a tall order today for Chelsea in Naples today.
I'd say AvB's job might be on the line today.

Arsenal is a disaster, I can't see Wenger holding on much longer.
All those holes in the defense, and they don't get anybody during the transfer window?
Van Persie is going to want out of there soon, unless they can do something to quick here.

Almost forgot our MLS team: Toronto FC. Fans are getting restless after a few years in the League with not much to show for it

As a guy growing up in NY in the 60's, soccer didn't exist till Pele. And, even after that it was a short trip from Soccer to carrying a "man purse." Not that there's anything wrong with it.

For North American teams I like Portland Timbers (no idea why) and outside of North America Newcastle. Dont watch many matches as I dont have cable but do watch online from time to time.

For fans how are the stadiums in Columbus, Chicago, or Toronto as those are the closest to me?

The Thierry Henry Return To Glory Project was a joke, IMO.

The Italian media was hilarious after the destruction of Arsenal by AC Milan...one paper called Arsenal's play a "poverty of ideas."

I believe one of the Milan owners wondered aloud if Van Persie would want to play in Milan...

IPowrie; the Toronto stadium is a nice little field strictly used for soccer. It seats around 20,000 plus and there are a lot of sell outs during the season. The only draw back is its pretty open and down by Lake Ontario so in March/April it can get pretty chilly with the wind blowing off the lake, but in summertime its a nice venue. Its a short trip by public transit from downtown.

The stadium is built on the old CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) grounds where CNE stadium used to be. Saw the Allman Brothers for the first there in 1990 for their reunion tour, a show I'll never forget

aresenal got crushed by milan and it was embarrassing for all EPL teams if you ask me. Arsenal is supposed to be top flight, but they let go their stars. RVP is next.

Bob Bradley coached Princeton and lived in my town. I like him a lot as a person and he did alright as the National Team coach.

i love watching fox soccer on saturday mornings. best way to start the weekend. looking forward to sunday's tottenham arsenal game.

San Jose Quake fan here . I also like Houston ( formally San Jose ) they play a really nice short passing game and are coached by Dominic Kinear who went to my high school. I've always been a fan of Dutch soccer , Ajax , but lately Barcelona just blows me away. Messi runs like the ball is tied to his foot and the ball skills of the team as a whole are is apleasure to watch. And everyone works hard to win the ball when on defense . My only complaint is the drama when fouled.

It seems that the drama is higher in La Liga all the way around, at least the matches I've seen.

Serie A has my vote for divers and drama queens.

In the Napoli-Chelsea match today, a Chelsea players forearm grazed the chin of Campanaro, and the guy acted like he'd been shot in the face, even did a 180 after throwing both hands to his face to make sure the ref got a full view of his anguish.

Funny thing is, ref didn't call it, ball got played back in the box, and Campanaro had a suddenly miraculous recovery, and got back into the play. Yellow card worth imo.

BTW, pretty good open match in Naples, with Napoli winning 3-1, with both sides defense looking shaky.

So that'd be 7 goals given up by EPL sides in the last 2 weeks in Italy, just dreadful.

Barcelona has so many great players, yet so many of them are great big divers as well.
The champion league semi against Real Madrid last year was a disgrace to football.
They were going down if they felt a breeze.

Yet weeks earlier in the Final of the Spanish Cup they played it straight up and lost.
Guess they figured they couldn't win playing Madrid that way.

Then they turn around and play a admirable final against Manchester United.

I don't understand why with all their talent they resort to the diving.

Some like Xavi and Messi are above that and I admire them for it, the rest
not so much.

Keeping my eye out on the Polish Wonder, Lukas Poloski, striker for Cologne. He is bad ass and will be coming to a team near you fairly soon when he goes free agent.

Big fan of the women's game as my daughter is a player, and has been since she was four. We recently got to attend the US Women's NT game against New Zealand, awesome. The US scored a goal in the last minute of regulation to tie it and then at the very end of extra time to win it 2-1, both goals by Alex Morgan. Very exciting. Abbey Wombauch is a beast!

DC United fan here. Very excited about the new season. I'm a big fan of the mens and womens national teams as well. Looking forward to finding out what players are going to Italy for the men's friendly coming up soon.

I grew up playing american football, but have gradually lost interest in everything to do with that but the Redskins. Even that is getting harder and harder to get into since they always seem to be more interested in winning the offseason rather than the actual games. NFL has gotten too big for my tastes.

I grew to love soccer watching my daughter's teams play and started following DC United from the begining. My daughter is going to be playing next year in college and I'm looking forward to those games alot. Hopefully United will stay in DC and I'll have them for awhile too.

Nice thread, so thanks for starting it up. Vamos United! And may the road go on forever!
