Any other football (Soccer) fans here?

Any other football (Soccer) fans here?
I've been a big Newcastle united supporter (despite being at the other end of the country) since I was about 11, and more so over the last few years, despite our relegation. Watched them destroy Westham last night 5 - 0 and thought I'd post a thread to see if anyone else follows the greatest sport on earth? Tongue

Also here's a video of the highlights of the win....I'd say give it a watch Wink

I tried to get into football many moons ago as most of my friends were rabid football fans.
But try as I might I could not get into it, where they a saw a titanic struggle between rival teams, played with skill, cunning and grace, I saw a bunch of blokes kicking a ball around.



You can fix ignorance, you can't fix stupid.

haha. Fair enough. It would seem most of the forum agree with your point of view anyway seeing how little response this thread has got so I'll just shut up about football and carry on laughing at religion. Just thought I'd mix it up a bit though....you're all boring!

No no, you see: you've got it all wrong. Football is boring.

It's the most followed sport in the world...so your opinion, whilst an acceptable viewpoint to you is completely 100% wrong and there is no way to prove otherwise

Nice use of the Appeal to Popularity fallacy. I don't care what the majority of the population thinks.

The majority of the world is religious and the majority of religious people are Catholic for fucks sake! Fuck the majority! (actually, on second thoughts I'd rather not fuck them).

Besides, in my opinion: Most people are idiots (and even geniuses can still make massive intellectual errors).

I was kidding! I rarely make arguments that include me declaring you are 100% wrong and there is no way to prove otherwise.

Although there must be a reason for why it is pretty popular! Wink

Yeah! Most people are idiots!

That's why the pop charts are full of shit.

I actually like soccer more than other sports like basketball, baseball, tennis, etc. (but not as crazily as a lot of other soccer fans).

It's a game that requires a lot of practice, skill, and stamina as well (just like many other sports). It's also a good workout for your abs when you kick the ball. That's why the body shape of soccer players are leaner and more fit than the bodies of baseball players because they have to run so much during the game.

I don't have any favorite teams, though. I don't really start to support any team except when they start playing. And I rarely watch soccer aside from the World Cup games. But of course playing soccer is a lot more fun than just sitting and watching it. Btw, I like to call it "soccer" instead of "football" as you've noticed. But either way that's not a big deal. Tongue
