Soccer for me is an every-four-years thing. If MLS puts a team in Detroit, I'd jump on it. The English Premiership is cool, and if I picked an overseas team it'd be from that league (certainly not the filthy corrupt Italian league) but it's hard to pick a team when they're all kinda the same from here.

See why I can't really pick a Premiership team? I always thought Chelsea was kind of like, say, the Vancouver Canucks - always a decent team that you can't make fun of for lousy play, but kind of nondescript anyway. The impression that I have is that Man U is the evil empire team, what with them having some kind of partnership with the Yankees and all - that and the rep that I've heard that people actually from Manchester go for City instead.

Thats the way it used to be, but since Roman Abramovic bought the club they have spent something like 300 million pounds and signed all the best players in the world. The past couple of seasons the premiership has been very predictable.....WELL....until this season. biggrin.gif P.S. I reeeaaalllyyy hate there manager he managed Fc Porto to beat my beloved Celtic in the Uefa Cup final in 2003. They cheated. sad.gif

Huge fan here. Started following about eight years ago. Arsenal, Rangers, LA Galaxy, and the U.S. National Team.

GlasgowCelticWing, maybe we should meet up and have a one-on-one hooligan fight. I'll bring the crowbars. laugh.gif

All the things you do to me and all the things you said,
I just can't get enough.
I just can't get enough
We slip and slide and we fall in love and I just can't seem to get enough of...
Du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du

Same for me, Soccer is an every 4 years thing. I might start watching with Beckham playing in the states but I hear he got hurt so I probably won't. If it is on FSN and I have nothing else to do it I'll watch it. I'm more of a casual fan.

I am still pissed about Bayern messing up at home. I still feel that they missed Schweinsteiger a lot. But yeah, as for the champs final, I predict Utd and Liverpool.

When that clown Vitor Bahia or whatever their keepers name was...CLEARLY came out of the box with the ball in his hand. That was an injustice if I have ever seen one. Chelsea is VILE. I hate them with a passion...Mourinho and Abromavich are incarnations of the devil as far as I am concerned. I hope Robben leaves them for Barca. Dutchmen have no business playing for idiots such as Mourinho.
