I'm still trying to get into soccer. Although I've been watching it more and more as of late, I try to stay away from MLS though. No fans, no atmosphere, pretty boring stuff lol.

I recommend waiting til the Confederations Cup is over so you don't get driven to the funny farm by those god-awful horns.

I hope Fox Sports continues in the future for Champions league coverage. I'm loving this. ESPN sucked at it and never aired games in HD nor cared about the pregame shows and such.

When I see you Red Wings,
I go out of my head,
I just can't get enough,
I just can't get enough,
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...

Nah not many other Raith Rovers fans. There's a couple of Celtic Fans and a couple of Rangers fans on here. You Sir are the only one on here representing the Kingdom of Fyfe......I think? unsure.gif

I'm a Man Utd fan but also follow Celtic and at the moment i'm not too convinced by Tony Mowbray and really think Paddy McCourt needs to play more games for Celtic to succeed

Not convinced by Mowbray myself either. He's been to forward in the press about his critisisim of the team and isn't doing himself any favours with that or the matter the team's been playing poorly. I can see him lasting the season at least but if he doesn't get his act together then I can see the return of the magnificent seven King Henrik Larsson happening alot sooner than I thaught he would to manage the team. Deffo agree about Paddy McCourt too he needs to get a run of games going to be able to build up some sort of fluency in the first team. Young Niall McGinn needs a run in there too that boy is turning out to be quite a find too scoring today against Killie also. Celtic have alot of really good players who are under performing and letting the team down. Hopefully Mogga can get them playing as a team again.

Agree with everything u said. I watched McCourt and McGinn both regulary when they played at Derry City and was abit annoyed when alot of celtic fans where saying that both will never make it at celtic but now im really happy as they are making those fans eat thier words lol. both players where absolute bargins

What happened? When I left it was just starting Extra Time. I was hoping my boy Keane would pull out another goal.

Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

Oh, now I see, apparently offsides handballs are legal now? UEFA rule changes need to be made more public.

Yep, Ireland cheated out of a World Cup place by the morons in charge of football.

First, FIFA basically changed the rules halfway through a Qualifying campaign to favour the big teams like France and Portugal who found themselves struggling to qualify (seeding the big teams to increase their chances of getting through).

Then, last night, not only do the officals miss 2 players offside from the freekick, a possible foul on Richard Dunne, but 2 frigging handballs by Henry that everyone else in the stadium saw!

It's almost 2010 and the idiots at FIFA still refuse to adopt Video Technology to help the officals. They say it will 'undermine the referees' - complete bollocks, it's proven in every other sport to be a great help to referees. (Even the NHL, who still try their best to mess it up)

Even if they introduced a Challenge system - even just one Challenge each for the Coaches - it would have saved this mess. (Same with hockey - the challenge system is great IMO) Players who dream about the playing in a World Cup, and the supporters who want to be their cheering their team on, all robbed of the chance by ridiculous officiating.

It seems to be the only sport I can think of that by its very nature actively encourages cheating. One of FIFA's mantras is 'Fair Play' - Fair play my arse!

And after that debacle last night I watched Brad May get robbed of a goal by more dopes!! ranting.gif
