Default The Official Football (Soccer) Thread

That's right. I know we got some footy fans in this here place and we got WC2010 coming up and it's going to be a blast! Especially when England falls once again before the Colonies.

Ok thats it, I'm saying it...... you're Scottish aren;t you? or maybe Northern England.... hmmm....am I right?

Been in the states a few years but just can't let go of old blighty

I'm looking forward to the World Cup, I always enjoy watching my team get knocked out of tournaments and then rehashing the travesty of '86

Thats why watching the Olympic hockey and cheering for Canada was awesome, a team I support actually WON!!

I'm 95% Scottish blood, born in England, so when a World Cup comes around, I support In-ger-lind. Cause Scotland never make it through to the finals, usually getting beat off Vatican City or Inner Mongolia on the way out of the qualifiers.
We got no realistic chance of winning the thing, other teams are far too technically superior to us. Although the English press would have the world believe that a) England ain't got a chance without Wayne Roony and b) England will win it WITH Rooney.
We'll win the first round phase with or without him. We'll lose to Germany in the semis on penalties. As usual.

Edit: @ Ned. Why the funk would a northern Englishman not support England? We ain't a different country, you know. Despite what the government would have you believe.


And, now that Newcastle are back in the Premier, we can select Steve Harper, best goalie in England.

Aaaah.....Yorkies. Not only a different country but also a different species. Tighter than a shark's arse at 50 fathoms. And they are soooooooo gobbie. They make Tonyhale and Rikky look like Trappist monks
I like their puddings, though.

lol Let me elbaorate on my logic, firstly we have this fine gentleman who clearly is a big fan of Red Dwarf, a cult BBC2 British TV show.
Secondly he named the thread "Football" and put "Soccer" in brackets.
And thirdly (and the reason for thinking Scottish or N.England, he says "Aye" frequently

And I didn't get from his post that he doesn't support England, just that he makes fun of them like 65 million other people on our little island

As for the Magpies getting back in the premier, thats good .... for them, now Norwich just need to just a coule of divisions .... that day will come and it will be the same day Satan skates to work lol

Back on topic, Joey, you put too much faith in Rooney, people do this, they done the same with Beckham and Liniker and Robson, Barnes, Waddle, Hoddle (what a load of twaddle ) , one man doesn't make a team and although Rooney is a good player, he's yet to show it on the international stage when it matters making him IMO not as great as people make out.
Ferdi's captain isn't he?... Now that might be interesting, thank god Beckham isn't in it, the guy is useless unless he gets a free kick within 25yrds.

Nope, I am 100% American, and 100% Texan. My family is Scottish though, and a portion of it is also Yorkie. I say Aye alot because i frequent footy sites a lot and have picked up on the lingo over the years, that it's easier to adapt and speak the Queen's English so everyone understands...Not that I am posing or anything because I am not, but nevertheless, I am a huge fan of British culture.

None taken. If anything after revealing that, I thought I may have offended.

Of course. He's the only person to been banished from heaven for having a hideously horrible chin.

Lifeboats and a football career. Who would have guessed!

Well, public TV in the United States had a huge role in it. In fact, here in Dallas, ours was the first station in America to broadcast British Comedies. The first? None other than Monty Python's Flying Circus! You pick up a lot from watching shows like Britcoms and now some of the other shows like Doctor Who, and some of the other dramas.

But the internet and just meeting people from the UK has also been a huge influence. I long for the day to visit Britain, and specifically Scotland, the ancestral home of my family. (Aberdeen/Montrose area)

I also plan to take in some extreme sports like walking into a Rangers pub with a Dandy Dons kit on. That should provide entertainment, if not, my first experience with British healthcare.

lol Well thats makes you my main target for venting when we get knocked out lol

As for visiting, Scotland is a great place, been up there a few times, but to be honest it matters not what strip you wear in a rangers pub, just walk in and speak jibberish in a scottish accent

See Rooney could be out for the World Cup (again) after the mauling Man Utd got off Bayern Munich on Wednesday Alex Ferguson weren't too happy as usual
We won't win the thing with or without him. Too many stronger teams than England there. I predict Spain to have a great tournament.

Football players these days are panseys! one hangnail and they are crying to mommy, game has gone downhill for me since 1980sm support Everton if I'm asked a team, will support England in any championship games, but Fabio has to play you younger players relying on the old hasbeans and injured then we have no chance.

Actually we have no chance anyways as to be brutally honest the team these days is not thinking of playing for England but playing for the WAG and boozy nights they are missing while in SA.

In the group they are in I would say USA and England will go through with England 1st but once they get to the playoff games and if England hit the likes of Brazil, Spain, Germany then they screwed.
