I always get funny looks when I say that I cant stand how S. Americans and the Italians play (Portugal and Spain pull the same thing, but to a slightly lesser extent).

I know Argentina and Brazil play the "beautiful game" but it's just painful to watch. I'll be paying very close attention to the Refs nationality in this World Cup. If I see Brazilian, Italian or Argentinian listed, I'll know that game is going to be pretty hard to watch.

I grew up watching English, Scottish (GO 'GERS!), and German leagues so I prefer the power high energy style they play.
