I defended Everton against fans of other teams for too long to jump ship now.

Haven't followed much soccer lately though.

I've been to a few EPL and Div 1 games. I really enjoyed Craven Cottage; "tight" little ground as someone from the UK described it. Singing section was on all night. It was a few years ago, not too long after Fayed bought in. Fanatastic atmosphere (and if there were any hoolies around I didn't see them).

That is the same song (basically) as the Saskatchewan Roughriders fight song (from the CFL BTW)....

So cheer us on through the sun and rain
Saskatchewan Roughriders, that's our name.


Too funny!

Too much soccer talk. You think Murray will win the Aussie Open? He's been a beast so far and hasn't lost a set. And his gf is a babe

Welcome to the board.

Manchester is a great city. Been a while since I've been there, summer of 2000, but I had a blast.

I'm a big Dortmund fan. My first live game was a game in Munich 1996 when they won the league in this game. Epic moment for a 8 year old. Still remember this.
BVB > CFC > Augsburg (hometown team)

those 3 are the teams I follow closely.

I'll say Hello too!
I'm from Nottingham and I've been following the Blackhawks, and most Chicago sports teams since 2000. The ex husband is from Chicago so I kinda inherited the love of all things Chicago!

Apparently I'm somewhat of an anomaly, I can't stand football (soccer) !!!

Loving the start we've had to this season, hopefully we can keep it rolling.

Football in England is somewhat depressing now for me. I hate the way we play the game. Hence why I like the Bundesliga (Germany), Serie A (Italy) and La Liga (Spain).


Tennis. Don't like and Andy Murray is the biggest ****** going, so much arrogance for so much average. (I know I will feel pain for this but had to be said) lol.

Ha a lot of people don't like Murray which is understandable. Tennis players are pretty arrogant in general. He does have a US Open title and a gold medal though.
