Football is Association football (soccer), not American football…

I might as well post in this thread, although I’m not too well up on anything other than the English competitions, the Champion’s League, and the UEFA Cup.
Oh yeah, the form:
My (Kong) Name Is: Alvin
I’m From: England
Favourite Football Team(s): Huddersfield Town (English League 1 side (the third tier of English professional football), finished 9th this season), Arsenal (my favourite Premiership team, play awesome football), Vandenberg FC (my six-a-side team :P).
Favourite Championships: English Premiership and Champion’s League; they’re the most accessible to me.

I think Manchester United will win the Champion’s League, mainly because they have a really good defence, as well as an attacking threat, whereas Barcelona, whilst having an awesome attack, seem to lack something in defence, especially now with both first choice full backs suspended for the final.
If anyone saw the Manchester United – Arsenal semifinal, do you think Fletcher was unlucky to be sent off? I personally don’t, but I know many pundits and ‘experts’ disagree…

Would be nice for this thread to be quite active, ’tis often quite difficult to talk about sport of any kind on here.

Barcelona have a good defense. Puyol, Piqué, Márquez, Abidal (Not going to play), and many others which are great. What players of Barcelona aren’t going to play?

Let’s hope it is. I made this thread because I saw many posts in a thread I made where it talked about Chelsea vs. Barça, yesterday’s match.

About yesterday’s match, was it really unfair? I saw news where it said that the Norwish referee refereed very bad. I have been told that he missed 3 penalties, amazing. Anyway, @ Chelsea fans: Don’t get angry at Barça for the bad refereeing, get angry at the referee.

One-thousandth post.

@ penguinwasher: So, you don’t watch the IFA Premiership, or FAI League of Ireland, (Wikipedia shows 2 results, don’t know which it is) why don’t you watch it?

Well how many good players have you heard come from the Irish League?

Robby Keane. No-one else… :P Last time I heard of him was in 2006 or 2005, a long time… Oh, of course, Duff, he’s good, I haven’t heard of him in a while neither…

Everyone starts at their homecountry, they must’ve too. Maybe in a small team and suddenly bought by a large team from a non-Irish country.

Exactly! :
“Here we are in the Baseball World Cup. We’re in the final between Japan and the USA.”

Lol. Same happens in cricket and rugby, sadly, but in football there are over 10 or 12 countries that have won the World Cup. And there are always great teams, so many good teams that most can’t clasifficate… Football is great, with awsome players from around the world, from Brazil, to England, from Portugal to Ivory Coast, etc.

I wouldn’t say that Americans are idiots. No one said that. But if someone doesn’t want to post frequently in this thread and just posts to spam and criticize the most played, and therefore the best sport in the world, then it would be better if they just don’t come.

Futbol? I mean, lol, wtf?! Soccer? No. I did put Football = Soccer below the first post for no confusions, it’s clear enough. And if you think this is American football, you’ll see that you don’t know what Barça, La Liga, Premiership League, ChampionsLeague, etc. are.
