You can call it football, soccer, voetbal, fußball, futebol, fútbol, sakkā, calcio, футбол, ποδόσφαιρο, כדורגל, bola sepak, sepak bola, 축구, 足球 -- and you'll end up with the same game. One ball, two teams, 2x45 minutes, two sides of the field, the referee, the game, and the victory.
This is where you can talk about the teams, the players, the managers, the owners, the fans, the leagues, the tournaments -- the game!
Remember: No Flaming is allowed.
Fair Play, Kick Racism Out of Football and may the best team wins!

Fabiano for United? That's interesting.
Berbatov was useless this season. He'll go to Munich this summer and I think Hargreaves should retire because I can't see him coming back from such a nasty injury. He hasn't played for more then a year. *facepalm*
I'm with you Saintz. Argentina have no midfield. XD They need Zanetti & Cambiasso. Ballack is out of the WC.
For those of you who are blind don't know - we now have an official World Cup 2010 Thread! Thanks to Des-chan. I hope you guys participate in the discussions and whatnot, once the WC starts that is.
Foster's gone to Birmingham lol and Fergie's promoted Ben Amos into the first team; his officially now our third goalkeeper. I wonder whether he'll get any games next season? XD Maybe, in the Carling Cup?
Grant resigned...that was coming.
So what do you guys make of Newcastle coming back up and how will they fair in the Premiership next season? XD
I can't wait for the Champions League Final this coming saturday.

Re: The Football/Soccer Thread - Part 1
Yeah the rumours started going around as soon as he started complaining about Italian football, but he himself confirmed that his agent had spoken with Real but he needed to speak to them himself on Monday and see where to go from there, but it's as good as a done deal.
I missed the match too, I was at work; the 1st Champo League final I've missed in 6 years. I knew Inter would win, they did to Bayern the same thing they did to Barcelona at the Nou Camp, the defense was spot on.
