Soccer info

Just curious to see if there are any soccer fans out here. I support Manchester United.

I supported Tottenham Hotspur, as a boy I frequently went to White Hart Lane to watch them play. Last match I saw was when Tottenham beat Aston Villa 6-2. Brilliant match

I try to be the man my dog thinks I am.

Hey, I am a fanatical believer in the beautiful game. Tottenham Hotspur since the 1940s. I was at White Hart Lane as a kid, right behing Ted Ditchburn, Spurs brilliant goalkeeper. We now have a brilliant Premier league here, we are fortunate to see such football. Sometime 3 generations of my family have sat together at the Lane. But I had to make a behind enemy lines visit to Arsenal recently, (horror) to watch one of my grandsons playing for one of their teams! How could I not be there.

Can we hear from more soccer fans; I know Redneck is certainly on board, Aston Villa, I believe; and he too has been to White Hart Lane I understand.

BritinAfrica - welcome to the team! You were always my favourite!

ObjSRgtLw - we meet again. Do you have Martin Jol as manager? Having a good season, is he not? A good man, Spurs fans were right behind him and very sorry to see him go.

English by the grace of God.

Yes jol is head trainer and we are having a good league here, had a very good start too and managed to hold 1st place for a while- for the break we are 4th, i think we have it in us to get 1st place but TSG hoffenheim (new to 1st League!) is ruling at the moment. wow how i'd like to see little Hoffenheim rule against Man U or Chelsea some day at the uefa . This town has 3k inhabitants...

Jol has been sadly missed. He's a straight-talker and the Spurs crowds loved him - sang to keep him at Tottenham, and have been cheering his success in Germany - try to catch the reception if he ever returns to Spurs in combat! All his reign lacked was a little bit of luck; with that he would have been close to top of the heap.

Of yalls respective countries, which team has the rudest fans? For me, I would have to go with Chelsea and Liverpool.

Unfortunately I can't keep up with the sport as much as I'd like to, the games are VERY seldom broadcast in the US except for the pay-per-view channels, and I'm broke... But I do keep up with international soccer... I'm a supporter of the US (unfortunately), Brazil, Germany, and England. I love em all. More of a player than a watcher... I watch American football, I PLAY football.

US Soccer would have to be DC United
International would have to be Manchester United and Football NSW
