Re: Do You Like Football?

Shouldn't that have been in the 'other' catagory then?

Re: Do You Like Football?

Well I had a problem with the 'like' word - ie the opposite of being 'dislike' so I kind of replaced the 'like' word with 'follow'... and answered no. May be I was wrong in doing that

Mooney Re: Do You Like Football?

Frankly no
I went to The Dell a couple of times and saw Southampton play Newcastle and Coventry but could not really see what all the fuss was about,I seem to recall nearly nodding off during the Coventry match at one point
Anyway as an inhabitant of Southampton(ish) working in Fareham (a suburb of Portsmouth ) I'm better off staying out of it!

NO! Can't stand the game, bores the pants off me even more than star wars does....only saving grace for star wars is that the films fans don't go around beating people up and fighting for their side.

Re: Do You Like Football?

Being a kiwi, we are fed rugby from a very young age. It's hard for me to follow a game that celebrates nil all draws.

I expect that this will get few people going........

Re: Do You Like Football?

No - I detest it. I just can't see the entertainment value of kicking a piece of plastic around a field.
Here in Ireland we also have Gaelic football and hurling which is run by the GAA (Gaelic athletic association) This association irks me as people who play for them get preferential treatment when it comes to jobs etc and young boys are 'indoctrinated' into the sport from a very young age.
Its the closest thing we have here to the Hitler youth

... I think that would be better with 'followed by some Hooligans'

Who said this original phrase Must admit - that is why I don't particurly like football Even if I urged on the side of caution not to offend

Ahhhh. "The beautiful game!" especially when played by Motherwell or Manchester City.

You can take it that I'm a "yes".

Re: Do You Like Football?

Fantastic results - i can't stand football, as someone said very boring watching those overpaid tarts skipping around a field. Now Rugby, that's a game Unfortunately a lot of my mates love the silly game, i had to endure watching Southend United in a play-off down the local on Saturday (for those of u interested Southend won 1-0 against Northampton) Now i thought top league footy was boring - OMG try watching Division 3 teams

Re: Do You Like Football?

I always struggle with people not liking football but I think that is because they always bring it down to something about twenty two men charging around a pitch kicking a ball filled with air into a goal.

So what????

Football is a massive pasttime for many people and I wonder how we would all feel if people brought our biggest passions (like Alfas) down to just a bit of metal and some bolts and wires.

Football is great and does no more to provoke violence than cars do road rage and so on and so forth. I love football me!

Up the 'Ammers!

Funnily enough, I get that quite a lot from my other half.

I just ignore her.....

.....just as you should ignore my personal opinion on football
