well we had a good converstation going about football/soccer(for the states guys) so I felt like starting a thread just about the sport in general since the other one was focused mainly on Chelsea and I wanted a more general thread to talk about your ideas favorite teams and such. Have to say my favorite team is Barcelona but they have too much talent to not win. They just don't seem like they give their all most of the time and they just are content with getting their paychecks and trying half-a**ed. ANother note is the absolutely over-rated David Beckham. Yes he has a good shot but he really is not nearly as good as some of the top players in the world and if he never married Posh Spice he would have never been so famous. Also Real Madrid got him for the money he generates not the games he will win for them. And since his arrival Real Madrid hasn't been as big in the news because he drowns out all of their accomplishments with his paparazzi publicity!... haha now it's your turn!
