Wow, another guy using the fact that he lives in the country where the Premiership as backing for his opinion. Very-well. Lets see. Been playing '96. Been watching since '93-'94. Played for a local club in the valley and for my high school. Played in the Rose Bowl, The Azteca, El Cuzcatlan, and a tournament in Sweeden as a youth. Continue playing pick-up games as I'm older and wiser. Play for a small team created at my job. I guess that doesn't matter because you've watched over 200 top-flight games. For me, well...just Manchester United when they came to the states, Sevilla when I was younger with my father at the Pizjuan. I mean...fuck. My bad dude. I apologize for not being so fortunate as you are. Instead of bragging how you go watch all these games, how about putting some reasoning into your opinions.
damn man, that is impressive. i mean, you called me a moron, when i've lived and breathed football for like, 13 or 14 years?
you cannot seriously say that i am a moron, especially when it comes to football. ive probably watched in total around 600 games, ranging over world cups, fa cups, premierships, la ligas, etc, whether it be on tv or live. i know the game as well as anyone not involved in the professional game, if i'm honest. i've read books about total football, johan cruyff and his idealogies about football, the passion of spanish football, and all types of things. i want to bcome a manager of a topflight club and whilst most go from professional player into a managr, some don't. i still have contact with one of the coaches at west ham united; fyi, when i was 7 i was scouted and played as a striker for their youth team, after scoring just under 60 goals in a single season for my local team. i left there because i lived too far from their training ground, the coaches wanted me to saty but i had to drive up there 4 times a week.
i know i'm lucky to see that many games, and i'm sure if the US had a decent league then you would have too, because whilst im not rich, i love football that much that i would pester and beg my dad to go to games just because being surrounded by 35000 other eastenders singing i'm forever blowing bubbles at upton park on a cold tuesday night in october was and is still my favourite thing to do. i'm sure that had the standard been worth it, you wouldve gone to just as many.
