I am a soccer fan, albeit not a huge one. I do follow the Premier League and support Chelsea. Who do you support?

Like barbadosslim93, I am a soccer fan but not a huge one. The past couple of days, I have been mesmerized by what's happening with FIFA and the indictments of so many top officials. I wonder how soccer fans feel about that.

Hey dakraam1, I've played soccer for over 30 years now, and I'm still living the dream in my local over 35s team where we are all getting older and slower but still think we are really good! lol

In Australia here Sydney FC is my team and in Europe I follow Liverpool. I've been to the world cup in 2006 where I saw all 4 Australian games, I've watched Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Hertha Berlin play in their home stadiums, been to a World Club Cup final in Tokyo/Osaka, watched the Olympic games gold medal final here in Sydney in 2000, and went to Wembley many years ago to see an England game. The best atmosphere and most exciting match however was here in Australia in the world cup play-off match against Uruguay in 2005. I don't think I will ever see a more exciting match.

It is great to see Blatter gone, but I think that is just the beginning. FIFA is so corrupt it would probably be better to get rid of the whole organisation and start with something new.

After Blatter said that he would not resign, he resigned a couple of days later. Anyone knows what happened between these few days that caused him to change his mind? NY Times thinks that the resignation is as a result of his attorneys' advice.

Hello, Man United fan here Devil I'm fully agree with you words for Man City and Chelsea, there is just too much money in this game nowadays but it is what it is.

I'd guess that Blatter resigned on advice of someone else. He would not have done so himself. He either knew all about the corruption and participated, in which case he should resign, or he didn't know anything, in which case he was incompetent and should resign. Yet he still stood up there and ran the election like the greedy crook that he is. Who knows the real reason, the main thing is that he and many of his cronies are gone now and not before time. I'm sure there will be more as it seems to me that FIFA is set up as a corrupt cartel with everyone near the top on the take.

My favorite soccer club is Steaua Bucharest. It s the best team in Romania right now, with a great history(In 1986 Steaua won Champions League against Barcelona in final).
In Premier League I am a Manchester United supporter.

Nice alin04, I remember watching Marius Lacatus score in the world cup Italia 90 (on TV) when I was a young lad. The commentators were going crazy over him. Terrible haircut, great player!

I don't know if anyone else here has been watching but I have been enjoying the women's world cup. The standard of play has improved heaps since the last one. And it helps that Australia is doing well, knocking out Brazil the other day.

Hey all, can you please address soccer as Football.
I am a huge football fan and Germany is my all time favorite.
Real Madrid is the most successful club and i support them.

Hahah that old argument... I know its football, and you know its football, as does all of Europe. But say "football" to an American and they think you're talking about NFL, or to an Australian and it could be any one of 4 different games. At least everyone knows exactly what you're referring to when you say soccer and that is the most important thing.

Have you ever been to see Real Madrid play? I did once 10 or so years ago and was lucky enough to see Zidane, Raul, Figo, Roberto Carlos, Ronaldo (the original), Beckham etc demolish another team 6-1. It think it was Albacete.

First of all he's not in United long time ago, so you should support Real Madrid probably Wink
I'm not too old Thinking hopefully, but the young generation didn't quite know what's the English game all about, it's about pride, eford and heart in the game. Too rare things to see nowadays in the big English clubs.

Somehow until now I've missed to read that post Ed, I was wondering how the hell Australian is so interested in football/soccer Wink and I know now, is Del Piero played for FC Sydney in his last seasons by the way, or I'm mistaken? Obviously you've been at many stadiums in Europe, wish I would have same luck too. Remember the days when Australia have to play with South American teams for place on the World Cup which wasn't fair at all, Australia have had really great players over the years but missed some World Cups because of these playoffs.

Actually more people play the game here than any other sport, and I have been playing since I was 6 years old. But for one reason or another it has never been particularly strong as a professional sport. There are three other games here people call "football" - Australian Rules football, rugby union, and rugby league. So there is a lot of competition, so much so that the professional league here now plays in our summer time instead of winter. But it is better that way because then our league is in synch with the leagues in Europe and Asia.

Over the past 10 years the A-League here has gotten stronger each year. Last night Sydney beat Guangzhou Evergrande in the Asian Champions League 2-1. Guangzhou are the ones who signed Jackson Martinez from Atletico Madrid for $65 million, and have Scolari as their coach. The salary cap for the entire Sydney squad is $2.6m for a season so that gives you an idea of the difference in resources between these two teams. So it was a great result for Sydney.

The Australian national team these days is ok. It is nowhere near as strong as it was when they played in Germany in the world cup with Hiddink as coach. That team had top players like Kewell, Viduka, Neill, Emerton, Cahill and Schwarzer. Now there are only a couple playing in the Premier League and other top European Leagues. More and more are going to play in Asian leagues like Japan, China and Korea, because of the three foreigners rule (Asian federation players don't count as a foreigner, so Australians are more in demand there).

Yeah I remember all those players mate,Kewell and Viduka in particular were just great players.
Also like Aussie rules, I think it's a very dynamic sport, know that cricket is also very popular in Australia and one of my favourite sports really, just recently I've watched test series against New Zealand.
Quite often I bet on Australian football games so I have some idea about the local football leagues.

I never bet on the A-League! It is very unpredictable. The salary cap makes the teams very even and any team can beat any other on their day. A few years ago the season ended with 4 teams on top with the same points.

For example, as I said Sydney just beat Guangzhou, the Asian champions. But Sydney are in 6th place and struggling in the league. But then again they have played Western Sydney (who are in first place) 3 times this season and have won 2 and drawn 1. It makes for a good competition to watch but I would not bet on it!

Yeah I understand and agree with all that you saying Ed, but when you look for a bigger odds it's sometimes even better for you to have an equal opponents but one of them is in the role of underdogs. From that point of view I like Australian matches sometimes I bet on lower leagues as well. Many of these games are right for bet on over, as they are usually high scoring.

Did anyone see the photos of Hristo Stoichkov crouching over the dead animals he shot? I lost all respect for him.

Fingers crossed that Barcelona smashes Real Madrid again!

Hey mapika, who are some of Romania's better players these days? Is there a new Gheorghe Hagi coming through the ranks?

Nicolae Stanciu is our new Hagi! Now his playing for Steaua, he just made his debut at the national team last month scoring a great goal. You will see him at the Euro 2016 Smile

About Stoichkov, unfortunately i have the same opinion. Great player, but not a great man

Never liked him as a person too much although a fine player he was. But I guess you know he's an ex Barca player Ed.
