Default The All-Purpose Football (Soccer) Thread

It's The Beautiful Game, and the most popular sport in the world.

Clubs, nations, goals, players, and even Football Manager. Let's talk about football.

Yohan Cabaye, my future husband (in my dreams)

I honestly want to support Newcastle because of him, but their unending tendency to shit all over themselves keeps me from doing so.

How did I not see this thread before now? <3

I have football training tonight for my u13s team. I only joined them a few weeks ago but I don't really like them, most of the players are really selfish and ball greedy. Like in a match a couple of weeks ago one of the midfielders picked the ball up from halfway, ran with it, he had me and the other striker ahead of him and a winger out wide in space ready to make the run, but he kept running and took a shot from about 20 yards out which wasn't even close to being on target. Why?! In the first match I played for them they wouldn't even give me the ball, and the one time they did I scored from it. They all prefer shooting from stupid places or trying to take on 3 or 4 defenders instead of looking for passes and trying to bring other people into play.

Sorry that ended up as a bit of a rant, I needed to get it off my chest

But yeah, i'm thinking of looking for another u13s team, but I might have to wait until the end of the season :c

Ugh, I hate hearing that. The problem with a lot of teams is that everyone thinks they're an all-star. That's no the way I play at all. I could be taking a lot more shots on goal, but I don't. No shame in assists.

I hope you find something more compatible to your style.

Well, he's my second-cousin (my dad's cousin). I've been to his house when I was like 7 or something. Apparently he had a massive TV. c:

The guys on my school team are perfect because i've played with them for ages and we know how eachother plays, that's why i'm doing so well for my school.

I'm happy with my school team but I want to play for a league team as well, I think i'll look for a new league team at the end of the season.

I'd love to play for a club team myself. We just don't have the money, and my mom being a single parent...lots of opportunities are limited.

You have to pay to play for a team? Or do you mean the money for equipment and stuff?

Yes, to play for a traveling club team (not a city league) you need money

That's awesome! I scored twice the other night (for the first time in high school) in our playoff game. I just got big news in relation to that. So excited right now.

So I caught the replay of the US Men's WC qualifier against Costa Rica. Crazy game with all the snow. Didn't know they could play in that blizzard. I can see where it would be protested...but I don't see where anything could be done about it. The officials there decided it was alright enough to continue.

I'm glad we won, though. We need points.

Lords of Football looks interesting. A Sims/Football strategy game.

Hoping to try a demo of this in the next few days. It will never be as deep as Football Manager, but it's certainly a different twist on it.

I still haven't tried that game, Aaron. It's gotten terrible reviews from what I have read so I haven't bothered to make time for it yet.

Even getting close to 30 is amazing. I had 7 myself this year for my school team and I considered it a success. I'm not a big goal scorer - but my coach wants me taking a lot of set pieces now. I have a feeling I will score more next season. I also think she's trying to help me get into college
