Thought I'd create this handy little thread for anyone wanting to talk about football, by which I mean real football, known across other parts of the world as "soccer" (which in itself is an abbreviation of the correct name - "association football" - but I digress...)

I've created it in here in the good old UK forum since it looks a little bare and because I've seen many folks from other countries be entirely bemused at the way everything stops over here when there's a game on.

So anyway, first things first, let's get a few things sorted!

1. Where are you from?
2. What team do you support?
3. How long have you supported them?
4. How are they doing so far this season?
5. How do you think they'll be doing by the end of the season?
6. Who do you think will win the league?
7. Will England qualify for Euro 2008?
8. Is McLaren useless or a genius in disguise?
9. Would you pick Heskey over Crouch?

Feel free to add any more questions if you like! I'll go first anyway :)

1. I'm from Doncaster
2. I support Doncaster Rovers, the pride of League One
3. I have done for nearly 30 years now, which is scary as I've just turned 32
4. We've had a crap start to the season, after being 2nd favourites for the title. 4 points from the first 5 games and a manager who doesn't look like he knows what he's doing.
5. I'm ever the optimist - we might make the play offs if we're lucky but I don't think we're ready for promotion just yet.
6. I always say people write off Arsenal at their peril but it'll probably be Man U.
7. Yes
8. I think he's an all-right manager making the best of a bad situation and some players who think they're far better than they really are
9. I wouldn't put Crouch in Doncaster Rovers' reserves.

1. Where are you from? Stoke-on-Trent
2. What team do you support? Port Vale
3. How long have you supported them? Since I understood football! (20ish years?)
4. How are they doing so far this season? Crap!
5. How do you think they'll be doing by the end of the season? Crap still probably, but hopefull still in League 1
6. Who do you think will win the league? Arsenal on current form
7. Will England qualify for Euro 2008? Looking very dodgy at the moment, wouldn't like to call it.
8. Is McLaren useless or a genius in disguise? Not the best, let's put it that way!
9. Would you pick Heskey over Crouch? No

Congratulations to Hull City AFC on another season in the Premier League!

:bravo:

Now let's buy some decent strikers and a better defence and not have a repeat of this years struggle please Phil Brown?

May 29th, 2009, 13:00
As a Boro fan, I'm gutted we've dropped a division :cry:

But the writing was on the wall before christmas when we just couldn't hold onto any leads that we had due to comical defensive errors or just being well and truly outplayed.

Hopefully being in the Championship will give the lads that stay a real kick up the arse and not take the Premiership for granted if and when they return!

Our new kit gets launched shortly (Adidas manufactured), so hopefully we'll have the best kit in the league :lol:

Look forward to seeing your lot at the Keepmoat this year! I remember we had David Wheater on loan for a season when he was about 18 and he was awesome back then. Don't think Boro will do too badly in the Championship, promotion would be a good bet within a couple of years. It's your fellow north-eastern cousins who I reckon will struggle to adjust the most!

Congrats for Saturday btw mate, good result by all accounts. From what I hear it was the same old story for us, lots of pretty possession with no shots on goal :lol: Admittedly I was hoping to not have to play against Tuncay as well!

Had a feeling your lot would come good in the Championship this year, looks like I might be right :grinning:

4. How are they doing so far this season?
Top of the league, having a laugh..lalala

5. How do you think they'll be doing by the end of the season?
Premier League Champions, losing finalists in the Champions League (again!)

Mmmm well apart from the obvious, ABC ..... Anyone But City.

1. Where are you from? Ireland

2. What team do you support? Chelsea

3. How long have you supported them? sincee i was 3/4

4. How are they doing so far this season? Better since AVB left

5. How do you think they'll be doing by the end of the season? I think we can nick 4th but if we were to win the fa cup alone I would be hapy after the dissaster AVB put us in.

6. Who do you think will win the league? God Knows....I said City first, then changed me mind to Uited and now I have no idea!

7. Will England qualify for Euro 2008? Im gonna change this to how i think theyll do in euro 2012, It will be close to get out of the group with rooney out v france and sweden but they might just scrap it and get battered by spain in the Quaters.

8. Is McLaren useless or a genius in disguise? Gonna change this to Hodsgen since we all know what happened to McLaren. I think Hodsgen is a smart choice. Dont judge him on Euro 2012 but on the qualies for the world cup and how 2014 goes as well.

9. Would you pick Heskey over Crouch? Crouch, best goals to games ratio of any englad striker apparently
