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.
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.
