True story: I always have two seasons/franchises/manager modes, in FIFA and I am Villa in one and Leicester in the other.

M.O.N. managed you guys to the cup a few times if I'm not mistaken.

I got sacked by Leicester on Football Manager. I'm a Bray legend though. http://twitpic.com/h5q0c

To try and make it bigger than it is-is just ignorant.

I guess thats why we see soccer highlights "all day" on espn.


There are 52 live matches on TV this weekend.

Dang, soccer doesn't get any coverage.

Cesc is the best young player in the world. That goal he had at the end of the half was an instant classic. They're making a mockery of Tottenham. I just hope we can fend Real Madrid off for another couple of years from taking him...

Spurs aren't very good IMO. Well they are but, not top 4 material. You ain't going nowhere if you keep getting destroyed by the Big 4.

I just saw 3 in the Top 10 plays on SportsCenter. So buy your own metrics, you're wrong.

Maybe it was a slow day in sports? Hell, they've had things in the top 10 plays that barely qualified as sport.

My problem with baseball is there is 200 f**king games!

What about soccer though? You have your league games, then you have a couple different cups...then you have the champions league and if you bounce out of that, you go into the uefa cup (don't think they do that anymore). There are a ton of soccer games. Not 200 f**cking games but then again, they're very different sports and the pace of the game dictates the amount of games played.

And baseball isn't? You didn't make up a baseball field in the neighborhood?

Make up a field? We played in the freakin' street. Ok, we also had an empty lot but we spent just as much time playing in the street (basically stickball or bounceball).

one big reason why soccer is not as accepted in the USA is that there are many many nations in the world that are far superior at the game.

Then we should be dropping out of baseball very soon as the game is dominated by foreign players and we've won jack squat in the WBC. In 5 years of Olympic baseball, we won once. We suck at soccer because no one cares about it...and the small percentage that do, can't generate a team of players that can compete on an international level.
