I'm English, but I live in the US. My dad's side of the family and my sister still live over there though, just north of Brighton.

And welcome to the Panthers family!!

Spent some time drinking pints in Rugby and Coventry. Became a fan of Liverpool while there.


Drinking pints is the perfect way to spend any time in England! When you say a fan of Liverpool I presume you mean the football (soccer) team? I live 15 miles from Liverpool and about 20 miles from Manchester but have been brough up a Manchester United fan so Liverpool i'm definitely not a fan of! My girlfriend is though from Liverpool which makes for many an excuse made when i'm giving the scousers abuse when they're on tv!

@jgraham

This post almost brought a tear to my eye...

Welcome aboard mate!!


Thank you!

I prefer the country myself.

We still don't lock our doors out here and the ignition keys are...well...in the ignition.


If I tried to leave my keys in the car and leave the door unlocked i'd pretty soon have no belongings or car! The great thing about where I live though is the countryside isn't more than 15 minutes away. I prefer the calmness of the country and if you ever come to England i'd definitely suggest visiting teh Lake District - some of the greatest countryside you'll ever see!

And the driver sits on the left side here.
And how many British cars are still started with keys?


The left hand side is all kind of wrong! ha - I hired a car when in Greece last year and had to drive left side, it threw me completely!

Rewatch the 03',08,10' seasons.

Should explain a few things around here.


I'm going to get around to going on a youtube tour of past seasons, I think it's about time I got to know some of the history of the team!

Welcome! I'm in the same boat as you kinda as I'm in the process of trying to learn English Premier League soccer :P I started playing FIFA a few years and became a Liverpool fan because I loved Torres and now they have Suarez who's a monster, but the rest of the team is crashing haha. I watch their games as much as I ca. And I'm pumped for the game vs Man U Sunday even though I'm sure Liverpool will get crushed! I'm still learning how it all works though so if you have any American football questions ask me and I'm sure I'll have a soccer question in return for you!

What's the difference between a nickle defense and a dime defense?

in short, Nickle has 5 defensive backs and Dime has 6. Well, I think. That's always how it's been on NCAA videogames

I love that gif on your sig! Steve Smith & Cam Newton both doing the business!

Yeah that sounds like a fair trade! I'm really nervous about Sundays game, despite us being clear at the top of the table Liverpool always raise their game for us and Suarez is on fire lately. Robin van Persie though is also killing it so it should be a good tussle! My problem is the majority of my friends & family are Liverpool fans and so if we do lose on Sunday i'm in for a lot of stick!

Yeah, because of all the rain the greens are gorgeous and lucious. The Emerald Isle earned her name, saw much of the same color on the big island too.

Suarez surely is on fire, cheating twatt, just ask those Mansfield fans from last Sunday's FA cup game.
ManU fan? You must love 'Fergie time' the cranky old git!.........NUFC fan, and yes I'm from the North East ;)
At least we have the Panthers in common, I live in Charlotte now, only 3 miles from the stadium, had PSL's for 6 years (season tickets) and I go to every home game. Heck even did an away game once to St Louis during the Jimmy Clausen era.....we all know how that worked out....

Well his hands are on fire! I don’t like Suarez at all as a person but as a player he is very very good. Fergie time is a myth! Ha NUFC must be a sore subject at the minute after the weekend and with Ba recently leaving!
I’d love to be able to see a Panthers game, how long have you been living in America for? How come you moved to that part of America?

Welcome.

You'll find some general craziness on this board plus some useful information at least once a year.

If you're keen to learn about the pro game, then I recommend Pat Kirwan's book. You'll discover some interesting things...like the difference between 12 and 22 formation. His radio show on Sirius is good--if you can subscribe from the UK.

Yet another European Panthers fan here. I'm from Finland and I've been a fan since the Panthers played in the Super Bowl (which was the first American football game I've watched). I've even been to four Panthers games (2010 against SF, 2011 Bears and 2012 Saints and Giants at home) and watched almost all the Panthers games for the last five or so years (NFL Game Pass is very good btw.)

In ten years I've learned to understand the game quite well but I still not completely sure what causes the illegal formation penalties.. =)
