The South American football scene is even more rabid.!! Referees families being threatened is nothing unusual, bribing is common place.!
    Actually interest in America has been growing a bit in the last decade to be honest with you. It's nowhere at the fevered pitch it is in Europe or South America but with us getting football widely spread with MLS and some the bigger European games it's easier to become a fan. There is harldy a person I know now a days early 30's to teen that doesn't play FIFA on playstation or xbox. (that's actually what got me into football from my friends playing it) I dont' have me a team just yet, but I like playing real Madrid in the game lol I've always wanted to go to England and watch one of the bigger games to see what it feels like! I'm still a rookie with leagues, and Cups and such but still getting into it! Soccer has to be some type of American word because with my friends from around the world I play online with everytime I say soccer they yell at me "It's not called soccer! It's football!" lol

    Haha yeah, when he first moved over, he made the mistake of wearing his jersey in public after a Chelsea win, lets just say he wont be doing that again ...

    No friendly rivalry there.

New Zealand was the only undefeated Nation at the World Cup lol

    Me too texas, the Man City , Man Utd rivalry is fierce. I hope Chelsea get the win obviously.? Im hoping Chelsea can pull the upset. MU are in good form, but were not at there best in the game in Benfica.? That kind of thing can just as easy carryover to the next game, just like momentum does, when playing well.
    The big key here is that Old Trafford crowd, Uniteds home stadium is an absolute fortress>!! 77'000 nutters every game, even if their playing a 3rd division team in a FA Cup game.

    0-0 Chelsea at Barcelona...good or bad?
    by txramsfan
    Not sure. Drogba had a great chance in the 1st half but just missed. Thought Barcelona may have outplayed Chelsea but at least it's even going to Stamford Bridge. If it wasn't for Cech it would be tough for Chelsea.

    Chelsea v Barca in a few minutes
    by txramsfan
    Getting ready to sit down on the sofa and watch this fixture. Big game for Chelsea as Barca is nicked up. However, I don't know about you blokes across the pond but that Heinekin Champions commercial is rather annoying.

    Drogba is chomping at the bit to eradicate the Moscow disaster from last year.

    World Cup time
    by 01d 0rd3r
    As everyone knows it is world cup time, which mean that one of the biggest sporting events in the world will be going on for the next month. So I am interested, if you watch the World Cup what country to you want to win. I have been an Italian fan since I was little, and look forward to a repeat by the Azzuri. What team is everyone else watching.

    Great Expectations of U.S. Soccer
    by txramsfan
    Great expectations of U.S. soccer
    Sean Wheelock / Fox Soccer Channel


    For those of us who began avidly following the United States before 1990, Wednesday's 2-1 victory away to Trinidad & Tobago seems like something of a dream.

    It wasn't just that the U.S. won their opening match in the final round of CONCACAF World Cup qualification, it's that they did it with such poise, confidence, and relative ease, in a pretty difficult place to gain a result.

    Now, I'm not kidding myself into thinking that beating Trinidad & Tobago in Port of Spain is like defeating France in Paris or Brazil in Sao Paulo, but a win away from home in CONCACAF is a quality win. And until relatively recently, they didn't happen all that often for the U.S.

    Last week, I interviewed Bob Gansler about America's victory vs. Trinidad & Tobago, which resulted in qualification for the 1990 World Cup. The U.S. of course was not supposed to win that match, or even come close to giving the Soca Boyz an actual challenge.

    At the time it ranked as this country's biggest win in international soccer since the 1-0 defeat of England at the 1950 World Cup. Now, not even a generation later, I am going to treat a 2-1 victory in Port of Spain as, dare I write this, expected. Has American soccer really come that far?

    I'm actually bracing myself for the columns and comments of the soccer media who will proclaim that the U.S. wasn't dominant enough in that match; that the scoreline should have been more decisive. Perhaps they should be reminded of the years 1951 through 1988 when wins, home or away, were neither plentiful nor expected.

    As the United States closes in on a fifth consecutive World Cup appearance, it's important to consider a time not that long ago, when even one trip to soccer's biggest event would have been regarded as a miracle. In fact, the berth in Italia 1990 was considered just that. Now a place in Germany 2006 is not only expected, it's demanded.

    As I watched the match develop from Port of Spain, I could scarcely believe how comfortable and dominant the U.S. squad looked. I had to continually remind myself that Trinidad & Tobago is a very solid squad, with a Premiership goalkeeper, Shaka Hislop of Portsmouth; a defender who starts for Rangers, Marvin Andrews; and two of the best strikers to come out of CONCACAF in the past 20 years, Dwight Yorke and Stern John.

    I also had to remind myself that Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain is a very difficult place for an away side to play, as they have to contend with passionate supporters, sweltering temperatures and a pitch, used predominately for cricket, that is both massive, and well, not exactly of the highest standard. Yet, here was the U.S., dominating the match, and looking very much the favorites.

    The United States is now into its fourth year unbeaten...

    What is the best game you have ever seen.
    by 01d 0rd3r
    Just though i would like to ask. Regardless of sport, what is the best sports game you have ever watched.

    Mine would have to be during the 2006 world cup semi finals. Watching the Italian national team just be in a deadlock with Germany the whole game then just unleash two scores on them in stoppage time, not to mention one from my all time favorite player Del Piero. Was the most exciting time I have ever spent watching a sports game. Not to mention that Italy won the world cup that year
