C'mon the hoops Scottish league champions 2005/06


Been a celtic fan all my life although when I was younger I used to go and see Greenock Morton with my brother because they were closer to home. Other teams I like are West Ham(england) and Barcelona(spain), as for the world cup I don't know who I'll be supporting but it won't be England as the commentators already have England winning the world cup and they really annoy me
Still not sure about Strachan though.... I'll withhold judgment on him till I see how we perform in Europe nest season

Try living in England its ten times worse

He managed us to the league title by a country mile after a terrible start to the season the first game in charge of a team should not be a european fixture wasn't too sure of his signings but they have all performed well all he needs is the money to strengthen the squad and I hope Nakamura doesn't leave

Re: Football (Soccer to those across the pond)

I've never managed to sustain a decent interest in Scottish football, due to the lack of proper competition, as well as the lack of coverage in England.

Re: Football (Soccer to those across the pond)

Leeds are on there way back up next season, YAY

I follow the English leagues on and off (hard to see many games now Im back in Oz) but love the internationals, mainly supporting Ireland and Australia.

On the AFL front I do try to support the Dockers, but it's just soo hard sometimes

Re: Football (Soccer to those across the pond)

Check my location!

Fifty years of supporting the perennial underdog, then what do the go and do? Win the League Cup, qualify for Europe, reach the semi finals of the UEFA Cup AND the semi finals of the F.A. cup. Looks like they'll have to build a trophy cabinet at last.

These giddy heights are giving me a head-ache. (Where are my aspirins?)

For those Ausies, Boro's second goalkeeper, Brad Jones is also an Oz.

Re: Football (Soccer to those across the pond)

My team is the mighty liverpool. i've never been to see a game as i live in the midlands but i try to watch them on tv whenever i can.

I gotta say though that my favourite sport is american football. I support the Denver Broncos but i rarely get to see them play as i dont have sky and its on at stupid o'clock in the morning so i rarely stay up to watch it on channel 5.

Is that where you're from then?

Re: Football (Soccer to those across the pond)

Charlton Athletic. I've supported the Addicks since we were absolutely skint; kicked out of the Valley because we couldn't afford the rent and having to ground share at West Ham. I go to most home games though and have done since Port Vale in 1993.

I'm also a Glasgow Rangers fan (the only one from a family of Celtic supporters).

Re: Football (Soccer to those across the pond)

Similar to Nixie, really - The Reds & The Hoops
I remember being quite torn during the "Battle of Britain" game in UEFA a few seasons ago when they both met in the semis.

Also enjoy watching American Football (although it's a bit like Sumo with more clothing and a rugby ball at times...) and have the misfortune to cheer on the 49ners on the rare occasion they win a game.

Oh, and along with Man Utd, I dislike Leeds intensely. When they were in the Premier League, they had one of the dirtest teams I've seen in many a year.

I also have a soft spot for Newcastle as I live here and you'll never meet a more dedicated set of fans (especially considering they've won nothing in 50 years).

Looking forward to the World Cup soon - makes a change not to have to stay up till 4am to watch a game (it's the Aussies turn to do that this time )

Re: Football (Soccer to those across the pond)

It's a game played by steroid-chomping fatties who need to take a break every 30 seconds before they have a heart attack - what's not to like?
You've got to love a sport where the idea of a cool nickname is to be called "The Fridge" or "The Bus"

But then again, I have a weakness for daft sports - loved Kabadi (sp?) on channel 4 and english wrestling during the 80s (Big Daddy vs Kendo Nagasaki vs Giant Haystacks! Easy, Easy, Easy!)
