I think it's a good time to open a thread about the most popular sport in the world: We know all the teams who'll be playing in the world cup and their groups; we passed a boring group stage in the Champions' League and know how the round of 16 would look like; we passed a very interesting Super-Classico in Spain and there's the premier league christmas in front of us.

This is how it looks like:

The way things are going it seems promising for Chelsea, but without Essien and Anelka this is a wonderfull time for Man UTD and Arsenal to get something for Boxing Day!

I'll try to keep this thread alive, it would be nice if all the football fans around the forum will introduce themselves and the teams they support, I'm a Barca fan by the way.

Happy Christmas!

I've got a lot of respect and enjoy watching the sport. What turned me onto it was a very good Cameroon friend of mine who loved to watch Barcelona, because of Eto'o. I started watching with him, because we would watch the matches on my computer when in Germany--they were not on television. Soon I developed a liking for Chelsea, which remains the team I follow. I'll definitely be watching the Cup, with or without USA success.

I'm not the biggest football fan, though I enjoy it ocasionally when I watch it with a group of friends and a few beers. I think I might have trouble grasping the whole team thing, because when I watch football I do it because I want to see Zlatan Ibrahimovic win. :P
