    The build up, wall to wall TV coverage, the tabloids going ga-ga, the speculation over someone's foot healing in time, and the struggle to scrape through the group stage in second place. Riots dominating the news as our fans ambush the French in some town square or other.

    Then the knockout phase. The excitement and expectaion, the thrilling end to end game that we should have won but didn't because some foreign bastard disallowed a perfectly good goal and Rooney missed a sitter. The extra time stalemate, followed by the crushing disappointment as someone on £100,000 a week breaks a floodlight with his penalty.

    Pubs and town centres trashed throughout the land and scores of policemen hospitalised as the tabloid editors look round for the vegatable that most resembles the coach.

    I miss it already. :biggrin::sad::sad:

    I'm not a football fan, but I do enjoy watching major International football when England is taking part.
    I doubt I'll even know or care who wins the championship to be honest.

    Football is a game of two halves. If you lose you are as sick as a parrot. If you win you are over the moon.

    It is played by "boys". If the "boy" played excellently he "done good". These "boys" names all end in "sy". As in:

    Giggsy
    Scholesy
    Ferdinandy

    "Fans" of Football (or "Kick-a-Ball" as it known in the States) will "follow" their local team. Thus people from Cardiff will support Cardiff; those from Newcastle will support Newcastle and those from London, Peking and New Delhi will support Man United.

    Football tactics are deceptively simple. In Britain, a "hard man with short hair" in the middle will pass the ball to the whippy skillful player on the "wing" (or side). This player - or winger - will then run the length of the pitch to the opposition Goal area where he will either kick the ball off the pitch as he trips over; pass the ball to the opposition or pass it to a man in the 40th row, Seat A after attemting a "shot".

    If he does pass to his "striker" or "goal scorer" the ball will be "headed" to the man in the 51st row, seat C.

    ...etc

    Although not an avid football follower I would have watched some of the England matches if I came across them on the TV. Now I've have zero interest in this competition and almost for sure won't watch any of the games!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    football is a game played mainly by Americans, using, a majority of the time, their hands to pass and score a 'touchdown'. each player use's the utmost of protection, to play each game, think rugby with a pansy twist.
    The object of the game is to score more 'touchdowns' than your oppenent.

    every year all the teams take part in 'the world series' in which only american teams can take Enter.
