    Haven't really followed them, but they're probably staying up. It's been a long time since the Brian Clough European Cup-winning glory days.

    Salah!

    Saw somebody say once that Darwin Nunez was born offsides…

    I support players more than I support clubs.

    Salah and Son Heung-Min are two of my favorites.

    Always hated soccer growing up but got into a fantasy league where it runs all year long where we take teams instead of individual players and have the Champions League as one of the sports every year, along with some rotating ones like Euro and World Cup. I still don't like watching soccer, but it's at least got me to follow the sport a little more and know some of the bigger teams. Had Liverpool the year they won the CL title, so that along with my dads (and mine) love of the Beatles, I always gravitate towards them but wouldn't call myself a 'fan' by any stretch.

    I still claim that if Aliens invaded earth and challenged us to sport, it would be a soccer match.

    And we wouldn’t have quidditch if it weren’t for soccer (and cricket?)…whatever that means

    Always cracked me up when somebody says they can’t watch soccer because they never score. but isn’t a 21–14 NFL game actually just 3-2?

    Question is, who do you guys cheer for during World Cup/Olympics?

    USA first and then somebody else? Or somebody else?

    C'mon Step out of your comfort zone so we can all tell you how boring soccer is and how that thread should be in OT.
