How to start watching soccer/football?

I've always enjoyed the sport, just never got around to actually watching it apart from the World Cup. I'd like to change that, and I know UG has plenty of football aficionados.

So... what do? I don't have a clue where to begin.

If it means anything, I'm in Canada.

Have a look in the Club Football Thread. Get past the arguments, there's some good discussion about it, and plenty of people who'd be happy to answer any questions about it.

Doh ho I'm sure. You must not have heard of my semi-legendary Valencia squad.

Just find a little could and push him on the ground. Then you just have to watch him laying down and crying for half an hour. That is essentially watching soccer in a nutshell.

Just watch hockey, American football, jai alai, curling, or korfball instead.

One that's claret. But my second point is a serious one. I learned all about European football leagues through FM, and once you know about the players, following it becomes a piece of cake.

You've obviously never heard of my... ...um...Championship relegation-battling legend of a squad.

Here's my story. I went to Italy with my school. We were watching a Serie A game on TV. We were betting on who would win. We really got into it. We returned to America and I continued watching football. My dad's family is from Catania, so naturally, I'm a fan of their team (hence the sig). My friend's family is from Palermo. He watches it too. Palermo and Catania are rival teams. Catania is in 7th. Palermo is in 19th. I call him up and laugh at him every time Palermo gets spanked. I enjoy it. The End

step a)

fall down

step b)

grab ankle and/or head. no arms.

step c)

roll back and forth.

helpful tips: it's like stop drop and roll, but instead of being on fire you're just really gay and you touch yourself more

it might also help to watch a premier league game at a local pub. bit crazy, but give it a shot.

I'll definitely check it out then. Kind of similar to how I learned about the NHL, I just played NHL 98 constantly on the N64 and learned the players.

As with most sports, play the video games. FIFA in this case.

This is what I've been doing, along with playing FIFA. Helped me learn a lot, football manager is definitely a lot more fun if you're into simulations/management games.
