They are really football matches, although I'm as likely to say "I'm going to the game" as "I'm going to the match".

American football sucks ass.

Its too stop - start for me. The skill in football ("soccer") is second to none.

Do you get alot of European games (matches) in the US??

Barca are a great side to watch. They probably have the best player in the world today in Messi.
What a legend.

Great goal. Good to see Adebayor back to his best.
We missed Cesc aswell over the last few months. Another legend! :notworthy:
