I like football. I'm a fan of Barcelona. I think themost important match of the world is Barça-Real Madrid. This is the match which mostly I want to watch. Nowadays a lot of team passing hard days because of COVID-19. Teams stayed in a hard sitiuation by to pay players' salaries of million dollars. Also I think the worst side of football is leaving of Messi from Barcelona.

I am crazy about watching football match especially arsenal. I've been supporting arsenal team for ages. But now, it is so hurtful to watch arsenal match. The team has been facing lots of problems. I hope they can built the better team one day. I really miss the old days in the Highbury Stadium.

I used to be a fan of Galatasaray in Turkey but now I am not. Playing and watching football is entertaining. I've realized that footballers earn too much money by just running after a ball and most of them don't deserve this. Fotball industry increases income inequality especially in developing countries. On the other hand, I hate fanatics. Galatasaray-Fenerbahçe fanatics fight and even can kill each other.

yes, of course, I am a Football fan. I am from Argentina. We love Football. It is almost a religion here. I am a Newell´s Old Boys supporter. This team is famous because Leonel Messi started his career here. It is located in an industrial city near Buenos Aires called Rosario. this team is also famous around the globe because of the Leeds United´s head coach " Marcelo Bielsa" recently champion and promoted back to the Premier Liga. Newell´s t-shirt is red and black. Oh man it´s gorgeous!.

Even though I'm not a football fan, I have a favourite team, FC Barcelone, I've been supporting them for many years; actually, I became a fan of that team since I met my husband because he is very keen on football and a good player too. He used to play with a third division team. he's been watching the Spanish league and supporting FC Barcelone since he was 15 years old.

I'm a football fan and used to play it a lot before I get injuries. I cheer for PSG (Paris) and Chelsea (one of London teams). PSG just lose the Champions League final against Bayern Munich...such a pain..it was the first time of our history (since 1970) we reach this stage of the competition. We gained experience and will come better for next season.

I am a football fan. In my town, there are two big teams: Red Star Belgrade and Partizan Belgrade. I cheer for Red Star Belgrade unlike most of my friends. Red Star Belgrade is the greatest team from Serbia and the whole Balkans. In season 2018./2019. in the group stage of Champions League, Red Star Belgrade beat Liverpool 2-0 in Belgrade (unfortunately lost in Liverpool 4-1). Even after that, we still finished the group stage as 4th (last). This season (2019./2020.) we were horrible and finished up last in the group stage, Olympiakos was better after a suspicious penalty in 90th (last) minute. But, Red Star Belgrade is important for one more thing, we won a Champions Cup, (elite football competition before Champions League was invented.) and Clubs World Cup in football, all in season 1990./1991. Hope it changes back to good old times.

Actually I like football matches a lot, especially when my favorite team play with other it is amazing load voices flags and whistles along the match
In Serbia, Red Star Belgrade especially, we have very loud fans with flags and torches. They always make amazing choreography before the match starts. I like cheering, it's even better at Champions League or Europa League.

Of course I'm a football fan and my favorite team is Borussia Dortmund. I also have a season card for all the home games in the stadium. It is called Signal Iduna Park but the real and old fans of Borussia Dortmund still call it Westfalenstadion because it is the old name of the stadium. The stadium was build in 1974.

Hi there, glad to see everybody here sharing their insights about an interesting content.Of course I like football especially when I was participated in it .My favourite team is Juventus also known as an Old lady .In my opinion it is wonderful team because it has sophisticated history and obviously it has passed various hurtles before establishing its superiority and obtaining numerous fans all around the world .Moreover the supervisors of the teams always continue to strive and they try to combine old school players with youngsters by adding experienced players.
