ITS FOOTBALL, NOT SOCCER!!! (Page 14)
YetiFinder: yeah true its time for change biggest change in soccer (football) history. It should have to happen earlier.
Debo_Rah: In final France Croatia. Even mi familia is mix uruguay Argentina and griezman wanna come to play in uruguay y will support croatas, they re second country small in the world as uruguay and i guess they deserve this big happienes, my English so bad, but hope all u can understand what i mean. France is very good team now they can have a chance next time
semp10: usa is unique yes we pad down why faster and harder hitters,ruby is a tuff game i agree.the only thing if so good they would play usa football.We have a few aussie players drafted,but alas most could not make the cut
It's okay, Semp, we know that football fútbol is the greatest sport of mankind, so great that the US couldn't think of any other name that football.
That WorldCup broke my heart. I knew coming in Argentina was weak because the qualifying games were poorly done and it was by Messi we got in but...I still had hope he would've had a WC win at least once before he finally retires.
sam7121968: England invented a game of running around kicking a ball in the mid-19th century (although the Chinese claim to have played a version centuries earlier). They called it “football,” not because the ball is played with the feet, but because the game is played on foot rather on horseback.Apr 2, 2012.
Paul013: You posted above that the English invented a game in the mid 19th century.
Have you changed that opinion ?
Im merely suggesting it was earlier because they wrote rules in 1858?
And first club formed in 1863
I personally have no opinion of who " invented" it
You seem to know . Well sort of, maybe . Well im not sure because maybe you changed your mind .
(Edited by Paul013)
The 19th century is the century that began on the first day of 1801, and ended on the last day of 1900.
'Mid 19th century' will be an approximation around 1850s.
You're both in agreement, Homes. Cheers.
Paul013: Association Football became more fornalised in England about the mid 1850's so why all the erroneous nit picking
mikieb05: How much more simple can it be? A game, with a ball, you kick with...wait for it...your foot.
Paul013: Mikie there is a lot of skill required because it's the ONLY ball sport played without hands 《excluding the goalkeepers》
maxaman2010: Soccer/Football in Europe is amazing!! Running up and down the "pitch" - whatever the hell "pitch" is - scoring absolutely ZERO goals despite the fact that the goal is about 4 miles wide... all day and 1-0 is a high scoring game. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
maxaman2010: El Comandante, you have not changed my mind one bit. I am an intelligent, grown man. I have an opinion and it is unnecessary to throw in nonsense about cartoons. I simply prefer games where there is some degree of scoring. European football is simply boring.
