lol! Poor England gets shit on all the time. I'm roughly a third English (I think my DNA results said about 37% and add in all the other UK countries that's 48%) so it's hard to not root for them (2% of me is Irish so 2% of me hates them!)

I would rather drag my balls across a football field of broken glass than subject myself to watching soccer.ย

So much stopping. 20 seconds (if that) of action then 5 minutes of waiting.ย 

Don't get me wrong, it's like chess or League of Legends. Counters/counter counters/luck etc.ย 

But come on...ย 


11 minutes of action in a 3hr and 12 minute game.ย

Huge soccer fan but these group play games have been so boring.ย  It seems like every team is just packing the box on defense and there is no open play.ย  I've never seen so many blocked shots/crosses in my life and its starting to get reaaaal boring

International football is almost always like this in the group stages (at least for European teams in big tournaments, aka Euros / World Cup)

Yeah I'm starting to only watch the bigger matches for that reason. But Germany France yesterday was a let down.

I thought it was a little slow to be honest. I was hoping for at least one honest (not own) goal. But France had some really good runs and Germany had some excellent chances. Shame no (real) goals though.

They've got a good team and they've got a fairly light group, I think they should make it to the round of 8 fairly easily.

Soccer in the states is the equivalent of baseball to Europeans. Nobody really cares about it from my experienceย

Basically true. Its gaining popularity here (USA) but yeah we will never be like Europe.

Funny you should say that - as a Brit, when I come over to NYC for work, sports bars are usually pretty full during PL games, and I have had Americans want to talk to me about "soccer" if I'm wearing a "jersey" - but of course I get that those people are a niche group within America lol

Yes thereโ€™s definitely pockets but it feels like itโ€™s very uncommon for me to find a soccer fan

Once Hansi is in I think Germany would be straight lethal.

Oh I'm 100% with you. I adore Hansi, as I'm a diehard Bayern fan. Tough to see him go, but glad he got that gig and looking forward to Nagelsmann.

Looking for good football from teams, but they are so boring, Can't enjoy with the 90% of games. One game was pretty cool was Netherlands vs Ukraine and of course France is so overpowered!
