Football/soccer is all average people in europe have going on in their miserable lives. Their lives are limited to their boring job and going on strikes (world champion is France). Yes the French won the world cup but what have they done recently? HOw many games did France win in the 2010 world cup? How did they do at the 2012 euro?
If soccer didn't exist, half of the population would have suicided. That's the vibe I get in here, I live in France.
PS: And doesn't Beckham play for PSG now in 2013? He also played for the Galaxy at a younger age. So PSG is also a destination for washed up old players? What about that fake Swedish guy named Zlatan? He's about 32 and has to settle for PSG?
PPS: soccer blows. It's for fans who like to throw banana peels on black players.
PPPS: A euro who uses a Michael Jordan (an American) GIF to mock me? Did you know what Alexis Ajinca (french player) got made fun of by Michael Jordan because he was playing a soccer video game? LOL
I was hesitant to reply to this post because it's just too ridiculous and stupid, I don't know where to start. LOL
First of all, USA won't catch up to France in football/soccer in our lifetime. Never. Football has to be embedded deep in American culture for that to happen. No way football dislodges American football and baseball in the US for them to become dominant in this sport. Europe has like a 100-year gap on America, not so much with basketball.
Second of all, you're saying something about soccer being all about people leading boring miserable lives. LMAO. Hey.. Americans have the best lifestyles in the world being saddled in foreign debt and massive unemployment.
Count yourself lucky that the Chinese hasn't pulled out all their money or else...
Third, Zidane has retired and the current crop of French players are not as good as 15 years ago. How many times have the USA made it to the World Cup finals?
P.S. Zlatan is one of the best players in the world at age 32.
P.P.S. I'm not European.
