I don't know who said it, but they mentioned US fans not liking soccer, and I couldn't agree more. Soccer is such a great sport, and there's so many americans that don't like it, probably because the US doesn't dominate it.

I grew up in Texas where football is king but my favorite sport is actually lacrosse but I love soccer as well. I really think the World Cup is one the absolute best tournaments in the world. I got to go see the Brazil-Netherlands quarterfinal game in 1994 in Dallas and it was one of the best sporting events I've ever been to. 3-2 Brazil back when Bebeto and Romario were two of the best forwards and connected on a sweet one touch goal. The last World Cup killed me as the U.S. did so poorly- - oh well at least we tied the champs.

The reason I think that the US doesn't like soccer is becuase we are a nation that wants instant gratification and soccer doesn't really give that. To score a goal involves a build up that most people in the states don't want to wait on. Instead they would rather see a homerun because it's instant and there is no real build up, it just kind of happens.

Very true but a Goal really MEANS somthing which people dont seem to under stand. Plus i think the are a TON of soccer fans in the US but are to "proud" to go watch a MLS game. Cuz it underneath them. Could also argue its MLS fault for the VERY shitty rules way back in 96 and turned ALOT of people off and now dont give it a second thought.

On a side note any one eles going to watch USA V England?

I'll be watching it. I also watch mls games because they are on frequently and now they have some pretty good young talent.

Sidenote: Just so everyone know my username doesn't have anything to do with soccer

Look, I don't want to be a dick or anythng, but I kind of don't like USA's style of play, nothing against the country, just don't really like their style.

In North America maybe, but in the world?? I think not. When it comes to rivalries, football (soccer) has it down to a fine art. Hear are the top rivalries that I can think of.

English/Scottish

Man Utd Vs Liverpool
Man Utd Vs Arsenal
Arsenal Vs Spurs
Celtic Vs Rangers

Europe:
Barcelona Vs Real Madrid
Inter Milan Vs AC Milan
Lazio Vs Roma
Dinamo Zagreb Vs Hajduk Split
Fenerbahce Vs Galatasaray

I don't blame you. It's weird though because the younger national teams all play a different style then what the national team plays.
