Re: MTF Posters Favourite Football Teams (soccer to the uneducated)

San Lorenzo de Almagro. My earliest memory is when we p´layed for the first and only time in the second division. My dad would take me to the stadium every Saturday. The support of the fans was massive. We collapsed the Boca, River and Velez' stadiums. I will never forget that.

Then, I had to wait until I was 20 yrs old to see San Lorenzo winning the league. I was in Rosario that cold June night. We were 1 point behind Gimnasia but they lost against Independiente and we beat Central. I cannot remember what I did between 9 pm and 6 am. I woke up in a hotel but not sure how I got there. Thanks God I was with some friends! The best player of that team was a Brazilian: Silas. The best player I've ever seen in San Lorenzo. Ruggeri also was an important leader. One of our big supporters was the US Ambassador at that time (CHeek) who appeared in every tv channel celebrating with the players.

We won the league again in 2001, thanks to Pellegrini (the current coach of Villareal, also famous for sending Tristelme back to Boca). The best thing of that league was that the coach of River (el trolo Gallego) said that River would win the league because San Lorenzo always chokes. However, it was River and the clown of Gallego who choked agaist Huracan and we won the league in the last match. Romeo, Romagnoli, Abreu, Coloccini, Ervitti were the best players of that team.

One year later, we won our first international cup: the Copa Mercosur. We beat Corinthians in the SF and Flamengo in the Final. The last match with Flamengo was scheduled on December 20, 2001 (the day that the Argentine crisis exploded) and the match had to be suspended because of the riots in Buenos Aires. I was already going to the stadiun, doing my best to escape from the areas where the riots were taking places, and had to go back home.

At the end of that year we won our second international Cup (Copa Sudamericana). We crushed Nacional de Medellin in the final (4-0 in Colombia). Romagnoli scored the goal of his life in that match.

And fianlly, we won again the league last year, thanks to Ramon Angel Diaz. Everyone was expecting us to crumble but we did not. Lavezzi (now in Napoli), Ledesma (now in Greece) la Gata Fernandez (now in Mexico) and Mendez were the key players of that team.

Now, we are waiting for a miracle: la Copa Libertadores!!

PS: Outside Argentina, I like Nacional de Montevideo y San Pablo (for beating Newells in the Libertadores final), Celtic, Porto, Napoli, Deportivo La Coruña, Olympique Lyon. And I hate Peñarol. Barcelona, Milan, Juventus, Totenham.

Nalbandian - JMDP - Djokovic - Nadal - Mathieu - Verdasco - Coria - Tipsarevic - Nieminen - Calleri

Re: MTF Posters Favourite Football Teams (soccer to the uneducated)

Celtic. Celtic/Rangers is part of the west of Scotland culture and you can't avoid it even if you want to. My first game was when I was 2 at the start of the 1986/87 season against Dundee.
Since then I've been to Parkhead and many away venues hundreds of times and seen some of the best players in the world pass through Parkhead.....McStay, Collins, Moravcik, Larsson as well as the likes of Laudrup, Gascoigne, Maldini, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Thuram, etc, etc

My best memory : Copa Libertadores 1991 . The sensation of being the best team in a whole continent is amazing ---> too good

I didn`t watch Copa Libertadores because I was 1 year old, my first remenbers are from 1996 nice team..... also semifinals in Libertadores Cup 97(lose in penalty kicks to former champions Cruzeiro).

Great Players I have seen in Colo Colo:
-Marcelo Espina
-Marcelo ''RAMBO'' Ramirez
-Marcelo Barticcioto
-Sebastian Gonzalez
-ARTURO VIDAL
-Matias Fernandez(he is now playing crappy football in Villareal)
-Alexis Sanchez
-Ivo Basay
-Lukas Tudor(good player, not great thought)
-Humberto Suazo
-Ivan Zamorano
-Claudio Arbiza
-El lonco Francisco anderson Huaiquipan
-Gonzalo Fierro
-Nicolas Cordoba
-Javier Margas
-Miguel Ramirez
-Fernando Vergara
-Miguelito Riffo


Colo Colo always play attack style. But with Spartan heart, were not like Universidad Catolica(Chokers,$$$$,wealthy club like PSV that not wins nothing) and Universidad de Chile who is an awful team


Colo Colo winning Libertadores:

my earliest memory is losing a title to a small team, when Palmeiras was already 10 years without getting any championship (1986).

No problem, the reply was informative.
I was always a bit confused because I knew East Belfast was where the shipyard workers lived and these were traditionally Prods, in the days before the ''troubles.'' There must have been an enclave of Catholics there though, because I am fairly sure that there was a disgusting amount of house-burnings there in the 60's and 70's.

Re: MTF Posters Favourite Football Teams

Paisley St Mirren FC, the buddies

as long as i remember

87 Scottish Cup winners and the club that gave Sir Alex Ferguson has first big break into management in the late 70's, too bad he fell out with a secretary over trying to help players get tax free expenses and increased wages and ended up being sacked and taking the club to court

who knows what might have been had he stayed ...

fave player of all time was Billy 'boy taggert' Davies and currently Mark 'Coco' Corcoran

we are moving ground for the start of next season... to Feg land, geez

the end of Love Street ... and the memories.

Re: MTF Posters Favourite Football Teams

Tranmere Rovers, England

Hometown club, in the third division of English football. A few friends chose to follow the nearest glory club (Liverpool) and be a sky tv fan, or follow Everton, Liverpool's smaller arch rival. Unlike most other leagues, the support and passion in the lower leagues is massive, and results in several large away support in many games.

I own a season ticket and go to about half of the away matches.

I spend about £500 a season on watching them!

As for preferred teams elsewhere:

Italy: Napoli
Japan: Urawa Reds
Argentina: Independiente
Brazil: Gremio
National teams: the British sides, Italy, Venezuela

Re: MTF Posters Favourite Football Teams

Growing up as a kid, I lived in Glasgow where everyone supports Rangers or Celtic. My dad was the club doctor at Partick Thistle, so I naturally became a fan. Had a season ticket and went to almost every match home and away from the age of 4 to 12 (when I moved to London). Still go to matches when I go back up to Glasgow, but it's hard to follow us too passionately because we're in the Scottish division 1 now

When I moved to London, I didn't really support a team. I had watched loads of English footy, but didn't support a team as such. I lived fairly close to Spurs, and Ossie Ardiles was manager at the time and the matches were bloody entertaining. A lot of friends I made were Spurs fans, so I went along to some matches with them and that's how I became a fan. Got a season ticket for a few years, but then I had to give it up when I went to university, and aren't able to get it back now. Still make it to as many games as I can, usually 10-15 a season.

In foreign leagues, I don't passionately support anyone. I love watching Barca play though, Messi is a genius and tend to watch a lot of Spanish football. In Italy, my favourite team is probably AC because I like Kaka but I wouldn't say I care overwhelmingly much. They better beat Arsenal this week though
