Whos the better soccer team? :D

River seems to have dominated for a few years, since Bianchi left Boca.
Who is the better team in your opinion?

Unfortunately, being from the US, I don't get the opportunity to watch football. The American kind, of course, but not what we Americans would call soccer. It's not a popular sport in this country, like it is in other parts of the world. Yeah, I shouldn't have answered in this thread, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

Nalbandian would say River and Calleri would say Boca.

I actually support Independiente.

The question is whether the person is a gallina or a bostero.

I prefer Boca over River, but I'd rather Independiente or other smaller sides.

Boca are my favourite team from the Primera.. when Tevez played for Boca I always used to stay up till 3am to watch it.

I'd like to visit the Bombonera one day, looks like a clifftop LOL.

They are mad at the Bombonera and don't flash too much stuff around and if you were a Boca shirt you should be alright.

I know a lot of Boca fans and maybe passionate could the right way to describe them.

Unfortunately Argentine soccer has been dogged for many years by problems such as economy and crowd violence, as the hooligan gangs often get free tickets off foolish club Presidents. The derby in Avellaneda seems to always produce crowd trouble.

You'd be alright as long you are cautious and the problem isn't just in Argentina.

Used to enjoy watching them when Insua, Silvera, Milito etc were in the side. Been in decline since sadly.

Are you one of these who has to support winners in football?

Well they don't have much of a clue the admin and they have to sell their best players even more so than other teams.

Just as Mariano Puerta, who's had a nice tribute in the Bombonera right after his amazing performance in Roland Garros for making the final and for being xeneixe ;)

I would like to add other problems:
- Grondona (AFA president) and his "agreements" with media owners
- the media and their preference by Boca and River
- the difference of economic power between Boca / River and the rest of the teams (that allows that today they buy good projects of players from the small teams by little money, and later, sometimes without mediating 30 days, they resell them outside for much more money. Then, every day the poor teams are poorer... well, there is not much difference to which happens to our countries :sad: )

That doesn't surprise me at all sadly, especially since it seems that South American players are the like the natural resource and then they go to the big Euro clubs and the directors take the money for themselves.

I would describe them as irrational...

Howver, the best team is the last 10 yr is clealy Boca. River consistently sucked in intenational cups. And they will suck again this year with pasarella.

A little mad?

I always remember the story some years ago when Boca lost 2-0 (I think) to River. After the match, Boca fans murdered two supporters of River Plate and declared proudly this made the final result 2-2.
