MTF Posters Favourite Football Teams
 
Yes, there is a thread on GM for the what are the players favourite football teams.

This thread is for the MTF posters and which team or teams are their favourite ones. Well coming from a small country like myself and not having a great league, there is the team you support at home and then follow a major league and there are people like that around.

Yes, it's the global football played with the feet, not Aussie Rules, rugby, gridiron or other impostors that call their game football.

It doesn't matter where they are from, whether they win or lose. If possible state your earliest memory of following this team, whether good, bad or clownish.

Club Social y Deportivo Colo Colo de Chile


My earliest memory : I remember players like Carlos Caszely - Roberto Rojas - Lizardo Garrido - Raul Ormeño - Jaime Pizarro (later) in my team and watching them on TV in moments when the local football was showed on Televisión Nacional (Torneo Nacional and Copa Chile ) . I became in a fan cos the way like the team play is what I'm looking for in Football : a mixture between Spartan football and offensive football wherever we play

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

Thanks for that Bad Religion, this is the sort of thing I am looking forward to reading.

Roberto Rojas wasn't a bad goalkeeper, but his poor acting skills cost Chilean football some years in the wilderness.

Copa Libertadores:1991

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:worship::worship:
-Matias Fernandez(he is now playing crappy football in Villareal:o)
-Alexis Sanchez:rocker:
-Ivo Basay
-Lukas Tudor(good player, not great thought)
-Humberto Suazo
-Ivan Zamorano

-Gonzalo Fierro
-Nicolas Cordoba
-Javier Margas
-Miguel Ramirez
-Fernando Vergara
-Miguelito Riffo:worship:

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

Newell's match? hm, 1992, I reckon, Copa Libertadores Final, we defeated Sao Paulo 1-0 (Berizzo -pk-)

there sre two popular teams here: Aldosivi, which plays in the 2nd division (Nacional B) and Alvarado, which does it in the third division, if my memory doesn't fail me

Ah the greatest sport on earth :yeah:... football that the ignorants call soccer (including in this country :rolleyes: )


England: Sunderland AFC

Bit of a stupid start to my support of them. My dad has always been a Tottenham fan so he had a lot of English football books around the house. One day I decided to have a look through some of them. One of them had all the tables for each season so for some reason the name Sunderland caught my eye and I started following their progress up and down the divisions throughout the book and afterwards I decided to become a Sunderland fan. That was in 1992... later that year I was delighted that they were able to make the FA Cup final from the 2nd highest division (whatever it was called back then).

Australian A-League: Melbourne Victory

The A-League has only been running for 3 seasons but it's had a huge impact on football in our country :yeah: I started taking an interest in the first season but at the start of the 2nd season I got a membership and started attending all the home matches and I've been a passionate supporter ever since... and they rewarded me with a premiership in my first season as a member :)

AC Milan till death

i was a fan since 1988-89 but the first match i remember watching was the CHL final against Benfica.
Best moment: the CHL final 1994 destroying Barcelona 4-0 and also the 2003 CHL final. The later was a poor level of play but beating Juve is always sweet

also a fan of FC Tirana in the domestic league

^^^ fanboy :D

CF Valencia for me. Since the times of Mendieta, Claudio Lopez, Kily Gonzalez, Canizares until now. I'm very sad they're having a bad season.

It all started with a match against Manchester United, and as I hate Man Utd., I decided to watch the match and cheer Valencia. Valencia lost, but I really loved them. So since then :couple:.

I live across the road from the guy who owns Melbourne Victory. There's footballs signed by the whole team lying around his (massive) front yard that his dogs chew up. :lol:
