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.

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

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.

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

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

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:

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

- Blackburn Rovers are my favourite football team. When I emmigrated to England from Canada as a kid, they were geographically the closest team to where I settled. I quickly became a passionate fan for life, and I have attended plenty of their matches over the years. Sure when I started supporting them, they were one of the best teams in English football, but I continued to back them pretty fanatically and go to their matches even after they were relegated from the Premiership in 1999. Blackburn is a very small and unfashionable place, and the football team represents the real focal point of the town.
- Being a Vancouvian I also root for the Vancouver Whitecaps. They are currently playing in the USL first division, with is one notch below the MLS in the North America football pyramid. One of our best moments was hammering Sunderland (an English Premiership team at the time) 3-0 in a friendly in 2005.
- I have strong Northern Ireland and in particular East Belfast connections, so naturally I love Glentoran. The Glens, like other teams in Northern Ireland, are semi-professional, but there are advantages to that, as their players are truly in it for the love of the game. I've been to the Oval to watch them in action a couple of times, and I've enjoyed it. Their local rivalry with Linfield (I've been lucky enough to see a derby between the teams live), is fierce but thankfully it doesn't have anything to do with religion.
- Ever since I've started following football, I've enjoyed watching La Liga, which in my opinion is currently the best league in the world. Valencia have been easily my favourite Spanish team since the mid-nineties.

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

What are the odds that Glentoran would be followed by Glenavon in this thread? About the same as either team winning the Champion's League, I think.
My memory is being taken to games on Sat. afternoon by my older sister's boyfriend. It was usually cold, wet, windy and miserable, but these sufferings were compensated for by being introduced to beer and ciggies at too young an age.
We hated Linfield too. But I do not know why you said the rivalry was not religious. Linfield was 100% Prod and the Glens 100% *****. It was worse than Celtic-Rangers. Hopefully things have changed.
If I remember right the great Glenavon star was Jimmy Jones, but I may be thinking of that great 50's single ''Handyman.'' Definitely not the same Jimmy Jones.

São Paulo FC, by heritage. I also happen to live near the club and my parents are members.

My earliest vivid (and painful) memory is the 1990 Brazilian Championship when we reached the final and lost to our rivals Corinthians 1-0. :(

My best memory is a tough call between winning the Toyota Cup for the first time against Barcelona (coming back from 0-1 to win 2-1), and the Libertadores title in 2005 when we thrashed Atletico Paranaense in the final 4-0 and I happened to be at the match.
