Conversely, women who go on and on and on about football...
Men with no interest in football are on a different level to those who are. I feel like there's something between us. Some unspoken wedge driving us apart. And I don't even like talking about football.
Women and football should never happen though, in any way whatsoever.
But its like blokes being into 'chick flicks' or bingo.
Its not that they're not good enough, its just that these principles are there for a very good reason.
merely because no human being on earth should be into chick flicks. Not even chicks. Who like flicks.
and it is mostly, obviously, a male thing. It's nice to be able to talk to someone you wouldn't neccesarily share interests with about something that is a common link between both. But at the same time i like men who aren't forcing themselves to like something so universal and it's their own opinion.
However i quite like women talking about football and sharing an interest if they genuinly like it. I'm not fond of women who want to like football to fit in with boys or are proud to like football because they're a girl though.
I quite like it when a girl takes an interest in football and is moderately well informed. If they're better informed than me, they can fuck off, but that goes for everything.
sitting in front of the big screen in footy shirts, there with their scumbag boyfriends, talking to eachother all the way through, not watching the match, but cheering/despairing loudly when someone scores.
Are you joking?
"I'm better than you because I was born in a different place." ?
just something I must have made up from the Oasis threads
Northerners have a better grasp on the English language. I think we abuse it a lot less than southerners, who are responsible for introducing all the Friends-isms to it.
what is a friends-ism?
statements having the tone of questions?
the salutation "hey!" as opposed to "Hello!" or "Hiya".
and dude, cool, statements? all that is only used by irritating people in the counties but not by normal people/city people.
on here, but they are very conciously acting more american rather than it being mainstream
And Scotchmen shouldn't.
They are the LAST members of this Union that should even ever consider Americanising their dialect.
they are horrifying people.
But The fit birds who like football are okay, they usually have tits to stare at.
by making her learn all the Spurs sqaud for last season :(
She still comes to watch some matches in the pub with me and mostly feigns an interest, which will do me :)
I'm not Suggs
sounds SO much better.
You totally should have left it.
to pull it off
are women allowed to be interested in women's football? are men?
(this question is for everyone)
Generally, few people if any are interested in women's football regardless of gender.
I'm not sure if 2 or 3 of the more aesthetically pleasing members of Team USA stripping off for Sports Illustrated really counts.
or your country is fucked.
From a 'being respected by DiS' perspective anyway.
"If a man does not like football, don't talk to him, he will be gay" - Brian Clough
and precisely nothing about anything else.
Brian Clough >>>>> Most other people, ever.
its more like saying you dont like having sex with women.
means my answer is Yes and Yes
and who will watch games with me. My current gf isn't hugely keen, but I'm slowly winning her over.
i'm pretty great then.
which I don't particularly mind.
I understand this makes football fans feel about me the same way I feel about people who describe their music taste as "a little bit of everything. Love the kooks and the killers lol"
tournaments are great. I love picking a really promising upstart country, normally an East European or African one, and watching them progress.
I use to follow it all the time and go and play all the time.
But then I left school and didn't play as much at college and kinda lost interest in watching any football at all.
The sport now bores me...
Anyone talkin football is unappealing as it doesn't interest me and I have no idea what they are going on about unless it was in the 90s when I was a kid.
I liked Rod Wallace he was wicked.
where he took on the whole team and then scored
he was no Yeboha mind
a woman at my work goes on and on about football. her desk is like a shrine to her favourite team. i think she's a closet dyke.
she just is
it's something to talk about, ain't it? And a good cheap social occupation.
I'm not obsessed like some guys, but I do take an interest and read the sport pages most days.
I'm not a moderator.
By the way, could you go a chicken supper?
I quite like rugby/men who like rugby though.
unless you support a team.
If you don't support a team it makes you gay.
Women should never even start with football because they don't know what they are talking about.
In summary, no, yes.
in football, because I dont have a local team, so I dont really have any enthusiasm for it. Girls can like what they like but I probably wouldnt go out with one that liked football a lot.
I will hold it against you if you take absolutely no interest in politics or global/social issues and follow football intensly. But that goes for pretty much anything.
