sadly the football season starts next week so the spirit of sportmanship showcased over the past 16 days will be consigned to the dustbin by over paid, over indulged and professional cheats that are footballers !
Why football was in the Olympics (as is basketball) is beyond me the wrong sports for a competition designed around sportsmanship
It's a disgrace to see fans swearing at the referee, and shouting "It's not fair!"
So, who apart from me isn't watching it tonight?
Love me football personally.
Agree they act like spoilt brats a lot of the time and they're are disengaged from the rest of society and sadly it's no longer a working mans sport but l love the game.
I love it too. Playing and watching.
l dont play anymore tbh mate. Self employed and l dont fancy being laid up for 6 week after being chopped in half by some half drunken greb on a Sunday morning.
Besides, the pub team l used to play for we used to end up in the alehouse till early evening every Sunday which sort of negated the idea of trying to get fit by playing football.
l remarked once that this drinking team had a serious footballing problem.
Outstanding goal from Defoe there. Really rate the lad, always have done. Would love to see him at Goodison Park every week. Who's ya team FP?
I cant wait for the season to start, been a few pre season games already, but missing the Man City game as I will be in the airport on the way to Paris!
looks like some major transfer developments now Vanpersie has agreed his deal, IF he can pass the medical.
Defoe is wasted on the bench and should move to get a game, cant stand players who just stay for the £££, I would want to be playing regularly

Defoe doesn't strike me as the type of player who will be happy to sit on the bench, in fact l know he's not looking at the moves he's made over the years and the quotes attributed to him.
What l do think is that he's very much a london or southern type of lad that l dont foresee moving past the Watford gap at any point.
Very much a mummy's boy l think. Much like Bainesy for us.
What already ???
So here we go for a litany of "I've bruised my toe and cant play" abuse to officials* and general boorish behaviour...
Can't we have a year off ?
* Can just see Steve Ganson or Stu Cumming's response to Rio Ferdinand's gobby agression
If ya dont like it Dave, stay out the thread.
Nobody's forcing you to read it and nobody wants to read your wingeing comments about it either.
Public thread that anyone is free to make a comment on....
and the OP was making a protest ABOUT football, not in praise of it
Suppose as they say the truth hurts...

Of course you're free to make a comment on it. It's just people that do nothing but winge and moan about things they have no interest in always bemuse me.
If you dont like it as much as you say you dont then why even bother commenting on it? It just makes you sound a particularly bitter and concieted individual.
l guess some people are never happy unless they're moaning.
Come on now girls...calm down...or the ref will tell you to "f*** off"
It's not a moan? "just a comment on the sad waste of tv time and the pages taken up in the paper by a bunch of overpaid girlies"
Is that not a moan?
The sad waste of tv time you moan about, 90% of football coverage now is on SKY, channels you have to subscribe to so if you dont like the game l cant see you being inconvenienced by that as you wont be paying for these channels will you???
There is a lot of the sports pages dedicated to it in the papers l would agree with that! Do you know why that is Dave? Because it's the most popular sport in the country!
Again, for someone who has such disdain for the game you're spending a lot of your time complaining about it.
l personally cant f'in stand cricket. As such l wouldn't ever enter a thread about it with the sole intention of complaining about Kevin Pietersen's behaviour recently.
Yeah and l put a positive spin on it which is what is generally regarded as a better thing to do in life.
You carry on being a misery guts though, seems to suit you just fine.
