What Is That One Little Thing You Love When U Watch A Football/Soccer Match
6 years ago
I have a couple

The echo sound when the ball is shot hard

The response of the crowd to every play or miss or shot

When people fake to get free kicks

Bad calls from the ref

Smell of trampled grass.

Banter from the stands to away players, within taste.

Watching home fans suffer.

Being able to drink beer in the stands in Aus.

The journey to the game

Throwing flares at the opposition goalie

Spilling beer on the away fans in the lower tier

Pointing a laser towards the ref's eyes when the opposition player is being blatantly fouled in the box

The ole song or any variation there of, for instance yelling ole for a string of completed passes.

Meeting people before the game, and juggling the ball with them, maybe scoring a few coronas or Guinnesses or Heinekens depending on the location.

Standing up the whole match

When a player gets nutmegged and the whole stadium goes aaaaaayyyyy!

Watching players warm up before the game, when I was in LA watching Barcelona, Iniesta was injured so he warmed up before the other players just dribbling the ball around will never forget that. Or seeing Messi about 30 feet away kicking a ball with Dani Alves, awesome

Not even gonna' lie, I *hate* the oleing at completed passes. Arsenal are cursed by it or something, whenever fans start oleing too early in the match, it almost always sours within a few minutes of the oleing. -_-

I was at a European game at Ibrox one night, Rangers vs Maritimo and it went to penalties, Nearly 50'000 people booing and whistling when maritimo were taking their penalties, the noise was deafening but incredible! I loved it!

And the other is build up to an Old firm game (Rangers vs Celtic), the anticipation and excitement, together with the nervous feeling that comes before kick off, because nobody wants to lose these games is special to me!

Roll on the 2nd of January!

Well my favorite part of watching people is: Yes I like the crowds react when the ball misses to the goal, when the player takes the corner kick the fans started to show their middle finger and stuff haaha I love it, and most of all I like when the fans suffer when they lose! Its just funny when they score then silence appear!

I love watching a referee make a call. Then you the player pleading the ref to change it. Haha what's the ref going to do? Take back his call?

The chanting from the terrace

When I go to the Columbus Crew games, I love being in the Nordecke and chanting with everyone, it's amazing to have everyone singing all at once and just supporting the team

I love the goal celebrations. I can never remember the name of this Icelandic team, but they have the funniest goal celebs. They had one that was involved flopping about like a fish.... I'll find a link

Oh Iceland.... How they find time to practice actual soccer I have no idea, because they're clearly spending a LOT of time creating and practicing these goal celebrations. But it's utterly hysterical.

I like watching the players who get up front. I like watching what they do with their feet when they're under pressure from defenders. Suarez in the box is tonnes of fun, so is Cristiano Ronaldo haha (: I'm not very good at watching for strategy and general formations, so I watch individual players to make up for it lmao /pathetic /n00b
Lalalalynds (Arsenal) 5 years ago
Oh Jade ily. No, but I know what you mean, I watch the Ajax games solely for Eriksen and I ain't even ashamed to admit it. Just like when Wilshere's on the pitch, you know he's going to do amazing things with his feet so you just keep an eye on them the entire time

I like how quickly funny chants can be created by the fans, and I even like that no matter what time the game is broadcast at, you can see and hear the fans making rude gestures! They swear like anything! And no bleeping. The commentators just ignore it
