Re: Watching World Cup Soccer?

You got that right Marion, you know me too well! Only thing wrong with this world cup is that Scotland didn't qualify for it, again.... Ok, I'll get on board with the US then, USA, USA!!

I see from the news here this morning that football is finally getting more coverage in the US, is everyone watching the world cup now? They even mentioned loads on CNBC last night that lots of traders stopped trading at the NYSE to watch the last hour of the game, never thought I'd hear that!!!

Re: Watching World Cup Soccer?

Gavin....correct, soccer is  catching on in this country.  In fact, many children play soccer but then don't continue it on to adulthood as it happens in the rest of the world.  I love watching many different sports, but soccer is my favorite of all.
Sorry about the Scot's not qualifying this year.  Anyone from Dundee on the team?
Hugs,
Marion

Re: Watching World Cup Soccer?

Glad to hear that football is catching on in the US and I know that the MLS is getting bigger each year. Many of the best players from over here are looking to end out their careers over there. I guess that the payday helps as well for them!

Nope, no one from Dundee in the Scottish team but I wouldn't expect that as Dundee are not the biggest of clubs here. We haven't qualified for the World cup for some year now. Dunno how the Brazilians would feel about the tartan army marching down their streets going to the games though. This is what happened the last time we played in Paris and beat the French 1-0. This is just a few of us going to the game! smile

Re: Watching World Cup Soccer?

My daughter is in Russia for the summer doing research for a PhD.  Met no one to socialize with during month there until yesterday's game. She ventured alone into a neighborhood pub to see the game and found a  group of students from the US. One had gone to her undergrad school and one attending where she is now. Small world...US soccer fans will find each other even in Kazan.

Re: Watching World Cup Soccer?

It's funny but we watch the World Cup every time and quite often games that are not US games. We started years ago when our daughter got hung up on David Beckham. At that time we were recording middle of the night games so we could watch.
And actually we know several adults that still play regularly....including Mark's boss who just broke his foot playing, a couple of cousins (they met at a soccer match in college) and others. I used to play (not very well but loved it) and coached my brother's team one year. I am glad it's really catching on.....not to say that I don't still LOVE American football.

Go USA!

Re: Watching World Cup Soccer?

My daughter was a keeper in us during high school and then played for a college team over in england during JR year of college.  One highlight was her attending Tim Howard's summer training camp when she was 15- he told her she had good hands. She used to say it was our fault that she's only 5 foot 6.  It turned out to be a blessing and although soccer is still a passion, academics have taken her much further (to Russia).

Re: Watching World Cup Soccer?

Wow! World cup fever is spreading to the US too now, excellent! Over here as you could imagine kids start playing it at a very, very early age, just as soon as they are physically able to kick a ball really! The very, very best kids could be signed up for professional teams when they are still at school, 13, 14 etc but only the very best will ever get that far, a tiny percentage really.

Adults who play for fun, well there are literally hundreds of teams here in Dundee alone never mind the whole of Scotland.It's the number one sport in the UK and always will be. And to say that it can get tribal with loyalties etc would be a huge understatement! Went to my first Dundee match with my dad when I was about 5 I think.

Over the years we have had quite a lot of players from the US coming over to the UK and Europe to better their careers in their prime and that seems to be the way forward just now for the US game. My own club Dundee has a Texan consortium as owners now, Keyes Capital in Texas and has tie up's with  a team in Texas. Think that our coaches were over in Texas this summer running training camps on behalf of Dundee FC. Could be some promising young American players heading to my team as well! smile
