    Default problems with articles

    Hello everybody
    I have already written this message but I don't know where I have sent it, since I can't see it in the list of the new topics. I hope this it will work.

    are the following sentences correct:
    I play for Juventus
    I play for Juventus football club
    I play for the Juventus football club
    I play for the football club Juventus
    The use of articles is sometimes really difficult for me.
    Thanks a lot
    Ripley

    Personally, I prefer it without the definite article:

    I play for Juventus Football Club. I left Manchester United Football Club to play for them. :D
