Yes. Scottish Premier League (SPL) Celtic won 1-0 after a hard fight. Man U also won 2-1.

No they aren't, they play in second league, but many famous players are issued from it, they can't keep them because of lack of enough money

I think that most of you not... but have you ever heard from Athletic Club? It's a team from the North of Spain (from Bilbao). We normally "fight" to enter the UEFA Cup (a competition of a lower level than the Champions League), but this year we are trying to save the category :-( .

What's the matter with this team? That in the more than 100 years of Spanish League, it has always been in 1st Division, and it has never had foreign players (non-Spanish players) and most of them are Basque. (However, some years ago Bixente Lizarazu, Basque but born in the French Basque Country played in Athletic, but he's not regarded as a foreigner.)

Furthermore, in 1998 we made 100 years since our foundation and we achieved the 2nd place in the competition and entered the Champions League. And we played the final of the UEFA Cup in 1977 against Juventus, but lost because of the value of away goals. We are also, after Barcelona, the team with most "Copa del Rey" (literally, King's Cup, a competition between Spanish teams) championships won.

Hey people!

Are you talking about soccer? What is it? :-o :-D Hahaha! :lol:

I love soccer, like any good Brazilian. ;-)
After all, we are the soccer country! :mrgreen:

This zone any one can say comments on football and footballer or tell us news about any team in the world like Real madrid , Barcelona ,Liverpool ,Juventus ,Lyon, Marseille ,Paris saint-germain ,Arsenal , Al-Ahly and Al-zamalek.
How could you forget to mention a Brazilian team??? :-o :-o :-o :)

São Paulo and Internacional, for example!!! These teams won the last two International Cup in Japan!!! :-o Ow... Man, here in Brazil anybody believed that Internacional could win Barcelona. And in the game the incredible happened! We, Brazilians, have laughted of Ronaldinho Gaucho's face. :p


And in 2005, we had São Paulo X Liverpool. Gosh, I never will forget this game. I almost had a heart attack that day. Long life to Rogerio Ceni! By the way, São Paulo is my team and I love it. I'm fanatic, I watch all the games, I shout, I say bad words, haha, I go to the stadium, oh well, I'm really a fan.

You know Kaka and Cicinho, don't you? Well, they came from São Paulo team. ;-)
Write my words that this year we will win the Brazilian Championship again!

And we will have Boca Juniors X Milan this year. Wow, this is going to be a great game! That that win, will be the team with more International Championships won. (Both have 3. [Alias, São Paulo has 3 too, hehe]) :cool:
I bet on Milan! :up: Kaká, Ronaldo, Dida, Serginho (from São Paulo too), Ricardo Oliveira, well, it's almost a half of the Brazilian team. Let's go Milan!

Sorry to be such a party popper in this thread but truly I never tried soccer nor finished a game of soccer. I think it´s such a nice game but not so common here in the Philippines. :cool:

Hi, people!

I like football and I'm fan of Shakhtar Donetsk - for me they are the best team of the world.

Shakhtar - the guys from Donbass,
Shakhtar - for victory with him!
Shakhtar - the best on the grass,
Shakhtar - this is a perfect team!

This is a liberal translation from Russian one of the Shakhtar fans' songs))

Now Shakhtar plays in the Champions League and he has a very good chance to take the second place in his group. Unfortunately Shakhtar was beaten by Milan, but early Shakhtar had won his mathes against Celtic and Benfica).

The next picture shows how Shakhtar's striker Cristiano Lukarelli(in the middle in orange-black T-short) is celebrating a goal.
