    What is known in the US as soccer, in the rest of the world, is known as football and in fact, it is the original football. I know that in the US it is not a very popular sport but do you ever watch soccer?

    I mean maybe you may watch like you watch tennis sometimes, or golf or any other sport that is not your favorite.

    My wife likes soccer. She played for many years. I watch it every now and then. I do watch it during the Olympics. I watched the world cup on mute. They need to ban those horns.

    I'm not a big fan of watching football but i enjoy playing the sport Flexin that's a great idea i just think instead of watching it go out and play it for yourself i just find watching football really boring and uninteresting.

    I watch it a lot, it's the most popular sport in Europe. I agree about the horns in South-Africa, that was so annoying to hear :)
    I also played football/soccer for over 12 years, until I started to go to university. Just love it.

    I watch it as much as I can. I have a couple of European teams I root for and I watch MLS in the states. I love the WC qualifying; it can be much more exciting than the actual World Cup sometimes.

    Football or soccer is one of my hobby sports, so indeed I like it. I do watch some interesting matches but now all of them. It is a qualifying season for FIFA 2014 at the moment so a lot of matches are really interesting, On November will be the continental paly-offs, but let us see If I get the time to watch.:)

    I am in the US and actually prefer soccer over football. I think soccer is more pure and athletic where football is big brutes and lots of padding and equipment. I know that is unpopular to say here, but I assure you...I disappear during the Superbowl since it bores me to tears. I do watch the commercials later on youtube though, but I will not sit through THAT game to see them.

    Your foot(?)ball resembles to our rugby, it's a really tough game. I do follow "soccer" I lived near Sporting Clube de Portugal stadium and went there every two weeks, so it runs in my blood. :)

    Hell yeah, I'm a big soccer fan and in my country soccer is the king of sports. I loved to watch Real Madrid play since I was a kid, and I also play with my friends during the weekends. It's a great game even if in the last period the quality of the game diminished.

    Soccer is just a beautiful game. I love that it requires just like all the athletic traits I have..Only speed, endurance and coordination. Nearly everyone in my country love soccer…also my brother and father likes soccer too. I enjoy it when we can sit in the sitting room and all of us watch the game peacefully and comfortably everyone free to cheer his team.

    Despite I understand better how soccer is played, as opposed to football association, the true fact is that I'm not sports enthusiast to spend time watching those matches nor any other, excepting perhaps boxing and wresting from time to time.

    However I used to watch it when living with my parents and my uncle was visiting for the sole purpose to enjoy with my father any sport aired on TV.

    I watch soccer, but not an ardent fan as many of my friends. They watch the premier league, champions league and all possible leagues that you can think of. I, on the other hand only love the world cup. Was gunning for Brazil to win in the last edition.

    Eventhough football isn't that much popular in India, I love to watch European football.
    Yes, Ronaldo is in red hot form and I think he is the strongest favorite to win Ballon D'Or this time.

    It would be insane that the injured Messi would win it again, but I've seen strangest things happen in football so we never know...

    I am a huge soccer fan and love the english premier league. I am not one to support a losing team and that is why i am and have always been a manchester united fan. I think that soccer is a really terrific sport.

    Manchester is picking up it's pace and City also improving, just Tottenham seems to be coming down, it's the crazier Premier League I can remember in years, really competitive.

    Actually I can't work or go for any other function when there are games going on. I always make sure I am on the movie to know concerning any game going on.

    I don't usually watch soccer except when it's time for the FIFA World Cup. It only happens every once in four years so I'll usually watch that instead of the annual FIFA and the different Leagues.

    I have watched a little soccer but not enough to really know any players. We had a soccer team in high school and I wanted to play because it was something new but with all dat running, I'm glad I didn't try out.
