In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

In the name of God, compassionate & merciful بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم


I despise football. A bunch of otherwise sloth ridden men frolicking in shorts in some patriotic ritual trying to kick an unethically produced methane filled football into a net the size of Japan to gain one goal to reach some Harry Potter like status on a league table - which, incidentally, they use for British schooling systems too - and for what?! It consumes the masses. It's worshipped. It's on right now and I'll be making extra dhikr when it's over.

England. The land of rain, alhamdulillah, fish'n'chips, sarcasm, multiculturalism, complaints, queues, accents and Muslims. Muslims in England.

There's not many sport's that can bring people together like football and though it might be true that people (guys) get to excited by it. It is however a good sport I think.
Its something that brings so many different people together, I think the 'english' way of football is very different from the football that exists everywhere else..its not treated as a pass time or a time to get away from the wife, kids..etc etc
Some people have a lot of passion for the game, heck if we had more football in school's maybe there would be more ambitious and less fat kids around..

@Adeel, a challenging sports to play perhaps, at least it keeps the male species occupied long enough for the counterparts to repair the chaos after'em. The English culture towards footy covers the spectrum; it can be a mere fitness regime or a means of escape or a religion, but that's just my observation, and as a girl, what do I know eh?
Ha@obesity reduction. I'll let the school governors know :P All hail physical torturous education.

Awww, I like football, but yeah it goes a bit far - not worth the lives that have been lost over match results - and that's just local club teams - with the WC it's a whole 'nother thing and yes, it goes too far. I have to admit, being an Amreekan, still love watching the WC and yes, I call it football, not "soccer" -what does that mean anyways? All the best sis! :-)
