I'm not a football enthusiast / lover, so I won't be contributing much here.

But, immediately after my Btech in 2018, I had a lot of free time, to kill the time, I watched Football World Cup - 2018. 

Too many emotions. It was fantastic. Just wish Croatia had won the world cup instead of France. 

Big fan of Luka Modric' ❤️. He inspired me a lot & his personal struggles, his dedication etc inspired me & later, I started my civils preparation.

Arsenal fan here. I watch all the Arsenal games even now unless they are not a day before or during the exams :p

Back in college, I used to watch most of the PL games, the knockout games of the CL. Europa League was eww anyway, but lately I have been watching Europa too :p

I think Atleti won't bottle this. Their matches with Real Madrid are over. They just have to see out the game against Barca to seal it. I am pretty sure Barca and Real will have one or two more upsets the way they have been playing this season.

Yes, I hate him but he is funny :)


I guess he needs another pushback from Wenger to look up. Haha.

Yeah! The gap is 6 points. 12 rounds to go. But they do have away fixtures to Sevila and Barcelona. It can become very tricky for them. I do hope they win though. I like Simeone.

@DramaticAdmiral some of the bigger matches are too good to pass up. Even if I don’t watch them fully I generally have a live stream on by my side. 
Now I’m trying to cut down and might stop watching altogether till the prelims. (Or that’s what I’d like to tell myself)

@Caesar cool 😎. Mbappe was good too, especially his running was godly.

@AzadHindFauz that’s ancient history :P
I started my foray in football with Chelsea, only because one of my good friends liked them. Slowly got more and more into football, went out to buy a Chelsea jersey, wasn’t available, Arsenal’s was. That started my love-hate relationship with the club. 
Although I stuck with Chelsea till the night they won the CL. Then started watching Arsenal and fell in love with Wengerball. 
Arsenal is still my go to club but the club just doesn’t have the same excitement to it. Earlier even in defeat Arsenal played some breathtaking football. Now it’s just:
-Play well in the start
-Score/Get close to scoring
-Make an error and concede
-Try to breakdown the team
-Get hit on counters
-Bring on Willian
-Pain

Its good to see a "Gooner" here :) I used to watch almost all matches right until I took UPSC plunge. Nowadays its difficult to watch them and not feel despair.

Mour would have devised something against it, most probably aggressive marking and counter attack
