Which teams do you root for?

I watch a lot of football in European leagues have different teams that I root for.
The Netherlands - Feyenoord.
Spain - Real Madrid.
England - Arsenal.
Germany - Dortmund.
Italy - AC Milan

The big rumor that's dominating the football world is that Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving Real Madrid for Juventus.
Do you think that he'll actually leave? Who will replace him at Real Madrid?


I am an Ajax fan, and am happy to see another fan of the Eredevisie around. Just curious, why Feyenoord?

Growing up in Netherlands, most people are fan of one of the big three, I started watching football when Feyenoord was good in the early 90's. I liked that team and became a fan.

My Parents are from the Netherlands, but I have never lived there for more than a few months. My Dad was a huge Feyenoord fan, so I guess becoming an Ajax fan was a good way to rebel and piss him off.

The modern game is high-pressing, fast passing, high intensity attacking football.  Trying to win games 1-0 doesn't work like it did in the mid 2000s.  He just can't evolve.

Could not agree more the sooner hes leaves the better, we look like Champinship team

A midfield 3 of Fellani, Matic and Herrera vs City's mobile, high tempo attack is a recipe for disaster...wingers tasked with tracking back incessantly...it's the manner in which you lose that often says more...I'd be fine getting tonked trying to emulate what Liverpool did to City last season with technically better players such as Fred, Mata, Pereira (especially w/ Pogba out).  A team of sideways passing trees is not winning you anything in 2018.
