Villareal's kit.


Recommended Posts

This thread's the opposite to Alpha Signia's one.

It won't be as popular, I prefer moaning myself - but let's have a thread where we just say what we love about football.

I love Villareal's kit. One colour, no sponsor - gorgeous.

Eastern-European teams with thrilling and bizarre words in their name, like "Party-Hat Belgrade" or "Borisov Explosion".

The crazy stuff South American football fans get up to.

Scott Parker.

Everyone else's hatred of Leeds United.

German football - just how it should be. Cheap tickets, bags of goals in each game, centred around home-grown players, games with good atmosphere, standing, different title contenders every year...I could go on.

Being really busy or forgetting your team is playing that day, and turning on Sky Sports News minutes after full time to find out your team's won.

Football grub.

Sporting Lisbons kit - Beautiful

Foreign stadiums with the Olympic running track around it

Sporting Braga's stadium built into a mountain

Chivas and Athletic Bilboa's originality (only Mexican and Basque players allowed for each club)

Andres Iniesta

Waking up and watching football in bed (8am KO for me folks)

Dutch football and it's attack only policy - so many goals!

El Classico (the real one) Chivas vs America - the celebrations are amazing

The World Cup and watching smaller nations upset the odds - South Korea beating (cheating) against Italy was brilliant

The release of the fixture list and the anticipation

Mascots fighting

Watching Zidane in his prime, lining up a 25 yard freekick waiting for the net to bulge

France winning WC 98 in their home country - special

You mean tripe like this?


I think every Blue SQ club has a better stadium then the most of russian clubs.

Our stadiums are awful. The biggest one 'Luzhniki' is the most hated arena in the country.

I love brittish stadiums. Especially small ones.

That is definitely one of the best feelings, but it is comfortably beaten from top spot by coming from behind to beat your fierce rivals with only 10 men.

That van der Laan goal.

That Wanchope goal.

Doing the double over Liverpool.

That Pearson goal. (Just a shame it was tainted a little by the season after).

Seeing big sides get relegated to the third tier (Man City, Sheff Wed, Leeds, Forest etc).

3rd round cup draw

The week before forest away planning logistics

Watching old season reviews

Away crowd celebrations

Playing Football Manager until I'm blind

forest losing - it takes a small part of pain away from a weekend when we lose

The feeling that no matter how **** your week is, you'll be going to watch your team on Satdee

Train to Derby

Staying in on Satdee, watching Sky Sports News on loop, then MOTD, then Football League Show

That feeling when we score at forest. Can't speak, can't move - just frozen

Walking up the stairs and seeing the grass for the first time in two weeks

When fans get behind the time after a sustained period of pressure

Watching Norwich and Swansea - they're great

I love hating Lee Camp

Seeing a Derby shirt somewhere outside of Derby

Goal mentals after a last minute winner.

Pitch invasions.

The last day of the season.

Chatting **** whilst p*ssed up on the train coming back from a long away trip.

Arriving back at Derby station at 1 in the morning and attempting to get in the Waterfall whilst absolutely smashed.

The buzz around town when we play/beat Forest.

Every man and his dog turning out for Forest.

Meeting your mates, drinking at stupid o'clock, fry up in town, quick read of the daily rags on the morning of a big match.

Shouting "Up the Rams" whenever you see a stranger in a Derby shirt whilst on holiday.

Knowing how **** our songs are, but still joining in with them because you can't think of anything better.

Cut shins after the goal mental.

Saying, you're never going again, but going back the week after for more punishment.

Still getting immense joy from singing 'We are staying up', despite it meaning we've had a really **** season in the Championship.

Being ill and watching "Premier League Years", and hearing commentary like "and it's Heskey....using his blistering pace OH WHAT A GOAL!"

Seeing Mario Balotelli and knowing that when you're ill in ten years time and watching this season back on Premier League Years and how you'll be saying "they don't make 'em like that anymore".
