Why do people like football so much? I know each to their own and whatnot but to me football is full of cocky p****s and their fans can be abhorrent and ghastly creatures. I was a fan of football when I was a kid because it gave me a sense of community-maybe I've answered my own question. Do any of you feel the same way as me or is football your life-and what makes you enjoy the sport if so?

I love football a lot. Im a girl from an immigrant family so it wasn’t really introduced to me from a young age. I think it was the 2010 World Cup that made me interested because football is something that connects millions of people. Its thrilling, innovative, gripping a lot of the time. I get why people would grow to dislike it in recent yrs because of the diving and VAR but I definitely enjoy it (especially going to the games themselves).

The skills of great and well-known footballers laid the foundation for my interest in this sport. It was their special and unique play with the ball what fascinated me. And the wonder goals of course. They have shown me that it is a creative sport. That was the beginning of my passion for football.

football isn’t really a big thing in my household. we’ll watch things like the Euros or the world cup, but we don’t make it our life. i used to play in high school but i stopped after our coach left. football brings around a sense of community it’s fun to watch the almost goals and the “oh so close” moments. i live watching my country play but i don’t keep up with player stats. it’s fun to laugh at the fouls and the way the players make themselves overreact injuries to get advances. although i have to say football is a tough sport. it’s not all fun and games. i’ve had some crazy gashes in my life. and getting kicked by those boots. never again. but anyway. football. patriotism. not that we need any more of that. but it’s also something to be proud of as a community. a lot of people won’t agree with that but i stand my ground and say that we should be proud. that’s it.

I hate the football of today, and the stereotypical fan is a mouth-breathing dunce chav, but I like the tactical and squad-building side of it, as well as the bursts of emotion.
