    Teams you casually like/appreciate

    Everyone here obviously supports/likes Inter, but I'm wondering what team you like or are fond of. You don't necessarily need to go and find a forum of the club, get a tattoo of their crest and thump your chest in passion - but just a team you find to be interesting. Exclude teams you actively support. These are just casual fandoms.

    Aris Thessaloníki FC (Greece): The craziest fans in the world. Their games are pyro shows and they play in the 2nd division. I remember watching a video about them playing Boca Juniors a long time ago, and they recently faced again. But the point being, they're everything I love in football. So much passion for a club that has branches in everything, making it one of the most interesting sporting clubs in the world. Also watch their basketball team. Fucking scenes.

    Club Deportivo Palestino (Chile): I learned about this club a while ago, and something about a club with heavy mid-east influences playing in the Chilean top-tier just intrigued me. I love any club that is founded by an ethnic minority to find a valve for representation. It shows the grit of that community. Might buy a shirt of theres, pretty cool designs.

    Sheffield FC (England): Oldest club in the world that are overshadowed by United and Wednesday, but are the most down-to-earth clubs ever. They cherish every moment and publicity they get. Their sense of community and active participation make it a lovely club. They also sell their shirts for like $25, which always cool.

    Aberdeen (Scotland): I love the city of Aberdeen. Also like their kit.

    espanyol. i like them since that time zambrotta (former juventus and milan and a short stint at barca) said a taxi driver supporter of this team refused to let him get into the taxi because he was a barca player

    but i'm sure that if i think more about it i can name at least 5-6 teams i like for absolutely random reasons.

    also, as i mentioned elsewhere, i kind of appreciate the teams of the cities i have been to, most notably the heart of midlothian, but that doesn't qualify as "random".

    My username has nothing to do with the player of loserpool fc, it is just a reference to an Italian novel.

    I tend to keep a track on the teams that I played CM, and after that, FM with. Just casually check if they are playing while scrolling for the results on the weekends.

    Some of them include Millwall, Notts Forest, Leeds (I loved their team in 02/03 and when they dropped to lowers leagues it was always my go to team to start a career, Cruz Azul.

    I like Celta de Vigo for many stupid reasons, first I visit it because it’s not that far away and really liked it, Their kit is blue and white just like Porto, Benny McCarthy one of my favorite Porto players came from them and they also won 7-0 against Benfica one time for the UEFA cup with Benny and Mostovoi on the team hehe

    Just like Celta because of Benny I sometimes follow the teams that my favorite players came from or that they mention they’d like to retire just because.

    You see people from Colombia, Oceania, Ireland(i think) pretending that at least ONCE in their life they saw a young wc talent arriving and becoming a world star.

    Just a idea: if you want a serious debate about football, you should block everybody from countries that NEVER will win nothing and NEVER will have a balon d'or, for example.
    Whats the point about those guys opinions??? Can i go to some New Zealand chat and start to teach them how to recognize the better wc prospects among young Rugby players?
    Again, if you NEVER saw a young wc prospect struggling in his first years, like Kaka or Ronaldinho who were booed by they local supporters here, how could you judge????

    I only watch other clubs play if I'm betting, thus I'm quite familiar with most of them in the 3 top EU leagues.
    Champions League important/exciting matches and obviously the world cup, but I have no interest in other clubs appart from Inter. Zero.
    Casual appreciation, maybe Real Madrid because they're always a bunch of world class elites.

    Olympique de Marseille, probably because my family is from French descendency and I looked them up when I started following international football.

    It's not like I bother to watch any of their matches, but from time to time I like to know whey they stand in the league, if they are doing smart moves in the transfer window, that sort of stuff.

    My father's side of the family originates from France too...a forgotten wounded Napoleon's soldier on Slovenian ground saved by a Slovenian women...they fell in love and that's how the Sovdat(Soldier) bloodline started here...

    I grew a fondness in the last 5 years towards Sambenedettese. Hope they reach Serie A at some point.

    With most teams other than inter my sympathy usually changes based on how they play and who plays for them.

    I do kind of follow FC Zürich because they are my local team and i live like 10 min from the stadium so every now and then i ll go watch a game if i have nothing better to do.

    The other team would be Varese simply because my dads Family is from that area and i went to see a game with him when i was a kid. Sad thing that after almost reaching serie a couple of years ago they now sit in serie D.
    Which matches do you feel more, those with Juventus or Milan?
    "With Milan, without doubt. And I don't like the Rossoneri fans either because they have a way of behaving, particularly when they win, that I don't appreciate."

    None. If I'm not watching a team that I'm personally invested it, it's not exciting at all (unless it's a WC/Euro/UCL final or one of Inter's rivals losing).

    Though the only exception is Mourinho's current team (whatever that is at any time). I always root for that son of a bitch.
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    Speaking of which, I really like Porto. I was a very big fan of there's for a while when I had the Primeira Liga on TV, but my fandom waned since I got U-Verse and haven't been able to keep up. I assume I support them more-or-less because of my obsession with all-things Portuguese. Also they produce a lot of great players (that they sell).

    If you ever come to Portugal sent me a PM, maybe we can watch a game live if it´s football season, I´d be glad to show you around.

    Follow every team Mourinho manage and Zlatan. Sometimes I like to follow the teams Pep manage too just to know in what way I can throw shit at him.
