I miss the World Cup so much, for the all the fury that it made me experience for a month straight, it also sent me into great highs of pathetic happiness for a few hours a day and I just
want another taste of that serotonin
I even find myself smiling when I think about that stuff that recently sent me into infuriated tears, time really does ~~~~heal all sports-related psychological wounds except once that debilitate an entire career prematurely but ⊙ω⊙ that’s another conversation
I really want to start a futbol posse so bad irl tho I should post fliers around Northeast LA/the valley and we can all pick which player we want to roleplay like the Spice Girls except no one wants to be Ginger Spice/Luis Suarez and I won’t force them this time because I have a much more refined sense of justice as an adult
have you ever thought to yourself “haha I doubt there’s fanfic for that” and, because you knew it would be hilarious if there was, you search in every crevice of the internet known to you only to come up with this little hints and mini arrows pointing you in different directions with links until finally
you stumble upon the jackpot
where all of the fanfic for this very niche thing you’re into exists
and you’ve been keeping this treasure in your second tab for the past 3 hours wondering when you’re actually going to sift through it but you can’t get rid of the giddy sense of wonderment that you’re surprised you even found it at all
My mom and I were walking our bernese mountain dog, Clint, around the neighborhood talking about the inherent awful nature in most dudes when I stop to look up and on the horizon point I see a giant white dog walking towards us happily about two blocks away. I tell my mom this as an offhand comment, more as an interesting tidbit than as a warning, when without me even getting another word out I find the weight of all of us collectively sprinting back to my moms house and as we’re running and I’m looking at her like “????!?????” my mom is telling me through labored breaths that she’s heard the legends about this 100lb dog that walks itself around the neighborhood without a leash and without its owner and she’s always gotten the feeling Clint and this dog wouldn’t like each other so we’re better off getting the fuck out of here now
Very much a “if I catch you in these streets” situation but. dogs
As a quick very, very general guide for that anon: The Spanish League is known for very elegant, technical football. The Premier League for more of a rough contact, faster style. The Italian League is a bit slower paced and tactical. And the German League known for their intelligent yet physical style. Choosing a League really depends on what aspects of the game you enjoy most.
Do you or your bf have any tips on how to get into club football?
He says this: there’s 3 leagues you can try
The Spanish League - “La Liga” (Just about every Latin American star you enjoyed in the world is probably either in Real Madrid or Barcelona so you can witness their glory in the regular season)
The German League - Bayern Munich is considered the German Real Madrid; a large portion of players from the German and Netherland NT are in this league
The English Premier League - Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool
The Italian League - AC Milan, S.S.C Napoli, Serie A
Chris doesn’t know exactly what sites will work for you via your country, but he states that BBC Sports often shows it, but there are streams for these sorts of things ALWAYS, as long as you pick a league that you like, you can dip into the “fandom” either through Tumblr or Twitter and I’m sure a buddy will hook you up with a link to a stream
Think of a few players who you really adored in the World Cup, find the league they generally belong to, and go from there! I really like Messi, Neymar and Dani Alves, and they all happen to belong to Barcelona, so I’m going to try to get into that and see where it goes. I’m also interested in Bayern after witnessing our reigning World Cup champs plow through everyone in the knock out rounds, so I’ll make it a point to check them out, too.
you know i'd really think you'd enjoy club football. its not on as grand a scale as "the world" but most league's out there are just as dramatic, intense and beautiful. (with the exception of the u.s. of course lol)
I’m definitely going to get into it! My bf is an ~expert~~~ at the leagues so it’ll be good to have his in-person-wikipedia knowledge when I watch
