'Beautiful Game'? Players fighting and fouling. Fans hurling bottles and abuse before spilling out into the host town to inflict drunken violence on its citizens. Grown men and women reduced to whimpering imbeciles because the other side put a ball in the back of their net. It might have been a 'beautiful game' once, now it's just a tedious, over-hyped farce. If you've finally grown sick and tired of having this rubbish shoved down your throat week in, week out, vote NO!!

They may play this sport virtually all over the world, but nothing beats the spirit & atmosphere of the English game... particularly F.A. Cup final day... until they knocked down the PROPER Wembley stadium.

Football is of course an icon . It is so very English. The Glory of Manchester United Football Club shines in the history of English football. Bobby Charlton, David Beckham , Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scouls and many many others are the Stars in the Football Sky. Glory Glory ManUnited

Football is the nearest we have to a true world game, but like most other major sports it has its origins in England. Created in the 1860s when the laws of the game were first generally agreed, the first Cup Final Competion - the FA Cup - was held in England and the first league formed in England. The first international match - between England and Scotland - was arranged by an Englishman. Just as cricket is the quintessential English summer game, so football is the quintessential English winter game.

Football is so ubiquitous around the world, almost every single country would probably suggest "football" as their icon. And the fact that the modern game has become nothing more than the massaging of egos, the exploitation of fans, a vehicle for advertising and proponent of greed...

What is it about football that arouses such passion.Bloody noses-broken limbs-bruises, and thats just the fans. It can't be that exciting as it would appear you have to be drunk to enjoy it.
