    Lol, then why make the post

    I can't put myself in the position of a dedicated soccer fan, but from the outside I find it a bit odd that someone would choose club over country. But then again as I said, I'm not in the position because I'm not a huge soccer fan who loves a club as much as say I love the Richmond footy club in AFL.

    Better comparison might be from the league boys with State of Origin. I dunno which they'd prefer out of a Premiership or an Origin series for NSW/QLD.

    If you follow your club home & away, it makes more sense to be pasionate about them than a bunch of no-mark millionaires who quite frankly probably wouldn't piss on you if you were on fire

    I honestly reckon they're more passionate about State of Origin, but it'd be interesting to see what they say.

    Can't we have both?

    Then again I have no real problem if Manly players don't get selected for State of Orgin. One cus we don't have any real standout players and most guys from either Queensland or NSW can do a similar jobs. Two because so often teams with large state of orgin players have a month or two were they do nothing.

    So yeah i guess Manly over NSW overall.

    Also Sydney FC > Australia. I'm so over Milligan and Zadkovich missing half of Sydney FC games to play for the Under 23s and now Casey is making the squad as well. Man as soon as Timpano is fit we will have four players missing every 2nd game to play U23s.

    I'd take Australia winning the WC over Man City winning the Prem, but ****, I'd take either one pretty happily.

    (I realise they're different countries stfu)

    Would say both are unlikely, but Citeh winning the Prem is far more likely than Oz winning the world cup. Yer Chavs have shown that if you have a decent manager (which Svennis is, at club level at least) & a chairman with a large enough bottomless pit you can win the big one.

    Plus there are four Premier League titles to each world cup, only 20 teams competing & City are likely to be in the top flight for some time to come. In the WC there're 32 teams & they've qualified twice ever.

    That's pretty thin.

    Never, obviously, but they've won the old Div One more recently than the Chavs had before Uncle Roman rolled up.

    1968, in fact. Though admittedly we were leading going into the last day and rested a lot of players due to the European Cup final.

    That's what i was getting at. Was wondering if they've won it since 1966.
