    How much football do you watch?

    I have never been able to follow a lot of football because, to pit it simply, there are too many teams and leagues. I do tend to see the major competitions like the World Cup and Euro.

    As a football fan, how muc do you follow and know about the games, players of each team etc.

    Like for cricket, we can say we know most of the players playing international players as far as their skills etc are concerned...

    Which leagues, team, how many games do you tend to watch round the year?

    Several games a week on fox sports. Apparently SBS are aiming to get Serie A coverage instead of the EPL, which is good.

    For football information, I visit the official club websites, football websites, and the BBC.

    well fox wont let them show epl games anymore, IMO they r better off going for a league they could get cheaper like dutch or france, italy will come at a hefty price, one i dont think SBS can afford....

    They usually show highlights of the French, Dutch, and Portugese leagues on The World Game.

    They are also gunning for coverage of La Liga.

    I don't think SBS are completely poor, after all they were able to afford coverage of the Olympics.

    I watch about 2 minutes total of football (soccer) a year. I'm taking into account when I walk past the Pig 'n' Whistle in the Queen Street Mall or when I'm flicking channels.

    Every Exeter home game if I'm in the South West, every competitive England International.

    And then a lot of highlights. I struggle to really watch with total attention if I'm not supporting a side 110%, though.

    Any that's on really, as long as it doesn't clash with a Cricket match at the same time.

    Get down to the Latics when i'm not playing, watch super Sunday and the champions league, real if they are playing - wouldn't watch seria A if you paid me though! (unless i needed some sleep)

    Norwegian league I watch every game with BodÝ/Glimt in it, and sometimes other teams. I watch most Norwegian internationals (though not Hong Kong friendlies...), and also CL play-off matches and Euro/World Cup finals. Can watch the EPL if I want to, but don't usually.

    Think that's about it...

    A couple of Plymouth Argyle matches a year.. Unfortunatly Saturday afternoon cricket has completely stopped me doing it, and surfing as well...

    If I play any sunday cricket and get my driving license i hope to go more often...
