You know there is an expression called "dusting off an old thread"? Well, I think we can call this one "digging it out with an excavator"...
So yeah, I was browsing through the TV channels and noticed that MLS was back on today. With that in mind, I figured that maybe it was time to bring back a soccer thread on this forum. Before starting a new thread I did a little search and turns out we already have a soccer thread. Heck, I have even posted in this thread back in my early TPR days. A lot has happened since last time this thread was active, there are many new members on this forum and soccer has become increasingly popular in the US over the years.
So yeah, any soccer fans out there? Tell us about your club, who you support and why!
As I posted back on page one back in 2005, my team is SK Brann from Bergen. Next weekend is the start of the season here in Norway, really looking forward to being back in the stadium after four months, despite my expectations for this seasons being very low. But first we have an away match 450 kilometers away which I will be attending together with probably 600-700 other away fans. If we manage to get away with a draw I'll be fairly pleased.
Below a picture of the view from my seat in our stadium, which has a capacity of 17686. I'm predicting that we'll average around 12k this season, depending a bit on how the season goes. We managed to average 10k in the league below last year, so let's see.
