    Not enjoyable for me.... to be frank most of this season hasn't been enjoyable for me. Only Liverpool humiliate Man U and beat City but lose to Brighton a bunch of times and embarrass themselves against Bournemouth

    Child molester? Traitor? Nazi? Something along those lines, clearly.

    My only source of sporting joy nowadays are my 3rd team, NYCFC, who generally have their shit together, excellent scouting network, play an attractive, attacking style, and actually win trophies. And express a connection with New York City itself that you often don't see in other teams, especially US ones.

    I follow a Japanese team who are shit... they were winning 1-0 in the 107th minute the other day and lost. It's hysterical to think that's even possible when the game only went in to the 109th minute.

    My Japanese baseball team have won the title once in 85 years, with only 12 teams in the league you'd have to think even by dumb luck they'd have won one more. 2 years ago best record in the league, only needed to win one game in the playoffs to advance to the next round (it was a weird set up because of covid) and still lost in the 1st round.

    Well.... at least you have Liverpool. Not great this year obviously (although would not be surprised at all if they nick 4th) but generally a club with a winning tradition

    Yeah being a Mets, Jet, and Devils fan not a lot of good times recently. I did have the last few years for the Reds though so as disappointing as this season has been I hope it's just a blip and we'll be back next season

    I grew up in Jersey so Devils were natural but my dad had season tickets for the Jets so that was easy and the Mets, well my Sicilian grandmother basically threatened me with putting a hit out me on if I rooted for the Yankees or Dodgers

    Imagine being a Chelsea fan and having your mad US owner blowing over £600 million on players and still not having a decent striker on the team.:D

    I’m ready to be hurt again

    From what I’ve heard and read, I love him already and hope the club gives him time. Because there needs to be substantial squad turnover. Probably should sell Kane for gazillions and get the GK and CB to anchor the next gen.

    Sweden's goalie was by far the star of the game, could have easily been 2-0 or better at end of regular time
