I've never liked football, as one friend recently remarked, 'where's the fun in watching 22 millionaires chasing a ball round a field'!" As a teen I went to watch Arsenal play a live game in an effort to find something interesting in it. So bored by half time I went for a wander around London shops instead and met the coach back home to Peterborough/ Stamford in time.
Still, each to his own!

Allez les bleus!!! :number1:
I'm only joking, I've no interest in watching those millionaires in shorts...
Lol ... The players have nothing to do with it, it is the patrons (some, mécène in french) who instead of bet on the horses or the works of art, put now on the stars of football.
... I'm not interested in those millionaires in shorts too, and I mostly see these matches like a nice show ...

Well the referees do not chase the ball, so technicallyyyyyyy..

Yes 11 a side. 10 per team running after the ball and one goalie ;)
