    Nice gif ! :tup::)
    Never thought that Cardiff could strike back after Dzeko scored for City.
    Amazing and impressive atmosphere.
    But unfortunately the nickname "Bluebirds" doesnt fit anymore since their Owner changed their team colours into red last summer.:rolleyes:
    Anyway - great match !
    Any predictions for tomorrow PackerFan71 ?

    Thanks found a few different ones.
    They are still the Bluebirds if i was a fan id still wear blue.
    Id take a draw right now of any type, ManU don't have Sir Alec anymore but their attack is very good.

    Agree, while watching the game I saw many fans still wearing blue shirts....

    A draw sounds very likely to me, both teams will need more time to find their rythm.
    I hope they air it on TV so that I can watch.... ;)

    Edit: Hilarious signature, PackerFan71. Did they chant it in Wembley two weeks ago ? :D

    Ha yeah thats where i got it from, sometimes too much political correctness at Football.
    Louder than them on their own patch. [​IMG]



    In contrast with this one where the sporting rivalry is a little more friendly, (yes i know its them.) But couldn't find any Germany clips, been a while since we played. ;)

    Nice videos, the Dutch always bring a lot of fans with them. Thats indeed impressive.
    But to me Scottish and Irish fans are on the top, its a shame that they dont have National teams that match these outstanding fans ! ;)
    German fans are not even close to that level of support though we arent bad.
    Nice pictures and video as well:

    Yeah our team is not that good at the moment, but our fans are world class. Notice the lack of violence or aggro. Nice pictures on the link. [​IMG]

    That makes them special and is something you and your fellow Scots can be very proud of ! :tup::)
    I just love their passion though they wont win anything in the near future.
    I wonder when we met the Scottish National team for the last time....?
    Edit: Just found out - 2003 :rolleyes:

    Just as well for us its not about winning silverware, i watched that game wee Berti was the coach. The first game was 1-1 both competitive games. We should have made it 2-2. :)

    That would be cool you'd get a good game. [​IMG]

    Here in the states, the fans haven't caught on to how to really get into the game with the team for some reason. You don't hear much singing or chanting, unless it's a national game then the worn out and arrogant "USA USA USA" come out. I wish our MLS team fans would take a page out of your books and start really having fun together at a game. But that is just the problem, I think. Americans are too individualistic. I think the fans in Seattle are catching on, but that's about the only MLS fans so far that are even a shadow of what you have in Europe. Some of my best fun watching your games is listening to the songs and chants of the fans in the background. That's just plain fun.

    It will take some more time to develop a football (soccer) culture, Croak.
    Its still a pretty young sport in the US compared to the history of the game here in Europe.
    And when talking about chants of fans and as said before - British fans are second to none !

    That would explain the inflatable champagne bottles ;)
    Quite popular in our stadiums as well - one stand starts with the chant, the other stands answer like an echo.
    I dont know an english word for it, the translation of the German word we use would be "antiphonies" but Im pretty sure there must be another word for it that I dont know, sorry. :oops:

    I like that kind of singing very cool, its a newish thing to the fans here introduced by the Ultra wannabe types. I'm sure there's a term for it in english.

    Thanks to the elbow of Mr. van Persie :mad:

    Yeah, most of the game takes place around the halfway-line. Both defences without any mistakes so far...

    Roll on the second half no way can it be as bad, Chelsea need to put Lukaku on at some point.
