There are no goals in football, subby. They're called "touchdowns"

And they're worth 6 points, not 1.

I think you're confusing football with American Rugby.

"1 game fewer"

Actually

"1 match fewer"

Messi is brilliant and has incredible skill.

Stoke is a shiathole and have Tony Pulis.

Nope.

Rugby is rugby, football is football, and soccer is the dessicated remains of the once great sport that was the ancestor of all three.

The original game had one rule: no suckerpunches. That's a man's sport.

Meh 1/10.

You can call it football when you use your feet and have more than 12 minutes of actual game being played.

So subby is saying that Stoke City has a shot!

/has there ever been a 16 goal team?
//I'm imagining something like Tuvalu vs France in a qualifier match
///Tuvalu's goalkeeper being an overturned clothes hamper or scarecrow or something

Well duh!

They still have one game left!

You know, I debated that. Dammit. Also for further perspective, each team has 2 games left by my count. I wonder if Vegas gave odds who would they put as the favorite in that situation for most goals in the next two games.

The majority of a football match has players who are walking or standing around on the pitch. Hockey is about the only sport in the world with continuous "action," and the sport requires line changes due to the pace.

Please use a more realistic insult, like "all the line guys are fat" or something.

How about "at any one time in an NFL game the QB is the only one out of the 22 players on the field that is required to have any technical abililty greater than being able to catch a ball, and any eight year old can catch a farking ball?"

An 8 year old trying to catch NFL passes sounds like prop comedy gone horribly wrong.
