My father is a big football [US: soccer] fan, and I grew up watching games with him. I found the atmosphere exhilarating and the enthusiasm was contagious. But I think that there's too much money in football [US: soccer]. The big clubs have forgotten that they exist thanks to their supporters, which is a shame. I also don't like some football [US:soccer] supporters who can be violent or even racist. I think that they spoil an interesting sport that should embody solidarity and teamwork.
