Alright, so I am a diehard Nuggets fan, moderate Broncos fan, moderate Rockies fan and recently decided to give soccer/footy a shot. I was talking with a buddy of mine who is a HUGE Liverpool fan this morning and he convinced me to get into the game. I found that he is 10 times more passionate about the sport than most American sports fans, so it sounded like a lot of fun. So, here are my thoughts:
I know that the Rapids won the MLS cup last year, I live in Colorado, love every other team here (except the Avs...hockey doesn't do it for me), so I'll jump on the Rapids bandwagon. Sort of a no brainer here. I'd love to get an idiots guide to the Rapids here. Who should I watch for? What style of play should I expect? Can we repeat this year? When does Tony Meola get in the game (for that matter, Cobi Jones)?
Secondly, I'm thinking of following a Champions league team. My buddy suggested Aresenal (the Nuggets-Kroenke connection). He proceeded to tell me some things about the beautiful style of play, fiscally smart, coaching style, how the suck on D, how they need an enforcer, etc. Is this wise? Anyone here have any other suggestions?
I love watching the world cup and Olympics, so I get the sport fairly well. I would just love to hear your thoughts.
