Football teams

Hey for those among us who are football fans I was simply curious who supports what time in Swiss or international football.
I support my local club - FC Basel 1893.
International i like - Arsenal

How about the rest of you

Re: Football teams

Locally: Xamax (though recent events are leading me to reconsider that ).
In England: Watford, which is where I grew up.

OP... if you're in Solothurn, surely your local club is Biel or YB, not Basel... or are you from Basel originally ?

Re: Football teams

Crystal Palace...is there any other team? When I'm rich enough I will buy them and get them into the Champions League.

I was born in Basel and lived there, thats where my fathers family is from i've been raised worshiping red and blue. I only support successful clubs
I would certainly reconsider Xamax if I were you.

Re: Football teams

Local? Would have to YB, as I work about 50m from Stade de Suisse
My real team? The mighty Liverpool since I was about 4 or 5. YNWA

Re: Football teams

FCB by marriage. If that counts?
The game last Sunday was not great, the Champions League campaign will be short on the basis of what was on display.

Re: Football teams

The game did not go as well as it could have done, but Basel still have time to improve. There was a good link up between midfield and attack. But Shaqiri really could have done better, but the future is in Pak.
Lets hope basel get a good group in the champions league, were a team known to shock people.

Re: Football teams

Luzern looked like a decent team against Xamax the other weekend... expect to see them finish in the top half of the table.
