    Ren means to pick winners. If you mean to pick a lineup of 11 and play, I'd be in.

    FORZA ITALIA!

    You can pick winners, top goal scorers and top goal tenders. It doesn't have to be a full 11 lineup.

    Yup ... 10 + a goalie, there's even positions calls fullback and halfback and wing back depending on the formation you're running and the local terminology. The positions in which the 10 play are up to the coach. You essentially could play 10 forwards and no midfielders or defense. It wouldn't be effective, but you could.

    Soccer is pretty good man.

    It would catch on here bigtime if people knee what was going on.

    It may very well suck for you but not for many. ;)

    "The FIFA World Cup is the largest and most lucrative sporting event in the world. The 2006 tournament, with 64 matches featuring 32 nations and television coverage in 214 countries, had a cumulative television audience of 26 billion people. The final between defending champions Italy and France was watched by 700 million viewers".

    never ever call it soccer usually, you guys play american football as far as i'm concerned not football, but its easier to just avoid calling it its proper name on this site. less responses like burm and r2a that way

    Well it has kind of snuck up on people this year. I don't know, maybe its me....but I just haven't noticed much fanfare in the US....this go around. Not that there has been a lot in the past....

    As someone who has actually held the FIFA trophy in my hands, I'm sad to say that I no longer care about soccer....football. It was once a great sport, but IMO, it no longer is.
