Football or Soccer? What do you call it?

Football_iu_1996.jpg

A fellow community member who shall not be named thinks that Soccer is the prefered term of the world.

I beg to differ.

Use the poll to vote. :D

There's a reason clubs have "FC" after their name... MUFC = Manchester United Football Club.

Oh and... FOOTball is played with you feet.

Well, I'm American, and I will forever associate "football" with American football, or handegg. Sure, football fits "soccer" better, but I've been around this handegg sport so long that I can never see it as anything other than American football. So I'm gonna have to go with soccer, sadly.

Football of course.

And its funny the name soccer was invented in oxford when the snobs wanted to call it "association football" but ofcourse that is long and stupid so they shortened it to Soccer ofcourse the name never stuck in England and stayed as Football.

So little lesson for you there Americans Both British names but the true name stuck!!

It doesn't really matter but here in the UK within "actual" football circles (fans, mobs, schools etc), you could be beaten severly for calling it soccer.

In the UK its footy. I understand why yanks call it soccer tho.
