English football has lost something - its easy and trite to say "its lost its soul" but that's as good a description as any. Its became a playground for multi-millionaires who make sure they don't injure each other and don't really care by and large if they win or lose. Very few games now have real passion - the "derbys" are a bit of a joke.

 Its became the opposite of what English football used to be all about

The derby's are good, just not the big ones.

It does seem a bit more friendly and upmarket doesn't it.

No maniac's with effigies and pro ira horseshit   

I 100% prefer football with effigies and their IRA shite than friendly rugby

I put it on in the background or on the other TV while I play playstation.

Rarely sit right tuned into a game.

True. If all football fans were to become prawn sandwichers and sanitized rivalries it would be the final nail in the coffin.

Used to watch it all. Football Italia on channel 4 in the 90's. European football. International football. Obscure Taliban Premiership football where the matchball is a severed head (only joking, forgive me)

Now, the wages and transfer fees makes my blood boil. We regularly lose out on players to fucking English Championship teams, its grim how an absolute no mark tin pot club can pay 10 times what we can.

Then there's those ads with the epic music playing hyping the shite out of the big Burnley vs Stoke game:megaanguish:

I watch Rangers and Rangers only nowadays. No Sky Sports either anymore.

Anyone done a similar turnaround?

Been Rangers and international tournaments only  (not qualifiers) for a few years now. Can't even sit through motd these days.

The EPL is boring and so is the Champions League; I haven't watched a full game for a couple of years now, only highlight if I can be bothered. Rangers is the only game I go out my way to watch.

The money in the game now is out of control south of the boarder and get the points of many posts above, but I still watch a fair bit of English football some games are good some are shite.

It is down to each of us to watch what we want and pay for it, at least with Virgin if you pay for Sky you get BT along with it, and Rangers away games are on a lot on both which is good IMO.

Used to watch absolutely everything, now only Rangers and Chelsea. Can't even sit through an episode of MOTD. I've actually grown to hate the sport of football the last 5/6 years.

It's not even just England, Barca spending 100+ million, on Coutinho. Embarrassing

Yes I should have not just said England, some in France and Spain are just as bad.

Taking Rangers out of the equation. Football isn't in my top 5 most watched sports. 10yrs ago, I'd watch 4-5 games a week.

I have grown to actively dislike the sport over the past few years - I never watch it. I do worry that I will eventually drift away completely from football, having little more than a passing interest in Rangers.

The game has lost its soul.

Apart from Rangers I still watch quite a lot of English and Spanish football,I'll be watching at least three European games this week as well.

I still watch plenty of football, passes the time and there's still no other sport I'd prefer

Used to live and work in England years ago and went to watch the team in BLUE in Chelsea,Man City,Coventry and Luton who played in Orange.
Did manage back up the road to watch our games during that time.
Have had Sky since day one and would watch loadsa games.
Although I still have Sky,my interest probably extends to Rangers games.

Only Rangers for me tbh, ill occasionally tune in if a game is on and I'm bored/peaked my interest but generally don't give a fuck. Don't even watch MOTD or fuck all. 

That Spurs/Arsenal game on Saturday summed up English football. Shit tae watch, no atmosphere, no fuck all. Shite.

I'm the same. I was Football daft and would watch everything that was on. But now I just watch Rangers games and occasionally the Premier League. I haven't watched a Serie A, Bundesliga or La Liga match in ages!!!
