    Just got thinking about this noticing the CL thread bumped last night and tonight. I have zero interest in the CL nowadays, and can’t remember the last time I watched 90 mins of a non-Celtic game. Don’t even do MOTD anymore. Switch right off when people start talking EPL :32:

    Used to be mad for the football when I was younger, playing and watching as much as I could whenever I could. Changed days. Celtic games still watched religiously though, cue the mrs saying “they can’t be playing again?!”

    What about you?

    Ticked 1 or 2..

    Genuinely find it hard to watch a match that doesn’t involve The Sporting Wing Of The IRA Popes 11.

    Love going to watch the * fitbaw on a Saturday afternoon.

    Always watch Celtic and Barca games, so can be anything from 2 to 4 games a week.

    I’m the exact same as you, used to watch all and any matches when I was between 12-18 since then I only watch Celtic games and most Scotland matches. Of course at the World Cup I watched more but even the last euros I never really payed attention to

    I have no interest in the CL or EPL, or any of the big football. The sooner the top six in the big five all * off and form a superleague the better.
    I think the last EPL game I watched was last season, and I was at it. The last CL game I watched Celtic played in. I don't even bother with the final.

    I go to football local to where I live and follow the English lower leagues and non-leagues, the Scottish Premiership(not just Celtic) and the League of Ireland. I still love international football. The rest can all * off.

    Watch a fair bit but a game is often on in the background while I do other things.

    Watch every minute of every Celtic game. If given the option will always watch Barcelona to see Messi play as well. Truth be told I’d watch Argentina just to see him as well.

    Other than that it’s on in the background, MOTD included. I find the Premiership soulless and boring, from the actual game to the commentary to the tourists in the stands. Liverpool/City was the only game I’ve watched the last few years I’ve taken any enjoyment from and that’s only because Klopp and Pep both set their teams out to play attacking football.

    Less and less as time goes on. Outside of us I used to watch a fair bit of CL, La Liga, English premiership, world cups and Euros of they were on. Now if doesn't involve Celtic I have pretty much zero interest in it.

    Paul is Mikey and Minty is Thommo.

    Watch almost every Celtic game, and aside from that I’ll watch Champions League games and Ireland games.

    Between those and playing games myself, that’s plenty football for me. Not as obsessed as I was when I was younger.

    It's getting less and less but I'll watch anything that's on when I'm at home. Celtic games are a given but I'll watch some £PL games if it's top 6 teams or a derby. Match of the day is an easier watch as most of the games in full are * atmosphere so bored me to tears.

    Prefer watching bundesliga now it's on BT, better standard and far better atmosphere.
    CL is my favourite competition though, especially if we qualify.

    Used to watch loads, that changed when Sky stopped showing la liga and revista.

    Will watch our games and an EPL march at 5:30 on Saturdays with my mates in the pub if its a good one.

    I watch every Celtic game & most Scottish games that are on tele.

    I’ve watched the Champions League the past two nights but can’t remember watching any group stage games.

    I keep up to date on what’s happening in every league but don’t watch them often. Only really watch the big games like El Classico, Bayern v Dortmund, Liverpool v City, Inter v Milan etc - games that usually have something riding on them.

    Same as most. All or as much of our games. Usually football on in the back ground, but very rarely watch it. MOTD is more tolerable as it gives the decent bits and ditches the hours of numbness.
