    I go through times were i will watch loads of football but then realise most of it is * & start sticking to Celtic & Scotland.

    Too many teams out there play * football that doesn't entertain fans. This isn't just in Scotland as most the EPL games & CL games are just teams trying to shut each other out.

    Every Celtic and Scotland game.

    Been getting back in to watching ‘Super Sunday’ since this all started.

    No interest in the CL group stage, the same usual suspects will walk their groups each time. Will get into it for the knockout stage.

    I have little to no interest in football outside of Celtic and Ireland.

    That wasn't always the case, but I suspect the contemporary oversaturated, wall-to-wall coverage of practically every kick in Europe has taken away the 'treat' factor of watching football for me. Not to mention the obscene amounts of money, flashy sponsorships, TV deals and the general Americanisation of the game have made it almost unpalatable to me.

    Celtic games first and foremost.

    But I like to watch the Bundesliga, Spanish, Italian, French and the likes, as long as it doesn't clash with our games. I enjoy football in these leagues. Watch the occasional EPL fixture. Wouldn't bother my * with teams like Burnley v Brighton or the likes.

    Will be watching Milan v Juve tonight

    Celtic, Scotland and Hanwell Town (local non league team). I used to watch loads, now I don't even watch the world cup.

    Used to watch a lot but these days it's pretty much just Celtic.

    Will catch the odd Ireland/Scotland game but that's about it.

    TV money has in the main ruined football as a spectacle IMO. 90s/00s Euro Football used to be a brilliant watch, these days it's boring as *.

    Every Celtic game I can. Scotlands important matches. And just the occasional English, Spanish or European game.

    Every Celtic game, obviously.
    As many Barca games as I can manage - though unlike Celtic, if I am busy, so be it.

    Will watch Spanish football as a whole, regardless who is playing.
    German football if I am struggling.

    Italian, French and Dutch on the odd ocassion.
    Scottish football, hard to find a game that doesn't have either us or the huns on it anyway.

    Went for 3-5 games a week, is probably average, though it can fluctuate.

    World cup and Euros, I'll watch as much as time allows.

    I'll watch Celtic if they are on. But watching the empty stadiums with the fake crowd noise and zero atmosphere is just soul destroying. So I barely watch any football....and Im even struggling to watch Celtic this season.......because obviously we're pish and painful

    I used to watch a lot of EPL, German and Spanish football however, I have lost interest in watching games just now as I am so pished off with what's happening with us and I feel as if I am in some sort of footballing wilderness just now.

    Just Celtic now.

    used to watch other scottish games and english games and european games but si many of them are boring as * and i have better things to do with my life. european football got real boring real quick when its constanstly the same 8 teams in the quarter finals of the champions league every year.

    bring back the old days where anyone can play anyone and if group a is barcelona, psg, bayern munich and juventus then tough *. but nope all this coefficient bullshit protects them for each other and as such it * boring.

    Don't watch many games now tbh, will watch Scotland and Celtic, although recently not bothering much trying to find streams, as couldn't be arsed and had actually stopped watching Celtic games for a wee bit.

    But felt a bit rotten for my Da if it was on tele and asking if I was coming round for it, and decided recently I'll come round when they're on TV.

    Only really make the effort for Celtic games and Scotland
    Try to watch the big like matches in Spain and Italy and down south but find half the English so call called big build up matches over rated and basically built up by the papers and pundits, relegation battles are usually better as that's proper commitment igbtjng for the cause which I like but don't mind if I'm to busy and miss them.

    Used to watch only Celtic games but have been watching every Atalanta match this season. Also watched a few other games to see a better quality than what we are playing.
