I am surprised to see so much interest in Argentine clubs. I was really into it when I had Goltv but once BeIn bumped Gol from the tv listings it was difficult to keep up. Do you guys watch it regularly via streams or just follow the results / table?

A few years ago Argentina's sports channel, TyC, couldn't come up with the money for the TV rights and so the government bought them. They put all the games on public TV for free, which is nice (before, about half the games were on another TyC channel that only came with pricier cable packages). So now they stream all of the games on the net for free as well, and at good quality.

Pleasantly surprised at how popular the Argentine league is here. It's quite underrated IMO. There's a perception that the Brazilian league is better but I think that's just a stereotype. Historically, Argentine teams have always dominated Brazilian teams, and while that trend started to reverse around ten fifteen years ago, in the past couple seasons the Brazilian league has been declining. They had no teams in the Libertadores semi-finals last year and only one team this year. Their only good team last year, Cruzeiro, sold its best players to European teams. Right now the three best teams in the Americas are Argentine (Boca, River, and San Lorenzo surely), but a lot of Americans think Liga MX is better for whatever reason. Sure the league loses its top thirty players or so to Europe, but the rest of the players are the rank and file that make up any other league (surely no worse than their English and Italian counterparts playing at mid and low table teams there), and of course the top players from other South American leagues help replace some of the talent that is exported. The mid and low table teams are no worse than the mid to low table teams in Serie A, Ligue 1, or even some of the big three. And much better than what you see in the Eredevisie or Liga Sagres.

Favorite Club Team: Liverpool

I love the Montreal Impact as my family and I were there for five and half wonderful years! We left the year before they moved up to MLS.

My favorite league, hmm, that is a tough call. I like the Bundesliga, EPL, Eridivise, and La Liga.

Question: are we not all USMNT nuts if we are on this website? LOL
