Moving Abroad and Following a New Team
I've spent this summer in Valencia, with a view to moving here in a year or two's time. I don't particularly want to pay money to watch Zaza again, but I wonder if I'd enjoy regular weekend football out here too.

Has anyone moved abroad and taken an interest in a local club? Can it fill the gap or not worth the money trying?

They're still the big two but Cristal are challenging them. The PFA keep changing the format of the league to keep people interested. Our local team won it a few years back but they've gone to pot now.

Haha.

Who are the top team over there now? When I was over it was Universitario v alianza lima, my father in law is a big la u fan.

Re: Moving Abroad and Following a New Team
Years ago I moved to Luton (well that's like being abroad) when Luton Town were doing well in the old First Division, and West Ham had just been relegated. I told my mind that my team would now be Luton, but my heart said No.

Sadly, they changed their name.

There may still be a five-a-side team still wearing the kit in Leyton as a mate got me to bring some shirts over once.

Watch our local team, Juan Aurich (Peru), when possible but that's just to see a live game. No substitute.

Each to their own but this amazes me. I'd have been down there like a ferret.

Re: Moving Abroad and Following a New Team
Moved to Palma for a couple of years back in the late 90s, although 10 mins away just couldn't get the enthusiasm to drag myself down to RCD Mallorca even though tickets were cheap and easy to get and they were flying at the time, beat Chelsea there in Europe, reached Copa del Rey final and UEFA Cup Winners' Cup final, then came third in the Primera Liga in 1998/99 2 points behind second placed Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Nothing interests me other than the IRONS.

Florence is my dream! What were you doing there?

Re: Moving Abroad and Following a New Team
Lived in Florence while they had Batistusta and Rui Costa. Went to most home games, loved it and still follow them now. It's possible to be West Ham and take an interest in clubs from other leagues.

Re: Moving Abroad and Following a New Team
I've lived in Italy,USA and Australia When I lived in Rome I watched some Lazio and Roma games both horrible fans reminded me of Millwall and Tottenham just dirty looking slimy cunts. In Perth I watched Perth Glory tried to watch them but dead atmosphere. In America for a while and liked Portland great atmosphere quite hipster though.

That Sampdoria team was a particularly ugly team in a particularly ugly league.

Re: Moving Abroad and Following a New Team
I lived in Genoa, Italy in the mid-eighties when Souness and Francis played for Sampdoria. I never really took to the team.

Moved to Bochum, Germany in 1987 and fell in love with Borussia Dortmund. Paul Lambert played for them during this time. Still look for their results today. A proper football club.

Moved to the U.S. in 1994 and have watched a few MLS games, very physical. No team holds on to the ball for longer than three passes.

Watched a few college games around where we live: UC Berkeley and St. Marys. Guys with tree trunk legs crashing into each other being substituted all time. Teams lack a vision, formation and technical skills.

Can't wait to get over and see my Irons this year with my son.

Re: Moving Abroad and Following a New Team
I take my lad to watch a DC United game each year, before our London/Euro trip. This saturday we are watching Toronto FC play DCU.

Last year it was DCU against Portland Timbers. Complete and utter shite. One guy crossed the ball from 5 yards short of the the goal line and it didn't bounce before it went out for a throw on the other side.

The only upside is sitting on the Hispanic side, which is loud and raucous.....no reason since DCU are bottom, Toronto top. Could be a bloodbath.

Re: Moving Abroad and Following a New Team
Nope - in 10 years of living and travelling abroad, I've attended one match - Melbourne v Sydney. Was absolutely shite, think the star player was a 40 year old John Aloisi, think even Kevin Muscat was still getting a game.

Come Saturdays I'll always be watching West Ham and would rather be in a boozer casting a cursory glance towards the TV if one of the local teams are on. Couldn't even really be bothered in Lisbon when Benfica were playing Porto, was the closest I've come to caring about a foreign league though.

Re: Moving Abroad and Following a New Team
I moved to Stockholm in 1989, tried going to the local big teams in the Capital A.I.K, Djurgården and Hammarby, could never get into it.. crappy football.

Did enjoy seeing AIK in the Champions League in 1999, they got a good group, Fiorentina, Arsenal and Barcelona..

Not even socialising with a few Brits Apoel have had over the years all referred to me as the ''West Ham Bloke''

Re: Moving Abroad and Following a New Team
Live about 100 metres from the Clubhouse of Apoel Nicosia even trained with them when I was younger.Always go to watch them in thier numerous European ventures.Only other claim to fame for them is they turned Sakho down before joining us.Absolute mayhem here when they win the League or Cup normally fireworks all night.
