Everyone knows soccer. It’s easily the most popular sport in the world. Here are some nice quotes to go along with the beautiful game.
If this can be termed the century of the common man, then soccer, of all sports, is surely his game…. In a world haunted by the hydrogen and napalm bomb, the football field is a place where sanity and hope are still left unmolested. -Stanley Rous
In Latin America the border between soccer and politics is vague. There is a long list of governments that have fallen or been overthrown after the defeat of the national team. -Luis Suarez
Soccer is not about justice. It’s a drama – and criminally wrong decisions against you are part and parcel of that. -Pete Davies
The goalkeeper is the jewel in the crown and getting at him should be almost impossible. It’s the biggest sin in football to make him do any work. -George Graham
The rules of soccer are very simple, basically it is this: if it moves, kick it. If it doesn’t move, kick it until it does. -Phil Woosnam
The rest of the world loves soccer. Surely we must be missing something. Uh, isn’t that what the Russians told us about communism? There’s a good reason why you don’t care about soccer – it’s because you are an American and hating soccer is more American than mom’s apple pie, driving a pick-up and spending Saturday afternoon channel-surfing with the remote control. -Tom Weir
All that proves is that most of the world is too poor to build bowling alleys, golf courses, tennis courts and baseball fields. There’s hundreds of millions of poor people out there who still ain’t got indoor plumbing, but that don’t mean there’s something great about an outhouse. Soccer is boring. I’ve never seen a more boring sport. -Mike Royko
soccer is an art.
