You mean 30 love.The world LOVES this game?
1. First off, they don’t call it Soccer, they call it Football. An affront to the greatest game ever invented.
2. Then, they don’t play on a Soccer Field, they call it a Football Pitch. An affront to two great American sports.
3. When the score is 2-0, they don’t say Two to Zero or Two to Nothing, they say Two to Nil. Almost as bad as Tennis where they would call it 60 Love
4. They don’t know how to keep time. Every other sport runs the clock backwards so the fans and players know how much time is left. Soccer starts at 0 and runs to 45 minutes. When it reaches 45 min, is the game over? No, the refs keep a secret stoppage time and adds it to the end of the game.
And when someone commits a penalty, PENALTY KICK! More excitement and scoring is needed.They need to cut the field down to about a quarter of what it is.
Try to move it forward, kick it sideways to your teammate. They kick it back. No openings, then kick it backward and start all over again. Keep away when you're up 1 love. Boring.Men in shorts running around for an hour without ever scoring and all the while pretending they have been fouled in order to draw a flag isn't exactly my own idea of entertainment, either.
