I do find football is nowhere near as entertaining or exciting as it used to be. I never thought I would say that being footy mad since a young lad. It’s a hard to watch and enjoy a game says something when the most boring team to watch Man City are the best around. Is it me getting grumpy in my old age or does anyone else feel the game they loved is gone?

I’ll be honest I struggle to find time to watch Liverpool games let alone other teams.

Some posters seem to to watch Liverpool games more than once as well as every other game in every league in Europe.

Plus they seem to claim to watch other teams players closely as well which is mental if they are not in camera shot.

I’d imagine some wouldn’t pass a Jeremy Kyle lie detector test mind ?.

TBf I wouldn’t say it is only football - a lot of sports I used to like I’ve lost a lot of interest in, would say a bit of too technically played but also the judging / gov bodies etc are a huggge part of it for me.

Used to watch F1 but is rarely competitive and last time it was the gov body completely screwed LH (too the point think was even fired after) so stopped watching.

Similarly with boxing, countless amount of decisions by judges are baffling. Even if failed drugs test explain to me how one judge gave the Garcia fight a draw when one fighter was floored 3 times…. and that is even one of the less egregious decisions…. added to that unifications / the best fighting the best is a scarce rarity - just the best fighting someone not in top 5, so a wash. Only sport that has kept its entertainment is probably MMA - but oh well.

I'm with you JK23, but maybe a lot of posters are younger than us! Go back 7 or 8 years before I had a missus, kids and bills I was watching some absolutely ridiculous games! On top of your normal big 5 European Leagues I even remember streaming games from the Dutch, Portuguese, Serbian, Belgian and Swiss leagues!

In fact at one point I watched so much of KRC Genk I convinced myself that Gambian CB, Omar Colley was an absolute must sign for us ?.

I'm with you, JK. I only really watch us. I left the house at 10:00 yesterday morning and didn't get back till 10:00 last night. I've no desire to trawl through hours of footage of other teams and players. I'm not really interested in football, to be honest. I just love Liverpool Football Club and am extremely lucky to be be able to watch us live.

Lads it’s called getting old! Comes for us all.

It’s much more of a business these days and moves more in that direction every year.

The top businesses just want to monopolise the industry and drive all the revenue in their direction.

It would need a financial disaster or a radical fan driven revolution to change direction.

MKS, I don't know how old you are BUT as a teenager and in my early 20's, I watched a ton of Serie A, La Liga, Bundesliga cos well, I had a lot of time on my hands and staying home watching footie kept me in the house hence, not outside and well out of trouble. I even loved watching int'l games and friendlies cos back then, the players actually gave their all as well as Copa America, AFCON, WC and other int'l comps cos well, they were in the summer and when you're out of school, that's all we had/ were interested.

Right now and over the past several years with a fam and responsibility, I watch us play every game (as well as other teams depending on the game) and even watch our games back for fun or cos Im bored and nothing is on TV (don't care for Netflix and all the streaming services) while I watch the odd game from other leagues also, depending on the game. Always been a huge footie consumer for decades so I still watch as much footie as I can even tho, time and interest has indeed faded. Now, just watch highlights of these leagues and comps. for the most part.

I'd find it much more interesting if they brought back 3 o'clock kick offs, only the clubs in Europe should play on a Sunday and sack off the 12 30 games and shoot whoever thought up Monday night football awful day to play football let alone watch.

06 May 2024 12:58:18
OliRed, to be honest all I really watch now is whatever is on Sky, BBC, ITV or TNT. I'll watch any football that's on TV but my dodgy stream days are behind me, as I find the buffering and grainy picture too annoying now I'm old and grumpy. I don't even stream the Liverpool 3pm's anymore. I love football but 'unfortunately' I'm engaged now so I have to show her some attention from time to time.

Man City are not the most boring team to watch. They are a fantastic side with a lot of attacking players that score a lot of goals. If other teams can't get the ball off them or allow them to have the ball that's down to them and not a criticism of City.
We know it's hardly a level playing field, at the moment, but that doesn't mean City don't play lovely football.
I will say that I don't really enjoy watching City because they usually win. It's predictable but their kind of football isn't.

MKS, glad you are engaged now and trust me as a married guy for a many years, you're going to have to prioritize, lol. Im okay with watching footie whenever I can and my wife and kids get my full attention till the evening when I watch the games I recorded on the box hence, I don't watch LFC games live at home hence, you'll never catch me on the Live Chat, for real.

Now unlike you, Im not that old hence, not grumpy yet BUT that time will come. Stay blessed, man.

lol yup old age mate.
I’m in the southern hemisphere but watch most of our games live. But with 3 kids under 10, the 1am-5am wake-ups are less practical whilst also having to work. We have a really good streaming service here so for example yesterday I just had the game on-demand at 6am which would have been about 30mins after the game finished. Had it on whilst getting ready for work, kids ready etc.

Who even watches football? I thought everyone judges players based off their FIFA and football manager ratings these days?

06 May 2024 18:32:30
Amorin, the old guys do, for sure. The young pups lack the patience and brain power to do do hence, the FIFA Manager and "Who Scored? " stats which is like preferring microwave cooking to actual cooking using fresh ingredients and a recipe and a stove. You people lack the patience for such things.

Before I got married and had kids, I would watch whatever I could. In fact Id take a month off work just to watch the world cup. Nowadays if I watch one WC game then its a miracle. I subscribe to LFCTV so I can watch the games on reply at my convenience. Living in Oz, Im way past the days of getting up at 1am to watch a match knowing Im off to work in 4 hours.
