Is Watching Matches At Viewing Centres Fun Filled?

I am an introvert but have quite number of friends, most of them love football. I have alwayas enjoy watching football on my own in order to prevent interruption . I have gotten so many invtations from a number of friends to watch matches at viewing centres which have turned down times without numbers. last weekend i got an invitation which i honoued and i must confess i enjoyed every moment that i spent watching the match between <arsenal and man city> because it was extremely comical in nature. pls comrades share your experince in the viewing centres.

viewing centres are fun to watch football all the same

why are some people making money playing while others

are making noise and shouting on top of their voices.

In europe a fan will be glued to his tv set because there

is something at stake for him with the club.the more reason

you see them crying if that club looses but here in this part of the world

because there is nothing in it for us you see us shouting on top of our voices

and making jests of the footballers even though many of the spectators can not raise the ball.

it is high time we knew how people make themselves rich watching football so that we can

watch football in viewing centres with dignity

thanks

Watching football matches in a viewing center is very sweet and joyful. To be realistic, I have asked most football fans who have Dstv and other satelite at home why some of them are still parading viewing centres in watching football matches and the response was that the excitement and harmony that it has brought to our society is very enormous.

Viewing centres? Count me out. I remember watching the 2007(i think) UCL btw liverpool and chelsea,chelsea to lost and liverpool fans were about celebrating only for some agbero boys who lost money on bets to start stabbing people. The scar of the wound i got after falling into a ditch is a reminder to me and my unborn child why we must never be caught dead in such place.

And also when there are arguements and people start flinging saliva in ur face? Yuck! That's a huge turn off for me.

I prefer inviting a few friends over or goin to friends' place and chill over a few bottles and small chops while watchin the match.

My mood determines where I watch a live match but I have more fun @ d viewing centers. When the home team is bn outplayed on possession you start hearing chants like "ta lo wan le oooo" (which is d home team?) lol.

Viewing centres are the bomb!!! The nicknames given to footballers are just funny. When your team is winning, you'll definitely feel the joy with other fans of the same team also teasing the fans of the losing team. But the same goes when your team is losing. There's just much fun in watching matches at viewing centres.

Don't know what a viewing center is, but it's always more fun to watch a game with a bunch of people. Whether it's UTD playing or a team I really hate such as Barca, when I get together with friends, and friends of friends maybe in pubs; it's always more fun.

Viewing centre is fun but I prefer watching at home in the comfort of my parlour. But I must confess, the few times I've gone to watch football at viewing centres, it's always been fun and full of excitement.

I don't know what you mean by 'viewing centres', but I always watch my matches in bars/lounges where I can enjoy a few bottles of beer while watching the game alongside fellow football enthusiasts. It's incredible fun, with different kinds of people spewing different comments. I love it when supporters of a team start leaving a bar in annoyance when their team is being battered (e.g. Man U's 8 - 2 wallop of Arsenal). . .and the winning team's supporters would spontaneously start singing and clapping "dem don dey go, one by one; dem don dey go, one by one. . ." Lol. Pure fun, I tell you. Watching football at home sucks.

haha...i never miss going to viewing centres whenever I can. I was at one during a game and this Man U fan behind me kept arguing that he had watched a game where the ball possession was 80-30 (not 70-30 ooo) in favour of Man U. Everything people tried to make him see that 80-30 meant 110% proved futile and everyone gave up.

If those stuffy, choking and indecent viewing centres discourages you, then all you've got to do is to locate a modest and decorous one in your area. You will meet responsible people, elder men, avid and enthusiastic fans, crazy arguers, mockers ... the list is countless and you don't want to be the team behind this chorus "One by one/ dem don dey go..." that is when your team has lost woefully(e.g TOT-CHE FA CUP 2day or MANU-MAN CITY first leg) and you can't withstand the humiliation any more and decide to leave b4 final whistle...mehn u go nearly stumble if dem start that song the moment u get and approach the door with ur face down and shoulders down in disappointment hehehe...No doubt a viewing centre is just the place to be because u'll definitely get more value for ur gate pass.

Not a football freak as such, but the few moments I have watch matches in gatterings its usually at lounges I.e Parlours, Underground, La Posh, Green Court, Angels etc. Most of these places are usually filled with supposed "big boys" as such everyone acting up not to appear being local.

From the comments I have read, I think it is real fun watching in some local viewing centre.

Local viewing centres will sure be like the early morning vendor stand, where everyone is an analyst with different stupi*d and rib cracking comments.

rotflmao! i never watched soccer in any viewing centre. i watch at home with my brothers and i enjoy it so much. not long ago, i travelled and there was no dstv where i was so i almost went to a viewing centre but i didnt know of any and before i knew it, time was up! i only watched the highlights online though. i later thanked God i couldn't watch it cos it was when we (arsenal) lost 2-1 to QPR at the loftus road stadium.

I remember when I operated a viewing centre myself, and hard to show mostly, EPL matches and then go somewhere else where we have plenty of la liga fans to watch my own team play. Whenever it was champions league (match) time, and we (I and a couple of friends) have to watch it at home, they usually turn out to be boring moments, believe me. But now, I wouldn't trade (going to) viewing centers for the (private) presidential lounge! A trial will convince you all.

I had never thought of going to these really local viewing centres until i fell short of my DSTV payment a couple of years back and i had to make do with one of those viewing centres and i have been a regular visitor to these centres, what i find most interesting is the argument and the name calling!

I picked up a few:

Cisse  -  Babalawo

Clichy -  Kilisi

Ferdinand -  Igbo!!!!!

Obertan  -   Igun!!!!!

Aladierre  -  Aladiye
