No commercial breaks. I don't watch TV nowadays but that is one of the things I hated when watching basketball.
A combination of play that's almost telepathic that makes me drop my jaw and ask, "how did they do that?"
And anything that just leaves me, "football, bloody he'll! "
Clubs like Soton, Augsburg, etc makes me not lose hope in football's soul.
A club with traditions and doesn't forsake them for success.
Players with personalities (not too much or bordering on idiocy) . You know not those PR controlled to within an inch of the lives.
Interacting with different people in all walks of life and having football as your common interest. Here in my country, just meeting another football fan randomnly is quite rare.
