A recent conversation with Mutu and some of my best friends made me realize that although most of football fans like almost every good game, they tend to have a preference on the competition that believe is the best - or make their heart tick the most.
I found out that most of the younger people I know tend to believe that CL is the most interesting thing to watch as a football fan, while some older ones believe that nothing else reaches the quality and the plurality of styles a WC has to offer. Of course options can be differ not necessarily regarding the age.
Well, I like watching football a lot and I can say that at least the last 10-12 years CL is really enjoyable to watch. BUT, I really cannot compare the anxiety, the pluralism of styles and the entertainment I get watching a World Cup.
Maybe it's because I saw some great world cups in the late 80's and 90's (as in the most recent ones almost all the teams are trying to play a European - more controlled - and a bit boring - type of football).
But really I cannot compare any CL match to some WC matches - like the England vs Argentina in '86 with Maradona making fool of the ref (first) and then the entire England NT (second goal). Or the final between them and Germany in the same year or the final 4 years later when with Klinsmann, Mathaus and co. we took our revenge. Or even the late 90's - early 00's WCs with Zidane and France miracle (who won an almost perfect Brazilian NT) or the Brazil with Rivaldo, Ronaldo etc. or how Kahn alone lead us to the final in WC 2002, or ....
There are many examples I can remember. We use to gather with my friends to watch WCs and it was really enjoyable as we support different NTs. (BTW one of my best friends is an Argentinian supporter so I had a lot of enjoyment in the last WC
So here's a question and a poll. Please discuss your preference and the reasons behind it.
