Sorry.
For 1985 - 1990,
1985 should change to 1986.

2006-2010 or 2011-2015 it's hard to decide

Not that it was perfect back then but now we are at the lowest point (yet)

There is a bias of nostalgia of course. I find new players boring and no charisma but they are younger than me so i see them as tiktok boys, it's not like watching men play as a kid/teenager. I can be amazed by the talent but i don't develop "emotional" bound with players. Chiellini and Bonucci are the last i'll truly care about i think

But beyond nostalgia i feel football is much worse these days especially since Infantino has taken over Fifa. This guy is a gangster he cares only for money and does not care at all for the game, its heritage, its esthetism. He is corrupt Blatter on steroids. I see increasing importance of sponsors Carabao cup, Allianz stadium 48 teams world cup, 24 teams euro just for longer tournaments. Menacing the existence of Champions League either by scrapping it for ESL or with terrible reforms it ruins my enthusiasm.

Super agents like Mendes and Raiola contribute to lower my enthusiasm
VAR contribute to lower my enthusiasm

Juve midfield is absolute crap. Bentancur and Rabiot don't deserve to wear this jersey even the JJ one. Gtfo and gtfo respectively

Last point is against the globalization of football. As example i dislike how Premier League is taking over artificially because of foreign investors. So their margin as richest league is increasing to detriment of others and it's not even due to England itself nor the quality of their football. Only because TV rights are the most important thing these days. As north american i used to see football as a battle of countries (even league vs league) and i like to have many strong leagues not just 1

the 2000s easily. So glad i have memories of players like Henry, Pires, Bergkamp, Ljungberg, Reyes, Fabregas, van Persie and even Arshavin's little stint with us. And then of course others such as Ronaldinho, Kaka, Del Piero, the GOAT AC Milan defense, watching Messi emerge. All the pain Drogba, Rooney and Ronaldo cost me. Gerrard and Torres' 2009 connection. Lampard, peak Jose Mourinho, Vieira vs Keane, Keown vs Van Nistelrooy.

2006-2010. What compares to the football you watched as a kid? When getting a jersey with one of your favorite players was generally unattainable except for your birthday or Christmas, and you would watch youtube videos of goals and try and replicate them in the yard. When footy on TV was hard to catch, so you really had to research when it would be on and what channel, and you would record it onto a DVD to rewatch later. Chatting shit online with strangers on the Goal.com forums at your middle school library

Hell, my ma let me out of school early one day to watch UCL 09/10 Barca vs Stuttgart in the RO16. Best day ever.

Back then, EA actually gave a shit about FIFA and had tons of cool extras like the FIFA 2006 "Memorable Moments", or the montages they did for Serie A, EPL, Bundesliga, and Ligue Un



I'd be surprised if anyone's answer here doesn't match the football they watched when they were 8-16 years old tbh. The nostalgia is too strong

I cannot say. Need some mind and brain experts here to explain but I can remember a 2006 LFC vs Bolton game to the subs but I cannot do the same for 2012. 2004-2011 stays with me forever. I have no idea why, I was aged 10 to 17 in those times. So 2006-2010 for me.

What a great question Guest07, Good day to you too :bow:

2004 CL won by Porto;
2004 Depor comeback vs AC Milan;
2004 Monaco 8 Depor 3;
2004 Euro won by Greece;

I did not read CSpurs comments but on reading now, I agree with his timeline and that brings to me a question while asking our older legends on this forum. I remember things in my teen is that the same for others? Ifty are you still here, would love your thoughts here.

The previous decade, 2010-2020, culminating in Pool's CL and PL trophies. Somehow us winning the Premiership after all those years deflated my interest somewhat in (club) football. It felt like reaching the end of a long journey. From nearly bankrupt and facing administration in 2011 (and a shit squad) to new owners saving the club, through slow and steady improvement to winning the first PL trophy in 30 years felt like "holy shit, it happened!" and the possibility of winning another one shortly after doesn't feel quite as exciting to me.

On top of that, club football being so top heavy has started to feel boring to me. A fairy tale like Leicester's championship is great - as is West Ham doing well this season - but it really feels like over 50% of the competition doesn't matter. It's just filler. The richest clubs compete for the title and share the glamorous CL spots between them; for the rest every season is "if we just don't get relegated it's been a decent season."

So, yeah, the last decade and Liverpool's journey through it has been my most enjoyable and invested time as a football fan.

What do u think about the 2004 Euros in terms of corruption if any? I so clearly remember Portugal throwing the game purposely skying every shot... Greece was one of the biggest upsets, the odds must have been huge.

I feel like the period I enjoyed most had far more to do with my own availability to spend time watching & posting on GL about matches than the actual football itself. Football hasn't been the same since I entered the workforce and started caring about it.

The era when the GL chat was still around and we'd stay up watching Match of the Day.

In all seriousness, the easy answer would be 2001-2005 because Arsenal were good and I was a kid, but 2011-2015 ranks high for me because it was the last time I had the time to watch a tonne of football. Nowadays I watch Arsenal, any decent PL game that's on and maybe a big match from Serie A or the Bundesliga. Barely watch La Liga anymore since Sky lost the rights and it ends up on a new network every season. I miss watching different teams and learning about different managers and players.

10-15 easily, the best football ever played by a player. And probably followed by the worst era of fake football with fake referees and fake media hype. Also my first football experience was in WC86 for context.

For me the best was the diStefano years in the 50s, however most games in that timeframe were radio broadcasts so I’ll offer another choice 2008 to 2012.

Gonna cheat a little bit because for me there have been a lot of up and downs, its not so much one period as a few amazing years.

2008 because of the best Euro I've ever seen, phenomenal tournament (Turkey comebacks, Holland performances against Italy and France, overall very competitive)
2011 because of the last Milan scudetto
2014 similar to 2008, the best World Cup I've watched (Holland 5-1 Spain, Brazil 1-7 Germany, James Rodriguez, Krul substitution France 5-2 Switzerland, etc.)
2015 because of MSN, first year I stopped hating on Barca and enjoyed Messi
2019 because of Messi's incredible form, was amazing to see what was probably his last GOAT season

For me, it was early to mid-80s. I was very young... but that World Cup in Spain in 1982 was and remains the height of football for me. What a tournament.

Then you had the Euro in 1984.

You had artists dominating the game at every position.
