I have written one article referring to soccer and intend to do more. It is my natural inclination to refer to it as 'football' as that is what everyone calls it in my country, but I know that a large part of the English speaking world (i.e the USA) calls it 'soccer'.
It an issue that has been long argued on various forums but from a traffic point of view what would be the best move?
As an english football fan, I'll fight tooth and nail for the correct term to be used instead if its Americanised "Soccer." Football as all true believers know started in england in 1863 which is waaaaaay before that pansy ass overly padded variation on rugby started. Hence football, thank you very much I'll be here all week, don't forget to tip your waitress.
On a more serious note, although the word football is the way forward I'd put soccer in as a keyword because as previously mentioned there are quite a few americans who if they search for the topic at all will insist on calling it soccer.
Philistines.......I ask you (tongue firmly in cheek.)
