Football, or soccer for any Americans out there, has been around for well over two thousand years in some form or other. Modern football as we know it, however, is often accredited to the British, who also hold claim to the oldest football league. Rather straight to the point, it is known as The Football League, and was founded in 1888. The Football League served as the top level league in England until 1992, at which time the top 22 teams in the league split away and formed the well known Premier League. There are now several other leagues, including the Italian Serie A and the German Bundesliga, and football has grown to become one of the most popular sports in the world – with some of the most dedicated fans.
Football isn’t just about the match and who wins it, though. Granted, our team winning is the most important aspect to any football fan, but another important factor is how the match is won. Who scores, when they do so, the tactics used that lead up to the goal and finally seeing the ball hit the back of the net like meteor. There’s nothing quite like seeing your team outwit their opponents and score an unexpected or technically difficult goal, and any decent TV editor will have the wits to show these football highlights several times before moving on.
Those of you who were around before the days of the Internet will probably have in your possession several football videos (VHS tapes) filled with the best parts of a season or cup, as that used to be the only way to watch the football highlights again at your own leisure. Luckily the internet has now made it possible to watch all the latest football highlights, as well as old football videos, whenever you so desire.
This also opens up the possibility to watch highlights from leagues that you may not otherwise watch, whether it is because you are not a fan of any particular team in that league or because you simply can’t spare the time to watch all of them. The Internet is fantastic in that you can find all the best bits of every single match played, whether it be in the English Premier League or Spanish la Liga or any other league, you will be able to find both old and new football videos of all the highlights whenever you so wish.
Initially, most football websites would be dedicated to a specific team or league and would only provide videos and highlights from their particular football interest. For anyone who enjoys football not only for the sake of supporting a team, but for the sheer beauty of the game, that would mean that you had to browse several different sites to get all of your updates. Luckily that is not the case anymore, thanks to dedicated football websites such as FootballReaction.com where you can watch all the latest football highlights and football video clips whenever you want, without spending a single dime.
