Brazil is just an example, Cyber. All those bandwaggon fans easily jump ship to Spain, Germany or Holland without much problem.

The point is, international football is watched by a hell lot of more people than club football. These sort of people make up the majority of watchers, because sadly die-hard football fans are limited.

So International football is not going anywhere and will have more fame, prestige and all those things the WC is assosiated with.

Copa America figures were usually low because the tournament is played at inconvenient time schedules for Asian countries.

Why not compare the television figures for World cup final 2010 and last year's Cl final?

Its clear u dont know jack about asian support and viewing figures world over so stop embarrassing urself.

You clearly did not understand my post.

There is nowhere where I deny United's fanbase nor the revenue earned from it.

I simply touch upon a fact that United's fanbase exists, yet is not actually being followed closely by the millions of fans within India, and more so Asia.

I'm simply touching upon the phenomena on how United have become more of a brand then a team and a large chunk of the Asian support could not actually give a rats ass on what actually happens to them.

Don't believe me? Ask the Asian populace over here.

It can't be proven by numbers.

The support is there on paper, but not in loyalty and actual interest in whats actually going on.

Over there it is ridiculous on how ignorant they are to the team they actually support.

The United to Barca jump? Ask the asian populace again..

But United is THE global footballing brand no doubt.

Well we have one sixth of world population and have 3rd highest in purchasing power.

So yes a lot of Brands cares hugely about India including United even if u are deluded.

ah.. so the copa america figures are low and heres an excuse why!!!
many people watch WCs, who said anything different? but theres a difference between many watching when theres no other football on and actually supporting the team involved.
i watch the super bowl, but i dont give a damn who wins and forget about it 1 hour later
i watch el classico as many do..biggest viewing audience in the world....but utd still have a larger fan base than both
My girlfriend knows every word to the rihanna / eminem collaberation last year, but shes never bought an eminem record
legends arent made at the WC because its forgotten soon after. whos still talking about hollands run? theyre at this minute tearing up their qualifying group..where are their legends?
well done india btw...bla bla bla etc.
utd are the most popular brand in asia and still havent cracked india? so how important are india then?
jpog it on son

Tbf to United its not only their fans.Most fans here dont even know the name of the ground they play.

An Arsenal fan few weeks back asked me why is Arsenal fans cheering Henry in Emirates cup.Its the same for Liverppol or Chelsea or Barca or Madrid or United.

Its kinda funny though

Exactly my point.U cant even compare the popularity of world cup with any other spectacle in most parts.

Women world cup figures are a bit of a surprise to me tbh.Are they usually that high in Germany or is it an one-off because Germany were hosts?Just a doubt though

Well, in Germany the figures for women's matches are high enough that the TV stations decided to broadcast all matches of the women's NT, even friendlies, nowadays.

As for the CL figures - I included the Bayern-Inter finale here as matches with German participation are of course drawing higher viewer numbers than matches without German participation. In view of that I found the WWC finale figure astounding as it was between Japan and USA while Germany were already out and sulking.

I wonder if someone can post the figures for Spain, England, Italy, and Netherlands, too.

To point out, George Best is a Top 10 player of all time. Still though international football matters.

Maradona would ve been just as good as Ronaldinho if not for his NT performances

Erm so who u think are the other 9 players?

And just out of curiosity where would u rate Kenny Dalglish considering he had a far better club career.

I have not seen many players, but good statistical analysis here:
http://footballpantheon.com/2011/09/the-100-greatest-players-of-all-time/

I know a premface site, but they rated Dalglish at 50 something, and are yet to list Best, my money is he will be top 10-15

Nah it would be laughable if Best is placed at 10-15 and Dalglish is placed at 50.So i dont think the site is worth mentioning tbh.

Anyway i am asking why would u place Best among the top 10 footballers of all time.For what achievement really? Considering he wasnt even particularly successful even at Club level compared with most other great players.

He had one great season and a couple good seasons in Europe and never played in world cup by all accounts.So are u saying he deserves to be an top 10 all time great because he had few good league seasons?

It seems he is rated for some sort of legendary myth rather than performance on the field.

As I havent seen Best, I can only refer to opinions on him. Pele and other great players said he was exceptional. Also, I cant confirm, but he was the best player in United squad to lead them to CL
