They didn't like ... much or very much?

¿Cómo es fútbol en inglés británico, soccer o football? Siempre me hago un lío con esta palabra (será porque no me gusta...).

Thanks.

Football. Soccer en realidad es football, solo que en USA llaman footbal a una especie de rugby glorificado...

Inclino hacia "They don't like football very much", aunque "They don't like football much" también está bien, y "They don't much like football" es aceptable (más formal).

No, Chileno tiene la razón. Irma ha preguntado específicamente sobre el inglés británico, y "soccer" es un estadounidismo.

And "much" or "very much". My book says "much", but I think I could say "very much", couldn't I?

Yes, you could. According to my wife in the background, the difference between them is very subtle. So subtle in fact that she can't define it. I think they can be used interchangeably.

By the way, there used to be just football in England, until the school of Rugby invented a variation of football involving cheating by holding the ball in your hand, and much more violence. This was known as Rugby football, then just Rugby. The original football was known as Association Football, and Association was later shortened to Soccer. That's one theory, anyway, and who cares?
