D'oh, quoted the wrong word, should not be "it's" but "are", sorry :-)

Thanks! So if the team's name is plural, then "it's" are but otherwise it's "is". So for national teams like Brazil or Spain then it's "are" but Juventus and Real Madrid are "is"?

I once heard someone say "It's not that I'm unintelligent, but..." and it stuck in my mind, I like it. I think it's a way of saying I'm not stupid but I don't want to sound pretentious by saying I'm smart, and also I don't want the pressure of saying I'm smart but at the same time make sure you know I'm not stupid.
