It will probably upset the usual suspects on here.
Then we can all have an armchair debate about who has won the most trophies. As though that is what supporting a football team is all about.
Then we might get some good excuses like:
I live in Ireland.
I live 200 miles away and can´t go to games.
- well support your local team then
My uncle too ...[text shortened]... times, Arsenal 6, Chelsea 6, Liverpool 5 among the 500 or so games I have attended in the flesh.
what's your club?
500 games? I think during my whole life I watched maybe 100 games... in television...
But I support you.. now everyone likes to support one of the "big clubs", when 90% of the time, they have no connection to them. Reason? maybe to annoy friends in school. Then it grows into them, and that's it. They support the club without a reason to start with.
As for me, I'm for a very small club. Why? Because it's MY town's club. Because I played there in juniors. Because they suck, but they're the greatest.
As for the 1st division clubs, I have 1-2 preferences. But if one of them loses, I really don't care. They don't mean anything to me.
