where were you born?
where did you grow up?
(if known/relevant) who did your dad support?
But only after you UNDERSTAND what has been happening there for the past 11 years
Not the nearest big club, but any club. They have to have a ground of some sort, not a pub team likes.
and no backing out like Biffy Clyro with that t-shirt.
And then there wasn't because they realised it was illegal.
9 of them English.
Man Utd as well. And maybe Liverpool.
Big enough that you'll catch 'em on TV. Good enough that you can convince yourself every year that THIS might be the year they qualify for Europe. But also rubbish enough that every year you can experience a relegation scare. Every match will be unpredictable.
Plus they're not Newcastle.
sellout homegames in a tiny home stadium with a half decent squad with no ambition other than to do as much as possible with as little as possible
recently adopted them as they're my closest team and it's great fun so far
It'll piss off your dad.
Everton or Newcastle if you really must support an English team.
The whole idea of choosing a team is a bizarre one to me and trust me if you are choosing one now the team will never mean as much to you as it should. Basically there is next to no point.
but I will keep an eye on the winner if not for shits and giggles, y'know. Also, no way to Rangers (looking for an english team), their fans are the shame of scotland. They make even my blood boil and I don't support celtic.
...element of fans and unfortunately both Rangers and Celtic have some fucking absolute morons in their fanbase.
But please don't single out Rangers as being "the shame of Scotland."
I just think rangers cretins outnumber them and outdo them in sheer cuntyness
But I loathe the cunty fans of my club who taint our reputation with their bigoted orange pish.
Nottingham Forest - 7
lines are still open for others
can someone explain what the joke with MK Dons is then? I don't even know where they're from or anything. Also, what's the story with Nottingham Forest then?
Presumably because they used to be Wimbledon FC until some guy bought them and moved the to England's cultural and spiritual blackhole, Milton Keynes.
I seem to remember there was a great deal more bad blood involved than just that.
Or Accrington Stanley obvs.
or MK Dons
How about Tyneside? They play at the Magpie Stadium.
...write down all 92 league clubs on individual bits of paper, stick 'em in a receptacle of your choosing and draw them out one by one. The last team standing will be your team for the rest of your days.
In fact, do this and make a thread out of it. I can guarantee the tension will be unbearable.
Using this site - http://andrew.hedges.name/experiments/random/pickone.html - and a list of all 92 PL and FL clubs... Gimme a few minutes...
MK Dons were the second-last to go :')
...it's a good laugh doing that, though. A non-football-supporting mate of mine decided that he wanted to adopt a team to support for one season, so we made him do this using only Scottish Third Division teams so that he couldn't take the easy option of going for the local high-fliers (Hearts and Hibs).
He pulled East Fife out of the hat at the end and, true to his word, supported them throughout the season. They aced the Third Division that year by some considerable margin. The following season - once the grand experiment was over - they were relegated by mid-March.
We burnt him as a white witch not long after.
you should see how many teams move in american sports
That and the fact that they tend to be massively boring.
I happen to love American Sports.
they're called franchises in america, it's like supporting McDonalds.
And you HAVE to go to at least 10 home games.
But am happy to send you to the hellish dive that is Milton Keynes (nothing personal, i just love the idea of an Aussie being linked to it FOREVER), so yeah, MK Dons.
