I'm really getting into it.
dont have a team to support. might support bradford city.
the team most direly in need of DiS fans is Millwall, who are 6th in the Championship and pushing for great things. they wear pretty blue shirts plus they have a nice name :)
on millwall vitals forum
help them get out of the third division
I just don't really care about Celtic. I like it when we beat them and all that but why all the hate? I accept I'm not very representative of Rangers fans.
The hatred is in danger of lumping us in with all the sectarian morons, surely?
It's odd that in Northern Ireland and Scotland the preference comes down to a sectarian division, but in England just about everyone, whether they're Catholic or Protestant, a royalist or a republican, prefers Celtic.
Nah, I sort of get that Celtic do have a slightly better kudos with the people that feel the need to pick a team in a league they don't really actually care about but it seems to be one of these self-perpetuating things.
Seems to me, these days, that supporting Rangers is far indie-r thing to do. I realise I am wibbling utter nonsense here.
I grew up in a place that is Rangers through and through and kind of ended up supporting Rangers as my whole family and basically everyone I knew did. But it was a place with a huge problem with sectarianism. Luckily I have a brain.
Both teams have got their extremely black marks in their history and both have some really vile followers but this whole Big Bad Rangers - perceived wisdom does annoy me a bit.
When Celtic were playing that last Champions League game, I genuinely didn't know what I wanted to happen before Samaras took that dive. Glad for Scottish football and the atmosphere sounded great but I very much doubt I know of any Celtic fans who are nice, nice people who would feel the same if tables were turned.
Anyway I'm rambling. Just thought I'd stick up for my clubs and many of our fans.
and i'm not talking about their fans.
obviously they don't exist anymore.
Once you divorce them from the fans.
Unless you hate the players or the manager or whatever.
It's just some guys running about.
is just pick the shittest possible team and support them.
if you're moving to Glasgow soon, why not support Queens Park?
They play in the Scottish 3rd Division, and although they're by no means the poorest team in it, they're the poorest-supported side in Scottish professional football, yet they play their home games at Hampden Park (the national stadium) which holds 53,000 people, but draw crowds of around 600.
Failing that, i can recommend lots of good non-league clubs in and around Manchester.
they used to play here, sure you'll know of it - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cathkin_Park
ummmmm.....that's all I've got......
it's amazing/kinda eerie because the stands are still there in amongst the trees
on account of the difference between stadium capacity and crowd size.
amateurs, too. noble.
cannae complain fae that
Where did you get that from? They are nowhere near the worst supported side.
In answer to the original question, support Partick Thistle.
and I (sort of) apologise, you are right. However the only reason theirs is so low is because they are one of the only teams not to have had a visit from Rangers this year. The stats from last year paint a much more accurate picture.
for which club is the uncoolest to follow on here based on how people on this board represent it. Uncoolest bunch get the number one spot.
That's a trophy the two North London clubs might actually be competing in
One Zapsta would probably be worth about 5 normal, sane fans.
class act, on and off the pitch. capable of playing some sublime football (especially down that left wing courtesy of the brilliant Baines and Pienaar combo) and have a tendency to beat big teams.
of course they'll do that and go and lose to Reading the following week, but at least it keeps it entertaining. oh, and they also have one of the Great Histories of any club, anywhere.
in short, they represent everything that is good and exciting about modern football. and if you think i'm being a biased Everton fan, well, you'd be totally right.
...but they have thus far handled it perfectly, unlike numerous other clubs in similar such recent situations.
Thuggish long-ball merchants, with the bitterest manager in football.
(and i quite like them, btw!)
throughout the 90's, absolutely. but now? i'm afraid not.
you saying everton were the team most similar to man city
Man City have rarely been long-ball merchants, even when they were really, really rubbish.
Can't believe nobody's suggested it already, they're right up your street
and you should actually do this
When I read a thread on my mobile and go to press <<Back to Social, it often ends up trying to tweet or like the thread as those buttons load so slowly and pop up just as I press my screen.
non sports fans keep arguing it's arbitrary, but that's the point, they're your club, and they will betray you and hurt you and somehow you'll still go back for more for no good reason.
You could try supporting a well run one, but you may need to leave the country for that
Think it's about four years out of date, mind.
