Had a stroke, apparently.
Only gets slightly weird when the lower league side starts getting good (e.g. I've a few mates who support Swansea or Cardiff who also support (for example) Liverpool or Man United due to the fact that when they were growing up Swansea/Cardiff were bumbling around the lower divisions).
Of course if you don't bother supporting the local lower league side and just go for one of the Premiership teams, you get derided as a glory hunter (in relative terms in some cases). If you don't bother supporting a Premiership side, and just support the local lower/non-league team, everyone thinks you're being a bit worthy and up yourself and it reduces the opportunity to get involved in discussions about the Premiership.
Basically, you can't win unless you happen to have been born within 2 miles of Old Trafford or wherever.
This is a really embarrassing post. If you're a glory hunter you dont need to justify it to anyone but yourself.
