Supporting teams other then Wednesday!

Recommended Posts

Supported Wednesday all my life....but as a football fan, I don't think anyone can deny how fascinating it is to watch Manchester City. Pep Guardiola is the best manager in world football, City play with a system, Liverpool play 200mph rushed football.

 

Fell into the trap that much, I think Manchester City's brand of football is unmissable. I'll watch them whenever they're on telly. They're creating something special and I want to witness it, nothing wrong with that.

I support Wednesday but follow/look out for various other clubs: Hibs, Atalanta, Boca Juniors, Portland Timbers and, more recently, Woking.

 

Don't mind Arsenal (Dad's side of the family are all Gooners, and so are most of my friends) and West Ham (the mrs's family are all Hammers). Mum's side of the family are all Palace fans, and they were my nearest professional club when I was a kid, but I don't particularly like them despite having a season ticket with a load of schoolfriends there for one year in the late '90s.

 

In the various big rivalries I always favour Man City and Liverpool over Man Utd, Everton over Liverpool, Celtic over Rangers, Barca over Real.

 

The only teams I really can't stand are Sheffield United, Man Utd, Leeds and Spurs.

Possibly the wrong (or loaded) question from the OP.  I have and will always support Wednesday, my only team. However, I watch a lot of football cos I love it and I take sides/favour some teams over others cos it makes it more interesting.  This is not  random thing, as I am 60 odd now and growing up forged a few links.

 

Man U over City - grew up watching Best, Charlton and Law, and remember the European Cup win over Benfica, 68 was it?.  City got us relegated from the first division, even though they tried their best not to!

Liverpool over Everton - grew up watching Liverpool in the 70's European games when there was not a lot of footy on telly, had a reyt team and great players (not over fond of fans though) Everton beat us in 66, that's enough for me

Tottenham over Arsenal.  Loved watching Ardillies, Villa, Waddle and Hoddle among others.  Don't really need to comment on Arsenal do I?

Don't like Chelsea in any way shape or form, so Arsenal and Tottenham to beat them.

Real Madrid over Barca - not sure why, another 60's 70's European thingy maybe?

Stranrear - Used to go on Holiday there.

 

Think that's it, all other teams it depends on how I feel on the day or what's at stake, usually go for the underdog.

Wednesday for me all the way, this does not however mean, that over the years I have not developed various 'spots for various teams, for various reasons.

 

A Ferenc Puskas lead Real Madrid were the first. Sister Wright (No relation) allowed me into the Childrens Hospital TV room to witness Reals destruction of Eintracht Frankfurt...

 I was just 10 years old how could you fail to be inspired by that lot.

 

Not long after that I was so proud to be selected at Crookesmoor Juniors for the house footy tournament and Scored for Hawkins (Yellows) slotting past Rod Smith who was in goal for Grenville (Green). We lost in the final 2-1 against Drake (blues). But I digress.

 

Hartlepools and Morton were next  to catch my eye successively finishing bottom of their respective leagues and conceding an enormous amount of goals, I think there were season where both managed to concede 130+.

 

By the time I was 15 I went on a school trip to Italy (Florence) Fiorentina, Only saw them once as they beat Milan at the Horseshoe stadium 4-2 I was Magnetised by their Purple Kit.

 

More latterly I have toured Scotish lower leagues which I love. St Mirren, and Stenhousemuir I quite like, for the experience rather than the teams.

Not sure why but often when I read your posts they stir memories of the Fast Show character Rowley Birkin QC. :Sid:

Only support Wednesday. I like to see certain clubs do well because their fans are friendly, you can have a laugh with, have impressed me or the club stands for something. Clubs fitting this description are Rangers, WBA, Wycombe, West Ham.

On the other hand teams whose fans come across as arrogant and vile are the likes of Pigs, Leeds, Liverpool, Derby, Celtic.

My one and only passion is Wednesday.

The distribution of wealth in the PL is the most even in Europe, hence why it’s so competitive rather than the procession you get in the other major leagues.  You want to see big clubs being greedy & destroying their domestic league - I give you RM, Barca, Juve, PSG, Bayern - all self entitled enemies of fair competition more concerned with the collection of wealth than giving their countries supporters a league worth watchingand destroying it in the process. You use the term “big 6” on a derogatory sense but remember in the EPL there used to be a big two, then a big 4 & now it’s a big 6. That there’s growth that is, in the next decade you could have a big 8,10,12. That’s because the draw of the big clubs drives viewing figures across the world, and the competition from the smaller clubs makes it exciting and gives all PL clubs the ability to invest, improve themselves and grow.  It’s easy to be on the outside & criticise the EPL model but that’s borne out of jealousy mainly and when we get there we’ll love it as much as the rest.

Absolute claptrap.  The top6 is only a top 6 because moneybags have descended on Albion's shores and have little care or disregard for any of the rest of the FL.

 

And as for the most equitable distro, thats certainly not for a lack of trying to change from the usual big-time charlies.

 

Just wait for the next tv deal to get cut.  Ostentatious London palaces need paying for.

Unfortunately mate, and i’m sorry I have to be the one to break this to you, but football clubs are owned by very rich people nowadays who want their club to generate as much money as they possibly can.  They mostly do this because they like money, but they also like success so a good number of them invest a lot of that money into their clubs in the hope of achieving that success. Fans, us irrational idiots, also love it when clubs spend that money on players. Look! there’s a “megathread” pinned to the top of this forum dedicated to the subject of getting new shiny players into the club. Maybe one day we’ll spend enough in the gathering of these players to not only make it into the Premier League but also maybe become part of a “Big ...” well, anything really. 

 

Leicester, a few years back, were us. They invested & their recruitment & ambition could see them become part of the “Big 7”, or maybe not & they get relegated back down here & the status quo is restored. 

 

I just know that the facts are the PL has the fairest wealth distribution of all the European major leagues and because of that investment in competition it is also the richest league in the world. The big clubs will always try to twist things to their advantage but they all realise what the leagues strength is and that’s why despite the doom-mongering of fossils such as yourself proclaiming “claptrap” there has been no breakaway, no carve-up, no closed shop. In fact, it’s getting stronger & more teams have a chance of winning it than ever before.

 

Which sounds like an improvement to me.

I only support Wednesday but in any big game there's almost always a team I'd prefer to see win. I wouldn't call that supporting them even though I might cheer at moments. 

 

I hoped Liverpool would win the league. 

 

I always want the English teams to win in the Champions League. Probably even when it's Man City, a team I detest.

I forgot that I also support Ayr United because of their kit releases.
