Which Footy Team (Just for fun!)
« on: August 03, 2010, 01:19:21 PM »
So, you're born and bred in Birmmingham with lots of fabulous football teams to choose from. Will you be a Bluenose, Baggie or Villain?

Football-lore dictates that you should support the team you're born closest to. So, interested to hear where you were born and who you support. This little gadget should help work out the distance to your nearest grounds:

Hello HarryB,

Welcome to the best forum in town, you've made a fine choice O0

I was never a real supporter of any of them as a nipper tho' I went to St Andrews most as I did the round on Saturday morning with the milkman and part of the pay was he took me there after taking the electric cart back - I liked Gil Merrick, a gentleman as well as a very fine keeper.

...I've supported Liverpool for well over 50 years since I saw them beaten 9-1 there, before Shanks - the baying blues ''fans'' came out with the worst I'd ever seen till then, so, having a leaning to the underdog and being let's say 'independently' minded, the Reds got their newest supporter - and I've obviously never regretted it.   

I saw Barcelona at St Andrews in the old Fairs Cup, liked what I saw, and have supported them since - again no regrets esp in recent years  Naturally my second team in PL is anyone that beats Mancs.  Lived in Scotland in some of the days Dalglish was at Liverpool, and my mate was a Celt, so I look out for them.

Who do you support?

Myself hubby and children are all bluenose. Hubby was bought up just a few hundred yards from the ground. However eldest grandson is a villa fan. His dad threatens to wipe his bum on his shirt when he is not looking. ;D
