Who Do You Support?

Post by Mike » Wed Jan 19, 2011 4:39 pm

Who do you support, and why?

I am an Arsenal fan (season ticket holder since we moved to Emirates in 2006), as my grandad has supported them since the 30's. You'll be pleased to know that he's still alive and kicking at the age of 88! :D

Anyway, he got his first season ticket at Highbury just after WW2. Naturally, he brought my father up as a Gooner, and then I went through the same process. We've had some good times in my lifetime, but it seems to have dried up since 2005.

Saying that though, I couldn't be more lucky. I enjoy supporting Arsenal so much, and wouldn't change it!

United. Family ties and background lead me to be a red... Though I follow Huddersfield Town too - seeing as that's where I was brought up.

I now live in Salford, and drive past Old Trafford at least twice a day.

Manchester United. I have been a red devil from as young as I can remember. Been to see loads of matches and fortunate enough to travel on away games to see them. Going to see them play Wolves soon as I live down the road from the Molineaux.

I also support St. Patricks Athletic back home in Dublin. Been supporting them for as long as I can remember :D

Arsenal FC :ugeek:
Love the way they play, been supporting them since i was a baby :P (dad bought me a mini arsenal full body jacket 8-) , which probably was amazingly awesome :lol: )
Secondary team who i always watch and root for if an arsenal match isn't on at the same time is Liverpool FC.

I'm not a die hard fan, but my team is SS Lazio. Quite strange because I'm from Northern Ireland.

I am the strangest football fan, well thats what I think
I was a Pro Formula 1 fan before, I hated football, Untill 2000, When I saw Mr Arjen Robben Play for FC groningen, Since that day I started too love football and play PES (Yep I started PES just back then) And since that day I also watched every game Robben participated in.

I don't have ANY favourite club, I have a favourite player, And i'm touring through the countries just like him, and supporting the club he plays for.
So i've been a HALF Groningen fan, HALF PSV fan, HALF chelsea fan, HALF madrid fan and now i am a HALF bayern fan. offcourse i hope the club he plays for atm wins its matches.

But I really support Robben, If he doesn't play I don't even watch the match. haha!

I know, I'm strange.
