I usually support any English team when they're playing against some team from another country (most Spanish clubs -but not all- excepted), so I was happy when they won. Are there any clear rivalries apart from the obvious ones (Sheffield Wednesday vs. Sheffield United, Liverpool vs. Everton, Manchester United vs. Manchester City...)? I mean, does North usually go against South? Or East agains West? Is there any team no one but their supporters like? Does people from one county usually support teams from the same county, or just the opposite?

(I know this is complex, but just in case you can give me a general idea.)

No but my uterus has been pressing against my bladder. It's the thought of Wednesday night games on Channel 5. Not good for your waterworks. x

You're down as a pre-season friendly to get New York 75% full so they can issue a safety certificate! :shock:

The only football match I've ever seen was at Bristol City (against Newcastle) when I was 10. Micky Quinn was playing for the Toon and everyone was yelling at him for being fat. I couldn't believe how crap all the players were on both teams. I'd seen football on TV before and assumed everyone would be as good as that. Then this bloke took a piss on the terraces. And everyone was yelling and swearing. What a load of shit, I thought to myself and I've never been to watch a game since.

But weirdly, I read about football everyday.

The old Gallowgate end at Newcastle was marvellous for piss rivers. The bogs were about halfway up the stairs and would flood very quickly with everyone filled up on McEwans Best Scotch and the urinals being of the old park public toilet variety. Sure enough by the time off kick off they'd be overflowinglike High Force.
