Fave football (soccer for you yankees) clubs?

I was curious about which football clubs jemsiters support, so I thought that I'd post a thread on one. Here are mine:

Werder Bremen
Chelsea
Bayern Munich
Inter
Valencia (though here we don't get their matches often)

I'm beginning to grow on Reading since they've been playing very well this season (goalkeeper beating aside). They even beat Curbishley's West Ham at 6-0, which is so far this season's biggest score margin.

Just the one for me: Tottenham Hotspur.

Was coerced into supporting them as soon as i was brought into being, them being the family team. Here in Japan the footy is pretty awful but when i do watch i watch Yokohama FC Marinos.

Oh, good skills Reading for giving West Ham a good kicking.

Yeah, over here it's even worse. Our local players hardly ever score and the ones who have been usually do in penalties. If it weren't for the African players I swear we'd be looking at mostly 2-0 scorelines.

Now....if ever a thread was going to turn ugly.............................................. ..........................

Footy talk in Britain is a far more sensitive topic than politics/religion or anything else banned around here

Re: Fave football (soccer for you yankees) clubs?

Man Utd all the way I'm afraid.

Have been since I can remember.
I may be from East London, but a huge chunk of my family are from Manchester. And thats where it comes from. So at least I have an excuse for the support! And I go and see a few games every season too. So I put some time in.

But football (soccer) is kinda my main passion. More than music or guitar really. Its just that football runs in the family one way or another, so I was brought up with it. But I follow Spanish Football (La Liga) almost as closely as I do the Premiership. Hardly ever miss a Spanish game thats on at the weekend.

Well, it's Chelsea vs Villa now. Any of you know what's going on? My damned local satellite TV network isn't allowing me to watch it. Instead I'm just getting Arsenal vs Charlton. :s
