Depends where you live ladies. Someone from England who has a local team should be supporting them. My local team is Donegal Celtic. It has 30 people a match and an away support of 5.
It's so tiresome to see people complaining about who OTHER people support. How on earth does it effect you personally? Support whichever team takes your fancy. If people used the ridiculous argument "support the team closet to you" then half the country would be supporting their non-league outfit. Not that supporting a non league club is a bad thing. But half the people who use the argument could certainly be supporting a much more local side.
It's like saying I shouldn't support Foo Fighter's by going to their shows and buying their albums because they're from America and I live in England. Some people may want to watch football played at a high level and that's fair enough. Absolutely nothing wrong with that whereas others may see it as a social thing - going down to watch "your local side" with a few friends and having a few drinks. Either way, it is a personal decision. One that effects you and nobody else.
Before I am labelled as some kind of glory hunter, I've support Peterborough United for 11 years and believe me I've seen some utter of the worst football imaginable being played at London Road. But I wouldn't swap it for anything.
Glory hunters are a fact of life, people should get over it.
I support Liverpool because I grew up watching them. Simple as. Plus when I was a kid I LOVED the colour red. Manchester united had white shorts so they were off-limits.
Besides, they haven't won much really. OK champions league and FA cup, but they were never a top-top side. It's been 90% disappointment.
EDIT: Besides no clubs are really 'local' to me. Birmingham, West Brom or Wolves are within 40 miles but that isn't close really.
Football is global now. Any sort of supericlious sentiments, for example "you should support the footy team that's based in your area", should now be extinct. I'm a Pakistani, and quite honestly I don't even have the faintest idea as to whether my city has a footy team or not. I've supported *guess the obvious team I support, through analysing my username* since I was 7, and haven't looked back since. I've supported Liverpool during their ups and downs (more recently, downs), and my loyalty hasn't wavered in the slightest. However, I must admit gloryhunters are quite rife here with a lot of arsenal--->chelsea conversions taking place in 2006 (currently chelsea-manu conversions are abundant) and fans ditching their teams at the slightest hinderance. I find such comparisons with footballers quite palusibe these days, *cough* Torres *cough*.
