OK I was raised in east Lincolnshire, and support Leicester City (was born there and have family there). I now live in Kent and see more of them now then when I was a kid. I would see the foxes play 20 times per season H&A
I also support Lincoln City (even tho Boston and Grimsby are closer) because when I was a young teen I couldnt afford or do the 100 mile journey to Leicester so just did the 45 mile and 2hr bus journey to Lincoln (no connections to Grimsby or Boston). I was a season ticket holder for 8 years, now see them play 15 times per season H&A
Furthermore in Scotland I support Hearts. I went to uni with a Mad Hearts fan who bullied me into supporting them (well took me up on the 2hr train a few times from York to see them) also did my masters in Glasgow and couldnt face watching the old firm, so got a season ticket at Tynecastle. At the moment being in Kent is a bugger, and last season got to tynie just the once, but will be going up for the champs league this year.
Now the odd one (if we are talking association to teams and distance away from them etc). Is I am a Scotland football team Supporter. I am not scottish, have no scottish history, but I love going to watch the football team and being with the fans. I fly up for all home matches and abroad for a few matches.
I dont think its important to live near a team to support them, BUT you must be loyal (by that I dont mean where the shirt and watch them on Sky). You must travel, you feel happy when they win and miserable when they loose, you must get to all possible games that you can at no matter what lengths.
Bring on the new season, my predictions for m teams:
Leicester - Play-off winners
Lincoln - third
Hearts - Third, Scottish cup and group stages of Champions league.
Scotland - 3rd in qualifying (well thats over 2 seasons but hay its a prediction and a wishful one at that)
If Holland had less players like Robben (and van persie) they may actually achieve something that their talent suggests. A more self indulgent team I haven't seen.
Does anyone know where I can download a full version of funny Adidas +10 commercial? Thanks.
does anybody know if there is an internet page somewhere that has a breakdown of all the summer transfers, club-by-club, because i have missed some of the early summer transfers.
Another 'keeper here. Converted from defence not long after starting uni.
Yes I'm a keeper, love it too.
Difference with Robinson is that he has new gloves for every game! I have training gloves and match gloves though now, which helps.
