Ok I was born and grew up near leeds but have always been a Man U supporter since I was tiny - before the premier league evolved. I used to have a season ticket for a few seasons until I could no longer afford it

I think it makes sense...plus, you've got more chance of being on your local team than on Man U's! lol

I can see 4 reasons why people would want to do that.

To support their local club financially.
They've been brought up supporting the club.
If they didn't support their local club people would call them a glory supporter.
They don't mind watching rubbish football.
Some of the best football games I have seen have been between Ryman Premier league teams.

Yeah but for the boys who fancy having a 'pop' at the fancy footwork...its going to start down his local! Rubbish as it is!
Micheal Owen was in my local team (obviously a few years ago) and he was sh*te then, but look at him now!

Yes it happens, skill does not necessarily provide a good game. But overall the skill level is nowhere near the top, and its those moments of skill that we all drool over that make the 'top' matches special.
Yeah, the likes of Arsenal, Man U, Real Madrid on a good day can take your breath away.

how do you classify a glory supporter though? you can't just say that only locals are allowed to support their club!

i started supporting arsenal because we bought a 2nd hand car of sum gooner when i was young, and it had Arsenal stickers all over it so they were the first footie team i knew.... although i don't live anywhere near them!

i do support my local teams in most other sports tho!

People who switch teams whenever there's a shift in power, or ignore their team until they are doing well.

I don't see anything wrong with picking any team you like, as long as you stick with them. There's something admirable (or stupid) about sticking with a team through thick and thin.
Thats true, I'd be a Man U supporter if they were relegated, always have been always will be.

I support Liverpool and I live in the south-east. You can hardly call me a glory supporter though after the way we've been playing recently!

Does Kingstonian count as a football team; or am I excused from having to support my local?

i dont think that you should go and support your local team if you dont enjoy the football! surely you would want to go and watch entertaining football rather than supporting your own **** club

well i get enjoyment out of watching my **** local club, the atmosphere at games is a lot better than at premisership grounds and you know that you have local players working there hardest for the team instead of overpaid, over hyped pre-madonnas
