Charlton (Wright, Tees, Green and Mendonca plus that fantastic old terrace at the original Valley)

Fulham ('little' London club, traditional and a great, proper ground)

Leyton Orient (as per Fulham)

Hartlepool United (traditional club with the 'application for re-election' record!)

Overseas clubs Feynoord and Sparta Rotterdam

Aldershot and Woking as I spent most of my Army career in that area.

Even got to go to a few games as well - especially when Town visited.

Probably more of a southern bias because of where I've lived all my adult life.

Hampton & Richmond Borough - lived in Hampton for several years and got to quite a lot of the games. Friendly folk, could have (proper) beer on the terrace, nice to be able to walk to a game. And because you can shout 'cum on you Beavers!'  

Kingstonian - (formerly) local to me. Cool shirts despite the Donny look. 3 fish on their shirt too. A throwback to when Kingston was a town in its own right with industries like Hawker and Sopwith.

AFC Wimbledon because of the history of their (re)formation and I have the memory of that inaugural game against Sutton when 6,000 people packed into Gander Green Lane for a pre-season friendly, a genuinely hairs on the back of the neck moment. Being cheered for being a Town fan was nice too (to be fair they cheered everyone who came in wearing another club's shirt).

Honourable mentions for: Clough era Forest; Brentford (the Grimsby of London, always great to see Town at Griffin Park, bussable journey); Woking (the most civilised club bar queue in the world); Exeter (fan-owned success); Sarfend (the Grimsby of Essex, many a good Town game there); Clee Town (gotta be good for NEL to have a club like that).

Feynoord because I lived in Rotterdam for a few years and they became my adopted club. Wolves because of family being from there so half my family supports them.... And they have a cool badge and kit.

My old man was a Spurs fan when he was alive, I don’t follow them in any shape or form and enjoyed winding him up when we beat them 1-0 but I always look out for their result and happy to see them doing so well this year.
