Reading the views and comments from the Bolton and Brighton fans, with regards to town and our lovely family club ;)

So come on, who do you have a soft spot for and who do you have a blatant disregard for???? (Outside of our local neighbours of course)

Town are my only true team, but i should imagine some town fan's have a premiership favorite as well.

That's where i differ because i have a soft spot for all the premiership teams, especially when they are playing foreign team's.

I can never understand, for example, a Man United fan wanting Liverpool to lose to a foreign team in Europe.

I'm a proud Englishman and could never wan't one of our team's to lose to the foreigner's ( not even Hull City ).

Mainly hate Liverpool and Man Utd, fedup of going anywhere around this Town and seeing Grimsby people with shirts on, bet most never even goto a match per season to watch them, bunch of phonys.

When Blackpool went into the Premiership I wanted them to stay up just to see a smaller club pull their own weight just like Wimbledon used to, it was quite funny seeing them beat Liverpool twice.

Hope QPR beat loads of big clubs just to show them up.  :P

Agree with that, as i don't support an premier league team i'd like to see any of the clubs in europe from England do well.

Soft spot- accrington Stanley, for the lifeline in the 09/10 season they gave us but it was not to be, Blackpool, for when they were in the premier league punching above their weight, still managed to play attractive football but man scum relegated them last day.

Disregard - man United, hate the fans except the ones that actually go regular, glory supporters, ferguson when he was there, I know he achieved a lot but never liked his personality, don't like scunny, or Lincoln but after last season I hate them even more for their dirty spoilsport tactics.

Yeah, to me though they are still deemed as a small club, 18,000 gates isn't that many.

I don't think any team apart from Darlington haven't seen a decent % increase in support with a new stadium.

I'm sure they will eventually build a 40,000 new stadium they will get a lot more support.  Looks really good.

Like Man City ...go on shoot me.

Been a fan since the 70's had a season ticket for about 10 years (Certainly during the Micky Lyons/Bobby Roberts era at Town) At one point was a bigger City fan than Town. As money has become increasingly crazy in the Greed is God premier league i would put Town first these days. Been a ST holder at BP for several years and only occasionally blow some ££ to watch Citeh. People go on about the money they have but to break into the monopoly at the top of the league you have to spend money. Like no-one has ever tried to buy success before?? If an owner with deep pockets wanted to invest in your team of course you would so no wouldn't you.

the people in charge are there for the long haul and are investing in the infrastructure of the club. They are putting lots of money into the the youth set up and into East Manchester. its not just about the first team.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2202858/Manchester-City-training-centre-Plans-revealed-100m-complex.html

Obviously Man U are top of my 'dislike' list along with Leeds- goes back to my school days when both had strong followings at my school.

My dad was from Fleetwood and was a Blackpool fan so i have a soft spot for both teams. Fleetwood ......another team people like to bash. Arent Town crying out for an Andy Pilley like character though?? .I'm going to be popular on here......might be some negs coming my way. Try to watch them both every season...in fact will be making the short trip to Glanford Park on Tuesday Iron against the Cods.

so City and Fleetwood..who else would stir up animosity....oh yes in Scotland my favs are Celtic. Obvioiusly cant stand 'Gers

I used to have a great regard for Liverpool in the 60's, 70's and 80's. They had a superb coaching staff with forward thinking plans as regards developing their future managers from the back room staff. I seem to recall the club was run by a local family with complete regard for the local fan base. Of course this all went t*ts up when all the big money came on the scene and I regard them with indifference like I do virtually all the Premiersh*t clubs.

No, no I wouldn't. I dislike any football club that spends beyond its means. People talk about how football has changed and how clubs are businesses. But that isn't true, they're charity cases and play things for the rich and I can't stand it and I can't bear to see lower league football fans (cognitive dissonance much?), or any football fans really being ok with it.

Football clubs are community assets and putting them in the debt of an individual or group is dangerous (familiar?).There are too many cases of chairman/consortiums being "in it for the long haul" only for them to intercourse the club over. In my ideal world all football clubs would be supporter-run, sustainably and ethically. Football is so far away from that that I pretty much don't give a shite about it anymore, Except wanting to see Town do well, as long as we try and do it properly, even if that sees us staying in the conference for an extended period.

Some will call me deluded. But I wouldn't sell out my principles even if it meant seeing Town win the Premier League.

I like Woking as I live here, also have a soft spot for Palace since I've moved down South never failed to have a good conversation about football with any of their fans.  Out of England I like Bordeaux as we go there quite a bit their new stadium looks incredible.

I dislike the standard Man United aka the Tesco's of football and Tranmere the way they celebrated when we were relegated at their place back in 03 I have never forgotten that.

West Ham has always been my team since I was at junior school, the only reason I chose the hammers was that the first football shirt I wore at that school was claret and blue, how stupid but it's true. Also I have a soft spot for Boston United as I lived there for 45 yrs and started supporting them when I packed up playing. After moving to Grimsby 6 yrs ago the most important team for me now is Town.
I lived in Peterborough for 7 yrs before coming up here but only went to London road once and that was to watch The Hammers play them in a cup match.Would never have supported Peterborough,can't stand that arrogant prat Fry.

I always find it interesting when people say we should all support English sides in Europe. When these English clubs with foreign owners, foreign managers and a team of foreign players (sometimes in their entirety) compete in the Champions League, the only English thing about them is the fans.

I always used to back English sides in Europe and probably generally do now still, but I'm less inclined to these days.

So come on, who do you have a soft spot for and who do you have a blatant disregard for???? (Outside of our local neighbours of course)


Dad was from Carlisle and Mum from Deptford so I always look out for Carlisle and Millwalls results. More than a few Town lads since the 70's have had the pleasure of meeting my Aunt Lill in Rotherhithe before Town games in South and East London.

I've a soft spot for Barnsley too due to an afternoon on the beer in the Yorkshireman boozer. Old bill advised us to move on as the 15-20 Barnsley lads had sussed us. One of their lads spoke to me in the toilet, said no problem as they knew we were all right and they were going on to somewhere else anyhow. On the next trip to the bar we found out they had left twenty notes for us to have a drink!! And that was when twenty notes was twenty notes. Sorry, but some people ooze class.

If disregard is code for hate the male masturbators, then Luton. And this goes back years and years. Always been a snidey bunch of 5 onto 1 cowards and I'm afraid for me the rep of the knuckle draggers that follow them rubs off on the club and town. Crap Wetherspoons too.

I always had a soft spot for Forest when I was younger because of Clough's amusing and outspoken style of management. They also played good football and I was a big fan of Des Walker as a player. For some reason, when I was quite young, I also quite liked Arsenal as well. No idea why that was the case - I have a (very) vague recollection of perhaps owning an Arsenal-style shirt when I was a kid though why I would have that I don't know. These days, I wouldn't wear any non-stripey shirt!

Disregard? Sunderland, without a doubt. I've never met a Mackem who wasn't a complete buffoon - they're like the Geordies but without the 'charm'. And yes, I'm being facetious when I say the Geordies have charm. Always remember some sharp object of a Sunderland fan trying to start a fight with me as I was out celebrating in Covent Garden after our play-off win back in the Buckley #II era! Put a right dampener on my night and I was very happy when Mendonca got his hat-trick the next day!

I had a soft sport for Hereford when they were non-league in 1972.  I was stationed there in the RAF.  Went to watch quite a few home games and some away games (Newport and Aston Villa in the Cup).  Hereford were good and famously beat Newcastle in a FA CUP replay at Edgar Street.

There is no long-term emotional attachment though like there is with Town.

Hate Liverpool. I hate the way they criticise other for having "no history". It's spectacularly arrogant and ignorant. Other clubs may not have many trophies in their past but unless you're talking about MK Dons, virtually every club has 100 years of history, generation after generation attending matches and going through all the same highs and lows.

Sunderland: USA 100%
Swansea City: 100% UK (Welsh)
Tottenham: 100% UK
West Brom: 100% UK
West Ham: 90% UK, 10% Iceland

Only the clubs in bold are majority from the UK, and this doesn't even begin to deal with the fact that majority foreign owned teams can and have fielded a completely foreign team. The majority of a team like Manchester United or Liverpool fans probably aren;t English either.

Me, I go to more Dulwich Hamlet games than Grimsby, but I wouldn't say I support them.

Don't like Leeds, because the year they went into the old First Division, when Don Revie was manager, we played them and not one player would give me an autograph, where'as all Northhampton players signed, the same year and they also went up.
Don't like West Ham because of the Tevez affair. Don't like Portmouth for being the only Premiership Club to refuse to help us and the Championship teams after the crash of the TV deal.
Also don't like Leicester as they went into administration, paid something like 20p in the pound, maybe less to their debtors and 6 weeks later, still had all their expensive players and started the new season in the "Crisp Bowl".
I do like any of the other teams, when they play well though, Man U included.

Over 6,000 signatures now for the petition!  That's around 1,800 new signatures within the last couple of weeks! lol (thumbup1)

Just doing the Canaries forums now, I'm aiming for 10,000 plus signatures and won't give up till I've got them.  8)


Cracking effort lad!

Fantastic continued efforts Nelly, as an idea, the clubs who won't let you post due the required 200 comments, can you write to their moderators and get them to put up the petition for you.

I like Gresley Rovers as the king once managed them to successive promotions.

Yeah on one of the Man Utd forums redcafe.net a moderator posted it on their main section, I'll have to go down this route, was unable to post on any of the Newcastle messageboards.

The Sunderland one the mods deleted the post after 24 hours, we was getting loads of signatures grr.   :(

Once i'm fully done, I'll post all the links up in the next few days so you can read the comments of what they have to say...

Reading the views and comments from the Bolton and Brighton fans, with regards to town and our lovely family club ;)

So come on, who do you have a soft spot for and who do you have a blatant disregard for???? (Outside of our local neighbours of course)


Do you have a link mate?

Hopefully Cleethorpes will beat them in the Cup.

Just started cracking on getting more petition signatures again tonight, finally got permission to post on Hull City forums, hopefully a few will. I've still got 30 teams to do on their main websites.

Flipping hell, probally one of the strictest forums - Leicester City!
