good thread Nater.
Where do I begin......Id be a bit weary about using the term support for some of the following teams because I may not know every player, own their jersey, have been to a game or even know if they won last Saturday........but I sure 'follow'/'support' a fair few teams.
Im a big Republic of Ireland
supporter and go to a lot of the games. We had some good days back in the early 90's and Keano is my hero. Im still confident of good times ahead
were the first team I ever supported back in the 80's and have loved them ever since. I still have a jersey from the early 90's with Romario on the back.
I also follow Juventus
in Italy (Baggio was the man)
in Irealnd though I wouldnt be a match goer.
in France. Ive seen them a few times and even saw Makalele playing for them. They were relegated last season :-(
When Ireland arent in any major Championships which now seems more common than it used to be then France
is the team I support. they have some great players and I was in France when they won the '98 World Cup. The reason for this is because I am half French( but 100% Irish if ya get me). My godfather is also close friends with Marcel Desailly, which is pretty cool.
I also support Celtic
and have done for years like nearly EVERY Irish person. Watching Larsson playing for them was a joyous experience. I was delighted Keano went there, even if it was for a short time.
My second team in England is Sunderland
for the obvious reasons of Keano and the big irish influence at the club. i look for ALL their results and check their website daily. What they did last season was just unbelievable and I just pray to the Gods that they stay up this season. Its starnge cos when Mick McCarthy was there I was hoping they would lose EVERY game lol.
I also look for some other teams results for various reasons (usually United related) like MK Dons, Peterborough, Notts Forest, Hartlepool(cos of Jeff lol) and Accrington Stanley (who are they.......Exxxaccctly)
and who doesnt love the Samba boys from Brazil
