    Quite flattered that I'm so important that it would sway who you chose to support. Also humoured at the possibility of what type of smack talk a "fan" of a team who last won the league in black and white and who haven't finished above us for 15 years could come up with. Suits you to the ground, deluded and destined to failure = perfect Spudz fan.

    BI can I ask why even before you knew much about football, you already had the ingrained ABU gene? I'd call that jumping on a bandwagon.

    Use any of your complex mathematical formula to see which club has the best chance to be taken over by a rich arab in the next 10 years.When they win European cup in 20 years you will be a contended man and will look back happily at the choices you have made in your life.

    or you can just choose any random team and pray to god every day that some rich guy buys that team, you get to cheer for a gun team without feeling the glory hunting guiltiness.

    Would of suggested West Ham, a year or so ago, but can't be arsed with their new owners. Fits all your criteria, and aren't deluded geordies or bitter saddoes (well a bit, but not in the same league as Spurs or Villa).

    The Academy 'n' all that crap. Oh and it's a good suck up to the boss here......

    How did I end up supporting Inter, well I never liked AC Milan and Juventus, and then at the time (this would be a good 7/8 years ago), my Italian was non existent, so it would make it tricky reading a club's website that wasn't in English. Always had a soft spot for Hellas Verona because of that certain book.

    It sounds stupid, and it probably does make me a bandwagon jumper.

    every year i support a different club (ofcourse big name club) well I like football but I don't have emotional attachment with any team so I feel this is the best option allows me to follow different leagues every year.

    For the past 5 years I have supported the team that won the champions league so this year I will support Inter might sound stupid but hey its fun for me.

    I still don't see it, Barcelona/Man Utd are some of the clubs with a genuinely worldwide presence. You don't achieve that by being crap. Even watching a game and seeing 80,000 at the Nou Camp might've made it obvious.
    Never actually watched them before I decided I would pick them. Also, was a provisional thing, wasn't actually a fan just decided I would give them a chance. Beckham left but I figured I'd watch anyway for the crazy manager who flung a boot at him. Was the 4-0 v Bolton and the Community Shield with Arsenal that made me stick. Was then I realised they were a massive team but already picked them.

    as i said i watched the Barcelona game in 94 But i started watching live EPL only in 2000 (that's the time we took cable connection in our home) by that time i had seen and read about lot of European games and if i am correct united had won lot of trophies in 99
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    Well, I have to support the Philadelphia Union. Not really excited about watching MLS though - and I have a feeling MLS is probably harder to find on TV than EPL.
