    Before most of ours time, and unfortunately there's the rub. All the time during my yoof (it wasn't spelt like that then), they were the meedja (see above) darlings, They spent more than most teams too. Also always had glory hunters, and people must remember back then the Cup meant something, so despite protestations of lean years, they wern't for your average glory-hound. Which is another thing that annoys me about saying how they supported them through the "hard times", as an Exeter City fan I'm always crying my heart out at this.

    Oh if I was voting on the past anyway, I'd probably give the Hammers 4, but I'm voting on the Football club now, and mark down Arsenal for the GG years..

    Manchester United- 5. I wasn't aware of how socially unacceptable supporting United would be at the age of three.
    Manchester City- 2. I'd have hated them more if they were this good when I was little but meh. David Silva.
    Liverpool- 1. Hated them more when they were better. Definitely the team I'd least like to win something, though.
    Newcastle- 2. Unbearable fans but the current crop of players is a little hard to dislike.
    Arsenal- 0. Quite like a lot of their players but they have a tendency to whine like little bitches all the time about the other teams playing too rough. Also, only Arsenal could steal Barca's best youth player, get five years of incredible quality out of him then sell him back for 30m and still act like they were the victims.
    Chelsea- 0. Comically evil football club, owned by the Russian mafia and constantly being racist/cheating on their wives/shooting interns.
    Tottenham- 4. Awesome to watch lately. Chock-full of likable footballers.
    Norwich- 3.
    Aston Villa- 1. Alex McLeish.
    Swansea- 4. Playing some good stuff and I haven't yet met their fans.
    Stoke- 2. I honestly quite like having them around, it's always interesting to see how teams do against them. Would hardly support them against anyone else though.
    Queen's Park Rangers- 0. Neil Warnock.
    West Brom- 3
    Sunderland- 2
    Fulham- 3
    Everton- 3
    Wolves- 1
    Blackburn- 1
    Bolton- 2
    Wigan- 4. Like their manager and play some nice stuff for such a dire team. Also don't have any fans to be annoyed by.
    Leeds United- 0. **** off Leeds.
    Nottingham Forest- 3.
    Sheffield Wednesday- 3.
    West Ham- 2.

    Reckon there's a strong correlation between variance in responses and quality of the team.

    Haha. They're more there to reflect how much I like some teams over others.

    They were enormously hated in the 1990s, so I'm assuming the hatred had to have stemmed from before that - I doubt hatred of that magnitude could just have been born the minute they started being successful.

    Manchester United - 4 - yeah, everyone hates them, and while I'm no particular fan of them, I can't help but admire the way that Alex Ferguson has stayed consistently successful since I've been watching football. Plus, they've at least played entertaining football
    Manchester City - 3 - used to quite like them in a cult sort of way when they has Rosler and Kinkladze. Can't quite bring myself to hate them in the way I hate Chelsea, but I'm no fan of the way they're going about topping the table.
    Liverpool - 0 - delusional fans with a persecution/victim complex, stuck in the past, Jamie Carragher, that hideous club anthem - I get enough of that from the tramps who support Celtic thanks. The day they were knocked off their perch was a glorious one.
    Newcastle - 1 - delusional mongo fans. Used to be quite cult until they signed that **** Shearer.
    Arsenal - 5 - props to Wenger for not selling his soul, as frustrating as it can be sometimes.
    Chelsea - 0 - **** small time club who struck it lucky with a dodgy Russian billionaire. Spawned the career of John Terry and played a huge role in Jose Mourinho disappearing up his own arse. Worst club.
    Tottenham - 0 - **** club, **** players, worse manager.
    Norwich - 1 - Tainted by that prick Chris Sutton. Paul Lambert impersonating Martin O'Neill on the touchline makes them easy to hate.
    Aston Villa - 0 - Tainted by Martin O'Neill
    Swansea - 3 - I think the nicest thing I could say about them is that they aren't Cardiff. Their 3 points are largely on the basis that I've given out enough 0s. And because the next team is...
    Stoke - 0 - **** of a manager (tracksuit and baseball cap in public is never an acceptable look), don't play anything that even begins to resemble football. Wish they'd get relegated.
    Queen's Park Rangers - 1 - used to be cult in the early 90s. Sadly their revival means that I have to put up with that **** Neil Warnock.
    West Brom - 3 - Best club in the Birmingham area (which I believe is the dictionary definition of "damning with faint praise")
    Sunderland - 3 - Ally McCoist played for them, so they're ok in my book.
    Fulham - 3 - probably my favourite Premiership ground
    Everton - 4 - plenty of Rangers connections as I've grown up, gave good old Drunken Disorderly a platform to show his genius, aren't Liverpool. What's not to like?
    Wolves - 2 - a nothing club who I'll downgrade anyway because they employ that pillock Mick McCarthy.
    Blackburn - 1 - saved from a 0 because their current plight is utterly hilarious.
    Bolton - 0 - tainted by Fat Sam, lose points because they became media darlings for apparently playing great football under Owen Coyle despite their main tactic still being "lump it up to that prick Davies and feed on the second ball assuming the tit hasn't fouled the defender."
    Wigan - 2 - a completely nothing club
    Leeds United - 0 - **** off Leeds. Their continued plight out of the top flight amuses me.
    Nottingham Forest - 3 - my only real memory of them is getting arse-blasted 5-1 by Bayern Munich in the 1995/96 UEFA Cup. Bonus points for taking Pierre van Hooijdonk from Celtic in the midst of our charge for 9 in a row.
    Sheffield Wednesday - 3 - who gives a ****?
    West Ham - 2 - would have been a 3 were it not for their Olympic Stadium carry on. Haven't yet been tainted by Allardyce for long enough to merit a 0.

    Pfft, why did you come up with that bumph for manure, when it could have just said, "Fergie played for Rangers", or the Pool stuff which could have said " I hate Dalglish because he was twice the player of any Rangers bloke"
