    Leeds United even though they've been relegated. My father is from Leeds and I always support my 'home side'. At least that's the English league level. Internationally it would have to be New Zealand -> England -> Australia -> Scotland -> Ireland -> Germany in that order or anyone playing France and/or Brazil. If Brazil and France are playing I cheer for the ref.

    The simple answer is cause me dad supports Liverpool, and I've supported them all my life, and I get a season ticket every year and try and get to as many games as I can. The first Subbuteo team I ever bought was Everton, the first I ceremoniously burnt was Manchester Utd.

    I once said I 'support' Feyenoord (I live near Rotterdam), and I'll stick with that, but the only player I could name has recently left the club for Liverpool.

    Subbuteo is/was a football game where you flick the little plastic players across a little canvas pitch... yes, it was as **** as it sounds!

    My team is Chesterfield FC. I go to most of the games (except the long away trips) and have a season ticket. I've supported them all my life through thick and thick (we have no thin). I always will do. We're **** but we're the Town!

    I don't watch much Premiership, but the team I do look out for are Spurs. Simply because they are one of few clubs who are willing to take risks on good young English players from the lower leagues.

    And obviously England internationally.

    I have a soft spot for West Ham.
    How unnatural is that? Liking both Spurs and the Hammers... I'd get murdered by both!

    I'm glad you don't have a soft spot for Millwall Barmy, that would have been really bad. :shake:

    A woman after my own heart! And one that watches football to boot! The only time my wife has any interest in football games is when she points out how one of the players has a "cute butt" and I'm still confused as to how one determines that any man's butt could possibly be cute. But I digress...

    Olympiakos because my father is a supporter, so naturally I have become one too. The same will happen with my children, firstly they will learn to say Olympiakos and afterwards mom and dad :D .

    Blackburn Rovers. I have been suporting them since 91 I think. They even won the premier league once :) One of only 4 teams who has managed to do so. Not bad for a small club.

    Internationally, it's Italy -> Germany -> Sweden -> Ireland -> Whoever face France

    Clubs, it's Elfsborg IF -> Fiorentina -> Brescia -> AC Milan -> Juventus

    As you can see, the bribing scandal tore me up inside. :(
