  • The teams I'd pick are first

    Newcastle - Sunderland
    Spurs - Arsenal
    Bristol City - Rovers
    United - Wednesday
    Forest - Derby

    I'd add

    Rangers - Celtic
    Everton - Liverpool
    Norwich - Ipswich
    Swansea - Cardiff
    Brighton - Palace
    Brentford - QPR

    Dont give a toss about

    Man Utd / Man City
    Chelsea / West Ham
    Aston Villa / Birmingham
  • (I'm sure there are many in the opposite boat!)
  • That's also fair, and yeah it'd be nice if Aberdeen or someone won the title
  • Don't really care about many other teams apart from our own. Will support whichever side is doing well / need the points / will do us a favour / will send the Palarse or Millwall down.

    I'm not a Protestant or a Catholic so really don't care what the Jocks do
  • Oh - Villa over Birmingham is the only one I feel much about in England
  • Arsenal over Spurs
    Rangers over Celtic
    Sunderland over N'castle
    Brighton over Palace
    Man U over Liverpool
    Watford over Luton
    Cambridge over Posh
    Atletico over Real
    Sevilla over Betis
    Valencia over Levante

    In West London derbies, I'd back whichever one of the other three that Chelsea are playing

    Spurs over Arsenal
    Celtic over Rangers
    Swindon over Oxford

    Atletico over Real
    Espanyol over Barcelona
    Betis over Sevilla

    Slavia Prague over Sparta

    Comunicaciones over Municipal (Guatemala City, where wife is from: her family are big fans of Las Cremas)
  • Oh, Spurs over Arsenal goes without saying, it's implicit in the fixture
  • What tends to happen with me in derbies is I sort of root for one team to start with but when they score, I start rooting for the other team. I suppose this means that I don't really care.
  • Millwall>Palace if we're counting the latter as London and not Surrey

    Would never pick a side for that Derby

    All I ever hope for is that a big sink hole will appear halfway through the match ridding us of their existences ;)
  • Everton over Liverpool
    Sunderland over Newcastle
    Southampton over Portsmouth
    Athletico over Real

    Don't think there are any others I care about

    Always pick Celtic over Rangers as it seems to irritate the right sort of people

    Protestants? Weird.
  • Newcastle strong preference over Sunderland
    Like both Spurs and Arsenal
    Don't care about Bristol Rovers and Bristol City
    Sheff United over Wednesday
    Mild preference for Forest over Derby
  • Hearts over Hibs

    Welling over Charlton (sorry, but really struggled to think of a rival you have :wink: )

    Would have thought the only non-Millwall related local derby you'd take an interest in would be C-Wing against D-Wing at the Scrubs.

    Mind you, I suppose that is a Millwall-related derby really, what with it effectively being Millwall against Millwall.
    Which fine institute of her majesty were the Charlton train chanting racists sent to?

    I'm sure we could both cobble together a best XI :wink:
    We could "cobble together a best XI". You lot generally have enough on holiday at the same time for a youth academy, an U23 side, a 'B' team and a first team squad.
  • There is only one El Classico


    Biggleswade Town v Biggleswade United.
