Middlesborough are a strange team from up North. I once saw Dalian Atkinson of Ipswich Town tear through one of their greatest teams (Gary Pallister et al) and score a miraculous hat-trick that came from what appeared to be superhuman powers.

This is a club relatively close to where I live and when I was younger my dad and I actually had season tickets to the club for a couple of seasons. During that time I found myself watching the most lacklustre football club I have ever come into contact with as they floundered around the second tier of football seemingly without a hope of ever bettering their possession and yet the supporters surrounding me appeared to consider the club they were watching to still be the same house that Bobby Robson built. For me the club only stinks of arrogance.

Really, is anyone at the club really proud of being known as “The Tractor Boys”?

Arsenal is an obnoxious club from London that appears to experience waves of success.

Everton are the other club from Merseyside and supposedly the arch foes of Liverpool.

I cannot understand why anyone in the South of England would support this club.

There are two clubs in Bristol. Bristol Rovers is the ugly sister.

Over the years I have had the misfortune to come across a number of Chelsea supporters and never once have any of them possessed anything remotely resembling charisma or personality despite the possession on their part of rampant egos and an inkling of talent. The most recent and despicable example of this being a gentleman from Tunbridge Wells that looked like Danny Devito.

Situated in a more affluent partition of London, we are now well into the Roman-era of Chelsea and football in general. With his Russian currency Abramovich has truly upped the money grabbing culture of football even further at a time when it was already inflated and a true false economy. At one point it looked like the bubble would burst for football but now with live in a world and reality that the teams at the top will always have these types to bail them out if so required.

Chelsea were the first club to charge over £1000 for a season ticket.

It is perhaps not the best thing in the world when your club is most famous for its associates with Barry Fry.

Currently Peterborough are a serious consideration at their level for having Darren Ferguson (Alex Ferguson’s son) as their manager.

Blackburn Rovers is a football club situated up North. They won the league once.
