Port Vale is a club based in Staffordshire and have a curious rivalry with Stoke City.  When I first got into football they had a Welsh striker called Andy Jones that would seemingly score for fun (like Steve Bull without the longevity).  Strangely no one ever seems to remember him.

Robbie Williams claims to be a supporter.

Sheffield Wednesday is a club that oozes tradition.  It is based in Yorkshire has a unique rivalry with its neighbours Sheffield United when really you would think they’d be more concerned with topping Leeds United.

For me they are the club that featured in Ripping Yarns.

Tranmere Rovers is the other club (the third club) from Liverpool.  They really are poor cousins of the big two but occasionally they do have spurts and flurries of exciting activity.  At times they can be an exciting proposition.
