Blackpool is a club that plays in orange.  Fail.

When I first got into football something weird happened: Coventry City won the FA Cup by beating Tottenham Hotspur.  Now this was not a club that should be achieving such feats and realistically they aren’t likely to ever do it again.  It was a freak moment and an exciting one all the same.  The victory even prompted one of my best friends at school to support them.  It was also around this time that their goalkeeper Steve Ogrizovic became the first keeper I had ever heard of to score.  How awesome was this team?

Away from that, there only other claim to fame is their association with Jimmy Hill.

Hull City is an odd football club.  Their nickname is The Tigers and for years they bounced about the lower leagues much like a harmless little brother.  Then suddenly they wound up in the top flight and they grew something of a head.

At one point Jan Molby was their manager.

Bristol City is one of those clubs stuck in the sticks that have a strange rivalry with close neighbours (Bristol Rovers) that no one else in the country gives a flying fuck about.
