      Don't really follow any other club.

      But always had a soft spot for Napoli and Dortmund.

      Norway's Eliteserien: Molde
      La Liga: Don't really follow any of them but do like how Barcelona play and love Barcelona as a city
      Serie A: No strong opinion, probably Napoli now that Rafa is there.
      Bundesliga: Bayern Munich, again mostly because I like Munich as city and also their festivals involving beer :-)

      Always had a soft spot for Atletico, a load of my favourite players have played for them. Nice to see them regularly challenging in the cups in recent years.

      Bit of a soft spot for Celtic as well - especially in Europe.

      Serie A - AC Milan/Torino - love Italian football for its rich and turbulent culture, its players and most of all its history.
      La Liga - don't really have a favourite team here although like heimdall says I think Barca are just fabulous!
      Ligue 1 - No one in particular. I quite like Marseille and Lyon.
      Bundesliga - Definitely Borussia Dortmund. J├╝rgen Klopp and his merry men are just an absolute joy. Lit up Europe and Germany by outsmarting everyone. As present day models, their means of success are the template and not these disgusting sugar daddy/filthy oil rich scum (looking at you Chelsea, Man City and PSG).
      Scotland - No one in particular. I love seeing any team bar Hearts and Aberdeen taking on the big one (Celtic....not Rangers!). Although having lived in Glasgow, Celtic are a team I have a soft spot for. Really enjoying Inverness's fantastic start to the season under Terry Butcher. The Highland derby between Ross County and Inverness Caley Thistle is a fantastic match as well even if the standard of football is generally appalling.

      Nothing that sticks year on year other than Celtic (my brother and dad were fans - crossing sectarian grounds which was unusual where I grew up!) and Tenerife (my favourite holiday - great atmosphere at the games).

      Will be looking out for Napoli this season.

      To be clear these are not second teams - the ressies are my 2nd team!

      Milan and Napoli now that Rafa's there.
      Barca cause they just ooze quality and I love Messi.
      Nobody in France.
      Dortmund, like how their whole club is setup and they have a great team.
      Don't care about Scotland.

      Like Scotia said, I don't support these teams, just the teams I'd be in Fifa/Football Manager  ;D

      Serie A - Napoli
      La Liga - Barca and Atletico
      Ligue1 - Montpellier
      German league - Dortmund because the first LFC game I ever went to was against them in the Champions League, won 2-0 thanks to Smicer and Wright
      Scottish PL - Hearts

      Serie A - No one Not interested in Italian football at all. Used to watch it on Ch4, had no favorites then.
      La Liga - No one Over glamorised. 2 dominate teams do not make a league. If it was not on Sky would anyone be interested?
      Ligue1 - St Etienne 1977 and all that!
      Fu├čball-Bundesliga - Borussia M├Ânchengladbach 1977 again!
      Scottish PL - No one Used to follow Celtic, but all that sectarian sh*t pisses me off.

      Ajax
      Barcelona

      Love the youth systems at both clubs.
      Investing in the future.

      When I was a kid I loved Madrid as they were Ferrari-esque in their stature.

      Growing older now, I'm more settled in following one club, Liverpool.
      The money and politics, much like F1, has made me weary of it.

      Haven't got any other favourite clubs. I will admit to having a soft spot for Swindon Town, but that's more down to good memories from my childhood with my dearly missed Grandad and my Uncle, a bitter blue, but I love him anyway.

      Nice in France now that I'm working with the club.

      Club Brugge as it's me child club in Belgium.

      A small club in USA called Orlando City as I enjoyed my time.

      Gladbach because they've got strong ties with LFC.

      Nothing comparable to the affection I have for Liverpool Football club though

      I have a tendency to taking sides at every sporting contest I watch, so I naturally pick clubs to "support" everywhere, but it doesn't mean I actually have any sentiments towards them - often the choice is made for peculiar reasons (like a beautiful uniform, a specific player, and so on) and they change over time.

      In Spain, I say I like Deportivo La Coru├▒a cause a part of my family comes from Galicia. In truth, I hardly ever watch them... I much prefer watching Barcelona (in the late 90s and early 00s, I loved watching Real Madrid).

      In Italy, I've changed sides a few times. Right now my favorite side is Napoli because Rafa is there.

      In Germany, I always preferred Schalke for some reason, but I also quite like Dortmund, even though they're bitter rivals and hate each other :D

      My favorite Scottish side is Hibernian. The Celtic/Rangers divide is boring - Hibs offer a more likeable alternative.

      Not a big follower of French football, don't think I've picked any sides there. Never liked Lyon though.

      I like Feyenoord in Holland, mostly due to Dirk Kuyt. I also got their shirt which I think is awesome.

      Don't really follow any other leagues.

      The other team I normally follow is FC Barcelona mainly because I love the philosophy they have instilled in the club. One touch football for me is a skill and to play with brains is what I find very interesting instead of the strength and athleticism side.

      To produce world class players small (Messi, Iniesta, Xavi, Fabregas ..) in size and to compensate that with the skill and brains ... is something else. Also I think they were the first club to have all 11 players on the pitch, from their academy.

      Some of their tiki taka is crazy as well. Free flowing, one touch passing and movement. Goals like Messi-Pedro combo vs Villareal or Iniesta-Messi vs Viktoria Plzen excites me, ;D. Also, love the city when I visited there.

      However, I will always want Liverpool to beat them if they ever meet, though.

      Just teams I look out for, or enjoy watching more than anything.


      Serie A - Growing up watching Jimbo on C4, I loved Totti, so it was Roma. Last year I looked out for Fiorentina a bit, have some nice players there. I like Balotelli & SES so try have a look for Milan too. 
      La Liga - Was Barca growing up, Rivaldo mainly. Liked them while Madrid were on top. Not so much now. Atletico recently & this season Almeria of course.
      Ligue1 - PSG is about it.
      German league - BVB. Have liked them a few years. The time of Sahin & Kagawa I tried to watch highlights or whatever. It wasn't as accessible then.
      Scottish PL - Even being Irish, and as controversial as it is, I don't have time for the big too. Celtic included. Don't see the whole religion thing being in football. Tried watching a Hearts game last year just for Ngoo. It was tough!

      SPL:  Celtic
      La Liga: Barca- Mostly because of Messi. Watching him play is like watching perfection.

      Serie A: I dont watch Serie A because I dont trust it. Too much scandal, too many clubs getting busted for rigging matches, players bribed, refs bribed....etc.

      Ligue 1: PSG.  I like Ibra.
       
      Bundesliga:  Bayern.  I like Robben. A lot of people hate him but he is a machine on the field, he is so determined and one of the best in the world, imo.  I also like their stadium. Allianz is very cool.

      I will say I love Spain. On an International level, what they have done over the last 6 years is amazing. WC winners and 2 European Championships. They were just so dominant. They are the best, all around Football club I have ever seen play.
