      Soft spot for AC Milan and Celtic for the class act by their fans in 89

      And obviously Barca.

      Was fascinated by Madrid in the late 90's and early 2000's, they were just so glamourous. Now I can't really stand them and lost all interest after my favourite player Zidane retired!

      Never been a fan of other country's football unless we we're playing them in Europe !
      My 'other' teams in the uk are;
      Barnsley (my local side whilst growning up)
      Coventry (nearest top flight team to my place of birth)
      Exeter City (Wifes/boss's team)

      Putting the boot on the other foot,my most hated teams have always been The Mancs and Leeds (from the 70's when they we're are closest rivals !)

      Poland - Gornik Zabrze (First polish team I ever saw)

      Italy - Napoli (Maradona and now Rafa)

      Serie A: Fiorentina, because of Edmundo and I think Florence is a beautiful city!
      La Liga: none
      Bundesliga: Borussia Dortmund, really fun to watch and their supporters are awesome.
      Ligue 1: don't watch it
      SPL: don't watch it.

      Serie A - Inter Milan - Always had a soft spot for Inter, brilliant club and history!

      La Liga - Barcelona - Barca fans always seemed to like LFC and our fans especially in the 06 Champions League when they were drinking in The Cavern singing The Beatles songs and chanting Liverpool at the match. Great supporters, and a brilliant team aswell. Messi is just unbelievable.

      Ligue1 - PSG - Love Paris as a city! Hopefully I will live their one day, always like PSG not a "gloryhunter" by the way just think it's a fantastic club, they have a great squad, great supporters and also a great history. Always followed PSG see how they are getting on, hopefully they lift the Ligue1 this season!

      German league - Borussia Mƶnchengladbach - Easily my second favourite club behind Liverpool! The European cup final back in 1977 will always be a classic and will be in our history forever! The gesture they made for the Hillsborough charity and families will stay with me forever also and donating 21000 Deutsch Marks for the Hillsborough families will never be forgotten on Merseyside. The Gladbach supporters also make a trip to Anfield every year and Liverpool supporters also go to Gladbach to visit. Liverpool & Gladbach will always have a special relationship and friendship and I cannot thank them for their support for Hillsborough. Favourite club in Germany, hopefully they win the league this season or qualify for Europe so we can have our European games with them.
       
      Scottish PL - Celtic - My roots! My heritage! My dad bought me a Celtic kit when I was younger because we are from Irish Catholic heritage so as a kid I always said I supported 2 teams, Liverpool & Celtic. I also had a half and half Liverpool & Celtic hat I wore to games and a scarf.

      Serie A - Napoli for Rafa and Udinese for Di Natale and I'm a fan of Guidolin who is crazy.

      La Liga - Atletico Madrid. Don't like the top two and Atletico have a habit for producing quality players. Plus I like Diego Simeone. 

      Germany - No one really just like watching the league. Probably Leverkusen for Sami.

      France - Barely watch it but look out for Nice's results for Red5man.

      Aussie A league - Wanderers!

      I can't say I actively follow even the results of any team outside of England apart from Irish Premier League - Portadown F.C. but, for the fun of it,I'll play along.

      Serie A - Inter

      La Liga - Barca

      Eredivisie - Ajax

      Ligue1 - Saint Etienne

      Bundesliga - Borussia Monchengladbach

      Scottish PL - none, no time for the bitter antics of any of the ugly sisters in poor competition.

      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 CoruƱa 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.


      Very well put.

      Liverpool are the only club that can bother me and affect my mood and day. I've had a few allegiances over the years though.

      France: I liked Marseille a bit because Chris Waddle went there back when it was a lot more rare for English players to go abroad and I liked their white and light blue kit. When Gerard Houllier took over at Lyon though I swapped allegiances and dropped Marseille without a second thought. If they got back to the top now though I'd swap back and probably tell everybody that I've followed them since the Waddle days.

      Italy: The first allegiance I had was with Juventus and was all started by Ian Rush going there and then enhanced once the 1990 World Cup had finished and this player that I had been mesmerized by, Roberto Baggio, was a Juventus player. Then there was Zinedine Zidane but by that time I knew about the respect shown by Baggio to Fiorentina where Juventus had signed him from. It was from learning that that then made me look and take more notice of Gabriel Batistuta. I then liked Fiorentina because of him and his reluctance to leave them in the hope of landing them a Scudetto in spite of the many, many offers from the World's elite football clubs, the statue that the supporters had erected behind the goal and the nickname 'Batigol'. He is still for me the best striker there has ever been. In my lifetime anyway. Then, in 2002, I had an excellent Summer on Championship Manager with Roma and my star player on that and in real life up until he retired was Francesco Totti who was awesome and they'd only gone and signed Batistuta from Fiorentina and then won a Serie A title a year or two before. I was a Roma 'fan' for years. Nowadays, whilst taking those three allegiances into account and the legends that I have loved at all three clubs, its a tough decision but it's only natural that I'm a Napoli man now isn't it? 'Johnny Come Lately' since Rafa went there? Of course not! Loved them ever since Maradona was there ;)

      Spain: I was a Real Sociedad man because of John Aldridge back in the day and didn't he do well there? 40 in 75 apparently. Since then I've admired Barcelona but liked Real Madrid more because of Macmanaman, Owen and Alonso for the Liverpool connection and the whole Galactico thing with Zidane, Figo, Ronaldo (old one) and Roberto Carlos. Nowadays I'm not fussed and just try to enjoy any football that I see from La Liga but I think I could go totally bandit on Real and start liking Atletico Madrid but they'll need to win something before they get my 'support'.

      Serie A: obviously AC Milan ;) Roma is the only top team I appreciate from the other ones. I hope they'll win their 4th title this year.
      EPL: Liverpool. The Kop singing YNWA is a first great reason. The passion of Liverpool fans is incredible and I've always loved Gerrard.
      La Liga: Sevilla. I love the city, I lived there 6 months on Erasmus. There's also a twinning between Sevilla and AC Milan
      Ligue1: PSG. I love Ibrahimovic and Verratti, in my opinion one of the strongest young midfielders in the world.
      German league: Borussia Dortmund. They've beaten Juve in the Champions League final in 1997 ;D I love fans and their games are almost always entertaining.
      Scottish PL: Rangers Glasgow. Gattuso played for them. More than enough!
