This was my predicament.

However, there are shitloads of London clubs.


Just noticed this. If you don't have a local club then I'd say it's pretty much a free-for-all. It's probably easier to get to London than, say, Gillingham. At least you didn't choose Cripple Palace. :P

The most misguided 'glory hunter' I know of is a bloke from Southend who started supporting the Albion when we last won the FA Cup in 1968. Oops!

Everybody has a local club. Just most people are pussies who think they're too good to follow a non-league team.

Chelsea fan, bit embarrassing these days on occasion but never mind. Technically Kingstonian were slightly nearer and have watched them a fair bit but was always gonna support cfc as my old man took me every week from when I was about 8 (and we were shite). Prob only get down to about 8-10 games a season nowadays though.

Graham Fenton was class when we had him on loan in the mid-90s. Then he vanished.

Haha it's refreshing to meet a Liverpool fan who's realistic for a change. I like Liverpool's style of play to be honest when they beat us in the league cup games i was thoroughly impressed by them and have been whenever else i've seen them play in other games.
