'Otherwise I really can't see the point, here on a cycling forum and all. There are plenty of other sites where the hooligan language is welcomed'.
You seem to have single-handedly transposed your opinion into a fact, perhaps your steer to football lingo is slightly off the mark, i seem to remember you being down that road once before
'Premiership clubs are generally constituted of a disparate group of players, some international, some from all over the UK and some 'local', who would be as happy playing for any club as long as the money is there.
When you look at the clubs as a business from top down they often have international or non local investors/owners/chairmen/board members/managers and coaching staff.
Where is the logic in standing them up as totems of some ancient inter town/city rivalries?'
You do sound like an non football person flyer....so i'll make it real simple....all your waxing-on above missed the fan/supporter, people come and go, fans get served shite, the megastars are simply the gravy.
Talking of hoolies, fancy chucking the david carradine.....and missing....what a prick
