I would have to disagree with some earlier comments, I have always enjoyed being a neutral at football games. All through my Navy days, when in Plymouth, Home Park, when in Pompey, Fratton Park, when in Chatham, Gillingham (can't remember the name of their ground). Also, whilst at Chatham, a few of us would take the train to London and watch Charlton, West Ham, Arsenal and Tottenham. I followed Cov from about 1955 til mid 60's, then when I started courting, in Kettering, we used to watch Kettering Town. Having lived in Northampton for 40+ years, I and my son, my son in law and my wife supported Northampton Town, home and away. I did have to persuade my son in law to give up Anfield. I would believe that serious football fans should support the team where they live, or have lived.

Hang your head in shame Midland Red, or should that be Liverpool Red. You are from Cov like all of us. Your team is Cov. That's it, end off. I never understand people who are born here and decide to support another team because of some tenuous link to that city, town or whatever. Roll eyes

Living and working in "that city" - hardly tenuous And that support has (to date) lasted 45 - yes, forty-five - years (Our Rob was 2 years old then, by the way!) I went to Goodison the week before, I also tried Haig Avenue (Southport FC), and even Knotty Ash Stadium (Liverpool City RLFC) - nowt to compare with Anfield Pipe and smoke come to mind Happy
