I for one, wouldn't mind you lot winning the league but I'd prefer this order:

Citeh - Their fans are idiots and are still in the amazed and grateful phase. fair one
Chelsea - They don't annoy me, Mourinho is cool as **** and him winning is just a fun thing to see.
United - Meh, they can't get any more disinterested with winning the league, so let them have it.
Arsenal - I reckon the fans deserve it on the whole but might get a bit annoying, especially because they're all a bit weird.
Liverpool - DEAR ****ING CHRIST PLEASE DONT LET THEM WIN THE LEAGUE WE WILL NEVER HEAR THE END OF IT FROM THEIR DELUDED, SPASTIC FAITHFUL.
What about Tottingham?

Sorry mate, I meant to say Citeh fans AREN'T idiots. I've not me a complete cunny from your lot yet.

Spurs?

I like Spuds, always have. Apart from when they took Glenn Hoddle and murdered Dean Richards.

But, their fans are becoming dangerously close to the deluded Arsenal fans. A title wouldn't help them.

In order for that to happen, they'd have to be a unified 'UK' league system as well. I can't see that being received positively since you'd see three countries with teams now in 'premier leagues' have teams drop to the second tier and below.

In the case of most NI teams (apart from maybe Linfield who are 4th tier quality on a good day), they'd all drop to below the Conference

For ****'s sake, I'm so tired of being denied the opportunity to enjoy my team's successes without being lumped in with that crowd. With the best will in the world, you'd be more insufferable if Southampton won than I would if Liverpool did. I'd be prepared to put money on that

It's all academic anyway, as Moyes will pull an end-of-season winning streak out of his arse (or at least, SAF will whisper in his ear how to do it anyway ...)

**** it. Anyone. But. Chelsea.

That's my mantra

Agreed. I don't see the Scotttish, Welsh and NI FA's wanting to give up power either!

What happened to the old 'Come back when you've won 19' banner?

Actually, I won't lie, it's been nice to have Liverpool battling it out with the Arse for 1st place. It's like 1990 again.

Amen to that. Every club has ***** for fans. Granted they seemed to have guffed out of the woodwork lately for mine in excess. But I've met plenty of Manure fans who think God himself shit out Old Trafford, and Citeh fans that so betrayed any football principles at all that they adored Tevez despite him wanking rudely into their faces and then rubbing it in. Good Lord this utter pair of twunts who I used to work with in Britain were the epitome of arsehole Manure fans. Added in to that pish was that usual biased fan twattery wherein they really didn't think Roy Keane should have been sent off for crippling Alfe Inge Haaland. Then years later I had to stare into the faces of deluded pillocks who genuinely think that the FA en masse have a vendetta against pure, saintly Luis Suarez because he's just soo good and they're all secret Manure fans.

But yeah - Chelsea fans are ****ing annoying.

Part of footie, I suppose - shitty fans and glory hunters spoiling everyone's fun.

I'm a football fan first, Liverpool just happen to be the team I like in England. I also like teams in the NI leagues that nobody on here likely gives a shit about but one of them has won more league titles than Liverpool and Man U put together

The last team fans of Linfield would want to be compared to is Celtic

Not sure if it is just because they (along with Glentoran, another Belfast club who have won 23 league titles themselves) are one of the oldest teams in the league, and other teams who might have won as many titles, or stolen some of theirs anyway have either disbanded or merged with other clubs.

You are right about the present time but we have only sent 2 squads consisting entirely of English players playing in England to the World Cup since 1970 ........... 1998 and 2010.

No, I'm not. I don't know how it is for the Jocks or the Taffs but back in NI, while support for the local teams can be fierce; Scottish teams notwithstanding, most footy fans I knew identified with an English team because, let's face it the English League is the main league in the UK by a long way. Liverpool just happened to be the one I started to follow in primary school and I stuck with them even when they stopped winning league titles, cause I'm not a fair weather fan.
