Football is in the headlines again, partly for the wrong reasons (Rio Ferdinand, rape allegations etc) and partly for the right reasons - England v Turkey. (and wales and scotland too if I'm going to be pc about this)

So, I thought it would be nice to know who my fellow TT 'ers support.

I'll kick off (excuse the cr*p pun).

Cut me in half and I bleed blue and white hoops. No, it's not Greenock Morton, but West Londons finest - QPR.

Stop laughing.

QPR still play footie? News to me....maybe Daz knows, he's a Wolves man! Wink

Country-wise, I'm for Italy, England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland - in that order! I'm a mixed bag, me. Confused

Club-wise, I'm a lifelong Fiorentina supporter and been following Spurs since 1981, when Ricky Villa ruled the Lane! Twisted Evil

I cant believe my team, The Mighty Greenock Morton have been mentioned on a tri site, twice. Fantastic!

As for this weekend, let's hope Turkey stuff the Engerland and John Motson gets his giblets ripped out. Evil or Very Mad

I hope this doesn't appear too harsh. Smile

I don't follow football. Might watch an England international if I fancy a laugh. More of a motorsport fan, bikes and F1. Went to Silverstone this year for the F1, what an excellent event. Sooooo loud.

Like you Andy, I like F1, and yes Silverstone is veeery noisy Sad Used to go to Brands a lot but guess my own training put paid to that really. I like rugby, and being a Yorkshire lass rugby league is my game Smile much more flowing than union Exclamation Don't mind footy but sometimes the "actors" can be annoying Wink

I would love to get to an F1 sometime. Went to Network Q Rally of Great Britain in Mid Wales couple of years ago (it's almost on the doorstep) and the noise of the cars really took me by surprise. First thing we saw was Richard Burns spin off in his Subaru right in front of us. We ended the day in the middle of Brechfa Forest in pitch dark walking along the narrow forest roads and diving into the side as soon as we saw the headlights screaming along - you can see how accidents happen in rallying as you can get so close to the cars. Its a superb day out.

f1 is hideously overpriced.. for a taste of the action you could consider the silverstone half marathon Cool and make brooming noises on the way round.

BTCC is much cheaper and the racing action is generally better.. i keep meaning to go again.

Used to be happy saying I supported Chelsea, but now I'm probably just going to be labeled as a mockney, wannabe, plastic, bandwagon jumper.... Sad

Love F1 too - still remember Niki Lauda's crash (I was only 5 at the time) so been brought up with it. Rally too, as we had it on our doorstep in Italy, when the Lancias ruled the world (before the Audis and the Japs came in and beat everyone with their 4-wheel-drive nonsense!). Rugby too, although I prefer union - prob coz I played it at school in Blackheath.

Into almost any sport - I'd prob watch tiddlywinks if it was on TV...... Embarassed

Support Wolves. Bit of a tough time they're having at the moment but I still expect them to avoid relegation as I know they battle hard, still have their better players injured and always start the season off-form. We were damn lucky to get the points last week though.
I'm hoping portsmouth continue to drop and fill-up one releg place, with the other two going to bolton.......and spurs! yay! Very Happy
