Despite James' objections and misgivings, Grandstand was a cracking success on the old forum. So once again, please, please, please, please, please can we keep this forum a dignified area for discussion about all types of sport and not a slanging area of 'My teams better than your team' type posts that belong on the BBC's 606 forum?

To help this, post your allegiances here so that everyone knows where you stand.

I am Felix.

I am a Manchester United fan.

I have supported them for 28 years

Yes, I do live in Sussex...

I also have a soft spot for Portsmouth as my family originate from there and also Aldershot Town as they are the club closest to my birthplace.

I like: Roy Keane (3 years ago), Ryan Giggs, Duncan Edwards, Nobby Stiles and Peter Schmeichel.

I hate: Being called a glory hunter. I supported Utd all throughout the 1980's so Liverpool fans, I know your pain.

I can appreciate: That Chelsea are a good team. But they wouldnt be without RA's cash. That Mourinho is a great manager. But he wouldnt be at Chelsea without RA's cash...

I have supported them through many years of false dawns and dissapointments.

I live in Newcastle

I have soft spots for Man City (the clubs have a lot of simularities) and Shef Wed

I like Alan Shearer, Steven Taylor, Pedro and Sir Les Ferdinand

I hate being constantly reminded how long it is since Newcastle won anything

Hi, I'm Jonson (everyone applauds)

I support Leicester City

I have been a season ticket holder for 21 years

Yes, I do live in Leicester

I also support Hearts, my Scottish team, although I have never seen them play live

I like: Gary Lineker, Robbie Savage, Steve Claridge and Emile Heskey

I dislike: Spurs, Aston Villa and Derby

I can appreciate that we're a yo-yo club at best, will probably never see anything like the Martin O'Neill years again, and that bloke that sits at the end of my aisle will always moan at me for coming in 5 minutes late half-cooked. Fuck him.

I'm Neo, I'm a Hearts supporter, have been for roughly 12 years, I love - Rudi Skacel, Roman Bednar and Steven Pressley. I like David Beckham and Alan Smith. I maintain a fondness for Manchester Utd which began when I met Eric Cantona. I enjoy watching Real Madrid and Barcelona matches, just to see how bad the football we see really is!

I can appreciate we probably won't win the league, but it's nice to dream.

I am Aaron Eiffel.

I am a Gillingham fan.

I have supported them for 11 years (I'm 17).

Yes, I do live within 15 minutes of the ground.

I like: Super Bob Taylor, Nicky Southall, John Hodge, Andy Thomson.

I dislike: Paul Scally, Carl Asaba, glory-hunters

I appreciate that: Paul Scally saved the club, for which I am damn grateful (bit of a wanker though). I also appreciate that the glory years of the last decade are probably over for the time being, and that we have been punching above our weight for far too long.


I hate archers, The Archers, and Jeffrey Archer, you're all deceitful cowards. I just realised that only applies to archers and Jeffrey Archer, not The Archers who are, to be fair, a mixed bag.

I also used to be called donnie-darko, but now I'm not.

I'm Nath.

I support: Manchester United, and have done so for about 13 years.

I have a bit of a softs spot for Sheffield United, even if my liking of them, stretches no further than watching any of their games that are shown on TV and checking their results.

I like:
Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, Cristiano Ronaldo, Juan Sebastian Verón, Peter Schmeichel, Steve Bruce, Gary Pallister, and many more players (and no not all past/present United players )

I hate: Being called a glory supporter, me being a supporter is because of being part of a family who all support Man Utd and I'm from Manchester.

I can appreciate: That United may not be the strong force in England that they once were.

I am Goodfella.

I am a Charlton fan.

I have supported them for 18 years.

I live in North Devon but lived in Erith, about six miles from Charlton, until I was 14.

I have a soft spot for the local teams down here, Plymouth, Exeter, Bristol City and Torquay but I don't have much time for Yeovil Town after the way they're FA Cup match with us last season was branded around.

I like: Most of the current Charlton first team except for Mark Fish and Kevin Lisbie who I wish would just bugger off. Other managers I like are Arsene Wenger, Chris Coleman and David O'Leary, I don't have any particurlar players from other clubs that I have a particurlar like for but I'm still a fan of Lee Bowyer even though he left Charlton 10 years ago this summer.

I hate: Millwall, Crystal Palace, Gillingham, Tottenham and Chelsea. I especially despise Palarse chairman Simon Jordan and the Gills chairman Paul Scally who don't have a brain cell between them.

I appreciate: That Chelsea are an amazing team. I don't however appreciate that it isn't all down to the money...

I am Donnie Darko. 

I am a Plymouth Argyle fan.

I have supported them for 11 years.

I'm originally from North Devon but now live in Leeds.

I also have a soft spot for Liverpool as I went to university there and have a lot of mates who are Reds; and for Torquay, a great little club.

I like: Paul Wotton, Paul Sturrock, Dwight Marshall, Steven Gerrard and Joaquin.

I hate: People who can't see beyond the Premiership; moaning Argyle fans (lighten up! we're going to be OK!) and hooliganism.

I can appreciate: We're in a slightly far-flung location. But it's a lovely part of the world! Why do we always struggle to attract players to the club?

I support Birmingham City. I also support Warwickshire Cricket Club.

I like almost all sports except Golf and Motor Racing. Football and Cricket are my favourite sports.

I have a strong affection for Man United and Celtic.

I think Diego Maradona is the best footballer I have ever seen and Shane Warne is the most phenominally exciting cricketer ever.

I hate Liverpool, Robbie Savage and Roman Abramovitch, not because of Chelsea. I just feel it is obscene somebody can be so rich in a poor country.

I am obsessed with football and watching Luton play. It is draining my wallet.

I support Ipswich Town

I have supported them for about 10 years.

I live in Newmarket (Suffolk)

I have a strong and often Irrational dislike of Norwich City, Sheffield Utd, Dean Holdsworth,

I like: Martijn Reuser, Pablo Counago, Matt Holland

Im impressed by the fact Joe Royle has progressed Ipswich in the last 3 years considering he has had to build a new team each year.

Im resigned to the fact that this season is likely to be a transitional season as so many important players departed and had to be replaced for nothing in the summer.


If anything is worth doing, it would have been done already.

I am rick_7.

I am a Manchester United fan.

I have supported them for 17 years.  I went to my first game at the age of five.  I live in Manchester.  I have nice, soft hair.

My favourite sports are football, boxing, cricket and running.  I used to play a lot of sport myself before I buggered up my knees.

I like: Justine Henin, Ronnie O'Sullivan, Alan Smith, Diego Maradona, Garrincha and watching Muralitharan bowl.

I hate: Arsene Wenger, Ashley Cole, Robert Pires, Alan Green constantly whining about everything, Deco, Deco, Deco, Deco and Deco.  Oh, and Ken Bates.

I can appreciate: An attractive man.

In buying the Premiership title Chelsea are ruining the game that I love.

I am JJ Holiday.

I support Northampton Town, the team that nobody cares about, even there own fans. There ace.

In addition to loving football I like boxing, basketball and cricket, in small doses.

Paul Scholes is my favourite footballer of all time.

Jack Johnson and Joe Frasier are my favourite boxers of all time. But Wayne McCulloch deserves an honourable mention.

Roman Abramovich is a crook. Watching the Premiership sits uneasy with me nowadays because of his presence, I hope he dies.

Craig Bellamy is a fucking, scaled-down cunt. I hope he picks a fight with me so I can jump on his head.

I support The Star Sheffield Steelers and the Philadelphia Flyers. Ice Hockey is my sporting passion.
As for Football, I am a Wrexham fan (thats where I was brought up) although I do have a soft spot for Arsenal (my Dads team, who was gutted that I didn't follow in his footsteps).

Other sports:
Baseball (a big Red Sox fan)
Football (US)
MMA (UFC, Pride, K-1 etc)

All Time Sporting Heros:
Bobby Clarke (Philadelphia Flyers) - A great man who played the game with heart and desire. Never gets the credit he so richly deserves.

'Marvelous' Marvin Hagler - Pound for pound, one of the greatest boxers that ever entered the ring (and was a massive insperation for me when I started boxing).

Sporting Highlight: Watching the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Tampa Bay Lightning in game 6 of the NHL Eastern Conferance Championship at the Wachovia Centre, Philadelphia, PA. (ok, so we lost Game 7, but I have never been to a sporting event where the atmosphere was so electric, I still get goose bumps when I think about it).
