Why Today Doesn't Suck.
- 11 April 2002
o my fucking god...Goal No. 6: Pick a team that's successful enough to crack Channel 613 from time to time and will avoid the ignominy of getting kicked out of the EPL. And by the way, that can happen. At the end of every season, the bottom three teams are relegated to the second division, with the top three teams from the second division getting called up. (Imagine if baseball did this?) You don't want to be stuck with a team that gets relegated. So that factored in more than anything else.
Not many english people watch American TV....the only people who emailed were gloryhunting US "soccer" fans who only like Man Utd because they're shown on TV more than any other teamReading -- The ultimate Cinderella story: They were recently elevated to EPL status for the first time in 135 years. Unfortunately, they have no fans -- I probably got three e-mails making their case. I don't want to be stuck with the EPL version of the Arizona Cardinals.
This guy pisses me off - that whole film was fiction...West Ham was prominently featured in the Elijah Wood movie about hooliganism ("Green Street Hooligans"). Again, I want to minimize the role of hooligans in my life -- it's been a productive three and a half decades without them and I'd like to keep the streak going.
What is this guy on!!!!Portsmouth -- Reader comments included, "Blue-collar fans, blue-collar team, there are no executive boxes at their ground which means it's very rowdy and the club has no money" and "this place is down on the South coast for a reason -- it's a hell-hole and no matter how much money the team spends, it still stinks." I think that fails my vacation test.
However that is funny.:lmao:• Unintentional Comedy: They have a Kafka-reading, gigantic Dutchman of a coach named Martin Jol who (A) has brothers named "Cock" and "Dick" (I'm not making this up), and (B) apparently talks just like Goldmember (in the third Austin Powers movie). Now there's someone who needs to be in my life.
This guy has some facts correct, others he has no clue, how is Liverpools most hated team any team in London. !!! I also can't deal with the constant comparisons to baseball especially Fenway Park. How can a sponsor of a team have any bearing on who you support. Is this man Dick and Martin's brother?• Sponsor: Carlsberg Beer. I consider this a major negative. Carlsberg sucks.
• Most Hated Rival: Any of the London teams.

I've only read the first page but I bet he picks either Liverpool or Arsenal :roll:
Some other "facts"
- Apparently Arsenal ended a "long drought" of titles in 2004...
- The most famous Newcastle player to wear the #9 shirt was Hughie Gallacher, not Jackie Milburn
- The City of Manchester Stadium is actually rubbish
