What footy team do you support and have you posted in the footy thread?

There seems to be some consternation by non-Man Utd fans that:

a) the United fans are posting too much in the football thread; and
b) the United fans are not posting enough in the football thread.

I wanted to establish a clear and scientific evidence base for these claims.

So, please identify your football allegiances, but ONLY if you sometimes post in the Football Thread.

This saves me trawling through the thread and doing some frequency analysis.

I try not to be an ABU, I really do. These days I'm more of an ABC if anything. However, for the purposes of your poll, I'll play ball.

In the interests of the poll it is obviously also assuming that the United fans only ever post about United and the ABU's do not but I know where you're coming from.

There would have to be a slog analysis of posts to further assess what percentage of posts are primarily about United or contain a direct reference to them, and what camp posted it.

I don't understand the purpose of the poll?

Are you suggesting that non united fans aren't allowed to express an opinion on United matters?

Follow, yes. Support, not so much. Very similar to my position on Chelsea.

I'd like to know that too. Perhaps one has to be a regular contributor in the footie thread to understand.

In any case (with a hooligan's disregard of the original thread topic) as a Leeds supporter I hate each and every one of you. Except ronan, obv.

It is well known among football cognoscenti.

Hate and Leeds suggests you are one of their own.

Have to admit to not being a member of the "scum" haters...just couldn't understand it...but then i'm just an armchair fan.If they play decent football i applaud it.

My curent hatred is for Chelsea.

And sure are Leeds not a family club these days ??

MARCHING ON TOGETHER !!!!!
