I know Ian was into Man City, and Peter Hook was on Soccer AM as a Man United supporter with Mani off Stone Roses/Primal Scream.  (Mr Hook should be banned from live Saturday Morning TV for swearing, the naughty bearded fat freak.)  I dunno if Mr Sumner or Morris like football too.

 

Anyway, which football team do you support if any?  Mine's the Glory Hornet Boys.......Watford.

 

As long as no-one supports L***n Town I'll be happy.

Watford did well last year, they're only £2.3 Million in debt from £7+ Million the season before. 

 

Got rid of high earners and now play with mostly youth.  Doin well to be 3rd, need a little luck, and lucky they have the English Mourinho in Boothroyd.

Three cheers for American Football!

Does anyone there follow the NFL?

 

I used to follow Leeds on your side of the sticks (until I realized that Leeds is not the best team )

Hardly a reason to stop supporting a team Crisis.  I'd follow Watford till I die, whatever they do.  I'd class you as a glory hunter.  Try supporting Chelsea, that's the glory hunters fave at the mo.

Yeah, I was always partial to Theirry Henry and Arsenal until I switched over to Leeds for a long time. I should have rephrased my statement, I didn't stop liking Leeds because they don't have good years. More because I think I just stopped following all of the matches.

Southampton; relegated from the premiership last season. Been in top flight since 1978 and now mid table in the championship league.

Supported them from 1977 onwards and seen them perhaps 200 times.

 

I am sure that TheRealJon/Dawn will remember when the Saints played Watford in around 1979 in the old League Cup when Southampton won the home leg 5-1 and then lost the away fixture 6-1 !!!

I don't Terry, TheRealJon's a big fan, he was probably there.

 

The only cup matches I remember with Soton were in the Mickey Mouse cup last year, where Watford got 5 goals, and FA Cup Semi a couple of seasons ago, where u lot fluked a win.

@TheRealJohn: Well, your team isn´t in the Premier League anymore, we are still in the Bundesliga (but will probably play in the second league next season, if we go on like that...).

Yep. I was there. We lost 0-4 at the Dell and then won 7-1 in the return leg.

This from the Daily Torygraph:

League Cup 2nd Round 2nd Leg, 2/9/80
Watford 7
Scorers: Patching, Train, Poskett 2, Bolton (pen), Jenkins, Callaghan
Southampton 1
Scorers: Sims (og)

Watford's Seven Goals Humiliate Southampton
Daily Telegraph report by "a special correspondent"

Second Division Watford humiliated Southampton, second in the First Division, in the Football League Cup last night. Facing the seemingly impossible target of hauling back a 4-0 deficit from last week's first leg, Watford sent the game into extra time and scored twice more. Their fans were ecstatic and rightly so.

It was the first time Watford have scored seven goals since they trounced Grimsby by the same score 13 years ago.

Watford's manager, Graham Taylor, said: "This is without doubt the greatest result of my career. I thought we could beat them but I did not believe we could go through to the next round.

"This is the sort of result you dream about but don't really expect to happen."

Southampton were without the inspiration of Kevin Keegan, the England captain, who was injured on Saturday, and also Ivan Golac, their Yugoslav international defender.

By half-time Watford were 2-0 up through Poskett and Train then cut the deficit further with a goal from Patching in the 67th minute.

Jenkins in the middle

Southampton seemed to have saved themselves when Sims conceded an own goal in the 74th minute, but within a minute Watford had wiped that out when Jenkins was fouled in the box by Nicholl, and Bolton drove in the penalty. And with 10 minutes to go Jenkins levelled the aggregate score.

Callaghan came on for the injured Train and five minutes into extra time shot high into Southampton's net.

Williams - Southampton's only player to emerge with credit - had a fine chance even then to level the aggregate but failed and fittingly, Poskett beat the offside trap, rounded Katalinic and scored Watford's 7th goal five minutes from the end.

I remember that game, can't believe it was in 1980, wasn't there a similarly high scoring game involving one or both of these teams in the League Cup a few years later?

Mighty mighty Raith Rovers Football Club of Kirkcaldy and the Scottish Second Division, due to place of birth. Greatest moment - 27th November 1994 at Ibrox Park in Glasgow (home of Rangers) against Celtic in that years Coca-Cola Cup (league cup) final, 3 minutes from time, 2-1 down, the clubs greatest ever player, Gordon Dalziel pops up to head home the equalizer. We went on to win on penalties. I'll never forget the commentators words when Celtic captain Paul McStay stepped up to take the penalty which won us the game. "Unthinkable, surely, for the skipper to miss..."... Scott Thomson saved that penalty... BLISS!!!!

SB - I think you were right. I was watching a game at Fratton Park the home of Portsmouth; back in the late 80's. I was watching Portsmouth play and at the end of the game I heard one of the Pompey fans shout " the scummers have lost 7-0!" I think Southampton lost to Watford that day.

 

After the game I went back to my mate's house and his father, a life long Pompey fan, asked me if I wanted a cup of tea or a can of 7-up
