You can pick up teams for all sorts of reasons though. I think I’ve mentioned this before on here a long time ago but I started following Wolves around 1984 I think, purely because I wanted to go to a proper football match and they were the only midlands team playing at home who I could get to and wasn’t ticket only (just think, but for fate it could have been Villa) and I absolutely fell in love, even though they were fucking dire at the time. I have no connection with the City itself, indeed I’ve lived in Manchester most of my life, does that make me less invested? I don’t know, I would hope not. I think as long as you are prepared to follow a team through thick and thin then you can count yourself a supporter as much as anyone.
Funnily enough my boss who’s Glaswegian is a Wolves fan as well, I have no idea how that came about.
