Anybody got a second team you support not in a top division?

Carshalton Athletic, Sutton Utd and Tooting and Mitcham, grew up very close to all three with Carshalton being my home town. Tooting and Mitcham now play where we used to train up until 76, about a 3 minute walk from my nan's house where I lived. 

Dover Athletic, because I used to watch them occasionally when working in Dover back in the 90s.

Partick Thistle, just because of, well everything really, Red, Black and Yellow kit, nicknamed the Jags and once had a team so good they were dubbed the Maryhill Magyars, wish I could retain useful knowledge, as I'm afraid that an intimate knowledge of late 60s/early 70s, sticker albums, bubble gum cards, Shoot and garage giveaways, is never going to earn me a good living, but I chose the Jags as my Scottish team back then, so I feel duty bound to stick with them . Staying with friends of a friend in Glasgow the night before the friendly in 07 we passed the Thistle ground on the way from the airport to Possil, and I don't care how sad it made me look, I insisted that the car stop for me to get out and take a pic.

Play-off push you reckon? Sutton have blown it, 1 win in 10. 

Hope so. But you never know with Carlisle Utd . They could just as easily go on a losing streak...

Actually, which other team does that remind me of !

Supported Rangers almost as long as I've supported Chelsea, over 50 years. Even Martin King gave me a mention in his latest book, Hoolifan 2, saying I was the first person he ever saw wearing a Rangers scarf in the Shed, must have been about 1971 or 1972 ?

As a kid I'd go to see Fulham when Chelsea were away in the late 60's, always had a soft spot for them and loved their ground - so close to the pitch as opposed to the bridge back then. Gone off them since their fans seem to regard us as their rivals ???

Other teams I like and look out for their results are Wimbledon, Plymouth, Hearts and Dundee.

Went to Fulham a lot mid 70s as a kid when it was seen as a safer environment than ours. At ten I thought it was a right old mans club- not much in the way of singing or atmosphere- the Hammersmith End was a big covered end and with the right fans in there it could have been a cauldron.

Look out for AFC Wimbledon and Sutton Utd, plus Sheffield Utd; a mate played for them in the 90’s and had many a good night up there.

Good to see you back, mate
