I follow the fortunes (or lack of them) of Napoli because of a couple of holidays and replica shirts purchased.

Also look out for the results of Croydon and Whyteleafe in the non league front.

I look out for Wivenhoe town's results (Ryman league Div2 . . . . .played a couple of games for them when I was a student in Colchester)

As for overseas teams, I watch out for Sliema Wanderers (Malta) when they are in Europe. Always try and catch a game whenever I am in Malta (which is fairly often coz my Mum is half Maltese)

Öster - in the Swedish 1st Division (like ours really the second). My girlfriend is from Vaxjo in Southern Sweden where they are based so I thought I'd take an interest. Won the league back in 1981 and runner ups in 1991.

Also seen Dulwich Hamlet on a few occasions. Not sure about the pink kit though.

Hadjuk Split is the other great love in my life and subsequently I despise those ******s, Dinamo Zagreb.

And of course, my fine friend Rues team, the one and only VfB Lubeck.

I used to also look out for Fulham cos I felt sorry for them but times change.

FC Den Haag - my local in Holland absolute Sh!te the equivalent of Millwall in NL and despite the Hague being the official capital (parliament, Queen etc) they have been in the lowest prof. division for 10 - 15 years. A kind of nasty mix of Wolves and Millwall - but worse.
Haarlem - The only other team guaranteed to finish below FC Den Haag, bunch of farmers, small following, only claim to fame being Ruud Guilt started there.
Port Vale - Lived in Stoke for 3 years, worked there, couldn't follow Stoke instinct led me to the underdog, cool club actually.
Deportivo La Corunna - Girlfriend comes from there, wierd to support a team that wins things, they've performed miracles really its like Ipswich winning the Prem.

Wollongong Wolves - cos one of my best friend's older brothers played for them years ago, and another close friend was a ball boy and spent days (literally) on the supporters coach as a kid. (Imagine travelling 1800 kms to Melbourne and back on the supporters coach just for the pleasure of watching your team get done - sheer insanity!)

San Jose Clash - 'cause Tommy Gun is one of the greatest songs of all time! - but they've changed their name to the San Jose Earthquakes, so hopefully the San Andreaus fault line will swallow them up.

Scunthorp - 'cause it's a funny name and Ian Botham used to play for them...and I named a friends cat after the team - and the poor thing was known as 'S*****' for the rest of it's life.

Used to quite like Internazionale, partly because of their kit, partly because of the name and the ideals behind the name. But, for obvious reasons, I despise them now.

Was forced by nuns at my Catholic primary school to follow Celtic.

Non-league: Bromley. I used to live just up the road from the ground and went on quite a few away trips with them. Dave Swindlehurst had just taken over as manager when I first started watching. (Got them relegated too!)

Bromley Town was a good place to park up for a smoke!!

Actually, it's Bromley FC, strictly speaking. Bromley Town was the squash club. (Only a Bromley fan would bother being so anal in correcting that...)

Bromley also had a concrete 5-a-side pitch behind one end of the ground, which was great. If Simon Jordan wants some tips on how to get people into Selhurst earlier, then he ought to think about doing the same. We used to turn up at about 1.30 and order loads of drinks in the bar to quench our raging thirst from playing footy.

Give the Wolves about twenty more seasons and they might boast the pedigree of my team, Adelaide City (now regrettably termed Adelaide Force).

Since the Wolves were members of the original national league and club football in the Illawarra dates back to the 1880's I think we can take seniority thank you.

I guess I like Fiorentina as well...spent a time studying Italian and got to a few matches when I was over there...what a great place to watch football.

Went back a few years later, and watched an end of season game...against Torino I think. Fiorentina must have been going for a place in Europe on goals scored, as the final score was 6-3....

And I would also look out for the results of the Pride of the beautiful city of Akureyri in Iceland, the mighty Þor Akureyri (great name, great place).

Unfortunately, Australian newspapers do not see fit to publish these results...

A team I love just as much as Palace is my beloved Torino, currently in Italy's Serie B but in 3rd place now so promotion should be achieved this year.

In Serie A Fiorentina 9Because they are Juve haters too), Roma (they have Fancesco Totti), Parma (nice kit, Buffon, Cannavaro).

Adelaide City, South Melbourne and Marconi, are the only clubs that have played in every national league season since 1977. Adelaide City won the league in 1986, 91/92 and 93/94, and the cup in 1979, 1989 and 1991/92. Wollongong's only honour in their first 19 seasons was last year's title win.
