Where is the football capital of England?

Interesting question posed by sky sports on twitter. 3 options given were London, Manchester and Liverpool, but many people suggesting Sheffield.

London or Manchester for me. Highest number of teams and the national stadium vs most trophies in the past 30-40 years. Could understand shouts for Sheffield, itís definitely the home and motherland of English football, but Ďcapitalí just implies modern relevancy to me, which the Sheffield clubs donít have.

Wembley... or Zurich.
The capital is where the head sits (capital literally means head) and the FA is based in HA9 8BQ. Of course the real decisions are made in FIFA-Strasse 20.

London.

No where in the UK/Europe can compare with the amount of professional and amateur teams in one city.

Then you add in the fact it’s home to the national stadium and the EPL..

Top of course as you only have to look at founder members of the football league.
