      This is my fourth season. I wanted to see some professional sport and was curious about the ground. I went to my first game when Hyypier was in charge. It was the most dire game I had ever seen and that's from a football novice. For all that I was hooked. I got to matches, work permitting. Last season I got a season ticket and managed to get to Newcastle, Notts Forest and Norwich away. I love the friendship and camaraderie and enjoying the social get together before and after the game. Love it.

      Funnily enough, I was having a pretty similar discussion with some Chinese locals this evening. They follow the usual suspects, and I was asking them how happy it would make them feel, if their respective teams won the elite competitions (in most cases, again). It really wouldn't make much of a difference was my reading.

      I was explaining to them, that the excitement of knowing that one day, we might win an FA Cup, or qualify for a European competition is my equivalent. They couldn't understand this logic, and felt sorry for me!

      Ok, I'm in Asia, but surely this logic remains true if you support Man Utd and have always lived in Burgess Hill? Does anyone have a good analogy that I could use, when trying to explain the difference in supporting your local team, vs a random one?

      Cheers!

      It's like winning the lottery, much more exciting if you are a pauper than a Billionaire.

      The great Sir Bobby Robson sums it up perfectly for me

      What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It's not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It's the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

      It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.
      That brought a year to my eyes. I remember being that boy at the Goldstone with my Grandad.

      For me it is probably the escapism from the 9-5 and vicariously living out your schoolboy dreams.

      I was born in Wimbledon and if my parents hadn't moved here when I was five I'd probably be getting on the tube every Saturday to one of the big London clubs.

      Saw my first game in 73 but then didn't go again until early 76. Became a regular at the very start of the Mullery years and was hooked. Can't change my allegiance even if I wanted to. I'm not necessarily sure the war years would have made any difference. If things had been smoother I still would have been an Albion fan throughout. What it does do is make you appreciate the highs more than most fans of other clubs. Our ride, right back to Mullery has been entertaining to say the least!

      I don't get enough moaning at home so 90 mins a fortnight is a lifeline.

      Just watching the cd of 2011/12 season - we have come an awful long way since then

      Too many highlights between now and then to mention

      Who was it we had in goal against Watford in April 2012?
