You do know Tango was a Wolves fan when he was younger, now a big wendy fan.
My point is people can move home and love the new one just as much if they want to, personal choice i suppose.
Whilst I personally agree with you I can see why some fans do this.

I stand by my views, Tango is an idiot and I haven't much time for him!

If for whatever reason I couldn’t support the Blades anymore then I think I would really struggle to follow anyone else. If I really had to then I think Sheffield FC could be an option but again, worlds oldest club or not, they’re not Sheffield United F.C. I’d still watch football highlights or games on the tv.

A friend of mine was a born and bred Blade right up to his late teens, then switched to Everton till his mid 20's. One midweek, Everton reserves were playing at S6 so he went down to watch the game and became an Owls fan, never understood it myself...

Why does that ...err... ‘character”, support Wednesday, is it a sort of penance, a sentence, result of a bet gone wrong, self flagellation, self loathing ? What is it ?

He seems happy enough

Its a tough one for the neutral supporter

I know of people who have switched sides 4 times already since August.

It was so much.easier in previous seasons, you supported Wednesday, apart from that season United were in the premier league, and got relegated thanks to that united player unsworth

A slow and painful death would be preferable to supporting United or even worse Leeds

Or you could try supporting the Owls Padders, they must be doing really well judging by all the gloating some of them were doing last night on the Blades/Bristol thread .

They're not too clever in Europe though.

Would You Ever Change The Team You Support?

I could not ever change from being a Blade, but definitely could support another side, if say I moved to USA or AUS, or anywhere for that matter!

I'd probably go to a few different teams, and see which I prefer (and perhaps look into their history too)

-

Of all the [proper] Blades and Owls I've known - which is obviously a lot like most Sheffielders - I simply wouldn't believe them, if they switched.

(a bit like watching USA films about bloods and crips - I think what a lot of saddos, but if someone asked me if I'd ever be an Owl, I'd laugh, as would an Owl at the reverse question... football is quite similar this I think in 2 team cities )

-

on different line,

I have wondered, if there are any similarities to which clubs people support in '2 teams per city', and which they support themselves. I can't write computer programs though. I think I once tried a thread/poll in here, and no one responded

as a non follower of football, or indeed any other team sports,

a question.

what makes you choose which team you support?

I went to Hillsbro a few times before ever entering Bramall Lane. All the kids on the estate were Owls (even in Sharrow), my brother is an Owls fan. So you'd think I'd become an Owls fan. I just didn't like it there. And first went into Bramall Lane, I felt like this was my [alt] home

At the time as well, United were in 3rd tier, and weds I think top tier, so not glory hunting. (just as well in either case as it happens )

It's mainly parental at a fairly rough, but most likely accurate guess.

Well Well Well. who to support it seems everbody is losing. I was thinking of supporting celtic (see post 35) but they got hammered 4-0. Man city's the team but there the wrong side of the pennine"s, and I don"t like heights.

Yonks ago When Saturday Comes did a survey of which of Celtic or Rangers fans of (I think top division at the time) clubs supported. Pretty much every one was 50/50ish except Man City which showed a bias to Celtic. This was back in the 90s so I have no link and don't know if anyone's done anything similar since.
