Fans Focus - Non League football clubs

Mine is a Swedish Club called GAIS, based in Gothenburg.

 

My mate used to visit his bird there.

One year he went to a game and brought me back a shirt.

So, it ended up as my adopted team.

 

Won the Intertoto cup in 1990.

More successful than Orient.

 

I also look for results of French side Lorient for obvious reasons.

 

Over to Derek and Meggy.

Sofia, my greek teacher at Gaynes night classes for two years came from Thessaloniki and eventually went back a few years ago, bet she regrets that now.

Lovely girl and four of us visited her for a short break. She supported PAOK so that's my reason for following them.

And my brother lives in Adelaide and "barracks" for Port Adelaide in the AFL.

Celtic (Does that count?)

 

Bray Wanderers in the League of Ireland (Only club in County Wicklow and I've watched them at home v Bohemians)

And the fat bums are usually called Dimitrios.

 

Wish I'd thought of this thread Michael, bit of interest here.

Certainly makes a change from Barcelona or Real Madrid.

 

I was once wearing my Orient (Squares) shirt in a pub in the West End.

When i came back from the Loo, a tourist had put a pint behind the bar for me as he thought it was Croatian.

I did follow the fortunes of Mooroolbark from Victoria in the days when we got aussie soccer fixtures on the football pools in the summer.

They must have been of a dire standard and you'd get results like 12-0 every week..

 

We did get to see Sofia's flat in Salonica, I do have a photo of the contents of her fridge, dunno why. Oh and I managed to break her toilet flush, no bog paper in the basket in her flat, dead posh.

Just realised I'll still be on holiday in Greece when they play Poland.

Which shirt should I take, the greek one or the PAOK one?

I don't really follow foreign clubs, I prefer national teams so I support the clubs with players from my favourite national teams. So,

 

Bayern Munich (over half the expected starters, and I play for them!)

Real Madrid (Ozil and Khedira)

Lazio (Klose)

 

Though I'm sticking with City despite Arsenal adding Podolski to Mertesacker (and having 7 Tears Boy Arteta)

 

In Ukraine, dunno which team, again just like the national team

 

I guess Celtic since it's me old man's team
