Re: Radio 5 Live
I don't think it's straightforward either. I do think it's inevitable a sizeable number of football supporters in a town within any big city conurbation will follow its premiership superpower, or in our case one of a choice of two... and lots of those people will have family ties to the big city, even if we're talking a couple generations back. I also (going on what I hear from young GH) think there is a certain sense of pride/solidarity among those who choose to follow their hometown team, that would be lost a little if there weren't these 'big time Charlie's/gloryhunters' to compare/contrast themselves with.
