I think the internet has a lot to do with modern sharing of ideology but I take your point.
I am born and bred South Manchester, County fan since my early teens. Lived in America for 12 years and recently became a citizen. No offence taken, ever. Itís not easy being a County fan in America, theyíll always be some who engage and find it interesting, others that shake their fist and sneer. Thatís life. I will speak up if I hear nonsense spouted though.
