LeChuck Posted November 28, 2008 Share Posted November 28, 2008 Obviously the vast majority of people on here are from Blackburn and the surrounding areas, but I was just wondering if the rest follow their hometown teams as well as Rovers? I know some people will say it's impossible to follow both, but for me it isn't at all...it's a completely different feeling when Barrow 'achieve' something to when Rovers do it. It's more of a patronising thing with hometown teams I feel, a kind of 'aww well done, you didn't embarrass yourself' feeling, like cheering on the fat kid forced to enter a race at sports day because no-one else would do it. I decided to ask because Barrow have just qualified for the FA Cup 3rd round tonight, beating Brentford 2-1. I think it's the first time since 1991 that we've made it this far. I really hope it's a big draw because they're always struggling for money, as are most teams at that level I guess. It's actually the most successful period we've had for ages, we got promoted to the Conference (Blue Sq. Premier as it's now known) last season after making the brave decision to appoint joint-managers with half the season gone. So who do other people follow, and how are they doing?
