    I have always really only supported the one side, West Ham, though as I lived a long way from them as a kid it was not possible to go and watch them. However, I did live near Brighton and so I became a supporter of sorts. That was way back in the 70's and the crowds at the Goldstone were brilliant, remembering we were then in Div 3 of the old system, I can remember all- ticket sell outs against Villa and Bournemouth, 33,000 in the Goldstone, imagine those crowds at that level now! Anyway, back to topic, I have always as a result of that kept tags on Brighton and followed from a distance but no great passion. Strangely, and somewhat in-explicably I also have a soft spot for Hereford! Bit Strange.
    Who do you have a soft spot for?

    Well, my team is Sporting Clube de Portugal, knowed internationaly by Sporting Lisbon, but I, inexplicably, do really like other teams, such as Borussia Dortmund, even thought I have never lived there, or even have been to Germany. Another teamthat I have no connection with, but have been following recently, even thought I can't watch their games often, is Blackpool. I started to like them 2 seasons ago when they were in the Premier League, I liked they are a simple club, I felt quite sad when they went down.

    I personally don't have a softspot but other teams other than the one I already like (Chelsea), I guess I could say I have a "Softspot" everytime I watch a random game I usually tend to cheer for the losing team, it kind of makes the game more interesting and exciting too everytime they get the ball because you're waiting for them to make a goal and when they do is 10 times better haha.
