Phil's 92 Tour & Beyond

A tour of all the clubs that ever played in the Football League

The Fans

 

 I have travelled away with Accrington Stanley, Man City, Bolton Wanderers, Preston North End, Nottingham Forest and FC United. My main teams though, have been......

Crawley Town  the team of my eldest son  - it was great to see a team I watched in the Southern League as a young man, gain entry to the League and do so well

Oldham Athletic the team of my late Father, my uncles and cousins - the best away fans I came across - what would they be like if they actually had something to shout about !

Blackburn Rovers the team that became mine in childhood. As I watched their all too predictable demise I got to  know and admire some dedicated fans on the Rovers coach. Not the sort who jump around and shout like those Latics fans but these people take fanaticism to another level - in addition to all the first team games, they watch the U-23s and youth team, both near and far, accumulating a wealth of knowledge about the club and the players along the way.
