How do you support your team?

Following on from posts in the Manchester United thread, how do you follow and support your team?

I've supported Manchester United since late 1986, I chose United as my mum went to all the home games in the 50s/60s and early 70s, so wasn't aware of any other teams at the time. I lived in Bury at the time, so would have started supporting them if I knew they had a team

Went to my first game in the pre-season of 1990/91, when Denis Irwin made his debut in a friendly against Bury at Gigg Lane in a thrilling 0-0!!!

First league game I saw was in 1991/92 vs Leeds at OT, when my neighbour who was a Season Ticket holder took me, with my favourite player Bryan Robson equalising in the last few minutes of the game. I also got sun-stroke that day due to the red-hot weather that day.

I've had a season ticket in the 2006/07 season and I'm still a member, so try to get to games, but live near Wolverhampton now, so not as easy to get to games.
You wanted Kaka, but you got Bellamy, oh City are a MASSIVE club!
