I support the mighty Villa. Except not so mighty anymore. What do you get a kick out of more? A Bon Jovi concert or watching your team pummel your rival - live at the stadium! Seeing us batter Birmingham 5-1 to virtually send them down was probably the best euphoria I've had.

Whats your view?

Rangers.

Seeing them hammer Celtic is one of life's great pleasures. Even the build up and the aftermath has you buzzing for a week, a Jovi gig doesn't even come close.

I'm a huge Burnley fan. Nickolai we can bond over playing in Claret & Blue haha.

I find it really hard to choose, I look forward to Jovi gigs from when they're announced pretty much whereas there's matches every week. I think both are fairly comparable though, I can't get to as many matches as I'd like so there's something to be said about the whole day surrounding each event that adds to the excitement and the buzz.

Newcastle United.

One year ago tomorrow was the most euphoric I've ever felt. My first local derby - 5-1 at home to sunderland. F*cking hell. I love football at times.

But at times it's so incredibly depressing. Clough (i think, someone correct me if it was someone else) summed it up the best when he was asked "is football a matter of life and death?" and he answered "It's much more important than that"

Obviously that's a little over the top but some people just don't get it, my mum can never understand why after watching Burnley play pathetically and being soundly beaten a team that aren't anything special my Dad and I are in a bad mood for the rest of the day haha

A few years back i used to support Man Utd but i dont really follow football anymore. I think the players are over paid to fall over and play dead until they get the ball

Bill Shankly said that.

Man City for me, so last weekend was quite good....

Related question: What is you most cherished footballing memory?

It's a toss up between:

Seeing Rangers beat Fiorentina to qualify for the UEFA cup final a few years back was special.

or

Helicopter Sunday as it's now dubbed. Last game of the season, Celtic only had to win to take the title and were on course to do so at 80 minutes even though Rangers were winning their game comfortably.

A helicopter was planted halfway between both stadiums (Rangers were away to Hibs that day and Celtic were at Motherwell) and it took off in the direction of Parkhead only to have to turn around (caught on camera ) and head for Edinburgh when Celtic lost an equaliser. They ended up losing the game in the end but it was all over by then anyway.

I was working in a bar that day, clocked off just after the games finished and got absolutely shitfaced. Myself and my buddy who was out just kept looking at each other and bursting into fits of laughter all night because we couldn't believe it.

Incredible.

The Packers, only because my stepdad agreed that if they win every game and the Superbowl that we get to take a cruise. Otherwise I really have no interest in football at all.

Oh without a doubt. Newcastle's relegation in 2009 and the sale of Andy Carroll to Liverpool are probably my worst memories (and they're very, very recent, too). I remember at both times I felt so disillusioned that nothing mattered. I got a new job on the same day as Carroll's sale and could hardly celebrate. I was so gutted.
