Who are the nearest clubs to you?

As we're unlikely to see terraces again at football, this is the virtual equivalent where you can chat to your hearts content about all football matters and, obviously, Arsenal in particular. This forum encourages all Gooners to visit and contribute so please keep it respectful, clean and topical.

3.23 miles CH Bristol City Football Club
107.07 miles Arsenal Football Club

107 miles to the Arsenal, eh? well, thanks to National Express and their £2 each way tickets when you book in advance, I've been able to frequent the Grove, and its a pretty cheap day out too! 8) (assuming I manage to get a lower tier ticket on my Silver membership!...'cos £60 to sit up in the heavens is a joke..I'd much rather be closer to the action! :roll: )

Alot of people on here don't seem to be following their local club... Are we all glory hunters then?? :roll: :roll: :roll: :banghead:
If your local club was Southend Utd would you support them mate?? :lol: :lol: Supported the Arse since 1968 and I'm not sure I even knew Southend Utd existed when I started supporting us and there certainly was'nt much glory to hunt at that time believe me :? :lol: Fortunately I did'nt have to wait long tho :wink: I did however used to go and watch Southend quite a lot in the 70s, they always had home games on a friday night in those days so I could go there then Highbury or away to support us on the saturday at that time. Football was a relatively cheap passtime in those days, could'nt afford to do that now :?
Wasn't having a pop, chas mate. It was a sarcastic reference to another thread where goonarmy basically accused all foreign Arsenal fans of being glory hunters and further stated that should only follow teams in their own country... :roll: :oops:

I realised that mate and hoped my reply was suitably <ahem> "humorous" so you did'nt think I was having a pop back lol. oh well, the written word does'nt always come out how you'd like it to I spose :cheers:

I can't believe what a lucky escape I've had. It's like when you change flights and the one you were originally booked on crashes in a fiery wreck.

I can now start supporting Chelski on the basis that they are the closest Premiership club to me :-P :oops: :lol:

I work within 1/4 mile of colchester Uniteds new ground (Very impressive ground for a small club). Ipswich's ground is 15 miles away.

Only 10,000 but it is really modern with exec boxes and everything else. It has a good club shop in the main stand and stacks of free parking around it.
