Methinks Andy follows not the Manchester United football team (like I follow the Seattle Sounders instead of Portland Trailblazers).
Right Name but Newcastle is the City. Manchester’s closer to the other Coast.
[!] [spoiler Alert]
Andy supports United.
Andy will travel anywhere for a pound and a free drink. But what ales him might score him a stout gaol. For which he would be bitter about and be foaming mad. But Andy is a draft sort of person. And like football, Andy bounces around a lot till he all tapped out.
I think the English Premier League wrapped up its season yesterday, so this strip is a bit late.
Any team Andy backs is bound to be relegated.
! Hartlepool has the Rovers.
As a lifelong United fan, I remember some of the biggest grudge matches were between City ( Manchester City ) and United ( Manchester United ).
Sort of like the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees or the Chicago Cubs vrs, the Chicago White Sox.
Of course, if you were a Red Devil, you also loathed Chelsea and Arsenal with a fervor equal to that of your hatred for Man City.
! The Andy Capp forum would be an apt spot for any anecdotes on hooliganism.
I’m a Newcastle United supporter. Rafa is probably the best manager they have ever had. Apart from Sir Bobby Robson (R.I.P)
I don’t care much for any other sports like cricket or tennis. Football is the best.
I’m not really big on sports, but I do enjoy rooting for local teams. (By local, I mean teams in my state.) Sort of a hometown pride thing.
[!] …there actually is a Hartlepool United FC so i don’t want to have the last word—but would HUFC be on Telly?!? go United.
