- Bristol City
You'd find plenty of United and City shirts in OldhamThe thing is, Bristol is quite far away from other major Cities. A place like Oldham who has both Manchester clubs on their doorsteps, you won't see a United or Man City shirt because its in Oldham and its frowned upon as wrong as its rivalry if you like. We don't have that attitude down south which is frustrating!
On the other hand is arguè that the non league football in the south, and particularly south west to be of a relatively decent standard. Of course that's not really something to brag aboutThis is a far bigger problem in the south than it is in the north. Imagine if a place like Burnley was in the south, they'd be non-league standard. In southern terms, based on town population, it's like Weston-Super-Mare reaching the top flight. I am jealous of the support teams have up north.

Surely you aren't including London as one of the 4? Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs? Are they massively underachieving?Dunno, but someone seems to know as show by the link above and below.
London > Manchester > Birmingham > Edinburgh > Bristol.
Four out of those Five most important UK Cities have massively underachieving football clubs. The one that isn't is in the North of England.
