I am An Aston Villa fan but I like to support Roma as my wife and I went to Rome for our honeymoon, I buy a shirt every year and now get to watch them on BTSport a lot.
Do you guys have a foreign second team you like to follow and why?

Napoli is my European team. I see them as my second foreign team.

As far as I'm aware, there is nothing wrong with following a second team, but I wouldn't say I'd support 2 if they were from the same continent.

For example, I support Napoli and Universitario. Universitario is my family team and Napoli was the first team that really brought me into the sport. I can't really unattach myself from either, and they are from different continents so its not like I'll ever see them play each other in a competitive match. I do follow several other teams from the same continent though. In South America I follow Atletico Nacional and Boca. In Europe I follow Liverpool but I only actually support Napoli and Universitario.

My team is São Paulo (from Brazil) and I actually don't support any team other than that but internationally (for me) I have "sympathy" for Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund.

If your looking for a team to "sympathise" with then try Villa, I dont think Man City need your sympathy lol

Heading to the game this Sunday although so far my favourite team in Brazil is Zeiro!! Mainly because someone gave me a free ticket, then someone else gave me a free hat.

My favourite team worldwide would be Santos Laguna; the majority of my friends in Mexico support them; I saw about 5 matches of theirs home and away when I was in Mexico.

Won the Mexican play-offs last year which was a surprise.

Yeah, they became shit when Corona decided to pull their backing hence a big sell off.

Peralta went to C.A
Darwin Quintero a year later to C.A
Baloy to Morelia I think.

Shame, but I still dont understand the Mexican relegation system despite my friends explaining it to me!!! I dont think they are in danger yet.

Was going to go to the Corinthians game tonight, but I can't be bothered, apparently its a new build stadium so far away from the city centre so gonna give it a miss.

That's nice. Hopefully a good match to São Paulo since the adversary is Vasco. And Cruzeiro was being very classy past seasons, it's a pity they lost many good players but after the visibility of two followed national titles it's really hard to keep them in Brazil.

I like Rangers because they're my dad's team. When I was younger I had Barcelona and Inter Milan shirts.

dont get it. in terms of shit teams or what?

I think he means that 99% of your posts seem to be about the English national squad - you must follow them quite a lot to have so much to say about them.

How is De Arrascaeta doing for them?

Well usually you are just telling us how much better than England Germany are so you mention both in 99% of your posts :cool1:

Germany produced Bastian Schweinsteiger so I will always hold the country in very high regard.

They've went down in my estimation after getting beat by Shane fucking Long the other day. They can all go to hell apart from Schumacher, Becker, Graf and Klopp of course! And one or two porn stars that helped me get through puberty! :D

Orient ought to be first...

Used to like Palermo and made sure to watch matches of theirs when I could.

Havent for a few years now though

Ditto to that. Always liked to catch Serie A growing up and my mate was from Sicily, used to tell me about Palermo and... I didn't really care. It's the pink kit.

Roma are my second team for family reasons. I wouldn't say I really support them though, just buy the odd shirt, watch them on BT Sport a bit and keep up with their results. I never find myself getting particularly animated when they score/concede/win/lose though.
