Anyone follow Non League Football? I know a few who do even beyond my occasional jaunt with COLFC. I know a few who watch Prescot Cables etc and I went to see COLFC in a winning final + them beat Prescot Cables away in the FA Cup Prelims.

As the EPL has become a monster and football more commercialised (Everton's stadium move) and more sanitized atmosphere and expensive, I've been to watch COLFC more. They are making a film about people who've done this including ex season ticket holders of Liverpool/Everton who gave it up for Non League, Community owned/run grass roots football clubs where you can actually drink beer, sing and afford tickets and mix with players and management without fuss.

Forthcoming film about COLFC

I don't really like the idea of supporting more than one team. If I went to support my local non-league side (Bootle) then I'd only be supporting them because they're a non-league side and felt it was some sort of 'duty'. It could never replicate the feelings/emotions from watching Everton.

And that's not a passive dig at you Thomas with your Celtic thing, just the way I see it.

Sure, I sort of meet you half way with I either pack in Everton for the reasons stated and watch my local non league side.

Ever considered giving Everton up for Bootle or been to see them play?

For me that would mean a League of Wales side and there isn't a local one other than my old university side.

I used to go a lot to Halifax Town games, particularly after they went bust and started to rebuild from scratch. It was great fun, and a completely different kind of atmosphere to a Premier League game. I live a bit further away now so rarely get to see them.

I support (and have a season ticket to) Sydney FC. That's a bit like non-league at times.

I'm being unfair. The quality has increased dramatically in the 6 years I've been here. They try to play 'good' football, in the sense that they keep it on the ground, pass and move, play out from the back. Very little long ball silliness. it's played in summer over here though, so you can imagine the impact that has on the pace of the game, when it's a minimum of 20 degrees.

When I lived in Crosby I used to have a Season ticket for Everton and go to marine when Everton were away.

Nice little ground. Played there once in a charity match. The pitch was rock hard!!

Brought up watching Northwich Vics from being a baby carried in. Dad had a soft spot for Everton due to (then) the Irish connections. Ended up watching Everton as well. Sometimes afternoon at Goodison evening at Vics. Still do stuff for the 'new' Vics (1874 Northwich).
It's a totally different world but it doesn't conflict in any way. Both sides of the divide have something special that the other side can't give you. The sense of occasion, big crowd atmosphere and quality of PL on one side, the sense of really belonging and being a part of the club and meeting players etc on the other.
It makes me appreciate what we have at Everton on the one hand and frustrates me at the level of ignorance of the wider football world and what a spoilt selfish group PL fans can be on the other
The Himalayas has the Yeti, Norway has Trolls, America has Hillbillies. You, good people, are blessed with Shropshire.

Went to watch Prescot Cables on Saturday with a few of me mates just for something to do with there being no Everton/Liverpool on.

Was a boss laugh like and cheap for a ticket/bevvy.

Couldn't ever see myself swerving Everton for it like.

That ''COLFC'' just look like a firm of self righteous Kopites to me though.  Be arsed going to watch them.
