    From the day you were born, list your nearest football league ground as you have moved round the country, with your local non-league grounds added if closer. And say whether you got to see the Reds at your local ground (not Oakwell, obviously!) This site will help you.

    http://www.hopewiser.com/proximity-search/

    Mine are
    Barnsley
    Liverpool
    Brighton (although closer to Whithawk FC for a while)
    Arsenal (although closer to Hendon FC for a while)
    Barnet (alternating with Arsenal again as Barnet kept dropping in and out of the league)
    Barnsley (although Penistone Church FC is nearer)

    Never actually got round to going to Hendon, although often intended to, and never got round to going to Whitehawk, even though it was more or less just across the road. They were a few divisions lower then though. Went to all the others, but found it very difficult to get excited by games when Barnsley weren't involved. Got to see Barnsley at Arsenal when they were my nearest ground and Barnsley reserves at Anfield when that was the closest. Actually, I saw Barnsley schoolboys beat Sefton boys at Anfield in the youth cup too.

    West Bromwich Albion (minor surprise - thought it was Wolves. Close one though.)
    York City
    Portsmouth

    And then after that it's been Birmingham City in about eight different houses/flats (with a very brief month when I think I was just about closer to Villa). I've seen Barnsley at Blues, West Brom and Portsmouth.

    Barnsley,
    WBA,
    Reading,
    Barnsley.

    Strange but true story:
    Lived in South Brum in mid 1996, closest ground WBA won 2-1, the first away game of our promotion season to the Prem. Then moved to Reading about 6 months before beating them in Easter 97, the month before we got promoted to the Prem.

    Happy days . ;)
