Well, he can hardly claim that he supports his local team, can he ?
You know there are times I wish I could not support my local team I do admire many teams like Man Utd and Aston Villa but draw the line at calling myself a fan of them (I admire there play style and players). I know some people say it doesn't matter that you don't support your local team but I was brought up in believing you should (or your dads team...both apply to my choice of Forest )
I support my great grandfather's local team - Woolwich Arsenal. My local, local team are Dagenham & Redbridge and I support them too.

Actually, our old dark red - what Arsenal now call "redcurrent" - shirts came from Nottingham Forest. Forest donated kit to the club when the founders, before the club was professional, could not find any.
