My team West Bromwich Albion are playing at West Ham today so faced with nothing to do this afternoon but listen in on the radio I've knocked up a geeklist of games for each of the Premiership clubs. Feel free to add others you think appropiate/insulting or just plain amusing.

Wigan. Impressively second at time of writing and all this from a town that isn't even a football town - Rugby League is the sport of choice up there. Selected in honour of Wigan Casino's legendary place in the history of Northern Soul.

Manchester City. Manchester's main club (and now with the league position to prove it) - City seem to draw their support from the city itself, United from outlying areas. I also considered The Psychobox in honour of the City manager (and England legend) Stuart "Psycho" Pearce.

Bolton Bonaza. The box claims that this is "exciting" - clearly not related to the club then. Manager "Big" Sam Allardyce is from my home town BTW.

Charlton Athletic, who play at The Valley. A lesser known fact about Charlton is that in the 1980s Athletic fans managed to get planning permission to move the club back to The Valley by standing in the local elections, getting elected and then just making it happen. Result!

West Ham, nicknamed both the Irons and the Hammers. This is a rare game on this list as I've actually played it - it's a favourite of our wargaming group and the Peter Pig 1:600 scale ironclads are beautiful models.

Newcastle United. No doubt Shearer's have wood for sheep.

(I was tempted to include Kingmaker as our groups copy has two Newcastles, under-lyme and upon-Tyne but declines to differentiate between the two which confuses us let alone people from outside of the UK)

Liverpool. Champions of Europe yet only 13th in the Premership at time of writing.

The 'pool caused a massive argument on my holiday/vacation in Wales this year when the menfolk (us) decided that watching an English team in the European cup final was a bit more important than going out to dinner with the womenfolk or something similar. Things were not helped when the womenfolk sent a representative in at halftime to suggest that since 'pool were 3 down already perhaps it was a done thing and could we go out now?

How we laughed about it later...

(For those who don't know, Liverpool scored 3 for no reply in the second half then won on penalties. We were rather pleased to put it mildly)

West Bromwich Albion of the English Premiership.

My club. What more can I say without introducing a massive amount of bias?

Anyway it was this game or Albion:Land of Faerie and I didn't fancy the sound of that one.

Everton. I really struggled to get any game related to Everton, so was reduced to googling for Everton-related trivia. Goodison Park (Everton's home - although I didn't know until I started searching that they used to play at some place called Anfield before Liverpool were even founded, and also they've never been sited in Everton itself) is the only English league ground to have hosted a World Cup semi-final.

Also not only has Goodison Park hosted more top flight matches than any other English ground, it had the first dugouts in England (copied from Aberdeen in 1930) and is the only ground with a church built into it.
