Well worth a read. Is anyone able to copy the link properly?

Go the link and vote no I have never changed my allegiance, or well be honest if you have changed ask yourself "Am I really Claret?"

How do you change your allegiance?
To quote the great Leonard Nimoy...it's just not logical...

I have Supported Burnley for 47 years but have no connection to the town other than my dad supported then in the late 50's.
I was born and still live in Wigan and so many people expected me to change my allegiance to them when they got into the Premier League.
They still cant understand Why I dont support my home town, but hate them.
To me it is simple I am Claret through and through and could never support anyone but Burnley
