Though I'd add, don't know if anyone debating between those two options can be called an "ace"; and I could imagine if he's focusing on his masters, he might prefer a less professional option.

I know I passed on even playing hockey when doing my masters in Newcastle, because I didn't want to commit the time to it when paying so much for international tuition...and because their expectations of me being Canadian were maybe too high.

First step would be for them to stop worrying about who should support who. Feels smalltime to be so petty and territorial like that (and I know every club have fans guilty of it).
I totally agree. I mean a Liverpool fan from Dover is a bit of a stretch, but a Sunderland fan from North Shields shouldn't raise any eyebrows.

I lived in Dover for a couple of years and there were a fair few Liverpool fans there at the time and most had familial connections to Liverpool.

Never saw a Mackem in Dover though. Too close to Yewrope?

Hope you've recovered from that.

I know loads of Liverpool fans and some claim a family reason but it's normally a bit flimsy.

Know a few Mackems down this way as well. Was playing in the same team as one during the '6 in a row' spell <puke>
