When you look at that it shows what a nonsense it is to describe City v FGR and Cheltenham as a derby!
Of course it's a nonsense. Cheltenham to Exeter than is 28 miles further than the distance between Villa Park and Old Trafford. Can't wait for next year's Brumchester Derby.

Weird how we class Cheltenham as a derby match but not Portsmouth. As the crow flies there can't be much in it.

Even weirder that a section of your neighbours' support do class Portsmouth as a derby match. Weirdos.
Yep very strange. City v Cheltenham is only really mentioned as a derby by the media, it means absolutely nothing to either set of supporters other than the 3 points on offer. Whereas there's some actual debate amongst Argyle fans whether Exeter or Portsmouth are their main rival's. Very strange.

I'm assuming Pompey fans only regard Southampton as their rivals and Argyle is just another game?

Some Gargoyles also class Bristol City ahead of us in the rivalry stakes although I doubt they see much past Rovers and even then Cardiff before even thinking about the Gargs.
