Can anyone please tell me ? Thanks.
For some reason I thought It might have been Sunderland, but I guess I am wrong !
It`s a fair assumption to suppose it`s Newcastle; but I`ve always thought their team remained unknown so as not to upset any folks in the North East; and this is why I don`t think it`s Newcastle because in this clip Terry mentions about their teams lack of chances of being in Europe; but when this was aired Newcastle had already won the Inter City Fairs Cup in`69. Just my thoughts fellas. Relevant dialogue from around 7-30 onwards.
Newcastle, there was the episode where Terry was nicked for fighting with Rangers fans and met Bob in the police station.
I agree ... I'm certain it was Newcastle United ...
I remember the Rangers match dialogue ...
and the scene where Bob was wearing the black and white striped Newcastle United shirt.

Many thanks to you all, as per usual the Britmovie community comes up with the goods.
I recognised one scene in Newcastle. It was in the district of Gosforth, in the centre, around the corner from my old school. Looked like they'd just come out of the library. The swimming baths are just a bit further up that street, whose name eludes me now.
Useless information - at the time, Mrs Fell lived next door to one of the members of the Fairs Cup winning team.
Do they actually mention Rangers fans or just Scots/Glaswegians?. I cant remember.Newcastle, there was the episode where Terry was nicked for fighting with Rangers fans and met Bob in the police station.
One of the 'northern' ones I guess. . .
I always thought they supported Newcastle but after reading the thread I wasn't sure ,especially after seeing the photo above Terrys bed which is obviously Sunderland .I found an article on the BBC's inside out webpage from 2004 ,where It states the" likely lads " supported Newcastle and it seems to be borne out in a Q&A with Rodney bewes mentioning the names of Bobby moncur and supermac .James Bolam was from Sunderland ,maybe this explains the picture ,as I cannot see a mackem having a picture of their detested rivals on his wall
I am now curious as to whether there is an episode where NU are mentioned by name ,whether it be TLL or WHTTLL .I know WHTTLL exists in its entirety , but think some episodes from TLL were destroyed
Rodney bewes mentions Newcastle united' moncur and Malcolm McDonald in the "No Hiding Place" episode........
skip to around 3:40
One of the best, classic Likely Lads' football scenes ...
