WHICH club is the biggest in London?
That debate has been sparked once again by a fan who produced a graphic detailing the biggest club in each county in England.
The supporter selected Arsenal for London, but many Chelsea fans believe that is the wrong choice.
That is not the only region that has caused controversy with Sheffield Wednesday fans bemused that rivals United have been picked for South Yorkshire.
Elsewhere, Colchester have been chosen over fierce rivals Southend despite the Shrimpers boasting double the average attendances of their neighbours this season, and in a division below too.
Further north Lincoln fans have the bragging rights over rivals Grimbsy as the Imps have been controversially selected as the biggest side in Lincolnshire.

But fans in London have been the most vocal in defending their team's right to be the best in the capital.
The Gunners traditionally boast the best support in London along with the most trophies, and Mikel Arteta has claimed no club in the city is bigger.

But with Arsenal in the title race this term having collected 24 points from an available 27, they could have a Premier League trophy to parade around come the end of the season.
The Gunners are sat top, edging out defending champions Manchester City by one point.
Chelsea, meanwhile, are lagging eight points behind.
However, Blues fans will be feeling more confident with Graham Potter at the wheel.
They've got off to an unbeaten start under the Englishman and stuck five past Serie A champions AC Milan across two games in the Champions League.
One fan wrote: "Funny how the only club from the capital that has won two European championships doesn’t feature."
But an Arsenal fan said: "Lol so many pressed Chelsea fans. London has more Arsenal fans it's a fact. Chelsea has more international fans i.e US. But Arsenal IS the club with the largest London fanbase. Deal with it."
A third football supporter added: "Is this one of those parody accounts? Imagine thinking that Sheffield United are bigger than Wednesday.”
