Manchester United and Arsenal are amongst the teams named as the 'biggest' in their county, but fans aren't completely on board with the map.
Fans love to say their club is 'bigger' than their rivals, especially the local ones, and it's a form of bragging rights that rarely changes hands.
Of course if you asked most United fans if they'd rather be 'bigger' or more successful than Manchester City right now, they'd surely all give up their size.
One map on Reddit caused a lot of discussion, as it pictured the 'biggest' team in each area of England, but there's certainly some discrepancies.
Between the fact that some county lines seem to be more modern than others and the arguments for which team really is 'bigger,' and the Reddit post caused some controversy.
"What do you mean by "biggest" though? Biggest fan base? Biggest success? Biggest ground? Biggest capital?" one person commented, getting to the heart of the nonsense 'biggest' argument.
"What do you mean by “county”? Greater London is separated out, but none of the other independent city areas," another said, in pointing out another issue.
Certainly the club in Yorkshire and the rest of the north east created a lot of argument, with people questioning the inclusions of Middlesbrough and Sheffield United especially.
"How are the boundaries defined? That would decide whether or not Middlesbrough is in North Yorkshire. It's ceremonially part of Yorkshire but administratively part of Teesside. York City could be in there separately as it's a unitary authority and, depending how you look at it, not part of North Yorkshire either," one person asked.
There's certainly plenty of debate to be had between fans, who do you think is the biggest team in your county?
Of course, Manchester City fans won't care that their rivals are deemed as being 'bigger' than them, in fact they'd probably wear it as a badge of honour.
The city has certainly been blue since the weekend, after Pep Guardiola's side were 4-1 winners against their local rivals, which saw a virtual meltdown from Ralf Rangnick's side.
Size clearly doesn't matter...
