Another good read from our partner site HarryHotspur this morning. We may keep him on for another month afterall.
One familiar stick fans beat each other with is the the cry of ‘small club!’ Size in football seems to be a real worry to some people. Here’s what the boy Hotspur had to say…
Whilst randomly pressing buttons on the Barclays Premiership Fantasy Football website …it became evident that there was some almost interesting information there.
In the absence of a formal census, the figures you can pull out give a snapshot of support levels across the top flight teams. Now obviously this isn’t exactly the word of God. But it is the word of over 2 million people who when asked told the site who they supported.
The limitations are obvious. They don’t include the fans who don’t play this particular fantasy game nor those fans who’s support is undying, but they are too thick/impoverished/generally disinterested in the Internet.
Man Utd 605,562
Man City 63,846
Aston Villa 49,774
West Ham 44,502
Stoke City 12,185
West Brom 8,854
My observations would be as follows.
Newcastle fans think they are a big because when they walk around Newcastle city centre everyone’s wearing the shirt. Blackburn’s figures indicate Venky’s didn’t buy into a chicken dinner (winner) so much as a dead duck.
West Ham are even more deluded with their Olympic stadium plans than I thought they were. Chelsea are definitely suffering from a post Jose slump and lastly, virtually every second person you meet still claims to be a Man United fan!
