Which English Football Team Has the Best Fans? If you’re a football fan, there’s no doubt about it: Liverpool’s fans are the most passionate. And, with 52 league titles since 1889, they are a force to be reckoned with. If you’re not a fan of any of the teams in the league, it’s probably because they are the least liked. Regardless of your personal opinions, it’s worth considering the following teams and their fans.
The supporters’ trust of Tottenham Hotspur has criticised Liverpool’s fans for their “Sign on” chant. The club plays in one of the poorest parts of London, so they have repeatedly called for the chant to be banned. After a 1-1 draw with Spurs, Liverpool fans weakened their title hopes and ended Tottenham’s unbeaten streak. Son Heung-min gave Spurs the lead before Luis Diaz equalised.
If there is one club in England that has the most passionate fans, it’s Newcastle United. The only top-tier football team in Newcastle, the fans of Newcastle United are intense and passionate. Every home and away game is sold out and packed full of Geordies (natives of Newcastle) who are very difficult to understand and love their team dearly. The intensity of Newcastle’s fans is a reflection of the city itself, a chilly and working class area.
When it comes to fans, no club in the world has more loyal fans than the English football team Arsenal. With 113 million supporters, the club is second only to Manchester United in popularity. With a billion dollar owner, Stan Kroenke, the team is financially stable and has the resources to compete with other big clubs. With money to spend on top players, Arsenal has a large following and is renowned for its team spirit. The team beat Manchester United in the FA Cup final in 2005, and won the Premier League in 2003 and 2008.
Fans of football clubs in London are notoriously vocal and passionate about their team. Chelsea is no different. The club is headquartered in the poshest part of London, and its supporters include notable celebrities and football personalities such as Will Ferrell and Michael Caine. In fact, Will Ferrell owns the Los Angeles FC, and has always shown genuine support for his favorite team. As for Chelsea, he’s been a long-term supporter, telling one reporter that he watched a match on a “big high-def TV”.
If there is a team that has more fans than any other English team, it would have to be Liverpool. After all, the Reds have been champions of Europe six times, and are home to some of the world’s biggest celebrities. Some of these celebrities are fans of Liverpool: Nelson Mandela, Angelina Jolie, Samuel L Jackson, and LeBron James. Other famous fans of Liverpool include Dr. Dre (who has been a fan since 1988), Gary Barlow, and Robbie Williams, not to mention the links between the club and Soccer Aid.
There’s no question that West Ham fans are delusional and have the worst attitude about the club’s success. The ownership are clueless when it comes to running a football club and the fans’ entitlement seems to be linked to the team’s glory years of the sixties and seventies and the mid 90s. And what about their infamous academy, which was praised as producing some of the best young players in the league?
