Again, sweeping generalisations. Of course there are premier league fans like that but there are many others who aren’t. I know a number who are born and bred Liverpool, Man U and Spurs fans who are not like that at all. I’ve met many on trains on the way back from Scunny matches over the years and I’ve not met one like that. If you want to laugh at those fans in the pubs you mention fine, I get that, but for every one of them there is a decent supporter.
I think there are plenty of what you call “decent” supporters but I don’t think there are as many as there are the pub/TV supporters, that’s precisely why these big clubs think they can get away with their plans – because they’re only interested in TV viewers.
The supporters I’m thinking of would probably accuse you of being holier than thou, and I wouldn’t argue with them.
Maybe. Maybe I’ve got a point.
