Yeah if you are born in Stourbridge get down your local club and watch some Southern League football.

I hope all those Gooners who live in Highbury quit supporting the club when they moved to Holloway!

bit different highbury to holloway than hertfordshire/surrey/essex/london/kent/cornwall to manchester!

All of a sudden you don't have to support your local club!

The simple fact is most people decide who they are going to support long before they have a firm grasp of British geography. It's your favorite player or who your Dad first takes you to see not who is closest to where you were born/live that counts.

you should be geographically close to your club, surely in the same bloody county.  how can you have an affinity for a team in manchester if you're from southern england?  do you understand the personality of the city, the club and its fans?  no.  can somebody from hull or sheffield understand the personality of spurs or arsenal?  no. 

how do you go and watch your team play?  travel hundreds of miles every week.  more often than not, no.

seems our definitions of supporting a club may be enitrely different.  learning the history and spouting off on a forum does not make you a fan.  knowing the club and going to games does.

it highlights the number of once in a blue moon plastic fans they have.

I'm used to support United when I was younger and lived in Manchester. Now I just appreciate good football.

I'd be surprised if United had a higher % of fans travelling from more than 10 miles away than say City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs or Liverpool.

Kids latch on to the big clubs long before their father has bought them a UK atlas. It doesn't mean they are not fans. Calling them plastics is just a crude attempt to deride opposition supporters, it shows you insecurities.
Report steview84 August 14, 2013 6:24 PM BST
what insecurities could it possibly show?

i agree that kids support the team their fathers teach them to.  however the father is the initial plastic fan and the title is passed onto the kid.

It's probably not pc to say it, but a kid following what their father tells them to (if they themselves were not from that place), goes from being a plastic fan to a sp@stic fan.

surely growing up hundreds of miles from the city means you miss being with other fans.  won't be socialising with them all the time, talking about the football, going to the game with mates.  in reality you're not a fan at all, you're a glory hunter.
Report ZingZangZong August 14, 2013 7:05 PM BST
What insecurities?

The insecurities that lead you call people you don't really know, even children, plastics and deride their choices.

I'd say that showed huge insecurities.
Report steview84 August 14, 2013 7:07 PM BST
if you view it as an insult i'd say it highlights your own insecurities.

i'm merely pointing out that they're not real fans, have no idea of the culture of the areas of the clubs and pick them purely on success.  all my points are true.  if you take them as an insult i'd suggest you have feelings of shame at your choice.
Report ZingZangZong August 15, 2013 9:03 AM BST
If you believe calling someone a plastic is not an insult then you are either a little bit thick or just plain lying.

Not real fans as they have no idea of the culture of the areas of the clubs?

Why would a 7 year old consider the culture of say Southampton before cheering on Ricky Lambert who is himself a Scouser!

The Premiership, La Liga, SerieA are broadcast all over the globe. Guess what! There are going to be Barca, Chelsea and Juve fans down your street and few of them will know anything about the Spanish Civil war, The swinging 60s or the shroud of Turin.

they're coming from another country with no decent football teams.  you have many to choose from in london but simply select one hundreds of miles away and in a city with a completely different culture.  glory hunting supreme!

after visiting barcelona a few years ago, loving the city, the nou camp and the way the team play i avidly follow them and like to see them win.  same with fiorentina.  i would not however consider myself a real fan of these teams.

I don't think Rooney is going anywhere. I doubt whether Chelsea are really after him at all. Is Jose just playing mind games with United and indeed Rooney?

United are certainties to finish in the top 4.
