'If It's Football, It's Vital'

So Who Are The Second Best Set Of Fans Then?

One of our posters, Cornwall Claret recently contacted the site with an idea for an article.

He wrote:

'Having watched Spurs v Madrid, my family being Spurs supporters, I could not fail to be very impressed by the Spurs fans! They never stopped singing and it seemed every one of them stayed to the end to give their team a standing ovation as they left the field, even though they had lost 5-0.

This was so unlike so many so called supporters who leave in droves if they think their team has lost'

Editors Note: Just got to mention Bolton here after the Stoke FA Cup Semi-Final at Wembley!

We all know of course that Clarets supporters are the best set of fans but who would you rate to be the second best and why?

You could also flip the coin and let us know which set of fans would pick up the wooden spoon in your opinion. Which set of fans really get on your wobbly bits and why?

Let us know below this thread and we will add your comments to the article.

Think we may have to bar Rovers as the worst for obvious reasons..because they are!! lol. Port Vale brought an impressive following to Turf Moor, I thought this season. Millwall was the scariest place I went to this season but that may have been my own mind playing tricks based on the horror stories I had heard. Very intimidating place though. West Ham lot cheer me up, enjoyed banter with them last season

Very Interesting article. My early thoughts are from a non-claret game. A few years back I went to watch Donny - Southend second leg at the keepmoat. Southend were completely battered 5-0 but their fans stayed and backed their team vocally. This is perhaps something that can be done in a forum at more length?

I should have mentioned Bournemouth for their attitude when EH joined the Clarets. Also Bolton were very much in my thoughts for their terrible Wembley behaviour.

Leeds fans at the turf were awesome. There performance in the 2nd half helped bring them back and win. I can't stand Leeds but this season imo they have been the best at the Turf. Away this season would be Leicester, how funny were the chants, Should have gone to the National etc etc, vocal support, humorous and very topical! I may give further thought to the worst.......lol

Agree with VR about Leeds fans. I saw the Swans play Leeds off the park , but all you could hear for the last 20 minutes of the match was the constant chanting of 'We love Leeds' , and this when they were 3-0 down. They also had 2 blokes dressed up as the 118 blokes off the telly, which was hillarious as well. Hope they're still chanting on Saturday when we're 3-0 up.

The vocal backing, and numbers Leeds bring is fantastic. However, It is the only ground I can remember being threatened at if the result didnt go the 'Leeds way' - and this happened twice!
Claretdale
Have always been impressed with United's away following and, like Cornwall, think Spurs supporters have been impressive recently. Mind you, I'm not surprised they stayed around in Madrid as it's a long way home from there and I don't think the tube extends that far ! However, my vote goes to fans of any club that is struggling on the pitch. Fans who turn up week after week - whatever the result - deserve immense credit. Easy to support a club that is doing well, we all know that it is a bit harder when things aren't so good.

Certainly not Cardiff fans. Last home game of the season, play off place secure and the team bood off the pitch.
