Spurs Officially The 5th Biggest Premiership Side

Image for Spurs Officially The 5th Biggest Premiership Side

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.

    On the subject of number of supporters in the UK, I read somewhere that we were in third place, after ManU and L/pool with 1,065,000. Now where is my Parka?

    I’d be really surprised if Spurs actually had less support than Chelsea.

  • gez says:

    The other flaw in the measurements is that Bolton and Wigan are both in the bottom three but this could be related to the fact that there is only one computer per 20,000 people in these two medieval towns. Wigan actually flags as a spelling mistake in this text editor.

    Interesting stuff. Word is that Beckham engineered this whole shebang and he rang Jamie to see if it was a goer :wassat:
