there are more things to life than football imoif people don't attend for work reasons or they've moved away or whatever then fair enoughbut i doubt anyone who posts on vip2 (and thus has a computer and an internet subscription - and probably a sky+ box) can't afford £35 a year to go and watch their side, especially with the amount of games nowadays and how rare it is clubs sell out every game

But what if the person could not afford to go?If it was not for your parents having the finances to take you and who ever you went with to Villa park would that mean you would not be a true fan?Would you also put football as a higher priority to you then your financial state?Not everyone who goes to matches is a true fan imo lots of people i know go Chelsea every week just because they can afford to were as others know lots about the team follow them on non-match days etc who i would class as more true fans

if someone can afford a computer, games console, internet connection etc but can't afford £15 for a carling cup ticket a season then football is obviously so low down on their list of priorities that they aren't a "true fan".and lol@ parents paying, get a job

nah she's probably not. just like the corporates at Chelsea aren't proper fans.but if someone never goes to watch their team play because they'd rather sit at home and watch it on sky they aren't 'true fans'.just like the 350 people who will go to rococo's bar in birmingham city centre to watch us on some saudi arabian channel against fulham & spend £20 getting smashed out their faces when we have 3,000 seats unsold aren't true fans.

When someone is a match goer it doesn't automaticly make them a true fanits just one of the criteria that goes towards it. Fc united have fans from sewden who regulary get to our games. so living in the same city and never being to a game is unacceptable, if you cant get to first team games get yourself to reserves games.

What about people who support one team would admire and follow there rivalsFor example if someone was to support Liverpool and say their second fav team was Man Utd could they still be classed as a true fan.HmmI dont think so?

Tbh theres only one ting that makes you a fan like no other and thats being a moderator in the sports room on vip2, if your not one of these you are a lower class citizen and fan, you do not hold wieght with man and have a knowledge of a fish. Being a sports room mod makes you the most passionate fan and legendary supporter in ur clubs history, it means you goto games when you actually dont, it means you can suck your heroes d*ck off and it means you can get top quallity inside information and liase with your clubs staff.

certain people on this forum need to take note of No.3 and stop bitching and calling for peoples heads when their team drops a few points or certain players have a bad run of game
