What is a football supporter? It’s a question that non-football fans ask me from time to time and it’s difficult to verbalize. I guess the simplest definition that I can give is this: A football supporter is any individual who displays allegiance to a football club. The tricky part is trying to put into words the passion that forges an allegiance and the bond that exists between the individual and the club. It’s more than being a fan or rooting for a favorite player. It’s something deep down that twists and squeezes your insides for 90 minutes during a match. It’s the elation and agony that accompanies a team over the course of a season. It’s the willingness to stand behind a franchise, year after year, regardless of success.
