Which club has the best fans in England?
That’s a question that varies from person to person. There’s no right or wrong answer.
It’s certainly a controversial topic but one person that has given their opinion is FIFA streamer, @the_pieface.
Jack, a Plymouth fan, has used the popular website ‘Tiermaker’ to rank the fans of every club in the Premier League and Football League from best to worst.
Clubs were placed into seven categories from ‘A+’ to ‘Please go bust’.
His opinion was based on his away days and knowledge of the fans. Club size was not taken into account.
You can view his rankings below:
A+: Crewe, Charlton Athletic, Blackpool, Spurs, Newcastle, Leeds, Plymouth
A: Aston Villa, Mansfield, Chelsea, Man United, Accrington Stanley, Portsmouth, Shrewsbury, Southend, Nottingham Forest
B: Sheffield Wednesday, Bradford, Lincoln, Rotherham, Cheltenham, West Ham, Everton, Blackburn, Leicester, Doncaster, Sheffield United, Wolves, Bournemouth, Bristol City, Northampton
C: Birmingham, Huddersfield, Liverpool, Grimsby, Morecambe, Stoke, QPR, Watford, Macclesfield, Walsall, Carlisle, Newport County
D: Oldham, Preston, Barnsley, Man City, Bolton, Middlesbrough, Southampton, Swansea, Tranmere
F: Coventry, Colchester, Crystal Palace, Ipswich, Norwich, Millwall, Luton, Leyton Orient, Rochdale
PLEASE GO BUST: AFC Wimbledon, Salford, Fulham, Cambridge, Gillingham, Burton Albion, Burnley, Oxford, Cardiff, Arsenal, Swindon, Brentford, Brighton, Fleetwood, Wycombe, Reading, Peterbrough, Scunthorpe, Port Vale, Bristol Rovers, Stevenage, Exeter, Forest Green, Sunderland, Wigan, Derby, Crawley, MK Dons, Hull City
So only seven clubs made it into the highest bracket.
Included in those seven were two Premier League clubs: Newcastle and Spurs.
Plymouth were one of the seven, too, but we suspect there may be some bias to that pick.
Elsewhere, Chelsea and Manchester United are both in the tier below.
That’s higher than Liverpool, who are placed in C, while Man City are a tier further down in D.
Fans of 29 clubs feature in the ‘PLEASE GO BUST’ tier, including Arsenal and Sunderland.
