Who is the worst club in England to support?

Recommended Posts

As the title says.

For me, and not just because they're a local rival, it's Coventry City.

I feel for Oldham Athletic fans. Something like 17 years in the third year without even a sniff of promotion (or really, even relegation).

True but there are better transport links for us. Train to London from Newcastle is quicker than Plymouth to London despite being 50 miles more. We can get to all the northern clubs ok whereas there is nothing around Plymouth.

Norwich also have a single car lane out. Couldn't stand that.

I wouldn't know a lot, being away, but I keep hearing worst things about Milwall all the time. Still, to this day, haven't heard a decent thing about them or their fans.

How can a club be the "worst" club?  How does that work because I'd like to join in but I don't get it.  On what grounds are we determining this?

I'd say as in it's a chore to watch them play, the negative emotions whilst following them vastly out-weight the positive ones and there fans are only following them still because ''they have done since they were a kid''. 

Stef's Oldham shout is a good one in the sense that they've spent the last 17 years doing absolutely nothing whereas I threw Leyton Orient into the mix for obvious reasons.

Well in that case too many clubs are the worst clubs with some being worse than others if you get me.  Even some eternal Premier League clubs in my view.  It's not about winning, it's about competing or at least lending hope to the fans.  There has to be a reason behind even the following of a local team scenario...  Some clubs are just happy to survive in whatever they live in within any division.

Probably something like MK Dons. Or a club like Arsenal that has half of it's seats sold to foreign businessmen. :ph34r:

Not like regular fans could afford to see them play at the Emirates anyway. :ph34r:

To be honest Arsenal can be accused of this upto a certain extent because they have been shrouded in mediocrity for quite some time now.  Even then it would be harsh because the problem at Arsenal is structure and the acceptance from the majority shareholders getting what they want.  I don't want to take this on an Arsenal route from my part though.

Leyton Orient surely wins this hands down?

To watch, I'd say no, not us at all. 

Since roughly November/December time we've seen an increase in the number of our own youth players being blooded into the first team and though the situation may not be right for them to be blooded, the number of them may be too high, we might not be getting results and they may not be ready, we're actually attempting to play Football, these kids are trying their hearts out on a weekly basis against blokes anything up to double their ages and we actually have some kids in the squad who clearly look talented and have bags of potential. 

If it's worst team to be supporting at present, yes, it's probably us after what's happened here and the situation we've been put in by our owner.

That's for you to decide.

Ok then, I'll go with MK Dons too because I hate everything they stand for.  Although I don't know if that makes them the "worst" club for me.

What about Notts County. Everyone knows Derby and Forest, but you the Magpies. Rumors were that they got bought by a billionaire a few years ago, so they purchased an over age Sol Cambell, but all that fell through, and since they have remained irrelevant.

It's a myth from the 80s, perpetuated by sad little cockney boys who still wish we were 30 years behind..

Last season, there was a charitable collection for a terminally ill girl outside a Wanderers home match against Millwall. Apparently they took a bucket into the away end concourse and helped them raise even more. Their reputation precedes them, which is highly unfair - I've never had a bad experience with them.

That's the thing with Millwall, if you're a normal fan that just wants to go and watch Millwall away and have a couple of drinks, you're immediatey tarred with the same brush as those who want to live up to the reputation the club earnt itself in the past and you'll probably be kettled, ushered in and out of grounds and just treated like dirt for wanting to watch your team.

xD Notts County's story was utterly ludicrous. They fell for a complete hoax. They did get promoted that year, but with money they never actually had.

Surprise surprise Sven turned up.

There was a lot of trouble when we played them this season. Pitch invasion after they won the game which I don't see an issue with, but sure enough it soon ended up with both sets of fans throwing coins and seats at each other for a good half an hour plus.

They have a reputation they'll never fully shake because people will always jump on the bandwagon. People from all over will come and be a part of what Millwall are supposedly about.

I don't buy that they're a bad club, but they have a reputation that they will never totally get rid of.

--------------

Anyway, as what mine is - Coventry City. Unsurprisingly my desire to start this thread came about with their relegation to League Two. The compounding of what an awful club to support they have been.

They haven't come in the top six of any league for around fifty years. That's an absolutely absurd statistic. I bet even if they go back up from League Two it'll be by coming 7th and winning the play-offs.

There is no rollercoaster with them. That's why they're worse than Orient for me. Orient will sort their act out and get back on the up before Coventry will. Portsmouth had the highs, then a tumble down the leagues, now they're seemingly back on the up again.

Coventry have been on a downward slope for the entire time I have followed football. Just imagine that. They just slowly but surely get that bit worse, that bit weaker. Absolutely nothing good comes from supporting Coventry. I'd argue that the celebration their FL Trophy win got sums the situation up more than anything.

And all of this while they have to watch their rivals win the league and play in the last eight of the Champions League :D (Sorry I can't resist).
