Sometimes it’s just not enough to turn up and shout abuse at the opposition!
The new season is upon us which to many is a great time of the year as it brings an end to the 2 months long wait since the last whistle blew back in May. So to celebrate this new season some will choose to show their support to their favourite team in many different ways, here are some of them.
1. Change of name
In 2007 a Bulgarian man tried to legally change his name to Manchester United to reflect his love for the club. Unfortunately for him for him, magistrates ruled he could only change his first name. So for now, say hi to Mr. Manchester Levidzhev
2. Huge Tattoo’s
It is quite a common slight to see a small tattoo on the arm of the local skinhead of his teams crest but some take it one step further.
This gentleman decided the small Middlesbrough FC crest wasn’t enough (maybe it was too common to have just on the shoulder). So he decided to get a much larger one right next to it.
3. Inflate themselves
Not content with buying a replica kit some football fans like to wear an inflatable kit so they can say they are the biggest fan there is.
It is a healthier and cheaper method then eating half time pies too
4. Start them young
It’s quite normal for a father to buy their son or daughter a mini replica kit but to go as far as drinking cup and a teddy bear, let them make their own mind up dads!
5. For that romantic moment
For many, football takes over their lives and during the season some people may forget they are married entirely. So just before the divorce papers are signed, save that marriage by having a nice romantic evening in with your teams themed candles.
Also don’t shout “FULL TIME!” once the candle burns out.
6. Small details
When you open your wallet (or purse) and look for money only to find none (as usual) you reach for your credit card. Not your die-hard football supporter, they reach for their football credit card branded with their footballs crest and colours.
7. Even the mans best friend…
Why should a mans best friend be treated any different to the kids. Dogs too can be forced to cheer (howl) the team on at a weekends too
8. In the office
One thing about when you start working in an office is everyone asks what team you support (so they know whether to talk to you or not) but after being asked for the tenth time you tire and the time taken to respond to the questions adds up. Cut down this time with your football teams mouse to show everyone where your support lies. (don’t be surprised if you find this destroyed the next day by a rival fan)
9. Support your team anywhere
At some point there becomes a time when wearing that football shirt just isn’t appropriate, like a wedding, a funeral or an important meeting etc but that doesn’t mean you can’t support your team where no one (possibly) will see.
10. For ever and ever and ever and ever…
Hamburg football fans live and breath their team, and now they can be dead and not breath. There is now a cemetery next to Hamburg football club stadium where fans can be buried with a blue and white gravestone to match the teams kit colours all for the same price of an annual season ticket. Not bad value!
