“Oh we hate (insert club here), and we hate (insert club here)… we are the (insert club here) haters”
There’s an awful lot of naked hatred in football, but as long as it doesn’t spill over into violence it’s not such a bad thing. Great rivalries are fueled by hatred, many brilliant chants are rooted in hatred etc. etc.
We all have hate figures in the game, but what about a hate club? Local rivals are on obvious place to start, but as great as my support of Tottenham is, I’ve never been able to truly hate the Woolwich Wanderers. No, the team I hate above all others is… Chelsea. I just can’t abide those west London Blues, with their new money, and epitomised by the ghastly John Terry. But that’s just me. I’m sure plenty of Chelsea fans hate Spurs with a demonic intensity – and the world still turns.
So, get it off your chest: which football team do you hate the most, and why?
