Leeds And Man U Are Hated More Than Us

Football fans across the country are united over one thing - they all hate Leeds.

The League One side topped a poll of every English pro team as the new season kicks off today.

Many fans remember the Dirty Leeds tag in the 1970s because of their tough tackling and "win nasty" ethos.

There was rejoicing last season when they lost to Doncaster Rovers and failed to make the Championship.

But a Leeds spokesman said: "Everywhere we go everyone sings 'you're not famous anymore'. It just shows other teams haven't forgotten about us."

Leeds fan and actor Ralph Ineson, who plays Finchy in The Office, said: "It stems from jealousy of the great 1970s side. More recently, the jealousy comes from how devilishly attractive Leeds fans are."

Sales training firm Sandler Training, which commissioned the poll, said: "People make quick judgments. They look at Leeds and think they are arrogant and big headed."

Morecambe FC, which was promoted to the league for the first time last year, was voted most popular.

Most Hated: 1 Leeds; 2 Manchester United; 3 Chelsea; 4 Wolves; 5 Millwall; 6 Burnley; 7 Bolton; 8 West Ham; 9 Stoke; 10 Sc**thorpe. MOST LIKED: 1 Morecambe; 2 Arsenal; 3 Liverpool; 4 Hartlepool; 5 Brighton; 6 Crewe Alexandra; 7 Walsall; 8 Tottenham Hotspur; 9 Bournemouth; 10 Bury.

This is far more accurate sounding than all the nonsense that rates us the most hated in the nation. The problem is asking other fans is such a subjective basis. Of course they are gonna respond "I hate Chelsea the most" after a few years of recent success. But the mere fact that people still chant "We hate Leeds, and Leeds and Leeds..." when they are still two divisions down says it all.

I can understand Arsenal as a "most liked" because they always seem to be the golden child of world football, but Liverpool are hated by far more then they are liked by, I guarantee it. And theyre making new fans every day: Villa fans, Spuds, etc, with all of Benitez's bumbling on the market. When you add that to us, Everton, the Mancs, and anyone else who suffered for the Heysel ban and the fact that they have tarnished the image of English football as much as anyone, its hard to see why they are the third most loved.

Because the majority of new fans are kids who have never heard of Heysel and just like teams winning. Which is lame!

I have read a few things about American guys like myself discovering the premier league and trying to pick a club to support, Liverpool and spurs always seems to be in contention and I just do not see why anyone would want to support them whats so likable about them. This one ESPN guy wrote an article about it and took a bunch of advice from e-mailers. Clearly a bunch of deluded scousers swayed his opinion by proclaiming gerrard's greatness. He eventually picked spurs, my countrymen disappoint me sometimes.

The West Brom of the NFL. :( Good for you Completefisher

It gives me a nice balance in life.

Every week I expect Chelsea to win, and I also expect the Bengals to be thrashed! However, this is the year they're going to win the Superbowl!

I have always gone for the underdogs which Chelsea was when Gullit came to Bridge. I have to say it is really interesting to follow Chelsea now when you can expect great players to play for the blue shirt every year. It was fun being the underdog but it is fun now as well.

Number one in my hate list is Liver*ool by a mile.

I would suggest that they just asked media personell to answer this poll, however, there is no way Man U would be that high up on the diskilked list. To be honest, this doesn't bother me, about the Chelsea aspect. But the complete blindness of the media, obviously is filtering into the general public if they rate Liverpool so hhighly.

I guess all their troubles in Europe: showing up for game with counterfeit tickets, or tickets from previous European outings, storming gates, and getting into trouble with the local authorities constantly.....None of that was really their fault, and the media and authorities are just showing them in a poor light. Because, as we all know, they are the best supporters in the world, and total Salt of the earth.

I just like to call them c**ts
