A couple of days ago I was reading an article made by a football-journalist that I highly respect, and he said something that interested me. He said it matters not whether you support a club that doesn't play where you're from, and used Thailand as an example of that. He said if you're in Thailand and watch European football, why wouldn't you support one of the bigger teams in Europe? I guarantee if a kid from a different country supported a team like Barcelona, Munich, Man United, Real Madrid, etc., then they would get ridiculed as a "glory supporter". Now, I definitely believe glory supporters exist. When I rarely browse Manchester Utd forums I see a fair share of them. However, I believe 90% of the time that when you label someone a glory supporter, you are 100% wrong. If you're from abroad and only get to see the high-profile games, or they are the games you enjoy watching the most, why not support a top team? If you're invested enough to know just as much about that team as a local hardcore fan that lives in Barcelona for example would, then are you not on the same level as him? Who would be the real fan: A 14 year old boy from America supporting Manchester Utd who knows every single first team player, reserve team player, the club history, and everything else a typical loyal local supporter would know; or a kid from Manchester who only watches his side on MOTD and barely knows the first team players, but is first to ridicule Sir Alex Ferguson after one poor game, who only supports Man Utd because of the recent success? Which is the true supporter? Would it still be okay to call the first kid a glory supporter, or say he shouldn't be supporting Manchester United at all, and be fine to accept the local lad supporting his local side? In my honest opinion, it's absolutely fine to support whomever you want. I even accept scousers supporting Manchester United, or kids living in Bayern Munich supporting Borussia Dortmund. You support who you enjoy watching. If you only support them because they win, and when they start to lose they lose your support, then you are indeed a glory supporter. I understand all of you - myself included - having issues with those types of fans. I was thinking about this recently as I have slowly realised my attachment to teams like Dortmund and Bilbao. I watch both those leagues, and like a typical BPL weekend, those would be the games I go to first if there are multiple matches happening at one point. (Manchester United being the team I go to with the BPL). The aforementioned journalist also said supporting more than one club is fine, and also sees no issue with that. Once again, I completely agree. Most people would have their #1 team, but I think you can definitely enjoy teams enough to support them in their matches. I know for sure I want teams like Swansea, Bilbao, Dortmund, and Spurs to win every single game they play - as long as it isn't against Manchester United - because I am thoroughly entertained during their matches and am invested enough in their philosophy of play to want them to succeed. This should be a good thread. If you intend to be LQ, then gtfo.
