FAN BASE TODAY

Post by warksclaret » Sat Sep 28, 2019 11:45 pm

Spoke today with numerous fans across whole country. Never fails to amaze me how many fans we have across the whole country. But walking out I spoke to two fans who travelled from Oslo. How supportive is that

Are you sure it wasn’t Walsall. The accent is a tricky one....

If you want to meet a Clarets fan go to a motorway service station - never fails, we come from all over - but have to say I’ve not met any from Oslo!

Oi we're from Walsall. But I'm a fully fledged northerner. My missus on the other hand is born and bred from Walsall and I've no idea what she's on about most of the time. :)

Why don’t they support a team from where they come from? Hate these glory-hunting “supporters”.

Think I bumped into you and your wife yesterday after not getting in at the Yew Tree. Still think my Walsall accent was spot on :D

Spoke to friends at work who are non-football fans and said you can go anywhere in the world and bump into a Burnley fan, point proven when abroad for work last season for Newcastle away and in the pub walked a group of 10 people who supported Burnley and met a guy at the bar from Brunshaw.

Haha yeah you did. To be honest it was more like a west brom one :D I was getting pelters on the train back to Walsall. Their fans were proper annoyed.

We definitely had one Norwegian at the game yesterday who posts on this board. He rarely misses a game now, home or away.

Tony I spoke to two Norwegians on the way out-could have been one of the ones you mention. What a great compliment to our club if they do this weekly

There were a couple of hundred Clarets happily chatting with locals in Warsaw before the match yesterday.

There was a group of kids behind us in the upper tier that were wearing “Sydney Soccer” gear - although admittedly not many of them sounded Aussie

Think I'd have more fun with the Traegar than the Jeep.
