Famous Supporters

Premiership West Ham United
by BrentwoodIron (U6697949) 18 April 2007
comment on the article

An open forum to all supporters of any club.
Which famous supporters do you have in your club?
List the 'star' and the club (just a bit of harmless fun).

West Ham United have 'The Daddy' (Ray Winstone) and Russell Brand (the guy who thinks he is funny, with the dodgy barnet).
Sheffield United have Sean Bean (pretty cool having Major Sharpe in your ranks).
Spurs have Chaz and Dave and Warren Mitchell (even though he wears a West Ham scarf in the sit-com).
Continue please:-.......

Keira Knightkley eh? Pretty girl but, needs to eat more.
I suggest that we all have a whip-round for her, so that she can afford some pie'n'mash.

That is a really great list. I can't believe that you owned up to Ted Rodgers though (3,2,1). laugh
Actually, in the dark old days at the Bridge, that is more than your average crowd ever was.

Someone has way too much time on their hands. (Or a link to Wikipedia.)


I'm pretty sure Graham Poll is a Tottenham fan.

I already had it copies from an earlier post.

John Motson admits it now, and featured in the last but one Chelsea magazine.

That list says it all about Chelski... at least you'd be likely to see Brand/Winstone at UP, unlike this list of so-called fans.

Ps, no way will
Chelski take 3 points tonight, I bet you anything.
