  1. I'm not convinced he filled in those answers himself, doubt he's as staunch as he makes out.

  2. After only 2 of these its clear this is being plucked from an a sad and sorry era when ethnic clubs tried to emphasize just how non-ethnic they were by highlighting it, in this case non-greek fans.
    I thought those days were over, but in recent seasons its clear this attitude is very much alive and well at south.

    1. Actually, the first two from this series that I retrieved from the archives were both Greeks.

      Unfortunately, most of the links to the original Fanatic of the Week series from 2001 do not work - so it's impossible to tell what the demographics were from a project like this

While I like people commenting on the blog, it would be useful if different posters could at least leave some sort of nickname to make it easier to sort through all the different 'anonymous' posters. If your post doesn't get approved straight away, it's probably because I haven't seen it yet. Lastly, just because I approve a comment for publication does not mean that I endorse its content.
