I know fans of clubs on here know why I still go as only passionate supporters understand our devotion and loyalty.In fact I wanted to ignore his question as he was being sarcastic but just replied that somebody has to don’t they ? He looked bemused but as he’s an Arsenal fan who’s never saw them play only on the telly he wouldn’t know what a real football fan is anyway !
