Well seasoned Hoppers aren't they the ones on a Groundhop coach on the last day of a hop.

Thought we are all Loonies or we used to be. Sure Leo was once.

Is a die-hard hopper the same as a seasoned one?


I guess die-hards are a step above (or is that below) a seasoned one.

Not sure if they are invited to weddings.


I think it depends on whether or not you have any Fun Lovin Criminal records.

Being a die-hard is surely a phase. It's a time when attending football is approaching the be-all and end-all of life.

Most people grow out of this and become seasoned. They have other active interests, apart from football.

How's this for a hopping spectrum? All just for fun, of course.

Random - attends lots of games (50 games per season / 10 new grounds)
Novice - starts to keep lists. May buy a stopwatch. Takes notebook to games. (100 / 50)
Enthusiast - makes efforts to complete things. Might buy one of these clicky-counter things. (150 / 100)
Die Hard - ticks beginning to take over life. Characterised by divorce and / or relationship problems (150 / 140)
Extreme - Now free of family commitments, seeks out the most obscure and far-flung ticks. (150 / 140)
Obsessive - ticks, crowds and programmes have taken over life. People start to think you are very odd. Personal hygiene problems may emerge. (200 / 190)
Mature - More Laid-back approach to programmes / ticks, relationships start to recover (100 / 50)
Seasoned - Other interests now rival football in importance (70 / 20)
Institutionalised - alternative route for the obsessive who doesn't mature properly (0 / 0)

I think that makes me a somewhere between seasoned and random, with 49 games last season and 11 new grounds. Football has pretty much always played second fiddle to running for me.



Watford FC supporter hence the name also follow Hull FC but rarely get to see either these days.

Have now visited over 800 grounds, progress in recent years has been rather slow and will continue to be as things stand.

Enthusiast, but no stopwatch, notebook or clicky-counter thing.

Ditto.

When once checking in to my lodgings at a Hop a couple of other travels remarked I had rather a large bag for one or two nights, the bag they referring to was the one containing my toiletries. When they saw my overnight bag they were amazed maybe even stunned as I had more cloths in it than they possessed in their whole "wardrobe".

Also random with a bit of novice thrown in. Last season's figures were 40/21 and this year's likely to be a bit higher as I'll be free on more Saturdays.

No notebook or the like at games, just my keys, phone and wallet!

I'm happy to anounce that August 2016 is the first month where I've managed to attend football on every Saturday of the month since April 2009, seven years and four months ago. Now THAT is what you can achieve by getting a new job!! Smile

Back in April 2009 I was still working every Saturday, but was in a job where I was able to sneak off for a couple of hours, usually to watch Abingdons Town or United play.
