Plea to non league fans! Can't Post or Reply Privately

Hello. I'm a fan of Chesham United, and am conducting research into the importance of football fans amongst a modern game driven by money. Would be amazing if I could get this from the perspective of non-league fans (the real fans)
Here is a link to a survey, it is multiple choice and will take 2 minutes of your time - thanks in advance!!!!!

Interesting. Except it says UK at the top and Question 6 is Anglocentric (only giving Premier League to Non League options) - clubs in Wales, Scotland and N. Ireland fall outside these categories.

Thank you very much - As I have relocated to Brighton I haven't been able to get down to the meadow much this season. Have been going to watch Lewes quite a lot they have a fantastic set up. Another solid season for the Hemel chaps though!

Done. But have you considered those of us who watch a wider range of football than just the one team we follow on a regular basis.? My team is my defunct setting but I may well choose an alternative if I feel there is a more attractive match (e.g a F.A. Vase semi-final). The bottom line is I cannot imagine being anywhere else on a Saturday afternoon than at a football ground whether or not it's following the team I support.

Knowing who your club is Bradshaw, I hope that's a "slip of the tongue"! Wink

... the perspective of non-league fans (the real fans)


just a point of order, but why are non-league fans the 'real fans'? and what exactly is a non league fan?

I follow a non league club, I'm not a non league fan, the club I follow just happens to be playing in the non league pyramid. If in 40 years time by some miracle it manages to gain football league status, I'm not going to turn my back on it because it's no longer non league?

take Lincoln fans for example, this year they are the 'real fans', but next year in a league above they will be just ordinary fans again?

just seems a strange thing to be judging fans on?
