Newcastle United were founded in 1892 by the merger of Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End. The club has been a member of the Premier League for all but three years of the competition’s history, spending 88 seasons in the top flight as of July 2020, and have never dropped below English football’s second tier since joining the Football League in 1893. They are one of the biggest underachievers in the recent era. They are mostly hated by fans of Sunderland, and also have small rivalries with Middlesbrough, Liverpool, and Manchester United.

14) Aston Villa

There is no denying the fact that Aston Villa is a big club. Villa have a fierce local rivalry with Birmingham City and the Second City derby between the teams has been played since 1879. Historically though, West Bromwich Albion have arguably been Villa’s greatest rivals, a view highlighted in a fan survey, conducted in 2003. The two teams contested three FA Cup finals in the late 19th century. Villa also enjoys less heated local rivalries with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Coventry City.

13) Stoke City

The Stoke-on-Trent club is hated mainly because of their playing style which is very rough. Rival fans say that they don’t know the difference between Rugby and Football. Stoke City is considered every British fan’s second or third least favorite team and Stoke fans don’t really mind it and some even embrace it. Stoke City fans booed Ramsey for a long time because he did not accept Shawcross’s apology after Ryan Shawcross almost ended the Welshman’s career by breaking his leg. All these things make StokeCity one of the most hated football clubs in the United Kingdom.

12) Manchester City

One of the few teams that are hated mostly because of the ridiculous amount of money they spend each year. The recent success of the Sky Blues has made the fans around England hate them even more now. They are ridiculed for not being able to fill up their own stadium. Rivals also claim that they have no history and only became relevant due to their money. Man City’s rivals Man United have more hate for them than any other club in Premier League.

11) Arsenal

The main reason for the Arsenal hate all around the United Kingdom is that they brag about the ‘invincibles’ season when it is almost 17 years now. But in recent history, Gunners have consistently underperformed and do not aim to challenge for the title.

British fans also believe that the Gooners were lucky in that season and did not deserve the praise and hype they got. Tottenham fans loathe everything to do with Arsenal and vice-versa. West Ham fans also hate the red and white. Manchester United are not big fans either nor are Chelsea or Liverpool. Stoke and Manchester City also dislike the club.
