6. Aston Villa
Aston Villa is one football club whose fans are known for loyalty and mannerism. They are the most successful club in the Midlands, European champions, and have spent the best part of 90% of their Football League life in the top flight. Aston Villa were a Premier League club from its inception in 1992 till 2016. They came back to the Premier League in 2019. Villa still has a very strong fan base and no matter what the future holds for them there will be plenty of Villains behind them.
5. Nottingham Forest
Notting Forest are finally back in the Premier League, and deservingly so. The match day atmosphere at the stadium is one of the best in England. They are one of a select few English clubs that have won the European Cup. The success that they have enjoyed over the years has pretty much all been achieved at The City Ground.
4. West Ham
The biggest club to never win a top-flight title, and it’s not even close. But that never stopped the Hammers’ fans from loving and supporting the club. They have always had tremendous support from the stands, that’s something they can be proud of. Fans of West Ham are as passionate as they come, and although their games do not provide the same quality of football as some other games in the Premier League, the West Ham fans make up for it with unfaltering enthusiasm, cheering their team on through thick and thin.
Whether you love the reds or not, you can’t deny that the club has terrific support. The Anfield club is built on tradition, success, and terrible tragedy. Liverpool has passed through many hard stones, whether it’s the winning of major trophies or the fight for justice after the Hillsborough disaster. This is a club that deserves respect, no matter your allegiance.
“You’ll Never Walk Alone” is one of football’s most famous anthems. It does not matter whether it’s sung in Merseyside halfway through the campaign or belted out in Dublin during the preseason, the club’s support and passion is something to marvel at. They are without any doubt, one of the most passionate EPL fan bases.
2. Leeds United
The lilywhites of West Yorkshire are simply one of the most famous clubs in the country. They’ve experienced great success in the past and have a great fanbase.
Leeds is the largest English city with only one professional club and even during tough times their fans still come close to filling the 37,000 seat capacity at Elland Road while screaming, “We are Leeds!” Perhaps it’s the fiery northern mentality that is so deeply ingrained into the psyche of every Leeds fan that makes them collectively feel they’re capable of creating an atmosphere that changes score lines. An Elland Road in full voice not only spurs Leeds United on, but it also terrifies the opposition.
1. Newcastle United
Newcastle’s support is regarded as one of the most spirited and cheerful inside England. It often piles up against the more successful clubs and creates a cauldron of the atmosphere on the match day.
Newcastle doesn’t have a particularly global fanbase like Arsenal or Manchester United, but the local support they have is passionate and intense. Game after game, season after season, their St. James’ Park stadium is full and noisy and full-blooded, which is far more than can be said for neighbors Sunderland and Middlesbrough.
The Geordies keep singing—even after many years without winning a major trophy.
