What sort of fan are you?

edited October 2022 in General Charlton
Watching the Wrexham documentary series somebody broke fans down into four separate groups. 
It seemed a bit of an over simplification at first, but perhaps there’s something in it?

1. Happy Clappers
2. Moaners
3. Lads. Perhaps not age specific, but passionate and demonstrative.
4. Hooligans. 

The breakdown varies from club to club. Fulham, for example, would have a lot of group 1 but very few group 4.  Charlton may have a mix or 1, 2 and 3, but few 4.  

Personally I have reluctantly concluded that, if I had to choose, I’d say I’m in Group 1, with a dash of 2.

    Formerly high spirited, noisy, optimistic, CARD supporter.
    Latterly eyes opened, despondent, tagging along cos family members need the support.

    I’m probably 1, fast approaching 2 though!

    I’m 3 with a leaning towards 2. Never been a 1, but dabbled with 4 in my youth.

    3, not big enough to be 4.

    I’m rethinking this (ex Millwall, bound to change my mind).
    I’m probably a 3 (not a lad, but passionate) with 1 & 2 tendencies. 
    Why is nothing ever simple?

    Somewhere between 2 and 3

    I've lost count what number we're up to now. Armchair.

    2 for me.
    I do like a moan

    The divide between 1 and 2 is too extreme. A number of fans would be mildly disgruntled or at least questioning of the club, so not really happy clappers, without actually making them into moaners, as it doesn't colour their whole matchday experience.

    3. 

    Would expect most fall into this category. If you’re supporting a lower league club then you need to be pretty well informed and passionate by default.

    Can you be a 3 if you’re not a lad?

    Can you be a 3 if you’re not a lad? 
    Yes. Not age or gender specific. Laddette if you like?

    4. Hooligans. 
    5. Ex Millwall
    6. Charlton Life mainly
    7. Nerds
    8. Armchair
    9. 
    Too old to remember which team you're supposed to be supporting

    I’m not a number ….

    Just getting worn out now - why can’t I simply support a football club where my pub / online moans are about what happens on the pitch, and nothing else

    How did we go from ‘look at Charlton Athletic, that’s how to get in the Premier League and run a club well, engage people, stay in that league’

    To, light years behind a bunch of c**** in Surrey, and a club with the most appalling group of ‘core’, well I dunno, ‘supporters’, who, given the chance, will start a fight if a few bin bags came rolling down the street ahead of them, and give them a kicking 

    I just do not know what we did to deserve this
