WHAM fans really are the worst when it comes to a false sense of entitlement. At least the Scousers have actually won a significant number of trophies.

WHAM have three FA Cups and one Cup Winners Cup, all won between 1964 and 1980. That's it. The honours section on their website has more references to the second tier than anything else, for Pete's sake.

They are an average yoyo club who have had one good 15 year spell of honours in their history, and feck all else. That's their football heritage.
Exactly. Liverpool are annoying because they act like it's still their heyday when they've actually been crap/average really for decades, but West Ham have the same sense of entitlement but don't even have any sort of history to back it up whatsoever. Both sets of fans are disillusion but at least Liverpool have at least some basis for it, no matter how thin.

My brother in law (not a football fan) is taking his wife's cousin (over from Germany) to a premier league match when they visit in April. Originally they were going to come to the Spurs/Watford game with me, but seeing as they moved that to a Monday, they've now said they'll go to see West Ham v Citeh instead.

I've told him that if his cousin-in-law (is that a thing?) is used to Bundesliga, then they'll be less than impressed sitting in the draughty expanses of Stratford, trying to avoid the local neanderthals fighting each other when the tiny blue players wallop the tiny claret players 6-0. Told him to go to Palace v Leicester instead. Better atmosphere, better game and easier to get to.

Unless of Course it's a historical Retro Thing... come see Football in England like it was in the 80's. I mean London is a great place for visiting historical past-times.

Rampant infighting aside, you do get most of the 80s experience going to Palace as well.
