All English Clubs ranked from ‘Elite’ to ‘S**t’ based on away support according to a controversial ranking system devised by a fan.
To rank anything can create quite a stir. Now imagine trying to rank football clubs. Arguments over which football team is better than the other can raise hell. Many people would like to believe that the club they support is a great club regardless of their current standing.
A twitter user by the name of Tom is now in the eye of a storm after devising a controversial ranking system that divides English Clubs into 5 levels depending on the away support. Naturally, the rankings have attracted a lot of response.
The ranking has 5 tiers divided into Elite, Good, Average, Poor and S**t. Only two clubs find themselves in the Elite Tier: Manchester United and surprisingly Leeds United. Premier League leaders Liverpool and Manchester City sit a tier below at Good While Arsenal hover at Average.
Most surprisingly though, Chelsea sit all the way at the bottom in the S**t tier!

The list has naturally elicited at a ton of response from the twitterverse.
Twitter user Damian Pearce said:
“The fact that you actually have Newcastle as average shows how much yous hate us and its embarassing [sic]!!! Newcastle, Sunderland, Leeds and Liverpool easily on numbers and noise are the best fans going Id even chuck Sheff Wed in there too.”
While Gunners fan Samuel tweeted:
“Arsenal literally has the best away fans lmao.”
Aston Villa fan Dean angrily argued:
“We literally sell out every away game even when we were in the championship but ok. UTV.”
Someone else wrote: “I’d have Newcastle way above average, probably elite. When we were in the Prem they always brought the biggest following to Elland Road and were a sound bunch of fans as well.”
Do you agree with the list?
