Yahoo Eurosport team message boards’ threads tallies:
Man U 27429 Liverpool 17997 Newcastle 2370 Leeds 1244 Man City 504 M’brough 434 Hull 180
The rest don’t even get into three figures – excepting Milan which has 107!
Okay, few in the UK use Yahoo anymore but, for an overseas viewer, the rankings above show Leeds to be the fourth best supported ‘soccer’ club. With more than twice the support of Man City, GHF may have bought a gem.
