The typical football culture in UK (part 2)

The British expressed it calmly and no less excited. Football is their pleasure, but they are not born just to live for football. So no matter how much he loves, how passionate he is, the British always behave properly, calmly and somewhat politely. They always thought that there was something in their bloodline of nobility. Except for immigrants from Africa, Spain or Pakistan, English football culture can be summed up in two words: the norm.

Surely many people wonder if the atmosphere of English football is boring as rumored. From the perspective of a person who has witnessed and experienced firsthand, I completely deny that.

Even though English fans are desperate to immerse themselves in the football atmosphere in Germany, I find that the Bundesliga fans can learn a lot from the cheerleading style of the football fans. Loyalty, consistency of the English fans may not be as good as the German fans, but the songs are much more creative. They often sing very humorous songs aimed at mocking players or coaches the opponent. This is an advocacy specialty that I rarely see in Germany.

The cheerleaders at the English stadiums are also very enthusiastic, similar to the way the fans cheer before the match. But it was a shame because it all became quieter when the ball started rolling on the field. Instead of shouting and cheering, they switched to a lively discussion about the match, with a wealth of soccer knowledge that made me gasp in surprise.

The last thing I want to say about English football, is not a compliment but a complaint. Football tickets too expensive. I have to pay $ 60 for a seat at Selhurst Park and the same is nearly $ 110 at Boleyn Ground (West Ham United). A total of $ 170, which is exactly half of Dortmund’s whole season ticket price. Although it is difficult to be true, I hope the English clubs will reduce the ticket price, to give many other fans the opportunity to come to the field to see their favorite team.
