    So today i went to wolves v afghan in Sydney repping my wolves top.
    It never ceases to amaze me how many wolves fans came up to me, fills me with pride that i can be half way across the would and there are so many of us.
    Infact the first person i saw in a football top was a wolves fan!
    Amazing!

    Always amazes me when I am on holiday in this country or abroad that I nearly always see someone in a Wolves top!

    This is one of the reasons that I dislike the Villa even more than the Albion.

    Villa fans always bang on about being the biggest club in the Midlands etc..

    Go ANYWHERE in the world, you will always see a Wolves shirt/flag/meet a fan.

    Go anywhere outside of Birmingham and you never see a Villa shirt.

    Likewise, I've been on holiday all around Great Britain -- Cornwall, Wales, Scotland wearing my Wolves colours & people will greet me with chants of "ooh Bully Bully" & suchlike. Might not be THE greatest club in the world (or even Britain) but we're certainly well recognised

    WOLVES only WOLVES !
     
  11. Was sitting outside a bar in Ibiza Town in my Wolves shirt a few years ago and a bloke shouted (also wearing a Wolves shirt). We were waiting for the procession and he shouted "alright mate. Where are all the gays then?"

    You can take the man out of Wolverhampton... :D

    Lets be honest, there are fans of everyone everywhere these days. People move around.

    I think we do have a lot of out of towners, but that is partly because a lot of people think they should move out of the area to have a better quality of life, & partly because we were a big club many years ago.

    Depends how you measure 'biggest'.

    They get bigger attendances, have a similar history regarding success but theres is more recent, they are (just) still in the top flight and have been for some time now. So you can see there point.

    As for not seeing any Villa fans out of Birmingham I disagree, Villa's fan base is quite widespread throughout the whole Midlands (annoyingly) and surrounding counties. In fact I'd say Birminghams more Blues, Villa tend to be the out of towners.

    They get plenty from places like bordering counties like Shropshire, Worcestershire etc or even Wolverhampton and the Black Country. As far as I'm concerned they're just as bad as people from round here supporting Man Utd but they try and claim some sort of moral high ground because its a Midlands team...yes but its not your local team is it!

    Personally I'd be more proud to have the whole of Wolverhampton in Molineux each game but sadly a lot of our own community have been priced out.

    I'm confused.

    I'm sure i've read elsewhere on this board that fans that don't live local to their teams were glory hunting $$$$$$$s??

    Haha exactly some are quick enough to attack United etc but then love our widespread 'fan' base.

    Personally I'd prefer a support that represented the local area.

    It's just because you notice Wolves fans/tops more, you're not exactly going to get a Leeds/Forest/Newcastle fan come up & randomly talk you are you if you're in a Wolves top.

    We do have plenty of fans dotted around saying that.

    Our colours are also very distinctive, whereas lot of other clubs have similarish colours to others.

    Didn't you say you lived closer to Walsall than Wolverhampton, why don't you support them?

    I can see Pelsall Villa from my window and the whole of the village seems to be bloody villa fans (accept from Pelsallwolf of course)

    I want both a good hard core of local fans with a healthy amount of fans that travel from far and wide. With about 10,000 spare seats it's not as if local fans are being pushed out, capacity's not the problem, it's just too expensive.

    Newer fans aren't made to feel particularly welcome by a certain group. I can testify to that.

    Having incentives provided to the locals in their language might help encourage them to Join us

    Had a conversation with a Sandwell supporting friend tonight in the pub and touched on this earlier.

    He seemed to suggest the same thing was true of Sandwell, meeting a fellow supporter no matter where you are, all though I had to remind him that when on holiday a few years back in Ibiza there were more Wolves fans in the pub watching West Brom v Stoke than fans of either side!

    Wearing your Manure shirt to games probably wasn't the wisest move! ;)

    Think you'll find I live around the same distance from both, I support Wolves because I was born and grew up in and around Wolverhampton to a family with generations of Wolves supporters.
