  1. arsenal???????? ha ha ha ha ha!!!!

    boo!!! get off!!! boo!!! boo!!! thanks for the memories arsene!!! boo!!! sack him!!! sell ramsey!!! boo!!!

  2. Interesting infographic but many of the criteria measured are very subjective and dependent on other factors.

    Decibels: Not taking into consideration size of stadium/crowd etc and teh harmonics of the stadia. Liv may have 97 dB to ManU 94 but ManU have 20K more fans inside the ground which makes the level of sound at anfield even more impressive.

    Away games and distance travelled: Closely linked. Newcastle and Southampton clearly travel the furthest because they are more remote from other Prem teams and similarly teams in the NW or London, where many teams are based will travel less but also have teh ability to get to more away games.

    Price of tickets: Also dependent on average wage in area explaining somewhat the cost of Arsenal and Spurs tickets and also highlighting that Liverpools prices are exceedingly high with average wage in mind. ManU and Chelsea showing great value here.

    Lastly, not sure how total worldwide fans was estimated, perhaps the you took figures from the deeply flawed Research by Germany company SPORT+MARKT which was taken from a survey of only 1,000 people from 34 countries.

    Surely audience fugires for matches woudl be a better metric with the Liverpool Manu derby the most watched club football match in teh world with viewing figures of 500 Million.
