What do Charlton fans do 104 times a day?
Think about their club, according to a new survey. Only Sheffield United supporters think about their club more often (110 times). In contrast Everton fans think about their club only 43 times a day and Watford fans 51 times.
Either Charlton fans have a lot of time on their hands or their club causes them a lot of anxiety.
I started supporting Charlton in 1953 when my father took me to a game (my mother came sometimes as well). My father was born in North Woolwich in 1908 and
had been a Charlton supporter since the 1920s when an older cousin took him. He raised the admission fee by looking after horses while deliveries were made. I now live in Leamington in Warwickshire, but remain a season ticket holder, as was my late wife. Visitors to my CAP blog may be confused by this but, as well as being a Charlton supporter, I am expert on the CAP and the political economy of the food chain. I am also a frequent commentator for UK and international print and broadcast media and wire services on British politics, hence my new blog on the subject.
