At the beginning, I choose foot fans as my topic because I am interested of football, and I believe foot is one of the symbol of British which is the birthplace of modern football.
I used to go to local stadium to watch foot games, but I always focus on football game, never pay attention on the football fans.
I think it’s a good chance to research football fans as my community topic, do they have some organization?
I notice there are some songs of the local football team- Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club, but some fans know each single song, some of them just know one or two songs. However, when the match is carrying on, I found people in the north are singing all the time, but people in other area didn’t do it like that. Some times, people in the other area sing the song with people in north area, but they are very quiet in other times expect saying “Well done” or “Come on”.
I’m very interesting about fans attitude of the songs, why people in north stand could sing all the time?
I find other feature of people in north stand, some of them are standing when they watch the game, and there is banner saying “Stand or fall”.
I’m not sure what is the meaning of that banner, I figure out this.
Turning to the “standing”, I remember when I go the Old Trafford to watch the football match, every one are standing when they watch the match. At the beginning I thought they are welcoming the players or something, but when the match begin, no one sit down. Manchester United is one of the best football club in the world, I comprehend their fans are little different with others, some of the local fans are standing when they watch the match, also make them so special.
I believe people in the north stand have an organization, I will try to join them next game.
By the way, I plan to join them on Saturday, but the match was cancelled, the next game is in 15th March. I hate the match which is starting in the night, the light is a huge challenge for me, it’s very hard to take good photos.
