Greatness never seems to be good enough to get the fans excited at Stamford Bridge. What does it take to make Chelsea fans for passionate?
A new study revealed that fans of the top three teams on the 2014-15 Premier League table are among the least passionate in football.
According to the Daily Mail, a study conducted by Shine Communications analyzed which teams had the highest and lowest proportion of vocal supporters on Twitter and which teams had highest percentage of positive sentiment on Twitter – and the results were rather astonishing.
The study found that Chelsea was at the very bottom of the list (tied with Stoke City) with only a 0.12 “Twitter noise per fan” measurement. While Arsenal and Manchester City ranked 17th and 18th respectively with 0.15 and 0.13 measurements.
As far as happiness is concerned though, Chelsea ranked 3rd with 95% happy fans on Twitter – behind Swansea City and Burnley who ranked 1st and 2nd. Arsenal and Man United, however, were near the bottom of the list with only 84% and 83% respectively.
What’s probably most shocking is how happy and passionate fans of Burnley were considering that the club was regularly getting beaten – 19 times as a matter of fact – and were among the worst scoring clubs in the league with just 28 goals.
