Sunderland fans officially fatter than Newcastle ones

Hmm, did they talk to this guy?

Newcastle fan

The Department of Health have been busily putting together frightening statistics garnered from a survey, which pitted various footie fans against each other to see who drank, smoked and ate the most.

According to the results, Fulham fans drink the most alcohol, Sunderland fans are the most unhealthy (which presumably means “fat”), whilst – rather surprisingly – only 19 per cent of Wigan supporters like to unwind with a half time smokey joe.

After the jump, you’ll find a full list of teams, accompanied by the percentage of supporters who are deemed to be at an “unhealthy weight”…

  • Sunderland: 51.3%
  • Everton: 51.16%
  • Wigan Athletic: 48.21%
  • Manchester City: 47.25%
  • Fulham: 47.17%
  • Blackburn Rovers: 45.0%
  • West Ham United: 44.99%
  • Bolton Wanderers: 44.9%
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers: 44.89%
  • Tottenham Hotspur: 44.87%
  • West Bromwich Albion: 44.63%
  • Aston Villa: 43.23%
  • Stoke City: 42.19%
  • Birmingham City: 41.49%
  • Liverpool: 40.5%
  • Newcastle United: 40.32%
  • Chelsea : 38.48%
  • Manchester United: 36.39%
  • Arsenal: 36.3%
  • Blackpool: 30.33%

    seems like the bottom dwellers have the fattest fans, probably stress which leads to overeating while the contenders have skinny fans

    Does this mean that Oprah Winfrey and fluffy Ronaldo are Sunderland fans?

    Is this serious? Forget about this so-called survey. What does the evidence of your own eyes tell you? The pic at the top of the page says it all.
    Another pathetic media attack on Sunderland and its fans, timed to coincide with the FIFA visit.
    If Sunderland hadn’t come top this piece of pseudo-scientific bollocks would never have seen the light of day!
    Get real!!!!!!!!

    Of course.
    Have you seen the mags. Was this a survey of 25 fans from each club, taking 25 from the posh seats of Newcastle.?
    Statistics can be misleading, but thankfully we can see reality with our eyes
