People who claim to have a huge interest in a Football team they very rarely watch and when they do watch it is on the television, mainly Match of the day. Most armchair fans support Man UTD.
Greg Clayton is a Man UTD 'fan' who averages 5 games a season watched on match of the day but seems to think he knows whats going on. This is an armchair fan.
Some one who claims to be a mad football fanatic and follows a team but never goes to watch them play they watch them from the comfort of their armchair, they mostly follow teams like Manchester United Chelsea Arsenal or Liverpool
Armchair fan:Yeahhhhhhh Liverpool won 5-2 against Fulham yeah go the reds
Fulham fan:"Did you go to the game"?
Armchair fan:"Na I just watched it from home like I always do"
Fulham fan:"Ha you armchair fan I was at the game and even though we lost 5-2 our fans still sung with their heads held high & there hardly was a Liverpool supporter in sight,Typical armchair fans"
