“Everywhere we go everyone sings ”you”re not famous anymore”. It just shows other teams haven”t forgotten about us, the Mirror quoted But a Leeds spokesman, as saying.
Leeds fan and actor Ralph Ineson said: “It stems from jealousy of the great 1970s side. More recently, the jealousy comes from how devilishly attractive Leeds fans are.”
Sales training firm Sandler Training, which commissioned the poll, said: “People make quick judgments. They look at Leeds and think they are arrogant and big headed.”
The Most Hated are:
2 Manchester United
8 West Ham
