The Football League according to Twitter


It’s that time of year again and our plans for Saturdays are dictated by the football league calendar. Hubby has a season ticket for his beloved Walsall Football Club and much to my disappointment, Little Mr now also has a season ticket there too! Yes, he’s far too young and won’t actually attend any matches yet but the Saddlers have a great initiative whereby a child gets to go to the footy with a paying adult for free. I think it’s a great idea, our local clubs need local fans and getting them involved with the club at an early age is the way to go.

I’m a West Bromwich Albion fan and held a season ticket at the Hawthorns for over 10 years sitting with my Dad and my Grandad in the Brummie Road end. It was great fun. The footy sometimes wasn’t as great but we were loyal fans and often sat in the freezing cold watching and cheering on our team. I would love to take Little Mr up the Albion to watch a game but it won’t be for a few years yet and if my hubby has anything to do with it, Little Mr will be a fully fledged Saddler by then.

So when Saturday comes, we’ll be on our way to Norfolk and I’ll be keeping an eye on the footy scores via Twitter. I love how you can send a tweet asking for a score and get at least 5 back in return with an up to date report. I love this infographic, apparently West Bromwich Albion have over 80,000 followers on Twitter. I’d love to see them trying to get in at the Hawthorns.

Is your team featured? Do you follow footy on Twitter too?
