"Spends £695 a year on health and grooming products

I think not at the time - and most of them couldn't read either

 

and I guess there was a distinct lack of Class A & B -

 

other than Lord Westwood and that creep McKeag of course

That's a strange one isn't it? I think we're all aware of the gentrification of football, but not to that extent.

a male who drives a Ford or a Peugeot

Whilst I'm male, I don't even own a car.

 

Holidays in the U.S.

No

 

Has broadband internet access

Yes

 

Favourite film is Lord of the Rings; The Return of the King

No

 

Listens to Hopes and Fears by Keane

Jesus Christ, NO!

 

Spends £695 a year on health and grooming products

I reckon I spend a lot less than that, although I always make sure I have a few in stock

 

Spends £685 a year on clothes

Dunno, possibly - That's pobably a bit high. I don't have much label/brand stuff. Almost all my clothes are Burtons/Top Man/Next etc.

 

Spends £116 a year on cd's and dvd's

I spend way more than that

 

Spends £79 a year on books

I spent £80 on books last week alone

 

Exactly half are in social groups A and B ( upper and middle class professionals)

Lower middle & skilled working class fans each make up 21%

The rest are manual workers or OAP's

Dunno, what I am. I suppose Lower Middle.

 

Goes to 11.2 games a season

No, I go to every Home game and at least 1 or 2 aways each season

 

Arrives 33 mins before kick off and departs 11 mins after final whistle.

Yeah, I arrive about half an hour or so before KO. I go as soon as the match ends, although by the time I'm out the ground, it's maybe 5 mins after the whistle - tops, and that's because it's a nightmare getting out in the NE Corner.

a male who drives a Ford or a Peugeot - :icon_lol:

Holidays in the US - well, I did go twice last year, but that was in extenuating circumstances. I wish I could bloody AFFORD to holiday in the US.

Favourite film is Lord of the Rings; The Return of the King - never seen it

Listens to Hopes and Fears by Keane - never heard it

Spends £695 a year on health and grooming products - £700!!?? That's just a tad ridiculous.

Spends £685 a year on clothes - :steamtrain: good god no.

Spends £116 a year on cd's and dvd's - maybe about half that. jeezus, I really just don't buy things do I?!

Spends £79 a year on books - including uni books, WAY more. not including uni books, WAY less.

Goes to 11.2 games a season - I don't watch just .2 of a game. Unlike the guy that sits next to me...!

Social groups? I'm a student, I'm afraid.

Arrives 33 mins before kick off and departs 11 mins after final whistle. - depends. Sometimes though. Somtimes.

 

I will, however, give them:

Has broadband access

 

 

 

Tralalala. I can't believe I just wasted a few mins of my life doing that.... :P

Who are these idiots that leave the ground 11 minutes after the whistle?? And that's on average. Seen as most people leave either before, or just after the whistle there must be someone stopping there for a while to get this average to 11 minutes. Unless they're including the ground staff.

Anyone who's eaten one of those extortionatly priced meat pies is likely to spend a good half hour on the khazie tbh - that ought to push up the 'pissing off time'....

No I’m female, but I do have Peugeot.

 

Holidays in the U.S.

Only once, only because I won the trip.

 

Has broadband internet access

Yes I have broadband.

 

Favourite film is Lord of the Rings; The Return of the King

No its not, my favourite film is Dancing Thru The Dark.

 

Listens to Hopes and Fears by Keane

Nope.

 

Spends £695 a year on health and grooming products

Not sure, might be around that amount I suppose, if you exclude trips to hairdressers etc.

 

Spends £685 a year on clothes

Again, I’m not sure, Id say no though.

 

Spends £116 a year on cd's and dvd's

Aye that might be about right, I don’t buy that many.

 

Spends £79 a year on books

I think it would be a bit more then that.

 

Exactly half are in social groups A and B (upper and middle class professionals)

Lower middle & skilled working class fans each make up 21%

The rest are manual workers or OAP's

I’m more working class, pretending to be a professional.

 

Goes to 11.2 games a season

No, I go to all home games, hangovers permitting that is.

 

Arrives 33 mins before kick off and departs 11 mins after final whistle.

No, I arrive between 20 mins and 10 seconds before kick off, and I leave when the final whistle goes, unless I’m going out that night then sometimes I will leave sooner.

As mentioned earlier, the NE corner is a mare to get out of. Although 11 minutes is stretching it a bit.

I'm in Level 7 right in the middle of a row, and I reckon I'm still out before 11 minutes passes. It's got to be one of the stupidest stats ever as well btw!

I time my last pint and piss so that I'm going up the stairs just as they're coming out, give or take 30 seconds. I reckon it takes about 5 minutes to get out the NE corner depending on where you're sitting and how quick you are at dashing straight off.

 

The rest of that list is a load of shite as well. :P

but the real trick is to fiddle the numbers so they all come out the same - that way you can't be tripped up by some smart assed senior manager
