Evert football fan loves a bit of banter on the terraces and here we will bring you the latest football banter from around the top leagues including pictures, videos, and reactions on Social Media.
Each weekend thousands of football fans descend on their clubs ground to watch their team play, and with that always comes some memorable banter from the stands – whether it be a funny moment on the pitch, a chant from the terraces or scenes outside the stadium, football banter is a huge part of watching the beautiful game.
Latest Football Banter
Above you will find the latest football banter that we found from this weekend’s fixtures. There will be articles explaining what went on around the country and media showing exactly what the laughs were all about. Some of the most famous banter involves the fans – who could forget the scenes in the Leeds away end at the end of the 2018/19 season when a late winner caused a mass pile-on, or the banter between Manchester City and Liverpool fans as the title race went down to the wire?
This football banter forum also needs your help if you had any funny moments on an away day this weekend, send it into us on Twitter @thatsagoal and you could be featured on our site.
Funny football banter is always great to see and some of our favourite moments will be shown below, but when things go too far and there is hooliganism involved, there is no place for that in the beautiful game. Going to the match should all be light-hearted fun and unfortunately, some football casuals have to take things too far.
Best Twitter Football Banter
Twitter and Instagram are always fantastic forums to find the latest footy banter and some of the things you see supporters posting each week is truly amazing.
The banter era has really taken off with the use of Social Media because fans can instantly post things onto the platform and the best stuff regularly goes viral. We posted this video of an Arsenal fan getting pinged with a bottle before the North London Derby last season and it quickly went viral.
Premier League Banter
The rivalries between neighbours in the Premier League means there will always be some good banter and Everton had some fun with Liverpool fans last season. On failing to win the Premeir League title, the fans met at Liverpool Lime Street train station as the Blue side of Merseyside arrived back from an away match against Tottenham, and Liverpool fans were going home (probably to Noway).
The Everton fans wasted no time in giving the Liverpool fans a load of stick.
There is also rivalries between the London clubs and some great banter between those Premier League fans. Chelsea are probably the team disliked most in the capital and have a strong rivalry with West Ham United and of course there is the rivalry between Arsenal and Tottenham fans.
There is always good Premier League fan banter to be found and Social Media is always good for it. However, the Football League seems to have even better banter amongst fans with a lot of their ‘casuals’ engaging into a lot of rivalry week in week out.
With some big teams in the Sky Bet Championship such as Leeds United, Nottingham Forest, Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday, there is always going to be good fan banter between the clubs.
Leeds banter is probably the most seen element of this and that is largely to events on the pitch. After they fell apart last season and failed to get back into the Premier League, oppositions fans were quick to remind the Elland Road supporters that Leeds ‘feel apart again’.
The photo below shows some good Leeds banter when they scored a goal towards the end of the 2018/19 season and sent their fans into meltdown in the away end.
