  1. I think the YouTube and Twitter approach is the right way to go especially for bringing in young fans who get a lot of their exposure to football online now. It's good too that its all quite daft and light hearted rather than the usual big business style of spamming shit month old memes.
  2. Just talking from experience man. I'm 24 so aye I suppose I'm young. Very seldom met a motherwell fan when I was at school and even now the majority of people I talk to are Rangers or Celtic fans who question why I would support Motherwell who are our local team. I also sit in the East Stand (singing section) and pretty much only hear Since I Was Young, Super Well and individual player songs sang and any derogatory songs are team specific too. I will say though that I've noticed a lot more Rangers and Celtic fans denouncing the sectarian element these days which is nice and beyond banter I don't have any ill feelings for either team. I know there are a large portion of true fans among them who genuinely love the teams but the reason I turned away from them in the first place still stands and I'm not the only person I know who feels the same. Like I said though I'm just speaking from my experience and it is what it is. Sent from my FIG-LX1 using Tapatalk
  3. Was brought up a Rangers fan as much like everyone in Lanarkshire, you're from a Rangers family or a Celtic family. Once I hit high school and everyone started the sectarian patter it made me bitter about football in general. Few years later I started working as a steward at smaller grounds (Morton, Albion, Dumbarton etc) and seeing the passion of those fans got me right back into it. Now I follow Motherwell who I feel a proper connection with, I'm 10 minutes from Fir Park and the only time I have to deal with sectarian pish is when the arse cheeks and their fans come to town.
