THAT LONDON'S FOOTBALL FANS

Before Chelsea's frankly pretty flukey Champions League win this May, it was well known that no team from London had ever won Big Cup. At first glance, such a fact appears decidedly strange, given the size of the city and the number of clubs...only that, perhaps, is the point: no other city the size of London has quite so many top-flight clubs. Anyway, the distribution of the city's variegated football fans is neatly shown by this map (a WIP).* The only club missing is, of course, Manchester United... 







* Thanks to Jake Goretzki for the source, not to mention the gag that follows, although I would also have made it. Open goal, eh?
