    You’re right about the two types of fans. But it’s been a thing since at least the 1980s. Lots of boys become fans of whichever club is the champion or FA Cup winner, and stick with them for life. Many never went to a game.

    What’s happened over time is that TV and merchandising revenue have become bigger for clubs than fans going to matches. It’s why matches are all over the week, instead of the traditional Saturday and Wednesday. Putting some matches on Monday and Tuesday allows Sky viewers to have a match to watch.
