    Dear Hornets fans,

    I’m a Wolves fan – coming in peace and hoping you can help me out…

    I’m a senior Lecturer at Birmingham City University, writing academic papers as part of my PhD portfolio (Koln University). My research has a focus on the language used by football fans at games – for some people it’s ‘banter’ and for others, it has become a ‘hate crime’. It is a complex, emotive issue.

    I want to find out what you think of the language used – I want you to be honest.

    The questionnaire is entirely voluntary and completely anonymous. I will only use the data I obtain for academic papers and once complete I will share the data with you on this forum. I have ethical approval granted from Koln University and approval from your administrator for this forum.

    I will be comparing your answers with those from supporters of Arsenal, Wolves, Blackburn and Newcastle.

    The questionnaire should only take you a couple of minutes and I would like to thank you in advance. Here is the link:


    One last thing – I’m still crying over the semi-final…

    Kind regards,

    We are still crying about that SF - the beginning of the end for us.
    League form crashed, missed out on UEFA, humiliation in front of the world, and that form followed into following season. Would rather we had lost.

    What has caused you to choose the club's mentioned? Is it a random selection, a geographical spread or is there a historical context to it? IE Elton John being our former owner.

    What has caused you to use that apostrophe?
