Football fans are an ignorant bunch, that goes for some of our own supporters too.

But when we decided to part ways with Sam Allardyce at the end of last season there seemed to be a hell of a lot more ignorant fans of other clubs criticising us for wanting better. Most of them expressed their sheer disbelief that we’d dared to sack him without understanding the different between ‘the sack’ and ‘choosing not to renew a contract.’

Then we had the whole ‘be careful what you wish for’ chat, seemingly because every other fan in the country genuinely believed any club with the sheer audacity to want more than route one, mind numbing football and mid-table mediocrity deserved all the ill-fortune they could get.

It was as if Sam Allardyce was seen as the only manager in the world capable of keeping a team in the Premier League by almost everyone lacking any real knowledge of the beautiful game.

Then came the appointment of Slaven Bilic. How dare we swap an old fashioned dinosaur of a manger for a young, exciting and charismatic coach from abroad. We should’ve been ashamed of ourselves.

What followed was, admittedly, a disastrous Europa League qualifying campaign that eventually saw us eliminated from a second rate team in Romania. Uh oh, was everyone right? Would we actually live to regret dreaming for a bigger, better and more exciting future?

Nope. Because now we’re 3rd in the Premier League and have beaten Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea in our opening 10 games of the season. Laugh. Out. Loud.

Where are all those haters now? Most of them are retreating back under their rocks as their sides enjoy mid-table mediocrity or the relegation zone (I’m mainly looking at you Chelsea fans).

So I thought It’d be a fund exercise to drag those ignorant fans from underneath their rocks and show the world just how ignorant they were of our intentions in the summer, and just how awful they are predicting the future.

So sit back, crack open a beer and prepare to laugh your way through some hilarious Twitter gold…

Hope he cashed out pretty quickly…

Stick to golf, Martyn.

Great tip, Dave…

Implode? Bad start? LOL!

Some Olympic Stadium hate…

50% ain’t bad…

Dimitri Payet was a pitiful signing though, wasn’t he Nick? Nick? NICK!?

LOL!

Everton fan Simon has his say…

Remember our place? Where’s that Simon? How about IN THE TOP FOUR!?

Richard’s had a mare…

“Held my nerve.” How’s your nerves now, Richard?

This Chelsea fan…

The words Michael Hector, Radamel Falcao and 15th spring to mind, Robbie.

Here’s everyone’s favourite ‘reporter’ Dominic…

Dimitri Payet, Manuel Lanzini and Victor Moses proving young Dominic wrong in superb fashion.

This City fan’s lost all respect…

But Christopher, your team could only score ONE GOAL FROM ABOUT 300 SHOTS!

Never, ever trust Gavin…

Ever.

Never before has one man been so wrong…

ROFL!

Will Anderson couldn’t pick his own nose…

Two weeks after he tweeted this his beloved Arsenal got turned over by his first ‘pick’ to go…

Ashley’s got more money than sense…

Cute.

You know, that fixture against Arsenal that we won 2-0.

A Preston fan, ladies and gentleman…

Must. Try. Harder.

“Downing a big miss!”

LOOOOOOOOOL!

What’s to fear?

Wrong about both us and Leicester. Never predict anything ever again, Paul.

Ignorance at its best…

“Be careful what you wish for.”

So there you have it, just a handful of fans from across the country who are now eating their words.

Meanwhile, West Ham fans be like…
