Our man @SteTudor123 gives his take on the supporters that make the most noise in the Premier League - who ranks as #1 in his loudest fans rankings?

10) Brentford

The Premier League relegation betting presently has the Bees in real danger of dropping this term and that would be a huge shame because the Gtech Community Stadium is the archetypal tough place to go for top-flight opponents, with a boisterous crowd and well-organised team.

Thomas Frank’s side are physical, talented, and capable of beating anyone on their day. 

Bees fans have seen some big-time scalps at home and been treated to a lot of entertaining matches, all of which have been accompanied by a respectable raucous. 

9) Aston Villa

Combine a gargantuan Holte End with the vastly improved football served up under Unai Emery and what you have is a famous old ground that has been reignited in recent times.

Villa Park has never been a place for the faint-hearted but too often in the past the acoustics have been made up of groans at a misplaced pass, or moans as another chance goes begging.

Now, as the Villans chase a top four finish that would make a mockery of the pre-season Premier League betting the excitement levels have been ratcheted up. 

This corner of the Midlands is positively buzzing on matchdays. 

8) Nottingham Forest

Since securing promotion in 2022 the City Ground has been bouncing with their loyal fanbase revelling in their return to the big time.

It naturally follows therefore that a clear disparity exists between Forest’s home form and their away record.

This season alone Aston Villa, Manchester United and West Ham have all come unstuck as Forest’s forwards are noisily willed on to attack from minute one. 

7) Everton

On any given day Goodison Park is a hostile environment, its old wooden seats creaking under the weight of Scousers who aren’t shy in telling the referee he’s having a stinker in between vociferously encouraging Everton midfielders to get their foot in and commit.

Add in a club-wide resentment at the recent Premier League charges – since reduced on appeal – and this fabulous historic ground has become particularly animated of late, shaken to its foundations. 

6) Crystal Palace 

Just five teams have a lower average attendance than Palace, which makes it all the more impressive how thunderously loud Selhurst Park can get. 

The ground feeds off the sheer passion and colour of the Homesdale Stand where the club’s ultras reside.

Known as the Homesdale Fanatics, the atmosphere they generate evokes Dortmund’s ‘Yellow Wall’, bedecked as it is with flags and banners. 

5) Arsenal

Don’t take our word for it. Ask Wolves striker Hwang Hee-chan who recently claimed Gooners were the noisiest fans in the top-flight. 

And the South Korean star is not far wrong either, despite the old jibe about the Emirates being a library enduring in some quarters.

With the Gunners very much on an upcurve under Mikel Arteta and challenging for silverware again, the emergence of the ‘Ashburton Army’ and a new anthem in the form of ‘North London Forever’ has seen the ground come alive like never before

4) Manchester United

The fear factor may have left Old Trafford post-Ferguson, while the only people who call it the ‘Theatre of Dreams’ these days are former players reminiscing on a bygone era. Heck, even the roof leaks.

But even so, let’s have it right. When United are in full flow, showing the attacking adventure they used to be associated with, its 74,000 inhabitants still make a tremendous, tumultuous din.

3) Liverpool

Many a time an away supporter at Anfield feels the hairs on the back of their neck spring up involuntarily. 

They grimace as a rousing rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone is heartily sung. They scowl as their team concedes, a goal that prompts the kind of noise dogs are kept in for on Bonfire Night. And yet still they feel it and admire it. They can’t help it. 

Long considered one of the best atmospheres in world football, the arrival of Jurgen Klopp’s heavy-metal football has only raised the decibel levels further in recent seasons. 

2) Tottenham Hotspur

An awful lot of thought and research went into making Tottenham’s new stadium one of the most atmospheric around.

Its South Stand is one of the largest of its kind, creating, in the words of the ground’s lead architect, a “17,500 seat megaphone”. Elsewhere, two enormous blocks of general admission seating ensures that two typically quiet sections are never less than lively. 

Moreover, its bowl-like structure was specifically designed with acoustics in mind. When all of this comes together, and Spurs are on the front foot, it can be deafening. 

1) Newcastle United

A one-club city, Newcastle has always been blessed with a fiercely loyal and passionate fan-base and with St James Park their cathedral the congregation head there every fortnight to make the almightiest racket.

With their fortunes dramatically improved post-takeover, and the Magpies now competing at the top half of the table, not the bottom, the volume has been turned up to 11.
