Trend-spotting: Why we fall for certain international football clubs

Why do certain international football clubs have an emotional sway over Indian fans? How do we find a connection with what is geographically so far removed from us? We follow our favourite European or English club religiously, and sometimes, it can feel like being in an unrequited relationship. Sometimes, we love a club but it doesn’t love us back; doesn’t reward us with trophies for our loyalty. And even then, we remain besotted. In this episode of Trend-spotting, Daksh and Gaurav are joined by Mihir Vasavda as they try to understand why we fall for these clubs and whether certain clubs tend to attract a certain kind of fan.
