not actual town fans though

I think Daisy May actually is - the shirts she wears are hers I believe?

I am pretty sure in an interview after winning the award she said that neither her nor her brother were actual football fans but the shirts came from somebody else in the cast who they had known for a while.

I may have missheard but I am pretty sure thats what was said, they said that neither had actually heard of Norris before writing the series but a friend said a few things about him and they found it very funny so used it.

Whossisface who plays Kurtan is a Fulham fan, he's on record multiple times about that. Maybe she said they weren't Town fans?

Charlie Cooper is definitely a Fulham fan. The early rumour was that they were Oxford fans poking fun, then (and I've read a few Oxford fans say this) the producer was die hard Oxford fan but his Twitter profile has him down as a Spurs fan.

It ultimately doesn't matter who they follow in real life, the most important thing is that they've linked Swindon Town to a nice bit of British comedy history.

Could well have been that.

Fulham have claimed him

I wasn't overly fussed about it but then I've never seen the show! Just a bit of a gimmick wasn't it but a lot of people found it funny.

The best part was the Oxford fans who seemed to think we'd legitimately built a statue of her and spent a few days wanking themselves silly about it on social media. I suppose they had no other stick to beat us with given the season we've had so far.

Must admit I didn't find it remotely interesting first time around,  only watched 2 or 3 and even then not all of the way through,  not sure how it happened but stumbled upon it again a few weeks ago,   watched one and that was it - watched the whole 3 series over the next few days and thoroughly enjoyed it.
