1. Steven Gerrard fans

Fans of Steven Gerrard are very vocal about their support for the player, more so than they are for the club. They hero-worship Gerrard and call him names like "Captain Fantastic, "greatest English midfielder" and "legend". If Steven Gerrard cries, they cry; if he smiles, they smile.

Gerrard fans are some of the most loyal people you can have in your life. Not only are they loyal to Liverpool, but also to their friends and family. If you have a Gerrad fan in your life, you will never walk alone.

They are very whole-hearted people. Just like how they put 100% of their dedication into supporting their idol, Gerrard fans are very dedicated and passionate about the projects they are working on.

Gerrard fans live in the past. They often talk about the past and are not willing to accept that both Steven Gerrard and Liverpool may not be as good as they were anymore.

2. Robin van Persie fans

Fans of Van Persie are definitely not supporters of Arsenal F.C.. Instead, they are confident, passionate Manchester United fans for life.

Van Persie fans can be quite ruthless in the journey of achieving their goals. They would do anything to get what they want, even if it means prioritising themselves over their team.

They are also some of the funniest and wittiest people who give good banter. Chances are, you will have fun teasing and joking with them.

It is hard to find people who pitch their support for Van Persie as they are not the type who follow mainstream trends. They would rather voice their love for something or someone they truly believe in even though it is not widely loved, rather than liking something just to join the bandwagon.

3. Lionel Messi fans

Fans of Argentine player Lionel Messi think they know anything and everything about the world of football. They are unabashed to give you their views and analysis about football.

Messi fans are also not afraid to call out mistakes of other people. They would be honest with you when you have done something wrong. However, they are also not afraid to acknowledge their own mistakes. They try their best in everything they do, but will admit it when they have failed.

People who appreciate Messi appreciate fine skills. They are intelligent thinkers who take their time to analyse a situation before deciding and taking action.

Many say Messi fans are mainstream football fans. While Messi could be one of the best players out there, many just support the "King" for the sake of joining the bandwagon.

4. Cristiano Ronaldo fans

Fans of Cristiano Ronaldo are showmen, or some say show-offs. They attract attention and impress people with their style, flair and the fanciest gear that they own. These are the things that they think make them great.

Cristiano Ronaldo fans are some of the most happening, trendy and stylish people in town. They follow trends and are up to date with the latest hairstyles, coolest clothes and newest gadgets.

Blinded by their love for the Portuguese footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo fans have a tendency to blame the referee and other outside factors when Ronaldo's team fail to win. This is because they believe Ronaldo can always carry the team no matter what.

Many female fans (and some male fans) of Ronaldo claim to love the player, but do not know anything about the game.
