RICK JACKSON: How I led Pompey to European glory

Have your say

I was talking to an old 
Duran Duran fan the other day and she kept referring to herself as a ‘Duranie’, like all proper Duran 
Duran fans do or did during the ’80s when it was cool to like them.

But this got me thinking about Duran Duran’s great rivals, Spandau Ballet, and I realised that I can’t think of any group name that Spandau Ballet fans were known by in the same way that Duran Duran fans were.

So, if they didn’t have a group name, can we try to come up with one retrospectively please?

My term would be ‘Span-Fan’ or ‘Spanatic’ but I reckon you could do better!
