St Pauli

Probably AFC Wimbledon.

Real Man U supporters probably (those in Manchester or brought up there, not the plastic glory seekers who probably have no political opinions).
These are two really good examples I didn't consider. I'm not sure if I'd call them 'left-wing' in terms of fans, but they both very much exist on a 'people against big business' basis.

UPDATE: When you said Man U for some reason I thought you meant FC United of Manchester, not Man U. My bad.

The only football club’s fans that hate their own country are the supporters of Rangers who absolutely despise the Scottish national team with a passion

People around the world think of Liverpool firstly as the Merseyside team who are left-wing but fully agree that Everton are the more community based team, and have a stronger support with the city of Liverpool, as oppose to Liverpools larger nationwide following, therefore making Everton more of the working class / left wing team on Merseyside
It’s absolute nonsense to say that there are more Everton fans than Liverpool ones in the city. This a myth peddled by Everton fans and the media because the club doesn’t have much else going for it.

Anecdotal but 80%+ of scourers I've met in London, and nearly all students at my uni, were Everton fans. Add to that Bellew/Rooney etc and the long list of LFC legends who are Blue and it's not a big jump to conclude that there are more Everton fans in the City. May be that they are more vocal about it though.

Cant see why it would be the case but just my experience.

I lived in Liverpool for 3 years and this simply is not the case. clearly way more Liverpool fans than Everton, although there are obviously a sizeable number of Everton fans in the city for obvious reasons

Its difficult to paint any club in England with the 'left-wing' brush as I would say every club in England will have elements of right-wing and left-wing supporters amongst their ranks.
Whitehawk (in the National League south I think).

Manchester United.

They have a massive Anti fascist/anti racist presence within the match going reds. Manchester and Salford are both Labour safe seats and have rich radical history from feminism to socialism, the city of Manchester is a left wing city and this is the political attitude of a massive core of the local fanbase. Marcus Rashford, Eric Cantona. Both stood up for what was right. Busby and Ferguson both had socialist/left wing views and spoke about it openly. Busby was a big friend of shankly. - Liverpool and Manchester united two North West powerhouses with a similar story.

Not to forget Gary Neville, who is holding the current Tory government to account, as a player was known as Red Nev for his socialist views.

Before millennials were born these clubs were working class and now be right wing. So corbynites would be communists and we would lose our freedom of speech and movement.
