Football fans make up a tiny proportion of the country’s population.

Football hooligans make up a tiny proportion of the population, football fans are significantly more numerous.
The sales of football kits and paraphernalia, the number of fans on the terraces watching matches each week ( and not only for the major clubs) plus the number of teams etc for kids should give you a clue as to just how popular football is in the UK.

Football is the national sport.

Just tested myself on the football allegiance of my facebook friends list. Only 5 or 6 that I didn't know out of about 180, but that's because they're rugby players or American. I know the 2nd and 3rd teams of many of my friends such as Lazio, Inter and Olympiakos, and even have an absolutely lovely Wickham Wanderers fan on my list (bless! ). And as for 10 German Bombers...that's an incredibly long way down the list of chants commonly sung at England games.
Do you mean Wycombe wanderers? I have a few of their fans amongst my friends.

Fully agree about 10 German bombers.
