I know its already been brought up, but it really annoys me so I thought I'd say my bit. Our fans get so much stick for not coming from Manchester and being glory hunters and it's just so unfair. Don't people realises that your team chooses you? I'm a Manchester United fan because my mothers Irish and over there you either support United or Liverpool. I was pretty much told by my family I was supporting United by my uncles who had supported United all through their barren patch. They weren't glory hunters, and neither am I. Its so upsetting as well because Manchester United means so much to me. I always watch United on the tele even if it means not going out that day, and I would travel to every home game if I could (and I live in crappy London) but I just cant get tickets, and even if I could, I wouldn't be able to afford them, and I know that theres so many United fans who would travel even further to see United play. I know all about the history of United and then all I get is bloody goonners coming up to me giving me abuse when they don't know anything about their club.

I agree that there is a lot of so called United supporters who don't know a thing about United and just support them as an easy option, and they give the rest of us a bad name. All I can say is that I was born a Red and I will DIE a Red, even if we never see another bit of silverware for 100 years (god forbid!)

not sayin u lot r glory hunters, coz u probably rnt, just hard to get to games which is understandable (considering amount of japanese tourists that go :) )

anyhoo, i dont like that fact that chelsea have suddenly got a wave of fairweather fans! its annoying and they dont really support the club, they just go to see big name players.
Eg. when i went to birmingham match at home (yes yes, we wernt great) a guy infront of me said why do we call it football & not soccer... ffs, go away if u dont support the team, make room for some1 who does!
good luck in ur fa cup game (as much i hope to see u go out)... we're gonna need it ffs. ARSENAL!? again!? away!? again!? not looking good im afraid :(
ah well COME ON CHELSEA!!!!!
 
Similar to Real fans.
Ask someone on the street he'll say he supports ManU,
ask him 2morrow it's Chelsea, ask again it's Real.

EXACTLY!

i gave up arguing this point long ago, as i too started supporting them in their barron spell!

good on ya mate!
 
Most people first heard of MU so support them.

I was like that.
But if I'm given the choice now it might not have been them...

me too. but like i said on here long ago, you cant change your team after 14 years of supporting them can you???? (in my case anyway)
 
Far too many supporters have absolutely no clue as to what constitutes supporting a club for a reason. Take my friends for example, one supports Man U because his Dad went to college there. Now correct me if I am wrong, but that is not a reason, it's an excuse. Or, another friend who supports Liverpool because his cousin does. Now to me it makes no sense whatsoever to say that. Now my point is, it's very very common in Man U fans for these excuses to be used for supporting a team. It's why I dislike Man U intensely.

And trust me, I am a born and bred Gooner, it will never change. ;)

Yeah and thats great, you were born a bred a gooner, I was born a bred a red devil. Aliright I'm not from Manchester, but how did I know that when I was a toddaler? I had no say in the matter, mainly because of my Irish background. Any one that says you have to support your local team is talking shit. Your team picks YOU! you don't pick them. Even if when I'd got a bit older and United weren't doing well, it wouldn't have changed me supporting United, and it never will. I've always supported United more when things aren't going well and weather we're successful or not has no bearing as to why I support them.
 
Man U did indeed choose you, however, if you life in the south of England, you will see an abnormal amount of Man U shirts. They support them purely because of the success.

and isn't that one of the perks of being succesful? I mean I really don't see the issue, I've never really connected with the notion that all mancs or most of them are glory hunters, and if they were who cares. And Man United has always been the best supported club in england.
