Basically, what are your thoughts on Man U? I pretty much hate them, for many reasons.
1) Alex Ferguson is a nasty git who can chew gum for England.
2) Manchester United fans
In short, the majority of these 'die hard fans' aren't even from Manchester (like people all over England and also in other flipping countries like from Thailand!), have never been to Old Trafford, and probably never will, they call it 'united' like they were the first football club to have 'united' in their names (which they blatantly fucking weren't), they only follow man united because they are successful and because everyone else does, they are fans even though the club has no heart whatsoever and follow man united blindly, like an idiot.
3) They have way too much money, and it's boring to see them win the FA all the time.
A bit of variation is not a bad thing, and nowadays it seems all the same teams are up in the same places, with no real changes.
4) It seems everyone in England is a fan, simply because the team is successful and because 'everyone else supports them'.
5) They've become a corporate brand.
They bring out new kits all the time and charge high prices for them when it was probably made for pennies. Most of the seats in Old Trafford are empty because companies buy the seats, and then nobody in the company goes. Tickets are too expensive for many of their real supporters who actually live in Manchester, or have a genuine reason (such as the family supporting them) to support the team.
6) The media just loves them, people seem to lick their arses all the time.
Even as there are all of the above problems. Manchester United make front page all the time, and are displayed prominently on the telly.
7) Their merchandising
Go in to any sports shop in the UK and see how many Man United related things you can find, and look at the prices. I've already commented somewhat on this above.

Sure, use the 'ur juz jealous' route. No, I'm really not jealous. I love my team even though they're not in the premiership, have had season tickets a lot, live in my team's area and am not afraid to say I support Nottingham Forest.
Fine for you, as you're in the minority of real fans. You're not one of the mindless zombie fans who don't live anywhere near manchester nor have any relation to the club, nor have even watched the team at Old Trafford. But you can't say my points aren't valid.

the whole " In short, the majority of these 'die hard fans' aren't even from Manchester (like people all over England and also in other flipping countries like from Thailand!), have never been to Old Trafford, and probably never will" is just stupid.... so you have to be from manchester to like man u?? I live in a country where the local sport is baseball so the football teams are pretty much amateurs, we've never participated in the world cup or anything like that( I still support them and go to a match from time to time ..) , so if I wanna see great football I'll watch whatever team I wanna watch and if I've liked the team since I was 12 I can say I'm a fan If I want to, yes they change their kits every year so what ??? it's just bussines, buy them if you have the money ,if you don't have it then stick to your old one, I've never heard anyone say that if you don't have the newest kit you're not a fan , that's just ridiculous; an YES!!the media loves them they 're always in the front page , and on TV...wanna know why??? 'cause they're one of the best football teams in the world!! they have great players , great history,and a coach that's FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!!( He has won more trophies than any other manager in the history of English football and first manager to lead an English team to the treble of league championship, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League. As well as being the only manager to win the FA Cup five times, he is also the only manager ever to win three successive league championships in England with the same club (1998-1999, 1999-2000 and 2000-2001) so "Alex Ferguson is a nasty git who can chew gum for England"???

You're not a real fan. Fine, you watch them on TV, but you're really not a fan.
I didn't say that Ferguson wasn't a good manager, I just said that as a person he's a grumpy old grouch when things don't go his way and all the time pretty much.
The fact they make new kits all the time just shows how money grubbing they really are.
Their real supporters (aka who live in Manchester and watch them at Old Trafford) have to pay exorbitant prices to get in the stadium, in fact there are kids who wash people's cars for money at the stadium all the time so that they can buy about one ticket to a match.

I've never heard anyone say that if you don't have the newest kit you're not a fan

Unfortunately I have heard someone say that, and there is a lot of pressure on kids to buy the new kit like their friends even if they don't have the money.
I didn't say you had to be from Manchester to like Man United, I simply said that if you're a genuine fan, then you should go to Old Trafford or one of the team's away games.
I can think of plenty of other notable English teams that should be on the TV and on the newspaper, e.g. Chelsea. The commentators on TV would take a friggin bullet for Man U, and bring the team up when there's no need to, in a totally unrelated game.

I've watched the fans of Manchersted U in Euro Trip and they're silly as hell. I think they all act like they are right now in real life?
'nyways, they're a really loyal fan. I mean, heck, they're really motivated and sure that England are the best. Haha.
>_<

.....ummmmm i think that arsenal is really much better than man.u. even though they are really having a rather unexpected season.

Yeah, I've never liked Man. U, and although I live in Birmingham, more of the people I know support them rather than Birmingham City or Aston Villa.
I like Birmingham City, although I have no problem admitting they're not the best team in the world.
