    Man Utd - Gravy Train Supporters

    It makes me laugh reading your page and seeing Man U fans on TV - "We" this "we" that when the team has been winning trophies - but another empty handed season will see them scuttling for the doors and becoming Chelsea supporters.

    It is plastic support and its well known that few Man U supporters come from Manchester - Roy Keane called them the "Prawn Sandwich Brigade". No doubt about Man Utd record - but there are so many who just hop on the bandwagon when things are going well and thin out when the going get's tough.( and the crap on these pages about Mancengland)
    For the record: I guess this season Man U will win the League Cup (2-0) they will come 4th or 5th in the League.
    At the end of season Scholes and Nistelroy will be away(they are not the players they used to be) along with Smith who isn't up to the mark.
    Silvestre?? Free Transfer and some speed training!! Ferdinand? Decent O'K' but the most lax and overated defender in the league. There
    Are lean times ahead for Man U --Chelsea have got it all sewn up)
    and Rooney(a remarkable talent who carries all utd hopes on his shouders straight after joining them) will have a short lived career if someone doesn't get a grip of him and calm him down and not play him so much -- Other wise some wank talentless scumbag like Vinnie Jones will come along and clobber him just to make a name for himself.

    Alex looks like he's struggling to get out of bed after the sessions so it looks like close to end game -- Bring back RK as manager to Kick arse and clear out and see the rue supporter who stick with the club.

    • Out of 30 - barely 1 or 2 coherent responses!
      As I said, this is the mindset that plagues football and society.
      I have just been sickened to read a post saying Man Utd deserve another place crash-UNACCEPTABLE- REPULSIVE SICKENING -- in the NAME of a GAME!!!
      Will those scumbags justify the post by their love of a team? Probably!

      The message boards are a forum for discusions of opinions from anyone and Yahoo lays out the rules on what it considers reasonable. I don't think either of my mails have breached that code.

      Now back to my wind up:
      1. Just look at the statements that RK made.
      2. Regarding Rooney - An incredible young talent- 20 years of age- joins the club for Everton and carries the whole hopes of Man Utd on his shoulders- an incredible task for a new player let alone someone so young.

      Lastly a question about the comments made recently by Sven Goran Erikkson about:
      (a) paying over the odds for players
      (b) Manager taking backhanders
      (c) a cesspit
      No Finger pointing but
      Could any of these points be in reference to Manchester United??

      • it's east to see why the media and the neutrals hate United.
        Somebody (Mr Richards) makes a few statements - some of which are correct and quite logical and he gets abused.
        Wake up and smell the coffee lads...
        debate the issues,don't abuse people for their opinions. it wasn't an anti United posting. It was an unbiased opinion based on the facts. If you open your eyes you will see that. We all want the same thing. United back to their greatness of the 90's. We were luckier then because the opposition was weaker than now. We raised the bar in terms of trophies and we put English football back on the European and World map. Just look at the money other clubs have had to spend just to come up to our exceptionally high standards and we are still second in the league and still in both domestic cup competitions. Football has changed completely since the Premier league and Sky got involved but credit should be given to United for making the game enjoyable, exciting and sexy again. Had it not been for the exciting brand of football WE brought to the country on a weekly basis (thanks to Sky) the game might have died on it's arse and never became the game we know today. Stop knocking the club and anybody that has an opinion that might be different from yours!

    • 4th or 5th in the league???????? - you talk like you think you know it all then make a ridiculous statement like that
      who is going to beat utd apart from liverpool or chelski - arsenal, totenham, wigan i dont think so

      utd will finish 3rd at least, rio isnt the most lax defender in england(he was at start of season but recently he has been great in defence), and smith has done well in midfield and van nistlerooy is top scorer in league so i think that proves he isnt past it

    • every day, i hear the words , how many man utd fans come from manchester,im sick off it, i dont care where they come from, as long as they suport the team, in good days and bad ones, i would rather have a man, u fan from china, that stretford, if the stretford fan just winges all the time, we cant win everything every yr, we yes we, if some one in china wants to put needed cash in to united funds, then who am i to argue, they buy kits ect, yes u will allways get peaple suporting winning teams, hell i did when england won the ashs, but im no cricket fan, mufc is in my heart, even if they were a none league team, even if they were getting beat 10---0 every week, as for bringing back keeno as manager , how stupid is that,

    • same old, same old shit being the greatest club in the land is always going to bring out the jealous streak in twats like you. sure we are having a lean spell at the moment, so what, you cant win em all, but we will stick with our club through thick and thin. the core of manu fans who attend matches (like myself) are no different from any other teams supporters, loyal and proud and its a measure of the clubs greatness that it attracts fans from many different countries despite the fact they will probably never visit O.T.
      incidently i never post messages on other teams boards trying to pull down other supporters, people only try to pull down what is great or better than they have so my friend you are your own worst critic. get a grip, get a life.

      • Amazing isn't it.
        I was just browsing at Man U Board because it has the highest numbers of posts. I could not help but notice the infantile and malicious tone of many of the posts. -- fowler homeosexual, scouse this and that etc.. - So I decide put some bait out which was taken - Hook -line and sinker.

        What I said was fairly objective and was somewhere near to what Roy Keane had said - but the hysterical replies I saw were quite pathetic.

        They can't take anything they dish out --These people with the threatening posts are the same types of "football fans" who threaten to murder the Glazer family, or in Liverpool murder Steven Gerrards family if he transfers to Chelsea - or hang David Beckam from the lamp post after his World Cup sending off.
        It is a lynch mob mentality which plagues football and society -- and their threats , they believe, are justified because they love a football team!!

        Gravy train supporting is part of human nature - they like type see they are winners despite their desperate lives and this give a sense of belonging. It happens eveerywhere, When Keegan was a Newcastle, Arsenal over last few years and I bet Chelsea have got about another 25000 supporters from other teams this season.
        Watch the recent results when they didn't go United way - heads down(City - 3 MU 1) -- despite Man U having the best long term records. As RK keane said they all go quiet".
        But remember most of all its only a game and no matter waht the diffrences - there is no need to get the bottle, gun or knife out to someone who begs to differ.

        On a closing note of the 19 responses - I would say to probably 14 of the morons - look at the nearest wall from where you are standing by the PC accessing the yahoo page and you will probably see a sign which reads:

        "DSS COMPUTERS ARE ONLY TO BE USED FOR JOB SEARCH"

        All the best

    • ok,i see your a new chelsea fan then

    • Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

      oh and get a life!

    • What an awful post. Mr r (retarded?) richards what the fuck are you on about? That was a useless attempt at winding us up and has nothing to back up its claims. In fact you've just done what most of our jealous rivals did about a year ago so get with it mate! The only guy backing you up is someone hiding behind a fake profile, their so spineless were not even sure if its a guy! It makes ME laugh looking at the size of your post, that you needed to take the time out of your jobless day to write all that waffle because it hurts you so much to know that the extent of our problems amounts to 2nd in the league. Their are as many fans in Manchester that support United as ANY club in England has local fans - FACT! Now think up a new one if you can. Its not our fault everyone outside of Manchester and England loves the way we play so much that they have no choice but to support us! Despite Chelskis success they will never have the fan base we have, especially not from the style of play Mourinho has given them! Liked your analysis of the players too, well thought out, well for a monkey anyway. 4th or 5th in theb league??!! Whats the point mate?! You know that wont happen so get a life.

      • Thank you! Sorry I woke you up from yur mid morning slumber- but your GIRO is probably ready for collecting.

        Though not a MU suporter -Here is someone who cheered and shouted when Man Utd won the European Cup against Bayern Munich and any other games where they have showed the brand name of UK football..

        They have lost the plot that is why RK left.. Chelsea are so far ahead because the game has been bought out by the Russian and fortunatly for him - the guy he gave the money to has good judgement - I don't think anyone will get near Chelsea for may seasons, they will take their pick at what they want to do.

        Lots of posers coming to Man U.(like Ferdinand) Smith tries,but never a Man U player. Silvestre - has he aan iron ball chained to his leg?? I call Man U players -the likes of Beckham, Schmeical,Cantona, Giggs, Rooney,

        You just watch the comments with supporters after some Man U news -- it's all gravy train and when the going get's tough: there is silence.

      • Get a life Mr R (?) you know nothing, except that you like to wear a velvet glove when masturbating to whoopi goldberg pictures.

    • Turn up at Old Trafford and see where the fans are heading you cock!! 75'000 next season for a team that wins fuck all!! Yeah full of glory hunters that isnt it!! Just shown yourself to be a right bellend!!
