    Europe, Nationalism and The Scousers

    Right Boys and Girls, Champions League is about to commence and would like to get some stuff off my chest.

    I HATE people that say "oh, but Liverpool/Chelsea/Arsenal are English and therefore you should support them". Like b*llocks I will! I really, honestly, TRULY dont give a flying Klinsmann about country in the champions League... Ill save my patriotism/pessimism for the international scene where dreams are made (then swiftly broken). Im sure none of the other english teams give a f*ck about us, so why should I reciprocate. IN FACT, just because they want it so much, (ie. Chelsea/Liverpool) i want them to fail spectacularly. Is this so wrong? Am I doing a disservice to this country?

    • I'd love to know what is English about Liverpool and Francenal right now!?! Which player represents our country for Wengers bunch of foreigners?!

      Its just peoples opinions, in a way I can kind of understand them wanting to see English clubs do well, I used to when I was younger but the rivalry is so intense for some of us, and I honestly CANNOT understand a true manc wanting to see a scouser raise his grubby thieving hands to us with 6 fingers - remember robbie fowlers five fingered taunt?

      FUCK THEM! I LOVE how Francenal fans claim Wenger is the best in the league (they are saying that now) but he is INCAPABLE of winning the CL!

      Football is a COMPETITIVE sport, competition to be better than everyone else (especially our fierce rivals) and I ONLY want to see United win the champions league, otherwise I hope it goes somewhere out of the country like......like Kiev.

      • FFS, by now you should have realised that winning a Cup competition is NOT a good yardstick to measure how good a manager is, the league is the most accurate means of assessing great managers and their overall coaching skills. FYI, Millwall reached their first ever FA Cup Final in May 2004 with the 50/50 chance of winning the FA Cup, does that mean Millwall were the second best club in the country in 2004? NO, if the draw favours your team, any team can win any cup competitions including the CL. Therefore, your reasoning failed at the first hurdle. Come up with another reason.

    • Of course you are, if United aren't in it you should support the other English teams, unless you're Irish, Welsh or Scottish, in which case you can please yourself cos you're gonna win fuck all anyway.

    • Teq its a reasonable position to take. I have a different view: Like you, first and foremost I want United to win the CL. Second, I want the EPL sides to do well to keep Platini's plans at bay to clip us back down to 2 or 3 places. We've had one EPL side in each of the last 3 finals and 3 out of 4 of last year's semi-finalists. If United are knocked out I tend to favour an EPL side over their opposition from other leagues. Overall, patriotism is about your national side, not club football. As a Welsh supporter, I always support the other British sides England, Scotland or the Irish teams when Wales aren't playing. Whilst I tend to support the other EPL sides in Europe there is no patriotic obligation to do so.

    • TBH, most fans don't give a toss about how well other teams except their own club perform in the CL and would rather prefer other clubs not in the same country of origin to do well even if their own club is knocked out of the CL in order to deny their rivals the bragging rights that goes with it. Sadly that's the plain truth and one can understand why most fans feel this way.

    • Lol, they love me so much on your board I have exchanged emails with some of the regulars! How many times have you heard someone say 'I like readings roonaldos posts because he;s funny and often correct'?

      All the time!

      Find one guy on here who thinks your spamming is funny?

      Almost everyone here thinks your posts are just plain awful. So just f*ck off d*ckwad.

    • Lets throw the Assanal licker overboard.

    • Damn right puniverse, send him packing. F*cking Francenal yank glory boy.

    • me don't think so "big debts"" fan.

    • "What is luck exactly?!"

      Luck is getting out of the group stages in 2nd place and drawing:

      (a) Rosenberg in the 1/4 final

      (b) Shakhtar Donetsk in the semi-final

      (c) Lazio in the Final

      And that's luck explained in easy A B C steps, get me driff big debts fan?

    • I'm with teq here. I hope liverpool, chelsea and arsenal all fall flat on their faces. I'll go one further. I hope some of their players get injured too
