    your local football league club ?

    Dirty Barry I will help you out here.

    I am Gooner who lives in Clapton, Hackney. I am one mile closer to Leyton Orient.

    No I know where you are coming from and so do 90% of Utd fans, if they are honest.

    I don't think I would be wrong in suggesting, over half Utd's supporters have never been near the place. And lets face it, of the non-manchester Manchester United supporters from the last twenty years the vast majority, simply chose the team at the top of the league to support. Fair enough!!!

    If City had been top dogs, they would have been wearing Sky Blue.

    If you live within an hours car journey from manchester this is not aimed at you.

      So you're a plastic glory hunter then?



      "the non-manchester Manchester United supporters from the last twenty years the vast majority, simply chose the team at the top of the league to support."

      20 years ago United hadn't won the league for over 20 years, so that's bollox.



      "over half Utd's supporters have never been near the place"

      Seeing as we have an estimated 200 million supporters it doesn't take a brain surgeon to work that one out.


      .

    • I just think this 'support your local team' stuff is just bollocks. There are a 1001 reasons why you might not.

      And here we have a Gooner as a classic case. Lives near The O's yet supports Arsenal. And why Arsenal and not Spurs who are probably just as close? Perhaps Arsenal were winning things when he chose his team?

      And half Arsenal's supporters haven't been near their place. So what?

      Barry, would you like to actually debate or comment on anything?

      • I agree you are the top team in terms of success. Over the last twenty years.

        I am north london boy and wouldn't ever even consider supporting a team in south london, let alone in a place I have no connection too.

        Most of your fans simply chose the team at the top of the league. And there are loads of other reasons you can fool yourselves with, but that is the main reason for most of your supporters over the last fifteen years.
