- Anyone else enjoying the bleating Man Utd fans?
got to admit its a bit irrational but i despise man utd more than i actually like any other team 🙂
think it stems from supporting oldham many moons ago and seeing them kicking tables and swearing their heads off in the local pub when things were going against them in the FA cup semi against oldham in the 90s
then when hughes i think it was equalised, the place went wild with all the ‘champ-i-o-nis champ-i-o-nis’ sh*te.
just despise em and usually only watch match of the day if i know theyve been beat 😀Posted 4 years agogrumMember
It’s hard to hate Man United with the same passion since Alex Ferguson retired. He may be a legend in the game but he was also a petulant bully who used his influence to intimidate referees, and chucked his toys out of the pram when he didn’t get exactly what he wanted.
David Moyes on the other hand I almost feel sorry for. Almost.Posted 4 years ago
’tis great fun listening to the bleating
The other thing which makes me laugh is how they say Chelsea & City bought the league in recent years. They clearly don’t remember that that’s what they did for the previous 10 years.Posted 4 years ago
The money they spent is eye watering although they did it by buying 2 or 3 expensive players every year.
Ferdinand 30m, Veron 28m etc etc. These were years ago too
I’m sure they’re the club that had broken the UK transfer record the most times and nearly all on Ferguson’s watch
I think Moyes is losing it already. The pressure is already getting to him.
“I was due to take him off after 60 minutes, but if I had people would have said ‘what are you doing?’ We were chasing the game and needed to get a goal back,”
Not subbing RVP because of the fans is just madness!Posted 4 years ago
It’s also given us a fascinating insight into what it’s like to be a Scouser for the last 30 years. The unrealistic expectations, and toxic bitterness at the wrong end of the M62.
Mind you, we’ve yet to start endlessly banging on about how good we used to be, then hailing some clueless, tactical-throwback, has-been as a savior and giving him a blank cheque to sign Geordie donkeys for absolutely ridiculous sums of money. There’s time yet though. 😀Posted 4 years ago
Binners = not a real football fan, are you from Norway or Malaysia like many other so called Man U fans?
Anyone who knows football will know that it’s not 30 years since Liverpool won the league
Actually Man U used the Liverpool model of buy the single best player available per year. The difference is that at Liverpool they went in the reserves fir a year and that Man U just bought the best 2 or 3 but had to play them
Btw: I’m not a rival fan. I support Stockport County so I can see thru all this bitterness and poorly informed crapPosted 4 years ago
donkeys for absolutely ridiculous sums of money
Now now binners, that just makes you sound bitter.
Eric Djemba Djemba
Alex made plenty of poor signings!
Fellaini £27.5 million
Hopefully Moyes will continue signing bargains like that.Posted 4 years ago
I know that I’m meant to be bitter and moaning, and all that (apologies if I’m not) but I think this is shaping up to be the best premiership season ever. It’s not just us who are suffering unexpected losses. Chelski losing to Stoke yesterday, Liverpool getting thumped by hull, city not being able to buy a win away from home… It’s all good. Teams that are meant to be whipping boys are playing great football. Look at Southampton. They’re a joy to watch. Did you see Osvaldo’s goal yesterday? 😯
It’s wide open this season.
Despite not coming from Norway, or surrey I am still a man yoo fan, but firstly I’m a footie fan. Have been since I was a kid. And so far, this season has been fantastic! You’d be a brave man to put your house on predicting the top four. And that can only be a good thing
Again…. Apologies for not bleating enough 😉Posted 4 years agoloddrikMember
I wonder if Ron Atkinson fancies another stab at it…Posted 4 years ago
I think that people (wishfully) predicting the demise of United, probably missed us absolutely dismantling Leverkusen last week. You may want to give it a viewing.
Wasn’t itPosted 4 years ago
stevie GLiverpool who flukedwon the champions league, while finishing nowhere in the premiership 😉grumMember
I saw that David Moyes had apparently said he would try and ‘make it difficult’ for Newcastle. That’s the stunning level of ambition he has for Man U.
Binners – so much of a fluke that there were in the final again two years later, and the semi-final the year after that? 😉Posted 4 years agoRichPennyMember
I agree with Binners in that it is shaping up to be a very interesting season, with the hope that Arsenal go on the wane for a few months. You want it going into the final 5 games with a handful of points separating the top 6. Not that likely, but pleasing for the neutral.
When was the last the champions were a genuine surprise, Blackburn?Posted 4 years ago
I think arsenal could drop points this afternoon. When Everton beat united midweek, everyone was saying its baca use Utd were poor. Well… Yes, by usual standards. But Everton are a bloody good squad! And they’re playing a much more attacking game under Martinez, while still looking tight at the back. I don’t think you can just assume that arsenal are going to bag another 3 points this afternoon. Far from it! Another ‘top 4’ club could be about to have their arse handed to them by apparently ‘lower’ opposition
Either way, it’ll doubtless be another good matchPosted 4 years agoJunkyardMember
Moyes looks out his depth sadly but will be given time
the quality of the players at his disposal is not that great tbh
His tactics are too conservative and he seems incapable of going for it or playing attacking football
Will do well to make CL this season tbh
As for the rest I prefer to support a team than hate/dislike goad/schadenfreude others. The bitterness /hatred/ tribalism that goes with so many football fans shame humanity never mind football.
Its a great game lets just enjoy it
We were never going to be the best team for ever and ever
Good to see arseanl doing well as everyone admires Wengers philosophyPosted 4 years ago
I guess youngsters and Johnny Come Latelys like binners (since he moved up from Surrey) just don’t remember what a crap start Ferguson had and that Utd were once a mid-table team too. Of all sets of fans, Utd’s should know that they may have to be patient for a season or two. Some of them are only realising now what an extraordinary job Ferguson had done for the last few seasons with some donkeys in the middle of the park. Moyes’ greatest danger is that he may lose the dressing room – Rooney is only a falling-out away from leaving. It’s clear that he and Moyes have a strained relationship. And this season, they’d be screwed without him.
I think they’ll make top four and that they’ll finish above Liverpool, who (IMO) are over-achieving at second place.Posted 4 years agoJunkyardMember
Indeed our entire midfield , carrick aside, is inferior to all the other serious challengers and our best four is inferior to Arsenals worst 4.
DD i though Rooney liked him now tbh and his new role in the team – I have no real inside knowledge and dont follow it that much tbh – not since we lost our beautiful show pony Ronaldo 😉 but its true actually 😳
Ferdinand has complained about when the team is selected so he may well be in danger of losing some elements of the dressing room
i think changing all the coaching staff, the MD and the manager all in one season was foolish as well. The first of these being a serious mistake on Moyes partPosted 4 years ago
Phil Neville FFS he is untested and has no real experience and now he coaches the champions.
Pool look good IMHO Suarez alone looks like he could get them into the CL but the real question is whether he will stay.teamhurtmoreMember
On paper, Man U have not been the best side in the league for a while IMO and last year I do not think they even played that well. Tells you something about Sir AF or some other hidden gem given their achievements nonetheless. The fact that results have slipped now, support the former. But, like AF, Moyes should be given time to establish himself.
As a neutral, this season is more fun to watch with more contenders and some strange unexpected results.Posted 4 years agoallthepiesMemberjunkyard wrote:

After the Hull game I though they were reverting back to type but the West Ham win stopped that in its tracks. Hopefully the Gerrard injury is a minor one.Posted 4 years ago
Actually Bravisimo I remember when Liverpool won everything, and we won nowt. which does tend to raise a wry smile when listening to bitter scousers whinging about United (or city, or chelski….) ‘buying titles’.
Good result for Everton there. I had a feeling they’d get something today. Great game. Perhaps that may lend some perspective to people going on about the ‘crisis’ at OT. I doubt it though.Posted 4 years agoCletusMember
hailing some clueless, tactical-throwback, has-been as a savior and giving him a blank cheque to sign Geordie donkeys for absolutely ridiculous sums of money.
And buy probably the best player in the league at the same time for £23M! – lots of managers have spent worse.
I was expecting Manyoo’s pool of experienced players to carry them through to a top 4 place this year but they seem more interested in moaning than getting behind Gollum. Maybe he can bring some decent players in in January but I expect that he will spend most of the window chasing embarressingly after Baines and will then panic and sign some dodgy no mark.
The next two weeks are going to be interesting. If City and Chelsea both beat Arsenal then I think they are going to fight it out for the title. My money remains on City as, bar Liverpool who will not last the pace, they are the only team in the top six with a decent strike force.Posted 4 years ago
O! M!! G!!! I agree with Bravisimo about something. I don’t rate Fellaini at all. Not as a holding midfielder, which is what we need. He looks lost at OT.
Martinez is a quality manager though. He won the FA cup at Wigan FFS (let’s gloss over the relegation). He’s always built great attacking teams, that were a bit dubious at the back. Perhaps he just never had a decent defence to work with, or the resources to build one. He’s got one at Everton! Which Moyes built, lest we forget.
He’s got a squad now that’s not much different from last year, but who aren’t phased by anyone! And they’re playing good football. They ‘re great to wstchPosted 4 years agojimmySubscriber
As an Everton fan, i thought I’d lose interest once Moyes left and had more interest in ManUtd at the beginning of the season. That didn’t last for long. I watched the match in the pub this afternoon which never normally happens – high energy non stop stuff, great to watch. Champo’s league at the first attempt? I feel for Moyes, but maybe is out of his depth.Posted 4 years agoMSPSubscriber
It is funny that so many Utd fans that made such a big deal of them having a tradition of giving managers time over the summer, are now calling Moyles clueless and for him to go. And calling it a championship winning team, blaming Moyles for the downfall, when it was a miracle fergie won it last year with that team.
I don’t think they will get any players in the january transfer window capable of making an impact, which players of the calibre they need are going to make a switch in the run up to a world cup. In fact Everton and Southampton are perhaps the teams who could pull in a decent loan signing, players who want to get to the world cup but aren’t getting playing time might fancy showing what they can do at those teams.
Still a lot to play for though.
Chelsea don’t seem to be united behind Mourinho this time round, I think he singled out Mata to stamp his authority on the team, but it’s backfired.
City look good when it’s working, but don’t seem to have the drive and energy required, they just seem to think they are too good to lose. They could start to click and really put a run together, but they just look to be lacking the right attitude.
Liverpool are playing with confidence at the moment, but are very dependent on a few players, especially the front line, and probably don’t have the depth to keep up the challenge through the whole season.
Arsenal look the most convincing so far, and doubts about the strike force are perhaps over stated, but other main contenders have several better strikers than any of Arsenals. Still I hate to agree with Robbie Savage, but I think he is right in saying if anyone finishes above them at the end of the season, they will be the winners.Posted 4 years ago
