The Truth About Manchester United Fans

The Truth About Manchester United Fans


A Vital Manchester City reader from down under sent us the following:

The following quote from the New Zealand Sun newspaper made me start thinking:

'While City draw large crowds of 'real' fans, good Manchester folk who know their football, a large percentage of United's support are prawn sandwich-munching corporate and bandwagon-jumping foreigners who wouldn't know one end of a corner kick from the other.'

So would this be the kind of entry requirement for membership of the Manchester United supporters Club?

APPLICATION FORM FOR MUFC SUPPORTERS CLUB

I wish to become a Manchester United supporter and I confirm that:

1) I was born nowhere near Manchester and am prepared to show no loyalty to teams located in my local area.

2) I confirm that I know absolutely nothing about football and will never seek to improve on my ignorance.

3) I am a pretentious glory seeker and have rejected supporting my local team on the grounds that they might not give me enough reflected kudos.

4) I am prepared to eat prawn sandwiches and totally reject meat pies, burger and chips and pints of beer on the grounds that these reflect the traits of true football fans from other clubs.

5) I will buy a replica shirt at least twice a year and appreciate the kindness of the club in regularly changing the design, of transferring Ronaldo and Tevez and of increasing prices in the Club shop, in the interests of us supporters.

6) I am only interested in winning and will sulk unreservedly if we do not win every game. Equally I will stop watching matches if we do not win regularly and will switch my allegiance to another team if they look more likely to win trophies.

7) I will never publicly admit that Sir Alex Ferguson may have Alzheimer`s disease, that the Glazers have no money and that the club is in huge debt and that our best days may well be over.

8) I am a total t**t.

Well... You this is absolutely nothing but a sad attempt at attention seeking. You tend to notice nobody else here runs articles trying to abuse and show other clubs down. I came here not to read the article (Which I know will be crap), but to get my point across that this ai'nt a great ploy. Just stirring up trouble.

Once you lot win a few trophies, you too will attract fans from other countries. So grow up, please.

Chill out will you. The above is tongue-in-cheek and merely for fun. Blimey, some people.

JT-daniel : I know you like the site but for goodness sake have a bit of a sense of humour. Nobody, that is apart from you takes it seriously and neither does the person that wrote the original news article in New Zealand. Are you helsea fans really so literal and miserable?

JT -daniel :Thanks for the comment. What's your read on the John Terry situation? I see him very much as Mr Chelsea and don't think he will move but maybe he wants wage parity with Frank Lampard and Ballack. I was surprised by Frank Lampard's comments which seemed to put some doubt on it but the trouble is that journalists give it whatever spin they like. I also see Sturridge had a good debut for you ... he has really good potential and I am not sure what went wrong behind the scenes at City because I don't put the move completely down to money. best regards

'While City draw large crowds of real fans' ya right , first of all you must know the definition of large crowds. You guys cant even fill your own stadium for every game. If you are to become a big cub, you can start by eliminating the empty seats that i see every game, Jokers.
