Like always you seem to hate on United for no reason at all. How can you not be bitter, if you're a United fan and the title slips away like it did here, during the final minutes. It's a normal reaction. What do you mean by United not being a Manchester club? 


do you support Man U?

I "support" them as in they are my favourite team but I am not a fanatic. And I do not really care about the geographical placements of the clubs. So, could you answer the question now?

like many United "fans" and "supporters" you know nothing of the local history, local rivalries and national rivalries.

Utd is in Trafford, in the city of Salford.  Why are United your favourite team?  I will never understand someone that supports a team outside of the area they come from let alone the country in which they live... weird...

I hate man U for very good reasons revolving around my entire life living in the area and supporting a different smaller club from the same area.


You will never understand someone that supports a team from outside of the area? Maybe people move? Why should it matter where they live?  If they support a team it doesn't make a difference as to where they live. I support Leeds and I live in London and I am a fanatic Leeds fan. Are u going to question my support because I don't live in Leeds?

You must either be from Leeds or studied there, can't imagine why anyone not from Leeds would support TWS.

My grandad lived in Leeds for about 30 years then moved to London, my dad obviously supports Leeds because my grandad does and now I support them. You would be surprised. There are many Leeds fans spread out across the country and I know quite a few in London.


Thats as good a reason to support a team as any tbh, once a team gets you you're hooked or in your case fooked.

So very disappointing and I'd like to echo Rol's words:
"Celebrating a team like Manchester City is just wrong."


this is just so so so weak.

Man U paid 60m for two players years ago (ferdinand and Rooney)... probably about 80m in todays money.  Utd bought the title many times spent big money on many players, as did Chelsea, as did Blackburn, as did many other teams.

My take on the whole "big-money" debate is this...

David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Nicky Butt... These players cemented Manchester United's dominance of the Premier League in the 90s. They were not the product of money, they were the product of good management and one of the most nurturing youth systems ever. Sure they've spent big in recent years, but that is only possible due to their earlier, self-made success.

Manchester city are missing that. Outside of Joe Hart, I can't think of one player still at Man City who has risen through the ranks.'They even gave away their home-grown star Stephen Ireland, once voted 'player of the year', just so they could spend £24m on another player. I think something valuable has been lost from the club when that happens.

Chelsea did exactly the same thing. The only remaining product of the pre-Abramovich era are John Terry and Frank Lampard. Surely the real feeling of victory is  missing from a club like that. It's like cheating in a video game; you'll win, but it wont feel the same.

Ye definitely. No matter how bad Leeds have been in recent years I have never stopped supporting them, infact my support has probably gone up since their decline. True fans support a team through the worst times. I've watched Leeds play in the champions league in my lifetime, and watched them away at gillingham in the league. What i dont understand is how people can defect and support another team.

Football is just which billionaire owner has more cash now. Nothing to do with the area the team is based in.

I can support England because the players are all English but City is a random assortment of expensive footballers like any other major team.

in four years, southhampton or so will be champion if sheik xyz from dubai wants to. horrible, what has football come to... same with chelsea, nobody on the planet did care about them...from one to the next year popular around the world just because they had hundred millions to throw away. those guys who only start to be fan of a club because of money are the biggest joke.

how great would it be to have a system where clubs only can spend a part of their revenue (of merchandise, spectators, price-money from championsleague and things like that) for players and not more than the whole revenue is lol...without that, some like the english league are only a joke.



Consider it on loan, we'll have it back next season lol.

Okay, but Salford is in the Greater Manchester area so I don't see a problem. I support them because when I was growing up they had some of the best and most prominent players in the world. I know a few things of their history, but obviously not all, because frankly I am not that much into football. I follow it for enjoyment, and United has provided me with the most enjoyment of the English clubs. 

It's not weird to support clubs from other countries when most of the teams in your own country suck big time. Why should I want to follow lesser football instead?


lol... I rest my case.



I'm not really here!

It's amazing United ran City so close for the title when probably only 2 or 3 united players would get in the city 11.

On a side note......

do you support a football team?  if so.. which?

No, I have had incandescent arguments with my dad over this forever. He supports Villa and wants me to.

Here is what I support:

http://pic5.duowan.com/sc2/1106/172836268615/172836281181.jpg

Because this guy went from nothing to the best on the planet at his discipline, and I've supported him from the start in doing so. And the money put into the sport isn't so high as to corrupt anyone.

My dad is also a pushy Villa fan.

I support Villa, but he wants me to go one further and ferociously hate Birmingham City FC. I just can't bring myself to do that, I'm indifferent to them. If they're successful, then I wont be angry at their victory; I would be happy for them if anything.

Besides, the window of my office faces their ground, St Andrews, and I have to look at that ugly mess all day. Perhaps if they're successful they can afford to tear it down and build a nice stadium in its place.

Because you have nothing of worth to say.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
