Re: Why be a real sport's fan when you can just...
As a Man Utd fan I've had to put up with the 'glory hunter' teasing for most of my adult life, but the truth is I first became aware of football and was put onto United by my dad in the mid to late 80s, when we were fucking atrocious. It was a good five or six years later that we finally got really good again and then mostly dominated since.
It would have been easy to have supported a Liverpool, Arsenal or even Everton back then, as most of the kids in my school did. There was only one other United fan in my school year when I was proper young, and he was covered in ecthyma.
