Re: Friendlies & Euro 2012 Qualifiers Discussion Thread

I don't see why some people get so wound up about so-called ''gloryhunters''.
My Dad got me supporting Man United as early as possible and my two brothers as well. My Dad was born late in the late 50's so he was probably 9 or 10 when United won the European Cup, was he a glory-hunter? Dunno, probably.
Maybe he supported them because they had a few Irish on the books back then.
I don't really care why he followed them but I'm glad he got me into supporting United as early as possible.
Also, I don't care how many hundreds of miles I am from Old Trafford, I consider myself just as good a supporter as someone who lives 10 minutes away from OT.

(Thinking back, my Dad probably had to put up with some unbearable banter in the 70's and 80's )

Re: Friendlies & Euro 2012 Qualifiers Discussion Thread

The whole gloryhunter argument is a load of bollox. I support Chelsea, why? I saw Zola's chelsea play Liverpool in the Fa Cup, I think the score was 4-2, that's the first big game I remember distinctly. Dunno if I even remember the year, but it was a really good game and from then on I decided to support Chelsea. I dunno if it makes me a gloryhunter (would I have supported them if they'd lost? who knows) but I really don't care.

Really? I'm surprised that more don't care, I fucking love to see Ireland do well. Was gutted we didn't win last night, Slovakia are fucking average and missing the penalty was a turning point.

We need Duff back ASAP, McGeady's a fucking waster, and Robbie Keane needs to move on from Spurs, he looked awful (again) last night, completely lacking sharpness in front of goal, although he's been past it for a while.

Still n o reason we won't get second. We'll probably struggle against macedonia but get 4 points, beat andorra and armenia, lost to Russia and maybe beat the Slovak's at home. I think that could get us through. It's not like there's a lot of quality in the group (apart from the Russians). Should have won though, yeah.

You don't actually believe that do you? I don't have so much of a problem with people choosing to be a fan of whoever. That's their choice.

There is a difference though between being a 'fan' and a 'supporter'. Being a supporter means you go and support the team. You might be as good a supporter as someone who lives 10 minutes away from Old Trafford but doesn't go to the games. I know you're not in exactly the best place to trump that, but that comment was laughable.

I personally don't mind United fans for example who live outside of Manchester, and I'd say about 95% of them here are in that bracket but they know what they're talking about. I include you in that too, but there's such a big difference being a fan of a club and supporting one.

I think what gets some people is when you get people who aren't proper fans and just brag about their team, and because there are a lot of United fans across the country, they stick out. Every club has them, but I don't think there's any on here to be honest.

But thats the thing, I said I consider myself as good a supporter. I'm not too bothered about what bracket other people put me in, be it supporter, fan, fair-weather fan, glory-hunter. That stuff doesn't bother me.
Some people probably think ''he's just saying that, glory-hunter like the rest of 'em'' but thats they're choice and all that.

(I would like to get to a game though )

You want to go around preaching as if you're God and as if you're word is the ultimate. Who are you? You don't know shit. So stop acting as if you do.

Away fans always chant (to Chelsea), "where were you when you was shit?!". Well I got into football around 1997. I supported Chelsea in 1997. And let me tell you something, we weren't shit back then. I didn't live in London back then and I missed days when we were relegated to Division 2. Does that make me any less of a fan? Does it fuck.

You always think that rival fans are the worst fans of football, but that is obviously not the case. The worst fans in football are the ones like you dR1. The ones who go around walking tall and sprouting bullshit like they know every detail. Quite frankly, you're nothing but a joke.

And when I made my post about Lampard and Terry not being involved, I was not saying England would have won with them, I was just pointing out that England aren't any better without them.

And Darren Bent didn't play cause he was injured, Renegade. He was tipped to start before the injury happened.


I can't believe a Chelsea fan of all people got mad this time. Chelsea fans are usually good people, we should be teaming up to be the heels of this forum tbh bro. I don't need to know peoples histories to know that 90% of fans away from a teams town are bandwagon fans, come on son, use common sense.

I just don't agree with that statistic. Is it logical to think that the percentage of a son supporting the team his father supports is higher that 75%? How can the son be a glory hunter, when he probably heard the name of the team, even before he knew what the sport is?

Yeah, of course they are glory hunters out there. But to come on this forum and label every member who does not live in the city/town where their team is based is not right.

Oh and Chelsea are faces now. So we can't team up and be heels I'm afraid.

Can someone just get a fucking shotgun and put England out of its misery? Maybe try setting a football team up again in about 10 to 15 years.
