Cheap affordable football with one of the best supports in the country, a good laugh with people watching football in a relaxed and jubilant fashion rather than worrying about promotion not looking likely, exactly how it should be.


Never been a fan of other clubs, always been 'Big United' or now 'Little United' but I've usually had respect for a lot of other managers and therefore I've not exactly rooted against their teams, although I'd fall well short of actually 'liking' and having a proper interest in any other team, people like David Moyes, Alan Pardew (at Newcastle), Curbishley in his Charlton days, Martinez at Wigan etc. Good, respectful managers who've done excellent jobs on shoe-string budgets and generally come across as more respectful and humble than other personalities in football.

As for teams/fans I dislike/hate:

Man City. Should be obvious. Their fans are without doubt the worst to be subjected to when you're losing to them, whether they were the annoying obsessive twats back in the days when they were a mid-table club, constantly clinging onto the deluded belief that no-one in Manchester supports United, or that they were a people's club and took pride in not being a money spending monopoly like Chelsea or United (HA), or as they are now as the arrogant and annoying tits now suddenly abandoning all their past grievances at how United, Chelsea and others spent obscene amounts of money, taking pride in having a worldwide following when they used to chastise United, Liverpool, Chelsea and others for this etc. Words cannot do justice to them.

Leeds. Fuck 'em. I grudgingly respect their support and the fact they managed to get insane numbers in the League 1 days, but still the Leeds/Man Utd rivalry is well documented and I loathe the horrible bastards. Everything from constant paper aeroplanes at our games, vandalisings the toilets in OT with Munich abuse (particularly when Leeds Rhinos in the Rugby League play in the Grand Final at OT) to jeering during a minute's silence for Matt Busby shortly after his death. Tbf United fans are just as bad with the Istanbul banners and chants, so I have no mither with Leeds fans hating us, but still, fuck 'em.

Liverpool. Much like Leeds and City, horrible set of fans with their Munich abuse ensuring constant Munich/Hillsbrough chants dominate any fixture between both clubs. Attacking Alan Smith's ambulance after his leg break at their ground in 05, stanley knives slashing fans up and down the country in the 70s/80s and occasionaly 90s, obsessed with some FA conspiracy that they're always hard done by etc. Always good for a laugh, but christ when things actually do go their way only City are worse for having to stomach their jubliation. Oh and who can forget bottles/cups of piss/excrement being launched at us in numerous games at Anfield.

Stoke. Fans are absolutely obsessed with us and have been trying to make the annual Stoke/Utd matches at the Britannia stadium feel like something special every year when its not even on Utd fans' radar. Munich abuse to try and spite United fans, constant chants about them being a primarily local support despite averaging pitiful attendances in the Championship days and only getting close to sell out games when they got promoted etc etc. Pulis is generally an alright bloke from the little I follow of him, but their fans are just something else. You can say the same for Bolton, though with them its more a pocket of fans (about 500) in the far corner of the ground who have this hilarious obsession with United and City/Liverpool year on year.

Millwall. Not much needs to be said to anyone who's heard of them. Vile set of creatures and despite them being a throwback to the 80s in terms of suppport and atmosphere, a lot of their fans are just infinitely hateable. Constantly trying to bait Leeds, Cardiff and Livepool with respective tragedies in the hopes of sparking some violence. Hate them.
Unlike most on here you know your onions. Love and hate are strong words. No offence to anyone but you simply cannot love a club that you do not devote your life to.

Fans that truly love their club are those that have stood by them through thick and thin, followed them up and down the land and to foreign fields. I can't for the life of me understand why anyone would want to choose a club to support in another country or even another city or town that they have no links to or never even visit.

The biggest thrill for me being a football fan is the feeling i get on a Saturday or Sunday morning, getting up, putting your tunes on, getting ready to go out and meet your mates, have a few beers, a sing song, enjoy the banter. Even better if you are jumping on a train, going somewhere out of town for.an away. The uneasy feeling you get at places like Stoke, especially on a night game. Its all part of the buzz.

Freezing your nuts off on a cold January day and staying until the end even if your team is 3-0 down. Still having the gaul to sing a chant after a defeat. Saving all the spare cash you have just to go to Fulham or Wigan.

All the emotions, happiness, sadness, being a moody twat for two days after losing a big game. Embracing your friends and family after a big win, sharing the good times and the shit times with those very same people.

That us truly loving a club. I go most games and I hate it when i am not there. I feel like something is missing. The void has been filled somewhat with my son but I feel like its my duty to be there.

There is LIKING a team and then there is LOVING a team. Big contrast.

I'm sorry to break it to you, Mr. Slyy Blue, but you don't define what is love. You have no right to go and tell people what they feel or not. What you're able to do is what most supporter would love to do (going to every game). But not every supporter is able to do this. If you want to use that as a way to define your love, then fair do's, but because you do it, it doesn't make it is the only way.

What's not cool about you is that you come across as one of those very annoying elitest supporters. The "I'm a real fan, you're not" type. If there is one type of supporter I detest, it's that one.

United fans are the worst, but they will never admit it. Every Stoke clip on youtube is flooded with 13 year old Man utd fans thinking its the 80s chatting shit how "we never turn up" and all that bollocks. I haven't seen a group of Stokes "firm" since like 2001 against Birmingham. The obsession is with them.

Anyway...

Love- Stoke

Like- Barnet, Real Madrid, Crewe and Southampton(fm)

Hate- Arsenal, Man United and Port Vale

Love all the hate for us

Explain to me why you love Liverpool and like Everton?????

Glad you hate Man Utd though

Oh I'm not denying that, you'd have to be blind or just biased to be a United fan and try to defend some of the cretins in our support. I remember the FA Youth Cup (slowly becoming popular aways now with hardcore United fans) away game at Anfield in March 2011, was a cracking game with 600 United there and a good atmosphere, but 10 cunts at the back tried to start a hillsbrough song every 10 minutes and did an embarassing 'crush conga' down the stairs at halftime. Surprised they didn't get a twatting from within their own support with how pissed off most United fans were getting.

Also for the record, I've lived 50 minutes outside of Manchester the entire time I've supported Man Utd, and then FC Utd. To a degree I share your view about it being weird that certain people can claim to support one club, but then confess to be avid fans of maybe 8 other clubs, but being an out of towner I've always felt like Ian Brown says, 'its not where you're from, but where you're at'. I was brought up a United fan through family connections, although if circumstances were different I could easily have ended up a fan of another club. Since the day I've become a United supporter however, its always been about them and no-one else (and hell even my support for FC grew out of growing disillusion with how Man Utd had developed, if anything FC Utd are what I always wanted Man Utd to be, a callback to the club in the 70s and 80s if you will).

They play in the Northern Premier League Division, also known as the Evo-Stik League. Its the 7th Level of English football, so basically Premier League-Championship-League 1-League 2-Conference-Conference North-FCUM league.

They're made up primarily of Man Utd fans who left after the Glazer takeover, though you'd be naive to think it was solely the takeover that forced them out. Truth be told ever since the mid to late 90s with United winning regular premier leagues and eventually the champions league, the strength in the 'brand' (eurggggggggh) was growing and United slowly began raising prices and cashing in on their growing worldwide popularity. A lot of local and non-local (but longtime following) fans weren't blind to realising that prices were only going to increase, and that United prioritising family and corporate exec fans would slowly see the club lose their identity, for the sake of becoming a worldwide brand and making a shitload of money. Glazer borrowing nearly 600m to buy us and then lumping us with the debt was the straw that broke the camel's back. Everyone knew the fans would have to pay to reducing the debt, and prices shot up year after year (though they've finally frozen them the last 2 seasons) and more time was spent in merchandise and sponsorships to try and minimise the debt and continue to make a profit.

FCUM is against modern football as a whole, e.g Sky dictating where and when games are played, with little regard for supporters and the inconvinience that re-arranged travelling can impact upon them, prices rising year on year, the sweeping commercialism and corporate nature that has transcended the game: music after goals, attempts by the club to monopolise the support and create their own 'desired atmosphere' etc.

With FC though, its not about promotion and relegation, everyday we continue to exist and survive after being written off as being dead by Christmas of 2005 is an accomplishment in of itself. FC fans don't jeer the team off because we're mid table, or call for Karl Marginson to be sacked when we look to be a clear average team, its about supporting the team at all costs and just having fun at football, singing, getting drunk, banter etc. Instead of trying to psycho analyse and rely on statistics to justify a starting 11, FC fans just fucking have a laugh. We're not arsed that we'll never likely reach the premier league, or reach the champions league. There's more to football than what Sky would like us to believe, the amount of Championship clubs who's fans will sell out their entire history if they think they'll reach the premier league from it astound me: case in point Cardiff City abandoning their famous blue jersey for a red kit because their new investors believe it will become a strong brand and make them money they can spend on players. Its sickening how a club can basically have their history raped in a decision, and fans thinking playing Man Utd twice a season will all be worth it.

I have no issue with their style of play, it does always irk me when you get 'football purists' moaning about Stoke's tactics. Every team should play their own brand of football which represents their strengths as a team.

Their fans however are another story, the self-righteous ego of some of their support who brag about being primarily a local support, but quick to forget some of their downright embarassing attendances back in the Championship days compared to today have always made me laugh at them. Plus I hate the media hype about the Britannia atmosphere, Stoke are no different to most supports in that when they sing they're fucking loud as anything, but in between the songs there's long periods of silence which the media conviniently ignore. Its like how the media always talk about Anfield being a cauldron of noise....yet unless its United, possibly Chelsea, sometimes Everton and then a few big European games its as dead as any other ground when they play Fulham, West Brom or some other lower level team where the rivarly/hatred is non existant.

As I said above, some of our fans are absolute cretins and are a growing embarassment (hell its why I frequently attend FC games these days), I always wanted to remain a United away goer even when my displeasure for the way we were run and who we catered towards was at its worst, but the last couple of seasons the tits have infiltrated our away support after hearing all the buzz about United's away following being the best in the country, and our support has gradually gone downhill to the point where Carling Cup and FA Cup aways are far better these days in terms of demonstrating our support compared to a domestic away.

Stoke fans are equally as bad though, the amount of them who make it an issue of supporting your local team, yet never do I expect anyone from outside of Stoke to ever get hassled by Stoke fans about not being from Stoke, as well as the incessant preaching about their hometown support just make my pity some of them in your support. Not saying you are one of these folk, but idiots of this nature are frequent in every support.
