I am law wrote:I don't hate Man U, in the same way as I dislike Liverpool, Chelsea or the North London clubs, but there is something about why we are supporters that comes to the surface when they visit The Boleyn.
It may be tin hat time to say this, given the arse-ache some people get from the prawn sarnie parts of their support, but I actually rate the travelling Man U fans as some of the loyalest and wittiest around.
There is nothing more chastening than hearing that song '2 (or whatever) nil in your cup final'.
So, I enjoy their coming to play us. And, when we beat them, I enjoy it even more. The games against them are a reminder of what it used to be like.

But I always look forward to their visit because they are the best team in the country, maybe the World so to see us beat them regulary brings me great amounts of joy!
both of these are spot on in my book
can only admire what manchester united as a football club do, they play the game how we would love to see it played they are one of the best users of the youth set up at the club, something we do, they win everything by playing the way they want to play not stopping the other team they go out to win every game by scoring more than the opposition,
i look forward to these games more than any other, its the biggest test in domestic football, every club sees the manchester united home game like this and manchester united have a derby type game every week no other club has that but to have our club picked out by fergie of all the clubs he plays as the ones who he notices hate him must show some respect to us, and credit to us as a club that we can unhinge his team a bit, its our duty as supporters of our club to get our team going and do as much as possible to affect them, for some reason against fergies lot our crowd come together as one and give it everything, because we are up againsty the best both on the pitch and there away support off it, i think we should be very proud of our club for getting that much recognition
