Exactly. I was born in Manchester, but have lived down south for 20 years. Support your local club and stick to it. But it annoys me when other Manchester United fans who have only supported the club recently and come from places such as Middlesbrough have a go at me. Need I say more?

BOOED AND JEERED our most loyal player in Ryan Giggs when he needed support
It was the kick up the backside he needed, notice, how he played better after, he realised he wasn't beyond critism.

Good Good I'm starting to agree with nc

PS How do you figure Giggs as the most loyal player, what was criteria for his selection?

I just had another look at the thread; you had a go at the guy from Middlesboro first, and he defended himself. And he's been a fan since a kid.

Maybe I should support my local team? Of course, the first town I lived in, I was only in for 8 days - am I supposed to support whatever team is there? Or the next town I lived in? (I lived in about a dozen places, all over the world, until I was around 4). This nonsense about supporting your local team is just that, nonsense. Someone said you should support the team your dad supports; but what if he moved to another town, how do you chose?

Geography and biology are the two worst possible reasons for supporting a club. Love of the club, and a passion for what they stand for, are far greater reasons to support them.

I love Manchester, and missed it badly when I had to live down south, Geography is exactly why I support City. City put a lot effort in the local community, because local schools are important to the community. Just as most clubs do, put time and effort into local schools, hospitals, charities etc...

Manchester United & Manchester City have the word MANCHESTER in it for a reason

Geography is the reason, I'm proud of my local club

It's that sort of insular thinking that keeps "massive" clubs so small....

Keano blasted the fans for not singing, so all the abus jumped on the bandwagon. They're not exactly the bastion of originality.

I'm just giving you my reasons for why I went for MY local club, City are in my blood, I could hear the crowds from my house. I was taken along at a young age, why would I want to support another club :confused:

City are a big club, crowds, tradition, standing in the league, superb new stadium, big name players, not the same league as United, but who is?

That is absolute nonsense; it's NEVER been a new phenomenon. I remember the liverpool shirts all over when they were good.
I was 5 when I started supporting Man Utd which was about a day after I got into footy. My grandad, who played for Liverpool reserves prior to the war, was a lifelong Liverpool fan and desparately wanted me to follow them. All of my mates at school then and over the next few years supported Liverpool. I am 34 so Liverpool were winning everything and Utd had the odd FA Cup appearance. I could have easily chosen Liverpool over Utd or even leeds who were doing well but I didn't.

I could however, as someone pointed out, chosen Oldham, Roachdale or similar and admit there has to be some trophy related bias in chosing your team. My home team were Shrewsbury and I have seen them more than I have Utd. Twas a funny season indeed to have my clubs at the top and bottom of the league this year. I would have chosen Shrewsbury to stay up if I had the choice betwen the two but we have looked like going down for 4-5 seasons now so fingers crossed for a re-build.

I have also, in true Fever Pitch style, become obsessed with other teams regardless of their success over my years and spent many saturdays at the old Den when I lived in Detford.

So where are the transfer rumours, or is this thread all about people changing the team they support depending on trophies won?

Radio Five Live are reporting that Beckham will sign for Barcelona for £30m.... they are quoting a Mirror or Express article though...

BTW I'm not a ManU or even a football fan - just pop in here for the amusing petty bickering!

yeah it's in the "news of the screws" too, saying that there has been a verbal agreement. (Not that it means anything!)

They also say: Xabi Alonso from Real Sociedad as a replacement for £20m

Could help with Kluivert too.

Feel free to post rumours too because I fail to see what complaining about the thread content adds to the thread any more than a brief argument.

Now Roma are supposedly after Beckham (according to sportinglife.com)
