Michael, You have said that the rally against the term is being made by young people. Yet the authors of the post linked in the OP were watching United in the 50's and 60's.

Also, West Brom and Birmingham were some of the top sides in the 50's and 60's.

Right, after staying quiet for a while on this, I'm going to have my say.
Michael: The writers of the article refering to the use of 'Man U' were around in the 50's and 60's, at the time that it was meant to have first been heard. So perhaps some mind should be held to this. I wasn't around at that time but since first supporting United in the 1980's I have been aware that this isn't a term that United supporters should use. I didn't know why but it was always there. Then a few years ago, there was a poster as part of the United magazine that had 100 reasons to prove that you're a die-hard United fan. One of these reasons was that you never refer to the club as 'Man U'. It didn't explain why but it cemented the fact that there must be a reason to it.
What I'm very tempted to do is write to someone who I know will have a direct answer to this. Whether I would get a response or not, who knows. But if it would clear this up once and for all, then I'm willing to give it a try.

I also thought it was cheesy but I'm just pointing out that something that came out of the "official" United magazine used this as a point of information.

Point is JCL it's uneducated fans like you who puport to support the club but know little or nothing of it's history, and yes I refer to those muppets on Red whatever too, who just can't grasp the feeling that was poured out when that plane crashed,players then were ordinary men, they lived next door to the fans, losing them was like losing a son or father, but in todays overpriced, overpaid footballing world, why should we oldies expect a young upstart like you to respect our views.

And if this board is soo bad why do you keep coming here,is it because your rhetoric isn't tolerated elsewhere :whistle:

and why do we get geeky kids from asia saying to lads who follow united home and away with passion and fight. "dont call us man u" ffs

All that proves is that the geeky kids from Asia, are not as ignorant as you and the lads you know, and that they have bothered to listen to people like me and John, whereas you prefer to dish out insults and tell us we are lying, not the best way to become informed is it ?

Maybe if you bothered, Like I and John did, to sit down and talk to us oldies you would learn more, oh I fogot we lived through it so we obviously know nothing about it.

You know years ago people like you thought the world was flat.

I have heard pre-Munich United supporters use Man U. Before then it was not an insult.
And some still do it to this day.

But what jcl and a lot of other muppets fail to realize that it was used as an insult afterwards, and is still to this day.
Its the same with other words. I may not find the word nigger insulting. Hell I am just some white boy who likes calling people controversial names. But I do realize that people do find it insulting, and so not being a complete and utter muppet, I do not use that word.

Simple really, if some find it insulting, and they show good reason, as I believe they have, then shut the fornicate up about it and don't be such a prat.

Well put Rob, to carry on using it in a place when you have been asked not to is an insult in itself

A good example I think would be the word c-u-n-t. In England its not that bad of an insult, and half the time used as a term of endearment.
In America its one of the worst things you could say to a person.

So I use it here, and talking to people who know about it, I even use it on a Yank footie forum, cause most are clued up and get it.
But I would not use it anywhere else, nor would I tell them to get fornicate over it.

fornicate off.

A lot of us when immersing ourselves into a football culture pick up on most other things.
Mind you hardly any of the people I talk football with watches nascar, but most are clued up, there are a lot of many birth canals, f-u-c-k offs, t-w-a-t-s thrown about.
And the best thing hardly any of it is posing. Just people learning about something, accepting it for what it is, and in time, doing it themselves. When in Rome has a lot of truth to it.

Thats the point it's respecting the culture, and the culture of this board is that one expression is an insult to us, why oh why do people have to amke such an issue and not respect it ?

Well I am guessing its jcl's nature.
If he isn't arguing or moaning then he isn't posting.

Part, a large part it appears, of his mission on UL is to show all of us how clueless we are and how much this board is shit and not a true reflection of United's support, while he of course, is clued up and an uber red, unlike you old fogies who used to run with the Red Army.
He also knows more about the old United cause he reads Red Issue, and repeats everything he got on there.

The funniest bit is that he, and a few like him, would call me a plastic glory hunter, while Reds who have followed for decades, see me and the influx of fans as a good thing. Go figure. But the day I let some kids who wasn't even alive when I started following United get to me is the day I slash my wrists.
