Re: Why you should call us by our correct name.

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.
Yeah but the point he can't understand Rob is that is that you are just as "good" a United fan as he is, he thinks loyalty is going to every game, and justifies it by positng rhetoric, what he fails to to grasp is that it would be lot easier and cheaper for you to follow an American team than it is for you to follow United.
The snide remark about Asian fans is totally unjustified and just shows ignorance, he should take a look at Siti's blog, just to see how committed some of our Asian fans are.

i would also like to see jcl and "his mates" go up to some of the legendary asian fans who went to old trafford in the 1960,s and spew his anti -asian shite

would be 3 balls on the pitch

OK guys. I hope that jcl has finally got the message. This could rage on and on and go round in circles for ever. As I posted on page 7, can this be dropped now please?

On topic.

http://www.soccernet.com their EPL minute on the flash video player has a title:

Man "U" gets by Arsenal.

........

Also Fox Sports Latin America And Sky Latin America call us Man "U" at every possible opportunity...


Seems like that war is lost at least on the larger scale..

Everywhere in Canada that is what they are referred to.

It makes me cringe, but at the end of the day what can you do?

Even the live match scoreboards have us as - MAN U - or -MNU ... how is the layman supposed to understand?

It's a losing fight.

dont be so daft

important is that united fans dont use the name and understand why

what rival fans say is of no consequence - they are going to insult united because they are jealous of us

one thing i can say is that no rival fan of my age would ever say man u to me unless he was planning a hospital holiday . they all know the score and why and would always say united

I don't think thats what she's saying. She's saying what others have said before, many people will have grown up seeing the media refer to United as Man U, and will naturally use that shorthand.

It's not their fault if thats all they've ever known.
