    Anyway, it doesn't matter if people glory hunt or whatever. Let them glory hunt, why does it hurt people so much?! Besides, they can support any team they want.

    LB: Dehu
    RW: Luis Enrique
    CM: Cocu
    CM: I forget
    LW: Marc Overmars
    ST: Rivaldo
    CF: Kluivert

    You also had a young Pepe Reina, Arteta, Simao, Xavi and Puyol in that team along with Ronald de Boer, Litmanen, Reiziger, Zenden.
    A pretty awesome team!! Plus, Rivaldo was the best player in the world at the time!
    Sounds more like the Dutch national team lol

    I don't need too justify why I support Man United.. If people wan't too support there local team then well done, good for them.

    I also loved Ole Gunnar Shaz, quality player! Was always one of my faves too

    Apparently Sahin has picked Liverpool over Arsenal because Arsenal wanted a permanent deal and Sahin only wants too go out on loan.. I'm surprised Dortmund didn't take him back on loan or another foriegn team, quality player just struggled with injurys and getting game tiem last season.

    I know you was dude! Well you was defending that not supporting your local team is not a crime more then anything.

    Totally no need though man, like I said.. if people wan't too support there local team then awesome if not.. then that's kind of why the bigger teams make themselves global, so they can attact fans from around the world.

    Word!! This is one of my pet peeves. The amount of people you see (kids mainly) in the BORO wearing Man United, Chelsea and more recently Man City shirts really makes my blood boil. OK, I'll admit BORO are shit, but you suffer the hard times and relish the good. Also it's about local identity. How anyone can claim allegience to another town/city above their own is beyond me??

    I saw Henry play as a kid and loved everything that guy did, yes maybe then i glory hunted but i was a lil kid, i didnt give a shit, arsenal still became my team. Just like I'm sure ALOT of Man UTD fans glory hunted because as a young kid you see a team always winning but as you grow up that team becomes your love so they're UTD fans forever.

    No real football fan would ever change supporting team, I mean you can lie to your self and support another team but in your heart you now when you're watching you want your original team to score.
    While I do see your point, I still think you should support your local team regardless. When I first got into Football I was a around 9/10. This was around the time the Premier League had just started. The end of it's very first season, as you probably know, it was Man United who took that first title. And as a naive little kid I jumped on that bandwagon. And I did follow them for a while. But I realised the error of my ways and became a BORO fan, for reasons which I stated in the above post.
