    Some of the comments in the match day thread and the general attitude by people on this forum is staggering.

    That match day thread today was an utter disgrace.

    Match day thread is pretty much always a disgrace.

    Matchday thread has been a joke a few years. I used to lurk when wasn't a member and the negativity was nauseating.

    Just ignore the match day thread. I stayed out of it and enjoyed the match a lot more.

    Match day thread is full of people who spend the 90 minutes focusing more on an internet forum than the thing they're here to actually talk about.

    Utter dross and best ignored.

    You're not wrong. I don't even know why these people bother watching something that causes them so much hate and anger.

    They understsand nothing about football. I'd just close the thing. It serves no purpose

    Vast majority of people on here don't know what support means.

    They're consumers, not fans.

    Think you can forgive some of the frustration in the Chelsea match day thread - I didn't think we had a pulse, let alone the energy to win.

    The match day thread isn't a fair reflection on the forum, to be fair.

    We were shite for the majority of today's game and by nature people will complain if they are typing while watching.

    It's the equivalent of being at the pub and mumbling to yourself "haway you halfwit" when somebody gives it away. That doesn't dictate passion, knowledge or support, does it?

    Said in the other thread that I avoided the match day thread. The game was far more enjoyable. It’s a shame as it was used to be quite insightful

    The same question every sane person that goes to the matchday thread should be asked. I'm weak too at times, but I know it's my fault when I click on it.

    Yeah, I might make a comment at half time (not today) but match threads are generally pointless beyond somewhere to let fans vent their frustrations while watching an internet stream.

    Yup. It’s literally comments made moment by moment. It’s hardly the place for wise thoughts.

    Yep. Generally it starts from the point of "we're terrible" and either a) gets worse or b) momentarily gets better when we score before reverting to default.

    I guess it's just anxious fans filling the tense gaps in play but still, bleurgh.

    Match day threads in a nutshell:

    Part 1: Moaning about the line up.

    Part 2: Moaning about hooball.

    Part 3: Moaning about sitting back.

    yeah, some of the player threads aren’t even much better. you can’t even compliment a player without getting jumped on or called a fanboi

    It really is, this was my go to place for so long but I just can't bring myself to participate in United forum these days. It's filled with so much negativity, you just need to visit Mourinho's thread before we scored and see how people were letting out their frustration.

    Worst part is I see few posters who turn up and participate in every thread if we play badly or lose matches but moment there is a spark or a positive performance, they'll disappear only to say non-sense like this is not the norm and rather focus on negatives. It's infuriating.

    Calling for us to lose by large margins so as to get the manager sacked,calling players names and verbally abusing them and wumming to get a reaction are all disgraceful indeed. However after playing negatively at home from the beginning and then conceding,you can't expect every fan to be happy about it. There will be moaning and justifiably so.

    The match day thread is a live update of what's going on in the game. If a player produces a bad moment it will be commented on. Same thing would happen watching it on the telly with your mates. Just don't say you don't get irrational while watching a football match OP. Not defending anything but these threads are as bad as that forum.

    Why/how are there so many idiots allowed to post here?

    I remember reading RedCafe years ago and the quality was superb.

    I plucked up the courage to join and couldn't believe how easy it is for so many people to get promoted.

    Does this site get more revenue the more people that join? Because if so, I can't really blame the owners of this place as money will service the servers.

    But I find myself spending far more time on the Utd subreddit these days. This place is getting worse by the week and it saddens me because the modmins here do an amazing job and seem like down to earth people.

    Match day thread is always like that.

    Just don't take it seriously if you go there.

    I only posted there before and after match and during half time.

    It's a discussion forum and we will more often than not be discussing the negatives. What do you want? Make thread after thread about the positives and how good everything is? That's pretty boring.

    And I love match day threads. It's one place where we can be emotional and say whatever the hell we want. I've sworn at our legends like Giggs and Scholes in matchday threads and in real life during a game. I am emotional and I like to express myself.

    On the plus side, we get to know the live update of matches in the perspective of the vocal fans who posted there, minute by minute.

    Agreed. Some people on here need to question if they even support the club.

    Every time we lose/draw the place goes mental. "Mourinho out." That is all i have been hearing since Newcastle.

    The player performance threads are by far the worst part of the forum. Because in some cases people actually consider their opinions and still post opinions which are simply bizarre or totally wrong.

    Fortunately we have some real supporters like @McGrathsipan to counteract all the misery.
