    Rosenborg is my local club. By far the best side in Norway. Some giants has fallen visiting them. Likes of Real, Milan, Dortmund and Mourinho got the sack after losing for them. Even knocked out Milan in the CL and went to the quarters. Would always support United if they played against each other. Maybe this year in the EL :)

    The season is only 14 games old and we’re already on our 3rd manager.

    No Kobe, No Life.

    Played for reading as a 9 year old and lived close by for 3 years. Reading were not a good side 20 years ago but they had jamie cureton. Don't follow them these days at all but did for a decade or so as they rose up leagues

    Toronto FC and I’d want united to win.

    I was a season ticket holder since the beginning up until 3 years ago. I was actually a horrible fan because at the business end of the Premier League season, if it was a match that had title implications for United, I’d stay home and watch that game instead of going to BMO Field to watch Toronto because the kickoff times would overlap on occasion.

    FC Copenhagen (Denmark)

    We actually played in the group stages of CL back in 2006.

    CPH won 1-0 at home. Somewhat lucky. I remember an offside goal being denied in the last minut.

    I was rooting for CPH mainly due to:
    - Its my local team
    - CPH needed the win more than United
    - CPH was the underdog
    - It was the first time CPH had qualified to the CL
    - A win for CPH would mean so much more than a win for United. Basically it was a somewhat forgettable match for United but a massive win for CPH.

    Closest local pro club are the SJ Earthquakes. Hate MLS. Strange affinity for Luton Town for no reason other than they missed out on the PL era by being relegated in the last season prior to Div 1 becoming the PL. Then a spectacular fall from grace and they became my FM project.

    It’s been a wild ride back to the Championship and hopefully the circle will be completed soon. Conference to PL in less than a decade *fingers crossed*

    Kalloni F.C. Unfortunately we've nosedived down the divisions (helped by some questionable Greek financial 'issues'). From playing the likes of Olympiakos and P.O.A.K etc to local league 4th division in a few short years.
    It's going to be a long road back.....

    Linfield is my local team. Im a full member and have been a season ticket holder for the last 24 seasons.

    Tonight Linfield made Irish League history by being the first team to get through to the 4th round.

    We did get to the QF of the European Cup in 1967 but that was only 3 rounds in.

    Proud night for Linfield and our reward is Qarabag(sp?) which is formidable opponents for us since we're a part time outfit.

    Incidently we do have some United connections. Dennis Voilet was a Linfield player at the tender age of 35. Trevor Anderson was our manager in the early 90s and Roy Carroll was our keeper for 3 seasons, last year being his last season.

    Halifax Wanderers FC...

    Founding member of the inaugural Canadian Premier League...Haven't missed a home match yet, and our fans are known to be the loudest in the league. We regularly sell out our 6200 stadium at Wanderers Grounds, which happens to be where Babe Ruth hit his first professional home run over a 100 years ago!

    Lots of Scottish and Irish ex-pats in the crowd, and they usually lead the chants! Though there are a quite a bit of Serbian/Croatian/Greek/Lebanese ancestry fans also...

    Love my melting pot city, but I'd be all for United crushing them if they ever played of course!

    COYW!

    Leyton Orient for me. Though it’s all too upsetting to talk about! I’d prefer United to beat them though.

    Raufoss Fotball in Norwegian OBOS League, one division below the elite division. Henning Berg had some engagement with the club 15-20 years ago. I would always want United to win because that’s where my heart truly lies and always has. It’s a religion...

    Two teams actually. Sheffield United, because it was my late wife's second team, and Luton Town because of my admiration for Eric Morecambe. Always would want MUFC to win. No exceptions.

    Dynamo Moscow.

    There were the times when this team was a good one (10 times league champion), but the last league was won like 43 years ago, I wasn’t born yet :)

    Currently, they fight against relegation or for mid table position for the most part. As such, there is no question Man Utd would have crushed them with any squad. And it’s a shame actually, because there were the times when the greatest goalkeeper Lev Yashin played for Dynamo (the only club he played for, obviously).

    If you remember Alex Buttner, there was a season he played for Dynamo after he didn’t make it at Man Utd. But he played even worse and was gone very quickly :)))

    They play in the Australian A-league.

    The season hasn't started yet. Let session they had their best season in a few years.

    The coach then resigned and 7 first team players finished their contracts.

    So this year Ufuk (seriously) our new manager has a massive challenge.

    I'd want United to win but the Phoenix to play well.

    It would be a massive mismatch

    I always watch Cambodia play at home, always a great crowd, but the football is appalling! I remember taking my father in law who'd come to visit us to watch Cambodia v Bangladesh, he enjoyed it but reckoned he'd seen higher quality Sunday league on the Downs in Bristol!

    I played both football and basketball with them, football as a kid and then basketball until I went to uni, kept going to watch bball games a lot of times, football on fewer occasion since the quality is really really crap.

    Now I love United a lot but if they play against my local team I would want my local team to win, they'll never play anyway.

    Tromsø IL, the club we just signed Isak Hansen-Aarøen from and sent Adrian Barlow on loan to. Hightlights have been the few times the club has qualified to the EL group stage, so I’ve seen TIL play against Roma, Spurs, Galatasaray, Anzhi (when they were good) and a few other clubs which was very fun. The club developed Morten Gamst Pedersen who I guess most have heard of and is currently playing for TIL now actually.

    Great result for Linfield. Good luck in the next round.
