    So, things are bad. Really bad. We are currently two points above relegation with no signs of improvement. If we get relegated, what will you do?

    I will not enjoy watching us play in the championship, but I believe I will still watch the few odd games. They don’t show championship games here in America, so to be honest, I will have to stream most of it. I will also protest and demand reshuffling of our club infrastructure.

    Yes.
    And annoyingly it’s this loyalty from fans which means Glazers will still stick around due to making money.
    I’m fairly sure a lot of United “fans,” (people who wear memorabilia) probably wouldn’t even know United have been relegated

    Attend? God no
    Watch? I honestly don't know, I think I'd probably give up football though thinking about it

    Definitely.

    As grim as the situation would be, a season (or more?! :nervous:) could be quite fun in a weird way :lol:

    Of course - be a blood rubbish supporter if you didn't. Besides, we might win a bit more in the championship

    Right answer. People forget that we are a football club and not a fashion statement.

    Yes. But I hope the Glazers sold the team if that happened

    Of course. Might actually be fun to watch us play against teams that are on our level too.

    I think it will be the same as when Juve went down. Fans will still stay.

    Well we'd probably win more in the championship hopefully, so yeah it would at least be fun to be reminded what that's like.

    I don't pray for relegation but ticket prices would drop so much that I could probably afford to go to games pretty consistently,

    Think it would work better as a fashion statement, supporting a championship club would be kind of hipster.

    We would be on tv every week. If Leeds stay down then it will be the biggest rivalry the second division would have seen for a long time.

    I've currently deluded/convinced myself into thinking that, if I live to see the day of United being successful again, the high of winning will be much better than the one before, because we've waddled through a fair bit of garbage as well. So yes, I'd watch it.

    If we get new owners, and a new CEO, i'd definitely watch. If it will be more of the same old, then I'd lose all hope.

    We're 2 points away from relegation and Liverpool is coming next. We're officially in a relegation fight now till things improve, whatever we like this or not. It's not even a joke anymore.

    If Ole stays there's a big chance we'll stay close to relegation zone for the majority of the season.

    I definitely. Otherwise there’s a good chance you’re a glory hunter. No offense.

    As infuriating as it is, I love the club through good times and the bad. Thanks to SAF I’ve never known much of the bad times :lol: :nervous:

    Yeah it's bad, but I predicted mid table at the start of the season. We're good enough to finish at least mid table, especially when the regulars are back. Talk of relegation is just wallowing in self pity.

    Of course. I'm curious how and when will this club get back on top. If the very worst happened (Championship) I'd be right there in hell with Utd.

    Could give two shits in hell about the rest of the PL clubs, with the possible exception of Arsenal (wouldn't mind them winning Premiers with attractive-offensive football).

    Of course, we'll probably lose a few snobby fans though that will be crying because the type of options for player names on the back of their shirts will be Charlie Austin or Dwight Gayle.

    We'd storm our way back up.

    But it's ridiculous to talk of going down. Look at the players we have out!

    Yeah, why not.

    Did the last time it happened.

    If you take the bad times, the good times are all the better.
