The old second division loved having us. Teams like Bristol coming to OT and 40,000 + crowds. They'd never seen anything like itWhen we were relegated we went down fighting, and changing, the fans were very much behind Docherty and the team. The second division season where we carried on rebuilding with youth and pace was a positive time and a favourite season for many.
Your entitled to your choice. Obviously I don't want to see us going down but I wouldn't class it as 'stupidity and stubborness' I would class it as supporting us through the good times and the tough times.No.
Sorry. I dont support stupidity and stubborness for chosing united way over actual surviving the epl.
If fergie got us relegated I'd still watch us, not when we're shooting our own foot and persist with ole
I'm not saying the act of supporting united as stupidity. But the act of ole at the wheel is.Your entitled to your choice. Obviously I don't want to see us going down but I wouldn't class it as 'stupidity and stubborness' I would class it as supporting us through the good times and the tough times.
When we got relegated under the time of the Doc it was before my time but father told me about it and how much it hurt but he stuck with us and we got promoted.
I started supporting United 25 years ago and was very lucky to see the amazing times under Sir Alex, now that we are not doing well if we were to get relegated I would still watch any game I could.
The championship will tear us a new one at this rate. Good luck amassing 110 pts with this squad.Of course, even with a double relegation. Just cannot get my head around not doing so no matter how disappointing it would be.
Smashing the championship with 110 points would actually be fun after the last few years. Almost like a reset.
Obviously don't want or think relegation is remotely possible though.
Plus if we get relegated this season, it'll due to the players not giving a feck. No way we could be relegated if they have a shred of passion for the club.Ok fair point.
Of course I would, it would actually be quite fun. If Ole’s still in charge we certainly wouldn’t piss the league, that’s for sure.
Despite pretty much everyone saying they'd still watch? And even if someone said they didn't it doesn't make them a shitty fan. If they don't wanna waste their time supporting under-performing millionaires thats their choiceThis thread just shows the amount of fair weather fans we have. We're a mess of a club right now but it's still my team and even if we're relegated I'd follow them as closely as I do now, if not more. Our club has been pillared by those parasites and I've no doubt that things will get worse before they get better.
Most likely scenario: in the second half, when it's clear we are heading towards relegation, they will fire Ole, bring somebody in, the players will put some effort into last several games and we will escape relegation by a point or so.Safe to say if Ole takes Manchester United down to the championship he will never get a job in football again let alone still be United manager.
