I'm a bit tired of all the negativity. Actually, I am VERY tired of all the negativity.

It is literally tiring to read all the moans and groans. Fergie this, Fergie that.
Maybe he got it totally wrong and history will show that he made some glaring errors or just maybe Manchester United can become Premier League Champions AND the winners of the Uefa Champions League.


How about showing your support for Sir Alex Ferguson and the team that brings out so many emotions in you?
It's time to stop the negativity and bad vibes on this and other sites.

WE MUST START THINKING AND WISHING THE BEST FOR MANCHESTER UNITED

I really disliked the thread about worst-case scenarios and think it is high time that posters do either, or even both, of the following:

a) Show your support for Manchester United by wishing the team well for the remainder of the season

b) Post your best case scenario for Manchester United from now till the end of the season.


It's important that you don't just write something and think it's BS in the back of your mind.
Really mean what you post and picture your best case scenario happening in your mind!

My best case scenario for Manchester United is for Sir Alex Ferguson to play the best team and the best tactics that will result in a win against Barcelona while playing beautiful football. I hope some neat passing sets Rooney down the left and he squares the ball to Ronaldo who tucks in the back of the net and the crowd at Old Trafford errupts in celebration.

Replays will then show that Ronaldo scored with the outside of his left knee - the one of the few body parts he hasn't scored with.

Man Utd then go on to win against West Ham and Wigan, thereby winning their 17th top-flight title. (Fergie might have to call Curbs and Brucey to redeem some old favours).

Mancheser United then play an amazing Champions League final against Chelsea or Liverpool (doesn't matter) and secure a memorable victory in an all-English final that will put the names of the current Man Utd stars in the history books. A beautiful cross from Owen Hargreaves is met by a diving header from Carlos Tevez that sends his hair band flying. The header misses the target, but Anderson is on-hand to score his only goal of the season, but probably the most important of his career.

I also hope that all of this will be achieved without any injuries and in a manner that can leave no doubt that Manchester United are the best team in the Europe.


Manchester United are the best team in the premier league and the champions league and deserve to be double champions.

GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED!!

Know what you mean and your concern, mate, and your noble intention. Good reminder to all too. :)

It is good that we CHOOSE to be positive and optimistic. Nothing wrong with it. Perfectly normal and to be encouraged at all times.

But we also have to call a spade spade. We can't just sadly lie or 'psycho' ourselves if a performance is indeed poor or negative or showing little desire to win or contradict what we always boast about the "attractive brand of attacking football". Or sweep everything under the carpet. Or brush everything away. Or there is always the next game (conveniently). Or worst, blame the referee and luck. Let's self-examine the internal factors first instead of looking for some scapegoats to take the blame squarely (eg like poor Nani in the Chelski game - do we really think it was Nani who threw the game away for us or was it more like our not-enough conviction and/or containing approach thereafter our equaliser?) or some other external factors. Let's also face up to facts.

Fans moaning, groaning, criticising, lamenting etc do not necessarily mean that they are not true fans or they don't love their club. Just that they feel PAIN and ANGUISH too and are HONEST about their TRUE feelings and are PASSIONATE. Even if we love our kids wholeheartedly, we can't always say we are proud of whatever they do. But one thing never changes is that the LOVE never changes.

Besides, letting off some steam is more healthy than bottling it all up and venting it on some innocent party, especially someone dear in your life. [Ok, some exaggeration perhaps for most of us. Lol.]

Of course, after all the negative sentiments displayed, we still always look forward to the next game, the next season with hope and anticipation; as usual. That is only natural for any fan who loves their club faithfully.

But moanings etc will resurface undoubtedly yet again...

Part and parcel of supporting a club faithfully, wholeheartedly and............... truthfully.

There's bound to be some negativity following a defeat but I agree that now is not the time to wallow in self-pity and point the finger of blame.

We are 4 games away from glory. Imagine - Manchester United English and European Champions!

How good would that be?! Believe my friends. We are close to achieving greatness and you must do anything you can to help.

If you attend the games then make as much noise as possible. If you're sat at home watching on TV then will the ball into the goal. When you are asleep dream of greatness and it just might come true!

I definitely agree that we feel the pain and are entitled to vent and complain. It's just been a bit too much lately. Not only on this site, but on other sites too. I would never say someone is not a true fan for having a moan or letting out some steam, but I just wanted to reassure myself that people are still hoping the best for Man Utd.

It's alright to discuss, debate, vent and complain, but after that we all have to get back to supporting and hoping the best for Manchester United. I'm concerned that sometimes people wish bad things in order to be right. ....... so they can say "See, I was right about Fergie losing it.... or something to that effect. So we have to be true fans here. We have to hope for sunshine after the rain. Not more rain.

Tomorrow the rain falls on the boys from Spain! hur, hur ....

UNITED COMPLETE DOUBLE AFTER AMAZING COMEBACK
By Scott Lawless, May 22.

Last night, Manchester United made the mother of all comebacks in Moscow as Liverpool surrendered a 3-goal lead.

Dirk Kuyt gave Liverpool a first minute lead when he lashed on to Xabi Alonso's superb cross and fired past Van der Saar.

Things went from bad to worse for United when Fernando Torres was slotted home after a through ball by Steven Gerrard and slotted home on 26 minutes.

Liverpool supporters, who were in ecstatic mood had more of a reason to celebrate as Steven Gerrard scored a 25 yard stunner just before half time to leave United with seemingly no chance.

However, on 63 minutes Ryan Giggs ran by 4 defenders and crossed to the back post and and Cristiano Ronaldo headed it in to give United hope.

United dominated possesion and came close when Paul Scholes hit the post but on 80 minutes Wayne Rooney got in one on one with Reina and clipped the ball over him and into the net.

Steven Gerrard was sent off for a two-footed lunge on Wes Brown who made way for Gary Neville on 84 minutes, only playing his second game all season.

Just as Liverpool looked to celebrate their victory Anderson picked the ball up in his own half, ran 50 yards beating 6 Liverpool players, rounding the keeper and slotting home to make it 3-3 with 90 minutes played.

A truly amazing comeback from Man United but more was to come. Ryan Giggs whipped in a corner on 93 minutes and was cleared by Sami Hyppia but Gary Neville unleashed an unstoppable volley from 25 yards out past Jose Reina into the top corner.

A truly amazing night in Moscow, one of the greatest games ever seen and one that Man United fans will never forget and a game that Liverpool fans will want to forget.

Com'on lads... The most important thing here is that we are still in it... I would agree with Versa... Watching the game against Chelsea at Singapore home base... I came across so many fairweather fans who claim to support United. Especially during half time... That place almost entered the doomsday when we are like 1 nil down. I hea people saying "we don't have the mood to cheer???" No offence, but what is this? I guess the wrong attitude on true Devil's supporter or we only sing/cheer when we are winning?

This is the time that we need to stand behind the team... Just like early in this season, we have already come so far, United had proven these people wrong. I can't find another club with such a fighting spirit. Never write United off...

So in last... Support on the love that we accumulated over the years for the RED DEVILS not for the winning ways... Although many will find that there's nothing wrong but hopefully we can still cheer even if we lose cause we are always United...

We shall prevail...

YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

That's what I'm talking about! I'm smiling a big smile, mate.

That would be some final, indeed.

The worst case scenario thread was just a joke mate chill out.

You don;t think, I know that it was a joke? Of course, I know it's a joke.

The problem is that the universe cannot differntiate between a thought that is just a joke or a thought that is serious. So if a lot of people are thinking about a worst case scenario, all these people are giving those thoughts negative energy.

Look at that worst case scenario thread and tell me what good has happened to Man Utd since? :rolleyes:

Also, how many people were so quick to respond to that "negative" thread with enthusiasm. Now compare that to this thread.

Whether you accept it or not, football fans are more willing to express negativity then positivity and i wished it were the ther way around.

I know how I sound and it's fine to think whatever you want about me, but in my life and in my career the power of positive thought and prayer have led me to achieve more than I should have or could have imagined.

So why not apply it to Manchester United? It's not going to cost anybody anything. Just support the team, say, write and think positive thoughts for that team and see what happens.

:eek: I often do before a game that I am watching. Not every time God agree. :)

Btw, think most of the 'moaners' are not predicting doom and gloom for United. What they are 'moaning' about are just expressing their honest thoughts of what happened, what may or could have happened otherwise and displaying the necessary sentiments accompanying it. Perfectly normal, unless they seriously think ill of United in the next immediate match as if there is no need to turn up for but to accept a sour fate.

agreed! too many negative waves on here! i personally think we are in a good position, why people are worried about westham and wigan i dont know, and as for barca, they are not playing consistently well, i think they will fold at oldtrafford and united will cruise to a 2-0 win.


Edit: By Carly: Huge quote ... but not necessary !
It just makes it harder to read the page - we have
to scroll down non-stop ! So I got rid of it for you ...
still looks ok ;)

"I know that you support manchester united. All of us do ! Thats why we are here . I must say even i don like the negativity but you shud also look at the problems we are facing. We do have a mini-crisis.... " Futbol

The negativity you are seeing in posts all over the site is simply a reflection of what we are seeing on the pitch. In another thread, a poster mentioned (apology for not attributing) the body language of the players, frequent giveaways and the lack of accurate and crisp passing which has been our hallmark for most of this season. What has worried me most of all is that we have been dominated and outplayed for long stretches beginning with l'arse game. That had not happened all season (perhaps the cideh game). That, my friends, is a crisis.

We all support United, but some of us are a little worried that the potential greatness of this campaign may be slipping away.

Could we be in a worse situation? - absolutely. Can it be rectified? - definitely.

But we have to start showing it on the pitch. Now!

All I want us to win ALL remaining games left in this season and to do the double and to play good fluent football which we are very capable of playing...I also want our first and strongest 11 to be fit at all times till the end of the season and I also hope we get no fresh injuries..I also want Ronaldo to get 40 goals at least and for both Rooney and Tevez to have at least 20...I also want Anderson to score a cracking long shot and to have at least 1 goal this season :)
