What a decade to support United, getting the special everywhere with your mates, paying at the gate, Doc's Red Army in full flow, '74 in division two! You couldn't beat it.

Anyone old lads on here got any stories to share about the seventies, any Weaste/Salford lads also, would love to talk to some of the older heads.

Don't think there's anyone on here who will
remember the 70s and i dont think i've seen
any members from Wease or Salford.

If i find any i'll let you know.

Was born in 78 so unfortunately before my time. But when I look at games from that era on DVD. I see a United side that was at times as exciting as now with some quality players (McQueen, McIlroy, Greenhoff, Macari, Jordan). Our defence was leaky and our weakness.

Although we were in the middle of our drought in league titles, we were still getting to cup finals. 70's/80's were our cup years.
