This is OK but I ask you to let people know about this politely please.

In the past we have had cases where people here have been quite nasty when telling people about this 'Man U' thing.

If you do point it out to others refer them to this thread. This way they know it's not good to say this - they also know the reason why - which is much better I think.

Nice thread -= well done x

Oh looooooooooooooooooooool you mean that I have to change my user name! , I Actually never heard about this & I never said manu in the topics but I used it just to shorten the user name.

Also I don`t hate any team I`m a supporter only , hating was way before when I was a kid ( I hated arsenal like hell) but now I forgot all this, this is just football my only purpose is to enjoy it so I don`t care about what other people call us.
Noooooo leave your user name alone dont worry about it.

I never heard about this either until they tell me here.

I'm a bit like you and dont really worry about Liverpool or Arsenal and 'name calling'. Sticks and stones..........

I just read the start of this thread again and I'm confused.

Please dont tell me the reason we have to be annoyed with the term 'Man U' is because some assholes included it in their silly little song !!!

If people sing sick songs about United or whatever - ignore them !!

Making big fuss about it - like this - only makes them happy to see they have upset you !!

It's just a silly pathetic little song, sung by a very, very small group of idiot fans from Liverpool and Leeds.......a very small minority indeed. But with all this fussing and worrying about it - you make it a BIG, BIG thing.

I read here that someone says it is also because someone once said Man Ure too.

LMFAO......

That is pathetic - a very sad attempt to make a joke really.

If someone said to me "Carly you bitch - you're a big pile of manure"....I would have to laugh at this - silly little person.

I ask a few of my friends too who follow United - they never heard about this Man U thing either !!

I don't know - much ado about nothing maybe huh :p

And to be honest I dont care if you keep using that term or not. But what annoys me is how ignorant you can be about it. You want to use the term, fine go ahead.
Slight problem here.

You obviously didn't read what I wrote.

You dont care if I keep using that term ?

When did I use it ?

Where did I say I have ever used this name ?

When did I ever say I will use this name ?

You might find it annoying how ignorant I am - well I apologise but I'm from abroad and my post was to explore the reasons and to learn about this.

Don't invent things in your head about me saying it, or using it.

I was talking in general about people trying to lighten up how offensive the term is. You said, and I quote "Please dont tell me the reason we have to be annoyed with the term 'Man U' is because some assholes included it in their silly little song !!!". Well yeah its because of that, and it is a big deal unlike what your implying there about it being silly. Insulting our dead is not something we can call silly.
You weren't talking in general at all.......you specifically said "I dont care if you keep using that term or not. But what annoys me is how ignorant you can be about it. You want to use the term, fine go ahead".

Aimed directly at me - not people in general !!!

So what would happen now if they had used the term "Manchester United" instead of "Man U" ?

Change the clubs name ?

LMAO.......yes ok whatever..............you QUOTED me and then said "you"........anyway forget that !!!

I understand what you say here now you show me some of the words to this song.....

You cant expect all of the United fans on here to know about songs like this - I never heard it - in fact only 2 people have shown they are angry about this......everyone else seems oblivious to it all.

I very rarely see the term 'Man U' on here to be honest.

My point was.........by showing that this pisses you off in such a big way only makes them do it more !!

Sometimes people say nasty things to me.......so I ignore them and very soon it stops !!

Anyway..........I think everyone has the message now.

So lets forget all this and get back to watching United thrash everyone who turns up for a game, lol.....:)

I agree with you to some extent. When a person "attacks" someone for using the term without knowing their background, it leads to people being ignorant about it. People have to remember that the amount of foreign fans is way larger than the amount of english fans and a large base of our fans havent lived in the 50s-80s and know very little about that era. Education, nicely put education, is required from the ppl with knowledge. You dont shout at someone and expect him to do what you say. Instead you put your point across nicely on why the term is offensive and Im positive that the vast majority of our lovely fans would stop using the term once they know its offensive.

Again, the term is offensive. And for people who say its just a nickname, you dont call Man City "man C" do you ? or "aston V" ? Its not a nickname, its an offensive term
I would never actually think to use this term 'Man U' to be honest. Never mind 'Man C' or 'Aston V'.......it's just weird to say and bad English.

Then again the average Scouser doesn't speak too good English anyway, lmao.....I cant understand a bloody word they say :D :D

As long as everyone sees this thread then they will know all about what you say and................problem solved :)

The thing is with the name it's was meant as an insult to start with, however the meaning of it has been reduced over the years due to the media and other people not being as bothered about it.
I tried to tell people ages ago this point.....

If you make big fuss and moan about it......

They will do it more and more......

Shrug your shoulders and walk away and they will get bored very, very quickly :p

This is not official United but an attached forum for fans.
This is actually the previously quite famous "Talking Reds" forum ...

Now sadly 'infamous' after all the mods and admin were sacked and 'manutd.com'
inadvertantly forgot to appoint replacements.

It is now a sad, sorry dead duck ... :D

Mods delete this thread

Delete all threads on this issue please ? its offensive to me and some fans
Excuse me, lol ...

We are more than capable of deciding what to delete ... :rolleyes:

You complain that all the 'new' fans don't know about this ...

Then you ask us to hide it away ...

So how do they learn about it then ... ?

Much better we have one thread explaining it all to them isn't it ?

This way we educate them ...

sorry if my comments were inflammatory....... but i still stick to my point
Don't worry about inflammatory things ... :eek:

You see my point too I hope ... we show this thread for a few days ...

All the new guys read it ...

The thread fades away again ...

And nobody ever says 'Man U' on here ever again ...

Now that's got to be worth doing don't you agree - of course you do ... :p ;)

Two posts from you Abo ...

First one says "Man U is insult thats bad" ... Yes !!!

Second one says "man u whats wrong with it what's the difference"

Are you trying to take the p....... trying to upset people here ?

You really need to cut it out !!

Read the threads - understand what it says - then reply.

If you don't understand then say NOTHING !!

You are upsetting other members now and I wont have that happening.

I have been very, very patient so far but my patience is running out !!
