I am amazed that none of you knew this ? M*** is offensive. During the munich tragedy the lfc fans called us : Man U Never Intended to Come Home : M-U-N-I-C-H !
LFc fans also called us 'manure' ! If that doesnt get ur blood boiling , i dunno waht will ? What is it with these 'new' fans ? Dont know club history ? no offence.

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 ;)

Well you are amazed that none of us kinew about this? Let me tell you that i've heard even tv pundits use this term on national television here in India.

Don't you think had someone knew about the offensive nature of that word, they would have contacted the channel or something to refrain them from using this term?

But it hasn't happened yet. Meaning most of the fans over here are ignorant about this. That term is being used freely over here(even by united supporters as far as i know) and it wont stop untill people come to know about this .I only knew about this when i visited the forum of the official website of our club.

I don't think that this thread should be deleted, coz if it's gonna make atleast one ignorant united fan from using this word, then it will be well worth the troubles.

Yeah I knew about the manure thing because my scouser mates always use it and yeah we should never say 'man u' because like stated before it is insulting and its an insult from other fans. Imo this thread should be kept open so others can learn this because like some people have said, even TV Pundits have used this term whithout knowing. Like I was watching an Indonesian channel showing Man United on a p2p program and their half time pundits keep on saying Man U blah blah and it ticked me off but like yeah we should start to spread the word about it that we consider it as an insult and maybe that way people will use it less often.

I agree that it's an offensive term due to the way it came about and I also think that educating people about it is important.

I've heard Bryan Robson call us 'Man U' on MUTV, it's in the corner of the screen when we play on TV, my mum (who is getting forgetful in her old age) calls us 'Man U' no matter how many times I tell her not to and I've seen youngsters on forums get ganged up on and called 'fake fan' or whatever for using the term.

You have to remember though that once you've explained to someone why you find the term offensive and ask them not to use it again then the decision is up to them. If they decide to carry on using it then no matter what you say to them they won't change their mind - especially if you resort to name-calling.

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 !!

Thats what I've been saying. Abo posts whatever comes to his mind. Sometimes Random thoughts and gibberish..... well mostly that.... ! And most of us dont understand what he posts ! Includes you..... so he's gotta change , tel him that... You must think before you post and read previous posts. The issue raised in this thread is serious and abo has posted 2 completely opposing thoughts in the same day..... It's really upset me , he posts man utd as manunt ? (Even in his banner...lol). We ..... ahm.... you've gotta do something......

im not bothered

i dont call us man u not for munich taunts (we get them everywhere we go)

but because it sounds like a foreign cheesy name for us

cringeworthy

Never heard this before, always was taught to beleive that it was a term used by day-trippers with no knowledge about United at all.

Plus it just makes you sound like your soft.
