You have to realize that there will always be many types of people with many different opinions. Lately, I've seen 3 major types on here that I think 99% of people can be categorized into.

There will always be the group that cheers at the good times and points fingers at the bad times. There will always be those who are jealous, envious, or just jerks who will always try to ruffle the feathers of others. There will always be those who stand at the end of a game and clap for a team that is giving it their best to show their thanks for all the fan support.

What's important is knowing which group you are in, and which group you know to steer away from and ignore if need be.

(Not sure if this is the right place, mods feel free to move it if need be...)

Well, I belong in that remaining 1%. I cannot be categorized

United supporters including myself have had it good over the last decade and a half, I just think people react differently because they feel hurt and they do not know how to react any differently.
People who slag the manager or the players, are just hurt and they don't mean it, they just hate to see their team in this position.

It's understandable because people spend a fortune to see their team and those players who play are getting masses of money for doing something as simple as kicking a ball.

I don't go pointing at the bad times, but I expect high standards from United as they are that type of club but not to win everything every season. I don't feel I fit in to any of those catagories, I am just that other 1% that cannot be catagorised.
All I try to do is look on the bright side of it, even if I don't say anything positive I cetainly think of the positives, like last night when we lost, I took the positive out of it - Rooney being injured gives Tevez a chance, Nani gets his chance and Hargreaves gets to show some England fans in England that the hard hitting critiscism he once got was a load of old bull, and to remind the rest of the United team that they must be able to play without key men like Neville, Ronnie, and Rooney

I dont want to categorise as we surely all want the same outcome, i believe its more a question of personal expectation. We (the fans) have been spoilt in recent years with not only attractive football but also with the results. In my view, the only divide amongst our fans is between those whom are younger and have only experienced success, hence thieir expectancy levels are higher. Then there are those like myself whom followed us through bad times and you can relate to this when things go wrong as in every aspect of life. I dont believe for one moment that we wont be back up there soon, so lets not be 'fickle fans' and show some faith to our religion.

Said before, say again. Anyone in here who cannot recall pre Fergie days is spoilt. All you have known is success or near success. I refuse to be categorised because my opinions of the team differ weekly. I am too realistic to be wearing rose tinted specs and too aware of past times to get carried away on the strength of one successful season in 4.

The players are paid way too much and are more interested in opinionate gosip in the press than performing on a football field. I bet not one of them went home and sulked about the result on Sunday, but went out on the ego trippin' club circuit (again).

How many times do you read about this or that player and his opinion on how they are going to cope with game x, y or z. And then don't! I have seen years and years of Giggs and Co on how much it means to the fans and all that crap and how they will be positive and murder the opposition. I don't even read it anymore, its all meaningless waffle.

Fergie should, in the next prgramme, apologise on behalf of his non performing players and tell the fans that he will be throwing some tea cups, and getting out the hair dryer out because they are not even earning their money at present. They have been like this for a long time now, with the exception of the period 2006/2007, and success tends to gloss over the fact that many players are not earning their bread.

I am one of those who stands up at the end of a game and claps for the team as a way of thanking them for doing their best.

Maybe I am wrong but I dont think any sportsman or woman has a character that will allow them to not perform to their best ability.

This is why they have the position and money they have too......they are true competitor and losing hurt them bad !!!!

I dont believe for one minute ANY United player can be accuse of non-trying......they dont want to be second ever - SECOND PLACE IS THE FIRST LOSER !!!!!!

Sorry if there was any confusion. I didn't mean that this was the only 3 types of people or that anyone was supposed to be categorized at all. It was mainly just a rethorical question just for self reflection for everyone.

It's understandable to be a little upset with how the end results come and everything. However, slandering the team and staff (even if it's just to blow off steam) is uncalled for I think. It gives off a bad perception and nothing good comes from it.

A little shoulder brushing and looking towards the next game usually works for me :)

What if Fergie has been at OT longer than I have been alive? Does that make me spoilt?
