.....you're born in Manchester?

Interesting points and fun to read. Don't agree with the non significance of England though. Winning a World Cup would surpass anything at club level. Just imagine the scenes in the local pubs... The wonder of international football is that you can cheer the same team with your friends that support Chelsea Arsenal & Liverpool. Everyone in the building is going for the same result and share the same dreams and ultimately (for England) disappointments.

Shouldn't tarnish all Utd fans with that brush. Some of us still love England and international football. Its that attitude that I hate in other fans...

Well I should have made the thread with the title 'You know you are a United fan when...'
That would have been more appropriate.

Does it say anything about crying after you lose a match in there, because there should be. When we lost to Pompey I cried like a baby, and I'm not ashamed of saying it. I LOVE THE REDS!

Two games come to mind.

United v Stoke (way back); united losing 2 mins to go and won
United v Chelsea (approx 1974) United losing 2-0 with 2 mins to go, and drew 2-2. As often quoted, "it ain't over, till its over!"

and of course

May 1999 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
