Eh? Even Alex Ferguson said Man Utd have a massive connection with Ireland, probably closest after Celtic. Man Utd were almost originally named 'Manchester Celtic' ffs.

Welcome anyway...

Evening mate

Course we do United have a big connection with both Ireland and Scotland.

I have quite a few Irish and Scottish mates ( All British and proud of it) what I do have a problem with are sections of Celtics support ( IRA loving scum) as I am British to the core. Thats why I like Rangers

Anyway

Manchester United was formed in 1878 as Newton Heath ( played in Green and Gold thats were the recent Green and Gold anti Glazer campaign comes from)

In 1901 - 1902 following the reorganisation of the Club many called for a name change. Manchester Central was suggested, but it was decided that it sounded too much like a railway station, also suggested and rejected was Manchester Celtic, then a Mr Louis Rocca hit upon the name Manchester United. The name had been suggested before but had not met much support, but this time it stuck and on Saturday 26th April 1902 Newton Heath became Manchester United :uk:

Welcome to the site mate, best of luck for the upcoming season. I always watch Manchester United if they are on TV, a very entertaining team to watch. Not that I enjoy seeing them win though.

Good luck for the group stages as well but I can see you struggling at Ibrox.

Cheers mate

Would be great for both teams to get through

Some are mate but you will probably find that that section are arrogant towards everybody and not proper fans

Your second point ( Them is Celtic I assume)

I don't think we have much room to criticise their fans' behaviour after what happened in May 2008.

Welcome buddy 00000042.gif

Ehhhhhh, yes we fucking do. They attacked women, kids & old men from behind with no provocation. In Manchester we reacted to police brutality and have had to put up with 2 years of lies and bullshit from the media.

The OP seems like a decent bloke though. (tu)

(tu) and they turned a screen off, not that long before a European final in front of thousands of fans, who put alot of money in to there city. And they wonder why there was trouble.? there was the same trouble somewhere in england when a screen failed for one of there world cup games,and they were all rioting. WE NEVER HEARD FUCK ALL ABOUT THIS.!
