We Hate Manchester United: Should We?
Now I know we’re not all massive fans of Manchester United, ok we pretty much hate them but is it time to acknowledge what Sir Alex Ferguson has done and continues doing for British soccer?

As football fans we’ve all experienced that inner hatred when Manchester United score a goal, pass a ball or just enter the Stadium. There reams of superstars seem to relish opposing fans chants of torment which in turn angers us more toward them and the football club. Year after year they pick up silver wear and year after year our envious green is covered with the red of anger and hate. Nobody likes Manchester United, it’s something us football folk grow up on. We love our team, follow our boys and hate our neighbouring teams and of course the exception which is Manchester United.
If we take time out of our football soap boxes and ask ourselves why we hate this club so much, other than its fans of course, there’s not too many excuses left. The manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been the butt of so many chants of rage from visiting fans but I think it’s time, now this may hurt a little to type it, but I think its time to say well done Sir Alex….ouch.
Joking aside, what he has done at that football club is nothing short of remarkable and the way he has gone about it is commendable to British football. Each season I start to feel a bit more appreciation and admiration toward Ferguson and his work, I hope I’m not ill or anything.
Young home grown talent have emerged from the Theatre of Dreams each year including massive names such as Beckham, Giggs and Scholes. Ferguson seems to keep finding them and this season is no exception. Quality looking players like Gibson are coming through the ranks and it’s great for British football and its future. The way united play is magnificent too and that simple passing game is so easy on the eye which can only help the next generation in watching this total football.
So I’ve said it now, yes its Manchester United but what a job and what a team…….long may it continue?? Ok too far I’m sorry!!
