About the moaning bastards....

Sick of the way our club is being run? Sick of the shite excuses, idiotic day trippers, souless atmospheres, ticketing fiasco's, and general daylight robbery we have to endure as united (and other clubs) fans?

Come here and vent your spleen, with all the other moaning bastards.

20-odd years of trophies and we are still a bunch of moaning bastards, but we pay or have paid these cunts wages for long enough, so why shouldn't we?

Feel free to add your opinions if you are a fan of another club, bitters, dippers and sheep molesters are all welcome, but please bear in mind that this blog will have all its posts vetted by a panel of complete cunts before they are filtered out, stuck in a bin and set fire to.

As you were gentlemen.

Have you got the stomach for a fight?

As a poster on the Red Issue forum, I read with predictable regularity, thread after thread about how our support is turning to shit, infested with Henleys clad funboys with £100 haircuts bouncing around chucking beer on each other and generally acting like dicks. "We're man United, we do what we want" seems to be the current mantra and is becoming alarmingly popular with stickers and T-Shirts already and this embarrassing new refrain seems to be here to stay, for now at least.

On one hand, these young Reds are annoying as fuck, acting up, talking like lads and bouncing around when in the safety of large numbers, giving slit-throat gestures to opposing scarfers and generally bringing it on top for the rest of us with regards to Police and the already archaic rule of power happy, minimum-wage slave stewards, especially those fucking chancers employed by CES.

On the other hand, consider this, they're young lads and young lads generally act like dicks for about 80% of the time they're not asleep, squeezing their spots or watching X-Factor, cock in hand. Who's leading the way for the young Reds now attending aways on a regular basis? Who's teaching these lads the traditions of our support? In my day, anyone acting up got a hairdryer from some bigger, older lad and on rare occasions a bit of a slap, they didn't act up again. Nowadays the dressing downs come in the form of pious observations from people on internet message boards...It clearly does not work.

So how do we resuscitate the dying Red Army? The answer is obvious and has been staring you in the face the last five years, we get some backbone and get the fight back in us to get our club out of the grasping, poisonous clutches of the Glazer family. You may sit in your spunk encrusted underpants, criticising the young parrothead Reds with some dazzling wordplay and a rolleye smiley but unless you've stood side by side with fellow Reds (literally or metaphorically) to object against,defy and fight the Glazer regime then you are no better than a the lads you're slating. Don't like it? Tough, it's true, your club is being destroyed, its soul and traditions torn apart by people with no interest in MUFC and you have just watched them do it.

Is it any wonder our support is being infested with the same "Soccer AM" type shite as all the tinpot clubs like Stoke, City, Reading and their ilk when we can barely muster enough numbers to fight to get our club back? Defiance and objection can come in many forms, boycotting, active protest, violence and aggression, banners and scarves, financial starving etc and can all be achieved easily enough, some things may even take as little as five minutes for you to have even a slight impact and a slight impact is better than nothing.

Mick Groom quite rightly came in for a hell of a lot of stick, having his picture taken with Avram Glazer then putting it on his facebook, me, I'd have slotted the cunt (Glazer, not Groom) but to each his own, however, picking fights with other Reds is not what we should be doing now, Groom's support of the lads on the pitch cannot be called into question and I'm sure he's learned an important lesson, thus bringing me to the biggest problem we have as supporters of Manchester United.

The division in our support is a fucking joke, I'll say it again, a fucking joke and those using these divisions to drive a wedge between different factions are helping to kill what was once the best support in the country. Be it those who disagree with FC United, Tufty being Tufty, green & gold, ex-players refusing to comment, well known and respected faces in our support refusing to comment against the Glazers, whatever, those people who are putting their own selfish requirements and needs ahead of the good of the club are a disgrace to the club itself, a club which rightly prides itself on fighting on in the face of adversity. We are in the biggest fight of our lives and all they, all you can do, is snipe and bitch at other Reds.

You don't like MUST/IMUSA, the FC lot are "traitors," the FC lot who think anybody who didn't boycott in 2005 shouldn't have a right to protest or sneer at efforts to protest now, the green & gold brigade who begrudge other supporters the right to wear their beloved club's colours of red, white and black and most stupid of all the people who hate anybody in green and gold because our colours are red, white and black...our club is fucked, the owners openly show you nothing other than utter contempt and you insist on focusing on the colour of someone's scarf, nice one, got your priorities right there haven't you.

Across the board there are supporters, face it we all know who, who have shown open disregard for the brilliant green and gold movement for whatever reason. However, with the exception of the scouse cunt with the shit flags, the love for United amongst the dissenters cannot be doubted, they are genuine reds and for all intents and purposes, decent lads who are a staple in our "traditional" support and it's a shame they have taken this stance because their support in the fight against Glazer would be welcomed with open arms.

We have to fight, when I say "we" I don't mean the Malaysian/Chinese tourists, the corporates or the daytrippers, I mean WE, United, the club's genuine, loyal support who live and breathe MUFC everyday, we have to fight our one common enemy, if we all unite together and show some fucking backbone, we will win this battle and the battles ahead. Okay so you've dished out a few slaps on the forecourt in the past, you've done Elland Road on a Wednesday night, you were in Galatasaray, that's all well and good but pales in comparison to the fight you're in now because this fight has relevance, it's not just about now, it's about the future of the club you love and how that club treats your kids when they take your place as an older Red.

It's easy to dismiss this battle saying "we can't win so what's the point?" but if you do, well, I'm afraid you're a bit of a cunt. Sorry. Last season saw some life back in Old Trafford, the semi-final games against our moustachioed simpleton neighbours showed what our support and what Old Trafford can be capable of, there was a defiance in the air, the piss and vinegar was back and I fucking loved it. That was all down to the protests against Glazer and his spawn and that's a fact, relatively mundane atmospheres were brought to life by the protests against the hierarchy, AC Milan in particular and the continued battles with CES and the club blatantly going against the law to defy any protesting Reds the right to do so, stand out in particular, as does the statistic that supporters won every single battle.

Don't get caught up trying to dissect the social makeup of the protesting supporters, asking whether joining them will benefit you in any way, this is not a green & gold thing or a MUST thing, this war is, was and always will be LOVE UNITED HATE GLAZER, pay as close attention as you can muster to the first two words of that slogan.

I am not an FC lad, a green and gold lad, a MUST lad, an IMUSA lad or any other fucking label you throw around at will, I'm a local born and bred United lad who loves and understands what Manchester United is about and what our responsibility is to maintain the club's traditional values and I'm asking you to stand by my side and fight the disease that is rotting away the world's most fabled football club. Fight alongside other Reds who share with you a bond for life even though you may have never met before, show the Glazers, show the premier league, show the fucking government and the whole fucking world that you don't come to Manchester and take liberties with our football club. Five years is long enough, get off your knees and say "NO" you will not take it anymore and do your bit to save the club. It's down to us and us alone and it's time to give the cunts both barrels. Having recently seen a planned protest organised for the match at home to Spurs on the 30th of this month, I'd suggest that as as good a starting place as any.

Fuck off Glazer
Fuck off SKY
Singing "We Will Never Die"
