I agree, I've never been a fan of them. Their fans are fools who've always thought they're better than they actually are, and there's no need for all that belly action. :o

But I've supported Vince's product since I was a small child so I probably won't be able to not cheer them on. My brother in Law supports them also. Could be good for the ol' bonding!!

Fans boo West Ham despite win...

We don't need them on players' backs when we are coming off three defeats. They have to stay and help them win.

At half-time, the players were talking more about fans booing them than the game. I had to make sure they kept focused on the field.

I started playing at 16, got in a first team at 18 and am 59 now, but I've never been in place where I won and got booed.

Remember our fellow supporters booing when we beat Swansea? I've seen it argued by plenty of those who idolise him that booing doesn't affect the players. It seems their hero doesn't agree...

Premier League chief exec annoyed that Man Utd are struggling
"When your most popular club isn't doing as well, that costs you interest and audience in some places.""There are lots of fans around the world who wish Manchester United were winning it again," added Scudamore.
"But you have to balance that off against, generally, we're in the business of putting on a competition and competition means people can compete."

They appear extraordinary comments on face value, the sort that should lead to a resignation. Explains why injury time at Old Trafford goes on until they score...

Its also pretty insulting to fans around the world to suggest they're only interested in watching their team win.

I'll bear that in mind next time I'm looking at the empty seats at Ewood on a match day... :yeahright:

And even if it is insulting, they're Man Utd fans. They had it coming.
