I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager. Thank you so much once more and always remember: You'll never walk alone."

No this is all good.  It reminds me of how they were all through the 70s and 80s.

Best this, best that, biggest this, biggest that.   

But but but.... we beat Liverpool so should really have won the league.

True...and us in the 90s. Being second (third, fourth) fiddle does strange things to a fan’s mindset. You stop regarding the ‘team’ as the priority and begin to laud individuals as the measure of real quality. In truth, team trumps individual every time and is why Liverpool are so incredibly good. Throwing around names of good players from their own teams is some kind of badge of honour in barren times. United are that club right now. The ‘Bruno’ stuff is next level though.

I honestly don't see any difference between United fans on Twitter and Flat Earthers on YouTube

I pity both equally

School’s out isn’t it?  They can’t sit at the back of the class making farting noises in an attempt to get the attention they crave, so they take to Twitter or message boards and do the equivalent there.

Yep they think throwing together 11 superstars is the way to go and naturally they have those in abundance.

They'll have a couple more seasons in the doldrums where they're not shit but inconsistent so will fall short as the optimism drains away.

Thankfully I think they'll give him more time than he deserves because of so many nearlies in cups, the league and europe which is great for the rest of us.

Raise their game often enough to take points of our main rivals will do for me.

I do love it when they revert back to 70s and 80s type. 😂

Once again, living on past glories and current fantasy whilst Liverpool waltz off with the major silverware.

All they have is could've, would've, should've and the relentless hyping up of the ordinary whilst they preen like peacocks telling everyone they are still the best.

They were delusional for those two decades, and when Ferguson finally got it right in the 90s he was their antipsychotic medication. Now they are off the meds again, the delusions have returned with a vengeance.

My favorite part is that they dicked around for a month to sign Fernandes and now, because he's actually capable of kicking the ball properly, he's being being overhyped to no end. I love it.

They’ve spent the equivalent of the Brazilian national debt in the last half a dozen years only to go backwards. There’s no reason to expect them to suddenly challenge just because a garden gnome is spending it rather than an experienced football manager.

Watching that cup final from 79 how the fuck did Utd beat us (arguably the greatest ever Liverpool side ) in the semi final ? Then again I could say the same about 77
Have to say I remember watching that game being pig sick when Utd got it back to 2-2 at the death.....Well for about 30 seconds.
Watching this final and last weeks Coventry v Spurs makes you realise what a great competition this used to be, that was till the powers that be spoil the it

I had a quick sken of that thread on the caf and it's as though none of the last 2 months has happened.

I've not been on any opposition forum for weeks so I was surprised they're still talking about these huge multi million pound transfers as though life will just go back to normal.

Everybody talks about the lovely alternative history where Gazza goes to United and becomes the model professional.

Nobody talks about the even more wonderful timeline where Gazza at United means there's no position for Cantona, so he goes somewhere else from Leeds and Hansen's prophecy comes true.
