Since when have you been a Red?
For 14 years, just after i started to get interested in the game.

Who in your family convinced you or made you become a Red?
Absolutely none, most are devout Owls...even some tiger fans :sob:

The best United team that you have seen?
It has to be 'The treble winning side', although i fully admit luck played a big part in the amount of silverware won, however, i still till this day have not seen a better English team since. Honest! :)

How many times have you seen United live?
I used to go alot, infact i used to attend alot of football matches all around the north with my Uncle but since his illness and my being very busy, watching live football has become less regular over the last two seasons, unfortunately, especially at United games.

How many United matches do you watch each season on TV?
Every single one aired on U.K T.V

The English team that you can't stand?
The obvious, City, Liverpool but i truly detest Leeds.

What other English team do you like most?
Sheffield Wednesday, Grimsby, and i've always had a soft spot for Bolton :sigh:

Which player do you hate the most?
It was Keown but right now Robbie Savage has to be right up there, he's a useless antagonistic [email protected]

Which player outside of Arsenal do you admire the most?
Steven Gerrard, has all of the qualities of a true great, he will go down in the history books as one of the best midfielders ever produced in this country.

Your most beautiful moment as a Red?
Again, probably the most significant moment is picking up that CL trophy, especially in the manner in which we did it.

Your worst moment as a Red?
There's too many but getting thrashed by massive wasn't excatly a memorable away trip.

Your current favorite Red player?
i like them all

The worst current United player?
We don't have bad players at our club :)

What's the force and strength of this current United team?
our ability to carry on fighting when all else seems lost, it's a characteristic that has done us well. As long as we continue to drill this mentality into the youngster at grass roots, we should continue playing like this.

What is the weak point of this current United Team?
Midfield needs bolstering, we are looking old and tired at times. Defence is shaky.

Do you like the current coach?
After winning the FA Premier League 8 times and many more trophies in between the man is a living legend here and outside the city.

With whom would you replace him at the end of his contract?
Everyone seems to suggest O'Neil but i happen to believe O'leary would be a good bet too, excellent manager and very underrated. Whoever it is, they will have a hard act to follow.

Do you like the current management?
yes

Which player would you take away from another English team and bring him to Uited?
Stevie G, easily.

An United player whom is overrated?
Saha, never wanted him from day one, however i have given him my 100% backing. Nothing more than a bench warmer.

An United player underrated?
Heinze, quality wing back, love his attitude and commitment. Fans favourite

2 transfers for next season without limits on the amounts?
Gerrard,Duff

3 players to leave for next season?
Bellion,Kleberson,Djemba Djemba

The player that you miss the most?
The old Keane, the great man himself. Sadly he's just a shadow of his former self :(

The player that you're happy to see him having left the club?
Diego Forlan, i liked the guy but not for footballing reasons. He wasn't talented enough for this level. Good luck to him.

The Nightmare as a Red?
Finishing below Liverpool, trophless and within no european qualification place.

Prediction for next season?
League Winner, league cup, Fa cup and champions league winners - We can all dream :)

I think you're overly harsh on Saha. He was banging 'em in last season but smith and Rooney got bought and got injured and dropped down the pecking order.

Maybe it's because Ferguson doesn't like playing two out-and-out strikers, but Saha is easily a better forward than Alan Smith IMO.

Since when have you been a Red?
since I was about 4 or 5. Around 1980/81 at any rate.

Who in your family convinced you or made you become a Red?
The old man. All the rest are scousers :rolleyes:

The best United team that you have seen?
Tough one, the side Fergie was putting together in the early 90s was great. Any team with Cantona in it was class. That and the treble team. Hard to choose.

How many times have you seen United live?
Not as much as I'd like. Probably managed about 40 times before the move to NZ.

How many United matches do you watch each season on TV?
I don't have Sky any more, and work committments keep me busy. As many as I can basically.

The English team that you can't stand?
I do dislike leeds, but more their fans than their team, as its nothing compared to what it was. Liverpool aren't what they were, again, beating them is more about their fans these days. But there are individuals in the Arsenal team I can't stand.

What other English team do you like most?
Bury. Seen them a few times. My grandfather's an Everton fan, so minor affection for them too.

Which player do you hate the most?
Winterburn, Wright, Steve McMahon, Adams....generally anyone turning out for the scousers or gooners in the last 20 years.

Which player outside of Arsenal do you admire the most?
Stevie Gerrard, John Terry...both crackin' players.

Your most beautiful moment as a Red?
When Pallister of all people stuck the cross over for Brucie to nut in the winner against Wednesday. That was when I knew we were going to win the league :proud: and break the wait.

Your worst moment as a Red?
Getting done by the scousers 4-0 in 89. That was bad.

Your current favorite Red player?
Still Keano.

The worst current United player?
Glad Forlan's gone.

What's the force and strength of this current United team?
Individual brilliance of some exceptional players. I don't think we're quite at the level of earlier teams where we were a tight, compact unit.


What is the weak point of this current United Team?
Play breaks down at times. People looking for others to make things happen.

Do you like the current coach?
Er...yes.

With whom would you replace him at the end of his contract?
Wouldn't mind a united man. Look for McClaren or Brucie, unless O'Neill becomes available.


Do you like the current management?
Tought times. Too many games being played at the upper management level. I fear for the club. Too much about money at the top end.

Which player would you take away from another English team and bring him to Uited?
Gerrard, possibly Duff.

An United player whom is overrated?


An United player underrated?
Heinze, quality wing back, love his attitude and commitment. Fans favourite

2 transfers for next season without limits on the amounts?
Gerrard,Duff

3 players to leave for next season?
I'll think about it.

The player that you miss the most?
Keano.

The player that you're happy to see him having left the club?
Veron. He was a terrible buy. As bad as Birtles. Bought for the wrong reasons.

The Nightmare as a Red?
Getting done by massive home and away, RVN clearing off to the scousers...red issue supporting Henry for player of the year;)

Prediction for next season?
League Champions!

Since when have you been a Red?
Interested in the team since the late 80s but interest deepened only in the early 90s. Think it was the year United won the league :D for the first time in many (26) years.

Who in your family convinced you or made you become a Red?
My father, who used to be a Man United supporter but probably got spoilt by United's success in the 90s that he became a glory hunter. I think he supports Chelsea now. :dielaugh:

The best United team that you have seen?
The one with Giggs, Kanchelskis and Cantona. The speed with which they can attack and counter-attack - awesome! :thmbup:

How many times have you seen United live?
Never in my life :( Might try to make the pilgrimage :D when I start working :doh:

How many United matches do you watch each season on TV?
Most of them. I watch all their weekend League matches if they are broadcasted and only weekday matches if I can get myself to wake up in the middle of the night since they are often played at night UK time which means 3am or 4am over here. :(

The English team that you can't stand?
Arsenal - fans, players and manager alike are hypocrites who call Van Nistelrooy a diver, cheat blah blah blah when most of their players are worse. However, most people don't call them an English team these days. :dontcare:

What other English team do you like most?
None

Which player do you hate the most?
Robbie Savage, Paul Ince

Which player outside of Arsenal :D do you admire the most?
Manchester United players

Which player outside of Manchester United do you admire the most?
Shevchenko, Gerrard, Maldini, Ronaldinho

Your most beautiful moment as a Red?
The 1999 Champions League final right after Solskjaer scored the winning goal. Unbelievable!

Your worst moment as a Red?
Losing the title to Arsenal on our own ground.

Your current favorite Red player?
None in particular.

The worst current United player?
Djemba-djemba. But I shall call him Djemba since he turned out only half the player he was supposed to be. :D

What's the force and strength of this current United team?
Raising their game for the 'big' matches and versatility of the players.

What is the weak point of this current United Team?
Lack of teamwork and technique.

Do you like the current coach?
Of course! 8 league titles?

With whom would you replace him at the end of his contract?
McClaren, O'Leary or the Lyon manager. But I doubt United would get a foreign manager.

Do you like the current management?
Not really, but it is better than the times under Kenyon :fero:. We are a Football Club, not a PLC!!!

Which player would you take away from another English team and bring him to United?
Gerrard

A United player whom is overrated?
Wayne Rooney, who has the potential to become a world-class player, but certainly not 'the new Pele'.

An United player underrated?
Gary Neville, Roy Keane (never won any individual awards), Scholes

2 transfers for next season without limits on the amounts?
Gerrard, Vicente/Downing

3 players to leave for next season?
Djemba and Fortune. Send Kleberson out on loan.

The player that you miss the most?
Cantona, Stam

The player that you're happy to see him having left the club?
Veron

The Nightmare as a Red?
Buying another 10 Djembas. Seeing Rooney turn into the new Gascoigne.

Prediction for next season?
Clean sweep of every trophy, just like this season :D

Since when have you been a Red?
in 1988,when I landed at Heathrow,took a long drive to Manchester and drove past Old Trafford with thousands qeueing up for the visit of the Scousers.Even then the site of Old Trafford made the hair at the back of my head stand up!

Since when have you been a Red?
For about ten years. Since the mid nineties.

Who in your family convinced you or made you become a Red?
No one. All my friends and family members are Liverpool supporters.

The best United team that you have seen?
Its a difficult choice. There has been a lot of good United sides throughout the years, but it is difficult not to choose the Treble winning team.

How many times have you seen United live?
Unfortunately, never. I hope I do get to see them live soon.

How many United matches do you watch each season on TV?
I used to watch every single Man U game when I was back home in Zimbabwe. However after moving to USA, due to lack of coverage and a busy life, I hardly get to watch Man U. The good thing is I am going home for Christmas and I will get to watch 8/9 of Man U matches.

The English team that you can't stand?
Liverpool. Maybe because all my friends and family members are Scousers and they never fail to rub it in when we have a disappointing result against whoever the opponent might be.

What other English team do you like most?
None. Only one love: Manchester United :proud:

Which player do you hate the most?
Robbie Fowler. I never liked the fellow.

Which player outside of Arsenal do you admire the most?
Ronaldinho-sheer class.

Your most beautiful moment as a Red?
Has to be lifting the Champions league trophy.

Your worst moment as a Red?
Finishing behind Liverpool during the 2001/2002 season :(.

Your current favorite Red player?
All of the players are my favorite, but Ruud, Rooney, Ronaldo, Giggs, Scholes and Keane are more favorite than the others.

The worst current United player?
Has to be Djemba x 2. Doesnt it?

What's the force and strength of this current United team?
We have a lot of young talented players and we have talent in every position. We have a strong mentality too.

What is the weak point of this current United Team?
We havent gelled together as a team and our young players lack experience on occasions. We also lack the killer instincts of Man U teams of the past and sometimes fail to kill teams off. That lets us down on many occasions.

Do you like the current coach?
Yes, of course.

With whom would you replace him at the end of his contract?
I dont know.

Do you like the current management?
yes

Which player would you take away from another English team and bring him to Uited?
Steven Gerrard of course.

An United player whom is overrated?
None of our players are overrated.

An United player underrated?
Heinze. He is class, but extremely underrated. He is one of the better buys of recent seasons.

2 transfers for next season without limits on the amounts?
Gerrard and Vicente. They both would be great for us.

3 players to leave for next season?
Bellion,Djemba Djemba and O'Shea

The player that you miss the most?
Eric Cantona and the great Peter Schmeichel

The player that you're happy to see him having left the club?
Diego Forlan. I have a lot of respect for Diego as a person, but he just wasnt United's class.

The Nightmare as a Red?
Liverpool winning the Champions leage and us getting relegated.

Prediction for next season?
Agree with what Russ said. we all can dream...cant we?!?!?

Just read those similar threads on Milan, Arsenal & ManU forums. It seems like almost every Gooner & ManU fan wants Stevie G, and Milan fans want Adriano ;)
