Some Man Utd Fans Shame Their Club

Some Man Utd Fans Shame Their Club

Great match yesterday v Man Utd.

Obviously there were a couple of fan issues that slightly tarnished it though.

It is however, I think, important to note the indiscretions were from SOME of the Man Utd fans, not ALL.

The first embarrassment to their Club (and country) was not respecting the minutes silence in honour of our fallen heroes and current forces, tasteless and classless and I am quite sure an awful lot of Utd fans would agree.

The second they should be totally ashamed of. Booing, heckling and even singing 'we hope you die' during the 19th minute tribute to our club skipper, Stiliyan Petrov.

Seriously? Why? How could anyone think let alone sing that?

The balance is a comment from a Man Utd fan left on Sky Sports. I hope I'm ok lifting this:

'I'm a life long Utd fan, long before Sir Alex Ferguson became manager. I was at today's game and what a great game it was, full of energy,spirit and entertainment. The Villa fans were tremendous, they got behind their team and I give them and Villa full credit today.'

Adding,

'Some of our fans on the other hand were nothing short of a disgrace!!!! During the 19th minute tribute to Stan Petrov, a number of our fans decided it would be a good idea to chant 'Let him die!'. I was ashamed to sit amongst them. These idiots let themselves and our club down today with a display of sheer lack of disrespect and compassion for a man who has been fighting for his life. On behalf of us 'respectful' Utd fans, I apologise for the small number of morons for their behaviour at today's game. Best of luck for the rest of the season Villa and get well soon Stan.'

Nice to see that comment. As Tom Ross said in the phone in on the way home from the game, banter and rivalry aside, football is a community we ALL belong to.

Strange how the press didn't pick up on this isn't ?

Not good but heard far, far worse this season and over the last 30 years. Storm in a tea cup. More concenred with United's dozy performance again.

Yep storm in a tea cup...really not sure how disrespectful something has to be for it to be converted someone's life and that of men and women defending our country disgraceful...Utd fans have gone down a long way in my estimation.

Same old Manure fans. They always blame everyone else also. There was probably as many sat in home seats though and it is the hardcore of them that's the problem. Was by the away pub when they trashed it a couple of seasons ago. It's not fashionable to have a go at them though. Millwall fans in the paper today in Her Majesty Pleasure.

Looks like Roy Keane was right about the prawn cocktails, probably radioactive.
