If we're honest, it's probably envy that's at the root of our dislike of them, but Fergusson's presence does seem to fuel it (and perhaps even justify it).
I was never a big fan of the Arse, but since that arrogant twat Wenger took the reins, I've hated them all the more. I also quite liked Sheffield Utd before Warnock was manager.
On the other hand, I always hated Villa, particularly under Gregory, but I'm ambivalent towards them now O'Leary's there. I've warmed towards West Brom since Megson's arrival. Personalities play a big part in it for me.
O'Neill always comes across as a decent, likeable sort of bloke. Would you despise Manure with the same venom as you do now if he was in charge?
And now many of the gloryhunters don't appreciate that aspect of their history. I asked one from Southampton who was the captain of tyhe Busby Babes and he said Duncan Edwards! Thick sycophantic parasite!
You're right there coll. But when thre isn't a club of very high profile in the local area, it ain't gonna happen. The other thngis how ManUre are marketed. All kids see when they grow up is the shit and so it gives them all poisoned minds and want to support ManUre
