    It is so easy being a rag, almost guaranteed sucess, lots of merchandise to buy, constantly on the telly, never need go to a live match, nearest they get to the big match atmosphere is down the pub. I admire most of all the supporters of the likes of Bury, Accrington, Rochdale and the like, never going to see real sucess follow the team because that is where they live, usually their money that keeps the club alive, why because I have been there following city that is the main difference. You could take the rags out of trafford and stick them almost anywhere in the world (apart from Manchester) and they would have a loyal fanbase try that with any other club and it would probably fail.

    To be fair, they are not genetically different. We are all made of the same stuff.

    When you win week in week out, season after season, trophy after trophy, you start expecting to win. Your kids grow up expecting their team to be champions every year. That is all many of them have known.

    By contrast, we have put up with some tripe haven't we. We have learned to cope by laughing at ourselves, because it's better than the alternative which is to break down and cry. This self deprecating humour has been one of our best attributes and has earned us the respect of many an opposing fan. But let's not get carried away - its not because we are somehow better supporters, merely that we have been shit for years and have found a way of dealing with it.

    But success brings a different dynamic, an unpleasant one. The arrogance is creeping in here as well. We are starting to expect to win and some are being tossers to be honest when we don't, demanding the sack of the manager or whichever player has an off game. Laughing at the opposition isn't the most attractive beaviour either.

    I hope as the tables turn and we overtake United, we can rise above the shite they have dished out for years and retain some humility. I worry we will end up the same as them.

    Think that answers it all in one... very hard to deal with and that arrogant over your shoulder look they give that theres something more interesting happening 'cringe'! These past 35 plus years of football in my book we have always had the better laugh and another point their close group of mates always seems to be that smaller!!

    Very good post. As a rag I sometimes wish it´d be the 80s again (bar LFC-cunts). Love the feeling of winning though after the terrible spell in 70-80s and our away is still top notch

    I´ve never washed me undies (a lot of nice girls over the years has taken the pleasure) and I´ve supported the best club in the world for over 30 years. You can´t beat it:-)
