    Glory hunters who are they?

    83 as a starting point and family heritage counts in your favour.

    Also the fact that you are a mummy's boy means I don't want you crying or anything!

    However, actually Hughes is the start of glory glory time. But you experienced a few years of life without league success, so...

    I am afraid you are only given a provisional membership of the non-glory hunter tag, full membership will be recieved upon experiencing a few barron years in a row mate.

    On the other hand your brother was a glory hunter with aweful timing, now he has totally earned his stripes as loyal Anfield boy.

    • haha.... 4 years in a row, we did not win the title, before 2007.. in case u forgot. A glory hunter would have jumped on another train, i.e. Chelsea, for e.g. Anyway, I just shared how I became a United fan... I'm not seeking any membership from anyone... especially not here. What Man United means to me, only I know that, and it's something very sensitive to me.

      I will also say this about my brother... the fact that he was born in 1990, let's say he started to "watch" the games at 5.... so that's about 1995, the club was no longer a winning team.... so that's really pure love... to repeatedly listen to my jokes about Liverpool down the years, but he kept on supporting the team. I watched the Istanbul final together with him... that was a very special moment for him.

      In my book, a glory hunter is anyone who stops supporting the team when the team stops winning. But your definitions are very unfair to any United fan of my age, because it is not our fault if Fergie is a winning machine, lol.

      As far I'm concerned.... United till I Die, because I didn't fall in love with this team coz it was winning. It's more than that. It's my childhood, my mother's gift to me... and I will treasure it forever, no matter what.
