I agree you are the top team in terms of success. Over the last twenty years.
I am north london boy and wouldn't ever even consider supporting a team in south london, let alone in a place I have no connection too.
Most of your fans simply chose the team at the top of the league. And there are loads of other reasons you can fool yourselves with, but that is the main reason for most of your supporters over the last fifteen years.
I don't delude myself about why we have fans all over this country and the world. People like to be associated with success.
You are deluding yourself if you think its just a Manchester United thing. Liverpool got loads of fans on board from 70's and 80's, Arsenal more recently and Chelsea even more recently.
The one thing I can't stand is people switching teams to follow success and whilst the ABUs may call people 'plastic' and 'gloryhunters' I don't think many, if any, on this board have done that.

I grew up having been given a 60's era united shirt from my grandparents as a little boy a few years prior to uniteds dominance, i have never been to old trafford though i would absolutely love to go, ive been side supporting bristol city as the nearest team to me with a recent shot at promotion and a chance at seeing united play a nearby away fixture at theirs.
Now feel free to call me plastic all you like, but I believe the loyalty instilled into me from my prior generation to be a good enough reason to devote myself to this club, so i really dont care if were winning or losing.
"Most of your fans simply chose the team at the top of the league."
Prove it, or admit you're talking out of your arse.
"I am north london boy"
You said you were an East London boy.
Admit it, Leyton Orient is your local team, but you chose to be a glory hunter and support Arsenal, if Orient had been top you'd be supporting them now.

Notice I have been honest?
Do you really think true Red Mancs respect the southern glory hunters? No but they are happy for you to buy into the team for the revenue it provides the team they love.
