Manchester United have the biggest fan base in the world. Being the most successful club in one of the most popular leagues in world football certainly helps expand their fan base.
While many of the United fans are ‘plastic’, here are eleven sure shot ways of knowing that one is a true supporter of the Red Devils.
#1 You know that Sir Alex Ferguson is the greatest coach that there ever was, ever is!
In 26 years as the manager of Manchester United, he has won 38 trophies, which is more than what Arsenal has ever had in the entirety of their existence. No one will ever match Fergie’s longevity. And you even loved him when he gave the ‘hair-dryer treatment’ to the star players.
No one’s bigger than the club.
#2 You take pride in the ‘99 Treble
“Beckham..into Sheringham.. AND SOLSKJAER HAS WON IT!!! Manchester United have reached the promised land!”
This piece of commentary from is still fresh in your mind.
It was called the impossible dream, and who else but the Red Devils became the first team ever to win the Premier League, the FA Cup, and the Champions League in the same season. Atlas, we do not do Mickey Mouse trebles like Liverpool.
#3 For you, games are only over when the final whistle blows
Even now, three years after Sir Alex’s retirement, you know in your heart that the game is not over until the final whistle. Whatever the scoreline, you know there is always time to snatch victory from the opposition. And there is nothing more joyous than an injury-time winner.
