A lot of people think they have mostly plastic fans and would be surprised to know they had or have one of the most notorious firms in England....I agree their away fans on their day are pretty good, but so are ours, I’d say easily right up there.Huge respect for United. A true English institution with their trophy count but mostly their support. Forget all the touristy types (we have them too of course) their core support is unequalled i believe. Enormous home crowds throughout the years but for me it's their away support. They realised that modern football was killing the atmosphere so they did something about it. New songs, old songs, clever songs and constantly loud throughout their games. How anyone can compare them to city is beyond me as they are miles apart. I think we have a good support but we have been left behind by United in that regard.
They’ve started to make a noise now at home but NWHL is going to trump every home ground including those newly promoted clubs with their drums, and generic rent a song.
WHL might have tailed off a bit when all the entitlement crept in but was second to none for me at times...under Jol easily the best home crowd in the PL.
Hope we make a noise Sunday....90k isnt it?
