Good on you mates. I'd like the same thing to happen to the national hockey league in canada/usa. Formula sports don't deserve the $'s spent.
malcol glazer take over is the
problem of one united
as real fan iam not happy
FC United! Brilliant
well i think they played well actually
gone to all matches and not disapointed one bit ex man utd fan
I live in Malaysia and have been a manutd supporter from a very young age. I actually found out about the takeover on my birthday. It shattered the day for me. But i managed to catch a FC-UTD game when i was back home in summer and i thought the atmosphere was overwhelming and i would pay to go see FC-UTD over man utd any day any price.
I think FC-UTD is a brilliant idea, i live in Malaysia and have been supporting man utd since i was young. I went back this summer to england and managed to catch the Padiham game. To be honest i thought the atmosphere was overwhelming and i would rather pay to go see FC-UTD over man utd any day.
Went to watch FC United yesterday for the first time. Undoubtedly the best atmosphere in football!! Come and join us!!
all i need now is my doc martins few more scarfs me skinners bobby hat and its back to happy days thankyou fc fc fc utd

Well well well.. I have been a Utd fan since I was 8 years old, over 35 years now home and away, european pre-seasons, the lot (was in Barca in 1999 and Tokyo for the Toyota cup after)... my first ever football game I saw was at Gigg Lane, pre-season again City when I was 7..never thought I would see the day when reds would play at Gigg Lane (saw a pre-season friendly there once with Bury).. come on you Reds, it's only 8 promotions!

Your "half price for kids" comment about United at Old Trafford isn't strictly true. When I got my son the season ticket next to mine in the Sretford Upper Tier the club refused to give me any discount whatsoever. So, at 14 years of age, his season ticket cost a few pounds short of £600. I've just bought him a season ticket at FC United, it cost him £32. Two of his mates, who went to almost every home game at Old Trafford last season with us, are now 16 and are no longer able to afford to go. They been with myself and my son to all FC Uniteds league games so far. Another couple of fans from the younger generation waving goodbye to live games at Old Trafford, what a tragedy for the future of Manchester United Football Club.
FC United is more than just a 'Rebel' breakaway club from Manchester United, it is a reaction against the greed and ill treatment of ALL fans, throughout the game. This is fottball by the people, for the people and that is what the PL clubs fear most - an end to the gravy train for players, agents and unethical, self-centered managers and directors.
FCUM is the way forward. I had more fun last night at Gigg Lane than I did at OT in countless games.
WEnt to both Villa & Padiham games on the same day. One was pretty boring with 10 men behind the ball & littla atmosphere, the other had plenty of action & loud non-stop singing - you guess which was which!
Great article, there's still people out there wanting FC united of manchester to fail but it seems it's getting stronger by each game
best fun I've had at a football match in ages. Singing none stop for 60 minutes. Stood up. Players having a beer with you after the game. A far cry from the sterile rubbish served up in the premiership these days. I'm back in love with football!
Been to the last 5 FC United games, and the atmosphere is like nothing you have ever seen in football in your life.
Anyone with doubts needs to go and see it for themselves, but be warned those with acute hearing should stand at least 2 miles away. The noise is deafening.
And do not think that its all 30+ year old males looking for their mis-spent youth. There are pensioners, children, teenage girls, wives, in fact just about every age group you can think of....
Get yourself to Gigg Lane and see for yourselves. If Premiership teams were to have even half this atmosphere then clubs like FC United wouldnt have a future. But FC United will prosper where other clubs have failed, purely because its a club run for supporters by supporters and the money isnt the issue. Its about having a good time, and believe me, no one will ever leave that ground having watched an FC United match feeling bored.
Kev in Moston
Get yourself along. You'll love it. It's like the old days but even better. Non-stop singing for 90 minutes.
the breath of fresh air that this club has provided is unbelievable - i have never smiled so much as i have at these games - its not just united fans, fans from other clubs like Bury obviously, celtic, AFC Dons and even City have been along to watch us
ok so I'm a football virgin at 32.. got dragged to see Man utd a few years ago by my hubby and the place was well all right i suppose i was awed by the fact it was a huge stadium I've heard all about....so ok Fc United went to my first game on Wednesday against Eccleshall we won 7-1 I'm converted MY god what a fantastic evening, all the singing, the banter, the Mickey taking out of the other goalie, and most of all the community spirit where everyone was together FANTASTIC, all i need to do now is learn the rules , learn the songs, and find out who's who and well I'll be a FC united fan for LIFE , for me Man utd dead and Well FC rocking!!! See ya when I'm 82 I'll still be a fan and i'll still be going to the match's.
I'm a season ticket holder at FCUM. Although it may sound a bit over the top, I can honestly say this club has restored my faith in humanity. There's no obsession with money and there's no-one telling you to sit down and shut up. We should have done this years ago.
A club and players that care about the fans, that make you feel like you're as important a part of this as them.
And bags of excitment, singing, passion and goals!!!!
We won 7-1 last night and things are going from strength to strength. FC United has been labeled as punk football and it's certainly being enjoyed by all that have attended the games so far. A club run by the fans for the fans cannot be a bad thing.
I was one of the thousands at Gigg lane last night for the game against Eccleshall. Fantastic atmosphere, some really good football and a 7-1 victory. That's only a pound a goal!!
Come along and you won`t regret it. Its what football used to be about before big corporations bought it all and priced us ordinary fans out. Its run by the fans for the fans, one member one vote.
Although such is the case people shoud just accept the reality. Let us behave like Chelsea Funs. They did not dispute and see where they are. A headache for us to beat now.
