In no particular order:-

1) the legions of "fans" that they have that have absolutely no connection to Manchester but declare themselves to be diehard fans eg people who only follow clubs that are successful rather than their local club, most of the Phillipines, Thailand, etc.

2) that whinging ungracious clock-watching **** of a manager. Not that this implies that he isn't a good manager. He's proved that at Aberdeen and Man United. But he's a horrible individual.

3) Eamonn Holmes.

4) the relentless arse-licking from sections of the media eg Eamonn Dunphy, Pat Crerand, Clive Tyldesley.

5) the whole Rio Ferdinand saga where rather than just admit they were in error they started trying to throw their weight about and bought their player a much longer ban.

6) Roy Keane

Anyone?

apart from reason 3), i dont get the 'hatred' part? Whats so different from any team, its just individuality of a team in football so whats to hate? I am from south so i see/hear the hatred for France.... (oops i mean Arsenal) more than man utd, but really they are just successful teams that followers of other teams just envy. Thats sad really, the more hatred you show just shows more envy coming out of you..... thats not good m8.
I think that some fans & members here force their team & views directly in your face thinking they will change the world, which generally causes more to dislike their team, so I guess that works backwards too- if you try and force people to hate a team they will generally gain support..... do you really want that daz?
Maybe you are French or support Lille but its irrelevant. Football should be fun and should have rivalry but i dont agree with pure hatred of any team, it has no place in the sport.
By the way i am not a man utd or arsenal supporter, far from it.

Whatever way you look at it, Roy Keane was one of the best defensive midfielders of the decade. If you hate his aggressiveness and hard persona then well enjoy the softness that this game is becoming.

Other defensive midfielders like Viera were exactly like Roy Keane, they were classic good defensive midfielders, something that is now lacking in the game.

You cant hate a club due to one player.

Same with the old firm up here. I know loads of folk who claim to be fans of Celtic or Rangers yet have never been to a game in there life and make no effort to watch any games at all.

They just check results and if there team wins they wear the top the next day.

I think its shocking that if I went to a Falkirk v Rangers or Celtic match more than half of there fans stay as close to Falkirk Stadium than I do!

"We support our local team"

In between Bro and Mairyhinge. Hold that thought..
We have a song at the Reebok Stadium that goes....."we only hate Man United".......
I do however agree that "hate" is perhaps a too a strong word.
I live 10 miles away from Old Trafford, but I live in Bolton. I was born, educated and now work in Bolton.
I therefore support Bolton Wanderers.
What iritates me are the people who buy the replica shirt from 3 seasons ago that's been reduced to clear in Primark, just because that particular team is doing well at that moment in time.
The sales of Chelsea shirts rocketed last year too.

Also, why is it that most Man U fans are fat cockneys with ginger hair?????
Just have a look in the crowd on Match of the day!!!!!
I bet they are the first team on too!!!!!
