Welcome to the second feature of My Love for United, a piece designed to involve the Manchester United community in these difficult times and keep the United talk and discussion going with a series of questions.
Stretty News chief editor and founder Dale O’Donnell and myself took to Twitter last week to give fans the chance to get involved, the lucky chosen winner to feature in this week’s piece was Stephen Conway.
So, without further ado, here is supporter Stephen’s love for United story.
When did you start supporting United?
Around 1978. My dad wouldn’t buy me a Celtic top when I was 5. He got me a united top. Moved to Manchester when I was 16-years-old in 1990.
Does United run in the family?
Favourite United player of all time?
Roy Keane. Warrior.
Then I’d have to say Cantona, Scholes, Beckham, Cole, Giggsy and Rooney.
Favourite current player?
There’s three actually… Bruno, Rashford and Dan James.
Most hated rival and opposition player of all time?
Suarez, Gerrard, Fowler, Torres. Most Liverpool players.
Opposition player you’d like us to sign?
Favourite United match of all time?
4-3 derby game. Owen scored winner. Around 2009.
Glazers in or out?
Out. They’ve rinsed the club. £1.5bn in 15 years. City have invested £1.4bn. They’ve let other rivals takeover for their own corporate greed.
Is Ole at the wheel for the long term?
I love Ole. I believe he has the right attitude for the job. His signings were good in the summer and Bruno in January too. Needs more time. We’ve been through too many managers since Fergie. Patience and belief is crucial from the fans. Too much division between fans these days. In my humble opinion.
