The Biggest Manchester United Fan I Have Ever Met

The biggest Manchester United fan I have ever met and known has got to be the other Co-Founder of Nuffnang, Ming.

Seriously.

Let me tell you 3 true stories to show you why.

Story 1: Watching the Champion's League Semi-Finals

While Manchester United was playing the semi-finals of the Champion's League Ming was down in KL for work and he was staying at my place.

The match was something like 3.00AM and in spite of having an early morning meeting the next day, he made sure he was up at 3.00AM to watch the match in my living room.

The night was a very very quiet lonely night and I was sleeping nicely through it when I was suddenly jolted out of bed by a yell from my living room.
"YES!!!!!!"

I remembered that Ming was in my living room watching the match so I assumed Man Utd must've scored a goal or something so I went back to sleep.

The next morning I saw Ming and he was bright awake. I asked him how was his sleep and his reply
"Dammit ... I was so happy last night after the match.. I couldn't sleep!!! I actually CRIED when they won the match!!! "

I just nodded when he went on to say
"Eh I think I'm going to Moscow to watch the finals".He eventually went and lucky for him, Man Utd won the finals.

Story 2: Conference Call

We were having a regional conference call with some potential business partners when suddenly the topic of football came up between Ming and a guy that I'm going to refer to here as John.

The conversation went like this.

Ming: OH I didn't know you're a football fan too!!!

John: Yeah man! I am.. HUGE FAN!

Ming: Who do you support?

John: I support the Gunners. Arsenal.

Ming: WHAT?!?! YOU JUST WENT DOWN ONE BROWNIE POINT ON MY LIST MY FRIEND!!!
Story 3: LIVERPOOL VAN

This just happened last week.

I was down in Singapore and had just had dinner with Ming and some of our friends. We just got out of an elevator to go into the carpark when suddenly he saw a HUGE RED VAN.

On the red van was a HUGE Liverpool Football Club video with the line "You'll Never Walk Alone".

The van looked like it was plastered with this all over.
The minute Ming saw that he started cursing away
"LOOK AT THIS COCKSTER!!! COME PARK RIGHT HERE IN FRONT OF ME ALSO... C*BAI NABEH!!! MOTHERF*CKING LOSER!!! NO WONDER HE'S DRIVING A VAN!!!"

To Goldfinger and RockingDandy: It's ok. I'll smack Ming for you both!!!

Ming, don't show up at our place unless you dedicate a shrine to Liverpool.
Goldfinger will squash you flat.

Well, it is normal for ManU to curse Liverpool.. Wait til you hear the Liverpool fans curse the ManU ones...

Oh I forgotten.. In fact everyone from the EPL curses ManU and not only Liverpool...

Just that ManU as a club plus its fans are such a sore loser to see a successful club as in Liverpool with 18 Premier League and 5 European Champions League titles to its name.

Muah hahahaha...

Hmmp. I think it's quite normal for a football fan to react the way that he does. Might I add, he's not really that obsessed, I've seen worst, when everything is about ManU ManU, from cars to house, bedroom, the decoration is just, omg, clothing, etc. ManU ManU. ManU sucks! Gunners rock on! My second choice would either be Liverpool or Chelsea. ManU, nah. Sibeh boh chun. Think they're so much better than other clubs, treat others with no respect. Ceh.

BrYAn said...

HAHAHA LMAO!! im an Arsenal fan! The Gunners rock socks! (: (: (:

Simon Seow said...

Yeah. He showed me his ticket to Champions League final here when I went to Nuffnang SG's office. I also support ManU but not as fanatic as Boss Ming la.

Wayne K. said...

I've supported the Devils since 98/99 and never looked back since. People still say I've jumped the bandwagon but that was the year they lost the title to the Gunners. (practically i should support gunners rite then?)...but no, United proved to be better the following season...

Don't have any problems with other clubs, I admire they're players and style sometimes, and wished they played for United instead. But I do have a particular bone to pick with Chelsea, coz I really think they're stupid to think the power of money would bring in the titles, and Morinho, u don't know how happy I was when he was sacked ^_^

Oh yea, Liverpudians always rant about their past, but oh well, it's in the past, rite? U guys should win things NOW lo. I bet I'll be saying that when Fergie leaves....sigh.

I've been a football fan for 15 years and I find that Man Utd fans in Malaysia seem to hate other clubs for no real reason. Everytime they diss other clubs and their fans, they just go on and on about how retarded they are without actually explaining why they're retarded. However, I think that most of them don't genuinely hate other clubs, which is good. I guess most Man Utd fans need to come up with one solid reason for their apparent hatred, or just grow up.

For the record, I am a Liverpool fan and I support all clubs in their endeavours.

Gunners forever!!!!

I once refuse to let someone into my car because he was wearing a Manure jersey. He had to go change his shirt first. BUAHAHAHAHAHA.

ManU fan ah so called,

Not long after ManU won the treble, Liverpool made a (man i dont even know how to call it) 5 title sweep in 1 season under houllier ok...

They won the FA Cup, League Cup, UEFA Cup, European Super Cup and Charity Shield... And they went on to win the Champions League the next season under Penis-tez..

If I recall correctly, ManU cant even beat Zenit St Petersburg...

Muahahaha...

Orange Armada Inc. said...

RealGunners said...

wtf! i'm on john's side! i'm a gunners after all~ thank buddha i'm on nuffnang m'sia and not sg XD

Brenda Ang said...

a-the-rian: I totally agree with you. I support the gunners, but have no hatred towards other clubs. But MU's supporters man, they like to pick fights, dissed, etc etc with fans from other clubs. That just pisses me off.

A-The-Rian said...

Anselm: yea... its called the Mickey Mouse Treble... But still I can never forget the goal Fowler scored against Birmingham and the UEFA Cup Final match.

Brenda: Next time you come across a fan, any EPL fan, who disses other clubs, just ask "why the hatred?" That should wake him/her up. I haven't come across someone like that in a long time because no one watches soccer here...

ACCYEE said...

yes i do notice that manu fans feel the need to trash other teams.. being a Blue supporter, i get all kinds of shit that really tick me off all the time.
i say, support who u want to, and may the better team win...

Anselm said...

I guess the greatest comeback wudnt be ManU vs Bayern Munchen...

Since I am a Liverpool fan, the greatest comeback from Liverpool was the game against Olympiakos in the UCL 2nd grp stage final game..

The greatest comeback goal in that game was the goal that Gerrard scored.. hell, it was deafening... I had to turn down the volume because that commentator, Martin Tyler (my favorite) was shouting like a crazy person..

A-The-Rian said...

Anselm: I swear I replayed the Gerrard-Olympiakos goal 100 times over but I think the greatest comeback is the Champions League final vs AC Milan, also the FA Cup Final vs West Ham where Gerrard cracked a goal from fucking 30 meters away.

Liverpool has plenty of crazy comebacks.
