I was 8 years Old playing for my school team in cotton T-shirts when One my friends Dad came to watch School games wearing a Red Jersey with Beckham Written on it.
Later i spoke to my friend saying your dad's T-Shirt was Awesome.
He said its of a player who scored from Half way and plays for Manchester United, they are currently the best team in England.

I was like, how can i watch this team play as we didn't have a Television set, i told my dad about this and he was like we'll buy a TV soon.
For Two years my dad saved money to buy a second hand Television, i don't remember which was the first game i saw, but ever since that day
i have hardly missed any game. The more i saw the more i fell in love with this team.
We never lost a game, we just ran out of time, the belief of never losing a game was always there in sight.
This club had everything that a Kid looks out for when he is growing up.
Had some really wonderful moments as a Fan and things are really tough these days but nothings going to change our love for this team.
Just need to remember why we started loving this team so much.

Are all the stories enough for my Kid to follow the same love as i do, we will rise back from where we are and get on top soon?

I am already ready with the stories anyways :P

Busby babes.

We were bound to experience a down patch.

ED002 warned us that we might have to expect not qualifying for European football.

As a fan, I realise we have been spoilt we the success we've had under SAF.

Onwards and forwards (backwards for now) . It's like trying to hold onto a mechanical bull ;)

I started supporting in August 68, I don’t remember anything before that. For years until 1976 I lived off stories of the Babes, the greatness of Charlton Law Best and Edwards. The TV was black and white and there were no Premier League years to reminisce on. I watched the fading glory of the three greatest players of the era. I watched Charlton retire, Law go to City, I was there when Law backheeled in 74, I was there one day to see Georgie walk on the pitch. It was all downhill, yet my late brother assured me things would get better. I trusted him like your lad will trust you. It was a badge of honour to support when we were garbage, to live through times when City and Liverpool were better. Keep the faith and he will.

Brilliant little post red man, that's what a supporter does.

Beck's I can't get my head around you hadn't a TV untill 1998,
Now I know things can be hard for some families and I can identify with that, and I'm not in any way judging you or anyone i'm not in to that sort of things.
By the way I remember watching that goal like it was yesterday, you just knew a good player had to come out of that moment.

Leahy12, yeah everyone has hard times but we fight through it. That's what we do at UTD.

Great stories! Mine is less interesting but still my story. I was about 11 years (93/ 94) when going for a long drive with my folks and the radio station was tuned into a Utd game. Had no idea who we were playing and all i knew about Utd was it is a football team. All i kept hearing on the radio was Keane this and Keane that (wins the ball, what a tackle etc) and then a name i found funny at that age, 'Butt gets the ball' 'what a pass by Butt'. Utd won the match dominantly and I started asking my folks about utd during that drive but they were not of much help, so i started reading about the team, watching highlights of matches because we hardly ever got live games at that time in my neck of the woods. But i will never forget that radio commentary and how that got me hooked to this great team!
