Yes.

Everyone but Manutd fans hate Scholes.

He's a nasty, scheming, dirty bastard.

Beckham was only hated because of Argentina, though that changed completely after the Greece game. Scholes has never been hated by the masses. Obviously Liverpool/Leeds fans hate him, though for some reason City fans have always been positive towards him.

Gary Neville and Roy Keane were hated though. So was Phil Neville, because he was Gary's brother

In general the United hate peaked around 2000 because of the dominance + Beckham at the WC + the decision to not play in the FA Cup.

edit:

Van Nistlerooy pissed a lot of people off as well, because he scored against everyone. Plus whichever way people look at it, the media did genuinely paint Arsenal as being the good and United the evil, partly because they're a London club but also because of the managers. Wenger has always been really friendly with journos whilst SAF never went a day without telling them to fuck off. Part of the whole 'siege mentality' stuff. Same with Vieira + Keane.

Strange how it went the opposite way in 06/07. United had a media wankathon all season.

To be fair I barely remember that team, I don't know who was in defence between Ferdinand and Stam, I don't know who partnered RVN, don't know the LB. Barthez in goal?

The team with Van Nistelrooy, Veron, and Blanc was awesome. Beckham was great back then as well but it got annoying when he became a brand. That was the 2001-2003 team.

From what I remember, United played better football back then. For some reason to me they're just ugly since post 2008 Champions League win. Just so unattractive, with ugly football and punks like Anderson, Nani, and Ashley Young.

And the transition team in from 2004-2006 was just god awful. Djemba-Djemba, Kleberson, David Bellion... puke.

03 team:

--------------------Barthez----------------------

Neville-----Ferdinand------Silvestre----O'Shea

-------------Keane-------Butt/Veron-----------
Beckham----------Scholes--------------Giggs

-----------------Van Nistlerooy--------------


Guys like Brown, Blanc, P.Neville, Forlan played a lot too. Forlan was another player who got negative attention. He wasn't hated, but it was one of those situations where he couldn't score to save his life so every week people were taking the piss.

We replaced Jaap Stam with a 36 year old Laurent Blanc at the start of 01/02

Yep. The football we play these days is hard to watch.

Henry shits all over Van Nistelrooy.

but the Dutchman was one of the cooler ManUre players of the past decade no doubt.

Arsenal-ManUre classic matches back then is what a big match should be like in the EPL.

not 6-1, 8-2, 5-3 bullshit.

That was the cool Ruud. Inferior only to Pippo.



Veron. Pure elegance.



Beckham at his peak.

Now THAT was a team to watch. Were good in the Champions League as well... semis exist to Leverkusen in 2002 and the epic battle vs Real in 2003.

United fan, remember the 5-3 comeback vs Newcastle?

btw, something that i always wanted to ask but always forgot - can you please kindly describe the Yorke-Cole partnership? like which one was the support striker?

i was too young to remember anything back then.
