Football fandom is something that should be taken seriously as religion as Green Street Hooligans proved to us. The team you support shouldn’t change over time to accommodate who’s winning trophies, you stick with your side even if they didn’t win a trophy for nine godawful years.
Following the matchup between Manchester United and Everton, the poor showing of Maroune Fellaini and tactics of Jose Mourinho weren’t the only talking points from the match.

As well as this, everyone seems to be losing their mind of a Chelsea fan repping a different kind of Blues at Goodison Park.
At first thought, it’s rather odd to be wearing the colours of neither of the teams playing in the match, but shouts out to Emily Rogawski for supporting her club.
The reason of being at the game to watch “quality footballers” is a bit sketchy. Manchester United and Everton is fun and all, but traveling back to London would of been preferred to watching Fellaini bottle it in his 100th appearance for the club. Good effort though.
But enough of Fellaini’s shit play, back to Rogawski.
The fan might be getting stick for her loyalty to her club on social media and news outlets, but it would a bit different if it were another supporter, say some bloke who is a little less attractive wore the colours of his Blues to Goodison Park and the result would be that he was booed from the stadium or had the shit beaten out of him.

The consequences for a man and woman differ greatly in this case and each suffer their own troubles when faced with loyalty over getting abused by other fans. Miss Rogawski can be accused of just being just a pretty face and not knowing a damn thing about football while a man would be called a wanker and violence would ensue.
In either case, it takes balls to wear your team’s colours at another ground, let alone a ground where your team isn’t even playing. But this shouldn’t become a recurring theme or else English Hooligans will rise again and shit will just get out of hand.
Take a trip down memory lane of the 12 greatest Man United moments…
Everyone can remember that chip against Sunderland from King Eric. Everything about the goal, the flight time of the ball to the celebration of the Frenchman was nothing short of poetry. The look from United’s no. 7, and the hoist of the collar just about summed up the football renegade in 30 seconds. Image Source: Twitter
If people ask, are Liverpool, Man United’s greatest rivals? You only have to look as far as that Gary Neville celebration against the Merseyside club. Whether he was right or wrong, you couldn't help but let out a wry smile when G Nev celebrated in front of the Liverpool fans. It led to the United captain being charged £5,000. But, who could blame the right-back? Rio Ferdinand’s last-minute winner against Liverpool, no doubt made the fine well worth it. Image Source: Twitter

’20, times, 20 times…’
This is an odd choice, but one Man United fans may never forget. The Reds were 3-0 down at Old Trafford, to LIVERPOOL, under David Moyes. Could there be a worst case scenario? You'd usually expect to hear a load of Mancs swearing to the away end, or ripping their chairs out. However, the Stretford End instead sang ’20 times, 20 times…’ for around 10 solid minutes. An amazing moment, in which history and tradition outweighed getting turned over 3-0 by the biggest enemy on home soil. Incredible. Image Source: Twitter
Welcome to 'Fergie Time'. The old boy was known for his ferocious watch-tapping as he chumps on the gum harder than a raver at some grimy festival. Big Stevie Bruce’s winner against, Sheffield Wednesday, seven minutes after the whistle had gone, to clinch the title, is the best possible introduction to the famous 'Fergie Time'. Brian Kidd’s celebration on the touchline wasn’t bad either. Image Source: Twitter
Who could ever forget the Scot's famous line in 1995, “You'll never win anything with kids”. We often see pundits eat their own words, but nothing has quite topped Hansen’s rant, followed by the infamous line. How wrong the pundit could be, as the ‘kids’ went on to a memorable title.

Man United 8, Arsenal 2

One of the ‘kids’. The one leading the pack with a new haircut every day. That weekend against Wimbledon, the golden curtains decided to score one of the most famous Premier League goals ever. Image Source: Twitter
After Fergie coined the blue-half of Manchester, the Noisy Neighbours, what better way to silence them through a Liverpool legend - step up, Michael Owen. Image Source: Twitter
To be fair to Arsenal, the ‘2004 Invincibles’ was probably the best ever Premier League team. To go a whole season undefeated, highlighted the balance and brilliance Wenger had at his disposal. However, all that had to come to an end, and of course, it was at Old Trafford. The 2-0 victory for the Red Devils ended in real drama, with Cesc Fabregas, throwing Pizza at the United boss, and about a 22-man brawl in the tunnel. They don’t make rivalries like this anymore!

Fergie’s last game at Old Trafford won’t be remembered as a classic, a 2-1 victory against Swansea. But the guard of honour, to the boss’s speech was an overwhelming occasion for United fans. A real moment of history at Man United, as the league waved goodbye to its greatest ever manager. Image Source: Twitter
