I just think it's all about getting our own house in order, thing is people wanting another team to lose because your own team is
sh!te is something we have accused the toffee's of dong for years when they always wanted us to get beat regardless, now we are doing the same.
I just think whoever wins the league deserves to because the League sorts the the good, the bad and the ugly out over 9 months, yes you may get decisions against you during the course but you will also get them for you too.
The best way to stop teams like United going further away or teams like Arsenal e.t.c. catching you up is to do something about it yourself and not rely on others to do you a favour.
Yes, the priority is to get one's own house in order and to win the thing ourselves. But nothing lasts for ever and it was always likely that we'd hit hard times. There's also no guarantee that we'll get back to the top. (and United will fall from the top one day too.)
So whilst we're not at the top it's only natural that we don't want our rivals to be there either isn't it? Surely it's just harmless, normal football rivalry. I wouldn't lose any sleep if United won the league but I'd feel a bit better if they didn't. wouldn't you?
If you still disagree, maybe just think of it as wanting our city brothers to win
Of course the league positions generally reflect performance over the season. But when the difference between teams is just a few points it means that they're as good or bad as each other, and things like luck or dodgy decisions will be the deciding factor as to which team finishes higher than the other. In this respect, I suspect that most people have accepted that United have had some critically decisive help from the refs this season.
