Maybe it collapsed because Rafa sold his best players and replaced them with shitty ones?

Also I feel bad for you, supporting a club where second place is akin to winning the league

What's worse is when a fansbase acts like they're the shit for only winning 4 English titles in their entire history and going to only one CL final....and losing....lol

Somehow they have this innate idea that this "history" makes them superior to Man U and Liverpool. lolololol

****, Arsenal even has more blue blooded'ness in their left pinky than Chelsea does. lol

And why do you care about manchester united and liverpool football history? You arent from manchester. You aren't English, what is their history to you, you only like them because they are the team they show in the USA the most

You don't need a good reason to be a fan of a team. All it means to be a fan is to root for a team and not waver in your support.

But my reason (which I have stated before) is because my aunt is from Manchester and I did grow up with a bunch of Man U stuff being given to me and we always talked about them since I was 4-5 (when I started playing soccer).

Liverpool and Man U are tied with 17 (?) titles. That's how many titles Liverpool has...or did top tier soccer not exist in England before the Premier League? Looking at your lack of knowledge, you probably believe this to be true.

And why would I be mad at who Chelsea has? You're in fourth place. Man U is in first. lol

If your aunt was really from manchester why does she like United? Manchester United don't even play in manchester and the people in that place all support City. I have never met someone from Manchester who supports Manchester United, I dont think they exist

I asked about premier league titles sport, not league titles. L2R (learn 2 read)

Man Utd will meltdown and when Drogs and Lampard get healthy we will go on another tear, the league is ours.
