    A nicely considered post and one I'm happy to respond to.

    I think I mentioned how much pleasure, even joy, I've received by following the Blades for what is now over 50 years. So many downs, but also those moments of celebration that somehow make it all worthwhile. Like this moment, when, under Chris Wilder's excellent management, we have risen from the depths of division one to where we now stand. Not bad is it, considering how little money CW has had, and how, with a very few mistakes along the way, Wilder has steered us to a pivotal point of the season.

    If football means so much to you then so be it, and damn my 'calm rationality' ;). I jest of course, but your passion for the Blades is to be admired, and the same applies to your family to. My post that caused you to write was entirely to do with the OP's spite and unpleasantness, and why exactly football, or any other activity that is meant to bring enjoyment, can turn some people in to idiots that consider veiled nonsense a pleasure in itself. None of which I wrote was to demean your reasons for following the Blades. If you have a greater intensity for following United, well done sir. I just don't share your passion to that extent. It doesn't mean that I won't get involved, sometimes even consumed, by what happens to the Blades, but it's just that I have other interests that are as important to me. I don't think either approach is of greater or lesser value. I hope you'l accept this for what it is, my belief that it takes all kinds to make a club what it is.

    A horse race? That's the only time you'd use a capital letter, unless of course you want to look stupid.

    A football derby is a game between close local rivals. You have none.

    They have always tried to tag along to the Man U but they don’t even acknowledge them

    When they won in December it was like someone had demolished a building the amount of rats that scurried out of the darkness to contact me taking the piss. No doubt they’ll swarm out again today if they win again.

    I've only realised quite recently that they all sound just like Keith Lemon.

    I'm not sure why people are getting so wound up. The OP wasn't particularly bad or provocative, a bit of humour thrown in along the way, I thought.

    Can I just be the first to wish the OP luck in the play-offs. But not necessarily good luck :rolleyes:
