We must be tolerant and patient with poor little ABUs. Their life is not easy as it seems, especially as it is of a cruelly cyclical nature. Just think about it.
At the start of every season, they are rubbing their hands with glee, writing off United. They say our squad is ordinary, our manager is poor tactically and our fans make no noise at all. Besides, Chelsea will now win the league, after all, they have a new manager again! And there are Arsenal, too, who play the Best Football Ever Played In Earth And Beyond and also have the Most Potential and The Brightest Future so now is the time we're gonna finish fifth, as Liverpool are So Strong and who knows what Spurs and some others might do.
And initially, it seems they might have some joy. More often than not United start slowly, having tons of early injuries, not playing particularly well. Meanwhile, the rivals start amazingly as the lesser lights in the league buy into the pre-season hype surrounding them and surrender even before kick-off.
But then, sometimes around December or January, things change. United settle down a little, start to win regularly while other clubs suddenly realize that Chelsea/Liverpool/Arsenal are not unbeatable, whatever the media might say. Still, the ABUs are smiling (well, the less experienced ones do, anyway), dismissing this as a temporary hitch.
And then, come March or April, they suddenly sink into despair when realizing that it's only 7 or 8 games left and United are top, again, in good form, again. After all the encouraging signs they experience that sinking feeling of 'same old, same old'. They find out that nothing has changed and it must be a brutal experience for them, longing for change, for unpredictability.
That's when they start spewing rubbish about referees conspiring to help United, 12th man, Fergie time, bullying the officials etc, the usual ABU crap. But I hope all you United fans see now that we have to be patient with them. After all, their life is not easy. Indeed, it is rather hard as they have to wait so long for a little joy and usually even that is taken away from the quickly. I pity them, honestly.
