Now you must be wondering what the heck I am doing talking about Manchester United on a Liverpool website. This weekend, Manchester United play Kaizer Chiefs in Cape Town, South Africa. Now, I live in Cape Town and the stadium they will be playing in is not too far from where I stay. It is not often, ‘top’ football teams come over to Cape Town to play soccer. All the Manchester United fans I know are really excited about seeing their team. Most of them only get the chance to see their team play on TV. I would feel the same if Liverpool were to ever come to Cape Town. So I was given the oportunity this week to go to the game tomorrow and see Manchester United play. But, I turned it down!

I thought to myself, would I really be able to watch the enemy play live? My hatred for Manchester United got the better of me and I realised there was no way I could go watch the game.  I hate Manchester United so much that I have turned down VIP tickets to watch them. I know some would say, just go and watch for the sake of it as a fan of soccer. I understand that, but some just do not realise how much my blood boils when I hear the name Manchester United, now what more actually seeing them play live! If it were any other team besides Manchester United, I probably would have gone to see them play.

On the other hand, I could have gone and said I was supporting Kaizer Chiefs but I have other issues with Kaizer Chiefs! I also can not stand them. The honest truth is, I used to be a fan of Kaizer Chiefs some years back when they were the best team in South Africa but over the last couple of years they just have not done it for me and thus I abandoned them. So now who do I want to win tomorrows game? I hope Kaizer Chiefs knock the stuffing out of Manchester United, that really would just make my weekend!
