What's this all about? The site wont let me post the link, but it's from an interview from redcafe in 2005.
Full interview itself is very funny, though. Barney going on about the team and funny stories. But what the hecks Steve talking about? Sarcasm or meant nothing by it at all? I'm from the USA. So I dunno the history about the team or the players past (was he a bad player or was previously on a bad team?... hence the comment context?) The Iraqi part comes across very wrong. Dont wanna use the term racist, but comes across wrong and un-Steve-like. Kinda took me aback. But it also says it's from a translation, so maybe that got skewed...anyone have the original?
Does he mean that the Iraqi teams are typically shit (or so I was told, but I know nothing), but ironically having a member in their team actually helped them?

Which teams do you support?

Stephen Morris Macclesfield Town

Bernard Sumner Manchester Utd.

SM I'm from Macclesfield originally. It's a dirty little town south of Manchester. The team's in the Second Division, and frankly they're pretty bad… they even have an Iraqi player in the squad. Not that it means anything, mind you. Last year, they had a good spell. Four or five victories on the trot. The fans were chuffed. I can hear the stadium from my house, and they never stop singing. The media talked about us a bit then, and especially when the Iraqi arrived… But since then it's been calm. Life has gone back to normal in Macclesfield… sad.

BS Me, I grew up in Salford, a suburb of Manchester.

SM Wow, yet another United supporter who doesn't come from Manchester…

BS Salford-Manchester, it's ten minutes, Stephen. Ten minutes on foot! Salford is Manchester. And, if you really want to know, I was born in a hospital in the centre of town. We've got to kill this myth: there are as many United supporters as City supporters in Manchester. People from the north of the town support City, and those from the south support United. It's as simple as that, the division is historic… Salford is north-west of Manchester, so I support United. It's easy… "
