Hi, my name is Coconut Baron. I am from USA. Never been to any games, only have 5 jerseys, only supported after 1999 and think i am a true manchester united supporter. I never miss a game on tv and always on the internet a minute after fulltime. I live too far away to attend any matches. I guess that doesn't matter. Glory, Glory, Man Utd.

person hearing that thinks "pfft, what a glory hunter lol"

Someone who supports a team in the Premier League that is fashionable and/or very successful at the time. In recent times used in reference to a Chelsea fan due to their rapid success now they have loads of money from a dodgy Russian.
