Would you like me to change it?

The article's 6 years old, but it never ages......

Man Utd fans back HS2 for making it easier to get from London to Manchester

Man Utd fans back HS2

According to Simon Williams, secretary of MUFC Season Ticket Holders Guild, “This new rail line will make access to home games so much easier for our members.”

“Currently it takes me over three hours to get from Wimbledon to Old Trafford on match days, add in a couple of hours at the ground and the return journey and that’s basically the whole day gone.

“The new high-speed route will cut about an hour out of each journey, making it far more feasible for fans from Man Utd strongholds such as Tunbridge Wells and Hemel Hempstead to make the trip.

“Without doubt, the possibility of travelling up in a Eurostar-style first class compartment would appeal to your average Man Utd fan.

“If they can provide some sort of Lexus-only parking at Euston, that would be even better.”

Asked to consider the negative aspects of the proposal, Williams was concise, “The only downside I can envisage is that eating on the train might result in a fall in demand for prawn sandwiches at the ground.

“But I’m sure the club could balance the books by introducing another kit or something.”

It does make you wonder if thousands of Mancunians or those say in a surrounding 30 mile radius all moved down Sarf for jobs and better pay or just that the Sarf has shit teams so they need to travel Oop North to see decent football.
I don't think for one moment you are suggesting they are glory hunting fans who in 2 seasons will be following Liverpool instead.

I was thinking the former. They need those high-paying jobs to be able to afford the prawn sandwiches and the kit prices these days.

You're damn right it'll be appealed.....

Manchester City banned from European club competitions for two seasons by Uefa

Manchester City have been banned from European club competition for the next two seasons after being found to have committed "serious breaches" of Uefa's club licensing and financial fair play regulations.The reigning Premier League champions have also been fined 30m euros (£25m).

The decision is subject to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The fact Leterme elected to smear Citeh on the day of the Treble triumph is telling.
I didn't think it was old news when I posted that link earlier. I mean, it wasn't a new case...what it was, was something very damning about revelations since the original deal.

You may remember there was a relatively recent report - maybe in the daily mail? - that it had all been resolved and nothing was going to happen.

That new bit of information in the article I posted suggested that was far from the case and this latest news confirms it.

I stand by what I said, hatchet job and heading for a proper impartial hearing. Please note point above about hacker who provided new info....

Isn't that a bit of a smokescreen? The guy has been inn custody since March last year and was charged with a bunch of offences last September.

It looks like a day between the two announcements after losing some sort of appeal too.
