I accept this was further enhanced through the likes of George Best and the like, but it must have started somewhere.

I cant imagine there were too many Man Utd fans living outside Manchester
pre Munich 1958..... ?


Do you suppose Chelsea fans only live in Chelsea?

Man or the Club??

Ps Professor Ellis Cashmore, is a good read on the impact of Man U on society.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.......what did you have in mind babeeeh ?

I lived in Benhavis, Costa Del Sol for a few years; then Scotland; then just outside Miami before UAE-the Reds are everywhere in numbers.
Exactly my point.....they are bloody everywhere, and 99.9% per cent of thm have never been within 100 miles of Old Trafford......They just support a brand because they have been brainwashed by global marketing !!

Its not a 'brand' its friggin 'Roy of the Rovers'......Can you get your head out of cutting a deal (what do you do in Doobye? say 'sell timeshare' and I am so not speaking to you) and think sport...............
So I have never been to Rio,can I not love Pele???
Sport? yes caught up in branding.....The Club has to meet the demands of the fans;Have you ever heard of Freuchie Cricket Club?
Tell me where smaller clubs could 'up' their ground spec to the conditions health and safety imposed on them after Ibrox;after Hillborough?
Not every ground has Harrods in the backyard like Craven Cottage or Delia dishing up dozens of millions and the best pies since Jeffrey Archer's Shepherds at the Canaries Club
