Un suporter zice pe forumul oficial al lui United:
Why we dont refer to our Awesome Club as ManU
Man Utd is not a term United fans refer to themselves as. The term is only used by other supporters as a complete and utter insult to our club. The "u" is meant to be "you" by the rival fans.
An early example of its usage is this chant by West Brom fans: "Duncan Edwards is manure, rotting in his grave, man you are manure- rotting in your grave". The origin of "Man Utd" is a song to insult the dead Duncan Edwards. Liverpool and Leeds fans copied this with their own man you /u versions to insult all of the lads who died at munich.
"Man Utd Man Utd went on a plane Man Utd Man Utd never came back again" and "Man Utd Never Intended Coming Home" (if you combine the first letter of each word you get the word "munich").
I hope this makes it clearer that saying Man Utd is an insult, particularly to the older supporters and to see United fans using it now is shameful. I hope a few might read this, understand and spread the word. So... Please REFRAIN from using this term ever again!!!!!!!!
Acum, cea mai tare faza: MANUTD.COM e site-ul oficial al clubului!!!
Asta se intampla la toate echipele: "Frate, a zis de Haldan, ii rup capu', sa moara mama!" va suna cunoscut? Ne-a prostit libertatea.
