“Man U”

September 3, 2009


As my 1st post I decided to make this my 1st post! I see to many people these days saying “Man U”  Its not a term fans use anymore! And I’ll explain to you why ;

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 “ManU” 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.

“ManU ManU went on a plane ManU ManU never came back again”


“ManU 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 manU is an insult, United fans using it now is shameful. I hope a few might read this, understand….

    Totally agree with aig. Most articles in India refer to Man United as “Man U” . Christ, they even write back page headlines in big bold letter with the words “Man U win blah blah”. Methinks all those editors must be Pool or Leeds supporters. Although that would be difiicult, since a lot of people in India dont even know who Leeds are.

    Off topic: There is a typo in the website logo, mate. “Latest News” has been spelt “Lates news”. Or maybe its a new fad 😉
