    great article, i never knew that manchester was such a city of rebellious footballers, good research, in my opinion thats what soccer in america is lacking, the big clubs wont get better unless we start getting some little clubs to supply players and passion

    I am a native Mancunian who has long lived in the south of England. Manchester has always been a melting pot of immigration, of assimilation and radicalism and I am proud of my roots. Which is why I am also a proud founder member of FC United, having been originally a Man United fan. As the author rightly reports, the Glazers were the final straw, not the cause of the schism between MU and FCUM. Dont get me wrong, I hate the Glazers with a passion, but they have released me from a bond I was increasingly unhappy with.

    Excellent article. Wish some of our denigrators at OT would see the light & do something about the face of Modern Football that cannot be allowed to continue (Well done Chester.) I’m a fan of MUFC but a supporter of FCUM. I too walked away when I saw the light. I’ll never go to OT again nor put one penny into Glazer’s (or any other fortune hunter) pocket until the club is returned to it’s rightful owners – the people of Manchester. We also need to see tha back of agents leeching their 10% out of clubs & therefore out of the game.

    FORZA FCUM – The Revolution will not be televised.
