It's United, not Man U!

Unread postby Richazey » 12 Apr 2011 09:45

If you didn't know it already, the term 'Man U' is one of the most offensive nicknames ever given to the club.

The term 'Man U' originates from an insulting song from our rivals Leeds. These people were supposedly Leeds fans but they were pretty sick human beings. They created a song which insulted all the men including Duncan Edwards who died in the Munich air disaster in 1958.

Our other rivals soon caught on and since then 'Man U' has been a nickname to cause offence to our people who lost their lives over 50 years ago.

These were the songs that they used:

"Man U, Man U, went on a plane! Man U, Man U, never came back again!"

"Man U, never intended in coming home!"

So you see, now you know never, EVER use this nickname again as it is an insult to the club you have forever loved.

If you hear anyone using the term 'Man U' please correct them and tell them to use one of the folliwing:

Manchester United
Man Utd
United
Red Devils

It was an initial song not about munich but just about Duncan sung by West Brom fans but then the scum more commonly known has Leeds United fans decided to sing such a disgraceful song aimed at Munich.

As I said I would here is the original:

A 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 u" 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 U Man U went on a plane Man U Man U never came back again"and.."Man U Never Intended Coming Home" (if you combine the first letter of each word you get the word "munich").

OH i get it now. So sorry guys, i really didn't know. Won't do it again, i never knew it was offensive. I just thought it was a short for their name. But so sorry. Respect to those who lost their lives 50 years ago. Sorry about it. Manchester United forever.
