the only acceptable nomenclature is Manchester United Football Club or if you want to be brief Manchester United F.C.

I've never heard that Man U thing before.

Do United fans really find it offensive?

A lot do I believe. I personally don't find it offensive, but it has been brought up numerous times in this cesspool over the years and is generally ignored.

I only remember Kanbei mentioning it....ever....and chalky said most people use it so it's not too bad. I still think the explanation is a bit odd but I'll try and stop if people are actually upset by it.

"Try". Wow, well I guess you have to not say two little words but I'm sure you can manage.

I had a search as I wondered where this had come from. Seems to be made up.

I’ve been typing Manu for 20 years, I said ‘try’ incase I make a mistake. Don’t be a pleb.

I was also researching this because I found it very surprising. All I could find was a load of posts on Quora about Manchester United being "family" and "love"and how any true MUFC supporter wouldn't dare besmirch Duncan Edwards, then I found the Red Cafe post Sykes posted.

I absolutely love the fact that you have a load of English Mancs getting their knickers in a twist because of some shite made up by fans in Asia to make them sound like "proper" fans. Love it. Kevin Keegan love it.

Certainly wouldn't surprise me. It's often mentioned with "true fan" mentioned.

If it's made up then it's made up, I confess I'd just taken it to be true based on previous discussions and the general acceptance of the origin.

Can we get a different mod to look into this? Photek might not get treated fairly when you learn which teams tragedy he was tarnishing.
