No Name Change

No Name Change

Our noisy-neighbours may well have scooped a massive windfall by hawking the naming rights to their stadium but it doesn`t look like United will be following them down the same route.

Commenting on the proposed naming of the Etihad Stadiumm Sir Bobby Charlton had this to say to the media,

"I don`t think it will happen with us. When teams in lower divisions are short of cash, then fair do`s."

"But I can only say that it`s not our policy to change the name of Old Trafford. It`s too important."


Sir Bobby may very well have a point but who knows what the future holds, after all who`d have ever predicted that the club would be owned by Americans a few years back!

To be honest I think we should consider it, we would easily get a better deal then City. We will still all call it Old Trafford so who cares if it ain't officially called it. Would go a long way to clearing our debts.

I wouldn't expect Old Toilet to be renamed, just as noone would have dared rename Maine Road, Anfield, Goodison etc. The point is that the traditional old grounds simply can't be renamed, but newly built grounds are ripe for the change. If you ever left old toilet I'd expect you to move to the "Nike Arena" or some such, just as Liverpool will move to a sponsorred stadium when they move. So get down off your high horses, this is a total non-issue. Nice to see you're talking about us YET AGAIN, but hey, your not worried, oh no.

Everything seems commercial now-a-days and with the Glazers owning pretty much everything to do with the club it wouldn't surprise me if we did end up arriving for home games at the Nike Arena :P It's nice to keep some tradition in an otherwise plastic world but too be blunt, if the long term financial security of the club was secured by the club selling it's name i'd be all for it. They can change it's name but they can't stop me calling it Old Trafford.

The fans will always call the stadium Old Trafford regardless of corporate interests.

Just out of interest, why is it taking so long for Sralex and David Gill to complain about our new sponsorship deal? Wenger and John "Scouser" Henry have already spoken out, it's not like Gill and Ferguson to be anywhere but the head of the queue when it comes to bandwagon jumping.

You can't be serious fcb. Why would you ask that question? Do you want them to encourage an enquiry into your club then? Why on Earth would we be even remotely concerned about what goes on at City when we've seen 2 legends leave, 3 exciting new signings come in, pre-season just beginning and loads of transfer rumours surrounding our club? Maybe Fergie just doesn't give a 5hit, like everyone else who isn't Wenger and Henry (footballing world is larger than them two you know)?
