Football United bringing the words 'Football Club' back to their badge

United bringing the words 'Football Club' back to their badge

Manchester United want to restore the words ‘Football Club’ to their club badge after 15 years, in the hope of dispelling the image that the Glazers are only interested in United as a business rather than their history as one of England’s great sporting institutions.

Owner Joel Glazer is behind plans to change the badge again after the football reference was removed in a re-design in 1998. New chief executive Ed Woodward has confirmed United have reservations about the current badge which was launched seven years before the Glazers bought the club.

‘I didn’t like that change of badge,’ said Woodward. ‘Joel didn’t like that change. We will look at that and have a think about that. We are a football club, not a business.'

Needed to look back further than that...say perhaps to the Munich disaster and certain takeover bid date coincidences etc.

Should just put "NYSE: MANU" on the badge. It'd be more honest.

"They're not the club they were when I was jibbing into the Stretty, Avi. Sucking the corporate c**k."

This has got Woodward written all over it

How can I endear myself to the fans, sign a top class midfield player?
Nah that's not going to happen, I'll just get "Football Club" put back on the badge
The fans will be eating out of the palm of my hand

In fairness whatever the motive being it, it would be great to have Football Club back on the badge

Does this make everyone happy? Pretty sure we're getting this instead of Fabregas/Bale.
