Stick it somewhere where the…
SO, that bus stop in Kentish Town pictured a couple of posts back?
There was something wrong with it and most of you guessed what it was. Some loon had stuck a ‘Love United, Hate Glazer’ sticker to it, a impotent protest about the ownership of Manchester United.
I mean: This is NW5, not up north. It’s proof once again that too many people living in London are failing to support their local team. We call them glory supporters.
What does anybody care about politics at football club in Manchester – and what possible advantage would the person who stuck this sticker to the bus stop think could be gained by protesting on Kentish Town Road? Malcolm Glazer wasn’t going to see it. Not unless he has a coca-cola in the Assembly House every now and then..
The truth about all of those United fans who protest about the American ownership of their club and wear yellow and green scarves is simple. Their complaint suddenly drops in volume when their club is top of the league. If they are in fourth place, it’s all because of Glazer. If they are in first place, no moans can be heard. Funny that.
Oh, and if you live in Camden… support a local team whydontcha?
