Manchester United: 10 Things the Media Doesn't Get About Red Devils

If you're a Chelsea, City, Arsenal or Liverpool supporter, you're going to hate this article.

It's time to lay one or two myths and bogeys to rest. Manchester United are the greatest and best supported, the most valuable football club and indeed sporting club with the most valuable sporting brand in the world.

Get used to it.

Manchester United get as much coverage as any club in the world—not always accurate. OK, so journos have to file copy—it's the same here—but for all the stories they concoct to get readers, there are some things they either don't seem or want to get.

It might be somewhat ironic writing an article like this when nobody really knows what goes on in Old Trafford except Sir Alex, his secretary David Gill and a few close confidants.

And OK, there's just as much opinion involved in this article as most. The difference is, it's written by someone who's followed United for 54 years and watches every single match at all levels, rather than someone who's on the lookout for copy—or controversy—and hates United anyway.
