An open letter from Malcolm Glazer to Man Utd fans everywhere ;
Dear Soccer fans,
As you all know, i've been looking to buy the United's of Manchester for a
little while now. I've also heard that some of you may not be too happy
about me using, sorry, buying the club in order to reach new heights and
also, that I may not be a fan.
Well fear not, as i'm writing this personal letter to let you know that
i'm a genuine fan of you blue devils.
I began rooting for the United's back in 1992 when our little Malcolm JR
was practising those Soccer home runs out in the yard. I loved the way you
turned defence into offence, and the way that Bobby Shearer used to top
half it into the goal bag. Oh man, that play was hot. My son tells me that
you even out-zoned your City rivals Southampton in the 4th quarter of the
FA World series.
As for your current team, that Rude guy is awesome!!!! I see a profitable
future at the United, with the young talent of Cristiano Rooney (man, that
guy can dance!) and Peter Shilton giving us hope in defeating the evil
Russian tyranny which assaults the freedom of our beloved Soccer.
With the marketing potential of those Neville brothers and that Pearce
Dude leading the team, we can all look to acheiving our beliefs of a better
future. Especially when I add Alexei Lalas and Cobi Jones to the starting
Now to you, the fans.
I've been to see the United's play once before, and the respect you pay
your team in silently admiring the play out on the pitch was overwhelming.
Because of this, i've just purchased a new £45 million mansion in the
Manchester to be close to you guys. And more good news is i'm planning to
add an extra 10,000 seats through corporate boxes so more genuine blue
devils can experience the play.
What's with the prawn sandwiches I had to eat when I was there? Well, Rest
assured, it'll be super size prawn baguettes when I take charge.
I can't wait to come over to the Manchester isles, as I love the country,
especially the beaches and the hot chicks.
I hope you can all see my vision of this future, with new shirt sponsors
(Dunkin Donuts) and new team name (The Manchester Gloom) i'm sure things
are looking bright.
Further good news for you guys is that i've just agreed a partnership deal
with McDonalds, who will help in promoting the Manchester brand. This will
involve re-naming the stadium to 'McTrafford' as well as an exciting launch
of Manchester Gloom plastic fan toys in every happy meal.
Cristiano Rooney will be the face of this campaign and during this, he
will be marketed globally as Roonald McDonald.
Take care dudes.
