If you spend more than 2 minutes in almost any thread, you'll come across mentions of how we're treated differently by any number of parties: refs, journalists, pundits, ex-pros and so forth. A lot of this is just fans being fans, but I feel like a reasonably intelligent, old(er) person who can be objective: we definitely aren't given any 'rub of the green'. Instead of citing examples (cause seriously, there are loads) I feel like the club should have a strategy to deal with it. For example: 1. Get more ex pros into major punditry positions, and have them be just as shamelessly biased as the other ex pros. If I were a neutral listening to Owen Hargreaves, or Martin Keown, or Jamie Redknapp I would start to think United had spent more money than any club, benefited from more bad decisions than any other club, were hugely underachieving and were about 10th in the league. We need to get some pro-United balance in there. The only United players outside of Neville allowed to speak on Sky appear to be those happy to criticize us (hi Scholsey!) 2. Go on a f*cking charm offensive with the media. Have media appreciation days. Give out free truffle risotto to the press viewing areas. Hand out fleece blankets when it's cold. Invite their kids to see the players. Send em friggin Ubers to get em to the games. Basically, be just as disgustingly opaque about bribing their bias as City do. Remember: the media can't help itself to write enough positive articles about a club whose sole existence is make the public forget that their owners are responsible for actual deaths. And they're the 'good guys' in the UK. Why do you think that is? Because journalists are disgusting, unethical people who like nice things, and we need to abuse that fact. 3. Ham up the history, and use the power of nostalgia. Get puff pieces out about Fergie once a month. Get agents to give exclusive of today's new players meeting old ones and posing with the trophies. Have lovely boyhood shots of Lingard, Rashford, McTominay etc bleeding everywhere. Have a friggin clock with the minutes since we last didn't have a youth product in the squad. Make us the 'good' guys. It seems we're all relegated to the ABU media being a fact of life, but PR and comms is a profession for a reason. As good as we are international presence, I believe a better domestic campaign would - most importantly - deliver us some actual benefit on the pitch.
