united should have “you’ll never walk alone.” that way when they play at anfield it will feel like a home game and the players will be able to perform to a standard by where they only lose 4-0 instead of 7-0. a big goal difference swing.

Treated myself to the green home style retro shirt.

Going to look good with a pair of shorts on holiday.

Oh feck me. Yet Another Great Manchester Band Ruined by a Dickhead Lead Singer.
That's why we should go with Joy Division's Day of the Lords until we win a league title again. Ian Curtis isn't going to get sucked into conspiracy theories and culture wars.

Joy Division/New Order are my favourite Manchester band but even they had a few erm "issues" in their very early days, i always find its best not to dwell on these things.

Well despite the football being dross latley I personally loved the commercial. It is what the club is about IMO and I love the fact that our academy players (past and present) did the narration.
Oh and with that haircut Garnacho actually looks like a member of the Stone Roses :devil: .
As far as the music goes I already have a list and its basically three manc bands and every song is ok for an entrance:
1) The Stone Roses (this is the one obviously)
2) The Smiths (there is a light that never goes out)
3) Joy Division (new dawn fades on a rainy day against spanish opposition for a warm welcome)

At the hacienda I saw loads of great bands. New Order of course, Orange Juice, lloyd Cole and lots of others.

Probably the best gig at the Hacienda was The Eurythmic the day after Sweet Dreams shot to the top of the UK charts. Only a handful of tickets had been sold so when we arrived you could just walk up to the stage. Just before they came on the place started to fill with door sales and the place was full by the time they came on. They then played the whole of the first album. Excellent. Most annoyingly I didn't see The Smiths about the same time and it was cheap as chips.


I also remember seeing Simply Red in Alexandra Park in 1985 (I think it was). Despite hating Hucknall, who was the DJ at the Poly Bar and a complete tosser who won't play anything like New Order if you requested, that was pretty good.

Oddly, the best New Order gig I saw was at the Sydney Opera House in 2016. 4 rows from the front in a small venue and they played all the good stuff including some Joy Division songs. Ended With Love Will Tear Us Apart.
Sorry I ran out of my post limit so didn't get to respond.
That ticket stub you have is amazing. Fecking Kurtis Blow!? Wow. The Chameleons I already mentioned I love.
I like Orange Juice too.
Mad you got to see John Cale.
Shame about the Smiths, would give my left nut to have seen them.

Wonder if you ever saw Magazine live? They're one of my favourite Manc bands.

I shouldn't laugh at that but that's pretty solid WUM material.

I just read that Fergie wanted our song to be this:


Has a similar vibe to YAWN.

Haha, that's a good shout.
Alternative Joy Division suggestion: Decades.
Because, ya know at this rate...

And very relevant lyrics to the long-suffering United players and fans:

"Here are the young men, the weight on their shoulders
Here are the young men, well where have they been?
We knocked on the doors of Hell's darker chamber
Pushed to the limit, we dragged ourselves in
Watched from the wings (cue Rashford dribbling into no man's land) as the scenes were replaying
We saw ourselves now as we never had seen
Portrayal of the trauma and degeneration
The sorrows we suffered and never were free"

Any Smiths song would probably do as well like "Heaven knows I'm miserable know" or "Stop me if you think you've heard this one before".

No, which was very annoying as Real Life is still one of my top 5 albums.
Oh and I forgot that Real Life has "The Light Pours out of me".
Might be one of the best songs of all time (in my book).
Although it has that guitar riff which sounds like that track by that nonce, you know who I'm talking about...

One of my all time favorite tracks.

But I didn't know Jimmy Saville made music ;)

Ian Brown is big United fan, often used to be at matches. Mani the bassist also.

Gary Neville chose 'This Is The One' as the team entrance music when he was captain.

Ian Brown sang it live on the pitch before Neville's testimonial and it's still our entrance music today.
This.

Which singers are model citizens with stainless record?

To each their own, but alas, if someone would start boycotting all singers that are bonkers, or morally and ethically questionable, mouthpieces of bloody tyrants, racist, alleged child molesters (Michael Jackson, anybody?), violent, former criminals, just outright annoying assholes, and the list goes on... there may not be any music to listen to...

So, Ian is a covidiot all right, but... is that relevant or dramatic enough tor the context?

This Is the One is a great song, it has meaningful hsitory to the club we love, this collab can be cool. And that's where I think this ends

What age are you? If you're above a certain age (not sure which age but definitely a certain one) I'm pretty sure it's illegal.
42 years or age.

Not sure whats illegal but I do as please mate. If I'm comfortable then that's all that matters.

Care to name them?
Are you trying to suggest there’s been no good music to come out of Manchester in the past 30 years by Oasis? Really? Interesting.

If you don’t listen to, or have much knowledge about music, that’s fine. Just say so.

As someone not from England, I would love to hear a few suggestions :)

I’ll just give you a few bands? Blossoms, Courteeners, The 1975, The Verve (Greater Manchester), The Charlatans, Elbow, James…

There’s plenty. Other stuff too. Depends what you’re into.
