A group of Manchester United fans held an emergency meeting this lunchtime in the bar at Stretford Sports Centre, with the objective of repudiating rumours that many are about to withdraw their support for the club, and defect to Manchester City, as a result of the Ryan Giggs scandal.
The fans laughed off reports of ritualistic shirt burning on Sir Matt Busby Way, and scoffed at suggestions that season tickets would not be renewed, as fans supposedly flock to Eastlands in protest.
One speaker described the rumours as laughable scaremongering, adding that although many United fans don't approve of the way Ryan Giggs has conducted himself, he has always done his job on the pitch.
It appears that suggestions of a transfer of allegiance from United to City are as far fetched as a bucket of shit from China. Most United fans that Skoob Sports News spoke to were adamant that they would rather eat razor blades or have electric cattle prods shoved up their bums than support City.
"These rumours are just bollocks," lifelong reds fanatic Jarbo the Killer told us. "I'd rather have crocodile clips attached to me genitals and be given electric shock treatment than support City. In fact, I'd rather support the fucking Scousers than support City. Hang on...maybe that's going a bit too far, but you get what I mean."
More as we get it.
