Whatever your own personal feelings are towards 'half-and-half scarves' - those tacky scarves made up of both teams' colours - you can imagine the fake disappointment felt by fans of Colchester United when they turned up for their historic match with Manchester United at Old Trafford last night, only to find that their team's name on the half-and-half scarves had been spelt incorrectly.
That's what you get when you rely upon uneducated northern oiks.
Colchester United have been members of the Football League since 1950, and, even if the two teams had only met twice before, surely there had been enough mentions of the U's down the years for everyone to have known there was a letter 'h' in their name, hadn't there?
And the added irony of the mistake was that it is the same 'h' contained within the name of Manchester, where the crappy scarves were created.
One Colchester fan said:
"We'll have to remember, if we ever get to play them at our place, to have some half-and-half scarves made with 'Manchester Urinals' on them, and see what those knuckle-dragging northern monkeys make of that!"
A scarf-seller said:
"Scarves for a quid, anyone?"
There were no takers.
