Strange but True

A steward inside Old Trafford has found a Manchester Utd fan who is actually from Manchester.

Fan Len Evans, from Urmston, said:

"I have had the same seat since 1993 and every home game would be seated next to someone different. My hopes were raised last season when I was sat next to some fella who I thought was from Salford but at half time it transpired he was actually p*ssed and from Stockholm.

"I know our club has a geographically displaced branch of supporters however didn't realise it was this extreme.

"The club wrote me a lovely letter when they found out I was from Manchester, which I have framed. I also received a shirt signed by the players, got a guided tour of Old Trafford and when I met Fergie and asked for his autograph, he told me to f*ck off. I will treasure that moment."

Similar claims are being investigated regarding a Chelsea supporter who claims he was a fan prior to the Roman Abramavich era. This follows on from reports in Tyne & Wear, where a Newcastle fan was seen inside St James Park not wearing a Newcastle top and was of slim build.

If these reports are true they could spell the end of the premiership.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
