A 35-year-old man from Leytonstone in East London, who has been a fervent Manchester United supporter ever since the team became successful under Sir Alec Ferguson in the 1980s, is currently having a serious rethink following the team's alarming loss of form, and is now considering switching his allegiance to the club representing the place where he was born, and where he has lived his entire life.
Terry Carter, a furniture porter, told The East London Gazette: "I've been a loyal and committed fan of United ever since I noticed they were winning a few matches, and the odd FA Cup final in the 80s.
"However, now that they're really useless, I've realised that my loyalty to the club may have been misplaced.
"From now on, I'm going to support Leyton Orient, although I may switch to Liverpool next season, especially if they finish top of the Premier League, and win another European Champions League title."
A recent survey revealed that 97% of Manchester United supporters live in the south of the country and have no idea where Manchester is, with over 80% of those surveyed believing that it's probably in England although they couldn't swear to it.
