Hi Guys,

I am a ardent Manchester United fan living in India, i would like to know something!!! in India manchester united is known as Manu more than United or Man Utd, now i have heard that Manu was a term coined by our rivals Citeh which was related to the Munich Air Crash, is that true? if yes can some of my fellow red devils explain the story?and what happens if the term is used in UK?

Yeah, you'll have no problems using that term, it's just a shortening.

Manchester United > Man United > Man Utd > Man U... simple as that, nothing to do with Munich or City.

hmm thanks guys for replying so fast, actually i guess everyone knows about Orkut an online community where inside the Man Utd community everyone has been asked to not to call our team as Man U as it was a term given by our rivals so just wanted to confirm, thanks guys!!!!!

There are Mancunians on here but do you have to come from Manchester to be passionate about the club? NO. It doesnt matter where you are from mate. Im beginning to wonder if you actually support United Manure. In your threads you seem to talk a lot of .........MANURE!

I am from Manchester and i welcome all reds from all over the globe, locals must still be out celebrating last season and taking the p**s out of any city fans that have the face to still say that they 'are a massive club'.

Calling us by our correct name!

Right Folks here we go once "AGAIN" and for all....... Man U is not a term REAL / TRUE United fans refer themselves to... WHY??? This term is mostly only used by other supporters as a complete and utter insult.. In case anyone on this board is not aware rival supporters used to sing a song about Munich and it goes Man U Man U went on a plane Man U Man U never came back again... Now if thats not getting your blood boiling nothing will.

We are UNITED, MAN UTD, MANCHESTER UNITED, RED DEVILS. We do not have any songs with THAT name in them nor will you be able to buy any official merchandice using that term, it is not printed on any scarves or badges. Now I have been a "United" supporter all my life I am 17 and have never used that phrase to describe the name of my team. It even has annoyed me to write about the song with the name in it, but thought I had to just to get my point over to people who have never heard it ( real United fans forgive me please ) You dont use the phrase Man C, Leeds U, Aston V etc etc. So dont use M** *. Like the song goes Theres Only One United so people will know who you support when using this term.

All said whenever someone calls us M** * I simply correct them.. And I think this should be implimented on this board..So come on lads lets educate the ones that need it and keep THAT name away form our club and this board..The term Utd is the proper abbreviation for the word United and nothing else..Why can some people not just accept this and getover themselves....

It is offensive don't use it, you may if you wish continue to use it but you are just being offensive to everyone else on this board so make your minds up from here if you want to be offensive to others here then use it if you don't then don't use it can it really be that difficult to understand.

And if anyone can remember the Scousers chanting and it pains me even to type this but for educations sake

Man U Never Intended Coming Home

I agree, real Manchester United fans do not call their team 'Man U', even though I think occasionally it's ok to. I even feel wrong when I say it. I just say 'United' most of the time though.
