Snapshot: One Man’s Hatred Of Man Utd Lives On From Beyond The Grave

By Alan Duffy

The clever Irish chaps at have found quite a superb visual encapsulation of the hatred some people have for the mighty Manchester United.

This particular ABU, one George Atkinson, made sure that his gravestone would let the world know how much he despised the Red Devils, courtesy of a cheeky “I would rather be here than at Old Trafford” quote. The man died in 2005 but his hatred for United lives on.

    We played out a dull 0-0 with Villarreal the night before, and roy keane left us around the same time.

    So maybe he was a frustrated United fan!

    Not to mention the Glazers took over United in 2005, that man could very well have been United fan.
