A group of surly Manchester United fans are trying to raise enough money to hire a plane to fly over Old Trafford during Saturday’s game against Aston Villa towing an anti-David Moyes banner behind it.
Ah, the ol’ plane banner shtick. Classic.
The campaign, which started over on the Red Issue fanzine’s forum, was sparked by the growing ire over the “Chosen One” banner that is hung in the Stretford End – a banner which had to be closely guarded by an entire garrison of stewards following United’s derby defeat to City on Tuesday night…
According to the forum thread on the Red Issue website, the plane hire stunt would cost £840 to stage, with donations already rolling in.
Aren’t some people silly?
