    funniest pre-season post yet from fabongrass

    Hey Lyndy, did you know that Man U are just copying Newcastle Uniteds' old strip?

    Your miserable lots' home kit is just the old Newcastle East End strip of red shirts, white shorts and black socks which NUFC wore for their first two years as a merged football club, this was changed to the more familiar black and white striped kit in 1894 to avoid colour clashes with other clubs.

    Manchester United didn't even officially exist until 24 April 1902, prior to that they were a Micky Mouse outfit known as Newton Heath who wore green and yellow strips.

    ...History lesson over!
