Man United fan group starts campaign to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford


Flying banners over stadiums was a few months ago both innovative & humorous, now it flirts with cringe and desperate (mostly cringe). The latest one that is to grace the World of football involves a fan group, two massive clubs, and one larger than life player.

A Manchester United fan group called United Reel has started a campaign to bring Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford. Actually ‘campaign’ would be a rather misleading term, it really is just a banner being flown over the Santiago Bernabeu with the words “Come Home Ronaldo”, because saying it on Social Media is just too mainstream.

This fan group who have members & donors from all across the World, have taken this extreme step to show their love for their old No.7, (possibly not content with their new No.7?).

Now we are all for supporters showing their love for ex-players, and certainly fully encourage supporters doing their bit to helping their club in anyway possible; but to take this absolutely cringe-worthy & embarrassing move does no good to the club, and only negatively impacts the image of the otherwise sane supporters.

This message from United Reel was doing the rounds on various Social Media sites:

Obviously the group has also tried to promote this campaign flying-banner-thingy on Social Media, to some absolutely devastating effect in the worst possible way. They’ve ofcourse been laughed at by other supporters becoming an easy target for ‘bantz’, but have further been criticised by Manchester United supporters as well, and rightly so! In fact, their website has a portfolio of sorts with all the latest tweets trending on this issue. The kicking-self-in-foot thing is, most of them are rather…well…let’s say — not encouraging.

United Reel Tweets

That backfired quickly.
