Manchester United supporters to start branding all silverware “Micky Mouse” trophies

Trophy laden

Following their failure to win the Carling Cup this year, Manchester United supporters are still continuing to undermine Liverpool’s success by calling the trophy a “Mickey Mouse” cup, leading to expectations that they will be calling the FA Cup, Premier League and Champions League “Mickey Mouse” competitions as well in future years.

The Carling Cup became a “Mickey Mouse” trophy for United supporters the moment they were dumped out of it by Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, and many Reds have started claiming that the Champions League is only a consolation for teams who failed to qualify for the Europa League.

As rivals City look set to continue to spend whilst the Glazers suck United dry for the foreseeable future, it remains to be seen how long most United supporters will persist with the “Mickey Mouse” line before they switch sides.

    Ha ha, that’s pretty good actually.

    I likewise brand Kate Beckinsale and Catherine Zeta Jones the Mickey Mouse Wives.

      Hi Michael, hope you’re having a nice weekend which will culminate with a Spurs win this afternoon. (Who am I kidding!)
