    As a young lad I'd walk into shops like HMV and if there was a football related display it would be a huge red United one with a couple of City related items tucked away in the corner of it somewhere. This is the main football display at HMV Market Street Manchester as it stands today. The red is slowly disappearing and the blue is taking over ;)

    Seeing that does please me as when I was a lad it was red garbage everywhere and one City calendar and a season review, I used to spend ages turning all the garbage around or putting City stuff in front of it, don't think I'd even need to bother now!

    I was in London recently and the Nike shop on Bond Street had a big City display in it. I know Umbro are owned by Nike but to have such a prominent display was good to see.

    Saw blue merchandise in Birmingham Airport last Summer and ran excitedly like a little kid to the missus to point it out. We were going away for my 50th birthday! What a change.
