BBC Sport employees must have a post it note on all their monitors. Before you forward any football content to Sports Editor, please ensure that you have followed BBC Manchester United Protocol, in that you've checked your input to include any or all positive slant. You may be asked prior to publication, that you have considered all options, however vague or tenuous that link may be. Eg, any sports story including the word Barcelona must contain at least one picture and link to that fabulous night & any page stating Manchester City Treble win must include at least three times more page content of Manchester United 1999 treble winners. In addition, protocol states that reports of any top club being linked to any top player must ALSO include Manchester United as the target players most preferred option club to sign for, regardless.
