    Just go to a decent boozer in town, get into the ground with 5 minutes to go, it stops being an issue. Simple.

    The fact that we have so many people on here telling us how uninterested they are in Champions League and they can’t be arsed attending this shite, corrupt competition, leaves the club in a position to try to attract other supporters. In a way, I like the naive excitement that tourists bring to Champions League nights. It can actually help the atmosphere.
    I’m guessing, in the main, the fans who don’t attend Champions League games are a bit ‘been there, done it’ types so I’m happy if these people can bring some more energy to these games.

    You’re always starting the philosophical debates.

    They are generally one of two types:

    1. Computer programs designed to mimic human social media activity engaging with designated content.
    2. Paid human-managed social media accounts engaging with designated content.

    Both are intended to create the appearance of a following, inflating social engagement beyond actual influence. Since social influence is now often associated with online following, this is a tactic used to create the appearance of support and substantiation of a movement of like-minded people.

    It is actually nothing new. The concept has been employed for centuries: paying individuals to falsely convey affinity to a movement or idea, with the intention of falsely inflating the importance or support of that subject.

    It’s now just much easier to do because approximating a living entity (human being posting on various social media platforms) can now be more easily manufactured, at very low cost, and at very high volume.

    So a bit like a football club repeating that they have 654 million fans?

    Nothing like that — United can’t even pay for new supporters. ;-)
