They are claiming 1.1 Billion now. What a load of shit!!They did a small sample of questions to the general public.
The question wasn't "do you support United".
It was have you ever heard of Manchester or Manchester United.
They then extrapolated those who said yes, to come to the 600+ million figure.
The initial report said there was 600+ million people who were aware of United. This was to project that there was 600+ million potential customers.
A bit of PR spin then turned into the 600+ customer advertising potential of United.
It didn't take long for the press to run with the 600+ "United fans". The rags were very happy to let this continue.
City should run a similar poll. "Have you heard of the chip shortages at the Etihad". Good for at least 800m+
