I live in Canada and in my adopted hometown there is a pub called The Manchester. The Canadian who opened this pub liked the name and wanted an "English" theme. I've been in there a few times as it is home to the Canadian Manchester United Supports Club branch for our home town.

On my first visit the owner asked me why I wasn't so impressed. I told him I liked the decor for the most part (pictures of bands etc.) but he may want to take down the large Maggie Thatcher poster. Also, they also have several scarves above the bar. These include; 1 united, 1 Murdering Scum, 1 ciddy and a few others. They call it the "away section" for fans of other teams. I understand how they may not want to drive away customers but promote our rivals leaves me dumbfounded.

Now the grand finale, they have organized a bus trip to Detroit, U.S.A. (Only a few miles away) to watch the game against Murdering Scum in a pub over there. The catch.... Its home of the Detroit Murdering Scum Supporters Club.

I don't forsee any problems.

If Detroit is like it used to be when I went there then not sure why anyone would want to visit that shithole.

Detroit is just starting to rebound. It's still a shit hole, don't get me wrong, but some very business savvy people have been buying all this ridiculously low priced property for development.

Without getting into a big race debate many people fail to see that the problem in Detroit is black vs. white, white vs. white and black vs. black. When it should really all be about the green$.
