We are United (Issue 1)




Money problems, a relegation from the top division, you could be fooled into thinking the first story line for We are United was based on any number of football clubs from today's modern game it is certainly more common now than back in 1984. Below is the last ten year history of United football club right up to 1984 were they are struggling for promotion from the 2nd Division under the management of John Bland.








Before United's next game manager John Bland is summoned to the board room....the news is not great......



So United next game was against Albion where United best chance fell to Klaus Bergen who shot.....



In the end Albion took their best chance and the score ended with a 1-0 defeat for United. John Bland issued Joe Pearson with the list of player casualties & one by one the names were read out....



There would be a twist as a smug John Bland settled in the boardroom there would be one more casualty....




As Joe Pearson left The Mill for what he thought was the last time, he was called back to be given great news...
