Default MUST - GREEN & GOALS CAMPAIGN

[1] MUST APPROACHES 50,000 MEMBERS


As we write this MUST membership stands at 49,334 (view latest figure in
top right corner here http://www.joinmust.org/blog/ ). Let's drive that
past 50,000 tomorrow and then push on for the next milestone. We've already
surpassed the stadium capacities at Liverpool and City.

MUST > city

Newcastle next and then Old Trafford itself and on to Wembley.

Many people previously failed to realise the power of this huge membership
but now as our influence grows in the media, financial and political
circles it is becoming clear to everyone just how important these numbers
are. We'll be making a special announcement about our online campaign on
Monday which will take this to another level with the very best in the
business joining forces with MUST.

MUST is growing at an astonishing rate thanks to the efforts of many
members going out and recruiting. We need this to continue and you can help
to push us towards the next target of 100,000 reds all working together for
the good of Manchester United and the goal of supporter ownership at our
club in the future. Everyone can help by spreading the message of Green and
Gold to all the reds you work and socialise with and to any red friends you
know from around the world. Check your e-mail address book and all the
social media sites like facebook and send them this link (below) and ask
them to consider joining MUST and mention it's free to join. If you attend
games at Old Trafford then take a little time to ask match going reds and
Exec box holders to join the trust also.

[2] THE GREEN AND GOALS CAMPAIGN

As the Green and Gold campaign goes from strength to strength the team
marches on in parallel. This is surely no coincidence.

In the seven games since the campaign started (strictly speaking Burnley
was the start of the "uprising" following the MUST/IMUSA meeting at
O'Briens and the unveiling of the LUHG flag on the Stretford End) United
have won 6 games including a fantastic away win at Arsenal, an impressive
performance at Villa Park playing with 10 men for most of the game and then
a stupendous 3 - 2 victory over AC Milan in the San Siro.

Burnley H 3 - 0
Hull City H 4 - 0
Man City H 3 - 1
Arsenal A 3 - 1
Portsmouth H 5 - 0
Aston Villa A 1 - 1
AC Milan A 3 - 2

United have scored an incredible 22 goals and the fantastic atmosphere
created from supporters wearing the colours of green and gold has been
transmitting to players on the pitch.

Whether at Old Trafford, The Emirates, Villa Park or the San Siro -
Fergie's wish has been granted. Reds have got behind the team noisy,
determined and newly optimistic about the potential future ownership of the
club by supporters of Manchester United.

The consensus from many reds is the atmosphere, certainly at Old Trafford
has been better than anyone can remember in recent times. In the game
against Man City the stadium shook with noise and it felt like a throwback
to thirty years ago, for those of us old enough to remember

No supporter is being pushed into green and gold, above all, anyone
joining the campaign remains fully positive and 100% behind the team and in
their support for Sir Alex and the players on the field. However we are
still in the early days and every game more and more people are taking on
the colours of Green & Gold and banding together to campaign for a brighter
future for Manchester United.

Green & Gold is a fantastic visual unifying force linking to the pure
origins of the club and representing the aspirations of a growing and
unstoppable movement towards a change of ownership of our club and the
great thing is it is driving us on towards that 19th title at the same
time.


[3] GREEN & GOLD SCARVES ON MAIL ORDER & MATCHDAY

We have been selling the Green & Gold scarves at cost price to get the
campaign off the ground and up to critical mass. That has undoubtedly
already been achieved but we will continue to provide scarves on a matchday
and at our office to keep the momentum going. However we didn't really want
to get into the mail order business - certainly not at cost price - as
there are plenty of others already providing this service. However we've
had numerous messages from members saying they want to buy the scarves
online but they'd rather contribute to MUST than some other business.

Therefore we are making limited numbers of scarves available via our online
shop with all profits going to the MUST campaign. Note the displayed price
(7.50) already includes UK postage and packing. If you are outside the UK
please select the appropriate option otherwise your order can't be
dispatched.

PLEASE NOTE YOU DO NOT LOG IN WITH YOUR MUST MEMBERSHIP NUMBER. If you
haven't bought from the shop before you need to create a new shop account.

Scarves available here - 100% of profits go to the MUST campaign funds:

Scarves will continue to be available at cost from MUST on home matchdays
including West Ham on Tues 23rd Feb. They will be on sale from outside
Trafford House and near to the Bishop Blaise pub. Other locations to be
confirmed (possibly Platts and Premier Inn tbc). Please don't give
donations to anyone on the street or at other locations unless you are sure
they are genuine MUST sellers. We have no problem with entrepreneurs
selling scarves for profit (whatever spreads the message) as long as they
aren't claiming it is benefiting MUST.

[5] GREEN & GOLD INFECTS INTERNATIONAL AMATEUR FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT

On the 24th/25th of July there is a football tournament held in Leeds where
over a thousand football fans will be gathering to represent the teams that
they support. The Manchester United fans team is extending their
involvement this year by taking part in the 'vets' category, and we're
looking for some over 30's to make up numbers in the squad. The team will
be entered as 'Man Utd - LUHG' and will wear green and gold. We'll be doing
whatever we can at the event to raise awareness of the green and gold
campaign.

Contact dougcrouch@hotmail.co.uk for details. We'll most likely play a few
warm-up games before July in the Manchester area.
