ebay Used In Munich Shame

Dozens of Manchester united supporters have this week leapt upon Manchester coming together for the victims of the Munich Air Disaster last sunday as a shameful opportunity to make some money on ebay...

When you consider the hysteria which was whipped up throughout the media regarding the potential behaviour of Manchester City supporters in the weeks before what became The Munich Memorial Derby, an outpouring of greed from united's own fans is a terrible embarrassment to their club. Most notably Chief Executive David Gill who was well prepared to comment about City supporters but like the rags manager post defeat, he seems to have also gone missing.

A clear statement from united's top brass or their manager, is surely required rather than the odd quoted sentence from a spokesman. At least Munich survivor Albert Scanlon had the courage to speak out: 'You don't go to these things to make money.

Whether they make 5 quid or a 1000, those so called suppporters should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves as indeed should the bidders.

It must also be said that a handful of Blues have followed suit. Shocking.

Ebay began removing as many of the items, chiefly including 'Unopened Munich Memorial scarves' as they could yesterday and a spokeswoman said: 'Due to the unique and commemorative nature of the scarves handed out at Sunday's football match at Manchester United, eBay will not allow the sale of these items on the site.'

She went on to say that the 'potential for profit to be made from human tragedy' conflicted with the site's offensive material policy.

80% of our own site visitors branded the united supporters actions as a disgrace.

No doubt this barrel scraping episode which takes modern society's behaviour to new depths will be half arsedly reported across the national media as this is after all Manchester united we are talking about.

M. Baguette. The above is indeed all true. Worth pointing out though that some Blues were also hawking the same stuff. This is how it is nowadays. Sad.

Understood, greyhound. The rags involved were by far the majority and initiated the whole appalling episode. Of course, I must go on record and slate the Blues involved too and will amend the article accordingly, but teh main thrust of the article is to highlight that a club of united's standing needs to make a major statement. It's terribly sad and thanks for your comments.

Cheers, greyhound. It should also be mentioned that David Gill's letter to the fans has also been touted by some of the united selllers as being an integral part of the items for sale, highlighting the need for him to speak out.

I said as watched the game, 'no doubt a few scaves will be on ebay'. A sad reflection on our greedy society.

these are not fans, just money-grabbing whores debreft of any form of empathy towards the dead.

Looks like some of them who went there missed the complete point of that game...
