West Ham problems? Try Man United’s!


This is a West ham site, but I felt duty bound to share the following .

Apparently, Manchester United’s club shop was unable to sell shirts bearing the name of new £75m striker Rasmus Højlund for more than a month – because it did not have any Danish ‘øs’ in stock.!

Frustrated supporters branded the club ‘incompetent’ after being told that the Old Trafford Megastore was waiting on the arrival of the required letter to spell out the star signing’s surname.

Højlund arrived from Atalanta at the start of August. But fans who tried to buy the 20-year-old’s shirt as late as last Friday were told that they were awaiting the arrival of the ‘unique o’ and promised an update on this coming Wednesday.

While some may see the issue as trivial, one United follower says it is indicative of how club officials cannot get ‘the most basic’ things right, with the embarrassing situation coming in what has been a dreadful month for the Premier League so -called giants with issues both on and off the field.
