Manchester City fans send round Welcome to Stretford poster spoof

Posted by - July 23, 2009 - Manchester City, Manchester United

Manchester’s billboard wars escalate!

Manchester City supporters have made the latest move in a poster battle with United fans. A spoof email featuring the slogan ‘Welcome to Stretford’ and a hobbling Michael Owen has been doing the email rounds.

City started the war with a provocative ‘Welcome to Manchester’ advertisement featuring Carlos Tevez shortly after capturing the Argentinian striker. United fans responded, not entirely wittily, by splashing the poster with red paint.

See the Tevez poster after the jump.

Your move, Red Devils.

Thanks to OTP reader Tom for sending this in.
