Newton Heath were the club that formed in 1878 (from a company of Lancs and Yorks railway workers). They played in Green and Gold (and White and Blue) up until 19012 when they almost went bancrupt before being bought out by a Manchester brewer. At that time they changed their name from Newton Heath F.C. to Manchester United F.C., and at the same time change kit colours to Red/Black/White.

A lot of United's dodgy kits were inspired by the NH kits, although I don't think the grey one was Laughing out loud

This site shows the changes the first kit (gold and green) to the last NH kit (South Africa-esqe) to the First Untied kit.

This is my favourite kit though:

It's just to emphasize the roots and tradition of the club, compared to the business and debt that United now find themselves in under the Glazers.

It's a symbol/focal point for the protest.

When the recent yanks\glazer out chants started and the stewards got heavy handed and threw people out. I believe one even got reported to the police on grounds of racist abuse due to the term 'Yanks' so the fans have decided the green and gold colours of NH are a protest at the glazers which the stewards and police can not use against them…. or along those lines. It's not something I can see having much success but there you go.

^unless it is what berk suggestions, why the hell do spurs want Gudjohnsen, when keane is better and younger and they have 15 million strikers anyway.

I'd have had him. Cry

Gudjohnsen was amazing at Chelsea I thought. Pavlychenko will probably be on his way out soon anyway.

Injured though Sad only bloody game he plays in ages and he gets injured. I don't know what the problem is with him, he's a good player from what I've seen (not much recently admittedly) so I don't get why he doesn't play unless redknapp just plain doesn't like him - odd for such a supposedly great man manager.

Don't much see the point in Gudjohnsen coming in but it can't hurt I spose. Another option. IIRC is plays left side no? Already have kranjcar..

you lot really are the lowest of the low.

I'm not condoning the coin throw, because it was out of order. But someone through a lighter at evra last week and noone said anything.

Oh, and Bellamy is a right cunt. I hate him, and i hope he gets his legs beaten in with a golf club..

Mutu is my favourite ever Premiership flop

FLORENCE, Italy (AP) — Adrian Mutu's troubled career has apparently taken another negative turn with a positive doping test.

The Italian Olympic Committee says that the Fiorentina forward failed a drug test following a Serie A game with Bari on Jan. 10. Mutu is already facing a euro17 million (US$24 million) fine after being fired by former club Chelsea for using cocaine.
