This week the Candid Caller asked Greater Mancunians: what were you doing when you heard that Manchester United had won the Premier League championship?
Alfred Ferguson of Swinton: 'They have Sky TV in our club, so I went along and caught the end of the match for myself. Being a Manchester man, I was pleased for United that they won.'
George Best of Fairfield: 'I went to watch the match in my local, the Pig on the Wall. I remember United winning in 1967; this time around I thought it was more exciting. The pub was very lively after United won - the pig came off the wall]'
Pamela Ince of Marple Bridge: 'You couldn't have picked a better household if you tried. My grandfather was chairman of Manchester City years ago and we have shares in Manchester City. My son, who's 22, is a graduate hoofing it around the world. The first I knew of United's victory was when he phoned and said, 'Mum, I'm going to take Australian citizenship - I'm not bloody well coming home]' '
David Law of Cheetham Hill: 'I was on my way to Newton East Catholic Club for a drink when I found out. Someone told me in the street. I'm not really that into football, although I used to be years ago, but I'm glad United won.'
Edith Charlton of Hyde: 'To be honest, I wasn't interested and neither was my husband.'
Malcolm Race of Giggs and Binns, opticians, Hazel Grove: 'I was aware in general that United had won but it was on the bottom of my priorities, I was too busy taking an interest in the rugby league finals.'Reuse content
