Which also isn't in Manchester but they do get lots of people watching Man. Utd. Is it because they have Manchester in their name or do people think Old Trafford is actually in Manchester?

Sale R.U. haven't changed their name and haven't played in Sale for a long time. Their crowds are alot better than Salford's, why is this?

Maybe they moved it from The Metropolitan Borough of Trafford to the City of Manchester just for you, good arn't they. :DANCE:
Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything.

Yes, but Greater Manchester is a borough, not a town. I wish Swinton well, but it wont make a jot of difference, as people have said, Salford don't get supporters from the wider Manchester conurbation and it's 4 miles closer to Manchester.

If they had to adopt the Manchester name what would have been wrong with Manchester Swinton Lions. Seems to work ok for Aussie teams, Cronulla Sutherland, St George Illawarra etc. Could have been a good branding thing; using ‘MSL’ on leisurewear etc.

True, Swinton aren’t exactly a household name currently, but you can’t just disregard 100+ years of history.

Indeed, when they played at Gigg Lane, they were known as Swinbury Lions. :D

Bizarre argument. Of course Old Trafford is in Manchester.

The Man Utd website gives their address as Manchester, as does the Royal Mail.
