Oh no it isn't! (Is it pantomime season yet?)

As bizarre as it may seem Old Trafford is in Stretford which is not and never has been, in Manchester.

So do Leeds not play in Leeds as they play in Headingley Trafford is an area of Manchester.

No, because Headingley is in Leeds.
Trafford isn't in Manchester.

It really isn't that hard to understand.

It's not in Manchester. It's in Stretford, Trafford.

That's in Greater Manchester, but so is Salford, Wigan, Bury, Bolton, Sale, Swinton, Leigh, Oldham and Rochdale.

There will be no issue calling them Manchester Lions then if Greater Manchester and Manchester are synonymous.

And Father Christmas lives in Lapland Finland so it must be true eh ? What's so hard to understand, Old Trafford is in errr Trafford that has nothing to do with the City of Manchester.

Greater Manchester is a metropolitan county and combined authority area in North West England, with a population of 2.8 million.[2] It encompasses one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United Kingdom and comprises ten metropolitan boroughs: Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Wigan, and the cities of Manchester and Salford. Greater Manchester was created on 1 April 1974 as a result of the Local Government Act 1972, and designated a functional city region on 1 April 2011.
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.

If anything and this wouldn't at all be controversial at all, if Swinton were to defer to a city status a better bet would be Salford Lions. After all Swinton is part of that city, Salford is administered from 'Swinton' Town Hall.

Seriously, what’s wrong with you people. It’s in Manchester. You have simply chosen one narrow definition of Manchester simply for bizarre internet d|ck measuring contests.
In the same way as London is not defined simply as the tiny area of the City of London.

In common usage, in postal terms, in a myriad of other usages it’s in Manchester. But carry on with this batsh|ttedry if you like fellas. Much like Jean Capdouze it’s both strange and unnecessary.
