Top 10 flying banners in football
A group of Manchester United fans pooled in 840 to charter a plane to fly over Old Trafford during the match against Aston Villa with a banner stating Wrong One Moyes Out. The banner did fly over the Theatre Of Dreams much to everyones amusement but it was Moyes who had the last laugh when his team beat Aston Villa 4-1. There have been other supporters who have taken to flying banners as a mark of protest or joy. Here is a list of the top 10 flying banners in football.
#1 Fergie Back In 6/1 Paddy Power
Irish betting giants Paddy Power, who had previously advertised themselves on Nicklas Bendtner’s underwear during Euro 2012 came up with another amusing marketing gimmick yesterday during Manchester United’s match against Aston Villa.
Just a while after the “Moyes Out” banner flew over Old Trafford another plane hired by Paddy Power circled the ground with a banner reading “Fergie Back In 6/1 Paddy Power.” Whether anybody places bets on Fergie coming back remains to be seen.
