Manchester United Nostalgia Hotline: Paddy’s plan to help Red Devils’ fans

Ah... the good old days.


After Manchester United’s latest embarrassment on the biggest stage, Paddy’s launched an automated helpline for Red Devils supporters struggling to come to terms with how cr*p their team are.

Introducing… the Nostalgia Hotline

United have been on the slide ever since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013 and things don’t look to be getting better any time soon.

From Phil Jones’ contract extensions, Marouane Fellaini as a marquee signing to the Moyesiah and last night’s 4-3 defeat to Bayern Munich, the low blows just keep coming.

But there was a better time, a happier time. A time when a treble didn’t include the Community Shield, a time when Manchester City were in the third tier.

So why not take a stroll down memory lane, to a long-forgotten time when Manchester United was a proper club with proper players and a proper manager by calling Paddy’s UK (0800 043 1999) and Irish (1800 33 1999) freephone numbers.

Remember the Sharpey Shuffle? David Beckham from the half-way line? Even Massimo Taibi letting that one in through his legs. Oh, how we laughed.

“We know being a United fan is pretty tough right now – and we just wanted to do something to help. So we channeled our pity into positivity, called Sharpey and asked him to do us a solid. Like us, he felt compelled to do the right thing,” said Paddy Power spokesperson Rachael Kane.

โ€œWe canโ€™t guarantee that visualising the Sharpey shuffle or triggering fond memories of Cantona, Kanchelskis or Keane will help, but it canโ€™t hurt more than the hell these poor Red Devils find themselves in currently,โ€ she added.

So whether it’s you or someone you know, make sure you help them get in touch with Paddy’s Manchester United Nostalgia Hotline today featuring a message from a legend, commentary from United’s two Champions League final wins and City’s relegation to the old Division 2 as well as a heart-warming singalong.

The hotline is live and completely free to use.

UK fans can contact 08000 43 1999 and fans in the RoI can call 1800 33 1999.
