  Introducing FC United (of Manchester)
It's hardly an exciting name but FC United will start play next season in the North West Counties League. They have a stadium (only a stone throw from where Newton Heath was formed and seem to have a fan base...well, disgruntled Man U fans.

While I had hoped AFC Wimbledon succeeded when Wimbledon moved to Milton Keynes. I'm hoping FC United die a quick death. We'll see what happens. My money is on the new Wimbledon club doing better in the long run. After all, the success of Man U the last few years has been due to the financial contributions (merchandise sales etc.) from fair-weather fans. FC United attendance will be interesting to follow.
