The Republik of Mancunia runs yearly competitions for a bit of a laugh, with Mancunia Merchandise prizes up for grabs for the winner and runners up. Last year’s was in honour of Carlos Tevez, when after signing him RoM spotted a video of the Argentine dancing, and the “Can You Shake It Like Tevez” competition was born. The winner received a “Republik of Mancunia” hoodie which he wore proudly!
A year further on, the “Sing A Song For The Unsung” competition is launched.
Basically, this a competition where entrants will be asked to create a chant for a United player. But not just any United player, oh no, a player that doesn’t have a song, or at least, not one regularly sung at Old Trafford.
Rio Ferdinand (“Rio! Rio! Rio!” is hardly a song), Michael Carrick, Edwin Van der Sar, Dimitar Berbatov, Nani, Patrice Evra, Fabio and Rafael and Darren Fletcher are the available players.
You can simply enter with the lyrics chant, or, as would be preferable, create a video as well. The more creative the better. Here’s an example (by Mikeyt086) of what we’re looking for:
The winner’s prize is any t-shirt you want, in any size, from MancuniaMerchandise.com.
Chants posted in the comments section WILL NOT be counted in the competition. You must e-mail them to the above address.
