To sponsorship hell in a homemade go-kart

Edited from The Guardian

But there are signs of resistance. Not least from Premier League fans who've either switched to lower league teams or started their own "authentic" and affordable alternatives.

At every game the fans of FC United of Manchester stand and sing (to the tune of the Sex Pistols Anarchy in the UK): "I know what I want and I know how to get it, I wanna destroy, Glazer and Sky". It's probably the most stirring, moving and exciting sight in modern sports. Perhaps Red Bull should sponsor it. Maybe they already do.
