Chris has been a season ticket holder in East Upper for 15 years, but in his day job runs a political and corporate communications consultancy.
His focus for MUST lies in helping grow its media voice and political influence and believes passionately that, ultimately, football supporters need to have an ownership stake in their clubs as the only way to make sure their voice is properly heard.
I’ve supported Manchester United since 1963 having had the privilege to see Law, Best & Charlton in action on many occasions. My first live game was West Ham 1 v Manchester United 6 to win the 1967 League Title.
After a 42 year career in Banking I moved to Salford in 2015 and have done some voluntary work with MUST on the finance side. I am a firm believer in the fans having a strong link to the club either through ownership or via a credible MUST voice for fans generally.
My personal priorities include developing and encouraging the younger and next generation of supporters, improving the atmosphere at Old Trafford and generally trying to ensure fans needs are kept to the fore in this era of galactica style football industry progression.
Mark joined SUAM (Shareholders United Against Murdoch) during the Murdoch campaign. A former long standing IMUSA committee member he has always believed that United supporters should have more of a say in how the club is run. Those that pay should have their say!
Mark was elected to the M.U.S.T. committee at the AGM in July 2012.
My earliest memories of watching Manchester United go back to the 1979 FA Cup Final, which is where my addiction to this great football club started.
In 1992 I got my first LMTB in Stretford End Lower and have been a full season ticket holder for the last 24 years. Five years ago, I made the move to J Stand to try my best to improve the atmosphere with many other likeminded supporters.
I am a proud Yorkshireman and currently work as an Electrical Estimator for Leeds City Council, this gives me plenty of opportunity for some good banter with the locals to get me through the days.
I believe that all supporters need an active voice in football, especially now where the game is dominated by sponsorship and media contracts. In 2014 I became aware of the work being done by MUST and how they were actively engaging with both the football club and the premier league.
I’m a firm believer that all seater stadiums are what has damaged the atmosphere across English football, it restricts like minded supporters congregating together and building vocal areas within stadiums.
Pete Killeen started watching Man United in 1968. His first match was United v West Ham (Best, Law & Charlton v Moore, Peters & Hurst). He's only missed 3 games at Old Trafford since 1970. He used to be regular at all away games until last few years and was also at Rotterdam, Barcelona and Moscow.
Pete's parents and family returned to Galway (Ireland) when he was 16, but he refused to go as he couldn't live without United, so left school, got a job and a flat and stayed in Manchester.
Pete's dream when he was a kid was to see United win the league and he remembers being devastated on the kop in 1992 when they came so close... but they have more than made up for it since. He always used to pay at the turnstile in those days and sympathises with youngsters nowadays having to book tickets 4 weeks before the games. He believes all junior tickets should be £5 maximum or - even like City - "a kid for a quid" at certain games!
Adults are also struggling to pay to watch United nowadays so it would help fans if prices could be frozen for the next few years and even paying for season tickets spread over 52 weeks introduced (with no interest charges!) for people who are short of money. He would also like a return to 3pm Saturday and 7.30 evening kick off times.
Pete has been a member of Shareholders United (& now MUST) since 2001, and dreams that one day the club will be supporter owned, and is opposed to the debts incurred by the Glazers.
I have supported Manchester United since 1963 when they won the FA Cup against Leicester 3-1. I was born on Park Road, Stretford and while I spent many years away working 25 years as head of telecoms with ICI, I keep finding my way back.
I have worked with MUST for about 6 years. Most people will know me at least by sight. I am the guy in the background setting up the AV at the Marquee, Chubb Club and all the other events and not to forget running The Palace and Copper Faced Jacks for the big finals.
I bring skill of project management , Finance management, contract negotiation and tech knowhow for AV equipment.
Although he admits to having doubts in the past about whether MUST can achieve its stated aims Steve is always prepared to step up, give it his best shot and keep with the campaign. He really doesn't think we've missed the boat. He thinks it's just been delayed in port for a little longer. The fans day will come; he just hopes supporters will keep believing.
One Love = Man United
Tanya's been involved with SU/MUST since the very beginning, though she finds herself exiled in once peaceful Cornwall with her two cats Sparky & Fleurie and her Chelski supporting spouse, Mark. She wants to move to Brittany and dreams of a device that could beam her from Arradon straight in to Old Trafford.
Tanya likes TV (Star Trek, TNG, Buffy, The West Wing); French, Italian, 'Arthouse' films; politics (Green and human rights - she's a boycotter!); good wine and good food; supports Scotland ruggers (the 5/6 Nations brings me great lows and amazing highs - like when we take the Grand Slam from under the English noses) and is an ABE (anyone but England) except at cricket (she supports Somerset); reads Pratchett and Austin; and spends loads of time on her computer playing RPGs, designing cards, and keeping our discussion forum from veering perilously off-course (though some times she can be seen driving it there!). And she's been learning French for over 10 years, yet remains nowhere near fluent.
Tanya got involved with SUAM close to the start because she loved United, hated Murdoch and all he stood for, and felt that if he had taken over her club she would have to turn her back on football until he died (hopefully in great pain). Now she wants the club to be in the hands of those who love it, the fans.
