I BET YOU NEVER KNEW ...............
It has been suggested that Louis Rocca was the man who suggested the name Manchester United at a club meeting on 24th April 1902 after the club was taken over by new owners. It has also been suggested that there were a list of other names suggested prior to this including Manchester Central, which was rejected because this was the same name as the railway station, and Manchester Celtic given the large number of Irish people living in the city at the time. Archibald Leitch was the architect who designed Old Trafford. He also designed Hampden Park , home of Queen's Park (nicknamed The Spiders) and the Scottish National Football Team as well as Anfield (first occupied by Everton and then Liverpool from 1892), Arsenal Stadium (Arsenal), Celtic Park (Glasgow Celtic), Craven Cottage (Fulham), Goodison Park (Everton), Ibrox Park (Glasgow Rangers), Stamford Bridge ( Chelsea ) and White Hart Lane (Tottenham Hotspur). These are just 2 of 101 excellent little trivia entries you will discover about Manchester United in Marc White 's superbly written 101 Things You May Not Have Known About Manchester United.
