The guy who wrote Pulp Fiction? I wonder if he got the inspiration for the "MMmmm this is a tasty burger" line from Villa Park? I doubt it somehow! :)

I'm sorry to rain on your parade Mr Fear but the band Duran Duran support Manchester United. There was a programme on them, just after they announced their reunion. Part of the programme showed Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes and John Taylor being shown around the Carrington Training ground by Roy Keane. They, the band, told Keane they where lifelong Manchester United fans.
