They'd waited seven seasons so what was another agonizing 90 minutes? It took 69 of them for Greg Daniels to break the deadlock and another 20-odd for the final whistle to blow and confirm that FC United of Manchester were going up as champions.

The Rebel Reds, as they have become known Nike Blazer Basse PRM Nere Bianche Italia , began in a Manchester curry house following the -Glazer takeover of Manchester United back in 2005. The American's unwanted buyout was the -catalyst but dissent had been growing among the Old Trafford faithful for years: Rising ticket prices and an inflexible ticketing policy; a lack of atmosphere in the ground; Sky TV setting unpredictable kickoff times; a belief that the board pandered to daytrippers and the overseas TV audience over the club's local fanbase; and heavy-handed stewarding were the common gripes. Enough was enough.

And so it was that FC United of Manchester came into being that summer. They applied to the -highest league on the pyramid with an open spot and found themselves in the North West Counties Football League Division Two, kicking off their first game away at Leek CSOB at 3 pm on a Saturday.

If that first game was a return to what people wanted from football then the first three seasons were beyond everyone's wildest dreams. The club topped the league that season and then did the same in the first division before winning the playoffs in their first campaign in the Northern Premier League Division One North. Since then they have been in the Northern Premier League Premier Division. Until Tuesday night, that is.

Long wait over

Their seven seasons in the Premier Division have seen them come agonizingly close to promotion. They just missed out on the playoffs on the last day of their first season and have since been beaten in the final three times and once in the semifinals. This season they have gone one better and will play in the Conference North next season Uomo Balenciaga Triple S Basse Top Nere Italia , just two more promotions from league football.

They started at level 10 of the pyramid and now they are only five leagues below the team that everyone left behind but it has not all been easy. FC United were ridiculed in all corners when they set out their plans to do it their way. Then Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson was very public in his dismissal of the club while former Manchester United player and pundit Alan Gowling said it would "all be over by Christmas." Gowling has since admitted he was wrong.

Four promotions in 10 years is what has made the headlines but FC United's greatest achievements are off the pitch. The club is operated as a community benefit society, with membership open to all and every member getting one vote. It was the first football club to introduce the living wage for its employees, has a strong LGBT supporters group and has encouraged the less well-off and youngsters into attending games through ventures such as pay-what-you-like season tickets.

A new home

The biggest achievement of all Balenciaga Speed Trainer Knit Alte Runner Bianche Italia , after the football equivalent of staying the night on various friends' sofas, is the move to their own ground. From next season FC United will play at the 5.5 million pound ($8.27 million) Broadhurst Park in Moston, a stone's throw from the Newton Heath home of the original iteration of Manchester United. They open the stadium next month with a friendly against Benfica Uomo Nike Air Presto Flyknit Ultra Alte Bianche Italia , the team that Manchester United beat to lift the 1968 European Cup and another club owned by its fans.

FC United might not have been the first fan-owned club - the club manifesto thanks AFC Wimbledon for its unstinting support - and it is unlikely that it will be the last. In 2008, AFC Liverpool followed in the footsteps of the Rebel Reds. AFC, which stands for Affordable Football Club Nike Air Presto Flyknit Ultra Bianche Italia , entered the North West Counties Football League Division One. They were promoted to the Premier Division in 2011, where they remain. Disaffected Newcastle United fans are now talking of an FC United of Newcastle in response to how owner Mike Ashley is running the Premier League club and its effect on the match-day experience.

Punk football, the fans in Manchester call it and people are clearly listening Nike Air Presto BR Rosse Italia , with their promotion -covered by sports media all round the world. This Do-It-Yourself attitude has won fans in far-flung places, including a supporters club in China. The sense of ownership that the fans have means that opinions on what's best for the club are as vocal as the support in the ground, and opinion is divided on what's next. Some want league football as soon as possible Nike Air Presto Uncaged Ultra Rosse Italia , others want to continue to enjoy the ride but everyone who has paid to be a member gets a say.

Karl Marginson, the man who has managed the team since day one (when not selling fruit and veg from his van) has his own ideas. The "immensely proud" coach says that "the Football League is possible" and there "are certainly no fears from us on a football level" in gaining promotion.

Whatever the coming seasons have in store for FC United, there's only one way their fans are returning to Old Trafford and that's to watch the Rebels.

ROME, Sept. 8 (Xinhua) -- The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Food Price Index rose again in August pushed by higher dairy and palm oil prices that were partially offset by lower prices for grains and cereals, FAO reported Thursday.

The overall index rose 1.9 percent and is now about 7.0 percent higher than it was at the same point in 2015. The increase erases a modest drop in the index in July and comes despite an improved global outlook for grains and cereals, which are the largest component in the index.

It was the sixth time in seven months the index rose, after falling steadily for nearly two years.

The FAO predicted the worldwide outpu.
