From the 'Plot' chapter of the Wikipedia page of the Ken Loach film "Looking of Eric" starring Eric Cantona.

Bishop organises 'Operation Cantona', sneaking dozens of fellow Manchester United fans into the gangster's house and humiliating him and his family, threatening to put the video of their operation onto YouTube, in turn. The movie ends at Bishop's daughter's graduation day, where the family re-unites in peace.

From today's Guardian:

A 40-strong group of United supporters, many wearing balaclavas and hooded tops, had travelled to [Rooney's] home in Prestbury, Cheshire to warn him off any move to Manchester City. Witnesses reported a gathering outside his house, with a banner reading "If you join City you're dead".
