The Crusader Club was a newspaper club somewhere near the Express Building when the northern edition of the Daily Express and other dailies were published in Manchester. This great passage on the Gentlemen Ranters site talks of "the murky world of the Crusader Club. Stairs as black as ink, rubbery swing doors... beer-stained table on the left... (I'm sleeping in my car at the back of the Cheshire Cheese)... the first edition has parked and there is a mass exodus of van men up the stairs. The ground above us begins to vibrate as the trucks rattle into life... down here in The Crusader... it's our world beneath the gutter. It's a funny world as we stay 'til thre, four, in the morning, every morning ." Clearly a basement club, the Crusader may be been around the back of the Express Building, or perhaps down Luna Street or George Leigh Street. Anyone shed any light on this one?
