MORNING, MAN UTD FANS

The Red Devils’ game with Liverpool was called off yesterday, after a section of protesting fans stormed Old Trafford.

Thousands of disillusioned supporters gathered outside the Theatre of Dreams for a predominantly peaceful protest against the ownership of the Glazer family.

A section of protesters managed to breach security and enter the ground, with an idiotic few damaging camera equipment and throwing flares.

After initially delaying kick-off, it was determined that safety couldn’t be guaranteed, despite fans having been dispersed – leading to the match’s postponement.

Sky Sports pundits Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, Micah Richards and Roy Keane were wholeheartedly in favour of the United supporters’ stand, barring the odd idiot.

Neville, 46, said: “This is a consequence of the Manchester United owners’ actions two weeks ago. There is a general distrust and dislike of the owners, but they weren’t protesting two or three weeks ago.

“The Glazer family are struggling to meet the financial requirements at this club and the fans are saying that their time is up.

“My view is quite simply that they’re going to make a fortune if they sell the club and if they were to put it up for sale now I think the time would be right, and it would be the honourable thing to do.”
