Manchester United Fans Set For Anti-Glazer Protests As Woes Drag On

Published

A Manchester United fan group is planning a new protest against the Glazer family, the club’s owners, at their match at Old Trafford against Norwich on Saturday.

Red Devils supporters have grown increasingly tired of their owners, who plunged the club into debt when they bought it back in 2005. The team’s poor fortunes on the pitch have also been used as ammunition against the Glazers.

There were protests at Old Trafford last year in response to the failed Super League launch by Europe’s elite football clubs. Liverpool’s trip to Manchester United last May was called off due to chaotic scenes where supporters spilled into the stadium during a time when no fans were allowed due to COVID-19 protocols.

However, the 1958 group have asserted that this action won’t be similar to those scenes.

Those organising the event on Saturday told The Guardian: “This isn’t another Liverpool – we believe this was a one-off unique event. This is the start of constant, relentless, legal and peaceful protests and actions against our owners.

We know the challenges ahead of us and we will not waver or detract from these goals. Bring your colours, banners, flags and flares. We need you – we need each other, we need everyone to put aside their differences. Some things are worth fighting for.”
