Manchester United fans plot protest against Glazers for Liverpool clash as supporters vow to ’empty Old Trafford’ after clash was postponed in May 2021

    Manchester United fans are planning to protest against the club’s ownership during the upcoming home clash against Liverpool.

    Upset towards the Glazer family is at an all-time high amid an underwhelming summer transfer window and a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Brighton on the opening day of the Premier League season.

    Old Trafford saw unsavoury scenes on Sunday with protests reportedly causing the club shop to close and fans pictured brawling in the stands.

    Now, ‘#EmptyOldTrafford’ has started trending on Twitter as supporters prepare to boycott the North West derby with Liverpool on August 22.

    One wrote: “Enough is enough. #EmptyOldTrafford #GlazersOut #GlazersSellUnited”

    Another said: “If you love Manchester United then stay out of Old Trafford. It is worth it lads #GlazersSellManUtd #EmptyOldTrafford”

    And a third added: “My seat will be empty for the Liverpool game! Let’s get this happening, the time is NOW!! #EmptyOldTrafford”

    It comes 15 months after the same fixture was abandoned when hundreds of United fans stormed Old Trafford in protest against the Glazers’ 17-year tenure.

    Former director Michael Knighton recently revealed he is planning a hostile takeover bid to try and put fans out of their misery.

    The 70-year-old, who served on United’s board between 1989 and 1992, said: “Everyone knows that we need new ownership of this football club.

    “That is my aim, those are my objectives.

    “I’m making good progress, I continue to talk to the people, I’ve got some good pledges with good finance.

    “We are now working on the offer document – remember, it’s a hostile bid.”
