A big thanks 08:46 - May 3 with 1394 viewselectricblue

A big thanks to the Manchester United supporters for showing the football world how not to try and get changes at your supported club....

Watching the disgraceful scenes unfold on sunday afternoon shows how moronic some people can be.....

This should be a pointer to all Daleys what not to participate in if wanting a change within the club...

We all recognise the intense feelings behind the formation of the ESL and how it was done in such an underhand way. That was disgraceful and fans have a right to protest not only about that, but about the way their club has been hi-jacked by the Glazers, where fans are treated as a non-entity and have been since the day they walked through the door.

The morons who got inside the ground yesterday did their club and their cause no favours. Letting off rocket flares aimed at the Sky commentary box, chucking full cans of beer at the same target, climbing the goalposts, stealing the corner flags, smashing camera equipment is hardly likely to bring praise.

Then when a Policeman is smashed in the face with a broken bottle and another colleague hospitalised, it turns out to be a pretty poor day for the fans no matter how worthy their grievances may be.

The protest outside the ground was absolutely fine. Good numbers attending to show that they are not happy with the club’s owners. Those who subsequently got into the ground and caused violence and destruction have undermined the effort of the larger number who turned up simply to protest.

It’s given the media an undesirable narrative and the owners a reason to condemn. Idiots.

Enjoyed watching the passionate and angry speech by David Bottomley's new bestie, Gary Neville, on Sky

'Now is the time for fans at all levels, whether it is the Premiership and your anger with the ESL proposals, the EFL and the problems with finances and poor management or non league where your club is struggling to survive, to get together and demand change' or something like that

Of course he didn't mention his controlling influence of Salford, or why they bust the League Two salary caps (before they knew it would be withdrawn) but the sentiment is right. I wonder if he will be on David B's Christmas card list this year

Perhaps Gary could lure DB to Salford? How much is the taxi fare? I'll pay.

I’d rather that Gary Neville was persuaded of the managerial talents of BBM and his sidekick Lee Riley. Salford must be due for a managerial change soon.

Looking at a lot of the still photos it would be interesting to know how many of the people who forced their way into the ground (many of whom appeared to be of school age) actually follow United or merely turned up on the off chance of mischief?
As a Trotskyist student friend of mine used to remark a peaceful protest is useless because it never attracts any publicity.

Completely disagree that this has done the fans no favours. It’s put their grievances front and centre, first story on the evening news. ‘Traditional’ protests can be, and have been, completely ignored. This however sends a message that when the fans want to they can cause serious disruption. I’m not sure the people going onto the pitch thought it would result in the game being postponed but I have to think they will be happy that it did. I for one think this hopefully signals the beginning of a change in that fans cannot continue to be ignored. We can all learn a lesson from this and if we also support fans influencing ownership and management of a club then we should be less ready to condemn something that actually makes people sit up and take notice.

Who else watched the news coverage and wished that the net at the Stratford End had given way, entangling the leering and smirking idiot atop it?

Seem to remember a peaceful protest at spotland years back when a number of fans sat in the centre circle at half time, before leaving before the second half.

Can’t remember what it was about or even if I imagined it!

I think it was a protest about having to give the Sandy Lane over to Burnley fans in the days when we played them and the ground was packed. I think David Kilpatrick walked onto the pitch to address the protesters directly.

It worked for the Jocks at Wembley many moons ago.
