Looks like Man U fans have broken onto the pitch before the game today in protest against the Glazers

Beggars belief........

Let’s give football back to the fans.

No more big corporate sponsorship.
No more international investors.
No more lions share of a TV deal.

Careful what you wish for you might just get it.

Nothing more hypocritical than a glory hunter. In so many ways. I wonder if the Man Utd fans from the Far East are protesting too?

Sad to see ... also no team coaches outside yet as the fans ? seem determined to stop the game .. postpone it now on safety grounds and deduct Man U 30 points and send a resuscitation unit round to Towk

Surely Liverpool should be given three points rather than the game be rescheduled? All for protesting if it`s done the right way but this was idiotic. The club will be heavily punished for this.

Neville and Carragher pretty much condoned it a couple of hours ago on basis of it being 'peaceful' - which is fair enough - but you can just tell SKY must be squirming and that's at least two or three times since then that the presenter has pushed it on them to revise or change their opinion.

Presenters' ear piece pust be burning red hot from the producers.

Apparently Man Utd fans have had enough. Must be a nightmare supporting a club that wins cups, European honours and pays players hundreds of thousands a week. Since the announcement of the super league it’s been comedy gold.

TAFKA, I think the Sky presenter is pushing it because, as Graeme Souness revealed, a lit flare was thrown up towards the sky match analysis team. I`ve also seen twitter footage of pitch side camera equipment being destroyed.
It`s a pity Neville didn`t make more of a protest against the Glazers when they were paying him tens of thousands of pounds every week to mostly sit on the treatment table.

Towk always calls it like he sees it and doesn`t allow personal feelings to cloud his judgement. He also hates it when people refer to themselves in the third person.

What really surprised me is that fans were able to get into the ground.

Would have thought that one of the biggest clubs in the world would have had adequate security to prevent this sort of thing happening.

Doubt that security stewards can do much against several hundred grown men acting with intent. Seen a photo of a steward with quite a hefty facial injury and it`s now being reported that a police officer required emergency medical treatment after being struck with a bottle.

Once again we have a protest where the majority march and gather at a pre determined point and try and put their concerns across. Whilst the minority run amok and probably don`t know what the protest is about. One guy was asked what they wanted and he said they wanted the Glazier`s to relinquish control of the club and give it to the fans. If they honestly believe by protesting that the owners would just give them a business worth about £3 billion or more they really are in Cuckoo land. It`s quite simple really if the fans want 50+1then they need to buy 51% of the shares.

Protesting now after over a decade of paying £100 per game for match tickets etc, buying club merchandise, eating/drinking from the kiosks in the ground.

Play the game tomorrow afternoon at training ground without announcing it and don`t televise it just release the result.

At least they would never get to the dressing rooms. Most confusing stadium inside I have ever been to. It is like a rabbit warren in there. It was so small in places, I felt claustrophobic.

Playup Pompey to be fair Manchester United fans have been protesting for well over 15 years it started with the green and gold scarf`s and some setting up FC United of Manchester. They are just doing it wrong they are wasting their time. They either buy the majority of shares or drop their pants and take it. The people who own the big club`s won`t give a second thought to the protest`s unless the sponsor`s come calling and voice their concerns. The big boys only care about money and power. What I will say about the Manchester United fans is if their club was on the verge of winning the league and going to a champions League final they wouldn`t be protesting they think they have a right to win everything and second best is not good enough.

Protested for 15 years wearing a green and gold scarf at games they are paying into ontop of the £80 replica kit bought in the megastore whilst drinking a £3 coffee from the kiosks in the ground whilst paying £100 match tickets really isnt a protest is it?

If they hate what the Glazers have done, stop going. Some of them started a team called FC United, they should follow them and fill that ground, get them promoted in the league. They could buy into a share system and use that money to improve the stadium. They should change the name to AFC United of Manchester. Once the other clubs drop down the leagues they might become the larger team. It would require willpower to stay away from Old Trafford. It would also mean no European games for a few years.

Exactly this. If the Pars had continued the road they were going down under Masterton or if the worst had happened, I would be looking to support an "AFC Dunfermline".
