Man Utd fans throw objects at coach, start fighting, and sing sick chants about Glazers

Man Utd fans took to throw objects at their own supporters coach, start fighting, and also chose to sing sick chants about the Glazers.

There were some unsavoury scenes outside Old Trafford with some fans taking part in some grim chants against the club’s ownership.

Man Utd fans descended in and around the ground ahead of the Premier League match to protest against the unpopular Glazer ownership, but things turned violent, metal fences pushed down, fighting breaking out.

However, before the march a group of Man Utd fans were filmed singing some abhorrent chants about their co-owner Joel Glazer.

Near the ground they were heard chanting ‘Joel Glazer’s going to die’ and ‘Malcolm’s in a box’, in reference to the death of Joel’s father, Malcolm, who bought the club back in 2005.

There were unsavoury scenes earlier on with some Man Utd fans filmed throwing objects at a coach passing by, According to CasinoMentor.

It’s not clear who was on the coach but chants of ‘murderers’ and ‘you scouse b*******’ were heard being chanted.

The major protest is against the Glazer family’s ownership of the club with the American’s blamed for overseeing year’s of mismanagement, poor recruitment, and lack of investment.

Man Utd supporters group ‘The 1958’ have set up the mass event and urged supporters to congregate at the Tollgate pub near Old Trafford at 7pm with plans made to then march down to the ground prior to kick off at 8pm.

United staff made the decision earlier on Monday to cancel their usual pre-match meeting at the Lowry hotel amid safety fears regarding the organised protests.

MUST (Man Utd Supporters Trust) said ahead of the protest: “The news that Jim Ratcliffe could be interested in buying the club, if it came up for sale, is not entirely new of course. But the fact that he (via his spokesperson) came out and made that aim clear in a statement created huge media interest and we were being peppered with requests for comment from the media and hence we issued the statement above.

“We all want to see a better ownership model for our club and MUST believes that model should have fans at its heart as co-owner shareholders. It is literally written into our constitution as a primary objective of the organisation so it should be no surprise that we see it as a key element of any existing or new ownership model.

“We’ve seen protests last season continuing into this season and we’ve always supported the right for fans to protest legally and peacefully and committed to provide information to members where such planned protests are credible. For many years it fell upon MUST, in the absence of anyone else prepared to do it, but more recently a new group, The 1958, have picked up the mantle and been very successful thus far in organising protest activities.

“Of course it is every individual fan’s choice as to whether they wish to participate and it is essential that we all respect the choices of others even when they differ from our own. So we do not patronise our members by telling them what to do. We simply provide information and allow you to make your own decisions. On Monday there is a protest march planned by The 1958, from the Tollgate pub, leaving at 7pm and gathering peacefully on the forecourt on arrival at Old Trafford congregating in front of The Trinity statue.

“Clearly there is huge discontent which is fuelling the desire for protest. In parallel, as a Trust, we will also maintain our communication with the club because that gives us angles of influence too – through the Fans’ Forum, through the Fans’ Advisory Board and through direct dialogue. On top of the protests, all of this is complementary about exerting maximum possible influence for change. It is certainly in the interest of fans that there is a long term dialogue with club management which persists regardless of who the owners are and continues through any ownership change if/when that does occur.

“These are, as they say, interesting times at United. At rock bottom on the pitch, but perhaps with a chink of light off it. With the fans united, we can create the conditions for the change we need. Let’s stay united and go forward together.”


Ratcliffe previously announced his intentions earlier in August to purchase the 13-time Premier League champions with a statement from an Ineos spokesperson telling The Times: ‘If the club is for sale, Jim is definitely a potential buyer.’

Former Red Devils captain Roy Keane has also backed calls for a change in ownership at his previous club with the Irishman speaking pre-match to Sky Sports Monday Night Football saying: 

‘A lot of people are saying Manchester United fans aren’t happy with the owners because they haven’t won many trophies in recent years, but they weren’t happy with the Glazer family since day one.

‘It’s been ongoing and there doesn’t seem to be an end to it. The fans are frustrated.’
