Man Utd fans stage colourful anti-Glazer protest inside Old Trafford vs Fulham

Manchester United supporters held up placards protesting against the Glazers ahead of their match against Fulham at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Ten thousand fans were allowed inside the stadium to watch the Red Devils’ final home game of the season, and there was a largely positive atmosphere, which was a far cry from the ugly demonstrations against the American owners a few weeks ago.

Those present did not waste the opportunity to make their feelings clear, however, and as the teams walked out onto the pitch green and yellow signs with the words ‘GO – Glazers out’ were held up around the ground.

The anti-Glazer sentiments have been ramped up ever since the billionaire family’s unsuccessful attempts to take United into the European Super League last month.

United’s game against Liverpool scheduled for May 2 had to be postponed after thousands of demonstrators surrounded Old Trafford and broke onto the pitch.

And there were further protests for the re-scheduled game last week, which United lost 4-2 against their bitter rivals.

Tuesday saw a much more peaceful scene, although many fans wore green and yellow scarves, which have been common in the past.

And there were also further home-made banners and signs on show, with one reading ‘This game belongs to you and me’ and other which bore the words ‘You never had our trust’.

Most supporters appear to want the same ’50+1′ rule which is common in Germany, which allows fans to occupy the majority of voting rights within a club.

And it is believed fans will chant in support of this in the 51st minute of the game.
