According to The Guardian, the fans group have already announced a program for the day’s protests which they term as a ‘war’.
Manchester United fans announce protests before Liverpool game AGAIN
Manchester United fans will stage protest on Monday as Liverpool visits Old Trafford. The protests, organised by the popular fans group, The 1958, will target American owners, The Glazers.
“For Liverpool, we will plant The 1958 flag at the trinity [statue] for those wanting to make a stand from 7.30pm. In support of match-going and non match-going fans who have made the journey to show their discontent against this failing ownership”, part of fans group statement on their website reads as per The Guardian report.
“We urge anyone to please contact us for any future ideas or plans concerning match day actions so we can help to validate the feasibility and provide help, support and advice. We are all on the same side and it’s crucial the momentum and pressure is maintained above all else. This is a war not a battle, dig yourselves in and be prepared for the long haul.”
Most recently, the fans’ group staged protest against the club owners in May 2021 which led to the postponement of the home league match against Liverpool.
The latest protest is fuelled by the humiliation of team by Brighton and Brentford that have recorded 2-1 and 4-0 victories over United in the first two opening matches of the new season.
Meanwhile, Sir Jim Ratcliffe the richest man in Britain according to Forbes, has expressed interest in buying Manchester United if the Glazers are willing to part with a minority stake in the club.
The British billionaire reportedly identifies as a United fans since childhood.
