Manchester United are taking no chances with security ahead of upcoming home matches.
United supporters managed to get the game with Liverpool postponed, when fans protesting against the Glazer family managed to gain access to Old Trafford.
The club have taken action to seal off entrance routes which were vulnerable last time, ahead of planned protests for Thursday’s re-arranged game with Liverpool.
The problem? Well, the club have managed to turn Old Trafford into something resembling Fort Knox.
The developments come days after Joel Glazer reached out to fans, a move possibly prompted by disgruntled commercial partners, and suggested the club may finally invest in Old Trafford.
Well, the club has done so, just not in the way we had in mind.
Now, United had to do something as they do not want another postponed fixture, and the security was shockingly lacking and underprepared for the protest in early May.
This though, doesn’t really send the best message, and serves to make fans look like the enemy of the club, rather than solving problems.
The club are supposed to be welcoming 10,000 fans back into the stadium next week for the match with Fulham, after gaining Government approval.
Here is a look at how supporters on social media reacted to the new barricades…
