MANCHESTER UNITED fans are stepping up their protest against the clubs owners The Glazers with a planned protest outside Old Trafford at 2pm today.
Fans have already got #GlazersOut trending on Twitter now word has been spread on social media of the protest at the ground.
The Manchester United Supporters Trust are not behind the initiative.
But a spokesperson for the supporters group said: “While these are grass roots independent fan campaigns rather than MUST initiatives we all share the frustration that has brought us to this point.”
The Trust also said on their Twitter site: We want owners who have the same priorities as supporters.
“That’s what we have always had as our primary objective and clearly that requires current owners to sell so #GlazersOut is nothing new for us – but how that is achieved is key and there are different tactical approaches.”
SunSport reported this week how the club had axed two planned phone-in shows on MUTV to avoid anti-Glazer calls.
Monday night’s Paddy Crerand Show, in which the 1968 European Cup-winning legend takes calls from fans, was canned as has his scheduled programme next week.
