Man Utd fans plan more anti-Glazer protests for Old Trafford celebration

Manchester United fans are planning more anti-Glazer protests later this week.

Sean Bones wants lots of fans to gather outside Old Trafford on Friday - but not only to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the stadium's opening.

As vice-chairman of the independent Manchester United Supporters' Trust, he is determined to continue the anti-Glazers protest which has gathered pace over the last few weeks.

Bones told the Sunday Mirror: "Manchester United and Old Trafford have been built up over the past 100 years as a tribute to the love and passion of its supporters.

"The stadium has been a magnificent home for generations. A lot of supporters have said it's their church. I agree with that.

"Sir Matt Busby's vision was of a family - of players, staff and supporters. He built a team to entertain workers. Since the Glazers have taken over that vision has been disappearing.

"The Glazers have different values to the Busby values."

The green-and-gold movement is based on the colours worn by Newton Heath when it was founded in the 19th Century. The trust has already sold an estimated 30,000 scarves.

Bones added: "I'm sure that many who are unhappy with the way things are going will visit the ground on that special day."
