Only 20 People Turned Up To Old Trafford To Protest The Glazers
Manchester United fans are unhappy with the way their club is being run by the Glazer family. Some fans decided to protest on Saturday afternoon but only around 20 fans turned up.
Life at Manchester United has not been good since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club in 2013, and the team haven't been close to winning the league in the six years.
Much of the blame goes to the club's American owners, the Glazer family, and that led some fans to want to protest. That was set for Saturday afternoon but unfortunately only around 20 fans turned up:
The Glazers Out protest was a big dull dud, peaking at about 20 people. There were more going in and out of the Megastore. #MUFC- Kris Voakes (@krisvoakes) June 29, 2019

Don't let a failed protest that was organised by ONE man be the symbol of #GlazersOut
Poor timing. Short notice. Off-season. Makes no sense. Wait for the 'proper' protests when the season actually starts (obviously).https://t.co/FEEJWnMr6R
It was arranged pre season, whilst fans are on holiday, on the hottest day of the year so far and with just over a weeks notice. So the fact 50 reds turned up is good going. However, future protests will be arranged in the correct manner, with the right people. #GlazersOut- #GlazersOut (@GlazersOut1999) June 29, 2019
The turnout for the Glazer out protest is laughable.- David (@United_Roar) June 29, 2019
Problaby the same numbers when Belgium fans turned out to protest Nainggolan not making the World Cup squad.
Our fan base has gotten beyond embarrassing.. by all means protest against the Glazers in whichever way you deem effective but we've just signed an exciting young player for £50 million and all people can reply to the announcement is 'enough is enough #glazersout ' give it a rest- Zak (@utfrzak) June 29, 2019

Wan Bissaka 29 Shirt Number
Glazer Out Protest tomorrow
Maybe Man Utd are announcing Wan Bissaka tomorrow on purpose
As many have pointed out it's not exactly great timing to hold a protest on a day when there's no football, in off season and on the hottest day of the year, with little notice.
However some went as far as suggesting there was a conspiracy and that United had announced the signing of Crystal Palace's Aaron Wan-Bissaka earlier in the day to stop the protest, or at least lessen it.
There certainly needs to be changes at Old Trafford if they are to return to the heights of winning their 13 Premier League titles, and it's not all about 'Fergie' leaving his role as manager.
Will the Glazers ever leave Old Trafford?
