Manchester United Fans Are Embarrassed By A Text The Club Sent
Manchester United fans could sure use a pick me up in their Champions League game against Valencia tonight but instead things are getting worse for them as they're embarrassed by a text the club have sent them.
It's only a couple of weeks ago that Manchester United beat Young Boys in their opening Champions League game of the season. Back then it seemed like a good performance to round off a decent week or so that saw them win three games in a row.
The win gave them their third away win on the bounce and things were starting to look pretty good after the losses to Spurs and Brighton that had looked to derail them.
That win though seems like a hell of a long time ago with the draw with Wolves and losses to Derby and West Ham immediately following the Champions League game and all the fall out with Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez dominating the headlines.
United have the chance to put domestic troubles behind them and record a second straight win in Europe and put themselves in a very good position to qualify for the next round.
But ahead of the game fans have been embarrassed as the club have been sending texts to let everyone know there's still tickets available, not a good sign:
The misery continues. @LewisHcook got this text. The disillusionment under Jose has got so bad that you can WALK up and get tickets tonight. For a CHAMPIONS LEAGUE game. Once fans start voting with their feet, Mourinho's definitely finished. What a mess @ManUtd have become #MUFC pic.twitter.com/hnIlALGDRK- Gavin Caney (@GavinCaney) October 2, 2018
Cross city rivals Manchester City are often mocked and criticised for their stadium being lacking in supporters during Champions League games, and it happened in their opening fixture, so United fans won't be pleased to hear that Old Trafford won't be full tonight.
It's not just results that will likely keep the Red Devils' fans away but also performances. On the weekend United were so slow and it was shown by the fact they had less sprints than anyone else in the Premier League.
Will fans stay away from Old Trafford until Mourinho leaves?
