A Plane Will Fly Over Turf Moor With ‘Ed Out’ Banner Attached
It looks like some Manchester United fans have had enough.
It is being reported that United fans are planning an ambitious attempt to show their anger at chief executive Ed Woodward - by hiring a plane carrying a message banner.
Woodward has been under fire for several weeks now after failing to land the Red Devils a much-needed centre-back during the summer transfer window, and Sunday's defeat at Brighton looks to have been the straw that broke the camel's back.
United's defensive frailties were all to obvious in the 3-2 loss, and Woodward was pictured looking far from happy in the Amex Arena stands after the full-time whistle.
But it's Woodward who is in the sights of United fans, who have chipped in some serious dough to plan a protest during the clash with Burnley on September 2nd.
Despite the disappointing start to the campaign, it appears manager Jose Mourinho is being exempt from criticism at the moment, despite being the man who put his faith in struggling defenders Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof.
But what do you make of the plane plan? Here's what the rest of social media thought of the idea
WTF is a plane carrying a banner going to achieve? Probably just give Woodward an idea for a new sponsor and official partner flying over Old Trafford every game

Can understand the sentiment behind the 'Ed out LUHG' plane banner.
But whoever has funded this, has more money than sense.
Woodward was integral in bringing the glazers to old Trafford.
So is in a position of strength.
Rather than vulnerability.
