Manchester United fans are considering staging a full-scale protest over Glazer ownership, and the hashtag “EmptyOldTrafford” is trending on Twitter for it. Fans in England staged a massive demonstration ahead of Manchester United’s opening game against Brighton, forcing the club’s authority to close the Manchester megastore. The Red Devils suffered a shocking 2-1 loss in the game that fueled the revolution for Glazer ownership. Many, including club legends, believe that unless this issue is resolved, the fate of England’s most highly decorated club will look bleak for the foreseeable future.

The Glazer family took full ownership of Manchester United for nearly $1000 million. However, it is understood that the club could face a massive debt problem in the coming years due to the mishandling of the financial situation over the last five to six years. Manchester United have never experienced a financial crisis in the last two or three decades and the situation of impending debt pushed excited fans to more demonstrations. After Brighton’s defeat last week, the “EmptyOldTrafford” began trending on Twitter as part of large-scale protests against the Glazer family’s ownership in Manchester. Many fans are also pondering the idea of exiting similar moves by AC Milan fans in 2015 as they urge everyone not to go to Old Trafford. Thousands of United fans took to the streets with the ‘Glazers Out’ banner as they plan to spread their protest on a larger scale across the UK. Amidst this situation, club legend Gary Neville has urged the owners to sell the club as soon as possible.
