Probably will affect our Bolton supporters, rather than their support as doesn't matter to away fans whether United playing locally or down South. Perhaps even, as United have 90,000 supporters and Reebok only takes 30,000, we can expect a gate of 60,000 at VP from all those turned away from Reebok. Hope the butty hut is fully stocked.

More seriously, if United match is on before or after ours then Social Club could be buzzing.


It's a 5.30 kick off so no reason why you couldn't take in both games I guess.

Good news for landlords of pubs around VP with Sky too.


Latest is the polce have complained Bolton v United game on ESPN at 5 30 could cause trouble so they have asked it to be put back to a lunch time kick off as is usual for that fixture.
I never understand that as Man United get less tickets then anyone in the Premier League for away matches yet have more supporters and do United fans really care about travelling up North from London or Thailand to get involved in a ruck?
Or are there more United fans in the North than the insanely jealous people wish to believe?

United get less tickets for away games because their supporters persist in standing instead of sitting. No they don't come for a ruck but having got used to success and believing that that is their right, they are unable to accept it when events go against them. If Chorley have a good coming season following the last one, they may well experience this with their supporters.

Cant really beleive there is only United supporters who stand up at away grounds, I go United more or less every game, and since 1974 when I first started going, I have never seen Liverpool fans sat down at Old Trafford, most Premier League away supporters stand up throughout the match, in fact Liverpool fans stand up in the Kop every home game, seems a bit silly that, when after all it was 96 of their supporters who lost their lives at a football game standing, resulting in all seating being introduced.
Yet they dont have their away allocation cut.

And surprise,surprise, Liverpool have cut Uniteds allocation from 3,000 to 1,975 on health and safety fears due to them standing during the game.
But still, the Kop will stand throughout the same game, mmm, hopefully United return the compliment for the match at Old Trafford.

You would think and hope Liverpool fans would sit during games, in respect for their fellow supporters who had thier lives cruelly cut short at Hillsborough.

I don't have a problem with standing up.

However I went to Wembley to watch Bolton ( :oops: ) and was suffering with tonsilitis, so sat down & didn't see a thing. A blessing I suppose.

Made me think about youngsters & old folk, who pay good money, and prefer to sit down.

Top flight football supporters seem to be divided into the old guard from the 70's & 80's & the new Sky Sports style supporters and they are two polar opposites.

That's why I prefer Victory Park these days. If you want to sit, you can & if you want to stand, go ont terrace like me.

Wasn't it the local police and Sun journalists who crushed the poor souls at Hillsborough?
