In a week of turmoil at Old Trafford where David Moyes was sacked after only 10 months in power there is another change being applied to the fans sat in J Stand or now commonly known as the NE Quadrant at Old Trafford. The Season Ticket holders in J Stand are being told to move out so that the club can introduce a ‘singing section’!
You may well ask why this affects me, well it doesn’t anymore as I didn’t renew my season tickets in J Stand after 24 years of sitting there myself, but I still have a number of friends that I’ve known for many years that sit there & to move them out to create a singing section is just very poor & a bad move by the club.
I know the atmosphere at Old Trafford has waned over the years & the great roar the crowd used to deliver only comes out on special occasions but United is no different to any other club nowadays in the Premier League which is a shame as it was the atmosphere that got me hooked on going to football matches.
So why does the club need a singing section & of all places intend putting it in J Stand? Why not make 100 or 200 blocks of seats all around the ground earmarked for fans that want to sing throughout the matches rather than in just one section. Surely the noise needs to come from all across the fantastic stadium rather than just from J Stand?
my thoughts are with my friends who are being scattered far & wide across the stadium.
