UNSOLD TRAFFORD?

Nope, I've not seen those headlines either since last night.

Half empty stadium for biggest club in the world.

Maybe it was the rain or the storms in Ireland?

Admittedly, Salford is a fair old slog to that fucking shit hole.

40,000 empty seats, yep, we're pretty sure!
If you think Ireland is a *checks notes* "fucking shit hole" wait until you hear what's happening in your own country.

Funny how no one ever posts this one, event though it's 5 years more recent.

They played 6 players 20 or under.


Why are you so insecure that United playing a bunch of kids getting mentioned by the media after a dead rubber with nothing else to talk about winds you up?

The Daily Mail run a massive article about "Pep's Pups" when we named 5 kids to the travelling squad and none of them started.

I think they played as a stating 11 the players who never get a look in , or hardly ever but are part of the highest paid squad in World football. Most are mature , experienced professionals , who United would love to replace.
Amad and Elanga were two young players starting..
I watched Munich so don't know if Amad is a superstar as my mate keeps informing me.

Explanation accepted but given the actual proximity of Salford and Trafford, that's not the way the post reads.

Maybe to you, but it was very clear, as was the sarcasm intended that even if people from Ireland couldn't manage to get over because of the bad weather, what prevented United's supposed huge following in nearby Salford not filling the stadium?

Why would any significant numbers from Salford be travelling to Ireland? It's universally known United have never been from Salford and reside in the borough of Trafford.

For whatever reason, you've seen a trigger and reacted. The only insult of a country came from you.

Let's be honest though. You can't possibly believe any figures produced by the police, especially GMP who are currently being investigated for faking their crime figures on a grand scale.

They had no more than 3 players under the age of 24 at any one time on the pitch until the 89th minute. The way the media carries on it was a team full of 16 to 18 year olds for the whole 90 minutes
