Manchester United fans were left unconvinced after news that the club are looking to ‘revamp’ and modernise Old Trafford, due to their trust issues with the owners of the club.
The Glazer family, United’s outright owners, have faced criticism from supporters over the neglect of the stadium over the years, with some saying that the ground looks “tired and tatty” in comparison to modern stadiums such as the Emirates and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Who has more ability, Daniel James or Nicolas Pepe?
“The Theatre of Dreams” was originally opened in 1910 with a capacity of approximately 80,000. The ground was used as a military depot in the 1930s and was heavily damaged by the German bombing raids of the Second World War before the stadium was eventually extended to an all-seated capacity of 74,994.
Manchester United are conducting a large scale strategic review of their infrastructure, including OT and training ground, amid recognition modernisation is required (quotes via @UWSmag) #MUFC https://t.co/tcNuKRy4RU

Supporters were not impressed with the latest revelations and made their feelings clear once more about the owners on social media.
Here you will find some of the best comments from Manchester United fans:
none of this will materialize…Remember the DOF rumor same time last year ….they will continue to run this club to the ground without investing a single penny frm their pocket…

Only to scrap plans a year later (as with DOF), as they realise it’ll cost money. #MUFC

A large scale strategic review = work out the cheapest possible ways to patch it up.

They do everything they possibly can to make it look like they are going to properly invest….then they don’t invest pic.twitter.com/0R3BJASDTd

And releasing it to the media puppets to report to appease fans who complain meanwhile they won’t do any of the work required instead pocketing it for themselves (Glazers)
