      Manchester United review security plan with further fan protests expected

      Manchester United are reviewing their use of the Lowry hotel before home games and their other security arrangements after last Sunday’s protests caused the postponement of their match against Liverpool.

      United stay at the Lowry, in the city centre and a 20-minute drive from Old Trafford. While it is understood that the club has been contacted by other hotels in the area to offer their services, United are taking advice from Greater Manchester police and their own security staff.

      United’s next home match is Tuesday’s visit of Leicester City before Thursday’s rearranged fixture with Liverpool when fans are planning another protest outside the stadium.

      Last Sunday’s disturbances reflected deep disaffection with the club’s American owners, the Glazers, and resulted in a number of individuals breaking into Old Trafford and injury to police officers.

      The protest was widely condemned, and Ole Gunnar Solskjær, United’s manager, was asked if the club are considering different arrangements for the Leicester fixture. “We want to keep it as normal as possible of course, because you like to prepare for games in a certain manner,” he said. “It’s impossible to prepare as we normally do with only one day in between the games. So the prep will be different but the off-field stuff hopefully we’ll keep it as normal as possible.”

      Because of the Liverpool game being rescheduled, United face a hectic schedule of four matches in 10 days starting with Sunday’s trip to Aston Villa and ending with Fulham’s visit on 18 May.

      After their league season ends against Wolves on 23 May, United face Villarreal in the Europa League final three days later, having sealed aggregate victory over Roma on Thursday.

      While Solskjær did not criticise supporters, he said the hostility towards the Glazers is an issue: “It makes it more difficult for me and more difficult for the players.

      “We have to focus on getting results and we’ve come a long way. We’ve got to a final now and we just want to focus on doing what we do but doing it better. And hopefully the fans will see that we are working in the right way.

      “I want us all to come together and unite and get up the table and that is my responsibility. I will do what I can to get us one step further in Europe and one step further in the league.”

      He hopes to end the club’s four-year trophy drought against Villarreal: “We’ve had a long spell with no trophies and no finals and now we’ve got a chance and I feel that the team is ready for it.”

      It’s a crazy schedule for them now. And for us.
      But it is what it is. If there is any more postponements then the game should be forfeited and the points awarded to us.

      Utd will be up for this and will be full of confidence and energy even though they have played about 10 more games than us. We will have to be at our absolute best to get something.

      If I’m honest, I would prefer we just go out and play the game. I don’t get too emotional with football so I won’t lose sleep either way.
      I was quite interested in yesterday’s championship relegation battle though. That was tense!

      Actually you have given me an idea. I’m going to pay A few homeless people a couple of hundred quid each to wear a united shirt, throw stones at police and swing on the goal posts. They’ll even get a free dinner when they get locked up. Win win.

      With Jürgen winless at OT I don’t have high hopes for this game, and anything but 3 points basically seals our CL fate. The choke job against Newcastle left us with no room for error.

      I think the fact that they play Leicester there on Tuesday night will probably ensure nothing goes wrong on Thursday. We don't want Leicester getting 3 points by default either.

      They'll rotate against Leicester, stronger team against us.

      If we win this, I reckon we get 4th (if we win our last 3 games which isn’t a sure thing of course).

      A draw isn’t the worst result but leaves us depending on other results.

      Even if we win all 4 games we still depend on other results right? It’s not in our hands

      Correct. If we win it puts us at 60 points, 3 behind Leicester who also have a better GD.

      We basically have to win outright and Leicester to lose at least 1 and hope we can overtake the GD.
