Fans unhappy with Ed Woodward, Glazers

The roots of this planned walkout are, undoubtedly, seated in the 0-2 defeat at home to Burnley. A number of fans at Old Trafford took to chanting against Ed Woodward. The unpopular Glazers will mark 15 years of ownership this year after a hostile takeover back in 2005. While Sir Alex Ferguson was the manager during those years, the alleged failings of the Glazers' handling of the club went under the radar (according to fans on Twitter). Earlier this week, in the pre-match press conference ahead of their FA Cup tie, Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer pleaded his case. He took the example of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool. "Jurgen spent four years building his team and they're doing well now, so of course, I've said so many times, it's not going to be a quick fix," he said.
