United - A Military Operation!

Ever since the Champions League draw put Manchester United and Glasgow Rangers in the same group, there have been mutterings about a possible repeat of the violence that occurred when Rangers last invaded Manchester.

Last time there was a certain degree of being caught unawares, especially with the huge numbers that flooded Manchester and without tickets for the game.

This time around though, the authorities are keen to prevent any occurrences of trouble and talks have already taken place between Rangers, United, the Greater Manchester Police and Strathclyde Police with what is being called as a collective agreement being reached.

This agreement will enforce a zero tolerance towards alcohol consumption and the use of the DW Stadium (Wigan) as a processing area for those supporters (3,500) lucky enough to have obtained a ticket.

In the words of a Rangers spokesperson,

"All travel will be by coach under the official designation of the club. Coaches will travel to the DW Stadium in Wigan where catering and rest facilities have been organized for fans. All (Rangers) fans will meet at the DW Stadium where they will then be escorted by official coach to Old Trafford. Tickets for the match will be allocated by a club official during the coach transfer from Wigan. Tickets will only be issued to the named recipient on the transfer from the DW Stadium to Old Trafford and tickets will not be issued to anyone under the influence of alcohol."

Is it really all worth it considering they`re likely to be heavily beaten on the pitch? And what about the poor people of Wigan being invaded?

wouldn't it be easier to just have no away supporters at each game?

Big brother is watching you! Unfortunately, the last time the Huns came to Manchester they tried to sack the place! However, this does seem a bit OTT, as they will only bringing 6-8000 with tem this time (all with tickets) unlike the 125K that turned up for the UEFA final.
