“How bad is that?” Gary Neville slams Manchester United tweet laughs at fans being shut out of the ground in rude message promoting their sponsors
- Manchester United fans will watch from home when their side face Newcastle
- Now they also have to pay £ 14.95 to do so in ridiculous new pay-per-view games
- Lack of reading in the room, United’s Twitter account Then tweeted a distasteful joke
- Gary Neville has criticized the Premier League’s recent move and was furious
- The Old Trafford page later deleted the tweet, but not before angry fans saw it
Manchester United are giving a master class in alienating their fan base at the moment, with club legend Gary Neville furious over the club’s behavior again.
The Premier League drew a furious backlash from supporters after announcing a new pay-per-view service – which required viewers to pay an additional £ 14.95 to watch games behind closed doors on top of their BT Sport and Sky packages.
Manchester United are one of the first teams to have appeared on the Box Office channels and they travel to Newcastle on Saturday night to play in an empty St. James’ Park.
Gary Neville was furious over Manchester United’s latest PR disaster on social media
The Old Trafford side face a trip to Newcastle on Saturday, leaving fans at home £ 14.95
Ignoring the fans’ recent concerns, United tweeted a tasteless post before later deleting it
Apparently unaware of the fans’ misery of being squeezed with a new charge to see their team in the midst of employment insecurity across the country, all the while a return to their second home next to the pitch remains distant, United tweeted:
‘There is at least no climbing up 14 stairs to get to the far end of St James’ Park for this … where do you see #NEWMUN from? ‘
The post was later deleted, but not before Neville had seen it, to which the former right-back and Sky pundit replied: ‘How bad is this tweet?’
The former United right-back responded angrily before the tweet was deleted and fans agreed
The Old Trafford side have a nightmare both on and off the pitch so far this season
Fans repeated Neville’s view in the response section, such as @CalFerguson, who wrote: ‘A gloomy reflection of modern football at the top level.’
United were also at the center of Project Big Picture, a plot slammed as a power grab by the Big Six in the Premier League and later canned after a major uprising.
It has also been so bad on the pitch where United need a positive result on Saturday to help place the 6-1 defeat against Tottenham earlier.
