Old Trafford: Fulham will visit in FA Cup

It has been revealed that some United fans have been able to purchase tickets equivalent to those on offer to away supporters £5 cheaper.

As is common practice for Cup games, the clubs had agreed a standard price for home and away fans, in this case £45. But United members have been able to buy them at a discounted rate of £40.

United claim this is an offer available only to members under a long-standing scheme - one that was also operated for the third-round replay against West Ham last week - but Fulham claim they were not informed of the discount.

A United spokesman said: "Fulham fans are paying the same as United fans who are not members. A discount scheme has existed for members for around 20 years. We're surprised it has come as a surprise to them."

Fulham made their complaint public via their official Twitter account.

"Fulham Football Club has contacted The FA to complain about Man United discounting FA Cup match tickets for their fans," read the tweet.

The FA has received the complaint and is understood to have written to United for a formal explanation.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
