Manchester United: Continued trial of singing section at Old Trafford

The section will be operational for United's Premier League game against Fulham on Sunday, following a successful trial in the club's UEFA Champions League clash with Real Sociedad earlier this season.

Neville is pleased the club have listened to supporters calling for the implementation of the section and is confident the measure will create a better atmosphere at old Trafford going forward.

"In an ideal world, you want the whole stadium singing, all 75,000 people, but let's be realistic," said Neville.

"If the singing area can become permanent, that can act as a catalyst for other areas of the stadium.

"The club are doing the utmost to help give fans what they want. It comes from the fans but the club are listening.

"I read the fanzines and see that this has been building in momentum for some time. I'm glad it has come to this."

Fans United - the group of supporters and fanzines which has pushed hard for the singing section to be introduced - is calling for a positive response to strengthen the case to make the section a permanent feature at Old Trafford.

"Let's make it work," the group said.

"Fulham at home isn't usually noted for having a brilliant atmosphere. Let's change that with the spontaneity and wit which makes Reds envied for having the best songbook in football."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). 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.
