Loads of Man Utd fans react to brilliant announcement about safe standing

Today we had some good news about safe standing at Old Trafford.

Manchester United have received permission to trial rail barrier seating in the J-Stand, so when football resumes hopefully it will be ready to boost the atmosphere at the Theatre of Dreams.

As we said earlier as the news broke, the timing of this announcement is strange because football is currently suspended. It only teases us at a time fans are desperate for the beautiful game to return.

But that can’t happen until it is safe to do so. The UK government — as well as the football leagues — are waiting for a time to return to action, but the longer it drags on you have to fear for the remainder of the current campaign.

The 2019/20 season could make for a very short episode of Sky Sports’ Premier League seasons…

United fans have been reacting to the news on social media and they’re happy about it.

Safe standing has been in the pipeline for years and we are finally making steps forward.

Here’s what fellow Reds had to say about safe standing being trialled at Old Trafford:
