Where’s Our Famous Atmosphere?

Published on 16th February 2016 by

A 2013 youtube documentary by the Man Utd fan channel RedArmyTV which discusses the decline in the noise levels at Old Trafford in modern times, having previously had a reputation as a fortress and discusses possible solutions to the problem. Roy Keane famously referred to a section of the Old Trafford support as the ‘Prawn Sandwich Brigade’, to somewhat accurately describe the change in football to one which is watched by the middle classes with the working man priced out of buying tickets.

Of course many Man Utd fans who were fed up with the corporate feel of modern football and felt alienated from Manchester United went on to form the new club FC United of Manchester, subjects of the great 2013 documentary Punk Football, FCUM have won several promotions and are currently just a couple more away from the Football League.
