Manchester United fans plan hour-long sit-in against Glazer family

Manchester United fans are planning to ramp up their protests against the Glazer family by staging an hour-long sit-in at Old Trafford during their match against Nottingham Forest on August 26.

The protest is being organized by The 1958, a group of fans who have been critical of the Glazers' ownership of the club for many years. They accuse the Glazers of "18 years of ignorance and silence" and say that they have "plunged the club into debt" with their leveraged buyout in 2005.

The sit-in is scheduled to take place from 2:30pm to 3:30pm, during the second half of the match. Fans will be asked to gather at the Holy Trinity statue outside Old Trafford before making their way to the stadium.

A spokesperson for The 1958 said: "We want answers and the full removal of the Glazer family from every foundation of our club. We believe that this protest is the best way to show our dissatisfaction with their ownership and to demand change."

The Glazers announced in November last year that they were willing to sell the club, but the process has been slow and there is no guarantee that a deal will be reached.

Some fans believe that the Glazers will not sell the club at all, but will instead take an offer of investment in exchange for a minority stake.

The sit-in is the latest in a series of protests against the Glazers by Manchester United fans. In April, thousands of fans marched through the streets of Manchester to demand the owners' removal.

It remains to be seen whether the Glazers will be forced to sell the club, but the protests are sure to continue until the issue is resolved.
