Again you choose to tell only part of the story, the part which paints the club in poor light, why don't you tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth about the seats and the plaques ?raycreative wrote: ↑Tue Jan 22, 2019 7:34 amHow cynical can you get
Manchester United honoured the memory of Sir Matt Busby on Saturday before the game with Brighton
They had a one minute applause before the game to remember the legacy of the great man and what he had achieved
The fans sang "Stand up for the Busby Babes" and other Matt related songs
A nice gesture by the club eh!
I wondered how the fans would have felt if they had known that in season 2016/07 the 4 seats in the directors box that were reserved for Matt and his family were confiscated by the club a,to use Woodwards own words to Sir Matts grand daughters, the club has decided to move forward
It seem they decided in terms of giving fans a warm feeling to spend more they might have thought again
I doubt it!!
Just to put things straight, here is an article from the Guardian .
I think that should make you STFU over that one.Manchester United says the club will continue to honour the memory of Sir Matt Busby in the directors’ box at Old Trafford despite concerns from fans about his family being moved out.
The plaques have been taken off the seats but the four plates bearing the name Busby have been given to the family at their request.
It is understood United will have a new plaque made for the seat that Busby sat in, similar to those created to mark the achievements of Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Bobby Charlton.
Following Busby’s death in 1994 the directors’ box seats were transferred to his children Sandy and Sheena, who both died during the 2014-15 season. United made the seats available to Busby’s grandchildren for one more year and then offered six (three apiece) complimentary season tickets in the Sir Bobby Charlton Stand plus free hospitality.
“The club continues to provide tickets and hospitality for the descendants of Sir Matt but with the passing of his children that hospitality will continue in the Warwick Suite,” the club said in a statement.
“My dad always said it was a privilege to have those box tickets,” Amanda Eustace, one of Busby’s granddaughters, told the Manchester Evening News. “We have been extremely grateful to United for what they have given us over the past years. We do still have season tickets, which is absolutely fantastic.”
