It seems some protesting Manchester United fans are doing what they can to get their clash with Liverpool at Old Trafford suspended again.
The passionate supporters are taking a stand against their club’s ownership – The Glazers – by… letting down the tyres on the away team’s coach.
A bus, typically used to carry the Liverpool players and staff to stadia, has been stopped on the streets of Manchester by protestors’ cars.
We at Empire of the Kop would like to add: we back United fans’ right to protest against their owners, but we don’t think attacking our team’s bus is the best way to go about it…

LFC should say ‘enough of this nonsense’ and head back home. Where were these protests on Tuesday night when they were gifting 3 points to Leicester playing their reserve side?
Game should be cancelled and the points awarded to Liverpool.
I agree game should be cancelled
And points awarded to us but also man utd should be deducted points as this has gone beyond the club protest as it has happened twice against us but nothing happened against leicester
They’re Mancs say no more.
