United supporters seeking government intervention over sky high ticket prices...

Supporters group MUST (Manchester United Supporters Trust) is seeking government intervention over the ever escalating cost of match tickets. Reds fans have seen the cost of season tickets rise sharply since the Glazer family took over the club. Minister for sport Gerry Sutcliffe has spoken out about fears that some fans are being priced out of watching the Red Devils.

In response multi-millionaire Sir Alex Ferguson made the mistake of once again scoring a PR own goal by pointing out that Chelsea and Arsenal tickets are more expensive, he went further by telling fans that if they weren't happy then they should go and watch FC United. It seems that Fergie has forgotten that it's the fans who've been paying his wages.

Sutcliffe is a United supporter, but the minister has concerns about the cost of watching top flight football at all professional clubs and especially those in the Premier League.
