Manchester United considering handing out song sheets to improve Old Trafford atmosphere

Jose Mourinho

Manchester United are reportedly considering handing out sheets with chant lyrics around Old Trafford before games, in a bid to improve the atmosphere in the stadium.

Gaffer Jose Mourinho has complained about the lack of atmosphere inside the 75,000 seater stadium.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho recently complained that the club's home matches were too "quiet", and speaking at a recent fan forum, the club's head of venue operations Dan Schofield said that they will consider the introduction of song sheets when he was asked about the prospect by a supporter.

"To this end, senior management plans to further discuss this topic with fan groups and other interested parties and stakeholders to listen to concerns, ideas, and then to put forward recommendations to help facilitate positive change".

Last month the United manager described Old Trafford as a "quiet stadium", comparing it unfavourably with the noise generated at Portsmouth's Fratton Park.


They also came up with an action plan which included a review of ticket pricing, making tickets more affordable for young fans, sitting vocal fans together and pushing for a safe standing area to be introduced.

One suggestion was the printing of song sheets - which seems to be the preferred choice of the club.

A fan representative at the forum also suggested printed lyrics of popular United chants could be handed out to supporters before they enter the ground, or printed in the matchday programme, to encourage more fans to join in, .

The Manchester United Supporters' Trust (MUST) issued a response following Mourinho's latest comments saying it was not an issue specific to United fans.
