As i said earlier, the club have announced a price freeze on tickets for next season, article relating to it here

Man Utd to freeze ticket prices

The cost of watching Manchester United will remain the same next season
Manchester United has confirmed it is freezing ticket prices next season.

There has been criticism of the Glazers for price rises since their takeover in 2005, and many fans have joined a green -and-gold protest against the owners.

As recently as this month, there had speculation that further increases were in the pipeline for fans of the Old Trafford club.

But the club has now announced that prices will be kept on hold for the 2010/11 season.

The club said the price of attending a match at Old Trafford for members and season-ticket holders would remain priced from £27 to £49.

And fans aged over 65 will continue to pay half the adult price, capped at £20, with junior tickets staying at £10.

Debt at Manchester United is £716.5m and a number of wealthy United fans - the "Red Knights" - want to wrest control of the club away from the Glazer family.

Working with the "Red Knights" is the Manchester United Supporters' Trust (Must), which is running a vocal campaign to bring about a change of ownership and has recruited nearly 150,000 members and the fans' group presented the ticket-price freeze as their first "victory".

"This clearly demonstrates the power supporters have when they come together as a unified group", said Must chief executive Duncan Drasdo.

"We know from sources inside the club that the Glazers are very concerned about the growing Green & Gold campaign which has seen the membership counter on the Manchester United Supporters Trust website increase from 36,000 two months ago to 145,000."

"The campaign is only two months old but this is an incredible victory at such an early stage and will undoubtedly be a huge boost to supporters."

The Glazer family have said they have no intention of selling the club, while United chief executive David Gill has said he is happy with the club's current business model.

Look at that. A lovely, clearly legible article within a beautiful sculpted square quotation box. I think this thread is all the better for it!

But Moyes reckons he'll be playing for Everton next season, then going to United.

I'd say Moyes will want to keep United sweet too, if he has any designs on stepping up after the ferg retires.

I was just thinking that, but then again, there's always someone whinging about United tapping up their players.

It happens in football, like it or not.

I think the rumour actually goes that "Moyes got wind of a meeting", maybe the club had given permission to the player, and not told Moyes.

Who knows though?

And as I said, your mate David will want to keep United sweet himself.

Really? I dunno, I mean, Everton, have one hell of a case for tapping up if true dont they?

Wouldnt mind seeing how he progresses next season, think he will end up as a CB and could well be worth a punt if he continues his progress well
