PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Manchester United’s stars never made it to Old Trafford for the match against Liverpool today - but fans made sure they understood why. Hundreds of supporters staged an angry protest outside the Lowry hotel where the players were expecting to leave on team buses and police were involved in running battles trying to keep fans away from the hotel all afternoon, as they sang anti-Glazer chants and set off flares. Meanwhile, thousands of other protesters were involved in even more dramatic scenes a few miles down the road where they managed to break into the Theatre of Dreams. At the doors of the Lowry, police eventually forced protesters away and onto nearby Chapel Street, but the hotel effectively remained under siege. Dozens of riot vans kept the protesters blocked out but it seemed a hostile atmosphere for the players to emerge into, if the game were still to go ahead.
