OK, I'm not one to ever praise anything from the red half of Manchester being a blue, but nonetheless, after yesterdays utter balls up I think this is worth a shout and well done Man U.

Firstly, Man U fans with tickets for yesterdays 'game' will be refunded and also get free entry into the match.

A statement on the Manchester United website said: “Ticket refunds will be given - and entry to the rescheduled match on Tuesday will be free - following the abandonment of Manchester United’s home match against Bournemouth on Sunday.

“Season Ticket holders (for their equivalent match ticket price), match ticket purchasers and Matchday VIP purchasers will receive a refund.

“Any supporters who would have accessed the stadium with their Season Card or Membership Card on Sunday will be able to do so again, and supporters with paper tickets can use them again too, all free of charge.

“Replacement paper tickets can be issued and can be reprinted at Ticketing & Membership Services on Monday or Tuesday. Fans who come to the stadium to do this on Tuesday are advised to arrive early please to avoid queues.

“As previously confirmed on ManUtd.com, the rearranged match will kick off at 20:00 BST on Tuesday, 17 May.”

Also, Bournemouth fans will get free travel:-

A statement from the club read: "AFC Bournemouth will offer supporters free coach travel to the Cherries' rearranged fixture against Manchester United on Tuesday, May 17 (8pm kick off).

"Supporters with a valid match ticket will be eligible for free travel."

Shouldn't this be in "freebies" then?

Shouldn't this be in "freebies" then?


Thought of that but to claim the 'freebie' you need to have spent money in the first place (similar to Checkoutsmart etc, but on a grander scale)
Free coaches are being paid for by AFC Bournemouth. Manchester United refused to assist. Horrible, horrible club

Just what does Bournemouths travel arrangements have to do with MUFC?

Er, the fact that it was a security firm using MUFC's stadium that caused MUFC (and not Bournemouth) to abandon a game that Bournemouth's fans had paid money to go see? It's not exactly rocket science to work that one out - should be MUFC reimbursing Bournemouth's fans.

It's the security firm that is responsible. You're just the type of person to hate anything Manchester United without logical reason.

How exactly have you worked out that I hate Manchester United for no logical reason? And that my opinion would be based on my supposed hatred? On the other hand I've got a pretty good idea your opinion might be slightly biased towards Manchester United, no idea why...

MUFC's stadium, their responsibility. You have an extremely blinkered view.

Man Utd allowed those fans to travel when there was a suspect package in the stadium left by a contractor in their employ. It's entirely Manchester Uniteds fault. It's Man Utds responsibility to ensure that the stadium is ready for matchday. Nobody elses. You're completely blinkered pal.

If Man U had anything about them, they'd put free coaches on for their fans too. London to Manchester twice in a week will start to cost a few bob.
It's a shame people can't put their allegiances to one side here. The main thing is the safety issue. The blame game is something that is POINTLESS and it should be left to the authorities to look into. Only once a full investigation has been completed will we know who is at fault.

Two outside companies used Old Trafford for a training exercise, the security firm that provided the "fake bomb" signed off all paper work stating that ALL (13 devices in all) the devices were recovered when infact only 12 had been recovered.

Manchester United did everything correct. Hence 20mins before the game they found a device that SHOULD NOT OF BEEN THERE.... and rightly so evacuated the stadium.

You know it's a football thread when there's instant argument and someone mentions a murder weapon by the 14th comment.

I wouldn't bother mate. They aren't interested in the facts, only in making the most of any opportunity to **** off Man Utd. One stated it's entirely Man Utd's fault. That's what you're up against.

Wouldn't waste the quid if I was you as the bet's bound to bomb!!..............Bournemouth will be looking to do the double over United this season and blow them away with their Dynamite duo up front. Chances are United will have more luck finding a bomb than a goal!!
Sooner dead than red. Come on Bournemouth, stick it up the SCUM

It's still Man Utd's responsibility. It's their stadium, and their responsibility to ensure it's fit and ready when the fans arrive. Even if you type with CAPS LOCK ON, these are the facts.
It was left there on weds by all accounts so the fact the match was on Sunday and Utd have daily stadium tours you have to ask the question exactly what security checks do Man Utd perform.I see they have paraded the security firm boss on TV hung out to dry..I agree with others it 100% was NOT Bournemouth fault so Utd should do the decent thing and help transport the few who can travel all that way from south coast on a work day with evening kick off.

The facts are this. It is Man Utds responsibility to ensure the stadium is ready for matchday. If they let private companies use the stadium, they are still fully liable for any issues caused by such use. These are facts.
All those poor united season ticket holders from the home counties..
Am I missing something, I don't see where the deal is here? If you didn't have a ticket before Sunday, you can't take advantage of this offer? If you did have a ticket, you're probably aware of what's happening.

Is your house the size of Old Trafford?
Guys it's already cost us £3 mil.

We could have bought half of Leicesters squad for that so go easy on us yeah?
It's United's stadium so it's their responsibility? So who's fault was Hillsborough? Get real.
