Manchester United Supporters Trust label their 4-0 defeat to Brentford as a ‘humiliation’

‘Tonight is an embarrassment!’: Manchester United Supporters Trust label their 4-0 defeat by Brentford a ‘humiliation’ in brutal statement… and insist the Glazers are ‘responsible for our decade of decline’

  • Manchester United Supporters Trust have released a statement on Saturday
  • It comes after United were beaten 4-0 by Brentford to leave them bottom 
  • In the statement, MUST slammed the performance in the dismal defeat
  • They insist that the Glazers ‘are responsible for our decade of decline’ 

The Manchester United Supporters Trust have slammed their side’s performance in the 4-0 defeat to Brentford – and laid the blame at the feet of the Glazer family.

MUST have labelled the result as ‘an embarrassment – no, a humiliation’ after United conceded four goals in the first 35 minutes in a dismal showing in west London.

The statement calls for fans to unite amid a period of instability and claims that ‘the owners are primarily responsible for our decade of decline’.

The statement read: ‘We don’t normally comment on matches but extraordinary times call for a different approach…

‘What we have witnessed tonight is an embarrassment – no, a humiliation – for Manchester United fans. And yet in many ways it was not a surprise. It feels like the culmination of a long-term direction of travel.

‘MUST hold the owners of the Club primarily responsible for this new low in our decade of decline. Sir Alex papered over the cracks, but since 2013 the consequences of our owners has been plain to see.

‘On behalf of Manchester United fans everywhere, we demand urgent and radical change. And we as fans – all of us – need to stick together. Fans unity, with one voice aimed at the owners and the club, is needed more than ever right now.

‘Finally, as the fans in the ground today showed, we will always support the shirts. Support the team, and defend the club. Our flag is deepest red, and we will never die.’

The game was over by half-time with United needing to overturn a four goal deficit in one half

It was a dismal day for Erik ten Hag’s side who returned to Manchester with nothing after goals from Josh Dasilva, Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee and Bryan Mbuemo secured Brentford’s win.

Goalkeeper David de Gea’s howler gifted the hosts the opener, while Christian Eriksen was at fault for the second goal on his return to Brentford.

Ten Hag hooked new signing Lisandro Martinez at the break, bringing on Raphael Varane as the Dutchman looked to salvage something from an abysmal evening.

But Brentford comfortably saw the game out as they claimed a famous 4-0 win that heaps misery on crisis-ridden United after they lost their opening game of the season to Brighton last Sunday.
