Very disappointed in this place, I write not so much as a biased visiting football fan but as a person who has heard much over the years about this place and made the effort to travel from South Wales to see a match involving a Welsh team, Swansea City versus Man. Utd. at this ground. I understand that security is necessarily tight given recent public event problems and the amount of people attending however to have to undergo 3 separate body and handbag searches was a bit intimidating.and invasive. Took a lot of enjoyment away and only served to increase discomfort rather than alleviate any worries I may have had before attending. Unfortunately this is now almost unavoidable at major events. Once inside I expected to be impressed by the ground size however I found it cramped and uncomfortable as so many seats have been squeezed in to accommodate the numbers of spectators wishing to attend. Luckily I am short but people all around me were commenting on how uncomfortable they felt. I also expected a higher volume of vocal support from the spectators but the atmosphere was strangely lacking somehow. Maybe that is because ,being a global brand , they have many people attending who have no local connections to Manchester and are merely interested in just being there for the glamorous reputation of the home team. Sadly the whole experience fell way short of what I was hoping for. Wouldn’t bother to go there again.
