It’s part of the measures put in place following the Man City incident. More details will be available once the findings have been published
or maybe its an attempt to repel burglars by breeze bock security firm, boarding up, after the catering franchises inside the stadium have already been burgled 3 times. in 7 days? :unsure::whistle::oops:

I'm not sure that helps.
People then all have to walk round the parked team coach to get to the turnstiles.
If there is a large crowd it means cramming more people into a smaller space...
I am.sure that more qualified people than me have looked at it though.

Wasn't it boarded up last season - and then when we returned in August it was open.

Perhaps this is just a delayed repair/reinstatement of the fence?

No, it's as Dave T says "It’s part of the measures put in place following the Man City incident".

....I know ... but I did wonder if it was a case of closing the stable (stadium) door, after the 'horse' (Farrs Caterings kiosks stock) had bolted ( been nicked) :cautious:

Find somewhere else for the away team bu.
It a service area for the stadium. Supposed to house the bins and deliveries. So is the ideal place to house a team bus as it was never meant to be an access route.
Things are being put in place to make it safer for fans, that may mean a few have to adjust their normal route by about an extra 25 feet unfortunately.

The club should sell it as a health benefit to help fans keep fit and healthy by walking further ;)

I always use the same turnstile until we lose then switch, and switch back again as we go, my mate does the exact opposite of what I do, I always drink out of my United mug during the match day, I always wear my current United shirt, silly?, I guess so.
