There has been a predictably snarky response to Old Trafford’s new paint job

Always going to happen

Old Trafford

Old Trafford is getting a new lick of paint.

If you don’t want to read a piece about the reaction to Old Trafford getting painted, click away now. We’re not trying to pull the wool over your eyes. This article will do exactly as it says on the tin.

You see, moaning is a big part of being a football fan. When there’s no actual football on, they have to keep themselves entertained somehow. Usually, gossip and transfer rumours will fill this hole in between matches. However, sometimes the only thing the discussion requires to get going is a stadium getting painted.

Case in point, Old Trafford. To the Liam Lowe’s credit, he managed to perfectly capture how mundane the scene is. An overcast sky coupled with a lot of metal and concrete. There isn’t a hope in hell of this making it on the front of a postcard.

Snark week

Football fans are bored. So the news that Manchester United’s ground is being painted was enough to keep them occupied for a bit. Mostly by cracking wise.

Cue the Richard Keys b*nter vine.

Apparently, the fact that they left this task so late is a sign of how poorly the club is being run.

Yes, we’re still talking about the paint.

At least Utd’s ground has a better name than that of Spurs.

Announce… anyone.

Time for an upgrade?

Don’t worry, the season will start soon.
