The 1958

Some things are worth fighting for...

We pull back the curtains on Wembley

Jun 6, 2023

Today we pull back the curtains on Wembley 🧵

We have actively been protesting at our previous two trips to Wembley against Newcastle and Brighton.

On Saturday with it being the last game of the season, the worlds media watching and the gimps attending, the club and cowardly despicable owners targeted fans again.

We know 💯 for a fact we have been censored at away grounds

We know 💯 for a fact Sky have censored fan protests

We know 💯 for a fact that the stewards tried it at Old Trafford earlier in the season.

We know 💯 for a fact this happened again on Saturday.

There was no glazer chants or visuals because fans in the ground because fans were prevented from entering green & blue zones with banners or flags. This happened to 58 lads and supporters of the cause against this ownership. Pounced on, manhandled, bruised, flags confiscated and ripped out of hands and then thrown out of the ground. Flags paid for out of our own pockets.

Working class lads with tickets, paying for travel and time spent travelling not even getting into ground to watch the final who wanted to peacefully protest against these rotten owners. Just let that sink in and realise the level of rotten we are dealing with here.

This has been a long season. We have never dealt in speculation and never will. We are not hooligans, we are not thugs. We are just a bunch of honest lads trying to do the right thing for our club. It’s not for any recognition, it’s not for any financial gain, we pay for everything out of our own pockets. it’s not for anything other than the love of our club and the memories of those who instilled United into us. With a hope that one day our fanbase can be United again. Division is a tool use by Glazer to maintain control.

The key to the Glazers is through the looking glass. Black is white and white is black. Nothing is has it appears. 

Ask yourself what there was no visible banners or audible chants ?

Ask yourself why the club are keen to try and manufacturer an atmosphere?

Ask yourself why Glazer bucket hats and flags are given out?

Ask yourself why Fergie is being wheeled out to sit with the gimps?

Ask yourself why we are constantly being censored?

It’s to create an illusion of unity for the ownership for a worldwide TV audience. We use bedsheets because it’s a statement of poor vs rich, fans vs corporate greed. Going back to the roots, family and community of what our club is built on. We see it as a protest for the common match fan against heartless capitalism. 

They did not want a repeat of this for the final:

So, the stewards who ejected fans were from United. The ticket office staff were from United. Wembley staff tried so hard to get lads back in but United staff were having none of it. They slipped up and said “it’s because of your flags”. Even the head Wembley steward said “but they’re regulation size so what’s wrong with them?”

To which they replied “that’s what Wembley are telling us”. He laughed and said “I am Wembley. What’s wrong with the flags?!”

Nobody NOBODY is more important or bigger than the future of our club. Not you, not us, no player, manager or Fergie. Yes, Fergie was a brilliant manager and delivered success in-spite of Glazer. Do not think for one minute he hasn’t been used as a shield to protect them. This was happening when he was managing and is still happening now. He is not blameless in them being here. We need a reset of the entire club and this cannot happen with Glazer in control. Through the looking glass, remember!?

We will continue to follow our plans and strategy our way. We have automated blocking in place for anyone trolling the account, trying to incite violence (we are not from that life) or derailing any messaging and using us to spin their own narrative.

For you, for us, for each other.
