Old Trafford is like a "police state" which leaves supporters paralysed by fear, Colin Hendrie from the Independent Manchester United Supporters Association claimed on Wednesday.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson compared the atmosphere at Tuesday´s Barclays Premier League win over Birmingham to a funeral, urging fans to back the team more vocally.

Those comments have upset the IMUSA spokesman, who said: "I think he could benefit from sitting in the ground. You can´t stand up to make a noise. If you try to stand up, you´ve got stewards who are ejecting you, they´re taking your season ticket away from you. It´s almost like a police state."
