Old Trafford was at its best in the early 1990's when the roofline was the same all the way round. Now its a complete mess and the place looks like a steelworks. The stands dont match whether your inside or outside the ground, theres no leg room and getting refreshments at half time is impossible. Apart from the big matches theres no atmosphere either.
Bobby Charlton must have been having a laugh when he cristened the ground 'the theatre of dreams', he clearly wasnt looking from a spectators... (read more)

Visited Old Trafford for the first time as an away fan.
At first sight it's a reasonably imposing sight, but close up you see how old a stadium it really is.
Inside there is zero leg room, and you are almost sat on the knee of your neighbour. The concourses outside are far to narrow creating major congestion at half time. Queue's are processed so slowly you have no chance of leaving on h/t whistle, queuing and being back in time for kick off.
The home support is very poor. At times it... (read more)

im a UNITED fan and it was my first time going to Old Trafford. I went on the tour and i thought it was good i mean my mum enjoyed it and shes a Tottenham fan. It is good because you have the chance on the tour to sit in fergies spot and when you go in the changing rooms well i would say that fan was the most popular and when you walked in everyone rushed to ronaldos seat but personally im a TEVEZ so i went their. Once the tourist talked you through the changing rooms you were allowed to... (read more)

ive visited old trafford many times and i always thought atmosphere was very poor the catering tastes like it has been dragged in manchester ship canal for a week then cooked.
the hospitality is rather poor aswell. it is more of a stadium for familys and day trippers, not one for the die hard football fan.
it is like lego just bits stuck onto other bits..
and the prices for tickets is a mockery to the english workin man!
plus no leg room...

after visiting Old Trafford i have come to my conclusion regarding the atmosphere! i really couldn't find anything good to say about it. on arrival i was amazed by the smell that surrounded it, it somewhat smelt like a swamp. once you get in i feel the atmosphere was very poor! I studied English literature at Oxford university and can honestly say there was more noise in the library than Old Trafford. I have supported united for many years know but have never had the chance to visit that... (read more)

Old Trafford is a large and modern stadium yet still manages to be fairly compact which helps with good views and can contribute towards a good atmosphere. Atmosphere does depend on who is playing, when, and most importantly which stand you sit in. It looks really impressive as you approach the ground from any direction. It looks smart, modern and imposing although, since its expension to 76000 the noise does not travel to outside the ground so you cannot her the singing as you approach... (read more)

Old trafford is nothing more than a money making machine, the the $$$$ have been put before the fans. There is no atmosphere, surprising considering theres nearly 80,000 people there, must be too many toffs who dont lower themselves to singing with everyone else. The place was a mess, there was litter everywhere, for the stadium belonging to the Premiership Champions you would expect better. (read more)

Old Trafford is a terrible stadium! Yes it big but theres no atmosphere and no room, its basically 76,000 battery chickens! They just keep expanding to make more money with no appreciation for the fans. The stadium is not usually tidy or particularly well after on the occasions I have seen it, maybe the Glazers have spent all the budget to look after it, ha ha ha (read more)

Olt Trafford has a great atmosphere, especially at the high pressure european nights. The seats cause are crammed in together and theres no leg room, maybe a few less seats and better conditions for supporters. On the whole though Old Trafford is a great stadium. (read more)

I've been to old trafford twice in the past 12 months, to see chelsea v blackburn in the FA cup semi finals, and chelsea v man u at the beginning of this season. both times, i was hugley dissapointed with the ground itself, what with all the hype about its size and atmosphere, to me it looked large from the outside, but once in seemed small, cramped and unimposing, basically a letdown. As for the fans, they made something of a noise when man u were putting a quality move together, and were... (read more)

The seats at Old Trafford Football Stadium are very small in my opinion, and downstairs is very congested. I think it's a poor stadium, too many seats ,and not a patch on other Stadiums. (read more)

Old Trafford Football Stadium has a good atmosphere and is good value for money. I think that Old Trafford is the best football ground in England, and I have been to many stadiums including Anfield, Emirates, City of Manchester and Wembley. There is no spitting, and all the areas between fans and away supporters are blocked by police. The atmosphere can't be complained about if it is a boring England match. If you want to go, I recommend that you go and watch the reds. (read more)

Great game in a great stadium. Better off parking at the cricket ground although it will still be tough getting away, looking at a good 30 minutes to get traffic to a decent pace. Food prices are no more expensive than other grounds, not getting a brilliant deal, but no worse than you'd expect. Good place to go if you want to watch world class football in comfort, not so good if you're looking for an on your feet singing till your throat bleeds atmosphere, try the Park head. (read more)

This was my worst experience in over forty years of attending First Division and Premiership League football.
We were treated like sheep by the Police and aggressively searched on arrival.
The fans in the tier above were spitting and throwing small items at us.
Complaints to the stewards went unheard.
We were held back for over half an hour by the Police.
We were all directed away from the stadium by the Police in a direction we did not want to go, as we had parked on the other side of the... (read more)

Old Trafford had a poor atmosphere even when Manchester United scored, and not much better when I saw England play there. Very little to do around the ground so have to stay in city centre until time to make way to ground (read more)

Being a life long supporter of Manchester United, I thought I had to see the Theatre of Dreams for myself, Upon my arrival, the massive Old Trafford stadium looked very daunting and intimidating, if it did that to me imagine what it does to the away support! The trophy room was stacked high with cups and plates, and the two shops provided a lot of choice. The stadium features state of the art facilities, and even has a prison area for the few over enthusiastic Mancunians. The pitch is... (read more)
