M.U.S.T leads the way as the first supporters trust to make the pledge to Common Goal

4. Rail Seats (Safe Standing) make their Premier League debut
M.U.S.T has been at the forefront of the protracted battle to bring in Safe Standing from the beginning of the campaign. When we started over 20 years ago, and for most of the years since, until recently, we were told we were wasting our time. In the last year or so it has become clear we are on the brink of victory.

The announcement yesterday that a small number of Rail Seats have been installed at Premier League Wolves Molineux stadium is confirmation that it is only a matter of time now.

We have been in discussions with Manchester United for perhaps 2 years about bringing in a trial at Old Trafford, working with Rail Seat manufacturers to come up with custom designs for our stadium, and there is plenty of support for this but still some resistance. Now is the time for United to step up and lead the way with a full scale trial. We'll be going back to The Club now to progress this - victory is in sight.

5. After Arsenal - what next to defend our away Cup allocations? 
United supporters headed to the Emirates Stadium  on Friday evening to help Ole add to his illustrious FA Cup record, another 6000 who were successful in the ballot for tickets watched on with justified anger as well as envy. Under FA rules Arsenal should have provided 9,000 tickets to the away team but Arsenal slashed that by over 40% for ’safety reasons’. Undaunted, the depleted red army redoubled its efforts to support Ole and the team to another memorable result. Arsenal have deployed the same tactic for cup matches against Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs in recent years while having no problem offering full allocations to Lincoln and Brentford, the latter only four months ago.

MUST lobbied the FA to challenge the decision and our club made strong and protracted representations but there was no time to reverse the decision for this match. But MUST will not be letting this injustice rest. We are now using our links with national supporter bodies to good effect and will work together to expose the practices used by Arsenal and a few other clubs, and lobby the FA and other key parties to act to preserve the integrity of its own rules.
