PICTURE: One Manchester United Fan Makes Huge Fixture Mistake

Manchester United were in action on Wednesday night against West Ham United down in London at Upton Park for the quarter-final of the FA Cup, but it seems that one Manchester United fan had made a huge mistake, turning up at Old Trafford for the match, rather than travelling south.

George DIY on Twitter, who is from Manchester, tweeted at 4:11pm BST, that he was “On my way to Old Trafford. Let’s hope we beat West Ham. Looking forward to Man Utd bouncing back”

After George’s tweet, he was met by many a Manchester United fan tweeting him to state that the game was being played down in London, with only 3 hours to go until the match. Tweets in which he replied:

Whether this is a social media wind-up, or a genuine mistake from a season ticket holder, it is fantastic viewing, gaining over 600 retweets since yesterday afternoon. Hopefully they got to see the match at some point, with Manchester United winning 2-1 and going through to the semi-finals against Everton at Wembley.
