Man Utd CEO says club will look at safe standing
"Standing is something we'll look at," Woodward told fanzine editor Andy Mitten. "I can definitely see the appeal of the German model."
Atmosphere, indeed, was one of the benefits that Woodward had recognised standing could enhance:
"You can still have an amazing atmosphere at Old Trafford... Standing can make a difference though."
Let's hope it's not long before United fans can make that difference standing behind rail seats at Old Trafford!
