Must Lobby Whitehall

* You may remember that it was Sutcliffe's comments about United's ticket prices that annoyed Ferguson.

Ferguson responded by telling Sutcliffe to go and watch FC United.

MUST chief executive Duncan Drasdo:

"We believe the time has come for the Government to intervene over ticket prices.

"Club owners have been given ample time to put their own house in order and bring prices under control and yet price increases have actually accelerated to unprecedented levels.

"This has created hardship for many long-term supporters (as well as potential new fans) who have given loyalty to their club for so many years only to be rewarded with an ultimatum to pay up or be replaced by someone else who can.

"We understand that the Government sees intervention as the last resort but we believe that the case for such intervention is now overwhelming."
