    Ok, so withn10 minutes gone, behind us is a single seat that hasn't been taken.

    An oriental ,young man wanders up the steps with a printout of his ticket searching for his seat

    It is this seat.

    He goes and stands in the spot and takes his phone out.

    He takes lots of photos( you could hear it clicking away) and then mumbles away into his phone.

    He then spends 15 minutes, looking at his phone ( as we are abusing that ******* friend) and then shuffles off.

    Totally bizzare! We couldn't work out if he was just there to watch Liverpool? hadn't the foggiest what was going on? Assumed he was in the away end?

    we all assumed he just wanted to be there and was confused with the whole experience.....

      This is partly why I often don't bother with the 45 quid plus cost against the big teams. So many bloody tourists.

      East Asian (Asian describes a person, oriental describes a thing) people sometimes just turn up to events or go to museums etc, take a series of photos for social media and then leave without actually watching or looking at anything.

      I think it's quite SWEET that we get football tourists nowadays. Where's the harm?

      There as a bizarre Klopp look a like outside the west doing Klopp mannerisms. To be fair he was a great doppelgänger. Teeth n all.

      Oriental is fine to use.

      Sadly they weren't there to see us.
      If they were they'd have spent £500 in the club shop and Mr Barber would have taken an 'exit fee' at the door.

      This.......very, very common and often discussed with my Asia team. Old Trafford is absolutely packed with people doing this (or watching the whole game through their phone)
