Everton Football Club are working with Greater Manchester Police to issue key safety and security advice to travelling Blues ahead of this weekend's fixture at Old Trafford.
Following on from last season's fixture at Old Trafford, Greater Manchester Police have been working with safety and security teams at both Manchester United and Everton as well as meeting with fan representatives from both clubs, to ensure that Sunday's game will take place in a safe and enjoyable environment.
As a result the following measures will be put in place on Sunday 5 October:
Alcohol is not permitted on the street in Manchester city centre or Trafford and this will be enforced around the stadium for home and away fans.
There are no pubs around Old Trafford which cater for visiting supporters.
Everton fans will be able to purchase a drink in the ground – a maximum of two alcoholic drinks per visit to the bar per person. Turnstiles open at 10am.
All drinks (including soft drinks) will be decanted and these arrangements are the same for home fans situated near to the segregation line.
As is our policy at Goodison Park, supporters found using pyrotechnics inside or outside of the stadium will be the subject of action by the Club and the police. Such is the determination of the authorities to eradicate the use of pyrotechnics from football, any supporter found to be using them could be liable to a criminal conviction and, in certain cases, imprisonment.
As a Club, Everton will impose an indefinite ban on any supporter who violates the strict no-pyrotechnics policy.

I know we have some less than savoury supporters but have been to Man Utd on numerous occasions and they donÂt seem to make themselves welcome, let alone away supporters. Maybe they and the police should be looking a little closer to home.
Just a thought like....

I can't see us getting much joy regardless of United's injury crisis and suspension of Rooney.
United may have lots of injuries at the back but our attacking play has virtually dried up in recent matches so I can't see how we are going to hurt them all that much, at the same time how do we keep out the likes of Di Maria, Van Persie, Falcao?
Despite us having recorded just one win so far, I'll find myself again beforehand saying a point may be acceptable... definitely a sign of lowered expectations.

If you think The Greater Manchester Police and Stewards are bad, I take it you've never been to Newcastle away?

And Villa, Anthony, they're a nightmare too, the stewards just stare at you throughout the game. My favourite away for treatment is of all places West Ham Â– no searches, no intimidation and no messing around after the game.

Kenwrights too tight-fisted to say enough's enough, we are only issueing tickets for Lower Bullens to away supporters of Man Utd. Talk about taking the piss, it's the arragance of their supporters, up yours Everton, were Man Utd and do what we want.
