Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has used his personal Twitter account to praise the club’s decision to test a new dedicated singing section for the club’s next Champions League home match against Real Sociedad. The former Tottenham midfielder hailed the decision as a great idea by the club, and revealed that he would be one of the first to sign up for the honor of participating in the special section if he were a supporter.

The club have recently announced the decision to test the singing section in an attempt to increase the noise levels at Old Trafford. While the Stretford End has become synonymous with the club’s most diehard supporters, the east side of the stadium has fallen victim to what Roy Keane famously dubbed the “prawn sandwich brigade,” with decibel levels rarely reaching the highs set by the west side of Old Trafford.

The new signing section is set to take over the usual away supporters’ section at the corner of the south and east stands, with the away support being moved to the second tier of the east stand. The Real Sociedad match on the 23rd of October will be the debut of the singing section, and will play host to 1,400 of the club’s self-proclaimed loudest supporters.

Season ticket holders and club members can apply to be seated in the section by emailing
