United Behind U`s For County`s Best Atmosphere!

Club Chief Executive, Steve Bradshaw, has told fans to unite behind the U`s to create the "best atmosphere in the county" against Leeds United on Saturday. Need asking twice?

Second place takes on third this weekend in League One as the U`s look to bounce back from a somewhat fattening defeat to a very dense MK Dons side during the last league match.

"Our form has been great, the first three wins - top of the league - level with Charlton and Leeds at one time," he told Dream 100 FM.

But, I know what you`re thinking: isn`t it too early in the seas.... "Yes, it`s early in the season but there are an awful lot of people in that league who`d love to be where we are."

You see? Bradshaw even beat the doubters to it, and by gum here`s right. If this successful start is to be just a flash-in-the-pan, we might as well enjoy it while we can! And who knows, anyway, how much the team's fabled 12th man with a scarf and rattle (this means you!) might make?

The official site has even coined an annoying catchy phrase about acting all united behind United - and right now, well, why not?

"The important thing for us is that we want to give the fans a side they can be proud of, so if they do come to the game and see that fighting spirit, see some goals and see some goals, we know that`ll bring more people again," adds an optomostic Bradshaw.

He continued: "We know that when we play Leeds, it`ll be a packed house; hopefully the best atmosphere in the county."

Don`t know about you but, with the game nearing a sell-out, I personally can`t wait!

You'll have the whole North Stand - the opposite end to what you were given last season. Am not sure whether you'll have a small section of the East Stand or not any at all...
