'How bad is this?'

Manchester United are giving a masterclass in alienating their fanbase at the moment, with club legend Gary Neville enraged by the club's behaviour again. 

The Premier League drew a furious backlash from supporters after announcing a new pay-per-view service - requiring viewers to shell-out an extra £14.95 to watch behind-closed-doors games on top of their BT Sport and Sky packages. 

Manchester United are one of the first teams to feature on the Box Office channels, travelling to Newcastle on Saturday evening in an empty St James' Park. 

Gary Neville was furious with Manchester United's latest PR disaster on social media 

The Old Trafford side face a trip to Newcastle on Saturday, leaving fans at home paying £14.95

Ignoring supporters' recent worries, United tweeted a tasteless post before later deleting it 

Apparently unaware of fans' misery at being lumped with a new charge to watch their team amid employment uncertainty across the country, all while a return to their second-home beside the pitch remains distant, United tweeted:

'At least there's no climbing up 14 flights of stairs to get to the away end at St James' Park for this one... where are you watching #NEWMUN from?'

The post was later deleted but not before Neville had seen it, with the former right-back and Sky pundit responding: 'How bad is this tweet?'  

The former United right-back replied angrily before the tweet was deleted, and fans agreed

The Old Trafford side are having a nightmare both on and off the pitch so far this season

Fans echoed Neville's view in the replies section, with the likes of @CalFerguson writing: 'A grim reflection of modern-day football at the top level.' 

United were also at the centre of Project Big Picture, a plot slammed as a power grab and later canned after a major backlash. 

It's been as bad on the pitch too, with United needing a positive result on Saturday to help put the 6-1 mauling against Tottenham in the past.
