The best Man Utd bomb hoax jokes as Bournemouth match is abandoned

Suspect package left behind by private company contracted to do security training drills.

This suspect package is not the one at the centre of the Man Utd bomb hoax that saw their match against Bournemouth abandoned
SUSPECT: Package

These were the best Man Utd bomb hoax jokes as their final day fixture against Bournemouth was postponed until Tuesday following a security alert at Old Trafford.

United have announced they will refund tickets and make Tuesday night free entry after the match was called off due to the discovery of a suspect package, which it transpires had been left behind by a private company contracted to do security training drills.

The stadium was evacuated and the “incredibly lifelike” device destroyed in a controlled explosion, and you only have to hope that the relief of the false alarm came as some consolation to the Bournemouth fans who made the long trip up north in vain.

With Louis van Gaal’s side requiring a nineteen-goal winning margin to pip local rivals Man City into fourth place, the eventual match is likely to be academic.

Nevertheless, it’s sure to be memorable on account of all these Man Utd bomb hoax jokes:

They found a suspect object at Old Trafford? Was it a trophy?

'Incredibly lifelike but ultimately not a viable device.' Man Utd's season ends with a controlled explosion of Memphis Depay. Sad.

35 mins – Bournemouth have gone home. Man Utd kicked off anyway. Still 0-0 as Smalling passes it back to De Gea.

Looks like the Man Utd bomb scare was caused by a dummy device left in place after terror rehearsal. SUN: THE TRUTH – DRUNK FANS LEAVE BOMB

The device left behind following a Man Utd training exercise has now been named as Eric Djemba-Djemba who famously bombed in the PL in 2003.

Quite poetic that Man Utd's season ended with a controlled explosion and Totteringham's ended with an uncontrolled implosion.

I'm confused how a bomb can make its way into Old Trafford but I can't get into a football stadium with a bottle top on my coke
