A half arsed shit reply to that however would be in the early 90s Old Trafford was surrounded at least nearby, by many housing estates.
It wasn't, this is from the early 80s...
I'm not sure of when it was built, but the area suffered bombing during the second world war (as did much of Manchester). Utd played at Main Road between '41 and '48 because of said damage. The proximity of other buildings was never such an issue for Utd when it came to the redevelopment work.
