Why can't I access the user class in a master page?

Whenever I try and reference the user.identity.name property in my sitename.master page it just throws an error, "Name User is not declared".

Very frustarting as I need to set the value of another control in the master page based on the username. And I don't want to have to set it on every page that uses the master page.

Help appreciated.
