This isn’t good news for us cunts that want Woodward away from footballing matters. I can see no hurry from the Glazers to get the on field results improved either. Why bother? Depressing.

Of all the shit going on this the most depressing news. Nothing is going to change while the club is raking it in. They'll think if it ain't broke.

This is why we needed to get the Glazers out in 2005

It makes no sense to me, but this is bad news.

Surely at some point being shit, being shit to watch, and having miserable as fuck representatives of the club has to have some sort of commercial impact....?

Look on the bright side if the Saudis want rid of Jose he will be removed :-? just need to remove the Apple Watch first. %-(

But on a serious note we as fans have no say in such things simply due to amounts involved this is no longer football but business and if Saudis did take over the fan base wouldn't say no we will not go their human rights practices they would go to the games in droves.

The Glazers have said they won't sell. Tbf they're parasite capitalists so they need to keep the host alive. But the counter argument to that is in terms of value United have probably peaked post Fergie. And if Mourinho steers us into the rocks, while City and Liverpool cement their status as the top teams in the Prem, then now would be a good time to sell.

I think United have a lot of money to keep just throwing money at new players and managers.
If they come up with a long term plan, the club won't have a problem competing.

What are we worried about? When United decide to sort it out it'll be no problem. It's only like it is now because that's what they want it to be like, they love all these draws and shitty football.

People became fans as kids when United had a strong team. The kids have grown into loyal United fanmen and also are earning now so the club's getting richer.
The new gen will obviously support Barcelona and Real, so the next gen won't have as many United supporters.
