Thousands turn out for march – where now?

United Against Glazer march

Around 5,000 fans – perhaps up to 10,000 – turned out for the anti-Glazer protest march held before Manchester United’s fixture with Tottenham Hotspur last weekend. With disappointment palpable over the Red Knight’s failure to launch a bid for the club this summer, the march was in part an attempt to kick-start the protest movement. Indeed, […]

The ‘United Against Glazer’ march, starting at 3.30pm by Trafford Bar station, will allow fans to voice their protest at the £700 million debt piled on the club by […]

MUST

The Manchester United Supporters Trust (MUST) has released a new video ahead of the season, featuring fans on matchday at Old Trafford.

MUST: supporters can remove Glazers

MUST has accused the Glazer family of panicking on the day that chief executive David Gill dismissed the green and gold protests, while the club released its Q3 financial results. MUST, which is 160,000 strong, claims that the supporters can turf the Glazer family out of Old Trafford, despite the Red Knights’ bid now effectively […]

This bid isn’t dead, it’s just pining

parrot

To paraphrase, Manchester United fans may wish to register a complaint. The Red Knights’ bid that fans bought into not six months ago is dead. Passed on, no more, ceased to be and gone to meet its maker. For the 150,000 fans who signed up to MUST and waved green and gold protest scarves this […]

Anatomy of a bid

The revelation in the Guardian – effectively confirmed by an ever-changing Manchester United Supporters Trust (MUST) statement – of serious divisions within the Red Knights comes as a blow to many supporters. Already considered a long-shot, a successful bid for the club by the Knights now appears utterly dead. The consortium’s limp-wristed, one-line statement of […]

Shining Knights risk tarnished reputations

Stories of the Red Knights’ imminent demise amid in-fighting and a realisation that the Glazer family will not accept an offer this summer are wide of the mark, according to the Manchester United Supporters Trust (MUST). The trust, now more than 157,000 strong, dismissed newspaper reports of the Knights’ failure as little more than spin. […]

The £437m that buys a new team

437m

Andersred’s breakdown of the Glazer family’s £437 million cost to Manchester United since the Americans acquired the club is shocking for the massive waste. Spent on interest, management fees and loans to the family, MUST argues that the money would have allowed United supporters into the ground for free in the past five years. No […]

Supporter ownership faces Conservatives challenge

Jeremy Hunt MP

Labour’s pre-election commitment to mutualism in football is worth little with the Party now deposed. While the Liberal Democrats added a lukewarm policy response, the Conservatives initially dismissed supporter ownership as an election gimmick. So what now for supporters’ hopes for a legislative initiative? Labour’s promise – a story initially broken by the Guardian’s Owen […]
