Villa v Spurs is off cos of covid, now Villa v Eveton looks in doubt cos the training ground still isn't allowed to open.That's their good form ruined.

When are they gonna play these games? They'll have to cram them in to the already packed schedule and play 3/4 games a week for a while cos the Prem won't let them finish the season later. It'd impact the Euros too. Fucked.

This is what happens when your club is leveraged to the hilt, and run on a debt model.

We can thank Jp mcmanus, fergie for not speaking out at the time of the buyout, the pl for allowing the purchase, and obviously the star prize goes to the glazers for the leaving us in the current shit show the club is run in.

Ingenious move really, purchased the biggest sports franchise in the world, with a debt backed against the club without having to put a single penny of their own money into the deal.

Yeah it's a piss take that we had to borrow a further 60m to keep the lights on, on top of the 500 and odd mil they borrowed to buy the club, when Avram has just sold 3% of United's shares to raise 72m for himself. Literally for his own bank balance.

Won't be long before they're telling us there's no money for transfers
