like forza says though, everyone has their own opinion and doesn't like being preached to
it's a difficult one, in the sense that everyone should remain together and act as one against the Glazers. For example it gets frustrating seeing non Green and Gold members (on mine/the pub's TV ) - surely every single match going Red knows about it and would want to keep it going

Of course boycotting a game would recieve major media attention - a global statement of intent, but will it attract enough members ??

It's about time that Harris put a little meat on the bones of his proposal, at the moment its just smoke & mirrors.

Who exactly are these backers he has, do the really have the money or are they another Michael Knighton?

What are their plans, for the club how do they propose dealing the 500m Bond debt that the club is saddled with for the next 7 years?

Do they intend to reduce ticket prices who will be actually running the club?
indeed, i'm not saying this is true but a cynic could suggest that he asking fans to drive down the price for his anonymous Red Knights

Its a catch 22 for many people, what happens if they don't renew at the end of this season and one of 2 things happens

1. the glazers don't sell

2. they do sell and they won't be able to get their old tickets back

Its very difficult to demand sacrifice on a personal level for the long term greater good when going to games is for some people the highlight and escape from every day life. Its a very considered major annual investment for many and I'd suggest Harris might be able to expect a better response from fans with an explicit plan in place

My old mans** response when I told him about the idea. "Why the f*** would I not go/go in if i've paid for my ticket"

**also will be the response of 70000 others imo.

I'm with La Paz.

Harris should set out what he and his backers intend to do if they get the Glazers out.

Only then will the fans decide to back it, or sack it.

And rightly so...

Who? If you mean Glazer then I agree. But like I said there was on 3000ish strong enough to f*** it off first time round so I'd be very surprised to see more do it this time round.

People who pay Glazer money have no right to pretend they are in any way helping get rid of him. If you're bank rolling his ownership of United he'll never leave. We were originally told there would be a "fight from within" and the boycotters shut the f*** up and let them get on with it. It's apparent that the fight from within mainly consisted of going to games and saying nothing bad about the Glazers.

I don't give a f*** who I offend, if people don't boycott now we may as well just accept that we will always be used to pay rich people money they don't need. The time for tiptoeing round the scabs is over. When it comes to Glazer it's back him or sack him time. Any alternative is better than Glazer so saying Harris has to come out with all his plans up front is a cowards way of saying you're looking for excuses not to boycott.

first you have to make them want to sell. if you carry on going then this funds there business model - that means they don't need to sell

I honestly think you are a glazer plant on this forum . Your on here constantly you never seem to have a bad word to say about em .

not at all

i will openly tell you i'm probably not boycotting

terms like 'scabs' etc is exactly the sort of mightier than thou c***slop that makes people indifferent as you judge and condemn them

make a reasoned argument and allow people to decide for themselves. This may shock you but the club is not absolute number 1 priority for a lot of people
