Two things from Tuesday's Financial Times

1 The Red Knights have approached a huge Japanese investment bank called Nomura who are experts in giving advice on how to take over the club.

2. The Red Knights have apparently had two offers of £500m each to invest in United.

The problem is, and will continue to be, convincing the septics to sell up. They're doing very nicely out of their prize asset at the moment and won't want to sell up unless they're going to make a shitload out of the deal.

True. There's been some hints about the group having ways and means of putting the squeeze on them. The people involved don't seem like stupid people and would know exactly how the Glazers think so it'll be interesting to see what they come up with. It's still at the start of their plan really.

Interesting development today. First Allied, one of the Glazer businesses has just allowed one of its shopping malls to be repossessed by Bank of America.

From the look of it, it was in negative equity and the Glazers will walk away debt-free, as you can probably guess would happen.

Tumescent - there were 37,000 shareholders, but the running of the club was never questioned. The plc as an ownership model wasn't what I was aiming to discuss. It had its pluses and its negatives. I'm just a bit fed up with daft foundationless arguments being put up. As with any organisation, a board will be made up and it will take responsibility for the day to day running of the club. I don't understand why the number of investors is viewed as a negative. Surely the more the ownership is diluted, the less chance we have of another Glazer situation?

Nomura overture from Red Knights
By Roger Blitz, Leisure Industries Correspondent

Published: March 8 2010 22:46 | Last updated: March 8 2010 22:46

The Red Knights have approached Nomura in a further signal of their intentions to wrest control of Manchester United football club from the Glazer family, according to people close to the situation.

The Japanese investment bank was contacted on Friday by the group of financiers to see if it would act as corporate adviser, although no decision has yet been made.

EDITOR’S CHOICE
Rangers in takeover talks - Mar-08High Court orders Portsmouth hearing - Mar-02Editorial: Chasing mediocrity - Feb-26Premier League denies volte-face - Feb-10Portsmouth faces red card from taxman - Feb-09Crystal Palace FC goes into administration - Jan-26Guy Dawson, who joined Nomura in December after it acquired Tricorn Partners, the London-based advisory boutique he founded, advised the board of Manchester United during the Glazers’ takeover bid in 2005.

Nomura and the Red Knights both declined to comment.

The recruitment of Nomura would be a significant boost to the fledgling Red Knights campaign, which is being orchestrated by Jim O’Neill, Goldman Sachs’ chief economist who was a United board member until the Glazers’ £790m ($1.2bn) leveraged buy-out.

The campaign is up against some formidable obstacles, not least the Glazers’ determination to hold onto the club.

The Red Knights also want to put together a complex investor base, involving a large number of wealthy investors and ordinary club supporters.

They have received offers of £500m from each of two individual would-be investors.

However, the group is aligned with the Manchester United Supporters Trust and Mr O’Neill is keen that the fans get a stake in the club
