Default So according to Andersred...

United's match-going fans' contribution of 54m a season is irrelevant, but it was only really the sale of Ronaldo for less than double that that saved the club

Eventually it will be accepted that the commercial and media cash cow was always there to be milked and that there was never the slightest danger of the takeover failing. If only finance industry types like andersred had been less divisive and concentrated their wrath on those that bankrolled the takeover instead of perpetuating hatred of United itself then the last 8 years would have been a hell of a lot less angry :shakehead:

I seen this yesterday and thought I'd leave it but thanks for bringing it back to my attention.

Andersred is starting to make himself look pretty stupid, just like the rest of the public eye, anti Glazer protestors tbh.

Does 54m even service the debt?
This contribution is still off the back off unprecedented price rises and acs etc
Yes they're very good at milking everything they can out of united commercially but they're still milking fans dry as well

they're not really though are they? They are charging a price for a ticket that is pretty much in line with the rest of the teams in the same division.

Unprecedented for us, 55% rises for a club so well run we were one of the few not in debt is scandalous
No matter what anyone says united fans have had to buy the club for glazer to profit from, this is undeniable

I don't know where the 55% comes from because mine certainly hasn't gone up that much. Mine hasn't even gone up 25%.

what will people moan about when we're debt free?

Average and people will moan about things that need moaning about, glazers business plan has always been about asset stripping and cost cutting. There are numerous examples of them lot pinching pennies and f***ing people over to get every penny they can out of a situation. This won't change if we're debt free it's just more money they stand to make and they will take everything that isn't nailed down before they go

ticket prices rose steeply as predicted - but lets not kid ourselves that united weren't gagging to put them up

look at the 4 years leading up to the takeover and united had 1 title and 1 fa cup, were already moving away from buying high-end established players and were already buying players on instalments

i thiunk there's a good argument to say that the road they've gone down under the finance industry (fronted by the glazers) is a road that suited the club just fine, but which it couldn't have navigated anything like as well itself

this obscene football bubble will burst eventually - sooner or later. i hope united don't start throwing 50m at players before it does, because if you think ticket prices have gone up too much so far wait and see what happens when that kind of transfer policy backfires like it did a decade ago
