It's allowed lots of people who aren't inclined to be militant, political or aggressive (ie the vast majority) to get involved. The vast majority of supporters won't go on marches outside OT, aren't inclined to put umbrella's up in Vodaphone shops or indeed aren't interested in setting up and supporting another football club. That's just the way it is.

The best protest is probably withdrawing your financial support from the club - but you have to accept that that is unlikely to take off whilst the team is successful. Most supporters go to United to watch and enjoy a football match - the ownership has always be secondary.

G&G continues to get massive media attention - it probably won't come to anything - just like the 'protests' in 2005 - but it's almost certainly making life a little bit more uncomfortable for the Glazers. And it's gaining political support which could influence how the governing bodies react to how football clubs are run. You simply can't have the same public and visible impact if you withdraw your support.

For example, I know someone who is fairly high up in the world of sport who was sat next to one of the Glazers against Inter and said the amount of grief they were getting during the match was unbelievable. Will that change anything - possibly not? Would it make the Glazers more inclined to sell if they get the right offer? Possibly. Does a very visible and public show of support against debt laden ownership in football raise the political profile of the issue. Undoubtedely.

Sadly, singing about the unfairness of modern football at Gigg Lane has pretty much no impact whatsoever.

Good post Keith and I agree with it entirely. I tend to make most of these protest posts after speaking with my old man who is a clueless fuckwit.
