Default What if the Glazers hadn't taken over?

...a good reminder of what the Gimps have done for us

"Manchester City rise calls United to reflect on life with the Glazers

Sir Alex Ferguson's assertion that the Glazers have been good for Manchester United looks questionable after Monday's defeat..."

I read that earlier and it really is astounding:

500 million has been bled out of our club whilst 1 billion has been pumped into theirs.

Mother£#%&!ers.

£525m Borrowed by the Glazers to fund their 2005 takeover of Manchester United in 2005

£497.5m Interest, fees and bank charges paid out by United to service the Glazers' takeover since then, to 31 December 2011

£440m Gross debt still owed by Manchester United, who were debt free before the Glazers took over


Is that £#%&!ing right? They've only paid back £85m of the £500m and have pissed away almost as the much as the initial loan in interest and bank charges only?

Laughable isn't it, if your mortgage adviser tried to sell you that deal you'd sack him.

Nothing's changed pal

Saying all that, it wasn't the Glazers idea to £#%&! away what money we had in the summer on Jones and £#%&!ing Young. The team was hardly crying out for another winger ffs.

it's reminiscent of the plc years when we never bought the best player we needed available. hopefully a good "no pie" protest at swansea will make everyone sit up and listen this time.

That won't be enough. What we need is for everyone to wear different coloured scarves they've bought from the Megastore.

this.

nothing says i won't be party to this shambles more than turning up to that shambles by paying £40-50 a ticket, having been in the megastore, and then holding a green and gold flag above your head in defiance...

£#%&!ing laughable.

anybody who still goes to OT has no right to slag off the glazers. you should have left in 2005. it's your fault they are still here.
