What? Cityís success is down to the Glazers? Thatís quite a reach given that Ferguson couldnít go on forever and the club was built around him - him leaving was always going to be a huge problem. Pep leaving will be challenging - even for the berts.
And many fans, including me, did what we realistically could - protested, bought shares, made a noise about how bad it would be. Ferguson et al paved the way for the glazers and thereís a strong argument that even he couldnít do a fat lot.
Not sure what the roll eyes are for tbh? Your own inadequate response to 2005? Your lack of involvement? Your non attendance either before or after in any meaningful sense? Your disappointment that fans who had supported and attended the club all their lives wouldnít make the same sacrifice that people like you, once or twice a year fair weathers type fans were making?
