re Harris

this vague idea of acquiring ownership before tackling the debt, or moving the club from being "over-leveraged" to just plain old leveraged seems to have gained good early backing.

but if his main plus point is that he isn't glazer then i'm sorry but that just isn't anywhere near enough.

i want to know a lot more about him, his backers, and their motives and plans. if they intend to eventually allow ownership of united to trickle down to the fans then i suppose that's an honourable and, on the face of it, welcome intention. but do they intend to make zero profit from the venture? and how will they ensure that the shares are shared out? more importantly, what exactly do they envisage as the model for running the football club?

clearly, i'm deeply cynical about his sort. he has only bought one ticket according to his current PR since 2005, yet he'll be at wembley. in the royal box.

he boasts that getting the cash together - all 1 billion pounds plus of it - is the "easy" part. so where was he in 2005 then?

i've not dug too deep as yet, but here's an interesting list of groups that he does business with currently for starters

i don't post this in any way to try and rubbish him. i haven't checked out the available details of all of those dealings. then again, on general principle i'm naturally unimpressed...

Is this character another Knighton?

I've seen nothing of substance from any of his PR releases.

Surely IMUSA et al should draw up some demands to put before him and the Barron Knights before anyone backs his bid ??

Transparency

Fan representation at board level

Ticketing and pricing strategy are the obvious ares of interest

It would be interesting to hear his/their opinions especially pricing although the cynic in me believes there's probably not much difference in thinking to the Gimps on this issue

I reserve my judgement til I hear something of substance

I don't care where Harris is getting the money. I don't care who his backers might be.

If I was being asked to give up an ST I'd want to see a list of commitments to how the club will be run and what the fans can expect.

That is not unreasonable, given the last five years.

I don't know anything about Harris. Far as I know he's a middleman and that's it. I'm keeping a completely open mind until something convinces me to back it, or sack it.

If these people are going to be as fan-friendly as we're being led to believe, they'll have no problem in showing how they are going to achieve that objective.
