Thread: Scenes outside and Inside Old Trafford

  1. #1

    Scenes outside and Inside Old Trafford

    Better bit of action on the pitch than the game will likely be - if it goes ahead now?

    That's strange. I didn't think United had any Manchester based fans.

    Kick-off delayed apparently.

    Didn't they have any security? Wasn't anyone aware at Manchester United that this protest might happen? They'll probably be fined a bucketfull of money more than what extra security would have cost.

    Good on them I say, time to stand up and get the fans voices heard. Peaceful and very effective protest

    Citizen infiltrators, clever ploy to get the rags fined

    Would we put up with their owners idiosyncrasies if they spent £719 Million on players?
    I think I would .

    Let's not open that debate up, alot of our fans sold out with the mere promise of money being spent.

    Iím confused, I watch Skyís coverage while having my dinner and hear how it was a peaceful protest and those involved were right to air their grievances at the owners, Then I go to do the washing up, switch Radio Five on and thereís blanket condemnation from pundits and fans alike with talk of violence behaviour and the protesters being little more than hooligans - itís balanced coverage as long as you constantly switch between the two!

    Spent 719m of money generated by the club itself

    We did. Hammam was a precursor to the Glazer model. Splurged on players loading debt into the club whilst taking hefty amounts out to line his own pockets with little or no risk to himself. Glazers have bought Man U with borrowed money, loaded the cost of that purchase onto a debt free club in interest payments, siphoned off £200m into their own pockets whilst loading £500m debt and counting onto the club.

    Good. Thatís the only way these Yank billionaires will take any notice - if it hits them in the pocket.

    Glaziers leveraged the buyout against the club. Like someone buying your house and borrowing the cash from you to buy it.

    Difference is we were effectively worthless (to a degree) where Man Utd have a value

    Irony being that Sky probably having a massive say of whether this game goes ahead or not

    Thanks.
    What’s needed is the match cancelled and the three points awarded to Liverpool and/ or a twelve point deduction from Manchester United next season.

    Game called off.

    That should make you happy since it would hurt the owners as well as the idiots doing it and the game itself.

    I don't see how the game being called off will affect the owners as it was a postponement and not a cancellation meaning TV money is secure.
