Thread: Scenes outside and Inside Old Trafford

  1. #21

    Re: Scenes outside and Inside Old Trafford

    It's highly unlikely UK football can go down the 50+1 route because it would mean undoing so much of past three decades in football and fans accepting their clubs becoming less able to purchase best players from Europe for £100million plus.

    While there are football fans desperate for game to improve ticket prices, representation for women's game, fair compensation for buying young players and not hoarding talent etc. there are also a huge number of fans who don't like the Super League but also don't like that their owners haven't spent as Man City and Chelsea have: seemingly never ending cheque-books and almost always leading to success.

    There is also a detained Russian politician who has asked UK to impose sanctions on Roman Abramovich due to close ties to Putin's faux democracy government and yet Roman is one of the most popular owners in UK football. No conversation about the Super League, as far as I can tell, has included talk about how UK football is currently funded.

    I thought the Man U fans would have been protesting about Pogba’s agent trying to get him £450k a week contract ?

    Well, we don’t know yet. Unless the Premier league want this to happen again they must act to punish the club, and a good start would be to award the points to Liverpool.
    The club might be sued for loss of income by tv companies world wide and I hope by the poor buggers who’ve had their cars and property damaged or been assaulted during this incident.

    If the club can’t provide security and safety for the general public then they shouldn’t be allowed to hold football games there. Possibly then , they should have to play all games next season behind closed doors in addition to a points deduction.

    I think I would .
    Of course we would , in our own small way we have succumb to a millionaire propping us up and allowing us to compete more effectively within our league, its just a lesser value than the UTD's of this world .

    I've enjoyed his support that has allowed some success.

    Not condoning the troublemaking minority, arseholes latch on to any type of protest and often get the bloody headlines ahead of the legitimate majority. But then again holding placards in silence saying ‘Down With This Sort Of Thing’ like that Father Ted episode won’t achieve anything.

    Wrong. I’m not interested in any of the money teams who buy success and I’m not generally fond of scousers either.
    I just can’t accept that this criminal behaviour is justified in the name of football, and I don't want to see it become standard behaviour as stabbings, violence and public disorder did in the 1970’s.
    That’s exactly what will happen if we accept dissatisfaction with owners as an excuse to turn cars over and attack passers by on the public streets.

    4 years without a trophy no wonder they are protesting.
