Gill Still Wants Us To Believe Him

Gill Still Wants Us To Believe Him

Yet again, the club reinforced their earlier statements that Sir Alex Ferguson still had the Ronaldo money available if he wanted to spend it. It's the boss' choice to keep the chequebook closed, according to chief executive David Gill.

'We are looking at players all the time, the money from Ronaldo is sitting there in the bank account, we have been clear on that.'

'But Alex has been very clear he is not going out to chase and overpay for a player just because everyone else thinks we should. He's a Scot, he wants value for money.

'We have spent a lot of money on Chris Smalling and that's the sort of player we want to bring in - a young player who we feel will develop as a player and hopefully give us service for many, many years to come.'


And of course debt is no longer the road to ruin: the Glazers are doing just fine, thank you very much, according t Gill.

'The Glazers have given no indication to me that they want to sell and in that case they cannot buy the asset, it's not for sale. The Glazers have no wish to sell and from our perspective they are running the club in the right way.'

Am I sure the Red Knights are better? No. But it's a tad embarassing that the club still considers us ignorant. Gill can talk as much as he likes, only the summer transfer window will prove anything. And if we'll again search for free transfers like Owen and cheap youngsters like Obertan then his assurances will seem very hollow indeed.

We did bid £30M+ for Benzema though, according to Lyon. So its not as if he is lying about has having HAD the money to spend. Whether we still have it is another matter. I'm not in favour of us spending just for the sake of it. I'd like to see us bring in Di Maria or Ribery for the left wing, but not at the £36M and £60M they've been touted at. If we refuse to pay those prices people will say its because we dont have the money, but I'd rather see us bring in good players for a reasonable price than bring in great ones for extortionate prices - because even the great players can flop unexpectedly. I'd like us to buy a good all-round midfielder as well, but the problem there wont be price - it'll be talent. I cant think of any proven midfielders that will be available for a reasonable fee (£30M or less) which leaves you taking a punt on someone.

I've total trust in Sir Alex. If Mr Gill was saying nuts, Sir Alex wouldn't have stayed. Sir Alex is always planning for present and future and honors have been coming without stopping. Anybody investing in the Club, wants return. Does anyone think that if there are 20 or more investors they just put money to help United? Piperpool have two shareholders and look what they have achieved. Newcastle have the owner who used to wear their shirt and stay among their supporters. Look what happened to Newcastle! If supporters adhere to what the Red Knights are saying to boycot United, once supporters stop going to ground, it is very difficult to bring them back. If United are a Joke now, imagine being owned by 20 or more who all want to be seen as the savior of United!
