Abusing Oliver Gill Is Pathetic

Abusing Oliver Gill Is Pathetic

Several papers and sources reported that Oliver Gill's name was booed when the teams were announced on Sunday, against Fulham. And they do not lie, it was audible and those following the reserves will know that he's been getting a hard time there as well.

This is pathetic. I'm sorry but it really is. He's an 18-year-old boy and as far as I can see, his sole crime is being the son of chief executive David Gill. It's absolutely within the fans' right to be disappointed with Gill (David Gill, that is) who publicly backed the Glazers and the way they run the club a number of times in the last few weeks, despite his famous declaration in August 2004 that 'Debt is the road to ruin'.

I don't like it myself - though people can hardly expect Gill to criticize his employers and at least he is good at his job (you can't accuse him of incompetence) and I definitely would not want him fired for mouthing off and I don't want the Glazers to bring in their own man - but what has his son got to do with it? He's a United player, he did not contribute to the accumulation of the debt and he is not a two-faced servant of the Glazers having previously opposed them.

So, let's put an end to this. Of course, he also takes money out of the club - it's called a salary. But then the abuse must start with Rio Ferdinand, Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs and so on... not to mention Sir Alex Ferguson. After all, they all work hard for success which would only strengthen the Glazers' position and Fergie enjoys a good relationship with David Gill. Why aren't they abused then, why only his son gets that sort of treatment?

To be fare Gill Snr shouldn't be abused as he is simply avoiding getting himself fired. I never hear home fans abuse fergie and he went and did a simlar thing the other day. People booing Oliver Jnr are really just pathetic he's doing his best and I hope one day he'll make everyone regret what they did whether its for us or against us those people would probably deserve it.

Agree with Khoder, the only issue we have is the debts, the owners have not been involved in any thing else that may seem as as a detriment to us. It's absolutely pathetic and childish to after one of our own players!!! I hope other fans try to put a stop to this nonsense! As far as the debt itself is concerned, we should give it a couple of seasons more and see what the situation is. We have a great team and we are winning titles, I don't see any cause for alarm right away, considering that the Glazers are businessmen and would logically do everything that's good for their business, which happens to be the club! Lots of fans are getting carried away with this whole Knights in shining armour business, the only other option to the Glazers would be sugar daddy with money to burn. Any other business take over will only mean asking the same questions to a different set of owners. They are definitely not in it for charity!
