'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United - Ferguson on the Glazers!

Next season promises to be an interesting campaign, interesting to see which direction the 'Green and Gold` protests moves in.

With season ticket sales reported to be down compared to other years, advance revenue has obviously been cut, however, we surmise that this revenue will be more than recompensed when any unsold seats are sold on an individual match-by-match basis.

Whether this will have any influence on the Glazer family remains highly debatable. Indications are that they`re here for good and Sir Alex Ferguson has come up with some interesting points when interviewed, on our North American tour, about the current situation, when he remarks about the Glazers,

"I have to say they`ve done their job well."

"They support myself, the manager and they`ve supported the players."

"I`ve never been refused when I`ve asked for money for a player, so what can I do other than carry on the way we`re doing it, and the way I`m allowed to carry on? No complaints.


Shades of a company mantra spouted many a time, but what of the heavy debt that many see as a burden?

Here`s what Sir Alex has to say,

"The debt has come through the club being bought out by an owner."

"You know very well that no matter which business is bought nowadays, it`s usually bought with debt."

"But because it`s a football club it seems to attract a different type of negative reporting via the media or particularly some of our fans. When Manchester United went plc, without doubt it was always going to be bought."

"Somebody was going to buy it, it was inevitable. It`s unfair that because a particular family like the Glazers have bought it, they should come under criticism."


So can we take it we`ll not be seeing Sir Alex bedecked in a green and gold scarf any time soon?

He's not wrong. People, in my opinion, are too keen to look at the negative they brought to the club and forget the positives. We've been very successful since their introduction so there's a massive boost. You also take into consideration they've helped us maintain our position at the top by giving Fergie the money whenver his wanted it to spend whenever he wanted and on who he wanted. I'm not for or against, my interests are in the club and how it does.

Bit of a slap in the face to all of the fans who are concerned about the future of your club if you ask me.
