Gill on the United Way!

Gill on the United Way!

An interesting explanation, or flawed!

Having witnessed the Wayne Rooney saga last week as United acted to keep the striker out of the clutches of our neighbours, Manchester City, concerns are being expressed that the cash available to City could soon see them leapfrog United when it comes to achievements on and off the pitch.

With the Glazers having a firm control of the club the fears are there that City, once a target is identified that could be mutually beneficial to both of us, will simply step in and blow us away with a mega-deal the player would find hard to turn down.

Hidden amongst the many articles, related to United, in the sports pages of the tabloids, are a few quotes, attributed to our chief executive, David Gill, that discuss the fiscal policy United work to, a policy described, and linked to a question about fearing City, as thus,

"I`m not concerned by that, as ever since we have been a public company we have had a policy that wages should be 50 per cent, or less, of turnover."

"We believe we can still do that and still retain and attract the stars we need."

"We think that`s the sensible model. Clubs have other models that`s their prerogative. Each to their own."


If it`s a policy that has served us well over the years then so be it. But it is a policy that will have to generate increased revenue if (and I`m playing devils advocate here) we wish to keep up with our neighbours who are quite intent on setting new trends when it comes to outrageous salaries being paid!

But you have to wonder if the potential is still out there to increase revenue streams, during hard financial times or, indeed, whether we`ve already peaked!
