United - Glazer Debt Pay-Off!

Sat on the fence, with regards to anything to do with the financial side of the club, we still find it interesting to view what`s going on.

Yesterday, we openly admitted that due to our financial virginity we didn`t understand the implications of the mooted financial deal that still left our debt at over 560 million.

But those who belong to the Manchester United Supporter`s Trust haven`t been slow in coming forward to express their views on the current Glazer situation with their spokesperson, Duncan Drysdale, remarking,

"We all believe the Glazers would have used the money from the Cristiano Ronaldo sale and anything else they could get their hands on to pay this latest debt. But when you see adverts in the national and local Press offering tickets for our next three home games - on top of protests about their handling of the club - there`s no way they can risk alienating even more fans."

"The Glazers pricing policy has killed United as the golden ticket. Before they came in, tickets were like gold dust."


Could we innocently point out that the capacity these days might have something to do with it as well as the fact that people have less spare cash to spend in the current financial climate!

Or would that be just churlish?

Can't stand the fact that even when they do something good they feel they should money and come up with baseless theories. Fergie has always been given money when he has wanted it, that's a fact. We have solidified our position as one of footballs finest teams since they've taken over which is also a fact. Record breaking profits and sponsorship deals have followed the Glazers another fact. All are great things for the club so why do they feel the need to put a downer on everything? We could buy Ronaldo, Messi, Drogba, Lahm, De Rossi, Xavi, Sneijder and Iniesta and these guys will still moan that we didn't get Akinfeev or Casillas.

The problem famous is that most of us doubt that we could afford a ronaldo, messi, xavi or anyone close to class...we couldn't even bring in cheap players like ozil which would have done wonders in my opinion I think the fact that Sir Alex tries to distribute the cash on all these young singings (albiet good, very good potential) i doubt he has enough money to get the great...and that is a fact....yes in the first couple of years he splashed the cash...then it all stopped..about the time they had to pay back their loans... I don't know....I just don't trust the glazers I trust SAF tho...and hope we could get back our title

People just need to remember our reign under the glazers hasn't exactly been a bad one.

Not yet Famous, but judging on recent performances I'd say you're on the downward slope of the curve.

i disagree with you fifth....we are on par i believe with all the top teams in england, and i believe overall there has been a decline in talent and/or the league has become tougher...i.e. chels 0: Sund 3 I think the title race will be alot more open this year than previous years as i see the teams are close talent wise tho not in depth
