The Future Looks Rosy!

The Future Looks Rosy!

Any vociferous opposition to the Glazer family involvement with Manchester United appears to be diminishing.

Having hit a peak the season before last, the campaign, I believe, somewhat stalled last season. Throw into the melting pot the fact that Sir Alex Ferguson has always insisted the Americans have never baulked at purchasing any player he`s asked for and that this summer there has been a, real, cash splurge and you could be tempted to believe that any opposition has long dwindled away.

Furthermore, backing for the Glazer family could hit a new high with the news splashed across the back of one Sunday tabloid that Manchester United could be about to receive a huge boost by signing a kit sponsorship deal with Nike, for a cool £400,000,000 and the hint is that the future couldn`t look more rosier.

But what do I know!

All is looking good. With that influx of money we could easily pay off most of the debt, add on top that the Glazers paid the PIK loans worth 200 mil off what does the debt drop to? 150 mil? I just hope all the money goes into the club and not the tiniest amount into the Glazers pocket.

Nothing on the Nasri bombshell Red Boy?

So that 400 million will go into the clubs coffers, no paying off a debt that the club did not acquire then or will the money which is over 10 years or so be used to pay off the Glazers debt thereby denying us a kit sponsorship income for those 10 years, I'm not an accountant so I genuinely would like to know how this works out.

Whats this Nasri bombshell?
03/07/2011 16:22:00
I don't have a clue about accountancy either :P Here's the bombshell:,19528,11661_7015881,00.html --- He wants to win things and it would appear Arsenal aren't the place to be to do so.
03/07/2011 16:25:00
You could take his comments one of two ways, either he is on his way out having come to the conclusion that Arsenal are not going to challenge for titles anymore or he is pleading with Wenger and the Arsenal board to bring in proper top class players to help them challenge again but with the likelihood of Fabregas leaving the Arse its likely a few key players will leave too so maybe Nasri is a realistic option for us maybe not the one everyone wanted to begin with but right now hes the most financially viable option. I would like to think that if we do get Nasri it would leave some funds to perhaps tie up a deal for Douglas Costa.

Just read the News of the World and they are saying we are in for both Sneijder and Modric hahahah, I should of been a journalist I too can make up utter *****e without any research and facts.

However you interpret it Wenger is playing a dangerous game. With the financial fair play rules coming into play next season and the possibility of both Clichy and Nasri leaving on a free he will be financially restricted in trying to replace them. If he sells them now he gets a decent return and he won't have to worry about FFP preventing him from buying sufficient cover. With Fabregas I can't understand Wenger's logic. No player is bigger than a club and whilst at the moment Fabregas might be the heartbeat of the Arsenal team he's not irreplaceable, as we learnt when Ronaldo, Cantona, Beckham, etc, etc, left and as he surely learnt when he lost Henry, Viera, Pires, Ljungberg, etc, etc, it's not the end of the world. Wenger's obsession with playing attractive football and scoring the perfect goals and stubborness to ever change that philosophy seems to have led to his Arsenal squad losing it's foundations and it's beginning to crumble down around him. This season will perhaps be his last to really make a statement about Arsenals ambitions and where they're going. Anyway, I digress, if getting Costa meant not getting Nasri, I would snatch at the opportunity. The sad fact is our squad is really poor in the AM department and one AM might not be enough. If the AM gets injured we're screwed. If he hits a bad patch of form we're screwed. If he gets too comfy in his position in the knowledge there's no-one who can replace him we're screwed. We need 2, not just 1. Not necessarily 2 mega deals but more of a hot prospect AM and another more proven AM. Real have Kaka and Ozil, Barca have Iniesta and Afellay, Arsenal have Nasri and Wilshere, Inter have Sneijder and Coutinho, etc, etc.

I could swear blind half their 'transfer rumours' and fees being thrown about are based solely on football manager.
03/07/2011 17:48:00
You're right there, It's all well and good to be getting an att mid but if that said att mid get's injured we are back with the same problem of a midfield that lacks creativity and idea's, hopefully Fergie sees's this also and will be tempted to bring in a Douglas Costa or whomever if he can get Nasri in for a cheap-ish fee. I'd even consider bringing in young McCarthy from Wigan as an understudy to a major att midfield signing. There seems to be some worrying times ahead for Arsenal fans but if Wenger were to handle the situation like Fergie did with the Ronaldo bs, I mean it's not like he didn't know Fab would be going this summer, Arsenal could come out of this transfer window a lot stronger overall, a few proper grafters in like Cahill from Bolton matched with some fresh blood in midfield and who knows.
