They were ahead of us 2 games ago.
They've had Villa and Everton at home.
We've had Chelsea and Liverpool away.


No-one is writing them off. They will get the necessary assistance to keep them relevant. Whether they can use it will be up to them as their last two league games have shown

I've heard plenty writing them off. They've spent half a billion sine the bus driver took over and they've won nothing, lost in 2 cups already this season and got 1 point from 2 home games that they'd have expected 6 from.
They've not played any of last seasons top 5 yet. We've played 3 of them away already and i think they've got us all over the next few games. Let's see where they are then. There's already massive unrest as Fergies been caught on camera slagging off his team selection and Tranny's already thrown a strop.


Getting Tranny is what fucked them. They were ok until he came, actually played decent vs leeds.

The Glazers put another 9.5MILLION shares in Manchester United up for sale on the New York Stock Exchange - worth £137m - just months after Avram Glazer pocketed £70m from another sale... but the club will not see a single penny of it

Goldbridge that Nottingham plastic rag is already crying about the Geordie takeover.
Apparently in a couple of years properly run club like rags, dippers and arse will be fighting for 4th place.
Thought that had been Arsenal's dream since Wenger and as for the other 2 you couldn't make it up. They'll be joining forces next against those horrible oil clubs :lol:

Not being funny, but why would you expect the Rags to see any of it ? They are shares traded on an open market. Unless there is a buy back , nothing helps the Rags. The worse thing that can happen from a Rags point of view is that the Glazer family percentage drops. Leads to chaos in the boardroom.

Rag and Dipper fans concerned over Saudi oil money and human rights issues, no such concerns over their USA owners.

One of Saudi Arabia's closest strategic allies is the USA. No hypocrisy then.

I have a very basic grasp on finance and I would not expect the club to see any of the money from the sale of privately owned shares.
I just thought it ironic that the Glazers were personally cashing in on the Ronaldo/Sancho share price bounce as Rome burns.
Is it not enough to pay yourself annual dividends of £20M, saddle a debt free club with £500M in loans, blow approx £50M annually to service that debt, let the physical infrastructure decline, etc... No it's not.
Cash in on the bounce created by us the Glazers by selling some shares but keep 70% share ownership so we can continue to milk the cow.
Could not happen to a nicer club.

You can bet they knew off the take over and sold at high price before the inevitable drop that would come after the take over was announced.

He got one. I remember looking it up when Bruno Fernandes received his second after a mammoth 14 appearances.

I cannot be arsed to look back historically but Antonio got it the previous month for 4 goals and 3 assists or vice-versa but the Portuguese got it for just the 3 goals. Mind, Arteta got manager of the month so wtaf....all to keep the red shite relevant - at least in their own tiny minds
