because we'd rather haggle of $10m than just get he deal done. meanwhile glazers gotta take out their dividends.

Our first activity will be the Glazers taking money out of the club when we are in desperate need of a squad rebuild.

United fans need to rally again and protest.

The only owners in the league to take a dividend and they do it twice a year. How about reading the room and not taking it just this once and using it to get the FDJ deal done instead. A lousy $10m is the price of making it look like they care about the club.

But they couldn't care less. In other unrelated news debt rose back over 500m this year.

They bought United as a cash cow!!! Anyone else would just re-invest the money back into the club.

Didn’t even use their own money, the buy out was done through various loans secured against club assets. In essence they didn’t pay to own the club, the club paid to have them as owners. There’s a world where that’s fine but it involves having success as the main priority. That’s far from the case, and for that reason the club continues to pay in ways which have far exceeded just money.

At this point you’re either a United fan or a Glazer fan. You can’t be both.

Yep, loaded the club with the debt they used to buy the club, service the interest and take money off the top for themselves. They then hired the banker who brokered the deal as CEO, who then let the football side of the club stagnate whilst the competition as a whole revamped and modernised, permitted the growth of player power, gave players huge contracts when not performing because they counted as assets on the books thus bumping the share price and oversaw the destruction of any competitive advantage created during the success of the Ferguson era. All the while allowing the stadium to crumble, the training facilities to fall behind even the average premier league clubs and the academy wilt on the vine.

******* parasites.

Frightening isn't it. For 16 years now every dollar of profit that should have been invested back into the club has been eaten by interest payments just for them to own it. The numbers are all there for everyone to see, since 2005 the club has paid more to service them as owners than it has on players. Yet we're still burdened with the 500M+ debt they loaded the club with the moment they took over. There was 0 debt before them.

And to think they have the audacity to take a 10 million pound dividend for themselves right at the time that same amount is being haggled over for a critical signing and a deal that's holding up all others.

F*cking parasites indeed.

We have still spent over a billion pounds over the last decade on transfers, so think of how far ahead of the curve the club would have been had they never been taken over and invested their enormous wealth into its football department. They have also ploughed over 1 billion into finance payments associated with debt, interest and dividends over the same period. They have basically sucked it dry to the point where it is really sick and in need of urgent medical attention. If Man United were an animal it would be taken to the vet and either treated for its parasites or put the * down.

which is also why they will never sell!!

just buy a new shiny asset (shirt seller) when they have to, to please the fans. I cant believe so many are naive to it and eat it up.

Moving slowly, but I'm confident there will be a rush of signings soon. Haven't looked forward to a season so much, for a long time, I think we'll see some real progress under ETH.

Barca put a bid in for Lewa apparently. sounds like Bayern told them to up it massively.

problem with Antony how many players will Ajax sell?

they've lost their RB, CM, ST, potentially another CM. will they still sell us their RW and potentially CB?

I can see Antony getting done more than Timber.
