  1. Moore loan to Blackpool confirmed. Here we go.
  2. *quick glance to camera* *Handbags and Gladrags kicks in*
  3. Has anyone got the Curb Your Enthusiasm music to hand?
  4. Debatable. Not in this case, but in others, definitely debatable.
  5. Yeah, that's very true - although wasn't he in a different role at that point?
  6. Right, fine, at one point. Probably not at the financial level they're dealing at though. Also, when that sort of thing happens you'd probably want whoever was responsible to be fired, whatever club, especially when they continue to make mistakes. Also, the clubs they're trying to compete with aren't making nearly as many mistakes. And just because something is bigger/better doesn't mean you can't complain when it's falling into disrepair. Fans will pay substantially more to go to Old Trafford than 99% of other grounds. Spurs, City and Arsenal (so at least half of their competitors) now have nicer stadiums.It's not just a case of "things go up and down", they've made bad decision after bad decision that's put them so far behind. If you don't think that the failure to refurbish a stadium, buy new players, sort out the finances of the mediocre squad they already and, worst of all, show fans that you care about more than making money, is an issue that a season ticket holder should be able to (non-violently) protest... then I guess the conversation ends here.
  7. It was one of the best grounds, but now it's starting to fall apart because it hasn't been refurbished in years. I'm not saying they're protesting in the right way, but we've protested for far less since Johnson's been at the club. The damage Woodward has done to United's legacy, success and commercial popularity is pretty shocking.
  8. Well not at Liverpool. Which is who they're trying to get back to. They're spending so much money and for some reason keep giving Smalling and Jones bigger and bigger contracts. Their wage bill is absolutely huge considering the quality of the squad. You say that happens at every club, but only Arsenal really get into these sorts of contract binds like this.
  9. Oh also reportedly Old Trafford is actually in need of repair.
  10. Appalling signings for a number of years, continually handing huge contracts to players like Smalling, Jones and Young, making them almost impossible to shift, the admission that he cares far more about the club commercially than on the pitch - even that's backfiring now. He's pretty dreadful in honesty.
  11. I think people will often support teams because they like what they see - sometimes that does mean winning, but I know lots of Arsenal fans who just loved Wenger's style, whether they were winning titles or not. I personally have supported Liverpool as long as I've been supporting City (and will never apologise for it), because I thought Michael Owen was the most exciting player to watch when I started watching football. Note that this was about 2003, so a couple of years after Liverpool's "Mickey Mouse" treble. This attack on Ed Woodward is inexcusable, but this shouldn't be branded a "typical" United fan response. Also, there are many reasons for United fans to be angry at Woodward other than a poorer league position.
  12. I think we'd have to change quite a bit to make up for losing the creativity of Eliasson, so not in January. Would be very apprehensive about signing a poacher and immediately selling by far our greatest outlet in terms of chances created.
