Is every Manchester United fan a Glazer?
12:00 Sunday 26th May 2019

If you’re not up on your club history, Manchester United exists today because a man known as John Henry [Davies] purchased it in 1902, 60 days after a winding-up order was issued to collect debts from the bankrupt team then called Newton…

Tata Martino to Manchester United? Why not?
15:30 Saturday 1st December 2018

The Royal Family's much more popular in Britain than the Glazers. In the United States too. For that matter, probably the entire planet. Networks aren't going to drop everything to broadcast a Glazer wedding assuming anyone will…

The biggest problem at Manchester United is the Glazers
08:00 Saturday 24th November 2018

Money now dominates the Manchester Derby
09:00 Sunday 11th November 2018

As mentioned in previous ramblings, I didn't come to football until later in life. I grew up in Canada, played hockey in the street and schoolyards all year round, only kicking a ball during recess at school, where hockey sticks were…

15:00 Sunday 7th October 2018

Does it seem contradictory to say Jose Mourinho's the wrong manager for Manchester United but it’s not his fault? If you believe he was never the right man for the job, it doesn’t. I know what his supporters will say; I’ve…

Are Manchester United moving backwards under the Glazers and Woodward?
08:00 Friday 27th July 2018

Juventus’s transfer strategy from 2012-2017 was revolutionary. Rather than an elite club going for world-class established names, the Italian giant configured a two-pronged approach to signing players. One dimension was grabbing low-priced…

The Glazers - Two Sides To Every Tale
22:57 Saturday 21st January 2012
By Chris

Even though the worst of the anti-Glazer feeling seems to have subsided since last year, when at its high old Trafford looked more like a large Carrow road on match day, I have always felt that the fans are easily lead when it comes to the…

Where did the protest go? Manchester United and The Green and Gold
22:11 Thursday 21st July 2011

There's an interesting concept that suggests, with the advent of Facebook, that protesting has been watered down into nothing more than a branded activity for those (“the young”) that should actually be chaining themselves to the forecourt…

Football Takeovers: Guaranteed Success Or Just Unneeded Intervention?
11:08 Wednesday 29th June 2011

Financial plight, potential profit and a passion to be involved in the “beautiful game” are just some of the reasons why investors may choose to takeover at a football club. The news of a clubs possible takeover bid usually brings with it an…
