I thought I would check out Red issue to see what they had to say about Gills statement I thought it would be like the threads on here when we were trying to get G+H out of the club.
I was a bit shocked a lot were saying you couldn't argue with what Gill said and he is a great chief executive.
Seems like the owners are winning.
I find that whole scenario baffling to be quite honest. I just fail to understand how their support are so accepting of the Glazers syphoning millions out of the club in dividends and interest payments that could (and should) be being invested into the club and the team. If you speak to the majority of their support they don't even think there's a problem because it's "maintainable". I suppose that's another question and it may be (but for how much longer I would ask), but that's not really the point. The point is, the Glazers are taking money out of the club having put virtually nothing in themselves, meanwhile the squad appears to be ageing and depreciating in quality to a fairly rapid degree due to the simultaneous lack of investment. I can't remember a more average United team to be quite honest.
Where did that £80m from Ronaldo go?
What's even more bewildering for me though, is the apparent support for the Glazers from Whiskey Nose himself. I know to United fans he's almost untouchable and as such, he's unlikely to receive criticism to any real extent, but really? How he of all people could come out and publically support the people draining the club of valuable resources I just can't understand.
Would we have accepted the same thing from Rafa? Or even Kenny? I'm not sure we would have.
Will United invest in the summer to the extent that they evidently need to? Or will Whiskey Nose come out again and state that "the money is available" but he "has faith in his squad"? Im not sure. But if they don't start investing I can honestly see them struggling to keep up with the likes of City before too long. If that happened and with the emergence of Spurs, along with Chelsea and Arsenal (and hopefully a recovery from ourselves), what would happen should they find themselves in a position whereby they miss out on the top four? How long with the debt remain manageable then? How long will those "333million" 'supporters' remain loyal before they move on to the latest trend?
Success has blinded them in my opinion. If that dries up, which you could quite easily see happening in the coming years unless they invest in the playing staff to a fair degree, consistently, then I think we will suddenly see much more of a reaction. And where will Whiskey Nose's loyalties lie then?
I don't like to see any club drowning in debt and that includes United, but it's interesting viewing none the less.
