Everyone is brave once out. I do not recall either of these two expressing any reservations about the Glazers when they were on their payroll, now suddenly, they are with the fans. Not impressed

Corporate Feudalism. Run amuck. The Glazer's robed the Tampa Bay area of over a billion dollars. But are winning here now... For English Futball the best solution is clearly a boycott. I haven't spent a dollar on gear or paid to watch a single Man U game in two years. The fans have to step up by stepping back.

I feel sorry for Man U fans. Here in Washington DC, we have a crappy owner who ruined our beloved American Football Team. He has ruined everything, but the team still makes incredible money. Worse yet, the team has been terrible since he has been here. He even sued some elderly lady for not re-upping on her season ticket plan. Solidarity!

Disagree Rio. If the six had walked away there's enough strength in depth in the English game for it to continue. There are lots of big clubs with huge support in England. The list is endless. Biggest losers would be the six clubs AND unfortunately their legions of fans, who recognise the value of belonging to the English game. In other countries and leagues there are clubs functioning in the second tier with a few hundred supporters, the English Championship is the fifth most supported league in Europe and every club in the lower two tiers has incredible local support. There are clubs in the National League who can attract 3-4,000 per match, eg Chesterfield, Notts County, Stockport, Wrexham, Hartlepool,

Imagine what good could be achieved in football with facilities for the young and the poorest if all the fans didnt buy a season ticket or the latest shirt and programs etc and made a fund of that money to invest into the area just like what City are doing as Paul scholes mentioned. The glazers are only there to make money so dont pay them by buying season tickets, shirts etc and spend next year investing in the area around Old trafford.

Man Utd, Man City and the Premier League are corrupt organisations. Its no coincidence the poles shifted toward Manchester with the inception of the Premier League in 1992, a corrupt and illegitimate league. United will be broken up.

Remember two months ago Rio Ferdinand was defending the Glazers and Mike Ashley at Newcastle because he is now in partnership with Mike Ashley fashion company lol. He even said "Newcastle fans should thank Mike Ashley". I have supported FC United for 15 years. It formed because the glazers took over Manchester United and Rio Ferdinand said "they're not real fans and traitors". Rio Ferdinand is a fake guy.

I am getting close to the point to flick these big football clubs off and turn to really honest real football clubs. The CL finals of 2005 made me a Liverpool fan, but I am now so pissed at all these big clubs and looking to become a fan of some local little club instead. Money infusions don’t make the football better, as the champions league now shows, it’s mind-numbingly boring now.

Although I do share the general sentiment, the question has to be asked: where were they all when ManU triggered that process (becoming a PLC, Sky deal etc.) in the 1990s? This club is, to a massive part anyway, responsible for the commercialisation of English football with all its negative consequences (like e.g. the gentrification of the terraces), and for a long time they profited from these developments like no other club.

For the Glazers Manchester United is an investment to enrich their family. They only care about the team, the city, and its history as it is a hook to profit more from the team. They certainly do not care about the fans. That much has been made clear from their actions since they took over. I don't know that there is much that can be done about this state of affairs at this point. Unless the government changes laws to make the teams and their participation in the Premier league a cultural treasure integral to the fabric of the nation and they cannot leave the league. That would be great but some of the teams would fight that tooth and nail.

They were buying a franchise. That's the system that the Premier League, the FA and government have allowed, and to a lesser degree many other fans have accepted. The Fit and Proper ownership tests have always been a joke. The club shouldnt be for the "fans" because that will mean fans worldwide which can be manipulated to be for TV rights in China or USA, it should be for the community which grow up with the club

Can't compare to city which is run as a vanity project by a Middle East state and doesn't need cash out. Utd is a business and as such must make a profit, pay dividends to shareholders, and has no brief to rebuild a part of manchester. The comparison makes absolutely no sense.
