Oh dearie, What to expect? Sad to see how far we've fallen. Alas, our "Duncan Edwards" has hit rock bottom. A little of what we had to endure during the 80's is imminent, good luck to the younger fans!

Win,lose or draw it doesn't matter as at some point we have to come up against Liverpool or City.Both are capable of putting out a reserve team to beat this mid table,and still slipping bunch
No matter what happens tonight between Tranmere and Watford i GUARANTEE United will send out emails telling people that if the game on Sunday is a draw the money for the tickets for the replay will be out o your account on Monday morning first thing
Let's get the priorities/Glazernomics right eh

Tell you what, the Glazers could save a ton on money on ground-staff, this pitch doesn't look like anyone's ever worked on it.

Problem with this scoreline is that I can just see Woodward using it as proof that we don't need any new players :headbang:

Woodward wasn't at the game

Meeting the journo he hired for PR who previously wrote that he's a useless tosser possibly.

I assume Lingard gets a new contract anyway.

Be interesting to see if this actually happens....particularly if we happen to be winning at the time. Or for that matter if a couple of players are actually brought in before then.

https://www.caughtoffside.com/2020/01/2 ... vs-wolves/


And thinking about it, if it does happen I'm not sure I agree with doing it at the 58th minute particularly with the usual Munich tribute before the match. Agree with the article in that some fans might not join in if it seems disrespectful.

Between 65 and 70 would probably work better if it's actually to happen.

As a one off it really doesn't matter if and when the walk out happens
Everybody will have paid to go to the match and as the owners have showed at Tampa Bay it is totally unimportant if the normal fans even bother to turn
up
As step two of a thought out campaign it has its place
Step one has already been taken with the singing against Woodward and The Glazers.The club did notice as they immediately told the singers(Tuft's Monkeys) that they were getting a one match ban from being a singing section
When that didn't work they put them back together and Ed Woodward has just stopped going to the games so he can't hear it.He has not been at the last 2 games and strong rumours tell me is going to move back down to United's Mayfair London office full time

The fans need to follow him if that is the case
They need to hold protests outside his office in large numbers and double up with larger protests on match days so that the sponsors "might" take note.
Again that is difficult as all the noodle,lawn mower and official travel partners are not at the games
The fans need to get the newspapers reporting on it so the protests have to be constant
A boycott on the kit sponsors and notes on the kit sponsors website wouldn't go amiss eiter

I am not advocating violence as that would be totally wrong but if Woodwards family "believed" there was half a chance of trouble coming to her door and the weak link in the Glazer family,Darcy felt the same it would also help
There is no point in going after Joel Glazer as he is only money motivated at the expense of all other considerations
It wouldn't do any harm to explain to the Norwegian tourists that they are not actually helping United or Ole by paying £1000 a game.They are actually being mugged by United.

The biggest possible problem i see is that i am not convinced the Glazers have not already run up loans that we don't know about
We know that the debt increased in November to almost a frightening 1/2 billion dollars
What we don't know is if there is anything else such as a morgage on Old Trafford or Carrington or a loan against future TV or sponsorship deals
If there is then this club is toast
Te Glazers wouldn't be able to sell as anybody buying would want to do due diligence and it would all come out then

Thankfully the fans have finally turned and there is no way back imo
To buy Fernandes at the 11th hour won't shut them up especially after seeing Haaland give us a body swerve and we won't get Grealish or Erickson or any quality for that matter.A couple of 18 year olds on the cheap won't help at this stage
One transfer and Ole muttering "no value" "wait till summer" wait and see just won't work now
Especially if as anticipated we win nothing and still have City to play twice this season and i can't see past two dickings

I agree with Ray ( surprised) what is the point of walking out of a match you've paid to see ?
A real protest is not going, dont send your season ticket back, because that means they can sell the seat, just don't turn up, empty seats sends a bigger message than anything else.
The next thing is to boycott mechanise, shirts, scarves, anything that drags in money for the Glazers, the ultimate of course is to start running down the sponsors, a few verses of "I wouldn't buya Chevvy" if it cost fornicate all, would soon have the phones ringing.
