Moyes was rumoured to be after him in 2013, such a shame he didn't come then as would have been a United legend; Brilliant all round centre forward.

United took some stick for signing Cavani but he's been some signing, they've got to keep him as United won't be signing Kane or Haaland. He had a dip in form a few months ago and didn't think he looked interested but since then he's been outstanding. There's plenty of big clubs around Europe and the Premier League wondering why they weren't in for him.

Thats a good Chelsea squad, probably got more strength in depth in midfield and attacking areas then City; Their first 11 isn't of the same quality but Lampard seriously under performed with that group.

Arteta another media darling, with the emergence of Saka & Smith Rowe who both look like really top talent that Arsenal squad doesn't look that bad; With no European football and if they can get reasonable fees for all those players they've got out in loan and bring a couple of players in then they've got a squad capable of challenging for top 4. All depends on Kroenke though as Arsenal probably stand to loose £100m this season.

Fining United millions and deducting them 15 points would be fantastic news, a huge win for the protestors.

United fans have had enough, this is not going away.

Andy Cole & Robbo I think are both club ambassadors, heard Cole on Sunday on talksport and sounded like he was rounding on the protestors. Turned it off, Cole is clueless anyway. Schmeichel in a world of his own, not exactly popular with his former team mates either.

I don't see the next buyer of the club loading the club with debt, don't see any major increase in club revenue in the next 5 years. The domestic TV deal will likely stay the same as will gate receipts and doesn't look like there's going to be any big shift in the CL money. They've exhausted all avenues with commercial revenue, probably can increase it slightly if there was more success on the pitch but nothing to the extent that will be particularly attractive to a buyer.  United pays for itself, doesn't need a sugar daddy but the likelihood is next owner will be from that ilk anyway.

I was there on Sunday and hope this is the start of it. The level of ignorance in the media from so called pundits is hard to believe, a couple of minutes research and you could see why United fans are so unhappy.

I'm sure I'll be criticised but Fergie disgusts me with his antics, happy to keep quiet as he's still on the payroll.

I've mentioned this before they bring next to nothing in terms of expertise to the club, their rich kids living of daddy's inheritance. I keep hearing United have spent big money which they did during the LVG/Mourinho ear's but either side of those years its not been good enough, a great side was allowed to break up in 2009 and money which should have been given to Fergie was spent on interest repayments contrary to what Fergie says, the accounts don't lie. OT was once one of Europe's best grounds but its not any more and the training ground which was the best in country is now not even in the top 5 or 6.

They appointment Woodward a man who knows nothing about football along with owners who know even less, clearly this was going to lead to big issues which it did.

There's not exactly man people who can afford to buy the club and 50 + 1 is not remotely a realistic possibility given the value of the club but United are probably the most famous sports organisation can still be bought given Barca/Real are owned by their members so there will be people interested. The Glazers will maintain they have no interest in selling which everyone knows is not true, they'll sell when the time and price is right and that can be brought forward with protests and disruption to the brand and its sponsors as they'd put it.

Kane or Haaland won't be coming to United so its imperative we keep Cavani, he's far too good to be heading back to South America. He was superb last night, probably his best performance since he joined.

I'd like to hear a logical reason why the owners of PL clubs would vote for allowing Celtic/Rangers into the league, there isn't any.

There is certainly no premier league club who'd have turned down the opportunity to join a super league especially Leeds United so their antics last night were comical.

As for PSG the super league doesn't need them but PSG definitely needs the super league. Once the world cup is out of the way they'd be all over it. Bayern are the one super power who don't need it, biggest club in their league by a mile.
Everton wouldn't have, no way.

They actually generally have a bit of class and know their history and roots

Everton are owned by a billionaire from overseas, he's not an Everton fan. He's bought the club to make money, there is no logical reason why he or any other premier league would have turned it down. The only clubs who'd say no are fan owned clubs.
I don't think he bought Everton to make money.

united have lost their soul as a club. Everton are still in the main a club supported by local people

and I think you underestimate a lot of other clubs just because your own is interested in nothing but the pursuit of more money


Of course he didnít buy Everton to make money. There is zero chance he could achieve that. Most football clubs donít make any profit.  Itís a hobby for a person who doesnít need all the money he has.

Couldn't be any further from the truth, delusional.

Seeing as apologies are all the rage I wonder if Klopp will have the manners to apologise to Gary Neville....
You're a bit behind. Neville already apologised to Klopp "live and exclusive" on Sky Sports.
But sure Gary has just single-handedly saved football donít you know!

What exactly is Gary's intentions with Salford and just took him the 16 years to slate the Glazers, funnily enough a few weeks after United had appointed a director of football. Neville spoke well but he's clearly a huge hypocrite.

FSG are in it to make money, not sure why anyone would expect any different from the,; The only difference between them and the Glazers is they are more competent businessmen, self made men unlike the Glazer siblings who inherited their wealth.

There's 6 Glazer siblings, several of them have no interest in the club and want rid according to reports for a good few years. Not sure where they go now, revenue has stalled in recent years commercially and doesn't look there's going to be any major increase in TV revenue in the short term now either. Woodward was finally starting to understand his role too so from their point of view its a blow he's leaving.

There's one man who can really gather momentum if he opens his mouth but unfortunately Fergie has ben happy to keep quiet since their arrival and defend them.

Perhaps if the premier league and UEFA had clamped down on the Glazer takeover in the first place we wouldn't be in this situation, an absolute disgrace such a highly leveraged takeover was allowed to happen with no interference from any governing body.

Gary Neville is another hypocrite, just looks at what he's doing with Salford and had to laugh when he talked about City and what they've done to east Manchester; You'd think nobody else was interested in the land, he's highly involved with property in Manchester City Centre and has his own relationships with the council.

United were taken over in 2005 so its taken him 16 year to come out and slaughtered them, funnily enough just weeks after United had appointed Fletcher/Murtough to roles that Neville was apparently interested in.
