Its a great point.

 

Every club is guilty of that kind of hypocrisy, and so are all us fans.

 

You loved it in the prem spending too much and throwing big wages at big names, same for us throwing money around funnelled into the club via a dodgy Uzbek mate of Putin.

Everyone has a hint of that in the clubs, tax fiddles etc, all sorts.

Suppose its a matter of how much good the clubs do too, maybe its a balancing act, and not all take take take.

Agreed, those Chelsea fans with their We Want Our Cold Night's In Stoke banners, are the same ones taunting fans with wads of cash when Abromovich took tover. You can't have it both ways, wanting to dominate a league because of financial imblance that favours your club and ignore where the money is coming from and then accusing the same owners of greed and selfishness. 

I mean, Naville's rant was well shared but honest to god - has it only just dwned on people? Has everyone only now realised why these owners buy these clubs? I don't think the UAE woke up one morning and went, ''You know, I think it'd be a really great thing if we used some of our billions to develop East Manchester - I mean we've sorted out out country, time to help others.'' I'm not saying there isn't a benefical side, but this isn't charitable giving, its global politics and fans are being treated as the convienent idiots who'll ignore everything else as long as their team wins. I hope this now stops and we collectively demand more from the custodians of our clubs, even if it means sacrificing league places, cup finals etc

Salford Vain Hire - drive summat for a bit at a cost, and then drop it back and forget about it

I hate them with an absolute passion 

I see the dmbs are on about setting up another splinter club purchasing recently defunct flixton fc. Unbearable tossers.

Have their own fucking league soon.

Do they realise how much they’ve won since they took over? How much they’ve spent.

They're some of the most spoilt bastards in football they deserve nothing

They could let Bury into it.

The Neville's would know it. It's the one they should have bought.

And Salford. They are pathetic

Salford was a weird one.

Why didn't the Co92 just buy into fuckum?

Vanity project I reckon, but at least they are putting some money into lower leagues I suppose.

Could come tumbling down when they get together with other money men and try to oust the glazers.

They couldn't even if they wanted to because of the nature of FCUM's ownership model. As it is, in some quarters they're surprisingly hostile to 'modern' United as it were, particularly those who were involved post-Glazer.

Salford can fuck right off though

kind of Off Topic , but harry enfield's  "Loadsamoney" came about coz they did that at some football match either he or Paul Whitehouse went to.. 

dunno what me point is, but they were bobbins in the 80s, and its probably more to do with miners strikes, yuppies , and all that  , than football per se. 

hmmm...

As predicted this isn't going to die easily.

The UEFA tossers have resurrected the abortion of an a plan for a huge & complex 'Champions League', more talk of a reduced Premiership due to too many games ... which may, or nay not, include inviting Glaswegians to wreck England each weekend.

The Real & Juventus guys insisting the idea isn't dead, just taking a breather. Adding that clubs are legally tied in & it'd cost each £130m to walk away.

We now find that the 12 (really 15 after all) are not going to get equal shares & Barca & Real pocketing £52m a year more. The Atletico's, Inters & Spurs' of that World due to get even less of a share.

The sooner some BIG clubs fold the fckg better.

Old firm in PL is bullshit. PL teams would only vote for that if the big guns quit. 

PL teams would be more likely to get relegated and miss out on Europe places.

Aatbf it's a side show in all this.

As is the push to reduce to an 18 team Premiership so the clubs in external competitions can have time off.

The main point being that in all the high fiving that the tiny fan beat the encroaching behemoth is biix. It'll come back, bigger & bolder.

Having the Glasgow two playing here, would damage their league, in just the same way as those 6 leaving ours would.

 

Only if it meant a reduction in European spots. Otherwise, in my experience, plenty would be glad to see the back of them. Even the accountants would agree if there’s a heightened chance of a few Euros in the bank.

Exactly. You can't moan about the ESL and then in the next breath want to destroy a countries league system by nicking their two biggest clubs and all the money that goes with that.

Anybody English who wants the two Glasgow clubs in the PL is a mentalist. It works being no benefit to the PL at all, it would purely be for the benefit of Celtic and Rangers.

David Moyes’s idea.
