Someone's having a real laugh - gollum?

Would piss myself if he went somewhere pretty shit and took 4-6 points off them next season.

Specially if he turns up at old trafford in tee shirt and jeans.

We've got it wrong . Dave was a winner after all and the Glazers are laughing all the way to the bank.  The Mancs obviously like their comedy more than their football.

Manchester United has reported a sharp rise in profits and revenue despite a disappointing season on the pitch.


For the three months to the end of March, profits were £11m, up from £3.6m a year ago. The club also posted record revenues of £115.5m for the period.

He only got a years payoff.

 

Of course profits are still hood they played champions league football. They will drop next year.

The Telegraph has an article today summing up the total loss by employing David Moyes, and the final bill comes to £50.4 million, they say.

 

Roughly £35m from missing out on the CL, £8.4m from finishing 7th instead of 1st, and add in £7m for his wages/payoff.  I reckon it's actually more than that, because they seem to have swallowed the line that he only got a £5m payoff which is what United have fed the press but is surely bollocks, and they haven't included the paying off of the staff he brought with him in order to clear out all the talented and proven assistants they already had under contract.  Plus under the new TV deal there's more to the payouts than the finishing places - they may only lose £8.4m for finishing 7th, but there's also a difference in the TV payout as well that probably tacks on a few more million to that figure.

 

Add to all of that the reduced attraction to sponsors in the future (the idea that United are always going to be head and shoulders ahead of the likes of Arsenal is now irrevocably gone) and I reckon that one bad decision could waterfall into £100m in costs and reduced future income.  Staggering.  What makes it even funnier is that anyone with half a brain could have seen that hiring Moyes was a ridiculous decision.

That's a fairly candid write-up from The Telegraph.

 

Presumably it wasn't penned by their resident grim-faced scrotum Ogden, or it would have been peppered with references to Liverpool's leaky defence and how they'll struggle next year.
