    The revenue has tripled under the Glazers - and that is down to the fact that they have set up regional marketing that has built on their world wide reputation. So one of the fundamental arguments underpinning the protests on Saturday 'that we don't need an oligarch' is because of the Glazers. The fact that they have spent a billion on players is relevant - it absolutely is. Their arguments are that the Glazers are hampering them through taking money out - whereas the argument is not so straightforward. How can you be hampered when you are spending so much money on the team? And those who are supporting United - are also ignoring, either deliberately or simply seeing it ass irrelevant - the complete and utter lack of support from United supporters when we were in a much worse position, because of a leveraged buyout in 2010. That suggest to me that they are not against leverage buyouts - otherwise they would have supported us. It is just them, and their club. This isn't a wider argument for football ownership. It is them taking advantage of the current attitude towards protests (violent ones) and venting their frustrations. I am not in the slightest bit arsed about whether it was a legitimate protest or not - because if it had of been us protesting it would been laughed at, and ridiculed - and we know that because that is what happened between 2007 - 2010. If Saudi Arabia took them over tomorrow - not one United fan would protest against that. So, forgive if I don't want to include their tantrums into a wider discussion about football ownership.

    Also, to clarify. I get why United fans want the Glazers out and why they look at it and think "that billion quid they've trousered could have gone on signings". I'm just saying, fuck them. I'm not backing their 'cause' or sympathising with their 'plight' and I'm not going to say what they did on Sunday was ok.

    The more I think about it, the more those United fans remind me of the Trump voters on Jan 6. All they were missing were the red MUGA hats. Make United Great Again! Let’s look at the (half serious) parallels shall we? A mob whipped into a frenzy by an idol the rest of the country thinks is an absolute cunt. They’re feeling disenfranchised, they’re told they’re being ripped off, that their very identity has been taken away. They march on the seat of power, the symbolic home of the place they profess to love and want to take back from illegitimate occupants, chanting their protest songs on the way. They violently bypass a hugely undermanned security operation, gain access to the hallowed territory and proceed to wreak destruction along the way. Abusing and assaulting those who attempt to stand in their way. People are seriously hurt. Most of them are taking videos and selfies the whole time, absolutely revelling in being somewhere they shouldn’t. All the time saying “this is our house, not theirs” When the cops eventually show up, the aggression is turned on them. The only reason there wasn’t deaths in this instance is because both sides weren’t armed to the teeth as they are in the US. The MUGA goal was to stop the football match, the MAGA goal was to prevent the certification of an election. In the aftermath, allies in the media sought to sell it as a peaceful protest, that they were simply passionate people who couldn’t take it anymore and we’re left with no other option. They just weren’t being heard! The United fans actually have a lot in common with your proverbial Trump voter. They’ve been left behind. They’ve lost their identity. Once proud and dominant they’ve been surpassed by neighbours and rivals they mocked and derided throughout their lifelong era of dominance. A country/sport that once only existed to serve their needs now makes them feel like second class citizens. Now they’re just another group of disillusioned, vulnerable people seeking a figurehead that can take things back to the way they used to be. They don’t know what to do with that information. They aren’t used to it. They wanna Make United Great Again!

    That's absolute bollocks. Never in the history of broadcasting - while live mass violence is ongoing, in part directed at the actual broadcasters - have people thought: You know what, ignoring all that abuse and those flares and any potential threat to the safety of all those around us, we really ought to consider the legitimacy of these drunk fuckers' supposed grievances! Souness wasn't having it. And even if he talks shite about the Man United ownership, he's under no obligation to take seriously the idea of just peaceful protest in that instance. Neville and Carragher were cultivating that lie for their own reasons. But it remains a fucking lie. As all available footage illustrates. And Souness was the only member of the Sky team who questioned it.

    You need to not take is so personal scott, this is an Internet forum full of opinionated cunts, some will give their opinion and leave it at that, others will keep throwing it at everyone at every opportunity they get. Individually it is up to the poster what type of cunt they want to be and no amount of arguing is going to change their type, might even make them more entrenched. Your not a bad poster but recently you are coming across as "I'm special cause I have been to loads of games and protests" if you are ok with that don't be surprised when people want to take a pop at you.

    I'm just so tired of these people, what exhausts me the most is that it's not even genuine, it's actually a 'job', in modern Britain and the USA, saying inflamatory shit is actually a career option when your career hits the skids, something that gets you called on radio shows and Questiontime and lets you sell mugs and keyrings. If that's not fall of Rome shit, I really don't know what is. "All fat people should be gassed" "OMG can't believe he/she said that" "Hi it's Pandora fuckbucket here from Newsnight, would you come on our show for three grand?" "yes please."

    Liverpool fans who say ‘good on them’ for Sunday’s protest probably get out of their car and apologise profusely when somebody intentionally rear-ends them.

    My daughter is bang into unicorns, so using her Peppa Pig foaming soap I fashioned a Unicorn horn and placed it on my head. It went wrong. Badly wrong. .

    The mancs are planning another protest for the rearranged fixture, if anything stops this game going ahead again, then they should give us a 3-0 win. I couldn’t give a fuck about them and their “plight” they laughed at us when we had the other 2 clowns. They sing always the victims and murderers. The cunts hung a banner on the motorway calling us murderers. Anyone climbing into bed with them should remember that. Fuck them. Glazers in.

    Any football 'reset' will start and end with United getting rid of the Glazers and being bought by China or the Saudis, and then blowing everyone other than City out of the water with their spending power. Maybe thats something that all these Reds wanting to stand 'shoulder to shoulder' with these cunts should think about. This isn't the start of some fan revolution utopia that will see us all end up owning our own clubs. That's never going to happen, so if the difference between United spending 1 billion or 2 billion on players is the Glazers, then call me selfish, but thank fuck for the Glazers.

    Who exactly are we supposed to be standing in solitary with? A load of early teens in tracksuits and dodgy haircuts taking selfies as they smash up the ground of the club they ‘love’. Some random piss heads who wander in with their plastic bags full of cans and have a technically substandard kick about. Him who fired a flare at the Sky gantry containing one of their greatest ever captains. The lowlife who showed his nobility by slashing the face of a policeman. Or maybe the more peaceful protesters, if we can find any, that have never involved themselves with ‘murderers’ chants or other unsavoury anti Liverpool behaviour. Just let me know who it’s supposed to be and I’m there with my, club shop bought, green and yellow scarf.
