    We moan about the human rights record of City's owner. Thank god this didn't happen.
    Also imagine your owner getting bumped off. That would be a first.

    He should have done it, would probably still have been alive today if he had.

    Imagined that happened.
    We'd be owned by practically what is now a failed state.

    City's owners, although mostly PSG's, actually had a big say in bumping him off.

    Matter of time before this is a reality in football. It's already being used this way.

    We'd be on here defending his human rights record as one big media conspiracy against him if he was landing us players like Neymar today :)

    I don't think anyone against his take-over would have kicked his van like how Glazers were terrorized in the beginning. It would have been the last time they ever had use of their legs

    Glazers, I love you all. But for them we’d have been a laughing stock or a Chity clone

    From the banks of the Irwell, to Tripoli
    We will fight fight fight fight fight for Gadaffi
    Oh ohh ohh ohhhhhh, oh ohh ohhh ohhhhhh

    Or the old school version:

    From the banks of the River Irwell to the shores of Tripoli
    We will fight fight fight for United and Muammar Gadaffi
    To hell with Barack Obama
    To hell with Hillary
    We will fight fight fight for United and Muammar Gadaffi

    Don't think it would have happened. Wasn't he under UN sanctions?

    We'd have IRA as our sponsor on our kits. Try explaining that to FFP.

    Thing is if he had bought Utd then been toppled we'd have been part owned by ISIS.

    Hitler & Stalin could've been joint managers, and the authorities wouldn't care so long as they had money.
