It doesn’t matter how much we spend when we’re run by these incompetent clowns. They could spent a trillion pounds and would still manage to feck us over.
That's definitely true and basically what I said.

They left Ed Woodward in charge of it all with no DOF. That was the issue.

We've spent as much as City have. Lack of transfer funds is not a thing we can throw at them. We've spent more than enough to compete.

What we've done is wasted it and they have to take the blame there because ultimately they decide who are the people who are spending it and they have the ability to replace somebody like Ed Woodward and they didn't
The Glazers main goal was always increasing shareholder value, which in this requires spending money. City buy players that have been scouted and evaluated to fit their system, with no goal in mind other than winning football games. No comparison whatsoever.

Glazers are going to chase the absolute maximum they can get and aren’t bothered how it affects the club or it’s fans

I’ll happily predict that we’ll enter July without a preferred bidder announced
The old maxim 'they know the price of everything and the value of nothing' springs to mind when I think of the Glazers. They are part of the history of the club now but I wonder what future historians will write of them in, say, 50 years time? What will be their legacy?

Nobody has an interest in history remembering them well. Unanimous parasites

Ultimately a failure but more through poor management than financial restraint. The 'we're skint' argument that keeps rearing its head was disproven multiple times over the years but people still stick religiously to it. To the point where some genuinely will believe the two competing realities of us bring broke yet spent an arse load on players are both true

The Glazers succeeded in everything they set out to achieve at this club.

I'm not sure that's true either. This narrative that the Glazers just wanted to leach and scrimp simply isn't supported by the embarrassingly indiscriminate levels of spending over many years.

I've long maintained one of the biggest get out of jail cards they hold is the fact fans can see the biggest criticism of them in relation to restrictions on our spending simply aren't true.

I'm pretty convinced they will hold on as long as possible to see if anyome comes in at 10 billion.

So people think Ineos selling some of their assets has anything to do with buying Utd?

If that’s true, god help us.
