I'd like to throw my hat in the race for a hostile takeover.

If he can form some kind of partnership with Ratcliffe or someone like him he might have a chance, otherwise he's just wasting his time.

Under soil heating.
Knowing our luck he’d get nutmegged by Fred the Red in the centre circle as the funds get rejected.

Anybody wealthy enough to buy out the Glazers sure as hell isn't going to share it, that's for sure.

He could probably raise quite a sum from selling the original 'Kit' vehicle if he still has it!

What is actually a lot worse than the Glazers is fecking crazy owners or fan owned. That would really destroy us.

So this isn't exactly great news?
He's not serious. He's an attention whore and he knows that talking about the Glazers/United gets his name back in the news. No real potential buyer would go into business with this guy.

Hostile bid? What does it even mean? Time to get the pitchforks ready or what?

Doesn’t sound very convincing, but I respect that he appears to be doing something about it. Hopefully it’s not all hot air because even if he fails, a failed bid would get significant airtime and would add to the anti glazer momentum, which I believe is a good thing.

Weve got a better chance of Michael Bolton buying out the Glazers than this guy...

Kudos for him to start asking the question even though its a futile effort.

We need some one like Jim Ratcliffe to come onboard and buy us from the leeches.

There should be a protest against the Glazers before every home game

It means the club is not officially for sale, so your consortium pays way over the odds for each share to guarantee that most shareholders will sell to you.

In my head he is doing jazz hands everytime he says ‘hostile bid’. :lol:
I can’t think the glazers let alone anybody else will take him seriously. I certainly don’t.
