He made one valid point about years of no firm footballing structure and a banker dispensing the cash. Other than that, he has the vibe of an out of touch old geezer on the brink of senility. Painful viewing tbf.
Yes but Souness is not seeing the forest for the trees. Supporters are tired of non-football people like Woodward and Arnold being given the responsibility of spending those funds. That, coupled with the owners’ complete communication disconnect with the fans, is what fuels the fans’ hatred, something that existed prior to the ESL fiasco.
Aye, I'd generally be of the same view. But he was right about the amount of money spent, how it was spent and who was in charge of the spending. A billion spent on the team and they've taken about a tenth of that out in dividends as part of the debt servicing, which is also around 1bn including dividends, interest and payments. If the Glazer's didn't spend such big sums on the team or were just taking money out all the time and paying the debt. Then Utd would be like Newcastle under Ashley and probably have Steve Bruce in charge.
