All of this definitely helps, but I think the time has come to be organized. If all fans now see this as the end game, which I think we do, then I think it's time for something structured, organized, and centralized with a name and a face. Something fans can back globally in order to carry the fight to the glazers where they will really feel the pain. At the moment they see us as fans bumping into each and disorganized. There's so much potential to really hurt the Glazers, particularly in the media, but I just think it has to be a structured organized movement for fans to unite behind and promote everywhere. From the man in the street, to the rich and famous, celebrities, and even ex players.It seems the Glazers won't sell and as much as people can protest at the ground and cause disruption, how effective will it actually be?
However would indirect action be more effective, such as putting pressure on Adidas and the like to help force the Glazers out.
The sponsors bring in tons of cash and if they threaten to pull out, then that could force the Glazers to sell.
I don't know what the best way to do this is beyond a simple boycott or certain companies.
So, silly idea or credible?
