If we were to relegated I would feel sorry for the international fans who may have limited access to being watch games due to us being in the Championship.I wonder if relegation is the only way of dropping Glazers and the Woodward disaster, and therefore long-term saving the club. I don't think United will lose many supporters, most of us have been with them for years but they will lose sponsorships. There is no way sponsors will keep pouring millions onto a championship team, just doesn't make sense. Lost sponsorships may mean the snowflake Glazers jumping off the ship and obviously no sane owner will keep Woodward.
Let's all pray Glazers do not decide to "stick it out" though, since clearly United won't stay in championship for too long... #whatHaveWeTurnedInto
The biggest downside of relegation is that international fans will have no way to watch the games. At least not legally
Most likely scenario: in the second half, when it's clear we are heading towards relegation, they will fire Ole, bring somebody in, the players will put some effort into last several games and we will escape relegation by a point or so.
Honestly, for long-term prospects, I see it as worse than getting relegated because we'd have learned nothing, changed nothing.
You make a good point in the part in bold which I agree with. I want us to stay up but not just by scraping through and just a avoiding relegation as I think Woodward and the Glazers will not think that there is much wrong and we will be in for another sh!teshow next season
