What has he been eating or what has the club been feeding him?

How come he looks so much bulkier and heavier than last season? Little wonder his movement became so slow and laboured especially in the box. The brain is perhaps still there, but the body won't allow him

A good read and for those who think Ed (who done everything Glazers wanted) has done enough, please read this twice.

Ever since 2005 when the Glazer debt was placed onto our club the investment into the team has been budgeted... When the Glazers first took over David Gill said exactly that word, budgeted... "We have budgeted for Sir Alex to have 25 million every transfer window... So 50 million a year"...

However, by the end of his 8 years under the Glazer regime, Sir Alex spent 299 million but including the Ronaldo transfer recouped well over 196 million of that... Giving Sir Alex an annual nett spend of just over 12 million.

Ever wonder why the squad was ageing and City caught us by 2012? From 2008 until 2013 The Mansours invested 540 million of their own money into City's team. While also investing in the Stadium a state of the art training complex and invested in the surrounding areas.. 13 years after the Glazers our average annual nett spend over the 13 years works out at under 46 million a year. REMEMBER not a penny of this is from their own pockets. Meanwhile, City's average annual nett spend since the Mansour takeover in 2008 is double that of ours at 95 million...

People naively say but the Glazers have backed the managers. Let's get this straight, The Glazers haven't put a single penny of their own money into those transfers. All the money made available for transfers by The Glazers has come out of United's pockets not their own. The money has been made available from the clubs annual year on year record revenues...not from a single penny of investment by the Glazers.

Meanwhile, they have taken over 1 BILLION out of our club, they have taken interest free loans to support their American businesses, and paid themselves (That's every one of 6 Glazer siblings, include the daughter who has never set foot inside Old Trafford ) an annual dividend and used United as a cash cow... They have not invested a single penny of their own into our Stadium.

Every manager under their tenure has towed the line when making limited or no signings by then saying "because there is no value in the market.".. Every manager that is until Jose... Jose is telling everybody how it is... stating when asked in the press conference after the game on Tuesday how far away we are from competing with Juve? Jose said Juve are one of the biggest teams in Europe. They have won their own title 7 years in a row, getting to two champions league finals... He said they are not happy with what they have they always want to improve. They had Higuain but they went out and got Ronaldo and Bonucci and Emre Can.

That was a real dig at the lack of investment at United... They must think we are stupid, telling us many times over the years that there is no value in the market but we have seen players like Hazard, Silva, De Bruyne, Suarez, Salah, Aguero etc arrive in the Premier League in this time...

Meanwhile in the last 5 years, we have lost the greatest manager of our time Sir Alex and his backroom staff, we are now on our 3rd manager in 5 years and since our last title triumph we have lost leaders and title-winning experienced players like Evra, Vidic, Rio, Scholes, Carrick, Van Persie, Rooney and Giggs. In addition from that last title-winning squad, we have also lost Rafael, Fabio, Evans, Cleverley, Anderson, Fletcher, Kagawa, Welbeck, Chicharito and Nani... We have gone through a seismic change at a time when the Glazers have continued to take 1bn out of UNITED...

Meanwhile, the debt on the club remains at 487 million...

In other words we need owners willing to splash their own money.

The Americans not gonna do that...so how? Aspire to have to a sugar daddy like Chelsea and City now? As long as they are willing to spend, doesn't matter if they are really into the club/football right and not using it as a tool to enrich themselves?
