What do you guys think about Apple, Facebook, Amazon, Zara and all the big brands investment in us than Liverpool?
Even tho we are on the down and not winning much in the last 10 years.
MU's brand name has been very strong even during the lull period in the70s and 80s

No comment unless it is confirmed. They can link 100 buyers but it is useless if none of them end up buying.

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has been warned over his job security amid the Red Devils’ potential takeover. Current owners the Glazers may sell the club after releasing a statement confirming they are looking into the possibility of a full sale, which has prompted interest from several parties.

The Red Devils sit fifth in the Premier League table, but Ten Hag has been warned by former United midfielder Paul Parker that a potential new owner may want to bring in a different head coach. “The thing I'm most concerned about is that the new owners might want to bring in their own manager and if that happens, Man United has to start from scratch again,” Parker told Futbin.

“Glazers' time in Man United has really been dramatic. No one realised how bad it was going to end when Sir Alex Ferguson left. Glazers have been an absolute living nightmare, especially after Robin Van Persie and Sir Alex Ferguson left. The worst that could happen for the club is to get American owners again. We've already seen that it hasn't been favourable to have them in the club and we saw that in Liverpool as well.


New owners should attend every home game at Old Trafford, every cup quarter-final, semi-final & final.

Whoever takes over, hopefully the deal will be done during this WC, so the new owners can help ETH buy the players he need in Jan.
If it drags on...then nothing will happen in Jan and we'll be stuck in relying on Martial and Rashford for the goals.

We need a true striker not winger coveted as striker

Yes, hard to find any World Class no 9 these days.
The good ones are already playing in UCL.

The not so good ones will be overpriced for sure as their clubs know Utd will be desperate to pay any amount for their striker,

And after having overpaid for the player, he will end up struggling to justify his price tag and gets heat from the fans, media etc and become another flop. Not many pla6yers have the mental capability to withstand the pressure.

money money money..

Thienry henry is winger converted to striker, so is Ronaldo
Ronaldo develop to striker later on, after he has enough experience as a winger. So he knows how to position himself. And knows how he wants the crosses to come in and where it will land.

It is because Father Time is catching him up!

Deep down he knew, he has to change his game. No more flashy stepovers and showboating, but a ruthless predator. If he has to stay on the top and chase that alien, he has to change himself. Period

That's where experience comes in. Something currently lacking in our young players. Who unfortunately needs them, esp when their bodies are already breaking up and getting injured every 3-5 games. ETH system will eventually take a toll on them as they grow older and out they go...and we have to replace them with fresher younger legs.

Maybe that's why he likes to go for wingers, cos they are supposed to be able to run and chase and not just seat up there and wait for passes/crosses to come in.

there are 2 chances a peak ronaldo would have scored..
Over his peak doesn't mean he's a liability. Ronaldo is still dangerous if left alone.

It's not like he can't work with any of his teammates or causing the down fall of Portugal.

If not scoring every chance is a sign of being a liability, many players shouldn't be even called up to their national team.

play to his strength and he will be a great asset…
else he will just be jogging up and down the pitch as a teamviewer

wont be too excited about this news
some months ago already got mention they looking into selling parts of the shares

this news now only mentioned willing to sell. didn't say partial or whole.

so effectively, this can just be recycled news. and the purpose is to distract people from all the shortcomings that CR mentioned

what would be worse than having such brands or Glazers will be a consortium of owners.
like Sir Jim for example, he cant afford us alone.
sir jim alone can but prefer dubai if they are really serious in buying since they have the money to rebuild or repair all the facilities of utd as well as invest in youth academy. the manager will be able to get the players he want.
