Are you watching David Gill?

By Spuddy
Another day and yet another quote from Mr David (Debt is the Road to Ruin) Gill regarding the Glazers ownership of United, this time he’s been praising how they played so outstandingly on the pitch and helped us to another league title last season, ok, so maybe not those exact words, but near enough.

Five, four, three, two, hun.

All you have to do is look and listen out for the tiresome shite served up by the great British public and media in the build up to the match and award yourself EINEN PUNKT for each one you spot. I know you all only read The Guardian but make the effort, have a look in WH Smiths or something.

‘Fans’ group’ and ‘boycott’ in the same sentence

It appears the revolution is finally about to stumble into action. IMUSA have suggested their members should boycott season tickets at Old Trafford.

On the negative side, in a similar vein to the get out offered by the ‘wait and see brigade’ five years ago there are a number of conscience softeners for those without the gumption to carry it through. Lines such as ‘buy as little as possible in the ground.’ and ‘season-ticket holders who decide to renew are asked to leave it as late as possible before the 13 June deadline’ aren’t particularly awe-inspiring. But at least they have done what MUST still haven’t and seem to have grasped the metal of the situation beyond blowing up balloons and helping boost the alternative economy of Salford through a scarves campaign. We will ‘wait and see’ how successful these calls are and whether MUST ever does follow suit.
