Green and gold until Park is sold…

There are United players past and present for whom I have zero or close to zero affection. Some are obvious – I think of Neil Webb skulking off against Forest as the world caved in …

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.

Making the Glazers happy?

If anyone was wondering whether the green and gold campaign could continue after so many people renewed their season tickets and bought their new AON shirts, then fear not cos those crackpot militants of MUST are reading the riot act once again (ps legal person – that is not a suggestion that anyone should perform any acts of violence).

Reds Fear Direct Action… apparently
March 20, 2010 – 11:48 am | One Comment

Interesting article from The Times today. Interesting because it seems to suggest that some Reds are worried about “militant” United fans resorting to direct action, which would definitely not include the sending of an email …

On the other hand

There has been a fair amount of criticism on here of the Green and Gold campaign. Here’s my take.

Wresting Manchester United FC from the clutches of the Glazers is a tall enough order. Doing so in a way which leaves supporters with a proper say in how their club is run may seem well-nigh impossible. But it surely, surely has to be attempted. It’s not only the best chance since the take-over, it’s the last chance. It has to be tried.

Group Hug…

Group Hug…

I have heard it described as “inspired”, “tokenism”, “genius” and “the latest fashion item which means very little in the grand scheme of things”.
