Well put it together. Let's use their past behavior as an indication.

But that is probably the last place I would expect to get one.


Why do you think they expected one? I mean, getting statements and photos from well-known people while they doing other things is so common that there is a term reserved for the journalists who do it. The journalists were getting a story regardless of this particular Glazers's reaction.

They probably didn't. Just sounds like this is a pretty pointless piece of news, unless the purpose was to laugh at Sky for wasting the money do this.

LMAOO you think they wasted money?

They got what they wanted, and created plenty of traffic because of the non statement

If they make money off of it, congrats to them, but this is close to the premise of a potential MadTV/SNL skit.

What the frick are you talking about? The purpose was clear, to catch one of the owners of the club outside of their usual confines in order to either obtain a statement, or reinforce an existing narrative. Guess which one Avram chose? Sky almost certainly made money doing this. The title of the piece alone probably made them a quite a bit of money.

That may be your reading, but Sky turned it into something that would drive clicks, by simply adding the word 'refuse' to the title. It is like you are being willfully ignorant on how journalism works, for some reason. You aren't their target audience, and for them, this was an extremely low effort story that also doesn't make them look bad at all, as their interests are aligned with the general feeling among fans in England.

Exactly. Of course it is clickbait, but they understand their market.

Does it kill you that City’s owner only joined out of fear of missing out in case the super league succeeded and then also led the crash of the entire idea?

City also are bound for a UCL final while United cant sniff a trophy.

I remember SCH criticizing Mansour as an owner who saw the club as a play thing. The management style along with the success points in the complete opposite direction.

It literally is, it’s used as a vessel to promote Abu Dhabi as a first world tier one country. They do this on multiple fronts. It’s a state sponsored club that has already been caught doing loads of shady shite.

They hired the best people money can buy, bc money is no object. Even then it took 10+ years to get it right and the best manager of this generation to finally make a final

It took Billions to get City to a champions league final

And at the end of the day they will always be the little brother

Sunday got more attention than City making the final

From Wiki

quote:

In May 2005, Malcolm Glazer purchased the 28.7 per cent stake held by McManus and Magnier, thus acquiring a controlling interest through his investment vehicle Red Football Ltd in a highly leveraged takeover valuing the club at approximately £800 million (then approx. $1.5 billion).[172] Once the purchase was complete, the club was taken off the stock exchange.[173] Much of the takeover money was borrowed by the Glazers; the debts were transferred to the club. As a result, the club went from being debt-free to being saddled with debts of £540 million, at interest rates of between 7% to 20%.[15][174][175]

In July 2006, the club announced a £660 million debt refinancing package, resulting in a 30 per cent reduction in annual interest payments to £62 million a year.[176][177] In January 2010, with debts of £716.5 million ($1.17 billion),[178] Manchester United further refinanced through a bond issue worth £504 million, enabling them to pay off most of the £509 million owed to international banks.[179] The annual interest payable on the bonds – which were to mature on 1 February 2017 – is approximately £45 million per annum.[180] Despite restructuring, the club's debt prompted protests from fans on 23 January 2010, at Old Trafford and the club's Trafford Training Centre.[181][182] Supporter groups encouraged match-going fans to wear green and gold, the colours of Newton Heath. On 30 January, reports emerged that the Manchester United Supporters' Trust had held meetings with a group of wealthy fans, dubbed the "Red Knights", with plans to buying out the Glazers' controlling interest.[183] The club's debts reached a high of £777 million in June 2007.[184]

In August 2011, the Glazers were believed to have approached Credit Suisse in preparation for a $1 billion (approx. £600 million) initial public offering (IPO) on the Singapore stock exchange that would value the club at more than £2 billion;[185] however, in July 2012, the club announced plans to list its IPO on the New York Stock Exchange instead.[186] Shares were originally set to go on sale for between $16 and $20 each, but the price was cut to $14 by the launch of the IPO on 10 August, following negative comments from Wall Street analysts and Facebook's disappointing stock market debut in May. Even after the cut, Manchester United was valued at $2.3 billion, making it the most valuable football club in the world.[187]

The New York Stock Exchange allows for different shareholders to enjoy different voting rights over the club. Shares offered to the public ("Class A") had 10 times lesser voting rights than shares retained by the Glazers ("Class B").[188] Initially in 2012, only 10% of shares were offered to the public.[189] As of 2019, the Glazers retain ultimate control over the club, with over 70% of shares, and even higher voting power.[190]

In 2012, The Guardian estimated that the club had paid a total of over £500 million in debt interest and other fees on behalf of the Glazers,[191] and in 2019, reported that the total sum paid by the club for such fees had risen to £1 billion.[175] At the end of 2019, the club had a net debt of nearly £400 million.


Damn the glazers really did frick y’all over.

I think people would get over the serviceable debt, if the Glazers actually made a payment on it

But it’s the club paying off the debt for something the club never did to take on the debt

Or if they decided to invest money into the stadium or facilities that are falling apart

But they can’t even do that, they have done less than the bare minimum as owners of a club.

Also articles coming out that they are wanting to push the commercial side of the house even more to turn the club into a 7.5 billion pound business

NFL is way more parity-laden than Premier League and the Glazers have made small-market Tampa only one of three franchises to win two Super Bowls in the last 20 years.
