    maybe the barron knights they was up for a laugh

    the glazers have done a very good job at united and they could have been in alot more shit after the fergie years and they have won things under the glazers so what was the point in FUCM
    the daft ****s with 1970s style of football club still think its about the beautiful game hahahaha just look at the bank balance its a business and you will fold without backing

    they will piss in the pot of corporate money before not to long and sell out and will be just like big brother

  7. Some of the financial disasters of FC United…… fingers crossed it won’t be long before the plug is pulled…. 9taken from one of their fan forums)

    Football Academy:

    This continues to cost the club a fortune. Costs are £10,293 over budget leading to a £29,429 loss to date (though it depends how this is accounted, and whether fees for each pupil are spread throughout the year. If not... [​IMG])

    One particular figures stands out:Football Academy kit cost: £7,073 (budget £720)

  8. That balance sheet reads like their cousins in stretford if they don't make top four this year. The circle is now complete.

    Wow, just hemorrhaging left right and centre on everything.....
    Women's team, Academy, ground maintenance, even the community work!
    At least the club is true to their word.... they have always stated they are a not for profit club.....
    They simply can't sustain these figures and any financial institution (or the council) offering a loan or overdraft surely must be aware of the mess they are in??? Which begs the question why did they give them a loan or overdraft?
    This is a club that has been run by egos who loved spending other people's money. Largely tax payers money and money from fans who have been mugged off by chancers who lined their own pockets behind fans' backs
