Most of us will agree that the articles which appeared in Der Speigel were definitely of a defamatory nature. Also that someone was behind this be it some from within UEFA or from the G14 group of clubs. The time has now come for the board to get some backbone and to start to issuing notices to Der Speigel that we will see them in a British court and we will be suing the reporter, the editor and the owner. We will be looking for damages from the reporter, and the editor for £2 million apiece, and from the owners unlimited damages. Should this lead to the paper being closed down then so be it. Once we have gone after Der Speigel, Then the time has come to go after all the British press and do the same. The printing off an retraction stating that they were totally wrong with what they have printed will just not do. It is way to late for one of those retractions.

We should just sue the bastards.... : )

Near where the "Welcome to Manchester" sign was
I am surprised that there was no outcry about a doctored email being published in a national news publication as a factual document or that the club haven't followed up on this with Der Spiegel. Did they even issue an apology at the very least?

Have UEFA concluded their investigation into the leaks yet?

It looks like the club don't want to rock the boat, so to speak. If the club wanted to do something like issue a summons for damages. We surely would have heard or read something by now. So the question must be asked has the club done anything about these hacks or the libellous statements made by the press. If not why not and if they have then surely the fans have aright to know what the club sis doing. Even if it is only a statement that a newspaper has been issued with a summons to appear in court on a due date. I am sure this would please a lot of fans right now.

You still don’t get it do you. We don’t court controversy. We do our speaking on the field. Doing the things you suggest just gives the media an easy extra few inches in their pages. Our owner is a gentleman and just goes about his business in a calm and orderly way. He doesn’t want any kind of slagging match in public. Listen to our CEO and you might just get a clue on how we work.

Time to move on. More important things to focus on

Perhaps you should sue the club for £50 million on behalf of all fans?

Are you perchance a Johnnie Cash fan? Possibly your favourite song might be "A boy named ...." :-)
