    Where would a club which has posted £132m in profit over the last 3 years with yearly revenues of over £600m find the money to spend £300m?

    Is that a serious question?

    I genuinely can't tell if this is a serious line of questioning or not. Do you think clubs pay 100% up front? Do you think United have no cash? Do you think they couldn't borrow money like City did from a bank this year?

    Could they not offset against the Piano Man's wages?

    Sorry but I genuinely can't tell if you were joking or if you actually thought they can't afford to spend money.

    United are the biggest financial behemoth in world football. If they were run by people who weren't interested in maximising their personal profit from the club, the rest of the premier league would be getting outspent 2:1 every single window.

    This is true. The Glazers are a gift to us and the rest of the PL. They have taken a club that had circa 2x the financial power of it's nearest rival and 10x the power of smaller PL clubs and lumbered it with debt, sucked cash out to pay their own fee's and then made terrible decisions with the investments they have made. Practically any other club would have gone bust under that style of ownership. One of the only reasons they have got away with it is the managers they have appointed have been so useless and have failed in such a dramatic way that it masks the failings in the overall strategy. That and the odd tin pot victory and general spineless fan base. It truly is a perfect storm.

    Great at what?

    Selling shirts? Dabbing? Not running?

    Surely you don't mean football?
