If you want to ‘know your enemy’ this, from 2004 and pre Utd takeover, is worth a read.

Their method of paying little and extracting lots is well established.

First out the taxi. Last in the pub. We all know a Glazer.

How long before ffp brings a halt to the rags excessive spending?.
Are they trying to buy the league or are they happy with top 4 (or 6)?
Why is it ok for them to continually increase their debt burden without sanction?
Who is going to call their bluff?
I think the next few transfer windows will tell a story...

A club in free fall, fantv making profit from their demise, owners not willing to invest properly, living off past glories, a succession of failed managers, media spotlight.

It's Arsenal all over again, all we need are the fan protests and banners on planes, and I think we've even had that. Mid table club in 3 or 4 years (Unless they hit lucky)
They're still splashin' the cash though, so I dont see such a precipitous fall as Arsenal. We can hope tho!

I want them to fail catastrophically like Barcelona have, I hope they keep spending fortunes on dross and the glazers go bust and take that club with them.

Phil Jones might get another contract extension.

The Glazer empire is a huge bubble which is waiting to burst. Their so-called shopping mall businesses make no money and are apparently built on huge debts (even before Covid). In fact they appear to be just a collection of shell companies with no substance at all. It is impossible to find out because their finances are buried in the Cayman Islands.
Their main cash cows seem to be the Tampa Bay Bucs and MUFC but these organisations are also underpinned by a huge mountain of debt. As stated on here the Glazers' original wealth was generated in the Texas oil fields.
What is clear is that they pay virtually no tax, certainly not in the UK, but they continue to take cash out of MUFC. They have invested virtually nothing in the UK or the local community of Greater Manchester. When you look at the community projects on their website they are essentially PR spin with little actual investment. Even United fans themselves acknowledge the Glazers are a total disgrace. So why is no one from the UK media investigating what the hell is going on with these characters?
