Man United would draw 0-0 with Leeds United, all-but ending their feint hopes of a late title challenge.
Let’s be honest, the game itself was an awful one. There was no real quality on show from either side, with the final ball often being disappointing. In the end, the scoreless draw was probably the fair result.
Perhaps the highlight of the afternoon took part about ten minutes before the game kicked off. There were whispers that some Manchester United fans had organised a plane banner to take to the air – those rumours turned out to be true…
As you can see from the photo below, the banner would read ‘£2bn stolen, #GlazersOut’. This is a strong statement from the Old Trafford faithful, who have seriously had enough with the American owners, who continue to frustrate.
Check out the Anti-Glazer banner here:
This European Super League nonsense is the final straw for many. Supporters are sick of being an afterthought for these cash-rich owners who only care about one thing; money.
The Glazers and Edward Woodward were at the forefront of this awful idea and although the latter has gone, the fans now want to see the current owners sell up and get out of Manchester.
For those who have been around for a while, Glazers out protest are nothing new, though we haven’t seen them for quite a few years. This time, I get the feeling the fans won’t go away quietly if a trophy or two is won…
Now, it’ll be interesting to see how the Glazers react from here. Will they sell up and finally cash in? Or will they continue to dig their heels in?
Sadly, I suspect it’ll be the latter – purely because I’m not sure if anyone out there is going to spend the reported £4billion it’ll take to buy the biggest club in the country.
