United Join Ashburton Bottling Factory

United Join Ashburton Bottling Factory

The news emanating out of Stretford that David Gill is touting himself to head up the idea of Financial Fair Play in the Premier League is the clearest indication yet that the destitutes along Sir Matt Busby Way are scared of the developments in Manchester.

Gill clearly adopts the view that Platini's blue print (it is a blue print as it is aimed purely at City) should be followed to the letter in the Premier League is surely an effort to try to drive down transfer fees and to make it that once again only the Stretfords can afford to buy top players based purely upon turnover. They have the biggest stadium so they get more money than anyone else.

What depths will they plummet to in order to get their own way? Not for them the competition offered in East Manchester, oh no 'It's ours, all ours and ours only' is the message from the red morass. Nobody else is invited. In the same way as the red knight self-admittedly cheats his way through each match to gain any advantage he can for his team, the uncomfortable Gill has now adopted similar tactics.

Gill hopes that this will re-pave the way for Stretford to resume as a major force in football in England and Europe rather than being just another left behind by the real wealth of Sheikh Mansour as the Glazers fund all of their enterprises out of the Stretford Sow's Ear.

So, he has the support of up to 10 members of the Premier League. No doubt this includes the Ferguson Grovelling Crew from Everton, Stoke, Wigan et al, teams who have forgotten that they would be dead if bigger clubs didn't buy their players at inflated prices.

These clowns make me laugh and make me sick. Why don't they just get on with the idea that the noisy neighbours have shut them up and get on with making it a competition?

Instead they whinge about the outcomes of new-found wealth v new-found lack of wealth. I'm sure they never spent a lot of money on players did they? They were just fortunate enough to be able to do it on a pay-as-you-go basis. Now that the Blues have not only caught them up but have got a much better playing roster than they have it's whinge, whinge, whinge...

What do you expect him t do ..........the Scum are on the run and soon Rednose will have his slippers on at home (as will Scholes, giggs and Ferdinand) and the Glazers will take out another slug of capital and tgry and flog some shares in Mongolia. The rea truth is the Scum are morally and fiscally bankrupt .........they will be the Rangers of English football ........cant wait.

Great article and United's complete lack of class and dignity has been magnified since "that" day. All summer through fabricated or exaggerated polls they have been telling the world how "massive" they are (such as them having 659,000,000 fans... somehow getting that number from a survey of around 50,000 people) and of course the constant potshots at the only football team in Manchester while, as always, our lot maintain a dignified silence and just get on with business. The funniest thing about this latest attempt from Stretford is that Whelan, a Fergie laptop, has outright stated they are doing this out of fear of City, but he will support it anyway as he's bumchums with Fergie and might get Bebe on loan in exchange for his support. But they will need at least 16 votes to push this through I believe and a fair few teams won't support it if they think it through carefully and what it means (it'll hurt a club like Villa MUCH more than City - we have arrived at the party and our revenue streams are in the process of skyrocketing). These rules will just thicken the glass ceiling between the top 4/5/6 and the rest.

Absolutely spot on. The rags can't repeatedly break transfer records anymore. They're desperate.

Won't be a problem anymore than Fifa's plan won't be a problem. We'll just have to do an Etihad Campus II. We can redevelop the Olympic Stadium and use it our training and Acadamy school of footballing excellence and also a centre for offering schooling and guidance for young people from around the world and called it The Etihad World Youth Training and Development Centre and let them pay us £100 million a year. Sorted. Cushtie !!!
