    #GlazersOut



    Saying this, amongst other things ...


    "The Glazers appear utterly oblivious to the fact the club is listing and lacks direction, while FSG have inserted Bostonian Mike Gordon — a significant figure at Anfield — and British-American Peter Moore.

    United are torn between wanting to send a message to the market that they will not overpay and a need to spend.

    They waited an entire window to buy Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon and ended up getting him for the same price they would have paid in the first place.

    The same fearful decision-making applied to the signing of Harry Maguire.

    When Liverpool were thwarted in their attempt to buy Virgil van Dijk from Southampton, they simply went back later and upped the offer by £15m — and got their man. They know what their priorities are and act accordingly.


    To owners with a modicum of curiosity, Woodward's track record would now be coming under scrutiny. He did sharpen up the commercial operation when he took charge. But, contrary to popular belief, it is group managing director Richard Arnold, not Woodward, who has been bringing in noodle sponsors and myriad other deals which have made United a fortune.

    A broader, more strategic perspective would also tell the ruling dynasty that Woodward has presided over Old Trafford becoming an aged, careworn place, in desperate need of upgrade and renewal at a time when Arsenal's and Tottenham's arenas place them miles ahead.

    The technically challenging expansion of Anfield is something FSG have applied themselves to and the stadium is hugely enhanced.

    Now is the point of greatest opportunity to install a director of football. There will not be the kind of opposition from Solskjaer that a signature managerial appointee like Mauricio Pochettino would present in a quest for power and authority.

    Delegating responsibility to a board director who knows the game would also give Woodward greater justification for retaining the services of Solskjaer, who has struggled.

    These are decisions for the invisible men who took the club over, but no one is expecting a revolution"
