  • MUFC new 24 September 2019

    Klopp being a nice guy ....

    “I’m really proud and happy that I can announce that from today on I am a member of the Common Goal family.”

    “While it is flattering to receive an individual award today, in football and in life, nothing is possible without teamwork.

    “That is why I would like to celebrate this occasion by sharing that I am joining Common Goal and pledging one per cent of my earnings to help change the world through football.

    “Since Common Goal started two years ago, the movement has grown steadily proving it is a simple, effective and safe mechanism for players and managers to give back through football.

    “As a team, even with a minimum pledge of just one per cent, together the football industry is capable of transforming the world. Now is the time for those interested to take a step forward.”

    “The results are going to be up and down all season. I’m prepared to accept that, as long as they challenge for the top four.

    “I’m more concerned about the director of football situation and the way Ed Woodward is building the club. He’s rightly getting a lot of stick - people who appoint managers should be made accountable.

    “For the results, for the structure of the club, for the recruitment, and so on. Woodward isn’t a football man, he’s a money man.

    “From that perspective, I’m sure he’s doing a great job - but the fans don’t give a toss about the money if it isn’t being invested back into the team.

    “They want Manchester United-quality players on the pitch, to be entertained, to be winning things, and they’re not getting that. It doesn’t look like a United team any more.

    “The fans at United are unbelievable, they’ll get behind the team no matter what. But they deserve so much more.”

      ‘Ole will realise that that’s a really poor performance and that he has a lot of work to do.

      ‘I shouldn’t be surprised. This team is not ready. There will be lots of pain and it was painful today.

      ‘They were lethargic. When you let games drift and pass by, other teams gain confidence.

      ‘I’m not panicking but they need to really quickly and efficiently identify five or players to go alongside De Gea, Maguire.

      ‘They need a couple of midfielders, a striker to carry the frontline, a wide player and a left back. They know what they want and the fans know that.

      ‘But they have to be of the right type. It could take 18 months to find the players you want. I wanted United to win today but I’m not surprised. I’m not surprised West Ham did a job on them.’

        Financial results are due out today ... and Mark Ogden reckons we will announce record revenues ... and he had this comment to make about it


        "Since Sir Alex Ferguson retired six years ago, United have excelled in just two areas: making money off the pitch and failing, repeatedly, on it. Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, the man charged by the owners with running United on a day-to-day basis, stated in May last year that "playing performance doesn't really have a meaningful impact on what we can do on the commercial side of the business."

        Tuesday will be a good day for Manchester United and the Glazer family, when the club are expected to announce record annual revenues in excess of £615 million.

        Once again, the self-styled "world's biggest football club" will prove themselves to be top of the league, certainly among their Premier League counterparts, when it comes to making money. The problem for United, however, is that the good news stops with the financial results. On the pitch, under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, performance continues to be hugely disappointing as they fall further and further behind Liverpool and Manchester City.

        City's most recent results saw the champions post an annual turnover of £581m, while Liverpool reported £455m. Even 12 months ago, United outstripped them both by announcing turnover of £590m.

        Since Sir Alex Ferguson retired six years ago, United have excelled in just two areas: making money off the pitch and failing, repeatedly, on it. Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, the man charged by the owners with running United on a day-to-day basis, stated in May last year that "playing performance doesn't really have a meaningful impact on what we can do on the commercial side of the business."

        Playing performance is certainly not matching up to commercial success right now. Whether it truly matters to the Glazers, only they can say.

        At a recent fan forum, United did insist that "while our successful commercial operation helps drive investment, the priority is the focus on achieving success on the pitch." And that means Solskjaer is in the firing line as United continue to tread water in the Premier League.

        Sunday's 2-0 defeat at West Ham was United's 10th in their last 19 games under the Norwegian, an abject run of form stretching back to their last away win in all competitions, against Paris Saint-Germain, in March. The buck always stops with the manager: David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho can all attest to that. But he can only work with the hand he's dealt and as such, questions must be asked of the Glazers and Woodward.

        As part of his responsibilities, Woodward will have to give his assessment of United's current health when he addresses investors on Tuesday. It will be a tough call for him. If he focuses purely on the financial results, it will be akin to Nero fiddling while Rome burns. But if he addresses the failures on the pitch, and how United continue to drop behind City and Liverpool while being forced to play in the Europa League, will he speak about the shortcomings in the boardroom that have left the club in its current state?

        Since Woodward stepped into the role ahead of the 2013-14 season, in tandem with Moyes' appointment as manager, United have finished an average of 21.5 points adrift of the champions. But the money keeps rolling through the tills.

        Throughout that time, Woodward and the Glazers have overseen the sackings of three managers, the signings of expensive flops like Angel Di Maria, Memphis Depay, Alexis Sanchez, and well as poor strategic planning behind the scenes.

        When Mourinho was sacked last December, United spoke of the determination to hire a technical director to help with the process of player recruitment, yet almost 10 months on, they have still not made that crucial appointment. Sources have told ESPN FC that some candidates have shied away from pursuing the role because they would have to report directly to Woodward rather than have a direct line to the owners -- a red line for those who believe that the position requires some kind of relationship with the people who sign the cheques.

        The Glazers, meanwhile, remain silent on the decline of United as a force on the pitch and those who have dealt with the owners talk of nice guys who lack the edge of those who simply want to win.

        Supporters have never accepted the Glazers due to their leveraged takeover in 2005, which plunged United into debt (net debt stood at £301.7m in the last quarterly figures) and, as reported by The Guardian in October 2018, their ownership has led to more than £1 billion being drained out of the club in interest charges.

        Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer responded to the criticism from former Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho after the side's 2-0 loss to West Ham.

        Across town, Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan has invested more than £1 billion at Manchester City in 11 years, so the shifting fortunes of both clubs is perhaps easy to understand.

        While City have spent wisely, recruited smartly and upgraded the Etihad Stadium on a regular basis, United have gone the other way, with the lack of investment at Old Trafford being summed up by the leaking roof ahead of last season's derby game against City which saw a torrent of water gush down onto the seats in the Sir Bobby Charlton Stand.

        Bad signings, an aging stadium and a lack of urgency when making key appointments are all issues that have defined the Glazer era, and most noticeably since Woodward replaced David Gill. But perhaps it's no real surprise. Supporters of the Glazers' NFL franchise, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, have witnessed a drift into obscurity since the team won the Super Bowl in 2003, and United now appear to be heading the same way.

        The money is still coming in, as Tuesday's numbers will show. And as Woodward admitted, what happens on the pitch doesn't affect United's financial power off it. In the eyes of the Glazers, maybe the ongoing struggles of the team are only a minor issue to them.
