They have actually extracted hundreds of millions out of the club tbf

Old Trafford is going to pot, it needs massive rehab

lets look at the biggest transfers

Lukaku and Di Maria were sold off at a negligible loss (only £15m total)

 

that leaves (£50m or more)

Pogba £94m

Maguire £78m

Martial $54m

Fred (bust) £53m

 

two more at £40m to £50m

Bruno

AWB

 

all the rest were under £40m (two are at £40m (barely, like 200K) now when adjusted for inflation, Matic and Mata)

 

for comparison

Barca spent

£400m (around £700m when salaries are added in)

on just 3 players, all busts

Coutinho

Dembele

Griezmann

 

 

 

1 fucking Billion spent since 2013........Four managers. 36 signings. From Moyes to Ole, Fellaini to Cavani.

I just noticed Leeds went undefeated in the last 4 matches against us, United, Liverpool and even beat City, amazing stuff hopefully does it again against Tottenham next round.

We probably don’t have to worry about Spuds at this point but they’re still annoyingly close behind us.

If we are worried about Spurs and more worryingly Bale we have problems.

We have City, Arse, and Leicester all on the bounce. It’s not totally inconceivable at all that we could lose all 3. Spuds meanwhile have a few teams that may already be on the beach. 
 

I trust our boys in the biggest matches of our season, but strange things can happen.

Glazers bought Manchester United with money borrowed against the club they were buying. They spend over 50 million a year just paying the interest of that debt, syphoned from the club,  and they still take huge dividends to line there own pockets. I'm with the mancs on this. 

Its a disgrace that this was approved by the FA. They need to take a look at themselves with their 'only fit and proper persons can own clubs; mantra, when that obviously doesnt include financial parasites.

Why are Arsenal still being spoken about like a top team? Not saying it's a guaranteed 3 points but the table doesn't lie Everton or West Ham would be a harder game. I would argue 3 of Tottenham's final 4 fixtures are harder than this Arsenal at home and even the one that isn't is a fixture they've lost the last two season's.

Furthermore i still don't get why we keep banging on about easy/hard games, firstly if our top 4 chasing rivals were making the most of these games they wouldn't be our top 4 rivals they would be close to City and secondly we've had the "hardest" run in last two season's and made it on both occasions.

Spurs are a worry because they have enough firepower to comfortably win those last four games. But, if they did that it would mean they won their last 6 on the bounce, which is some ask. 

Top four might easily go down to the last day with 5 teams still in with a chance.

Arse were arguably in their worst run of form and ravaged by injury if I remember correctly the last time we played them and they still came out and battered us. Their players seem to love raising their levels against us. So if they can play a part in damaging our top 4 chances they’ll relish it.

I 100% expect them to be a tough out.

They maybe tough in a plucky mid table sort of way but so will Villa/Leeds.

Although that said if we both make our respective European finals this week I doubt either team will much of a shit about it.

I'm actually really annoyed that game did not go ahead with United and Liverpool. United still had a purpose to play for. Not wanting to gift City the title win, especially from their fierce rivals Liverpool and also they aren't mathematically guaranteed top 4. By the time the game is rearranged, United will be guaranteed top 4 and will have focus clearly set on Europa League final. Not happy about that at all. That team Unite put out yesterday, let's see if they put out that strong of a team in rearranged fixture...
