Anybody going to see the U23s at Leigh Sports Village this Friday night?

Any eds. Would Wenger have the necessary skills/ knowledge to do a Dof role?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - that is, to a large degree, the role he was struggling with at Arsenal in recent years. He failed with contracts, failed to improve the squad and so I would have to say no, he would not.}

No 'Review of the day today ed1?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - no sorry mate, I couldn't scrape enough news together for it and never noticed the time early enough to pad it out with some anecdotes or something before the autolink would generate. I have set a daily alarm now to give me a warning in time to put in some filler so it shouldn't happen again.}

No problem ed.

{Ed001's Note - it should be back as normal tomorrow.}

Morning ed. With the news that the Saudi prince is interested in buying us, the potential take over hasn't gone down well with large parts of the fan base, many of whom would wash their hands of the club. Without getting into the murky waters of morals and ethics, I have a question.

Could or would the Premier League step in with their fit and proper person criteria and stop such a takeover considering the potential upheaval it could cause the club? Or is our position on the NYSE leaving us open to a takeover and the Premier League would be helpless to intervene (even if they wanted to)?


Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Upheaval would not be a valid reason to say a Saudi Prince was not a fit and proper person. It is nothing to do with the NYSE.}

16 Oct 2018 10:19:09
I don't think you would have to look hard to find a valid reason to object to their potential ownership.

Agree2 1Disagree

16 Oct 2018 10:40:28
City got took over twice by people with dubious reputations with no problems. I don't think the Saudis would have any problems either.

Agree3 0Disagree

16 Oct 2018 10:43:03
There is probably means and ways around the fit and proper persons test if they wanted to make it happen.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Oct 2018 10:16:57
is there genuine interest from the Saudi Prince in buying Utd ED002 or is it just a false story/ rumour? (heard you have a strong form of telepathy)

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - If the club were for sale there would be interest from a number of parties - but that would be entirely dependent on how it were to be sold, and critically what ever means would give the best return from the owners.}

16 Oct 2018 10:33:47
or are the Glazers looking to sell up or be open to a sale? should have sent it with the previous questions, my bad Ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - The club is not being offered for sale at this time.}

16 Oct 2018 11:43:29
Thanks ED002.

Agree0 0Disagree

Reports now are saying any bids over £4 billion would be considered. 😆😆.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Oct 2018 08:53:08
The Glazers still control 90% of the stock, or thereabouts, so, notwithstanding our public company status, we are effectively a private company and any takeover/ merger is dependent on the desire of the controlling shareholders to sell at the price offered. If a Saudi prince were to purchase Manchester United he would probably delist it and take 100% control. The NYSE does not bar Saudis from owning stock in listed companies anyway.

Reports in a certain newspaper saying the crown prince of Saudi Arabia is thinking of investing or buying Manchester United. These things take years to get over the line, wondering if any of the ED's have heard any rumours further to this?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - If they are saying he is "thinking" about anything then it shows that these newspapers possess enormous powers of telepathy. This will, I assume, be the same superhero that shared Mr Mourinho's sacking 10 days ago with the gullible Manchester United supporters - or perhaps the arrival of Zindane the following day? I suspect that don't have any superpowers at all and this arose when Mohammed bin Salman was pictured looking at a couple of derelict semi-detached houses in Moss Side that he is rumoured to be knocking through in to one.

If he were to take over at least you wouldn't have any of those silly women attending games anymore.}

Brilliant Ed, reading some of your responses is one of the best things on the site.

Not to be funny but ed001 has said on the rumours page that that the Mourinho sacking story came from a legitimate club source.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - that doesn't mean it is true. It could have been the source's opinion. It could have been deliberately leaked by someone trying to force him out. Or it could have been a story given out in a hunt to find out who is leaking stories from within the club. Or it could have been genuine and reversed when the story was leaked. Just because the source is a good, genuine source does not always mean the info will be correct.

I remember Mick McCarthy was almost sacked by Wolves a few weeks before it actually happened. The then-owner Steve Morgan made the decision after the game to sack Mick in the morning. Only a couple of people knew, and one told me, the problem was Morgan slept on it and calmed down by morning and gave Mick another chance. Made me look a right melon on the Wolves pages.

I don't know if this journalist has been stitched up, made a genuine error or if he knowingly just stirred crap, as I do not know the guy in question. The only thing I know is he sourced the story from within United and that was why they banned him from talking about it pitchside just before a game. Quite rightly they felt it was taking the Michael to want to discuss leaked info which affected the team just before a game at Old Trafford.}

15 Oct 2018 19:45:18
Wow thanks for the explanation ed. That's a great insight.

Micks arse finally got put in the bacon slicer anyways.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - yeah but too late in the end to save them that season, though it looks to have worked out ok for them in the end!

And you are very welcome. This is the problem with sources, you have to be very careful to ensure you fully know if they are just giving an opinion or not. A lot of people just don't care to check these days as they just want to get a story out there and beat everyone else to it.}

16 Oct 2018 06:14:58
The same Saudi Arabia who murder their journalists? Would they be better owners than the Glazers?

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Oct 2018 10:45:26
Would they spend more than the glazers? Yes.

Are they better people than the glazers? No.

There's not many around who can afford 4 billion dollars just to buy the club. Most of these people have dodgy ethics.
