Has anyone read the Guardian article by Daniel Taylor 'Rivals’ grand designs put Glazers’ neglect of Old Trafford in spotlight'?
Well worth a read - shows how far we are lagging behind because of reluctance of Glazers to spend any money on the place.

I read it, it was pretty depressing really 😞.

I read it and it is a disgrace.

It certainly was depressing.

I have been writing on here for a long time about the non development of OT under the Glazers. Yet some think the £400 debt and owners who don’t seem ambitious for football success doesn’t have any impact.

I have read the article and feel sad as well.
However, I do wonder; in every organization, we have people in charge of various sectors. Surely we have a Stadium / Grounds manager with a team of workers behind them. These are the people who will need to maintain what what we have and also make proposals for various improvements. It is only when we are certain that the above is being done, that I can confidently blame the Glazers otherwise the only way i blame them is for keeping an incompetent team (if indeed we have one) at that department all these years.
Just like the Fawtly Towers scenario, in a case a Hotel of Utd's magnitude, you can't blame the owners much IF the departmental managers aren't doing their jobs.

If there is no money available then Grounds manager can’t do much. I walked down the road behind the Railway about three years ago and there were houses and land for sale, why? Why was the club not buying the land and houses? It felt like the club have no intention to build the South stand to match the rest of the ground. They own masses of land but it would cost hundreds of millions and that is the crunch.

Red Man, i understand what you mean. However my point is that the owners won't walk down that road, they will rely on the people they employ to tell them and make a good case for buying it. It is only when we know for a fact that this has been done that we can blame the owners.
