The fall of a great English giant is very appalling to others but to the supporters, they have a prime example as to why this has happened. The Glazer family that also owns the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are what the fans have shown to be the downfall over the last nine years, and even before that. They were voted the worst owners in England’s top division last season and the outrage has continued into this summer and the new season.
Decisions on the board level over the last few years have screwed United. Giving players massive contracts in terms of salary which makes it hard to move a player, vetoing managers’ request to sell or terminate players, and forcing managers to pick certain players is killing the club.
Some on-field decisions seem to be political and not based on form, playstyle, or anything. Harry Maguire is undoubtedly the worst captain and waste of money in Manchester United’s history but still starts every match. Scott McTominay who shows week in and week out that he is a limited player gets picked for every game, and Marcus Rashford, who credit to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, made people believe he was good for the better part of two years, is hit and miss at best.
The club is now in disarray with the fans applying the utmost pressure on those “greedy Glazers” to sell the club with former board member Michael Knighton organizing a consortium to accomplish a hostile takeover of the club. Joel and Avram Glazer must not have any shame if you constantly go to games and the fans of your club sing that “they’re glad your brother’s in a box and they hope you are too.” If that isn’t a sign to leave before things escalate I don’t know what will.
Well, I am 18 years old currently undergoing my Bachelors of Science in Media and communications. I'm currently in my first semester and I would like to be a sports analyst in the future. I am also from Jamaica. I would like to work at one of the biggest sports companies in the world (ESPN/SKY/BT) but everyone needs a start and I would love it if you were to give me that start.
