Also didn't they bring in 14 loan players or some shite, when the limit is 7. But they got away with it

Fuck em tbf they cheated in Division 1
They only have one Italian in the squad and he's on loan from a Chinese team. You're right about the Pozzo family being owners though.
I'm on about their time in the Championship. Not sure what it's like now, haven't looked into it.

The Pozzo's can get fucked though
You can say what you want about the Pozzo family, their business practices and twisting the rules but at least their business model is to take a struggling club and make it successful. The Glazers, on the other hand, appear to have the opposite model.

Joe Hart, Seb Coe and the Pozzos.

I'd be a good owner... really don't see why it needs to be so difficult... run the club to it's level... let it pay its own way... no more, no less... simple... United is a fuckin monster... it should be competing at the elite level, and still have cheap tickets, treating it's fans with due respect, and still making an obscene profit, that could go towards all sorts of good causes, which would obviously bring United a lot of global respect, and increase it's appeal... the problem is some cunt always needs to make a buck for his own pocket... it's not enough that they're already pissing rich... I always thought United would be an ideal club for Branson... he's actually pretty open minded about certain things being run non profit, and United and Virgin would make an attractive couple...

I could be wrong, and no doubt someone here will tell me one way or another... but I feel like I remember a story several years back about how the Glazers gutted our scouting system...

Don't believe all you read about Branson. He's got a pretty good PR team behind him.

Branson is the main investor behind the privatisation of the NHS

I went to a walk in centre the other day and all the services and staff were paid for by Virgin. The NHS rents it off em. But it won't be long before we're paying for that service individually.

Of course he does... they all do, but I always respected his stance on the National Lottery... should be non profit... and I'm not sure about your claims, that he's after the NHS Sid... I won't argue it, because I don't know... but Branson is well involved in a lot of very progressive Global projects, with some very progressive people, and privatizing the NHS would put him completely at odds with most of them...

Nah really Alf, he's not good, he's not nice. I'm pretty sure Virgin are one of the biggest investors in the services rented to the NHS. They're well poised for when we have to pay. They only want the profitable bits though, they don't want complicated, expensive, non profitable long term services like the child heart unit in Leeds that was threatened with closure. There's no money to be made in long term complicated illnesses in children. You can only look after them if you care, because it takes a lot of time, effort and money to keep em alive. And Virgin have no interest in that.

I mean he would probably be a better owner than the Glazers, he might even invest some of his own cash. But nobody can run a club like the fans can. They are the only ones who care, who are passionate, who have a genuine love, who turn up for decades even when they're shit. You can have money men do the money stuff, footballers do the football stuff. But it should be democratically run by the fans and these money cunts should have no power and be totally accountable. Woodward would be long gone if we were in charge.
