Thousands of Manchester United fans have gathered to grieve over Glazer ownership ahead of today’s clash with Liverpool.
A protest movement against the owners was initially re-sparked by the club’s attempt to join a Super League, but the real cause of the frustration runs far deeper.
For the past 16 years there has been no communication from United’s owners, no improvement for Old Trafford, and their own money has not been put into improving the team while City retired.
The club has dangerous debt that is increasing year on year.
