    They've given you:
    1. Multiple Appearances in the final of the most prestigious tournament in the sport.....a tournament that is harder to win than the World Cup because it truly is best on best.
    2. A Champions League title
    3. Multiple titles in the most lucrative domestic league on the planet
    4. 3 of your 4 overall League Cup titles

    They've left the "football decisions" to football people, which has worked out splendidly and made you the envy of every club on the face of the Earth.

    And you can't appreciate and/or recognize that they have helped your club when it seemed like power had shifted to London, for good?

    Quite frankly, to non-Man Utd fans with any morsel of common sense, posts like yours are nothing more than an eyesore.

    2 Thumbs down......way down!

    All these were down to Alex Ferguson. He invested in Ronaldo and Rooney 1 or 2 seasons before Glazers came in. Since Glazers came in, our expenditure minus income sales has been about 20 millions pounds only in 6 years. We haven't even used the Ronaldo money yet.

    Good thing about Glazer is that he didn't interfere much with Uniteds' transfers like Abramovic for example. But the longer they are here, we'll still be in dept. Maybe this is not affecting us that much in the short term, but thats worrying for the long term.

    I don't really believe the Qatar rumors btw. How many times have we been linked with takeovers? Besides, the source says "with a "well-placed" source quoted as saying: ..." which makes me think thats just newspaper selling stuff.

    Btw, random but a funny/interesting quote from Owen:

    Starting XI:

    Subs: Lindegaard, Rafael, Brown, Carrick, Berbatov, Owen, Hernández

    WTF. Berba not starting? Who will score our goals? Rafael on the bench in favour of OSHEA? Dear god.

    Looking at our fixtures, we have to play Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool away (+ Chelsea home). We have won only 3 away games. This gotta change or else we'll have to say goodbye to the title. This is quite worrying. Arsenal only has 1 tough game left... And thats us. We better not **** up and start playing well away.

    Nah no way. He had way more time to adjust his body and the ball was almost falling down slowly on him. Rooney's goal was a ball coming strong from the side with pace. And on top of it, Rooney hit it far side into the top corner, this one is just under.

    Smalling was probably one of the best performers yesterday.

    You gotta be kidding. I'm not commenting on which goal was better (I'd probably go with Rooney actually), but clearly Rooney had a LOT more time to set up and time his shot.

    The situations were different. To pull it off when your team needed a win in an highly intense derby is somethin different altogether.

    Yeah he had more time overall, but the ball was coming in at a faster pace, at least it seemed like it did to me. Its almost like throwing the ball in the air yourself and then trying to do an overhead kick compared to having somebody cross from the side and try to do an overhead kick. You might have more time watching the guy cross then see the ball drop from over your head, but its harder to pull off.
