    extract from Glazer's welcome letter to the United fans:

    Dear Soccer fans,
    As you all know, i've been looking to buy the United's of Manchester for
    a little while now. I've also heard that some of you may not be too
    happy about me using, sorry, buying the club in order to reach new
    heights and also, that I may not be a fan. Well fear not, as i'm writing
    this personal letter to let you know that i'm a genuine fan of you blue

    I began rooting for the United's back in 1992 when our little Malcolm JR
    was practising those Soccer home runs out in the yard. I loved the way
    you turned defence into offence, and the way that Bobby Shearer used to
    top half it into the goal bag. Oh man, that play was hot. My son tells
    me that you even out-zoned your City rivals Southampton in the 4th
    quarter of the FA World series. As for your current team, that Rude guy
    is awesome!!!! I see a profitable future at the United, with the young
    talent of Cristiano Rooney (man, that guy can dance!) and Peter Shilton
    giving us hope in defeating the evil Russian tyranny which assaults the
    freedom of our beloved Soccer. With the marketing potential of those
    Neville brothers and that Pearce dude leading the team, we can all look
    to acheiving our beliefs of a better future. Especially when I add
    Alexei Lalas and Cobi Jones to the starting 15.

    Now to you, the fans.
    I've been to see the United's play once before, and the respect you pay
    your team in silently admiring the play out on the pitch was
    overwhelming. Because of this, i've just purchased a new GBP45 million
    mansion in the Manchester to be close to you guys. And more good news is
    i'm planning to add an extra 10,000 seats through corporate boxes so
    more genuine blue devils can experience the play. What's with the prawn
    sandwiches I had to eat when I was there? Well, rest assured, it'll be
    super size prawn baguettes when I take charge. I can't wait to come over
    to the Manchester isles, as I love the country, especially the beaches
    and the hot chicks. I hope you can all see my vision of this future,
    with new shirt sponsors (Dunkin Donuts) and new team name (The
    Manchester Gloom) i'm sure things are looking bright.

    *Further good news for you guys is that i've just agreed a partnership
    deal with McDonalds, who will help in promoting the Manchester brand.
    This will involve re-naming the stadium to 'McTrafford' as well as an
    exciting launch of Manchester Gloom plastic fan toys in every happy
    meal. Cristiano Rooney will be the face of this campaign and during
    this, he will be marketed globally as Roonald McDonald.

    Take care dudes.

    I think this is a very sad day for English Football. I fear Man Utd will now become a Real Madrid, where players will be bought for their commercial appeal rather than their ability on the pitch and their ability to fit in with the Coaches Tactic's, system.

    No doubting he has bought Man Utd to make money, raising commercial activity in Asia and most importantly the US. Sent an e-mail back to the office and the boys there are expecting Man Utd to separate themselves from the usual TV rights deal all the Premier league clubs agree on, They are going to want a bigger piece of the pie, which, from what im told, they will get, but make them very unpopular with all the other premier league clubs and more importantly the FA.

    As i say, a sad day for English football, whoever you support

    Q) Whats the fastest way to become a Millionaire?

    A) Start as a Billionaire, and buy a football club.

    I'm not a massive fan of football, but as others have stated, when the game becomes more of a business and marketing campaign, its a sad day. I think the game of football has been secondary in the sport for a long time, this just highlights it. While money and business has boubtless aided the game, it has also taken a larg part of the fun out of the sport, IMO.

    You boys just do the new owners.

    After all, a 38p share offer plus a steak pudding for every fan evidently wasn't enough from the fan share holders...

    Sorry state of affairs though. Be warned every football club who "floated".
