American tycoon Malcolm Glazer has bought the majority share holding in Manchester United and is now apparently the owner of my club.
I am not familiar with the complex financial intricacies of all this but one thing is very clear. Thousands of Man United fans are very worried about this take over and yesterday Eric Cantona - one of the icons of Manchester United - came out in support of the fans protests about Glazer's take over. Eric said it was a sad day for the club.
It seems to me there is nothing but animosity towards Mr Glazer
The heritage of Manchester United football club is wonderful and most fans have a real affinity to the club. There are real concerns about the future of the club as a result of this take over. I even heard there are worries that the historic and majestic stadium Old Trafford, with all it's wonderful history might be re-named the Nike Stadium or something similar.
I advocate change on my blog all the time and breaking free of the comfort blanket is a regular statement to come out of my mouth, but there is just something about this take over that bugs me.
I have yet to read any reports or see any interviews on the TV or radio where someone supports this move - everyone seems to be against it!!
Am I missing something important? ... Or ..... Are we Man United fans just too settled in our comfort blanket?
Maybe some of my friends from America can throw some light on this guy Glazer and let me know if you think we Manchester United fans are right to be feeling nervous about his intentions.
