Sanchez was woeful.  But he will be first choice now for a few games so he has to seize his chance and step up. He can’t be any worse given a run of games. 

that's what people said about BAM :P

United now lit up, a shot from behind the Best Law Charlton statue. 

This is a bit harsh I thought.

Ole,Ole oh Ole...you have done really well so far, but that was in a Diddy league against Diddy teams, when you faced your first real test against a Proper team from a Proper league the gulf in class between TGLITW* and real football teams who play against top opposition week after week was there for all to see, the only comfort for you is that you drew Chelski in the fa cuppie.

hard to imagine how United could become more disliked by many, but then this comes along

It’s only a matter of time before the Glazers cash in to someone who can afford to buy them out.

Why would they be more disliked? Because an Arab owning them? Or which Arab would be the owner?

If they get that number, what a great investment. Plus all the money made though the 14 years.

It's the "who". MBS may be precluded from attending matches in most civilized states.

Probably because the PL would become a two team league like Spain for the next twenty years. 

No City has been truly hated because of it ownership more than any other club, but maybe Newcastle

Reports this morning that Martial and Lingard could both be back for Sunday’s crucial game with LFC. 

You wouldn’t blame Ole for taking a slight risk on their fitness. If it’s possible to gain any more popularity with united fans, then it will be to help keep that lot on 18 titles.

Published financials show a loss of ~$37mm last year ;) 

And this year's financials will take a $25 mm hit from firing José :D

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-02-14/jose-mourinho-s-ouster-to-cost-manchester-united-25-million

Manchester United Plc said it cost the soccer club 19.6 million pounds ($25.1 million) to remove former coach Jose Mourinho and some of his staff last year.

The sum, revealed in the Premier League club’s second-quarter earnings report, is more than double the 8.4 million pounds it cost to remove his predecessor, Louis van Gaal, and members of the Dutch man’s coaching staff in 2016.
