Just wondering how the die-hard Man U fans (are you out there, Tim?) felt about the takeover.

Here's a pictorial taster of how some of them (and other interested parties) feel:

Heck yes, and as a non man U person (excepting this weekend against scumpton), i hope it all goes horribly wrong

Never heard of the man - not much of a football fan - I'm from Manchester so if push came to shove, I'd be a MU fan - I was curious. This is what The Sunday Times - Comment has to say:

Not since Sir Alex Ferguson kicked a football boot at David Beckham’s head and drew blood has there been such anger at Old Trafford. ...


Not only has Florida tycoon Glazer never set foot in Old Trafford, he is not one of Manchester United’s 3.29m worldwide supporters and is not known ever to have watched a match on television. What he is, however, is a shrewd operator and, according to his sisters, a nasty piece of work. ...


As the diehard fans — many of them small shareholders who worked hard to stop the takeover — burnt their season-ticket renewal forms and Glazer effigies outside the stadium this weekend, the mood was apocalyptic. ...


In a court hearing over his approach for Harley, a US judge branded him a “snake in sheep’s clothing”. ...


Some residents won a court case against Glazer for charging them extra to keep pets and even having babies. ...


As ever at Manchester United, the seeker after truth needs to revert to the poetical soul of their former star Eric Cantona: “When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea.” ...


Some sardines! Just as long as the trawlermen don’t all jump ship.


So I'll go with the flow. Must phone my dad and give him a bit of moral support - he'll be devasted.

See ya! :D
