That is literally the only way this is heading bud. Things are not going to suddenly get better and in fact I think things are going to get worse. I don't think Ole is the man long term but until we change things at the very top not a lot will change.I am honest I only see things changing with mediocrity or worse. A club that stops making big bucks that the glazers no longer want.
Does that include ticket prices?Matchday revenue isn't the massive thing it was in 2009. But it's still a massive chunk of the pie.
We operate and manage our business as a single reporting segment – the operation of a professional sports team. We review our revenue through three principal sectors – Commercial, Broadcasting and Matchday.ir.manutd.com
I agree I'll never put pressure on someone to not go to the game that is every person's own choice to make fans it actually annoys me that people try and criticise those who want to go to watch the game.It's hard to make people who have already paid for there tickets not going to a game. Last night would have been a decent opportunity. Cold, foggy night. Late kick of mid week. On TV. Playing in front of 20,000 fans would have made people sit up and take notice. In the meantime people need to stop spending money in the stadium. Pies, programs, beer, I am guessing that comes to a decent amount of money. You could try not buying from the shop but I suspect the majority are tourists
I don't think he was a safe option at all for the reasons you said the fans will come for everyone before they come for Ole because he's a hero to us fingers wont point at him first like they do with other managers.The odd thing is the very thing the owners have done to safeguard themselves could easily backfire. When they appointed solskjaer I think in their heads it was a safe option. Wouldn't rock the boat. Would get support from ex players and fans alike. Now it is not going so well instead of turning on the manager I think people are questioning the hierarchy instead
