I came home from work this evening to learn the hilarious news that American business tycoon Malcolm Glazer now owns a massive stake in Manchester United. He only needs a few more percentage of shares to take full control of the whole club and at the moment it looks like he will achieve this.

“Shall we sell, shall we sell, shall we sell a share to you?”

Man Utd fans strongly oppose a takeover my Malcolm Glazer as he will be borrow hundred of millions of pounds to make the purchase, therefore instantly plunging the club into immense debt. The debt will be so great it will make Leeds United’s previous financial woes look like a small credit card bill.

The other concern of supporters is that Glazer (like most Man Utd fans) has never been to watch a game live and lives miles away from Manchester. They have also questioned his motives and how he will recover the debts – most definitely though charging the fans more money for tickets, merchandise and shirts.

A far greater fear for the fans is that the debt will never will be recovered and the club will be plunged into financial meltdown.

What a shame…

I know I have mocked other clubs in the past for losing games and their off the field problems but I would not wish what Leeds United had to go through upon anybody… except Manchester United.

Every Scum fan I know has mocked Leeds, even the official Man Utd website displayed an image of a wiltering white rose when Leeds were relegated. This time it certainly proves “what goes around comes around”.

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
