it is promising and the way he talks about being confident about being able to raise the funds in an instant is definitely a good sign. thing is, though, where were they when the club was initially being bought? why weren't they interested then? no matter what happens, it would have been cheaper to buy the club then, with or without loans.

long way to go on this yet.

He wants to weaken the club financially so that they can make a bid. Im all for a bid really, but at that cost? nope.

More of compel the Glazers to sell by telling supporters to boycott match days and appealing to season ticket holders not to renew. It's at a very nascent stage but the plan if the Glazers refuse is initially with 1bn quid is to take a few steps back before taking many steps forward.

I understand that, but there's a fair risk that their wont be any step forwards oncoming. Thats where the huge risk lies.

The idea is if the Glazers don't make money then they may as well make that exit and take what they're getting from the Red Knights. If stands are empty then I doubt they could just turn their back on it with the sort of damage it could do not only to our performances on the pitch but off it too, as it is this season has seen more empty seats than normal. Realistically if they get an offer of 1-1.2bn I don't think it makes sense for them to refuse. The RedCafe too got a mention in the Guardian today BTW. :)

Article from ESPN's Soccernet:

A group of well-connected Manchester United supporters have played the first hand of their attempts to wrest control of the club from the unpopular Glazer family's regime. The American owners have been moved to issue an instant rebuttal by again declaring they have no interest in selling the club.

Reports from Sky News and the Times suggest talks have been held on London's Fleet Street between a group of leading City of London figures, the so-called "Red Knights". Keith Harris, of Seymour Pierce, football takeover experts, has joined with Jim O'Neill, chief economist at Goldman Sachs.

Both Harris and O'Neill have expressed dissent against the American family's financial model, which has seen a club that was debt-free and profitable in 2005, the year of the Glazer takeover, plummet to debts of around

The Glazers won't sell unless it is a mega, mega, mega offer from these Red Knights or this Green and Gold campaign really takes off and money into the club starts to dwindle but while there is decent money coming into the club they won't sell even if they are absolutely detested. Hopefully these guys can put together a monster package that the Glazers simply can't refuse.

I pass and I move, I help you, I look for you, I stop, I raise my head, I look and, above all, I open up the pitch…That’s the school of Vila, of Benaiges, of Cruijff – Xavi Hernandez

A couple of quick comments here:

- Its true that boycotting games and not rennewing season tickets would really hurt the glazers, with matchday revenue at 40% of our total revenue, more than commercialising or broadcast money. But it would hurt the club to, and thats what scares me a little bit.

- Its not true that he never sells his assests, in the 80's he was known as a green mailer. The reason he said the opposite was probably to try and change that reputation that he had.

Sorry to burst your little green and gold bubble, but how are a group of 50 businessmen ever going to be able to agree on anything concerning football matters, and Why would the Glazers sell United when they are using it as a nice little interest free loan service to finance their other business ventures ?

Football matters would obviously be decided by football people, do you think the Glazers have any input in matters now? That's where Gill comes in. He's the link between. If Barcelona can do it, we can.
