Seriously i can sympathise with your veiws, I honestly think the answer is the debt the club is in whatever fergie says is having a detrimental effect on manu, if things don.t improve financially m.u will find it very difficult to (1) buy the top players (2) maintain the salaries that they pay (3) and oviously compete in the market with the likes of man, city , chelsea, and the other top euro sides. Also there is the fergie factor to resolve, if that is possible.! The side is getting older and do you really think that the KIDS coming through are good enough. but the most serious thing is they don,t have a coach on the PITCH. think about the great english sides of recent years, and they all had a leader/coach on the pitch. affraid to say there are big probs at ot and no easy solutions particulary off the pitch. and again despite what fergie says these probs do effect the operation of the club in all respects.
