It has been reported that United will play a friendly match in the middle of the Premier League season! Not only is this a ridiculous idea, the thing that really annoys me is the fact that they will play this in the Middle East. Once again it looks like another opportunity for the Glazer’s to fill their pockets!
Not only are United struggling on all fronts this season. Losing to MK Dons in the Capital One Cup and getting a good hiding by nearly every opponent away from home this season. United have been the laughing-stock of English football once again. Things like this are the icing on the cake and I can’t believe the mentality of the owners.
This is a very risky game that the owners are playing and surely if United get beat during that period when the friendly happens, the United fans will not be happy!
As a United fan I haven’t seen anything like this in the past. Maybe this is the way that football is going now. It is a crying shame and the noise of the old 50,000 crowd at Old Trafford seems a distance memory and one in which I crave to get back as a United fan.
One can only hope that this game does not go ahead!
