Why did Manchester United fail in the transfer market?

Ed Woodward was a banker at JP Morgan. He helped the Glazers in their unethical takeover of Manchester United. His prize is now to be the top executive at the club. Sorry, company.

Woodward failed David Moyes in the transfer market. He ruined good relationships with many clubs. He treated players with disrespect. He failed the fans. Sorry – the club’s cash source.

It’s understandable, Woodward comes from an industry that pays itself great amounts of money for failures.
