Manchester United fans have had enough of Ed Woodward and the Glazers

Manchester United are in a mess and the responsibility lies foremost with Ed Woodward and the Glazers.

Years of desultory recruitment, fatuous spending and board negligence have left the club in the worst state it has been in my lifetime.

This huge rebuild that is talked about so often by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a necessity because of so many bad decisions that have been made at the top.

With just a week to go of this month’s transfer window remaining, we are no closer to finding out whether the United manager will be backed in order to bolster a completely depleted squad.

We acknowledge that the Glazers have spent money since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013, but if you look at the side taking to the field against Burnley on Wednesday night you’d be forgiven for wondering where on earth the investment has gone.

In the moment United need serious investment the most, we are seeing the Glazers’ penny-pinching over deals Solskjaer desperately requires.

It was obvious the club needed midfield and attacking reinforcements in the summer but we have reached the final week in January and still no replacements have been brought in for Ander Herrera and Romelu Lukaku.

United failed to tie Herrera down to a contract, instead letting a player go on a Bosman that could have been worth a significant amount.

And now United are seemingly unwilling to pay the extra £10m Sporting Lisbon desire for Portugal international Bruno Fernandes, a player that would actually improve the side considerably.

So far, in three transfer windows, United have made three signings under Solskjaer.

Enough is enough.

This thread, by our editor Dale O’Donnell, perfectly sums up the reasons for United’s malaise.
