Dear Mr. Glazer,
Like most Manchester United supporters, I felt an enormous sense of pride in the club at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The way the club conducted itself was a perfect example of how to behave. Sadly, Mr. Glazer many of your actions, or inactions, since have eroded that pride. Like most of my peers I took the time to read your open letter to us. But, Sir, actions speak louder than words and we have had empty promises before. So this is my open letter to you.
If ever there was a time to show us you mean what you say then that time is now. Ole and the players have delivered a memorable season. One quarter final, one semi final, the possibility of a trophy and a second placed finish. After the debacle surrounding the European Super League, your neglect of the ground and training facilities, now is the moment to prove you are a man of your word.
Investment in the squad is one thing, wise investment is another. We can all see the glaring holes in the squad and these have existed for a number of years. If you meant what you said and you want this club to be back at the top, the time to fix them is now. I’m sure Ole and his staff have given you his targets, do the right thing by him and by us and deliver them to him.
We know the club has been hit by COVID like the rest of the world, but we also know the club is still amongst the richest in the world, it’s time to show it. Give Ole the resources he needs to succeed. If you are truly serious about returning the club its previous heights then don’t just say it, show it.
