MUST statement: Manchester United reach rock bottom under Glazer ownership

Manchester United Supporters’ Trust (MUST) has released a statement following the club’s humiliating start to the season.

Erik ten Hag’s tenure has got off to a terrible start, with United losing their first two games of the season – 2-1 to Brighton & Hove Albion and 4-0 to Brentford.

MUST, like all United fans, want further action in the transfer market but it doesn’t stop there after 17 years of pain since the Glazer takeover.

They urged United supporters to stick together ahead of more protests.

Manchester United reach rock bottom

The statement read: “We don’t usually comment on on-field matters, but felt that we should make an exception on this occasion. After the disaster-zone of last season, and the tumbleweed of the transfer window (so far!), hopes were not exactly high entering into this term. But we don’t think many people expected things to be quite so humiliatingly bad as they were on Saturday evening.

“As we’ve always said, a fish rots from the head. And the ultimate responsibility for the terrible state of our football club must lie with its owners, the Glazer family. It is now for them to explain to United fans just why we are in this state, and what they are going to do about it. We’ve had some difficult times in the last decade, but this really does feel like rock bottom.

“MUST hold the owners of the Club primarily responsible for this new low in our decade of decline. Sir Alex papered over the cracks, but since 2013 the consequences of our owners have been plain to see.

“On behalf of Manchester United fans everywhere, we demand urgent and radical change. And we as fans – all of us – need to stick together. Fans unity, with one voice aimed at the owners and the club, is needed more than ever right now.”

We echo the sentiments of this statement.
