Quote:
As part of the takeover, the Glazers saddled the club with a large amount of debt. Around £265 million was secured by the club's assets, with the total amount of debt around £660 million.1

This was the first time the club had debt since 1931.11 The loans were provided by large American hedge funds, with interest rates on the debt amounting to approximately £62 million a year.12 A substantial portion of the loans were payment in-kind loans, which the club was paying 16.25% interest on at one point.

I liked the line, 'rebuilding trust' , there has been no trust to rebuild at any time since 2005.

Quite right. Now let's have a couple of verses of Silent Night, then get back in the trenches.

Re: European football clubs agree to create a Super League

Hopefully the fans of 'super clubs' that have no connection to the cities (just like the players/owners), will review their allegiances, and support their local team at whatever level they're at.

Following your local team on an unlikely FA Cup run or a rise through the leagues beats anything the Super/Champions league can offer.

Indeed! Though I suspect 95% of Premiership 'supporters' don't leave the sofa.
