I'd also mentioned it at the end of last season and wondered if they were gonna try and do it on the cheap.
And, fuck me, they have far exceeded my best estimate. I thought they'd try and look at the cheaper youth angle to deceive their hordes but to then have a fire sale of such degree, selling or loaning out so many players without replacement has made my fucking season. They have trimmed down so much that they could fail to function as a PL football team. I asked my lad which players were going to get them 20+ goals and he said they'd be lucky to get in double figures. I also asked where was their quality from the bench and he just shrugged and said 'That useless idiot', referring to Lingard.
The Rags are in deep trouble and what I'm trying to figure out is if the money saving exercise is due to being out of the CL and losing money through sponsorship deals, creating problems with FFP and/or servicing their debt, or is it down to the Glazers wanting to milk the club dry?
Does anybody feel sorry for their predicament or have they reaped what they've sown?
I’m only sorry those fucks haven’t yet gone the same way as Bolton and Bury. The Glazers must wake up each morning, check their bank balance and just piss themselves that they have got away with it for so long. In regards to the lack of CL for the foreseeable future, Gill will no doubt pull a few strings and before you know it the CL will have 64 clubs and guaranteed acceptance for previous winners
