The Man Utd Thread


Recommended Posts

Those numbers, to paste whenever you're dealing with this nonsense online.

 

 

£790million – the amount it cost the Glazer family to acquire a controlling stake in United in 2005.

 

£550million – the total debt immediately loaded on to the club as a result of the Glazers’ takeover. This was made up of £275million of  ‘payment in kind’ hedge fund loans at an initial 14.25% interest rate, and £265million of bank loans.

 

£3.05billion – the club’s current valuation, according to Forbes. Barcelona (£3.5billion), Real Madrid (£3.4billion) and Bayern Munich (33.06billion) are valued higher.

 

£526million – United remain in debt to the tune of over half a billion pounds, 16 years after the takeover. In the Premier League, only Tottenham have larger debts but at least they have a new stadium to show for it. At Old Trafford, the roof is leaking. Before the Glazers, United had no debts.

 

£5.9billion – the revenue generated by United in the 15 years up to 2020 under the Glazers’ ownership

 

£5.4billion – the club’s expenses during the same period, which includes £2.9billion spent on player wages and £1billion on player amortisation.

 

£467million – total operating profit in 15 years since 2005.

 

£817million – the total amount paid in interest over the 15-year period up to 2020 to service debts, an average of £54million (or one Fred) per season.

 

£1.005billion – the net spend on players under the Glazers to 2020. United spent £1.4billion on new arrivals; they made £400million from player sales.

 

£1.073billion – the total amount spent to finance the Glazers’ ownership in the form of interest payments (£704million), debt repayments (£244million) and dividends (£125million)

 

£496million – the amount spent on interest payments between 2010 and 2020, more than all the other Premier League clubs combined. United’s total is £356million more than the second-highest amount (Arsenal, £140million)

 

16 per cent – the share of United’s £6.8billion expenditure spent on financing the debts.

 

£185million – the amount spent on club infrastructure at Old Trafford and Carrington. Five Premier League clubs, including Brighton, have spent more in the last 10 years.

 

£22.2million – the average dividend paid per year over the five years from 2016 to 2020.

 

£336million – the rise in revenue under the Glazers between 2005 and 2020. But Manchester City (£417million) and Liverpool (£370million) have enjoyed bigger growth in the same period.

 

£94million – the growth in broadcasting revenue, an increase of 204%. But Chelsea (£130million, 247%), Liverpool (£152million, 305%), Manchester City (£166million, 686%)  and Tottenham (£107million, 373%) have all enjoyed larger growth in the same period.

 

£224million – the growth in commercial revenue between 2005 (£55million) and 2020 (£279million). Manchester City have enjoyed the same growth, from £22million to £246million – 1026%

 

£3million – the negligible growth in commercial revenue from 2017 and 2020. Other big six clubs’ commercial growth over the same period: Tottenham – £86million; Liverpool – £80million; Chelsea – £37million; Man City – £28million; Arsenal – £25million.

 

£1.1billion – the gap in revenue between United (£5billion) and the Premier League’s next highest earners, Manchester City (£3.9billion), between 2010 and 2020.

 

£118.1million – the fall in revenue (£509million from £627.1million) up to June 30, 2020.

 

£23.2million – the annual loss made by United up to June 30, 2020.

 

£23million – the amount in dividends paid out to shareholders by United, mainly to the six Glazer siblings (around £18.5million), in the same period.

 

£7billion – according to The Guardian, a valuation of the club the Glazers are keen to achieve in the long-term, more than double its current value. What the f*ck would that look like?

Great save by De Gea!  

 

It's a bit of a weird quirk of the rules that if they had scored it would have been disallowed for handball, but as they didn't, they're allowed to have the corner, from which they should have scored.  The handball rule isn't fit for purpose.

It's utterly daft.

Dzeko's still a great number nine with his back to goal. Must be a right pain in the arse to play against. Reminded of that season he had up top with Grafite at Wolfsburg.

well that was clearly your fault! :P
