An indifferent week at Old Trafford in terms of results has all been overshadowed as the media and United supporters continue to comment on the financial state of the football club and the potential repercussions of this Bond Scheme. The Glazers have been successful in raising the required amount, which gives them breathing space and hopefully frees up transfer funds for Sir Alex Ferguson in the process, either way though it promises to be another hostile atmosphere at Old Trafford this afternoon, although come 5pm I’m sure most will come away from the game delighted as the expected 3pts will see United return to the top of the Premier League table.
This week at FFC has seen an array of United Blogs which has seen more grumblings about the Glazers, whether Mike Phelan is an adequate No.2 for Sir Alex and a dilemma of what Fergie should do with regards to Owen Hargreaves.
We have also picked out some best of the Web snippets to provide you with some alternate reading this Saturday afternoon.
