    I'm just saying that tons of people read headlines and don't form their own opinions. I'm not saying those opinions would be different if they weren't spoon-fed to them.

    It's almost the PC thing to do to hate on him. Doesn't bother me, boo him all you like.

    Suarez has brought it all on himself!

    Yeah you shouldn't boo a national anthem apart from the English one.

    Bebe participated and scored in a reserves pre-season game yesterday. He's scored in every game he's played thus far I think. Looks like he might actually be fighting for a spot in the big team.

    As manutdfan said, Suarez has brought this on himself. Numerous incidents throughout his career he has been in the spotlight for negative things, from racial abuse, diving, cheating, biting and persistently yelling at officials.

    These kind of things are going to get him booed, it isn't all to do with the media like Liverpool fans always claim, fans can see for themselves when he starts doing stuff like this. Look at Ashley Young from last season, he got booed for his antics, Suarez does this too and more.

    A lot of the boos he does receive are simply from fans trying to wind him up because it's likely it will get a reaction from him, after a frustrating first half yesterday he started punching the ground and throwing turf, it's hilarious and it's what the fans want from him. It's just like how players try and wind up certain players to get a reaction out of them and see them get in trouble.

    You can blame the media all you want but fans don't need a news article to tell them what this player is like.

    "In regards to suggestions that I have praised the Glazer Family because I stand to financially benefit from the proposed IPO, there is not a single grain of truth in this allegation. I do not receive any payments, directly or indirectly, from the IPO.

    "Ultimately, I run the football side of this club and in order to do this, you need backing from above.

    "I am speaking out because I do not want a situation to develop whereby the media and other parties create a rift, however small, between myself and any Manchester United fan. I've spent 25 years of my life pushing this club forward and not only could I not have done it without those fans, I do it for them."

    Fergie just doesn't get it, United fans do not like to read this - "there is no interference or obstruction, only support." Maybe words of support, but certainly not the money. Someone needs to directly ask him:

    "Have the Glazers' financial difficulties impacted in the transfers coming in to the squad?" There's pretty tangible evidence they have.

    But no one will, because they will get banned. But they should.

    Funny how all the talk is now about the IPO, Glazers & Fergie. What happened to the chatter about players coming in?

    So far this summer is similar to last. The biggest signing United have talked about, is a spangly new sponsorship deal.

    I'm not saying he didn't bring it on himself. I clearly said the opinion would probably be unchanged.

    But $#@! like THIS is unacceptable from the media and doesn't help at all.

    I don't get why so many people are wanting or expecting Sir Alex to speak negatively about the Glazers, they're his boss, you do that you get sacked. The last thing we need going into a new season is a row between Sir Alex and the Glazers.

    He's getting the support he wants which is money. £50m last season and £25m this season thus far testifies to that.

    People think we don't have money just because we won't pay astronomical fees and wages. But that doesn't mean we couldn't, it just means we won't. I happen to agree that the money clubs like Chelsea, City and PSG are throwing around is stupid money and it'll come back to bite them.

    Did I click the right link? I saw the guardian saying that Suarez was accused of using racist language.

    its a side by side of guardian reporting Terry and Suarez FA charges. The body of the text is EXACTLY the same. The headline for Suarez: charged with racism. For Terry: charged with abusive language.

    I would say Kagawa was a really big signing. Some fans seems to think we we're the only one in for him - that wasn't the case. Getting Kagawa was a big accomplishment.

    It's hard to argue that the transfer policy of Chelsea and City is healthy long-term. It is easy to see their signings over the years as good value short term but taking a broader perspective that's not the type of deals you'd want your club to make to survive long-term.

    Well there used to be a Ignore feature. But as a mod I can't ignore people so I don't know where it is or how to do it! Maybe someone else can tell you.

    Inter edge closer to Moura. Apparently a fee has been agreed.

    I think he is a great signing, but from the outside it looks like he only wanted to join United. So hardly a big accomplishment, same goes for Powell too. I'm just pleased the two players signed so far chose to join the club. After the Hazard nonsene, footballers had begun to turn my stomach even more than usual.

    As the squad stands I think they'll win the PL, but are they any closer in Europe?

    One thing that sticks out in the Fergie statement,

    "My decisions and beliefs are not based around what is best for my personal financial gain.

    "That is an accusation that insults me. If that was the case I would have left Old Trafford a long time ago.
    In that little part, even he himself thinks United do not pay him enough.

    Funny how the Glazers seem to be the highest paid players at the club, for doing diddly squat.

    Big signing? Your kidding me right. he was blatantly our 2nd and cheaper option. Defo not big accomplishment in my eyes.

    With the players that chelski are signing, they are all young, so cant really say they are a short term option. i wouldve loved some of their signings.

    granted we are TRYING to get more players in, but i bet will start away at everton with the team with have now......

    @bewaresuckers Are you serious? Dc89 and three-three times constantly ignore your rule breaking in this thread. (Quite a few posts bad enough they were deleted) He's been on this thread for ages and no one is going to block him except you.

    DC brings something to this thread but everytime I see you all I see are insults towards other members... I can't remember what you ever posted here that was constructive in any way.

    Stop being so serious and insulting. I'm surprised DC or three three times haven't done anything about your posts.

    I'm at work just checking in! 33X has done what was needed, how many chances is the guy going to need?

    Yeah, sometimes I go over the top with the anti-United stuff. But most of the time I back up what I am saying with an opinion and if you can't handle it you might just need to take a look at yourself.
