We are done out here

Stop going to games and supporting this rubbish. It's the only way to send a message.

I'm tired of humbling my expectations. Anyone with sense knows you get what you think you deserve in life.

This isn't about supporting the team through a rough patch of form, this is some serious stuff and it requires serious action. I'm tired of the moaning. Actions speak louder than words.

I'd say mass pitch invasions , sit down protests in front of the entrances , disrupting games with paper aeroplanes , shutting down Manchester united media with an anti Glazer message.. I'm joking of course, God knows when the Glazers will have enough of us

United claim to have around 600million supporters around the World. Mostly who don't regularly go or have never even been to a game and yet still support the current rubbish, apparently

There are also have 70K supporters who do go to games regular who also support the current rubbish.

Do these match going 99% of supporters really hold so much power over the club that if they didn't go for one game or even part of one game (most been ST holders who occupy the same seat every week) the owners would have no option to sell up and/or sack their Chief Exec?

The only ones who can hurt the owners are the match going fans and those that but merchandise, and they aren't about to stop going to games or buying merchandise, because they support the club through thick and thin.

That’s not true though, is it? There are many examples of match going fans staying away and attendances falling when a team isn’t performing on the pitch.

I would imagine the average ticket at OT is £50.

Lets assume, half the fans stay away meaning matchday attendances around the 35,000 mark.

They'll be losing about £2m every home game and with about 7 home matches left, that's £14m down on expected trajectory.

But like I said earlier, the stakeholders and sponsors won't like to be associated with a club where its fans are staying at home. It looks bad and they'll put huge pressure on the Board.

The problem you face is convincing your fans to get on board.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The mean average is a bit over £40, just for the record.

That's a sensible question and I would say that yes, they do have more power because they have the ability to make a political statement.

The scenes of fans leaving at the 84th minute was a significant talking point for pundits and journalists in the mainstream media. Imagine those scenes from not until the end of the season?

There is of course a financial impact but it's more about sending a warning shot, to the ownership that we are not going to put up with it forever.

How many have resulted in the clubs sale?

I agree. Until we get a management team of klopp, poch, ole, hitzfield, lippi and saf, and are bought by the US government treasury, we should stay clear.

You've got a fair bit of thought into this haven't you...

On a brighter note, we could put West Ham down on our last home game of the season......small victories
----------------------------------------------------------------------

At least we’ll take them with us
----------------------------------------------------------------------
We are probably the best they could have if they need 3 pts to stay in the league

In our last few games against West Ham we have somehow managed to make Mark Noble look like Roy Keane.

For some reason we play like a bunch of pansies against West Ham.

Wait? you expect people to give up their hobby, one of the only things i imagine that brings them a bit of joy when the majority will spend the week slogging away doing something they dont particuarly like or enjoy in the form of a job?

thats ridiculous, and will never happen.
