Coincidence ......

 

 

Manchester United have announced their debt has risen close to £430 million in their latest financial figures. The Premier League club's third quarter results revealed net debt has increased by £127.4m to £429.1m as football across Europe comes to terms with the coronavirus pandemic.

I said many years ago that the clubs Name, colours and badge should be trade marked or summat, so when the likes of Man Utd separate from the Prem league, they would have to pay us! to be on TV, phone, Tablet?.

As much as we chuckle, I don’t think it effects the pecking order. Their financial team / owners will makes some adjustments and they will carry on as before. 
Maybe Covid will force clubs to pay lower wages for years, but it won’t level the playing field.

 

Add to which,  they’re no longer the big fish (I know, your heart bleeds).

I've always said football is completely unsustainable and so it proves.

If a club like Man Utd can not support itself through times like this then football really needs to take a long hard look at itself.

On the Football Manager thing on it own - that could get pretty messy if other clubs follow Man United's lead (and you can guarantee they will)

Juventus are called Zebre on it due to licensing issues. 

 

Man United be called The Devils or something.

Think they might wait until the outcome of the case first. Don't football manager have to licence the rights like games such as FIFA and PES have to?

 

Interesting that Man Utd have just discover this with Football Manager having been on the go for many years......

Yeah exactly it's mad isn't it?

How could Football Manager possibly be published without all the licences and permissions beforehand?

Not at all. I concur.

The most apt response for this could be if Football Manager, FIFA, the BBC Website, international newspapers, etc. all lost permission to use the term Manchester United.

 

Hence a load of substitutes like 'Manchester Reds', 'Melchester Rovers', 'Mancunian Devils', 'Mr Potato Noodles FC' being employed.

 

And Manchester United's share price falling off a cliff, as seeing as they no longer play in the Champions League, and the resulting confusion in Asia over the actual name of the team meaning all their die-hard fans over there forgetting the name of the team that they all support so passionately, until their 'brand awareness' dwindles to a few die hard fanatics in Surrey.

Manchester United must’ve been watching how the EU operates.

 

Sueing Football Manager to put money back in their budget FFS (Fernando Forestieri’s sister).
