M.U.S.T. full members' certificates - the last 10 years
MUST is the independent Manchester United supporters trust. We are dedicated to securing meaningful permanent ownership of MUFC for supporters.
We're finalising designs for the M.U.S.T. full members' badge. We'd appreciate hearing your preferred design (please state one number from 1 - 8) using the comments section at the bottom of this post.
(For info we tend to recognise long serving players in the members' certificate and more often it is a current popular player featured in the badges)
In response to press enquiries regarding the fixture rearrangements for TV a spokesman for M.U.S.T. - the Manchester United Supporters' Trust said:
"Unfortunately fixture rearrangements are an inevitable consequence of the TV deal but the tail should not be allowed to wag the dog. The problem is football clubs in England, unlike the top clubs in Germany and Spain, no longer have any regulations which distinguish them from any ordinary company so pursuit of profit for the owners takes precedence over fans and indeed everything else."
"Given the huge increase in TV revenue which directly results in these fixture rearrangements causing inconvenience to fans, the very least Premier League clubs should agree to is to cap the price of away tickets at £20 as proposed by The FSF Twenty's Plenty campaign which is supported by M.U.S.T. along with fan groups throughout the Premier League. Home ticket pricing also needs to be looked at as there are fans at all PL clubs who travel considerable distances for home games too."
"Additionally greater effort should be made to avoid rearranging fixtures for long trips to away games at times when travel is difficult such as Bank Holidays, Sundays and weekday evenings. In the cases where this is unavoidable it would seem reasonable for the PL clubs to fund special trains to minimise inconvenience and expense for their most loyal supporters"
This is incomplete but it beautifully illustrates how Manchester United were undisputed no.1 in global football financial league prior to Glazer takeover. We'd held this position of supremacy from the very beginning of the compilation of the Deloitte Football Money League reports - perhaps 8 or 9 years.
Under the Glazers we dropped as low as 4th and only now, after almost a decade of Glazer induced austerity, are we back to 2nd and poised to reclaim our rightful position back at the top.
Not such a stunning record after all when compared with our rivals and considering where we started from and with by far the biggest global fan base ...
