MUST win huge 60% discount for United u18 youth tickets at Arsenal(A)

03 09 2015

Last season M.U.S.T. CEO Duncan Drasdo, with the assistance of the Arsenal Supporters Trust, contacted the Arsenal Supporter Liaison Officer (SLO) to argue that u18s in the away section at The Emirates should receive the same discount as those in the home section. At that time 16-17 year old MUFC supporters in the away section were being charged the full adult price of £63 (before MUFC £4 subsidy).

Fair play to Arsenal they agreed with our argument and this season we see 16-17 year old MUFC supporters receiving tickets at £22.25 which is a saving of £36.75 on the adult price. M.U.S.T. would like to thank to Arsenal Supporters Trust for their co-operation.

Guest blog: A fiasco, yes. But United’s transfer window was far worse than that

01 09 2015

The first of a new guest blog feature United Season Ticket Holder Chris Rumfitt gives his take on the transfer window activity at MUFC. Note the views expressed are those of the author and not neccessarily M.U.S.T.

Fiasco. That's one word for Manchester United's summer transfer window. Shambles. That's another one.

But what if the real story is worse than that? Whilst at times they've embarrassed themselves in the execution of it, the reality is that the Glazers have executed a planned and dramatic reduction in the club's wage bill.

Van Persie, Falcao, di Maria, Nani, Hernandez, Rafael, Cleverley, Evans. Conservatively, getting rid of these eight alone has probably saved the club £60m a year. And of the new players, only Schweinsteiger will have commanded a salary in any way comparable to some of the star departures. One of the attractions of the likes of Schneiderlin, Depay and Martial over, say, Vidal or Pedro, is that as well as having resale value because of their age, they will also be on a fraction of the wages.

 

Anthony Martial

 

With every analysis of successful football performance showing that total wage bill (not total transfer spend) is the best predictor of success on the field, this transfer window has been a disaster for those of us who hoped and believed that last year's improvement would be a springboard for a title challenge this time round. It's almost as if the Glazers saw 4th place as enough, and last summer's spending as an anomaly. Now they want to go back to taking money out the club, not putting it in.

So, yes, the execution of the last few days has been a shambles. And it's easy to ask questions of both Van Gaal and Woodward. But the real scandal is another summer of under-investment in the team. And if you want to point the finger of blame for that, you want to point it towards Florida.

And none of this even mentions David de Gea. A case study in mismanagement that deserves a blog all of its own...
