US bid talk lifts Man Utd shares


Manchester United shares have risen sharply amid speculation that US sports tycoon Malcolm Glazer is about to mount a takeover bid for the club.
The shares jumped 5% on Friday, giving the club a stock market value of £743m.

The Financial Times earlier reported that Mr Glazer had instructed Commerzbank to explore a takeover bid.

The move comes a day after Mr Glazer raised his stake in the club to 16.31%, and after Irish tycoons John Magnier and JP McManus lifted theirs to 28.89%
Don't care how much money you have, you're still Mankies. :twisted:

Good luck on Sunday, to the Mighty Cockney Heroes (Like we need it)
R U bored PTP? You've copied more stuff from the BBC today then the BBC has on their website.

The majority of Man Utd fans are not 'Mankies' (?). The true 'Manc' club is Manchester City, which boasts a proper Manchester fan base following. It is well known in Manchester that Man U fans are made of up of a high percentage of gay southern men who come to Manchester and watch a team made up of highly expensive, highly paid fairies and poofs.

Edited for my spelling misteaks.
Gunny are you a city supporter by any chance
No Stoke Newton FC.
:?: :?: :?: :?:

who are they? And dont say the footie team from stroke newton :)

Ill get my coat :oops: :oops:
Not Bored GH ,

Just trying to find a greater variety of News stories to post on, and trying to find out what the Punters want. There will be more sports, especially after the Mighty Cockney heroes bury the mafia Boys mercenaries on Sunday

dont most of Man Utds fans come from exeter?
Good Luck with the whole Malcolm Glazer thing...pretty soon he will want a new stadium, tax exemption and be setting up trailer parks for all the pikeys...all the while threating that he'll move the team if he don't get his way 8O

He did it in my town here in Tampa when he took over ownership of the Buccaneers :D

Some, but not all. Majority closet Londoners, sprinklering of Essex and some towards Yorkshire. Gay contingent from all over UK and Europe.

Convoy, not a Utd fan shirley?

PTP, up yours.



Yes mate,

I grew up in Moss Side but Irish catholic parentage meant that it was a toss up between supporting the reds or living in the back garden. :)

As for the out of town malarkey, my mate based part of his uni thesis on it and came up with some interesting statistics. City and United have the same percentage of season tickets owned by people without the M postcode.

Anyway, got me ticket and will be there tomorrow, doing my best "Shameless" impression.

As for you PTP, get your regional colloquialisms right, what the fcuk is a "Mankie"?, a handkerchief for men?

Urban myth. Not true.[/quote]

It is so true, every phone on Radio 5 or Sky Sports the Mancs are from Milton Keynes or Brighton or Cardiff.
Some Prawn Fan sites from round the world

The Icelandic Man United site (FFS)

The official Chinese Man Utd site - How many Chinese are there who are soccer mad and regard the colour Red as lucky again?

Yep, the Septics have a site too

Manchester United Uber Alles

Would you like a liddle schmoke with that?
Herring bashers a go-go

So , far from an urban myth methinks :D


Probably better off in the NAAFI bar this one.

I've just walked back from the game and I can only speak for myself.

Most of the people who sit round me are from Manchester.

But you obviously know better.

As for you Qman your opinion simply does not count, as you are a fat Scouser.
Is that true Qman....are you a tubby shoplifting scouse git?
Convoy, if your talking about actual seats on bums at the Theatre of Prawns, then you're probably right.

But as regards "Worldwide" support? Manchester United wins hands down. It is the club of choice for Foreigners.
