Money can’t buy me love.

America’s Next Top Model cycle 10

Being a united fan can be likened to being in a high maintainence(?) relationship. The club spits out merchandise as frequent as.. wait for it.. Becks™ changes hairstyles! ed – I know its not 2003, the jokes not funny anymore. Not that it ever was.

Well those of you in the know would have already known that a new kit was due as last season’s jersey, also known as the how-do-you-like-them-apples-Jose kit, was released to mark the 50 year anniversary of the Busby Babes competing in Europe. Bla bla bla.. its all just smoke and mirrors.

In July 2006 the debt the club announced a refinancing package. Previously the debt taken on by the Glazers to financing the club was split between the club and the family, but now it will all be in the club. The total amount will be £660 million, on which interest payments will be £62 million a year.

Is it starting to make sense? With television revenue, sponsorships and match day tickets aside, the only other source of income would logically come from out of the pockets of their own fans. New kit every season, new training gear every 6 months, new pajamas every other day, the next logical step would be to slap double digit team numbers on their star players to ensure the fans buy all this new crap. Bastards.
