As we all know the renewal date for season-tickets was last week. There has been no news from United (natch) on what the renewal or cancellation figures might look like. However, information passed to us from some-one close to where that information might be held has let on that the numbers declining to renew is massive. That is obviously to be expected given in a week they lost one of the best coaches in the world and flogged Ayoze Perez to Leicester (Leicester FFS!) for 30 Millions.

We have heard the numbers failing to renew described within United as “massively significant“.

For those campaigning for a boycott of the Arsenal game, as things currently stand, they are pushing at an open door as fans are already voting with their feet. There are others on long-term deals who doubtless are waiting for confirmation of the takeover falling apart before cancelling Season Tickets as well. It would appear, Rafa’s departure is a fuck-up too many for many thousands of supporters. They were told.

It is  a measure of how dysfunctional our club is that this news might be welcomed by thousands who love the club and are desperate to see Ashley sell up and do one.
