    While not disrupting the debate, I will add that I agree with smartalex. It is not only about the money. United are already a global brand and will rake in the money whether we do the tours are not. But providing the fans with entertainment and a chance to see these players live is another reasons. Also, it gives the players a chance to see just how much they are loved and idolized even outside Manchester. Many of our players themselves said so on our last tour to Japan (I think). So, yeah, I agree that it is not all about the money.

    I also think Goat’s posts are like those A-rated comedies (The Hangover II comes to mind). If you are too sensitive, you might be grossed out by them. If you can handle it, it doesn’t get funnier than that.

    Also, we should keep the debates in good health. It is had enough that we have to battle the constant trolls from other blogs who have nothing better to do than be obsessed about United. We shouldn’t start fighting amongst ourselves not matter how much the opinion might be divided.

    I thought going on tour is what all the major ‘brands’ do. Doesn’t matter if it’s U2 or WWE, ya can’t be ‘global’ if you only play Skegness. Jus’ sayin’…

    touring and worldwide recognition goes hand in hand with being a top club simple as that.
    off topic udinese want 50million euros for sanchez,the only way to stop the greed and madness is for the clubs to tell udinese to go fuck themsevles problem is clubs like city,rentboys and real will always pay.

    Tours are simply advertising,spread the brand all successful major outfits do that, take the show to your customers. Reap the reward.No different from FIFA taking the World Cup all over the planet.

I will make it this coming year but most likely in the spring for $ reasons I want to see 2 games at old Trafford and a road game as well and make it a 3 week trip and I’m second generation Irish and Italian and want to go meet some cousins in Ireland as well and drink till I drop.
