Ben Foster, who has just made a £6m move to Birmingham and whose transfer fee will not be spent to buy a replacement, has told the fans to stop getting too involved with protesting about our owners, who have made the club with the biggest revenue in the world to a club with the most debt in the world.

Sir Alex Ferguson has today claimed that he likes to see our protests but for some reason Foster has opted to get involved and take the opposite stance.

“There’s maybe too much made of it by the supporters,” Foster said. “They are obviously passionate about Manchester United, but sometimes they need to focus on supporting the club a bit more than getting carried away with the technicalities of who’s in charge. Personally, I think the Glazers have always put money in to Manchester United to buy players when needed. Having said that, I don’t think the manager needs to buy too many players there anyway. They have a lot of good youngsters coming through the ranks.”

How do I put this nicely? Shut the fuck up Ben and concentrate on finishing in the top half eh? And we’ll concentrate on trying to stop our club being swallowed by a black hole of debt.
