United’s Glazers are way over their heads in debt and this is causing United’s ability to buy the really good players. This is what the press is reporting and recent United transfer activities suggest there may be some truth to this. CR has gone for over a season and we haven’t really got anyone of comparable quality to replace him. Sure, Nani has on many occasions stepped up but he is no where near the level of CR in 2007, 2008 and 2009. Those were devastating years for CR, or rather, for our opponents. Maybe it is just the World Cup, and we’d be on to some really serious transfer activities once this minor distraction is over.
