Man Utd = the original 'business' football club. The Edwards family, the embarrassment of Knighton, the dalliance with Murdoch, the rise of Magnier, then fights over a horse, the sale to Glazers. Suddenly, then, conversion from the biggest spenders to a more moderate profile. Only then.
But if it is buying the league that you want, then your colour is red. It always has been.
