What is Manchester United doing wrong? The Glazers are the beginning and the end.

Man Utd are on the verge of their now common crisis, and there are several issues preventing the team from making the proper decisions.

It has seemed for more than ten years that Manchester United can never have a season go by without setting some sort of unfavorable record or standard, and this year has been no different.

In the previous year, United had fallen to the bottom of the league for the first time in thirty years, and Erik ten Hag had become the first manager since John Chapman in 1921 to lose his first two matches in charge. However, things suddenly began to go nicely. Incredibly well. At Wembley, a first trophy in six years was won, and a third-place league result ensured a return to the Champions League.

But if there’s one thing we’ve learned since 2013, it’s that good things rarely last for very long. For the first time in the Premier League era, United suffered three losses in its first five games of this season after appearing to be well-positioned to advance.

So where are the issues? There are two options available. Some of these are urgent matters, such the circumstances surrounding Antony and Jadon Sancho and the tactical difficulties Ten Hag is experiencing in his second tenure.

Then there are the persistent issues that have limited this team since 2013 as well. or, more precisely, since 2005. Ten Hag won’t necessarily alleviate his immediate suffering; there will still be problems that force him to carry his arm behind his back for the time being.


The phrase “a fish rots from the head down” surely applies to the current Manchester United. It’s simple for supporters of rival teams and radio rent-a-gobs to blame United’s absentee landlords by citing the club’s transfer outlay, the team’s tactical errors against Brighton, or the absence of Antony and Sancho.

However, their opinions are frequently presented as an attempt to increase social media connections or win over United supporters. It is purposefully naive, even when it’s a sincere belief. After Saturday’s loss to the Seagulls, Gary Neville had the perfect reaction.

He posted on social networking platform X that “they’ve presided over ten years of mediocrity off the pitch and on the pitch.” “They established the culture of avarice, indiscipline, uncertainty, and indecision that permeates the entire club. The club should be sold as quickly and effectively as possible, allowing at least the off-the-field issues to be resolved in a way that changes the tone and ethos.

Football is unpredictable, so outcomes on the field can be irregular and cyclical, but if the owners’ direction and leadership are strong off the field, you have a better chance of doing well there.

They are the Glazer family, of course. The only two Glazer siblings remaining interested in controlling this club, Joel and Avram, rarely attend games unless there is a fancy Wembley date. After the European Super League fiasco, they pledged improved communication, but nobody really believed they would keep their word.

Mason Greenwood’s condition would not have been allowed to continue for as long as it did and conclude the way it did if the football team had owners who were present, in mind and mattered as much as they were physically. Due to their lack of concern, they are not establishing any standards or culture. Everything begins with them.
