Default MUST response to David Gill claim that MUST represents small minority

MUST response to David Gill claim that MUST represents small minority; MUST congratulates Sir Alex & team and welcomes ticket price freeze

Remarking on new claims by David Gill that MUST only represents a small minority of fans, Duncan Drasdo said:

"This is a time to celebrate the title and not a time to analyse the strength of opposition to the owners, however I'm sure David knows full well that we directly represent tens of thousands of match going fans including 18k season ticket holders amongst 190,000 members. However, more to the point we'd argue that, having caused the club to lose more than £550m in interest, fees and other costs the number of people who believe that the Glazers' takeover and ownership has been a good thing for Manchester United could be counted on a single pair of hands. Actually - far from being a majority in favour can there be any single Manchester United fan anywhere on the planet who believes that was good for our club?
Plenty of City and Liverpool fans love what the Glazers have done, of course, so I think that says it all. However now is surely not a time to debate this and we are surprised David has chosen to speak out when he has done. We look forward to a more positive relationship with his successor after he departs his CEO role at the club this summer."

"On a more positive note we'd like to add our congratulations to Sir Alex Ferguson, the players and all MUFC staff on a tremendous achievement of a record 20th League Title coming at the end of a tremendous domestic campaign. The true measure of Champions is how they bounce back from disappointment, and after the events of May last year we could not have asked for more than to win back our trophy as quickly as was possible.
Further good news for match-going fans came yesterday with the announcement that ticket prices will be frozen next season. While many fans will argue prices are still far too high and, perhaps, it was the least they could do given the huge growth in TV revenue, it is still something we welcome and we hope to see more progress in future, making supporting the club more affordable for its loyal fans."
