  • It's not that he doesn't feel he can't continue on it's because all others want him to leave. Say it how it is. If it were up to him he'd still be vice chairman! Don't be a moron!

  • Genuinely the happiest day of my life supporting United.

  • if this ain't a wake up call i just don't know what will be

  • BOY LET ME TELL YOU, BEEN SUPPORTING UNITED SINCE I WAS 9, THIS HAS GONE FROM WRONG TO RIGHT SO FAST!

  • He’s acting as the fall guy for the Glazers. They’ll say they were just following his business advice to save their skin

    • pockets. Now we need the young Saudi magnate and Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman to buy the club and injects oil money into the club to restructure a

  • Yesssssss

    • make Manchester United come back to its glory days guys. This is fact, we all have to agree !

  • Thankyou god, only the 3 stooges to go

    • damn looks like tim sherwood hasn't slept in days lol

  • Now glazers turn to get out from united

    • make Manchester United come back to its glory days guys. This is fact, we all have to agree !

  • Well as a United fan I must say this that this news is better then any silverware that we might win this season... 😍 😍 😍

    • pockets. Now we need the young Saudi magnate and Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman to buy the club and injects oil money into the club to restructure a

  • If one good thing came from the ESL fiasco it was this, Good riddance, now we need the Glazer's out

  • What made me laugh was they said he was leaving at the end of the year anyway and the announcement was simply brought forward in case it was leaked. They seriously expect anybody to believe that?! lol

  • all these owners must go, what a disgrace

  • Manchester United fans!! Your shityy days are gone..its time for the red devils to rise again!

  • Yesss...finally,Wood,just go home...

  • Sell the club to the saudi... N build the biggest team in the world NOW

  • Who cares.. GLAZERS OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT

  • American football supports stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our brother football supporters in England.

  • The Glazers need to go. They have been using the Manutd club as leverage for 16 years and the spendings of players always came from the club's revenues and not from their pockets. Now we need the young Saudi magnate and Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman and other Saudi royals to buy the club and injects oil money into the club to restructure and invest in Manchester United and make the Club's value and revenue become number 1 in the world. Manutd will win more trophies than ever. Just look how Manchester City changed drastically when sheikh Mansour bought the club and how it became. We all have to be realistic. That is the only way and solution to make Manchester United come back to its glory days guys. This is fact, we all have to agree ! We need Mohammed bin Salman !

  • one greedy fucker gone ... 100.000 "managers" to go

  • Yeah great job fans! Side with the evil corrupt snobs running FIFA!!!

  • damn looks like tim sherwood hasn't slept in days lol

  • Can he not go now! We don't want him there another minute longer than necessary

  • The Glazers Geezers should leave too

  • Finally!! After how many years?? At least 15 years

  • What if they just pretended of doing it on purpose just to threaten FA, Ueafa and Fifa so that they get more revenue and power from existing fixtures after this blunder!! I don't think they are so stupid just to dig a grave for by taking such stupid step.

  • Ed Woodward gone forever and ever .... i am so happy , so long sucka...... thanks for nothing.

  • This ESL would hav really helped in funding clubs to help them pay their debts, pay players and also get bigger players. You all don’t get it, most big clubs are in debts, players are extorting big clubs with their huge wages and you fans expect your clubs to sign Haaland, Mbappe and other big players, where would the money come from to sign these players. No more stadium ticket sales, most of the money clubs get from TV rights goes to UEFA, UEFA are actually the greedy ones here! How can a club get just €100M from winning the UCL. UEFA need to top up the money clubs gain from qualifying, reaching the knockouts and also winning the UCL, this way big clubs won’t be thinking about creating ESL. The small clubs you feel for are also extorting big clubs, don’t you know how much they sell their good players to us big clubs, cutthroat prices!! This ESL would hav really helped finance big clubs, it’s not really about their pockets only. UEFA knws the money they won’t be getting anymore if the ESL is created, they’re also after their pockets, you think they care about us fans or the players? If they do, why don’t they fight RACISM the way they’re fighting the ESL! You all really need to wake up!

  • Awesome now get an ex player in that role who have some passion about them.

  • ed Woodward is the biggest mistake man united have ever had.

  • snake has slithered off

  • great start, great

  • And that has brightened my day.

  • All we need now is for the Glazers to sell up!

  • Happy that Woodward step down... Hope we got some players we want to sign

  • Did he fall on his sword or was he thrown onto it? Who cares? Chinless is gone. One down and some Yanks to go.

  • Someone needed A ScapeGoat; they got Woodward.

  • Best news

  • Obligar a una empresa privada a sólo jugar las competiciones que el Gobierno posee, y no dejar que organicen otras competiciones privadas entre ellos....... Eso es comunismo..... No pensaba que UK tuviese esos pensamientos tan antiguos.

  • Finally he’s gone. Also don’t believe he’s brought the announcement forward from the end of the season, he’s just saving face. He and the Glazers really messed up here and underestimated the power and love British football fans have for their clubs and sport. Parasites

  • Best news ❤️❤️❤️

  • This whole thing has been a blessing in disguise. I'd be surprised if some of these owners aren't run out of clubs too. I hope the Glazers sell up and piss off.

  • Yh

  • LET'S GOOO!!! *GOOD RIDDANCE.* Now *GLAZERS OUT! 🔰* We will *never* forget what happened, unforgivable and absolutely disgraceful.

  • Hopefully the current performance won't be effected by this episode.

  • Take the math Founding teams get 3billion dollars and from who are they going to get the money from?Answer is themselves Fifa and UEFA have not taken actions cause they themselves know that a chunk of money is reserved for them.Of he suggests this is to end the financial crisis he just empties his pockets giving 3billion to other clubs But if each club has to give the share then they themselves have to pay 3billion to themselves which means they don't get any money at all The sponsors of this cup is a financial company but the company can be in crisis cause paying the teams every year with a huge total like this is pure foolishness or the teams will have to make a huge deposit and they have to claim their own money every year Whatever happens no money will be made from this cup They are just fooling themselves lol Please👍👍If you found my message usefull This is original and it took some time to break this down

  • We are not winning EPL.. I don't know about europa league.. if we are going to win o not ?? But very happy nd very satisfying cos of Woodward out.. it's a win more than ny league for me..🙏

  • Nearly but not quite. He's still here til the end of the season, unless someone clever at utd push him out now incase he starts anymore shinanigans. Get rid of the Glazers whilst we're at it. 👏👏👏👍

  • Good old days are is back??

  • Problem is, they'll just get another 'yes' man in! I miss football.

  • feel sorry for all those teams on loan and FIFA , UEFA should come up with solution or investors will leave all this club

  • Haaland or Sancho now? Which one though or both? Haha

  • i havent watched so much sky sports news for 20 years.

  • Man utd better off without him.

  • Good riddance, he wont be missed anyway especially at MUTD !

  • Now its time for the Glazers to leave ffs

  • Is this an April fool joke ?

  • Now we just wait for Saudi Arabia PIF to buy MUFC, then its perfect...

  • Not even a United fan, but I feel happy

  • We need 50 + 1 now...

  • Glazer's need to go, there the issue.

  • YESSS we can actually win

  • I am a Porto fan, but I have a huge admiration for Man Utd and for what they represent in the football world. However, for the past 7-8 years Man Utd are unrecognisable and they play an absolute pathetic football style under supervision of a very limited and narrow minded coach. It is great news to see Ed gone, I just hope Ole is the next one.

  • Please appoint Van Der Sar!

  • It’s not “Edward wood” 😂

  • Hope our new person is much better

  • We've won the battle, now we have to get back our club and win the war. GLAZERS OUT

  • Good 🥂

  • United, Liverpool and other big club will go bankrupt soon. The fans will end the beauty of the game

  • TBH, I'm extremely grateful to this so called ESL. Had it not been for this idea of a ESL, Woodward could still be destroying us Red Devils. Cos for years we've been trying to push him out but failed. Guess what, ESL did it jst like that!! 😉👏👏👏

  • Time to push the glazers out now!

  • I think it’s about time for a change United fan since I was in the womb and I’ve seen recently it seems like we’ve been dragged back and I think this maybe a new fresh start, let’s go cmon you reds ❤️
