We’re going to end up being dodgier than the blue half!

I've no problem with it. Sure we're hearing the media preach about moral superiority saying we shouldn't accept such owners but the same people didn't make a peep about city's dodgy owners. If they want to run united as a vanity publicity project and pump billions in then so be it. The aim is to be the best and with the Saudis we would have owners who share that aim. The current owners don't have that aim. And before any says about selling the clubs soul that happened years ago. Knighton, Murdoch, McManus, floating on the stock market, taking "football club" off the badge, the glazers. The clubs soul was sold years ago. Dodgy owners holding the club back or dodgy owners who dont. Tough choice.

Dodgy is a but of an understatement for Saudi Arabia. All you have to do is read up on the WWE's Crown Jewel fiasco to see how damaging it is to be associated with the Saudis.

An absolute abhorrent regime who would use our great football club to promote the horrific regime. We would not be the biggest club in the world for long as some people actually have a shred of decency.

As long as the club's debt is wiped off who cares who owns us. The Saudi, s will invest in the team . We're as the Glaziers are only concerned about relating us to any promotional ideas where they can brand our name.

For me it's about balance. Historically the Saudi regime has been guilty of some awful things including its Human Rights record, it's treatment of women, and the LGBT community etc. Though that said the state is trying to engineer change.

If it was a German multi billion pound regime looking to own the club would there be dissent because of the actions of person Germany or the regimes before? Chinese ownership of clubs has come into football and yet the Chinese regimes have seen a greater death toll than person Germany or Lenin's USSR. But their record on human rights etc. is less questioned.

I'm not saying that Saudi ownership is the correct way forward for the club, more that the Saudi regime should be allowed to progress and demonstrate it's intent to change rather than be pilloried indefinitely.

I think all fans and supporters of the club want what is best - and at the moment regardless of whose billions are funding the club, it is a structural overhaul and serious longer term planning that is needed.

@Becksrightboot - There's a big difference between something like person Germany, which ended over 70 years ago, and Saudi human rights abuses, which are still hapening now. Until actual evidence of change is forthcoming, people are going to ask these questions.

Personally, I don't know whether I could support a Saudi owned club. There are more important things than football.
