  • The tactics being employed by this guy are selfish beyond belief. Depriving East Manchester of jobs because of football club loyalties is frankly pathetic. He'll lose and be forced to sell at market rate so he'll end up with less money than was origunally offered no doubt. Another daft decision by a man who gas already gone bust previously I have read.

  • I cannot see that any true sportsman would be so blatantly pig headed as to object to City expanding their grounds. This reeks of profit opportunism and I fear that , as so often is the case, the only people who will benefit from this silly little show of bad faith are the lawyers . No disrespect to the lawyers involved , that is their job and they must act on their instructions but really this is stretching 15 minutes of fame too far.

  • What else would you expect from a bitter red nose.Do you think this guy would sell his £250 plots to any of the public,without finding out if they support City or not.Wouldn,t be surprised if he didn't have some backing from the swamp

    Author - there's a reason books are printed in black and white...

    Oh and by the way, how much is O'Brien's firm in the red? £350K or more, I read. Sounds like that is what he trying to address to me...

  • i'm sure the ratepayers of manchester will be delighted that the legal profession will be earning a small fortune from this dispute. When the council win their case o'brien should be made to pay all costs.

  • This guy is just bright enough to realise that he will lose the land anyway. So why not use football rivalry to mug off a load of gullible United fans and pocket £1.3m from many United fans in the process rather than £1m he would get from City.
    A bit of joined up thinking and enterpreneurship I would say!

  • I understood that they weren't new jobs for the area which were being created - rather they were just moving existing jobs and staff from their carrington training ground to the new site. Presumably the new site is attractive as anyone who lives in the area knows City have been given urban regeneration funding to move sites. In effect Trafford jobs are moving to Manchester. I don't know anything about the facts of the dispute (nor do i care) but i suppose the owner who may have been there for a long time may feel aggreived that he should be forced to move just because the football club (which is relatively new to the area) decides it needs more space and wants to take advantage of government/EU money.
