ABSTRACT
The article discusses by Malcolm Glazer's latest bid for the football club Manchester United. Manchester United will need a financial adviser to provide commercial reasoning to back up the club's decision to turn down a bid if Glazer makes a formal offer. This would become a matter of public record under Rule 3 of the code. The Manchester United bid is highly unusual in the level of passion it arouses and football clubs are an idiosyncratic type of business in that revenues are governed so much by on-pitch performance.
