Could this be the end of an era?

Many pundits think so. One even went as far as saying that United won't win a major trophy in the next five years. That is a bit premature in my opinion.

I don't think United will win the PL this year. Chelsea should be strong enough,mentally, to regain the Barclays Premier League.

However, if Fergie is given money to spend in the summer, than United could have their renaissance.

If the Glazers cannot provide the capital, then it looks like another trophy-less year awaits the Red Devils.(I know we won the Carling Cup but is that something to cheer about?)

United fans have been calling for the Glazers heads for some time, and should the Green and Gold campaigners get their wish and United's debt is cleared, the storm over the Red half of Manchester will fade.

However, if the Glazers stay, United will suffer. Slowly but surely the fans will leave, players will leave and Fergie will leave.

United's darkest hour of this millenium could be just around the corner. Whether they will have the shining light that they so desperately require remains to be seen.
