RIP Malcolm Glazer. Feel sorry for him to be honest, spent the last year of his life watching David Moyes undo all the work he put into utd.

Anyone who is celebrating the death of Malcolm Glazer isn't a football fan & more importantly, isn't a human in my eyes. Time & place.

R.I.P Malcolm Glazer, No matter what you thought of him you shouldn't celebrate anyone's death.

RIP Malcolm Glazer. He may not have been the most best owner and he certainly didn't capture anyone's hearts, but he's still a human being.
