Voice of the Mirror: ‘Football is the people’s game and fans don’t like how tycoons run it’ – Voice of the Mirror

The hated owners of Manchester United can be under no illusion about the anger of the club’s fans after a protest on the pitch forced the postponement of a crunch match against Liverpool.

Hiding in America, refusing to be held accountable, the Glazers are to blame for the protest – and the other foreign billionaires who plotted the doomed European Super League should be trembling in their boots.

While questions must be answered about weak security at Old Trafford yesterday and supporters will be divided over the pitch invasion, fan power is here to stay.

And proprietors, in future, will lose if they try to do whatever they want and take football followers for granted.

Football is the people’s game and the people don’t like the way tycoons are running it.

Nazanin hope

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe and her family have been to hell and back many times over the past five years.

So let us hope the latest hint of her release is not dashed and they are finally reunited.

Iranian state TV’s suggestion that Britain has agreed to pay a £400million debt in return for her freedom shows how the mum has been used as a pawn in an international dispute.

The Foreign Office downplayed the report Nazanin could soon be on her way home.

But Boris Johnson will never be forgiven for worsening her plight when he was Foreign Secretary after wrongly asserting she had been working rather than on holiday in Iran.

The debt should be repaid by Britain and the aid worker should be freed from prison.

Sigh of tiger…

Happy 60th birthday to a World Wide Fund for Nature created in 1961 after the Daily Mirror revealed many of the planet’s animals were in danger of extinction.

The WWF has achieved a lot over the decades but the job is never ending so we praise a global organisation with much done, more to do.
