I think MUTV has improved dramatically. I'm lucky enough that i can access it.
My favourite is the Paddy Crerand phone in show on a Monday night. It's on regularly on Mondays, sometimes it's not on if the first team or U21's are playing. Always interesting. Stewart Gardner hosts it, he's excellent.
Countdown to kick off is good on a Friday. And i like the Thursday night show with Helen Mc Connell and David May, Quinton Fortune is usually with them for a chat and fans phone in. Some great early United games etc on there.
By the way, there's a guy who phones in all the time, Phil in Prestwich, who is a right obnoxious git, everything is wrong with United. Here's a brilliant clip where Paddy Crerand lost the rag, justifiably so, as Phil was suggesting we weren't looking to sign certain players. I loved this guy getting put back in his place by Paddy.
Has Phil been back since ? Paddy Crerand is brilliant. His commentary is great to listen to also, always get a few laughs out of him.
Phil has been back yeah, can't stand the guy.
Paddy is a legend. Phil came on regularly talking nonsense most of the time and to Paddy's credit he kept his cool. When Phil started to suggest we were just not looking for midfielders, Paddy went mad and rightly so as above.
Cordon, MUTV is shown in 57 countries at the moment, likely to increase. The amount of money they could generate by showing games on MUTV around the world is huge. It won't happen right now or in near future obviously due to the new deal that's recently been signed with Sky plus other deals with the Prem and others around the world. There's also the issue that 3pm kick offs can not be shown on TV at the moment.
There's obviously a reason they've bought out Sky. This is one of the possibilities.
