    The difference between us and Chelsea is enough to pay Fellaini's wages for about a year and a half.

    I very much doubt it. It's not really there job to make sure the club turns a profit and neither is it in the club's interest.

    wow

    really interesting to see the correlation between TV appearances and league position

    Poor Swansea, Stoke and West Brom doomed by Sky/BT

    lots of teams a place or two away from league position

    It’s felt like every City game has been on this season.

    This is the cult of personality folks.
    United are the biggest draw due to our history under Sky and Jose is a huge attraction due to his previous antics as Chelsea boss. It matters little that our games have been largely dross.

    If anything, this is evidence, if we even needed it, that the majority of football viewers are casual fans not watching because of any interest in current quality.

    Brighton might make over £10m if they beat Liverpool. Get in there!

    Aye, but it's peanuts really.

    Had no idea there was such a difference between bottom and top of the table.. Hey ho though, disgusting amounts of money and the sooner the arse drops out of professional football the better.

    That's fair enough since no one really switches on the TV to watch the random club in Manchester.

    The other Manchester team better accept that money can buy you players, and flash, and bling, and stadiums, and even titles; but supporters and a committed, interested, could give a feck audience is an entirely different kettle of fish. Guardiola my ass. Redcafe take note.

    Impressive amount for Burnley, £118m and only 7 games shown live.

    I enjoy watching City more than United, that's how poor our football is.

    I don't understand why you would watch another team play.

    I saw them twice against us and couldn't see what all the fuss was about.

    If you enjoy watching them so much, there's plenty of room in their stadium.

    Not surprised, more people want to watch us. Bigger fan base and an actual fan base as well.
