    It's Manchester United, United or Man United.
    What an excellent interview. Loved the bit about Ruud.
    Thanks for asking my question. It's sad that there'll be no further Rough Guides to United's seasons.

    This is really good. Could listen to Any Mitten all day.

    His take on the Glazer situation is the most heartfelt, least hysterical and basically spot on the money opinion I've heard.

    I bet Andy Mitten is jealous that Johnno features more in Perry Boys Abroad than he does....

    He did do the intro to be fair, but I was in several chapters, all magnificence I may add.

    Yeah, I saw that thread in Chat Gen. Looks like an interesting read. What did it say about you?

    Mitten is fantastic...I'd echo Pogue's sentiments. Whether you could call it a great interview is debatable...it's just a great spiel from Mitten. Player insight & Glazer situation in particular


    ..sorry, had to get a dig in there somehow :cheeky smiley of some sort:

    Harsh, Mockney.

    The key to a good interview is knowing when to shut up and allow an interesting interviewee to hold the floor without being interrupted. The lads managed this very well.

    Excellent stuff, interviewing a real supporter as well and it shows. As said previously could listen to him all day talking about United, and his take on Eto'o is hilarious. Top class stuff.

    Haven't listened to this podcast before but I might start now, that was fantastic.

    Great interview. Especially the player insight, I could listen to that all day.

    Btw, who's the Scottish guy who seems to choke on his own tongue every time he tries to speak? He was slightly off putting.
