    Anyone tuned into it today (06 Aug 2018)?

    Was scathing! :eek:
    Lot's of pops at Mandy re: why she doesn't ask proper questions (of Jose or Pogba, etc).

    edit: the audio

    Not listened to it but I'm surprised they still do phone ins. When I used to watch it years ago the questions were terrible.

    I should have stopped listening after Lou said that Maguire would have cost 10-15 mill before the world cup.

    Yes Lou, Harry “signed from Hull for 17 mill and has since scooped both player of the season awards” Maguire would have cost United less than he did the year before.

    I cringe every time I listen to the Crerand show. Just club cucks playing good cop when any caller dare to question Jose or the club in general.

    Some of the callers raised decent points about signings, most of which are echoed on this forum and yet all were just fed the company line.

    Quinton Fortune even suggested we play McTominay on the right wing.

    "Martial is like Mbappe with depression"

    I shouldn't laugh, depression is a serious issue, but there were a few good quotes from callers on that show!

    I actually really enjoyed it tonight as the callers were saying what I would like to say. Also it is lovely watching the pundits looking a bit uncomfortable. Although Lou did say that if we were playing a more attractive style the fans would be happier.

    The love for McTominay on there is scary.

    I can't look at Hayley McQueen without seeing her dad charging out of central defence, ball at his feet, to go on a mad run into the opposition half.

    I'll dob myself in as somebody who watches that show. It's more interesting if United are struggling, have just lost or failed to win .

    If Dennis from London goes one week without calling, emailing or tweeting the show, I'll be impressed.

    A couples of weeks ago, one caller was concerned about United's ability to attract players with Mourinho as the manager. David May chimed in and said: ''It's Manchester United''.

    Sure United are a big club but that was head in the sand stuff which is to be expected.

    It seems Fortune and Macari are afraid to say anything bad about Mourinho or the team. They are like puppets on a string.

    Fortune just laughed his way through the show as though fans haven't got a clue, but there were times him, Lou and Mandy looked seriously uncomfortable.

    It is MUTV, what do you expect? If we cant spread United propaganda and good feelings on there, where else? The sole purpose of that channel is marketing, not questioning the players/manager or the club.

    You somehow have to interact with fans. But they will just ignore their worries and go on about whatever they come up with.

    Watched it for the first time in ages. Paddy wasnt there

    Was nice to see mandy henry i dont think she is on MUTV that often these days...looked lovely in that red dress

    Caught the bit when a caller was moaning about Martial not smiling enough and making light of depression or something like that

    Bit of a negative show...everyone jumping on the bandwagon...

    Come on United win against Leicester and quiet a few misers :lol:

    Haha yes - he was hilarious.
    Quite a few angry calls this week.
    Should be a worrying trend for the club.

    Only saw the end. Sounds like it is a follow on from last Monday. Also Nessie from Aberdeen does not like Paul Pogba.

    Angry alan was complaining about being made to wait an hour for the phone in on friday, apparently this means its disgusting how the club treats its fans, he then had a meltdown about being made to wait 20 minutes to buy his matchday program because this season the stand now sells food too

    Another caller was complaining about the new shirt being £94 and how the big bad corporate money hungry club were ripping off fans

    Nessie from aberdeen was complaining about pogba ripping the ball out of alexis hand and how she hates his attitude

    Thanks. Must have been difficult for Crerand to sit through that.

    It was him and Sammy McIlroy and really they are not in a position to answer any of those complaints.

    That caller who said Martial has to prove he's depressed by not smiling once through a Tim Vine dvd though.

    Paddy did'nt have a clue what 'Angry Alan' was complaining about, he sat there laughing like a drunk uncle at Xmas, 'Alan' was pointing out that It took 20 minutes to get a match day programme because the programme kiosk's also now sell food, his point was that he did'nt want to be queuing for food,(which he believes to be yet another commercicial excercise to squeeze money from supporters) yet Paddy kept saying something like 'for Christ sake take some sandwich's' !

    I mentioned last week that the pundits were just laughing when people rang in moaning about the Bayern performance. That the fans are idiots and I know better than you. Fans moan, but I think Alan has a genuine grievance. For Paddy to say that was stupid as I presume on matchday he gets his food provided and waits for nothing. He is also getting paid to watch United no matter how they play.

    Also the fans last Monday were moaning before they realised we were not bringing any more players in.

    I rarely watch the phone-ins, but you are right, they brush aside any critism of themselves or the club, It might satisfy the bigger audience, but if you have United running through your veins it infuriates.
