I've been listening to Mark Goldbridge, surely I'm not the only one who thinks he'd fit in well here?

In your closet, in your head!
I’ve never forgiven him for the time he mocked Fellaini for celebrating after scoring a goal, and credited Martial instead. Or when he refused to celebrate a goal by Rooney because it was Rooney.

I find him absolutely nauseating and from what I have seen of his videos he just stirs up conflict for clicks and views.

Also a Forrest fan as a kid I believe. Definition of plastic. No idea why he is so popular.

I find most of the football channels on YouTube painfully amateur. Kick off is the one I've started watching recently and it's definitely a good watch and well put together.

Can't stand either of them.

The only YouTube football fan channel I enjoy is RabonaTV.
He is not a United fan but covers the premier League and is quite calm and measured in his analysis.

I do get a good laugh out of The Kick off because the rile each other up so much.

I'm scratching my head and all wondering why he's so popular.

What's his username on here?

What's your beef with Howson? To be fair, I've only seen a couple of his podcasts...

He hates when anyone disagrees with him and seems absurdly full of himself.

True. I do think Howson is real, and he does come across as a genuine fan. How about McKola or whatever he's called?

Yeah I do like McKola. His passion for United seems very genuine, and when him and that city twat they have on Kick off get into an argument it's very funny.

I used to respect him for keep making videos (That shit is hard to keep doing)

But Recently I think he is responsible for the trolls in the internet.

Goldbridge is a legend, good football knowledge but more about the show he puts on,

Howson knows his stuff but seems like an arrogant prick tbh

All the guys on Stretford Paddock seem like they'd be nice guys and a good laugh. I've been watching McKola for years, he can get a bit obsessive over Martial but aside from that he's a nice guy. Howson seems to know his stuff and has lots of connections (i.e. has his own show with Rio Ferdinand) but I get why some people say he's up his own arse :lol:

I dislike all the fan cammers pretty much.

Howson is a twat. The gimp used to charge tourists money to take them to the pub before a game... and he'd charge people to give them a tour around the national football museum (which is free). An absolute grifter.

I've absolutely no idea why that absolute dweeb has probably the most popular United channel around. Clueless and knee jerk... so yeah he would be right at home here, wouldn't be surprised if he has an account.

He’s not my cup of tea. Fans channels are mostly crap now, AFTV showed the path to how to make big money and it’s not from football related content.

Seems very passionate about United.
I think my main takeway is that I just find him reasonable and forms his opinion in a way you can have a reasonable discussion. Not that there is one to be had, its a podcast/stream, but there's no sensationalism or kneejerk reactions which is always refreshing.

Goldbridge is in it for the money. Apparently not even a United fan so he purposely wums the community.

Howson is a proper sanctimonious prick. He irritates me so much on Five. He's so far up Rio's arse as well. He basically just parrots whatever Rio says and is unnecessarily confrontational with Beya, who IMO at least attempts to be impartial.

Webby and O Neil is a good one. Both used to work security at old Trafford and have good contacts with the former players. Think they now work at Hotel Football opposite the ground (but could be wrong) They regularly have Scholes, Neville on, and they are proper reds. No pretending with them

This.

My recommendations:

1. Football made simple.
2. Atlantis Football

One of the best channels out there right now is Don Robbie.

Production values are high quality and a variety of opinions.

Vibe with Five with Rio is an interesting watch, it's mainly United related chat.

Stretford Paddock and Webby and O’Neil are the 2 best United based Channels, also Rio’s Five channel is really good and has a lot of United centred content.

Steer well clear of United Stand and Goldbridge that channels a steaming pile of toxic shite. It’s only redeeming factor was Flex and he’s left now, although I think he may have started his own channel called United View but I haven’t checked it out yet.

They must have knew admission was free though not like it's hard to find out and if he was giving them a tour then that's fair enough isn't it? Tour guides don't work for free.

The pub thing I'm not sure about, I wouldn't pay to go and have a drink with a bloke off Youtube but each to their own I suppose.

Not really United related but I really enjoy Ben Foster's channel The Cycling GK and his podcast.

Goldbridge talks for far too along and most of it it repetitive. I like the guys outside the stadium on match days better.

Howson is more stereotypical of a Red Manc. Very sarcastic to the point where he comes across as argumentative or arrogant but passionate about the club beyond belief.

Goldbridge is just a performer. He's a clown that is more typical of your average glory hunter. Spoilt brat who chucks his toys out of the pram at any given chance.

Not overly fond of Fan channels at all really however only one of the two mentioned above is an actual proper Utd fan so he gets major plus points for that alone. Never bumped into Goldbridge on Euro away days etc but I have Howson a few times.

They’re all idiots for the same reason. They stick to a narrative and refuse to change it regardless of what happens on the pitch. Howson was obsessed with Ashley Young. Regardless of how he played, he was always shit. Regardless how we conceded a goal, it was always Young’s fault :lol: Reminds me of this forum and Lindelof last year, Fred this year, Fellaini back in the day…..

Goldbridge and McKola are the same.

He wasn’t really on YouTube at the time… or if he was, nothing like the popularity it is now. This was all before and he was just trying to milk cash off gullible tourists visiting United.

Charging tourists £20 a pop each to take them around a free museum when you aren’t anything like a qualified guide… and many people would happily show people around for free. He was just a grifter ripping people off.

I actually like him better than Howson. Howson looks down on other people and thinks his views are gospel. Mark tends to repeat himself a lot but I don’t find him that devisive. Case in point, it would’ve been easy for him to rant about the new deals for Phelan and Carrick, McKenna. But he didn’t. He simply said, they were a package deal so of course they had to get extended deals when Ole did. So maybe he’s calmed down a bit compared to when you boys watched him. I also think the way he sees the actual games isn’t too bad either and he has less of an agenda than Howson, whose treatment of Luke Shaw was shocking. Mark is an ego for sure and he's clearly milking it but I find him less offensive than Howson.

Personally, Flex Is where it’s at. A fun unbiased take on the rollercoaster ride we’re going through right now with Ole. I love this new stat man Cam guy he has on too. Really knows his shit when it comes to setup and tactics. I also love The Kick Off for the banter and more balanced viewpoint from other fans.
