MUTV cut off Man United fan
A clip is doing the rounds on social media this week from MUTV.
Club legend Paddy Crerand holds a weekly phone-in on MUTV on Mondays.
Yesterday, one Man United fan called up the programme in an effort to discuss the club’s debt under the Glazers.
The fan managed to ask the following question:
Since 2005, over 750 million has been spent serving the debt that the Glazer family have put on Manchester United. What do you think about that?
After dropping the keywords ‘debt’ and ‘Glazer family’, the MUTV host quickly began to pipe up.
After trying to interrupt the questioner with an ‘OK’, he said:
Tom, we’ll just stop you there. Thank you.
So… I mean… [busts out laughing].
Paddy Crerand then hit back at the fan, saying, “there’s not a football club anywhere that’s not in debt”.
Tonight a caller tried to discuss the #FiveKeyQuestions and the Glazers and was immediately shut down on MUTV. This channel does NOT reflect the real supporters beliefs, it’s a channel of propaganda and tries to act like everything is great. It should be cancelled immediately. pic.twitter.com/fwqWMpizhZ

MUTV’s previously stopped the Paddy Crerand Show
Just over a month ago, MUTV canned an episode of the Paddy Crerand Show.
At that time, the Mirror speculated that Man United made this programming change in order to silence supporters calling into MUTV to voice opinions on the #GlazerOut campaign:
A new #GlazersOut tag has been trending on social media, and the club email address has reportedly been flooded with anti-Glazer messages.
Potentially as a result of the growing discontentment, United have cancelled the Paddy Crerand Show for the next two weeks.

The silence & discontent from our owners stems to our own TV shows. Please share, Reds. pic.twitter.com/6MfpeJrh5x

MUTV obviously aren’t going to allow people ring in and question the people who own MUTV, who don’t wish to be questioned. We knew that already, common sense.
But it was offensively dismissive of them to laugh after cutting the caller.

#MUTV have just completely dismissed two fans for calling our the glazers live on air, absolutely disgusting. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and have the right to voice it how they want.
