Manchester United: BBC News mocks Red Devils with on-air mistake

Image for Manchester United: BBC News mocks Red Devils with on-air mistake

Many Manchester United fans will be furious as footage emerged on the BBC which appeared to mock their club during a live broadcast.

Indeed, earlier today, a news bulletin on BBC News ran a caption underneath that ran the headline: “Manchester United are rubbish.”

TV critic Scott Bryan confirmed the image was indeed true and soon after shared more footage of the BBC apologising for the gaffe, explaining that a trainee was learning how to write text for the ticker and accidentally published it.

TIF Thoughts on Manchester United…

It hasn’t been the best of the seasons for the Red Devils. Indeed, they ended their campaign with a drab 1-0 defeat against Crystal Palace which means they scraped into sixth spot, finishing 11 points behind Arsenal, who were one position above them.

Considering that, Manchester United fans will already be feeling pretty down in the dumps. So to be mocked on national television without any context would have been the last thing they would have wanted to see.

Will Manchester United improve next season?





In a season full of mistakes for the Red Devils, it almost feels appropriate for it to all be capped in such a manner. Even so, that will be of little comfort to their loyal fanbase.
