Sport: Man United 'cancel debate programme on MUTV at the last minute'

Luke Shaw says ALL the players have bought into Erik ten Hag's vision

  Luke Shaw says ALL the players have bought into Erik ten Hag's vision This time last year there was hope and expectation around Old Trafford after some eye-catching acquisitions followed second place finishes in both the Premier League and Europa League. But manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was out the door by November and interim successor Ralf Rangnick floundered, with United slumping home sixth in a humiliating end to a forgettable season.

Manchester United have reportedly axed one of the main programmes on their own in-house channel that was due to air on Monday - less than 24 hours after the dismal 4-0 drubbing at Brentford.

'The Debate' show on MUTV, which analyses the weekend's showing and other topics surrounding the club, had been scheduled to be on at 6pm on Monday night.

The programme usually features former players, such as Ben Thornley, as well as journalists covering the club, who are invited on for the half-hour discussion.

But United on Sunday decided to cancel it this week, citing staff shortages, according to The Sun.

United have blamed the fact that some staff who usually work on the programme are in Toulouse covering the women's team's preparations for pre-season.

  Man United Transfer News: Latest on Marko Arnautovic, Frenkie de Jong and other summer 2022 window player signings, loans & deals The latest news and rumours on Manchester United as they look to improve their squad in the 2022 summer transfer window.The three-time champions of Europe start the 2022/23 campaign in the Europa League after finishing sixth in the English top flight in 2021/22, compounding a season in which they rarely looked like challenging for the Champions League, FA Cup or EFL Cup.

But the timing will raise eyebrows - and smiles - as it follows the embarrassment at Brentford on Saturday, where United were four goals down inside 35 minutes and eventually fell to their second straight defeat under Erik ten Hag.

The result leaves United bottom of the Premier League table for the first time in 30 years and has sparked an inquest into their shambolic start to the campaign.

The club already appear to be in full-blown crisis mode, with the pre-season optimism quickly fading into familiar feelings of woe and discontent.

Axing the programme for Monday comes just days after United legend Lou Macari's now infamous appearance on the in-house channel.

Macari, speaking on a show to analyse Ten Hag's pre-Brentford press conference, raised concerns over United's move for Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot in a rare example of the club being criticised on their own TV station.

Herschel Walker Will Debate—if He Gets the Topics in Advance

  Herschel Walker Will Debate—if He Gets the Topics in Advance Professional athlete turned Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker has accepted one invitation to debate Democratic opponent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA)—and it just so happens to be the one debate that provides the topics in advance. That’s the single appreciable difference between four proposed debates, a subject that, according to the campaigns and event organizers, remains unresolved and confusing, despite the candidates jawing at each other for weeks.

'I'd never really heard of him,' said the 73-year-old Scot. 'Clubs spend millions of pounds to put scouts out there all around Europe to keep an eye on players. No one has made a move for this fella. Why? I've got a bad feeling about the guy.'

For a club still reeling from an opening-day defeat by Brighton and a tough week in which they have faced more anti-Glazer protests and a backlash from supporters over attempts to sign veteran striker Marko Arnautovic, it was not what United would have wanted to hear.
