We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

Yep.

Each and every one of the last 38 [?] FA Cup matches Man Utd have played has been televised live.

Ker-ching!!

[The date I quoted was meant to be the date of the Exeter replay, btw. Apologies if I cocked it up.]

To be fair, the TV companies are going to want to get the highest viewing figures that they can, and they know that by showing Manchester United they stand a pretty good chance of doing just that.
