So that's 650million that saw taggart losing the plot enough to throw a hissy-fit.

I could be wrong but I think 650 million TV viewers is a new Premier League record. Does anyone know anything different?
Tudor
Surely the rags get more than 650m viewers for their Carling cup matches Tudor?

Its a shame 650 million people tuned in to watch a poor game and only 1 team go for the result Man Utd were about as attacking as blackburn ;) Good luck lads hope you take the Title...if Man Utd play like that again its bloody Guaranteed :)

Well done and all, but it was a crap game to be honest from a neutrals' point of view. Sky were hyping it up (as usual) but it was dire. There's a billion people in the third world living (and dying) on a dollar a day, so I think that in the grand scheme of things most people didn't really give that much of a ***** about it. I'm glad for City fans though. It was great to see that lowlife Rooney with a face like a bulldog chewing a wasp at the end, the filthy toad that he is.

Most watched match in U.S. cable history apparently. 1.03million average, previous best was only 610,000 in comparison!

I see a sinking ship in the harbour...played out in front of a tenth of the world's population!!!

1.03 million viewers for a Monday afternoon game in the US? That is spectacular.

Henry Baker Brown. As much as I agree with your sentiments, there's other forums for discussing the woes of the world. Admittedly we were far from our best but it's hard against spoiling tactics.
