Jimmy McGovern: BBC worried about 'anti-Manchester United bias

 

 

"They've asked questions, particularly about the anti-Manchester United bias in The Street. There was this big spiel about a character wanting to shoot Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand. I told them every chance I get I write with anti-Manchester United bias."

I've never really liked it, tries a bit hard, and the lads sitting round the table wouldn't just sit there looking shocked.

 

Its got nothing to do with how ugly their players are that I hate them, nothing whatsoever.

The delivery of the last line is what makes it art.

 

It makes it convincing acting by a very good actor, but the writing isn't quite on the mark. Maybe i'm too close to the subject, living in Manchester and having been in their pubs a lot, to have a feel for that scene.
