Rio, prawn toast and Glenn Yoda
We always knew taking Football Focus from Old Trafford was going to be contentious. It seems there are quite a few football fans out there - you could be one of them - who have a deep-rooted hatred of all things Manchester United.
We had a similar polarised response when we went to Arsenal and Tottenham last season but the whole point of these shows is to give you, as a viewer, a bit of insight and access to a club that you very rarely get.
Yes, one of the guests is normally associated with the team and about three to four of the pieces will be about the club we are visiting but I am not going to make any excuses about that. After all, that's the whole point of being there.
The best thing to do is park your prejudice for 45 minutes, take off the spectacles of rage and pretend you are having a nose around someone else's house.
So far, we have done one of our on-the-road shows each month and I think the next one will take us to the Midlands sometime in early December. We will let you know exactly where closer to the time.
I travelled up to Manchester late on Thursday to get cracking on filming the opening for last week's programme. We started at 0830 GMT on Friday and had to get most of our work done before heading to the training ground to interview Rio Ferdinand at 1130.
Meeting Rio on our trip to Old Trafford
We got to Carrington on time and set up our equipment in one of the interview rooms next to main reception. It was a bit weird to be back. I used to go down there every week to speak to players and Sir Alex Ferguson when I was a reporter in the North West.
In fact, the last time I was in that exact room was seven years ago. Fergie banned me for six months for asking a question about David Beckham going to Real Madrid. Fun times!
Ferdinand turned up bang on 12 and we spent about 20 minutes with him talking about Wayne Rooney, injuries, Wolves, Nani's goal, arguing with referees and Twitter. I spotted that he had an iPad with him and asked what he was using it for. The club apparently have quite a few of them that they hand out to players. His had been loaded with video clips of Kevin Doyle and various Wolves set pieces for Rio to study at home that night.
After we were done, we bid farewell and legged it to Old Trafford to film a few more bits and pieces inside the ground. Then it was back to the hotel at about 1530 to write the scripts for the programme and speak to the editor, Mark Cole, who wasn't arriving until about 2230 that night.
I finished the scripts at about 1900 and then went, with a couple of the crew, to eat some of the finest prawn toast this side of Texas in Manchester's Chinatown.
By the time I had polished off the last of the crispy chilli beef, the editor and Lee Dixon had arrived at the hotel. I said hello and then disappeared to write down the whole script on a single piece of paper. I know it is slightly obsessive but ever since my GCSEs I have discovered that if I write something out meticulously the night before it stays in my brain for at least eight hours. The tactic got me through my exams and has never failed since.
The next morning I conquered two poached eggs and some black pudding, did my regular interview with Jo Good on 6 Music at 0800 and then headed to the ground for a walk through the show.
I looked through some of the pieces. The Cardiff v Swansea tape was a cracking bit of TV and I also caught up with Dan Roan's interviews with Liverpool's new owners before Dixon and Nicky Butt rocked up at 1130 and chatted freely in the tunnel about old times. I think Dixon might have mentioned Arsenal's title win at Old Trafford in 2002 a few times.
He also told a great story about how - on the day of that game - Arsene Wenger took the whole Arsenal squad, who were wearing team tracksuits, on a walk around Manchester.
The players warned him that it was not a good plan but he ploughed on regardless until he was accosted by an irate window cleaner who was furious to find Wenger on his patch. After a bit of face-to-face rage, the boss announced that the team would be swiftly returning to the sanctity of the hotel.
I hope you enjoyed a look inside the Old Trafford dressing room during Saturday's show. Normally, it is closed off to everyone except staff and players once it has been swept for electronic devices at about 1100 on match days. Thankfully, kit manager Albert Morgan was keen to show us around and we were able to enter the inner sanctum.
We had some serious technical issues for the last 20 minutes of the show. I could not hear the director, editor or production assistant telling me how long was left on the programme. I hope you didn't notice.
This Saturday, we have got a sit-down chat with Cesc Fabregas and Theo Walcott, who have some interesting things to say about Tottenham. We will also hear from Premier League old boys Martin Jol, Michael Ballack and Sami Hyypia. Plus, we will ask if Stoke really are harshly treated by referees. And we have got all the goals from a busy midweek fixture list. Don't forget we are on BBC Two this week from 1215.
As ever, the best way to follow the show is at twitter.com/danwalkerbbc. We opted for a Star Wars-themed squad this week. Feel free to add your own suggestions or put down any comments or questions about the show.
