Stan Collymore and Jim Rosenthal sing ‘Thursday night, Channel 5’ during Europa League coverage
The derogatory chanting aimed at Manchester United and Manchester City following their Europa League ‘qualification’ – not least by Ashley Cole – could be taken as an insult by the broadcaster.
Instead they wisely decided to treat it as free advertising. Presenters Jim Rosenthal and Stan Collymore enjoyed a singalong of the song over a montage of Europa League action.
