So here it is. The new FullTimeDEVILS website. We're not stopping YouTube, so don't panic. We're just building something that's a little more real-time and on the pulse. It's still in its infancy. We're testing lots of really cool and unique features that you won't be seeing anywhere else; we have an amazing new matchday feed where we're able to measure the feeling around players, games and managers and track how that feeling changes over the course of a day, a game or even over 10 minutes! We're able to collate the very best of social media and post it all in one place. You may have seen the 'emotional doughnuts' on The Football Republic's live shows during the Euros. It's that but more of it, essentially, which brings us nicely to explain a little about The Football Republic and our relationship with them.
FullTimeDEVILS is part of The Football Republic, a network of fan-centred YouTube/Facebook/Twitter channels run by Shotglass Media. We share support, advice, resources and we collaborate with the other channels all the time; it's great to work with the wider team on TFR Live and other content but what will never change is the fact that here on FTD we are United fans through and through! We will post TFR content on our pages if we think it's relevant or of interest to you, but ultimately we have United and United fans at the heart of everything we do.
We have big plans for this season and for this site and we are interested in your feedback so you can contact us here if you need to, but most of you know we're probably most often on Twitter! What we won't be doing with this site is replicating what others do and some do very well; we won't be writing long form content as we aren't journalists. We want this site to be your home for immediate fan reaction to United news and opinion across the world so if you're reading elsewhere about the latest transfer rumours and want someone to sift through the bull, that's us. If you want to get involved in some way, drop us an email with FTD in the subject line and we'll try to get back to you as soon as we can. If you're an existing United site producing longer form written content or great social posts we would like to talk to you about how we can collaborate and feature your best content on here.
We expect the site will evolve quite a bit as we get to grips with how best to use it during the season, but we are excited to be able to introduce this to you and hope you all find it as enjoyable and informative as our videos are...sometimes!
Get us bookmarked, and please tell your red mates.
