Thank you for dropping by our Patreon page. The Stephen Howson YouTube channel has been massively elevated by supporters on Patreon. We've gone from making videos in the loft to operating out of an office space and having staff helping out, which in turn has meant that the videos we've been able to make have shot up in quality. So thank you!

I want to say, the content we produce for YouTube and iTunes is and always will be free. The documentaries and football travel vlogs I have done so far have cost me hundreds to create, and the return on YouTube ads doesn't come to even 5% of what that cost is. That means I struggle to be able to produce more of this kind of content, that I love to make, and you guys love to watch. I mentioned this a couple of times on the podcast which has resulted in quite a lot of you suggesting we look into this, Patreon.

What we want to deliver with this Patreon, is better quality football related content that you're simply not seeing out there. But we want to do it with our community. So we think that giving you guys the chance to steer the content to what you want to see is the best way to involve you guys in how this channel operates. Deciding who we bring on, where we go, which documentaries we make, we'll involve patrons in the decision-making process by votes in a private Facebook group and go with what that group decides we do!

As a thanks for the support, Patreon members currently receive; 
  • Weekly Behind The Scene Vlogs
  • Patreon Only Podcast
  • Insider Info from Manchester United
  • Members only Facebook group
  • Discord group with several channels, including Matchday chat and priority for questions during live shows
  • All the above is current, but loads more will happen as and when we get into the goals. 

Which brings us to our goals, what are we trying to achieve? We aim to bring some of the most popular names in UK sport onto the podcast. We'll have a proper chat with them, not those stuffy, guarded interviews you've seen in the past, but a long meandering conversation that's enjoyable to listen to, hopefully, a little funny and certainly lifts the lid on the life and career of each guest.



If we nail that goal, the next thing we'll do is more documentaries. Like the Munich video I did, which got great reception, I want to deliver high end, well shot, videos on subjects in and around the beautiful game. You can find a thousand transfer rumour videos and match reviews as far as you can see, but intelligent, informative documentaries on football are thin on the ground. I'd like to bring those to you. Corruption in sport, steroids, the life of an agent on deadline day, this is all the sort of thing we want to make.

We’re also looking to bring back The Thursday Club, our weekly football/pizza/conspiracies/fighting/anything we wanna talk about podcast. The Thursday Club is really enjoyable to make - it’s one of the easier to prepare for podcasts, we just put the camera on and have a chat about whatever’s going on - and you all seem to enjoy it! It can be difficult, sadly, to find time to make this kind of light-hearted, easier content amongst all the madness of working in YouTube full time, so it’s something that we’re only really able to keep on doing if those of you who are willing & able to support the podcast can!

If we manage that, the relaunch of Meat Pie would be next on the agenda! I think the World Cup series was a success. You lot seemed to really engage with some of the sections. I think there’s potential there for Meat Pie, with your support, to be the best football-related content on YouTube. We’ve got loads of mad ideas that we think you’ll really enjoy. We wanna look at what’s happening in the world of football with an angle that nobody else is taking. We wanna have comedians, YouTubers, five-a-side, crossbar challenge & loads more! Our plans for this show are massive, so obviously it takes a little more to bring it to life - which is where you can help!

Further stretch goals include the introduction of gaming streams, Football Manager, FIFA, retro - who knows where we can end up! 

Thanks for taking the time out to read this, if you've any questions, suggestions or ideas, you should know where to find us!
