Of course he is not serious when he does this but insists it is great for the state of the game in England if there is not a monopoly on the title by the top four teams - Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and United.
Following United's loss to Liverpool on the weekend, Scudamore admitted he cheered as the result blew the title race wide open.
"The big clubs know I don't mean anything ill of them by this - but of course there is rejoicing in our office when the Burnleys pick off the league champions, when the Wigans beat the Chelseas," Scudamore said.
"No one could pick the champions with any certainty. All of us could have a guess, but no one could be absolutely certain."
