    Old Trafford turns “toxic”

    Old Trafford turns “toxic”

    Mark Chapman is joined by former Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher, former West Ham and England goalkeeper Rob Green and our senior football reporter Ian Dennis to reflect on Burnley’s shock 2-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

    Mark asks the panel whether they think Manchester United are “shambolic”, they discuss what the club need to do to improve on and off the pitch – particularly in the transfer window - and they assess what they think is a “toxic” atmosphere at Old Trafford following that defeat.

    Leicester City thrashed West Ham 4-1 – but the main talking point is Jamie Vardy went off injured - and Tottenham got their first Premier League victory of 2020 with a 2-1 win over Norwich.

    You’ll hear reaction from Ole Gunnar Solskjær, Sean Dyche and Brendan Rodgers on the pod.

    Allison assists Liverpool to victory and Pope saves Burnley’s win over Leicester

    Emma Saunders is joined by former Manchester United midfielder Jonathan Greening, former Liverpool midfielder David Thompson and Ben Haines from 90min as Liverpool secured a 2-0 victory over Manchester United.

    The team unpick Manchester United’s tactics, especially when defending set-pieces and discuss why Liverpool are possibly “game managing” their way to the Premier League title.

    There were chants of “Nick Pope is England number one” from Burnley fans in their 2-1 win over Leicester City – so the panel debate whether Gareth Southgate should choose Pope over Pickford.

    They discuss that handball “save” made by Steve Cook and how Bournemouth Eddie Howe handled the situation in their 1-0 defeat to Norwich.

    Can Wolves threaten the top four, do Chelsea need to sign a striker and is Steve Bruce’s style of play at Newcastle a hit with our panel?

Interesting but unreliable

The Guardian’s Football Weekly is a twice weekly podcast, and The Game from the Times comes out once a week. So it’s really nice to have a good-quality (almost) daily podcast focussed on football. A couple of things that could be improved:

1. With about one out of every ten episodes, the file is damaged and can’t be downloaded or streamed. Making an MP3 file and putting it on a server without damaging it should be a routine task, and is done with approximately 100% reliability by most outfits. It’s difficult to understand why that’s such a challenge for the BBC.

2. Get rid of the ridiculous “wall of sound” intro (and outro, and occasional insert). It’s twice as loud as the content, so listeners have to keep rushing to the volume controls during each episode. It sounds like you let a kid loose playing with some sound effects, and then said, “OK, that’ll do.”

While you’re at it, how about rewriting the jingles so that they make more sense?

“Podcast it now on BBC Radio 5 Live.” We just listen; you are the guys who are doing the broad/podcasting.

“Thank you for taking the time to download this BBC Radio 5 Live podcast.” If you’re talking about actual manual downloading, then presumably you’re referring to each individual episode, not the podcast as a whole. In any case, most people subscribe to a podcast, and then each episode is downloaded automatically; most of us don’t preview each episode and then make a decision to download it. And, even when we do, it usually involves tapping a button once, rather than the complex and time-consuming operation you seem to be picturing.


Great show, but...

The sports media always talks in extremes whether that be about Jose’s epic fall from elite management or man u’s ability to win the prem again. Mourinho has not lost his touch; he’s a great manager. Think about his two predecessors at Man U, one of whom won nothing and the other an Fa cup and both came in with strong reputAtions. If Jose went to Spurs with their players and defence I think he’d surpass poch (albeit
In the short term)



We don’t need the intro of Mark Chapman trying to be one of the lads. It’s a bit awkward.
