    S8 E13: Man City (a) preview

    S8 E13: Man City (a) preview

    September draws to a close and here comes October 2022, genuinely one of the busiest months in the 120-year history of Manchester United. Nine games to come in the Premier League, UEFA Europa League and EFL Cup. First up, Manchester City at the Etihad in the 2pm Sunday kick-off.
    Today on the show, we’re previewing Sunday’s match against City with the significant helping hand of Michael Plant, journalist at Manchester World who covers the clubs from both M16 and M11.
    Michael will give us his insight into how Erik ten Hag’s first few months at United have progressed and tell us whether he’s seen any teams this season manage to nullify Erling Haaland, who has monstrously racked up the goals for our local rivals so far.
    Later in the show, Harry Robinson is joined as always by cohost Jack Tait to talk about the game in further detail as we decide on our starting XIs, tactics and look ahead to this nine-game month of October. There’ll also be a youth and women’s round-up midway through the show. Enjoy!

    S8 E12: Moldova and Patreon mailbag

    S8 E12: Moldova and Patreon mailbag

    With two Premier League postponements for Manchester United's game, hosts Harry Robinson and Jack Take the opportunity to answer questions from the show's patrons.
    Before diving into some fascinating subjects, Harry talks about his time in Chisinau, Moldova with a bit of reaction to the unspectacular but important win over FC Sheriff at the Zimbru Stadium. There are details of Moldovan ultras, a Napoli-supporting hostel owner, a massive wine cellar and loads more.
    To see which questions we're answering, and head straight to the ones you're most interested in, check out the timestamps below.
    TIMESTAMPS
    00:00 Introduction
    01:00 Jadon Sancho’s good finish and other quick takeaways
    03:20 Lisandro Martinez’s AR-GEN-TINA chant and the background to his surprise about it
    07:30 Harry’s experience in Moldova: The food, culture, history, language, the people, the wine, its relationship with Russia and the EU, what the stadium was like and the atmosphere, and plenty more!
    18:00 Patreon mailbag
    18:05 Korey Lennox: “Not sure if you’ve recorded yet or not. But, if you haven’t, would you mind talking about when and why you fell in love with United? I grew up in Virginia just outside of Washington DC. I’m 31, so when I was growing up, I remember seeing King Eric and his popped collar when I was 5 or 6 years old. That was it for me. I thought it was the coolest thing and I never looked back.”
    28:30 United Women’s opening WSL game of the season: 4-0 win over Reading - and how does WSL grow without getting the bad parts of the Premier League?
    35:20 The big question of the episode, from Patreon, Dio Turner: “Marcus Rashford is playing well but I miss the days when he'd frequently dribble past defenders. Now he seems less likely to try to dribble past defenders or he'll get dispossessed if he tries. What do you two think happened to his slalom runs through defences?”
    51:40 Youth and loan round-up (U21s, U18s, Matej Kovar and Ethan Laird)
    53:30 Patron questions - Ethan: “Haven’t got anything huge to ask, which I suppose is a good sign as the squad seems pretty settled at the minute, did just wanna ask about De Gea retaining his place on Thursday, any theories as to why that could be? Would be slightly confused if he starts again against Sheriff considering we’ve just loaned in a very capable deputy.”
    55:10 Korey Lennox: “I’m back again 🤣 Thoughts/feelings that Greenwood might return to the squad? Not sure how to feel about it.”
    56:30 Ted Popham: “With all the VAR issues, especially the clear and obvious debate. Do you think a 3 appeals per half system like American football or a rugby specific conversation with ref and video ref (i.e is there any reason I can/cannot award the try) would work better? Or a different method?”

    S8 E11: Real Sociedad (H)

    Hosts Jack Tait and Harry Robinson review United's 1-0 defeat to Real Sociedad in their Europa League opener played under a strange atmosphere after the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Jack and Harry give their thoughts on the game including the roles of Eriksen and Fred, Ronaldo and Casemiro's poor performances, the importance of Martinez, and the growth of Malacia and Dalot.
    After the review of the game, Harry Robinson sits down to interview Andy Slater, creator of the only United Women fanzine the Barmy Article, to preview the new season for the United Women team.

    S8 E10: Arsenal (h)

    S8 E10: Arsenal (h)

    Manchester United showed ruthless precision in a fixture once famous for its intensity but that for many years had declined into irrelevance. Sunday saw a 3-1 victory over Arsenal thanks to a double from Marcus Rashford, following up on his goal against Liverpool. The atmosphere at Old Trafford, primarily due to those two games, but also two wins on the road, has changed enormously. The team and the mood is unrecognisable. Harry Robinson and Jack Tait review that home win over the league leaders, give you an extensive youth and loan round-up and preview Thursday night’s match against Real Sociedad.
    In the Patreon bonus Q&A, we’ll be talking Sancho and Rashford’s chances of going to the World Cup, the chance of Maguire getting back into the team, Ronaldo starting in the Europa League, Ivan Toney and plenty more.

    S8 E9: Leicester (A)

    S8 E9: Leicester (A)

    Three wins on the bounce for Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United and 20th place seems a far-off place now. The Reds are in fifth, which matters very little - it’s only just turned from August to September. What matters are performances, good results and the mood. That mood is good.
    Join Harry Robinson and Jack Tait on the Manchester United Weekly Podcast for an immediate post-match review of United’s 1-0 win against Leicester - achieved thanks to Jadon Sancho’s first-half goal - followed by a discussion with Mirror Football’s Nathan Ridley on the U21s EFL Trophy victory at Carlisle. And finally, we discuss our latest signing, Antony, in a little more detail, before previewing Sunday's match against Arsenal where the 22-year-old Brazilian winger could make his debut.
    Enjoy the show!

    S8 E8: Southampton (a)

    S8 E8: Southampton (a)

    Manchester United win consecutive games for the first time since February and it's a first away clean sheet in nine months. That says more about the dreadfulness of the past than the positivity of the present, but it's notable nevertheless.
    Hosts Harry Robinson and Jack Tait reflect on a 1-0 victory at Southampton's St. Mary's stadium on Saturday lunchtime, focusing on a compact defence, a goal that highlights the style Erik ten Hag wants to implement, Casemiro's debut, a half-time tactical change and lots more.
    Harry and Jack also talk about the imminent arrival of Brazilian winger Antony to the club, the UEFA Europa League draw, Hannibal's loan to Birmingham City and Thursday night's match against Leicester City. Enjoy the show!
    In the bonus Q&A for Patrons, it's more detailed talk about Antony, the Europa League and whether goalkeepers should wear caps and short sleeves or stick to traditions.

Excellent all season

The Podcast has improved 10 fold. As always the insights have been spot on and their production has risen. As a Manchester United fan this has been a joy. Thank You Jack and Harry. I can’t wait for the next season to begin. Your wrap up show was the best ever. God Bless.

Enjoying the Insight

Really enjoying the hosts’ perspectives and appreciate that they give updates on the various United youth teams and the women’s team as well. On the other hand, I feel like you guys can be a little harder on the coaching staff as I feel like the team continues to underperform despite the immense talent they have and lack of strategy. The last couple of episodes you guys have been keeping them more accountable so I appreciate this recent shift. Keep up the great work!
