No Question About That is the leading fan-published podcast covering Manchester United. Twice a week, the podcast talks you through the latest games, news, and fan culture at the world’s best supported club. "Paul and Ed have consistently commented with intelligence and eloquence, giving a beautiful insight into the nature of contemporary football, and United in particular.” - Simon Stephens, The Guardian
Juan Matagical Performance
Well, that's one way to recover from a disastrous defeat! United recovered from the 6-1 hammering at Tottenham's hands and an early goal at St James Park to record a comfortable win. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team left it late, but goals from Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford took the reds to three much-needed points, while Juan Mata turned back the clock. Ed & Paul discuss all the fallout.
Then there's a Champions League fixture at Paris Saint Germain on Tuesday night. Can United repeat the miracles of 2019? For backers, all the week's Premier League action.
F*ck This Sh*t
Hammered by Jose Mourinho's Tottenham in the worst performance by a United side since, well, you know that day. The sickening result, together with the club's inability to manage any coherent transfer policy has Ed & Paul questioning the players, manager and leadership. One horrendous day. For backers, something about other Premier League results, as if anybody cares.
Up for the Juarabao Cup
United beat Brighton in the Carabao Cup, putting in the most comprehensive performance of the season to date. Goals from Scott McTominay, Juan Mata and Paul Pogba sealed a place in the last eight. Ed & Paul review the action and briefly look ahead to Spurs at the weekend (For a fuller preview, see our previous episode).
Maupaying the Price for Handball
United got very, very lucky, but the first three points of the Premier League campaign are now on the board thanks to Bruno Fernandes' 100th minute penalty winner. Jose Mourinho moaned, but apparently United really can do whatever they want, including scoring after the final whistle has blown. Ed & Paul enjoyed it very much!
There's also a brief look back on the midweek Carabao Cup victory over Luton and a preview of this week's rapid rematch against Brighton in the same competition. For backers, we review this week's Premier League action.
Let's not start as we mean to go on! United finished last season limping over the finish line following an outstanding series of post-lockdown results. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's policy of using a small squad eventually told, with players suffering from fatigue by the end of the campaign. Little more than a month later and a strange mix of under-prepared and over-tired players arrived back in Carrington, some with no more than 10 days rest, all having played no more than one preparatory fixture. These are some major caveats against an awful performance in losing to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday. Ed & Paul discuss (panic!)
There's a preview of the season to come and, for Patreon backers, we review Amazon's All or Nothing.
61 and Out
It's the hope that kills you, so goes the cliché. And while United will look back on defeat to Sevilla with some disappointment, especially with Romelu Lukaku and Ashley Young in Friday's final, Sunday's 2-1 loss concludes a season of some progress. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side reached three cup semi-finals and finished third in the Premier League - much better than many hoped during some dark moments in January. Ole has built a side with identity; one that scores some great goals and attacks with flair. There's more than hope in that.
On the final show of a year-long season, Ed & Paul look back on the Europa League semi-final, look forward to what United need to do over a short summer to progress, and hand out some awards! For backers, we look at the Champions League quarter and semi-finals.

Simply the best Man Utd podcast out there, and one of the best football podcasts as well. The discussion between Paul and Ed is engaging and thoughtful. They address wider social issues surrounding the club in addition to providing in depth analysis of the performances on the pitch.
Really love listening to this podcast, long may it continue.
Best United Pod out there
This is by far my favorite Manchester United podcast. The hosts do a great job of talking about the games while also sprinkling in just enough statistical analysis without putting me to sleep
United on field and off
A great podcast by a pair of dudes who talk about more than just the product on the field. They also talk a good about about the systems in place, and the political aspects of the game.
