    Steady trends, “good” form, and executive changes

    Steady trends, “good” form, and executive changes

    New Fergie Fledglins!

    Colin and Pauly are back to talk about another tight win for Manchester United, a 1-0 victory over Luton Town, and why this latest 1-0 win is as telling as the other close wins of the Erik ten Hag era. They unpack some of the noticeable trends in United’s league form since the current boss took over, and why the recent “good” form might not be as nice as the current spin on it would indicate.

    They also go into United’s upcoming fixtures, some of the ongoing issues with absences, injuries, and holes in the squad, as well as briefly look at early changes at the executive level with Sir Jim Ratcliffe on the way.

    Derby disaster and crisis mode gauging

    Derby disaster and crisis mode gauging

    New Fergie Fledglings podcast from Colin and Pauly.

    Together they unpack a really poor performance in the 3-0 defeat to noisy neighbors Manchester City, and unpack the management, executives, and personnel situation in what is looking like the start of another crisis period.

    They also discuss the incident involving Alejandro Garnacho's deleted tweet featuring a racist trope, and the potential for a suspension.

    They then end the podcast reflecting on Sir Bobby Charlton and his legendary status in the club and football in general.

Glory, Glory, Man United

Colin’s at the wheel for current and wide-ranging discussions about all things Manchester United. Well worth a listen for all United fans and football fans generally!

Push Fake News

They put out stories about Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogbas ‘injury’ before Bournemouth game even though I literally broke down for them that it was a parody story. No tweet back, nothing- just got to watch them show they will lie to get clicks. Poor reporting, not worthy of the title of ‘journalists’ or ‘analysts’ or ‘insiders’

HooliganSR ,

Almost there.

Good podcast but please fix the sound quality, a simple soundboard and mic can go a long way. Missed a few episodes bc the guest cut out so much as well. Love the content though!!!
