Episodes

Rant Cast 298 – The Sergio Romero Special  

Three appearances for Manchester United’s Argentinian No. 2 and three wins, with only one unlikely wondergoal conceded. Is the erstwhile World Cup finalist a contender for United’s No. 1 shirt? No. Obviously not. Nevertheless, Ed & Paul look back over a week a half which featured three wins and progress in two competitions. There’s an […]

Rant Cast 297 – on obscure European sides from the 1970s  

The last time Manchester United faced Saint-Etienne the Red Army had a penchant for smashing up European cities and the Cup Winners Cup was still a thing. The glory days, the 1970s. Time has moved on and although Reds will behave far better at Old Trafford on Thursday and in France next week, the club […]

Rant Cast 296 – Foxes Outfoxed  

Victory over Leicester City. That makes United the defacto champions, right? The Reds were back to winning ways with a comfortable win at the King Power Stadium, but it came just days after another disappointing home draw, this time against Hull City. Ed & Paul take the usual mix of questions from listeners, talk about […]

Rant Cast 295 – Transfer Deadline Day Special (Ahem)  

  Okay, we’ll level with you, neither Ed nor Paul mentioned Transfer Deadline Day once during the recording of this podcast. But they did mention United’s loss against Hull City, that nonetheless saw the Red Devils through to a Wembley final, and the joyous 4-0 demolition of Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup. There is […]

Rant Cast 294 – can’t do it on a mild Saturday in Stoke  

In this week’s pod Ed & Paul look back on United’s draw with Stoke City at the Bet365 Stadium. Despite dominating the game, the Reds needed a dramatic late equaliser for the second game in succession. Where now for José Mourinho’s side? That game brought up Wayne Rooney’s 250th goal for the club to take the Scouser […]

Rant Cast 293 – Route one? What a Klopp-out!  

In this week’s pod Ed & Paul look back on a dramatic, entertaining, if low-quality match against the old enemy Liverpool. The Reds’ winning run came to an end during a score draw at Old Trafford, but did José Mourinho’s side deserve more than that? In six games against the top six this season Mourinho’s team […]

Rant Cast 292 – All we do is win  

Ed & Paul revel in another two United wins, worry a little about the impending doom facing both the World Cup and, well, the world in general, and preview the Liverpool game. There are a ton of listener questions, an argument about the merits of Matteo Darmian and an (almost) entirely positive conversation about Wayne Rooney. […]

Rant Cast 291 – The Mike Phelan appreciation society  

It’s 2017. New year, same old story: United just keep on winning. In the past week José Mourinho’s side beat Middlesbrough at Old Trafford with a comeback of Fergusonian proportions, and gained a somewhat fortunate victory at the Olympic Stadium over West Ham United. That’s seven on the trot for one of the country’s most […]

Rant Cast 290 – David Moyes’ Red and White Army.  

In the last Rant Cast of 2016 Ed & Paul celebrate the fact that David Moyes manages someone else and that Manchester United beat them 3-1. They wax lyrical about Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s majestic scorpion kick, Paul Pogba’s midfield performance and just generally celebrate the fact that for now at least, United seem to be good again. […]

Rant Cast 289 – The 2016 Winter Non-Demonimational Festival of Your Choosing Special  

Another week, another pair of wins for José Mourinho’s all-conquering Red Army. Or something. Ed & Paul look back on victory against Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion, and  forward to Sunderland on Boxing Day, while shaking their heads slowly at the thought that anyone ever thought it was a good idea to give David […]

Rant Cast 288 – two wins in a row collectors’ edition special  

For the first time in a long time, Ed & Paul get to look back on two United wins. They run the rule over the Red Devils’ win over Zorya Luhansk in a very cold Odessa and over Tottenham Hotspur at an altogether more temperate Old Trafford. Things are looking a lot rosier than they have […]

Rant Cast 287 – United the very stoppable football machine  

Manchester United continue to confuse. After a dazzling performance in the League Cup, much duller fare was served up at Goodison Park. Ed & Paul look back on another week of no one really knowing where Jose Mourinho’s side are at right now.   Additionally, Paul is joined by writer and filmmaker Carl Anka to […]

Rant Cast 286 – no medicine but hope  

What to make of Manchester United? Handsome victory over Feyenoord in the Europa League followed by yet another deeply frustrating home draw with West Ham in the Premier League. The domestic result leaves United 11 points behind the league leaders, with qualification for next season’s Champions League all but a rapidly fading dream. Ed & […]

Rant Cast 285 – Never Gunner let you down  

Another game, another solid home performance in the Premier League, another draw. It’s becoming a pattern. José Mourinho’s side performed well against Arsenal at the weekend, but a failure to take chances and the Gunners‘ late goal means that the Reds have dropped six points in the past three home league games. Ed & Paul […]

Rant Cast 284 – it’s the wall between us, José  

It’s international week so very little football of consequence is going on. In other news José Mourinho eviscerated two of his players while planning the sale of, perhaps, half-a-dozen others. Good work. Oh, and there’s a game against Arsenal at the weekend! There’s a preview of United’s match against the Gunners on Saturday and a […]

Rant Cast 283 – pretty sh*tty city  

Was José Mourinho’s side much better or Swansea City the worst team Manchester United has faced this season? Either way the Reds gained three absolutely vital points in Wales, Zlatan Ibrahimovic two goals and Paul Pogba a worldie strike. For once, supporters went home happy! United’s win in Wales was in stark contrast to the […]

Rant Cast 282 – shots fired  

José Mourinho’s side took 37 shots against Burnley at Old Trafford and failed to score. THIRTY SEVEN. Zlatan Ibrahimovic was responsible for a good chunk of them. Ed & Paul discuss the misfiring Swede and United’s failure to keep pace with rivals at the top of the Premier League after the disappointing home draw with the […]

Rant Cast 281 – Jose’s Brought His Bus  

This week Ed and Paul look back on United’s thrilling 0-0 draw with Liverpool at Anfield and debate just how parked Jose’s bus was. They revel in the 4-1 (or was it 5-0?) win over Fenerbahce, glory in Robin’s return and look forward to MASSIVE games against Chelsea and Manchester City. Patreon backers will also […]

Rant Cast 280 – Anfield calling  

No games this week – well none of note – with international week getting in the way of Rant Cast’s main weekly content: Manchester United! Plenty of football to look forward to though, with United travelling to face a resurgent Liverpool at Anfield and then hosting Fenerbache in the Europa League at Old Trafford. As […]

Rant Cast 279 – frustration, a noun  

It’s the hope that kills you, right? Yet, the frustration in scoring just once from 24 shots at goal is not that Manchester United failed to beat Stoke City at Old Trafford, but that José Mourinho’s side should have won by a cricket score. United created “no sustained pressure,” claimed Stoke manager Mark Hughes. Who […]
