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 […]

Rant Cast 278 – Drop It Like It’s Hot  

In this week's show Ed and Paul meet to discuss Manchester United's trip to Northampton and the comfortable 4-1 win against Champions Leicester City. United looked like a different team at Old Trafford on Saturday, for no obvious reason that anyone could work out. They offeran in-depth preview of United's game against Zorya Luhansk on Thursday—or at least Ed tells us all where they play their home games—and look forward to the visit of Mark Hughes' stuttering Stoke City. For Patreons there's a long chat about the 2005 Ashes series and the special monthly Q&A edition. Rant Cast has survived on your donations for the past seven years.

Rant Cast 277 – the “actually we’re terrible again” edition  

After the joy and optimism of August, Manchester United have crashed into September like some sort of thing crashing into a thing it definitely should not have crashed into. Ed and Paul convene to reluctantly discuss three defeats on the bounce for Jose Mourinho's men. The subject of Wayne Rooney inevitably comes up, as does chat about Pep out tactic-ing Jose, the abject defeat at Feyenoord and the omnishambles at Watford. In a profoundly against type turn of events, Ed is pretty upbeat whilst Paul is generally miserable about the whole affair. There are listener questions, music chat on the Patreon bonus content and a very special playout track from one of the very first Friends of the Rant Cast, Awate.

276a – Talking with the Enemy (Well, Rob Pollard)  

With the derby coming up, we decided to record a little bonus episode, chatting with Bleacher Report's Manchester City Correspondent and Manchester Evening News journalist Rob Pollard about the City perspective on the game. We talk Pep, obviously, and in spite of Paul's best efforts to keep the City love in to a minimum, Rob waxes lyrical about the career of Yaya Toure. Rob is very fair minded on United and has interesting things to say about the rivalry from a City perspective and working on a Sports Desk at the global epicentre of football.

276 – José vs Pep, part XII  

Another international week, another series of pointless World Cup qualifiers. Another crap England performance? Oh yeah! Injuries? You betchya! Players knackered after tens of thousands of miles on a plane. Sure thing! But at least there's the derby to look forward to... Ed & Paul look forward to José Mourinho vs Pep Guardiola once again as United faces City at Old Trafford. The Spaniard has the edge in the head-to-head record, but whose team has settled better into the new season? As always, there's plenty of listener questions and bonus content for Patreon backers.

Rant Cast 275 – Mourinho Time  

Feels good, doesn't it? Victory. Not just any victory though, but one achieved with a goal deep into 'Fergie Time'. The players loved it, the fans loved it. Even Jose Mourinho seemed to love it. In this episode Ed & Paul look back on United's win over Hull City at the KC Stadium; one that came through Marcus Rashford's 92nd winner. With no game next week, there's a look ahead to the international break, and your questions. Bonus content for Patreon backers, includes an additional 30 minute Q&A.

Rant Cast 273 – the ‘we’re quite good’ edition  

Comfortable victory over a decent side? Check! Two goals from new star striker? Check Check! Outstanding performance from world-class, world-record purchase? Check! Check! Check! In this episode Ed & Paul look back on United's victory over Southampton at Old Trafford, including Paul Pogba's second United debut, Zlatan's double and LOTS of confidence gained.

Rant Cast 273 – back in business  

Back to that winning feeling. Last season Manchester United collapsed at Bournemouth - it seemed to say much about Louis van Gaal's team. No longer, with José Mourinho's side returning to Dean Court to seal a comfortable win, although not one that always brought back the style. That time will come, but for now the Portuguese has two victories from two competitive matches. Ed & Paul look back on United's opening Premier League match, look forward to Paul Pogba's return against Southampton this Friday and take your questions. There's bonus content for Patreon backers!

Rant Cast 272 – #PogCash  

Same old United, always winning - at Wembley. José Mourinho's team returned to the capital just 78 days after collecting the FA Cup to bag the Community Shield with victory over Leicester City. Much has changed in the interim: new manager, new faces, and a new belief that the dark times of the past three seasons are now over. Ed & Paul review United's performance at Wembley, and look forward to the new campaign proper, which begins against Bournemouth at Dean Court next weekend. There's a discussion about United's latest move in the transfer market, for Paul Pogba, your questions answered, and bonus content (for Patreon backers!)

Rant Cast 271 – the season begins!  

Summer's gone, so sang the Boo Radleys. Not a few weeks since the final Euro 2016 ball was kicked and here we are gearing up for the start of the new campaign. Ed & Paul return with a review of Manchester United's pre-season efforts, a look at the evolving squad under José Mourinho, and a preview of this weekend's Community Shield against Leicester City at Wembley.

Euro Cast – la fin  

It's over. The longest, biggest and most negative (?) European Championships in history finished with Portugal, minus a hobbling Cristiano Ronaldo, beating France in Paris. Glory for Ronnie and Nani, tears for the French - Patrice Evra, Morgan Schneiderlin and Anthony Martial included. All of that and more on the final Euro Cast!

Euro Cast – doing the Zaza  

There's a 1,000 ways to leave your lover, but even more to miss a penalty. Italy and Germany went at it hammer and tongs for 120 minutes of enthralling Euro 2016 quarter-final action - only to produce one of the lowest quality (and most entertaining) penalty shoot-outs in history. Rant Euro Cast covers this and the rest of the quarter-final actions - and looks forward to two semi-finals that will include, miraculously, Wales. All of that plus your questions, a look at two significant incoming transfers at Manchester United, and Ryan Giggs' departure after 29 years at the club. Enjoy!

Euro Cast: Home Nations REMAIN in the Tournament  

On the day the UK goes to the polls, the Euro Cast looks back at the thrills and spills involved in major nations trying desperately not to go out of Europe. Paul and Ed talk through each of round of 16 fixtures, chatting about how each of those teams performed in the group stages. They take a look at France's underperformance, Wales making the Euro Cast preview episode look shoddy and ill-informed, Icelandic commentary and why Roy Hodgson really, really, REALLY should play Marcus Rashford. All of that plus your questions and the chance to give away a superb Cal Gildart print while discussing the tournament's funniest moments. Enjoy!
