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.

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 Clarets.

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 hear a 20 minute chat about the television programmes of Aaron Sorkin because that’s how we do.

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 ever, there’s plenty listener questions and for Patreons there’s a long discussion about podcasts (other than Rant Cast)!

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 was he kidding; this was the Reds’ best performance of the season to date. Read More

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 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.
