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.

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.

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.

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.

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 and Paul have hosted Rant Cast since 2009, 265 episodes and counting of high-quality football content, with dodgy jokes and, according to some, an anti-Wayne Rooney agenda. Whether the latter is true is open to your interpretation, but one thing is true: Rant Cast’s commitment to an hour-a-week of chat, for your pleasure, direct to your iPhone (or listening platform of choice). Now here’s a chance to show your appreciation!
