On this week’s Rant Cast we look back at Manchester United’s defeat to, but victory over, Ajax in the Europa League at Old Trafford on Thursday night. The Reds will now meet Athletic Bilbao in the round of 16 after the Spaniards’ away goals win over Lokomotiv Moscow at the same stage. We ask what Paul Pogba’s omission from the squad means for the youngster’s future.
We preview United’s visit to Norfolk this Sunday to play Norwich City for the first time since since a 2-0 loss in April 2005. Can Sir Alex Ferguson’s side maintain its Premier League challenge against Paul Lambert’s high flying Canaries?
We ponder Ferguson – what kind of role should the legendary United manager have post retirement and what affect will he have on the new man, and who should that new man be? And, finally, we talk football finance after United published half year results.
