Rant Cast 133 – seeking a defence

On this week’s shorter-than-usual Rant Cast regular presenters Ed and Paul look back on Manchester United’s dysfunctional victory over Reading at Madjeski – a game that offered one of the worst defensive performances in Sir Alex Ferguson’s 26 year reign at Old Trafford. Still, with United top of the Premier League, whose complaining?

Recording ahead of the fixture with CFR Cluj, we also look forward to Sunday’s derby against Manchester City at Eastlands. After the blues beat United twice in the Premier League last season can Ferguson’s team find a semblance of self respect – and revenge? Finally, we take your Twitter questions and discuss Ferguson’s support for Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

    Klopp could be interesting – especially if he does well in the CL this year, he could have a similar résumé to the one Fergie had when he took over. He’s probably not ready to leave Dortmund yet as well, which allows Fergie to have another year unlike a potential Guardiola/Mourinho take over.
