Rant Cast 146 – Ronald-oh

March 8, 2013 Tags: Rant Cast 3 comments

After two weeks of conspicuous absence, regular presenters Ed and Paul return with this week’s Rant Cast. On the show this week we look back on Manchester United’s matches with Queens Park Rangers, Norwich City and Real Madrid.

In London a stunning goal by Rafael da Silva helped United to a comfortable win at Loftus Road. Meanwhile, a burst of late goals sealed a healthy 4-0 victory over Norwich at Old Trafford.

Yet, celebrations over a substantial lead in the Premier League were brought to a halt, with Real Madrid winning 2-1 at Old Trafford on Tuesday night. Did referee Cuneyt Cakir’s controversial dismissal of winger Nani end United’s hopes in Europe for another season?

We take all your Twitter questions, give away a fine competition prize from China Town Branch and, finally, look forward to United’s FA Cup quarter-final tie with Chelsea at Old Trafford this weekend.

Where the bloody hell have you been then, that’s what I want to know.

Have missed the Podcast, it’s always a joy.

Thank you and Up the Reds.

We never were going to beat Madrid though we’re we? We never beat them and all it took was a call and we lost our minds. At home. With a lead. Champions of Europe do not do that.

Still a shit shit call though, but why as soon as it happened did I call for my check?

Elsewhere I am over Wellbeck. A striker who does not score.

I think if you read what people who worked with Keane as a manager have to say you see that he was probably being honest.
He was totally unrealistic in his expectations of players and from what people said you just could not please the guy or get on with him. Similar reasons as to why he stopped playing for Ireland and his falling out with Fergie. At first players responded to discipline and the new manager but then they turned against him because he was so unreasonable.
So I do think that was his honest opinion.
