Welcome back to Rant Cast. After a long summer break your favourite Manchester United podcast returns with a full review of the summer – United’s inactivity in the transfer market, Wayne Rooney’s shenanigans and the pre-season tour to Asia.
It has been one of the most dramatic summers in the club’s long history, with Sir Alex Ferguson stepping down in April to be replaced by David Moyes. Yet the new manager has encountered significant frustration, with a series of seemingly failed bids for central midfielders. But have Moyes and the new United executive vice chairman Ed Woodward been culpable in an embarrassing set of market gaffes?
On the theme of Old Trafford’s bean counters the squad flew more than 25,000 miles touring Asia and Australia. It hasn’t been a wholly successful tour on the pitch, although three young players stood out.
With preview the season, including some predictions for the campaign ahead. Finally, we look forward to Sunday’s Community Shield match with Championship side Wigan Athletic at Wembley.
