Rant Cast 183 – (not) sacked in the morning
On this week’s Rant Cast Ed & Paul look back on another disastrous week for Manchester United. David Moyes’ side may have won at Crystal Palace in the Premier League, but defeat to Olympiakos in Athens might just have ended the Reds’ season in February.
United’s 2-0 victory at Selhurst Park was earned with not only a fine Wayne Rooney goal, but a change in style that saw both Adnan Januzaj and Juan Mata start in a narrow formation. It turned out to be a short-lived experiment, with Moyes’ outfit returning in Athens to methods tried and unfortunately trusted by the Scot. Olympiakos’ fast-paced attacking on the break proved to be far too much for United, leaving the Reds needing to win by three at Old Trafford in mid-March.
Also on the pod this week: your questions, David Moyes’ future, Rooney’s new contract, and a look ahead to the summer transfer window!
