Saturday, 2 March 1991. Manchester United 0 – 2 Everton.
Saturday, 27 April 2014. Manchester United 4 – 0 Norwich City.
More than 23 separate two key dates in Ryan Giggs’ career – days that the Welshman will surely never forget. Two decades ago a slight young man made his club début as a substitute in a sorry home defeat to Everton. Last Saturday Giggs walked out as club manager, albeit on an interim basis. It was, he said, the proudest day in a quarter-century associated with the club.
On this week’s Rant Cast Ed & Paul look back on Giggs’ début as United manager, assessing a performance that appeared liberated after months with players locked in a cycle of negativity. We discuss what might come next for United, with Dutchman Louis van Gaal favourite for the top job at Old Trafford. And we look at the potential scenarios in the coming weeks, with the ‘Class of ’92’ still keen to secure a place alongside whomever is leading the new regime.
Also on the show: transfer market rumours, Champions League semi-finals, and Gary Neville’s strange views, and we look forward to United’s upcoming matches against Sunderland and Hull City at Old Trafford.
