Miserable and predictable, Manchester United’s away form meant it was little surprise that a jammy win over Watford was followed by a disheartening defeat at the Hawthorns. Ed & Paul discuss both games, though they failed to mention that the Hawthorns is the stadium highest above sea level in the country.
Louis van Gaal gets hammered, as—for some reason—does Wayne Rooney. Juan Mata’s ridiculousness is cursed, but hypocritically, ridiculousness is thoroughly embraced when Ed & Paul answer your questions.

There are previews of the Liverpool and West Ham games to come, though they mostly involve the sound of nails being frantically bitten as the season threatens to come totally off the rails.

If you love the show you can show your appreciation by leaving a small tip and a review on your platform of preference

Was surprised to see that the philosophy doesn’t cover playing with 10 men.

Two losses coming up. Served with a side of Philosophy.

The appetizer served up at Anfield today was a van Gaal speciality….

I honestly had dreams of LvG turning around the United ship this season up until December, but the loss to Sunderland was the drop. Get rid of this absolutely unimaginative and negative management style. Give Giggs a chance to fail rather than watch this slow-motion-worse-than-cholesterol-blocking-lard-molasses-shit-sandwich-of-a-Philosophy /rant

I actually think we’ll win against Liverpool. Van Gaal or the players whichever way you look at it seem to pull something out sporadically; enough to keep Ed hesitating. We’ll win a spectacular 5-0 aggregate, and then lose to FC Basel in the quarters.

West Ham: if any team has the know how to kill of Bilic’s attacking football and grind out a numbing 0-0 at home it’s Van Gaal’s United!

You 2 talk about stats way to much. Should be talking about the slow boring no risk style of play. The decision making has not been to bad. The attacking players are doing brilliant considering they touch the ball in an attacking position 3 times a game. And carrick isn’t finished. He isn’t afraid to pass it forward with quality but van gaal just wants it side to side risk free. He has to go, I’m a Manchester lad living in oz and getting up at 4am to watch this shite isn’t worth it any more. First time I’ve listened to this podcast some good points but talk about the football more less stats unless it’s a relevant stat

How about you set up a podcast and record 255 of them. Then you can talk about whatever you like!
