The last time Manchester United faced Saint-Etienne the Red Army had a penchant for smashing up European cities and the Cup Winners Cup was still a thing. The glory days, the 1970s. Time has moved on and although Reds will behave far better at Old Trafford on Thursday and in France next week, the club is still participating in second rate European tournaments. Plus ça change

Also on the pod this week Ed & Paul look back on United’s solid victory over Watford at Old Trafford, with the Reds back in the hunt for Champions League qualification. There’s the usual range of questions from listeners, a preview of the aforementioned game against Les Verts, and the FA Cup fixture with Blackburn Rovers. For Patreon backers: Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Some of us did see St Etienne at Old Trafford in 1977. The game was broadcast on two giant black and white tv screens situated on the pitch. You said the game was played at Fratton Park, it was actually played at Home Park, Plymouth.
