Rant Cast 130 – comeback kings
Rant Cast this week looks back at Manchester United’s latest comeback victory as Sir Alex Ferguson’s side triumphed at Villa Park. How many more times will the Reds concede only to snatch a late victory? We talk Javier Hernández – has the little Mexican emerged from a ‘difficult second season’ to become a key man in United’s charge towards the Premier League title?
Also on this week, we talk financials, with Q1 results coming out. For the first time since the Glazer family took control of the club in 2005 United’s gross debt dips below £400 million. It’s only taken £550 million wasted on debt repayments and other costs to take debt to a “manageable” level!
Finally, we take your Twitter questions, and preview United’s trip to Norwich City and the European tie with Galatasaray next week.
