Rant Cast 259 – destination disaster on Louis’ broken bus
The fun, such as it was, couldn’t last. Manchester United’s run of four wins in five Premier League games was always a mirage, containing as it did a series of narrow victories and largely unimpressive performances. It came home to roost as Louis van Gaal’s side was thrashed at Tottenham Hotspur. The Dutchman claimed, ridiculously, that his side was “an equal” of Spurs – an equal in all but good football and scoring goals.
Ed & Paul look back on United’s humiliation in north London, which started when the team bus turned up two hours late. It is a result that places Champions League qualification in serious doubt and Louis van Gaal’s job under the microscope. There is a look ahead to United’s FA Cup quarter-final replay with West Ham United at Upton Park on Wednesday night, and the Reds home fixture with the hapless Aston Villa. Surely even Van Gaal cannot muck this one up?
