  • Oct 4 2022

    What is it about October? The ghouls come out to play again as Manchester United are beaten 6-3 in the derby. In 2020, it was 6-1 to Tottenham, in 2021, 5-0 to Liverpool and in 2022, this. Can we skip it this time next year? In the end, three second-half goals, a stunner from Antony and a double off the bench from Anthony Martial, reduced the humiliation of this particular Etihad trip. But only a little.


    Hosts Harry Robinson and Jack Tait review that match, analysing where Erik ten Hag got it wrong in how United set up, but also how the players let themselves and the club down again. Later in the show, there's your regular youth, loan and women's round-up, plus a preview of Thursday's trip to Nicosia.

    September draws to a close and here comes October 2022, genuinely one of the busiest months in the 120-year history of Manchester United. Nine games to come in the Premier League, UEFA Europa League and EFL Cup. First up, Manchester City at the Etihad in the 2pm Sunday kick-off.


    Today on the show, we’re previewing Sunday’s match against City with the significant helping hand of Michael Plant, journalist at Manchester World who covers the clubs from both M16 and M11.


    Michael will give us his insight into how Erik ten Hag’s first few months at United have progressed and tell us whether he’s seen any teams this season manage to nullify Erling Haaland, who has monstrously racked up the goals for our local rivals so far.


    Later in the show, Harry Robinson is joined as always by cohost Jack Tait to talk about the game in further detail as we decide on our starting XIs, tactics and look ahead to this nine-game month of October. There’ll also be a youth and women’s round-up midway through the show. Enjoy!

    With two Premier League postponements for Manchester United's game, hosts Harry Robinson and Jack Take the opportunity to answer questions from the show's patrons.


    Before diving into some fascinating subjects, Harry talks about his time in Chisinau, Moldova with a bit of reaction to the unspectacular but important win over FC Sheriff at the Zimbru Stadium. There are details of Moldovan ultras, a Napoli-supporting hostel owner, a massive wine cellar and loads more.


    To see which questions we're answering, and head straight to the ones you're most interested in, check out the timestamps below.


    TIMESTAMPS

    00:00 Introduction

    01:00 Jadon Sancho’s good finish and other quick takeaways

    03:20 Lisandro Martinez’s AR-GEN-TINA chant and the background to his surprise about it

    07:30 Harry’s experience in Moldova: The food, culture, history, language, the people, the wine, its relationship with Russia and the EU, what the stadium was like and the atmosphere, and plenty more!

    18:00 Patreon mailbag

    18:05 Korey Lennox: “Not sure if you’ve recorded yet or not. But, if you haven’t, would you mind talking about when and why you fell in love with United? I grew up in Virginia just outside of Washington DC. I’m 31, so when I was growing up, I remember seeing King Eric and his popped collar when I was 5 or 6 years old. That was it for me. I thought it was the coolest thing and I never looked back.”

    28:30 United Women’s opening WSL game of the season: 4-0 win over Reading - and how does WSL grow without getting the bad parts of the Premier League?

    35:20 The big question of the episode, from Patreon, Dio Turner: “Marcus Rashford is playing well but I miss the days when he'd frequently dribble past defenders. Now he seems less likely to try to dribble past defenders or he'll get dispossessed if he tries. What do you two think happened to his slalom runs through defences?”

    51:40 Youth and loan round-up (U21s, U18s, Matej Kovar and Ethan Laird)

    53:30 Patron questions - Ethan: “Haven’t got anything huge to ask, which I suppose is a good sign as the squad seems pretty settled at the minute, did just wanna ask about De Gea retaining his place on Thursday, any theories as to why that could be? Would be slightly confused if he starts again against Sheriff considering we’ve just loaned in a very capable deputy.”

    55:10 Korey Lennox: “I’m back again 🤣 Thoughts/feelings that Greenwood might return to the squad? Not sure how to feel about it.”

    56:30 Ted Popham: “With all the VAR issues, especially the clear and obvious debate. Do you think a 3 appeals per half system like American football or a rugby specific conversation with ref and video ref (i.e is there any reason I can/cannot award the try) would work better? Or a different method?”
