On the main pod, it's a cliché, but let's run with it anyway - that was a Manchester United way to win.

Punch the air with delight, it feels good to talk about a victorious United!

United returned to Premier League action after the international break and put in another low-key performance.

There's also a look ahead to Tuesday night's crucial Champions League fixture against İstanbul Başakşehir and for backers a look back on the weekend's Premier League action.
The US elections loom large in the conversation as Donald Trump refuses to leave office and his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, holds a press conference next to a dildo shop. Go figure. On the pitch, another wild swing in Manchester United's performance. Following defeat to Arsenal and Istanbul last week, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side secured a comfortable victory over Everton. After conceding first, United came back to score three fine goals and control the game. Why can't Ole get consistent performances out of this side? Ed & Paul discuss.
Manchester United lost to İstanbul Başakşehir with one of the most comically poor defensive displays of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's managerial reign. Of any managerial reign. Just what has Ole been coaching all these months? The defeat places United in a more difficult Champions League position than should be the case. Ed & Paul discuss all the fallout and look forward to United's game against Everton at the weekend.

We'll always have Paris, it was said during the darker times last season, but apparently it's a regular occurrence after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side won victory at Parc des Princes for the second time in as many years.

Well, that's one way to recover from a disastrous defeat! United recovered from the 6-1 hammering at Tottenham's hands and an early goal at St James Park to record a comfortable win.

Hammered by Jose Mourinho's Tottenham in the worst performance by a United side since, well, you know that day. The sickening result, together with the club's inability to manage any coherent transfer policy has Ed & Paul questioning the players, manager and leadership. One horrendous day. For backers, something about other Premier League results, as if anybody cares.
United beat Brighton in the Carabao Cup, putting in the most comprehensive performance of the season to date. Goals from Scott McTominay, Juan Mata and Paul Pogba sealed a place in the last eight.

United got very, very lucky, but the first three points of the Premier League campaign are now on the board thanks to Bruno Fernandes' 100th minute penalty winner.

Ed & Paul enjoyed it very much!There's also a brief look back on the midweek Carabao Cup victory over Luton and a preview of this week's rapid rematch against Brighton in the same competition.

Let's not start as we mean to go on! United finished last season limping over the finish line following an outstanding series of post-lockdown results. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's policy of using a small squad eventually told, with players suffering from fatigue by the end of the campaign. Little more than a month later and a strange mix of under-prepared and over-tired players arrived back in Carrington, some with no more than 10 days rest, all having played no more than one preparatory fixture. These are some major caveats against an awful performance in losing to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday. Ed & Paul discuss (panic!)There's a preview of the season to come and, for Patreon backers, we review Amazon's All or Nothing.

It's the hope that kills you, so goes the cliché. And while United will look back on defeat to Sevilla with some disappointment, especially with Romelu Lukaku and Ashley Young in Friday's final, Sunday's 2-1 loss concludes a season of some progress. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side reached three cup semi-finals and finished third in the Premier League - much better than many hoped during some dark moments in January. Ole has built a side with identity; one that scores some great goals and attacks with flair. There's more than hope in that.On the final show of a year-long season, Ed & Paul look back on the Europa League semi-final, look forward to what United need to do over a short summer to progress, and hand out some awards! For backers, we look at the Champions League quarter and semi-finals.

Europe. Britain may be separated from the continent by a body of water, but United will be heading to the Europa League final eight mini tournament in Germany next week anyway. It was inevitable after United's 5-0 victory over LASK in Austria back in March, of course, but the Reds made sure with a hard-fought win at Old Trafford on Wednesday night. Ed & Paul mull over a forgettable game, look ahead to next week's fixtures in Cologne, and talk transfers and contracts!

At one stage this season Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team was in 14th place in the Premier League, far closer to the relegation zone than earning a place in the Champions League.

It was a one-off, but are there longer term consequences and questions that result? Ed & Paul discuss.For backers, we review the week's football.
United delivered when it mattered against Crystal Palace on Thursday night, but it was much harder work than the 2-0 scoreline might suggest. Sublime goals from Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial earned United three very critical points. Ed & Paul look back on all the action, discuss the fallout from Manchester City's CAS ruling, and look ahead to the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea at Wembley.

very obvious agenda against Shaw which is so poor of you. clearly our whole team is suffering ever since his injury and you are trying to target him as a weak link. it must be personal as otherwise you don't really know football...

If these two stuck to football instead of speaking of American politics then this will be a much better podcast.

When they discuss United it's a quality listen, but too often Ed wants to be divisive and always go on about how some fans are idiots, racists, bigots. etc etc.... If it happened once then it wouldn't be a problem, but Ed is probably one of the worst hosts I've ever listened too. Paul is quality and often looks for the good in situations.
