#704 Victory over Luton followed a now familiar pattern, with Erik ten Hag's side unable to produce a controlled performance despite scoring twice in the opening minutes. Rasmus Hojlund's double gave United the best possible start, but slowly Luton got back into the game and came close to pulling off an unlikely draw. Ed & Dan dig into another curious performance. Then there's further movement in the backroom, with reports that United are looking to hire both Dan Ashworth and Jason Wilcox into a revamped football operations department.00:00 Luton 1, United 205:00 United's Performance and Style of Play10:00 Ten Hag's End Goal13:00 Bruno Fernandes19:00 Raphael Varane's Performance23:00 Luton's Performance25:00 Kobbie Mainoo27:00 Ross Barkley's Improvement32:00 Harry Maguire's Performance34:00 Referee Decisions and VAR39:00 Hojlund's Brilliant Goals42:00 United's Improved Goal Scoring47:00 Negotiations and Speculations on Backroom Staff49:00 The Complexity of Football Contracts51:00 Secrets in Football52:00 Dan Ashworth's Role55:00 Anecdote about John Murtough's Mistake in Not Signing Harland58:00 Tintin and Castifiore Get It OnIf you are interested in supporting the show and accessing exclusive bonus episodes, check out our Patreon page. No Question About That is available on YouTube, Apple, Spotify, Amazon and all podcast apps.

#703 United score late to beat Aston Villa at Villa Park. It was no vintage performance from Ten Hag's team, but once again Scott McTominay scored a crucial goal. With United now just six points off the Champions League places, are Ten Hag's team coming into some form at just the right time? Ed & Dan discuss victory in Birmingham and then look forward to next weekend's game against Luton.

#701. United secure a comfortable victory over David Moyes' West Ham at Old Trafford. Is this finally the turning point? Two goals from Alejandro Garnacho and another from Rasmus Hojlund set United up for a crucial three points. But will Lisandro Martinez injury cast a shadow over a decent performance? Ed & Dan discuss all the fallout.

#700. It's normally the worst game of the season, but somehow United v Wolves turned into a barnstormer, with Kobbie Mainoo enforcing his growing reputation as one of the finest young players in the country. Ed & Tom review a chaotic fixture, praise Mainoo, and ask whether Erik ten Hag's team has finally turned a corner.

#696. United draw an entertaining and often chaotic game against Spurs at Old Trafford. More than the result, it was notable for the first appearance for some time from Lisandro Martinez, with Casemiro on the bench, and another goal for Rasmus Højlund. But did Erik ten Hag get the tactics right?

#691. Defeat at West Ham increases the pressure on Erik ten Hag as we approach the end of the year. It was yet another pathetic showing from the reds. Perhaps there is hope on the horizon though, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe's INEOS Group completing a 25% acquisition of the club.

It was also the 12th defeat in all competitions this season. Erik ten Hag's job is on the line, but can United even afford to fire him. What. A.

(Probably by losing to Bayern, Liverpool, West Ham and Villa next, but that's a whole other story).

#686. Defeat at Newcastle in another sobering match for United and manager Erik ten Hag. This wasn't just another Premier League loss, but a 1-0 battering.

Really enjoying the content and tone. The politics is context and I think it's absolutely necessary. Thank you for the regularity too.

The show has descended into a bi weekly lecture on intersectionality and general woke bullshit.. Ed and Paul used to have an everyday fan point of view for years but the last few seasons they have decided to virtual signal the shit out of a once great podcast while infantilizing black and female players..

When do you think Ed and Paul will figure out that people who subscribe to a Manchester United podcast don't want to hear about politics? Otherwise we would just subscribe to a political podcast?

I've been listening to NQAT or what I know as The Rant Cast on and off for over a decade now. The chat about United is mostly good and informative, however the divergence in to politics has increased as the years have gone on. The typical labels of calling anyone who challenges Ed and Paul's views as racist, sexist, bigots, to name but a few have become tiresome over time. In the latest pod there was a sizeable amount of time spent talking politics over previewing the Manchester Derby.

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...

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.
