#507. This week Ed talks to award-winning author and journalist Michael Calvin about his new book, Whose Game Is It Anyway? The book could not have come at a more prescient time, with Calvin offering a critique of the role greed has played in transforming the game and how community will always mean that the beautiful game remains the people's game. We discuss the Super League, the Glazers, and what might come next as private equity and vulture capital creeps ever deeper into the sport.No Question About That is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, YouTube, Amazon Music and all good podcast apps.

End of Season Review

#504. After more than 60 games, compressed into a short season, the 2020/21 campaign has finally ended as it begun: with United trophy-less and still searching for a return to former glories. There was progress though, we think. Ed & Paul round up the season, discuss our players of the year and enjoy some outstanding goals. There'll be some special interviews over the summer, with the regular pod back next August!No Question About That is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, YouTube, Amazon Music and all good podcast apps.

#503. The campaign ended in disappointed in the Europa League final. There has been progress this season, but United's penalty shoot-out defeat to Villareal exposed plenty of flaws in the team and in the manager. United's Plan A didn't work against a well coached opponent. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer didn't have a Plan B. Ed & Paul digest a frustrating night.No Question About That is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, YouTube, Amazon Music and all good podcast apps.

#502. United finished the league season unbeaten away from home - just the fourth time that has happened in English top flight football. Despite playing a full b-team, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team were impressive in victory at Wolves. Then Ed & Paul look ahead to Wednesday's Europa League final against Villarreal. Can United win a first trophy in three long years?
#501. On the pitch, United's mens team lose to Leicester and Liverpool amid a hectic schedule. Is the heavy workload catching up with Ole's team at just the wrong time? Off it, women's team manager Casey Stoney resigns, apparently in protest at the lack of investment by the club's Board in the team and facilities. Is there any part of the club the  Glazer family won't shaft for profit? Ed & Paul discuss, and then look forward to games against Fulham and Wolves in the week to come. For backers, the FA Cup, Premier League and major European Leagues.

#500. On the 500th episode of NQAT ... United produce another second-half comeback to secure three more points and qualification for next season's Champions League. After winning 3-1 at Aston Villa, United have now won 31 points from losing positions this season. Ed & Paul discuss victory at Villa Park, progress in the Europa League and then look forward to games against Leicester City and Liverpool this week.
#499. United's game versus Liverpool at Old Trafford was postponed after fans' protest against the Glazer family's ownership spilled onto the pitch. It'll be hard for the club to ignore supporters now, even if the inevitable spin casts protesters as "hooligans" rioting out of control. Did the protest go too far or not far enough? Ed & Paul discuss on this week's show. Also on the pod, a look back at United's demolition of Roma in the Europa League and ahead to games against the Giallorossi in Rome and then Aston Villa next weekend. Enjoy!

#498. The fallout from the now collapsed Super League continues, with the Mad King Señor Perez being, well, mad over in Madrid, Ed Woodward spinning furiously in Manchester, and City and Chelsea denying either wanted to be in the tournament in the first place. Ok lads. Meanwhile, on the football pitch United played out a draw with Leeds at Elland Road. Perhaps with one eye on Thursday's Europa League semi-final against Roma and next Sunday's tie with Liverpool. Ed & Paul discuss.

#497. Well that escalated quickly! In the 48 hours since the announcement of the Super League on Sunday night the whole shoddy, greedy, grubby edifice has fallen. First, City and Chelsea pulled out. They didn't need it, they didn't want it. Then the house of cards came crashing down on Tuesday night... and Ed Woodward resigned. Ed & Paul discuss the short-lived Super League and its legacy.

#496. This episode was recorded at 6.30pm after United beat Burnley. Events regarding the 'Super League' have moved on a little bit since we recorded. On the pitch United beat Granada and then Burnley to conclude a successful week - into the semi finals of the Europa League and then solidifying second place domestically. Off it, United are among 12 European clubs to sully 150 years of history, throwing under the bus millions of fans in the name of ever more money, with the announcement of "Super League," a new European competition designed to replace the Champions League and hoover up ever more cash. As Ajax fans once said, "Against Modern Football." Very much against it.

#495. United beat Spurs at the "Tottenham Hotspur Stadium" and José Mourinho lost the run of himself. Mark it down as a thing you absolutely love to see. United's victory further cements the team's second place in the Premier League, with qualification for the Champions League now all but guaranteed. Ed & Paul enjoy a thoroughly satisfying day. Also on the show - a look back on United's victory in Granada, ahead to the return leg on Thursday and to Burnley's visit to Old Trafford next weekend.

#494. United beat Brighton at Old Trafford in a low key return after the International break. It wasn't pretty despite United's dominance of possession, but a brilliant finish from Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood's later head won it for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men. Ed & Paul discuss, while looking forward to games against Granada and Spurs in the week to come and wondering why Ole has a problem with Mohicans. For Patreon backers, a look at the weekend's Premier League action.

#493. Victory over Milan in Italy took United into the Europa League quarter finals, but the achievement was overshadowed by defeat to Leicester in the FA Cup. It wasn't just any defeat, but a comprehensive win for the hosts who outplayed United in every part of the game. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's players may have been tired, but the manager's tactics, selection, use of substitutes and his players' performances - especially in defence - were beyond risible. Ed & Paul are not happy.Also on the show - a look at United's new shirt sponsor, TeamViewer and for backers we make fun of Jose Mourinho.

#492. Victory over David Moyes' West Ham at Old Trafford restores United to second place in the Premier League. It was an important win, but a truly uninspiring game. Did the Hammers set out to not-lose-by-too-much. Probably. Fifth place West Ham. Moyes' West Ham. Also on the show, a brief chat about last Thursday's draw with Milan at Old Trafford and what it means for next week's return at San Siro. Then a look ahead to the weekend's FA Cup tie at Leicester. And we talk about United's restructure.

#491. United win at the Etihad, again. It's becoming all so predictable. Billed as the battle between United's away record and City's 21-match winning run, it was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side that emerged victorious. Glorious. Ed & Paul discuss. Also on the show, a look ahead to United's match with Milan in the Europa League and a West Ham in the Premier League. For backers, a round-up of the week's action in the league.
Hands Up!

#490. United have scored just once in the past seven games against a 'big six' side and that was a penalty. It's becoming a pattern. Mind you that list includes Arsenal so perhaps that stat isn't worth the chip paper it's printed on. While Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team was cautious in securing a draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, the game ended in some controversy with United being denied an obvious penalty for Callum Hudson-Odoi's handball. Ed & Paul discuss.
#489. It wasn't quite as comfortable as the scoreline suggested, with United struggling for fluency against Newcastle at Old Trafford, but victory has restored some momentum. Ed & Paul look back on United's 3-1 victory, together with last Thursday's Europa League clash against Real Sociedad. Then there's a preview of the Europa return leg and Sunday's trip to Stamford Bridge.
#488. United reached the FA Cup quarter-final after a drab victory over David Moyes' West Ham at Old Trafford. The Hammers set out to spoil the game, recording just three shots in two hours that none of us will get back. With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer making some changes, United lacked fluency against an opposition that set out to secure a draw in a game that had to provide a winner.

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...

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.
