9: talkSPORT Interview: Dale reflects on Mourinho and Pogba feud

In the early hours of Thursday morning, we appeared on talkSPORT to offer some insight on the showdown between Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba. The station has generously sent over an audio file of the brief segment for Stretty News to share. We just wanted to talk about football and Manchester United, but these headlines are not going away and they shouldn’t go ignored. But, as situations go, this is getting in the way of what matters most. And, that’s the club....


8: Liam Miller Tribute - featuring Roy Keane and Ryan Giggs

Manchester United, Republic of Ireland and Celtic legends pay tribute to fallen hero, Liam Miller, at Pairc Ui Chaoimh. Amid the pain of loss, there were tears of emotional pride as the Miller family marvelled at world football rallying to honour Liam's life. In the autumn sunshine, I travelled to Co. Cork and met local Dj Stevie Grainer, United We Stand editor Andy Mitten and Dublin based photographer Peter O'Doherty. Topics such as the music scene between Cork and Manchester are discussed,...


7: Champions League Special - Can Man Utd go all the way?

Manchester United kick-off their Champions League campaign against Swiss side Young Boys this week. Dale is joined by Paul and Jonathan on this week's Strettycast. Philip featured throughout but was rudely interrupted on a number of occasions by super agent Jorge Mendes, who has it in for our podcast since last season... It would be crazy to write off our chances just yet, although it's unlikely United will go all the way in this season's competition but the least the lads want to see is...


6: Interview: Football coach Gary Curneen on Jose Mourinho

Dale is delighted to be joined by football coach and author Gary Curneen, originally from Northern Ireland but currently working in the United States as assistant manager to the Chicago Red Stars. Curneen is a United fan, who studied Mourinho's management at a Real Madrid coaching event in Los Angeles some years ago. He tells us about the influence Mourinho has had on his career and how he's still one of the very business in football. We also take a look at how football has evolved down the...


5: How many players has Mourinho improved at Man Utd?

Manchester United got back to winning ways with a convincing 2-0 win over Burnley, who are having a disaster season thus far and probably face a relegation fight unless things pick up. Dale is joined this week by Raman and Mike to discuss the game and other matters ahead of the international break. Marouane Fellaini put in a solid display against The Clarets, therefore, deserves praise and Luke Shaw continued his great form to win Manchester United Player of the Month for August. Worryingly,...


4: Pogba plays like he doesn't want to be at Man Utd

Manchester United suffered a 3-0 defeat at home to Tottenham Hotspur on Monday night. Dale is joined by Jonathan, Philip and Raman to discuss the game and where it all went wrong. Credit is given where deserved: Luke Shaw, Jesse Lingard and Fred. But criticism is also handed out to Paul Pogba, who is treating his Manchester United career as if it no longer matters. Well, it does. To us. And, members of the panel have had enough of his lacklustre displays in a Red shirt. Apologies for the...


3: Fight for the shirt or do one | Brighton review

Manchester United suffered a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday. To make matters worse, only five players acknowledged the fans are travelling all the way to Brighton. The rest of the players, who hid at the full-time whistle, ought to be ashamed of themselves. While they're not entirely to blame, we discuss the root of these problems at Manchester United on the podcast and get A LOT off our chest over the course of an hour. Dale is joined by Raman Paul, Paul Rowles...


2: Is Pogba trying to gain power over Mourinho? Leicester review | Brighton preview

The relationship between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba could be a lot better. Mourinho wants more maturity and consistency from his most expensive Manchester United player, and Pogba would prefer if the manager didn't publicly slam him last season. United got off to a winning start, anyway. Yep. That same ol' bloody football club that happens to be in the middle of a crisis. How do they do it? Dale, Jonathan and Raman also preview this weekend's away trip to Brighton and answer your questions...


1: Season Preview: Miserable Mourinho, Pogba's uncertain future and why the Glazers are to blame

Dale is joined by Jonathan and Philip to discuss the root of the problems at Manchester United. It's no secret that the mood at Old Trafford could be better. Jose Mourinho's demeanour made that clear during pre-season following a lack of transfer activity.

There is also a section where we answer YOUR questions, so make sure to submit more for next week. Make sure you follow...

The Strettycast: The 8-1-1 formation

The boys are back for another week of football related waffle. Once again United's inconsistencies are exposed with a stellar performance in Galicia contrasted with a dour, unambitious showing against Arsenal.
