Rant Cast 314 – 4-0? Standard.

Well, that was fun! Ed and Paul look back over Manchester United’s 4-0 victory over Swansea City, revel in the 3 minutes of glorious football which brought about the comfortable scoreline and sing the praises of United’s start to the season. Tougher tests await, but it’s fun for now. There are a ton of listener questions, […]

Rant Cast 313 – Big Rom Bags a Brace

Manchester United are back, baby! We’re good again! Or, at least, good enough to smash a lacklustre West Ham United side into tiny pieces at Old Trafford. Ed and Paul look back at the game and discuss Big Rom making his home debut and bursting all the Hammers’ bubbles, Anthony Martial being brilliant for 10 […]

Rant Cast 312 – Welcome to the new season

It has been 58 days since the final Rant Cast of the 2016/16 season. Two months in which Ed and Paul have kicked back and enjoyed the beach in anticipation of the inevitable World War III. With the planet still in one piece it there must be Rant Cast. On this week’s show Ed and […]

Rant Cast – Summer Special Three: Michael Cox of Zonal Marking

For the third of this summer’s Rant Cast specials, Paul gets Michael Cox of Zonal Marking on the line, to talk about his excellent new book The Mixer: The Story of Premier League Tactics, from Route One to False Nine.

Rant Cast – Summer Special Two: Adam McKola of Full Time Devils

A couple of weeks ago, Paul sat down with Adam McKola of Full Time Devils to chat about his history with the club and his very specific job as the man who asks United fans what they think just after games. They talk the early days of United Rant, Beckham, Giggs and Andy Tate, accompanied […]

Rant Cast – Summer Special One: Transfer Bonanza with Tom Coast

We promised some stuff in your podcast feed during the summer, and never let it be said we do not deliver on our promises, except sometimes.

Rant Cast 308 – End of Season Review

It has been three weeks in the making, but here it is – the final Rant Cast of the season. This week Ed & Paul look back on the past 10 months of football. The highs, the lows, the THREE trophies won. As always, there’s the much coveted (not at all coveted) RANT CAST AWARDS: […]

Rant Cast 307 – Europa League Final Preview

This week’s Rant Cast focuses on one thing: the Europa League final. Much like the team, Ed & Paul have been phoning in recent shows in order to ensure full fitness for this special length preview of Wednesday’s game. The pod also includes an interview with Dutch football pundit Michiel Jongsma. If you are interested […]

Rant Cast 306 – going dark

It should be a joyous moment, with thousands of Reds getting ready for the Europa League final in Stockholm next week. And yet, José Mourinho’s team is doing a fine job of dampening the mood. In this week’s pod, Ed and Paul look back at the Reds’ uninspiring matches against Celta Vigo at Old Trafford […]

Rant Cast 305 – betting everything on Europa success

In the fortnight since the last Rant Cast Jose Mourinho has executed on a seemingly long-held plan: to bet everything on Manchester United winning the Europa League, at the expense of domestic league success. Draws with Manchester and Swansea City, then defeat at Arsenal has all but ensured a fourth successive season outside the top […]

Rant Cast 304 – Pep’s still got the Blues

Manchester United scored victory over Anderlecht and Burnley to continue the push for silverware and Champions League qualification on two fronts. Those victories came at a heavy price, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo struck down by serious knee injuries. Good week or bad week? Ed & Paul discuss. There’s a look back on the week’s two games, […]

Rant Cast 303 – Special, Again

What a game, what an approach, what a result! José Mourinho’s ‘tactical masterclass’ in United’s defeat of Chelsea at Old Trafford was, perhaps, the manager’s finest performance as Old Trafford boss. Victory puts United back in the frame for Champions League qualification and buys Mourinho significant credit for the months ahead. Ed & Paul look […]

Rant Cast 302 – The David Moyes Disappreciation Society

Manchester United came, Manchester United saw, Manchester United stuck it to David Moyes on Wearside. So, it wasn’t the finest performance, but after two draws at Old Trafford in the past week, three points offer a great fillip to the Reds’ hopes of making the Champions League Ed & Paul look back on the game […]

Rant Cast 301 – Remember when Man United were good?

Ah, draws. Familiar, comforting, draws. Or terrible, boring, frustrating draws, take your pick. Ed and Paul run the rule over the West Brom and Everton games at Old Trafford, and try and break down just where it’s all going wrong for Jose Mourinho’s side. There’s chat about man-management and a lengthy diatribe about why David […]

Rant Cast 300 – Europa or bust

After a two-week break, Ed & Paul look back on United’s past few games – against Bournemouth, Rostov, Chelsea and Middlesbrough. It has been a turbulent fortnight, with United now out of the FA Cup, out of sixth place in the league and one step further forward in the Europa League. Ed & Paul take the usual […]

Rant Cast 299 – We won!

In this week’s travel delayed Rant Cast, Ed & Paul look back on the League Cup Final (remember that?), celebrate United’s win, celebrate the wonder that is Zlatan Ibrahimovic and speculate on what comes next. We take the usual raft of listener questions and preview Bournemouth on Saturday. Then, for Patreon backers, there’s an interview […]

Rant Cast 298 – The Sergio Romero Special

Three appearances for Manchester United’s Argentinian No. 2 and three wins, with only one unlikely wondergoal conceded. Is the erstwhile World Cup finalist a contender for United’s No. 1 shirt? No. Obviously not. Nevertheless, Ed & Paul look back over a week a half which featured three wins and progress in two competitions. There’s an […]

Rant Cast 297 – on obscure European sides from the 1970s

The last time Manchester United faced Saint-Etienne the Red Army had a penchant for smashing up European cities and the Cup Winners Cup was still a thing. The glory days, the 1970s. Time has moved on and although Reds will behave far better at Old Trafford on Thursday and in France next week, the club […]

Rant Cast 296 – Foxes Outfoxed

Victory over Leicester City. That makes United the defacto champions, right? The Reds were back to winning ways with a comfortable win at the King Power Stadium, but it came just days after another disappointing home draw, this time against Hull City. Ed & Paul take the usual mix of questions from listeners, talk about […]

Rant Cast 295 – Transfer Deadline Day Special (Ahem)

Okay, we’ll level with you, neither Ed nor Paul mentioned Transfer Deadline Day once during the recording of this podcast. But they did mention United’s loss against Hull City, that nonetheless saw the Red Devils through to a Wembley final, and the joyous 4-0 demolition of Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup. There is […]
