And we’ll round up the latest transfer news surrounding the club and perhaps put a few rumours to bed.

    FA Cup: Scraping Through & Snide Boots

    49:42

    Ian Irving hosts The Athletic's podcast dedicated to Manchester United with regular pundits, club correspondent Laurie Whitwell and United We Stand Editor Andy Mitten. There was a strong sense that United "got away with one" after the narrow FA Cup third round win over Aston Villa. Despite a promising start and some positive aspects, Villa were the better side for long periods and Marcus Rashford's form is a major cause for concern. Ten years ago this week Paul Scholes sprang a huge surprise on almost everyone involved with the club when he reversed his retirement to be named as a substitute against Manchester City. Ian tells us why one of his friends was particularly bemused when the news broke.

    New Year, Same Problems

    45:15

    The start of a new year on The Athletic's podcast dedicated to Manchester United, with Ian Irving and Andy Mitten returning for the first podcast of 2022. We've instant reaction from the home defeat to Wolves with our matchday reporter Adam Crafton before the boys break down the last couple of weeks of action. Is action the right word, though? The football has been on the dull side, despite Scott McTominay's best efforts. Not many fans on the edge of their seats at Old Trafford then (some didn't even have seats) but Phil Jones' return was a lovely story. Next up, two games with Aston Villa amid a January transfer window that's likely to feature more agent-chatter than tangible transfers.

    Talk of 2021: the Year in Summary

    51:34

    Ian Irving hosts The Athletic's podcast dedicated to Manchester United with regular pundits, club correspondent Laurie Whitwell and United We Stand Editor Andy Mitten. The latest wave of Covid cases across the UK has already caused significant disruption to the pre-Christmas fixture list, and after United's last two matches were called off, we're waiting to hear from the Premier League and our new manager. That may be that for the calendar year, then, so it's time to sit and take stock of a remarkably up-and down twelve months with a mailbag full of subscriber questions.

    Rangnick Rings the Changes

    51:01

    Ian Irving hosts The Athletic's podcast dedicated to Manchester United with United We Stand Editor Andy Mitten and Staff Editor Anthony Hay. No fewer than six academy graduates featured in the Champions League fixture against Young Boys Bern. Quite a few famous-sounding names took the pitch for Manchester United but the most significant of those was Zidane Iqbal, the first British South Asian player to do so. The first-team regulars may not feel hugely threatened by that tepid performance, but Ralf Rangnick and his coaching staff, soon to feature two additions, won't allow them to get too comfortable with important, and very winnable, games on the horizon.
