Will cover this on the next show - we just about managed to fill an hour talking shite about the current crazy times and focused on the question from @Vault Dweller this week
Thanks @Rood! Long time listener. And yet another fantastic podcast... Stay safe you guys... Especially @AR87 in NYC!

Given Man Utd site showing old United games. Could you ask the team which is their favorite game of all time? Does not have to be one though. :angel:
Finally got round to answering this one!

Finally got round to recording another lockdown podcast - myself and @Raees battle through the horror of the football-free zone that is lockdown to discuss how the authorities may go about revising the football calendar, the virtues of South Korea's K League and our favourite classic United games from happier times.

Nik also masterminds a plot in which the Scousers are robbed of their first title in three decades while he can still claim victory in the fantasy league he's in with his mates.

Also some chat on player contracts with Pogba, Ighalo and Gomes all up for discussion

Some of the games we mention include the 4-3 v Real Madrid, Roma 7-1 and that night in Turin...

Thank you thank you! Finally got around to completing this podcast. Another superb effort by you boys. Fascinating list of game. Loved the reference to the Blackburn game. Was well before my time as a united fan (started in 1999). Hard to argue with any of the matches you guys talked about. The 7-1 against Roma, the 4-3 against Madrid are all up there.

For me though, I'd like to add the 8-2 demolition of Arsenal, and, for some weird reason, the 1-3 win against Arsenal more recently, with de Gea pulling off those wonder saves.

Thank you so much for answering my question lads and looking forward to another podcast sooner please.

so what you reckon? Not sure if we should keep doing them at the moment or just wait under footy starts again
Sorry mate been so busy and keep getting distracted.

I thought it was a great episode again man but I appreciate the difficulties with how everything is just now. However, now being able to talk about the season resuming with the news this week about the PL / FA Cup / European football all being given the green light to resume.

I suppose the next big points of interest are next season. It seems like the players are going to get very little time between the seasons this year.

And feck Pool :nervous: :lol:

No worries mate - before getting back to the normal podcasts with actual matches to discuss, we have one random episode just recorded last night with a United quiz from @Annihilate Now! , good fun to record but doesnt reflect well on any of us !

glad you liked it - I do like doing the reminiscing stuff, sometimes I think we should even focus on that rather than the usual match analysis since so many others do that anyway nowadays. As mentioned, next pod out soon and there is plenty of historic stuff in there.

In the meantime, here is a reminder of the Blackburn 1993 clip with some top work from @12OunceEpilogue to edit in the archive soundbites

first episode of the restarted season with me, Colm and DavidG - obviously covering the Spurs game and general thoughts about the 'new normal' in the Premier League. Plus that Keano rant, our midfield & goalkeeping conundrums and Sheffield United preview.

Bit confused, latest podcast seems to be Nik and Reese; not Spurs post match?
Thanks for the heads up mate! I should have checked it myself but I think it is all sorted now anyway

Let me know if any issues and always happy to hear your feedback

I am outraged and want want my money back. ;)
Not finished it yet so may provide more feedback but a good pod. I think the knock on effect of Shaws bad positioning on Maguire has been underestimated. He had a huge space to his left to defend and was probably a bit rusty. Ultimately you defend as a unit, we made multiple mistakes and got punished. Hopefully we work on it and improve.

Well Shaw does mess up but still a long way to go until it's a goal - as @Duafc mentioned on show, even AWB and Lindelof can do better so ye it is a collective feck up but for me Maguire should be the most embarrassed

Did a quick poll on Twitter on this

I was. I'll never forget the Falcao 'shiny bastard' rant, it's a pity nothing has come close in terms of pure visceral emotion in the UH days.

Good listening again boys.

I did used to listen when you used to be called Football - Bloody Hell! I remember the arguments that used to break out over the particularly poor period we were having back then (mostly down to LvG) and listening to you guys had me hooked from the start. So I have been along for the ride ever since and enjoyed it all :)

Sheffield game - Marvellous hat trick from Martial. Agreed that due to the play of Bruno and Pogba that Martial can stay higher up the pitch and I think he could really benefit moving forward. Sheffield are really struggling but we were excellent and ruthless which was great to see. It should have been 4 or 5 really.

Pogba / Matic and Bruno are the starting three for me. Pogba has been awesome since the restart. Brilliant. I couldn't believe Martial nicked that effort off of him :lol: I love Bruno. End of.

Can understand making changes for the Norwich game but Bruno could do with a rest. Too many changes seemed to hurt us and we took ages to get going. After the goal, I thought we were getting a handle on the game but then more changes hurt us further. Moving forward, this should be Mata's last season really and Lingard needs punting, so so poor. I also thought Romero should have saved Cantwell's goal if I'm being honest. I have issues with Shaw at full back too and I have said as much in his thread. He leaves too much space defensively for me and I think he looks lost at times when attacking. I like AWB and I think he is getting better going foward. I do think we need a LB and I also think we need coaching for the flanks too, the point about Rashford or whoever not passing to Shaw when he goes past is a great point.

I think we need a starting centre half too. I like Bailly but I think he has got poorer (maybe a combination of injuries and confidence) and Lindelof isn't the answer either. No idea what's happening with Tuanzebe. I would get rid of Jones / Smalling / Lindelof and look to sign a starting centre back. I'm disappointed about the situation with Tuanzebe as well, I like the look of him but hopefully he overcomes and makes it here.

I think we will beat Brighton and Bournemouth too. 2-0 and 3-0.

I am gutted that we have lost all our old episodes and they're no longer archived anywhere I must admit :(

I don't remember the Shiny Bastard rant :lol: who was that? It sounds like an Imran thing @Annihilate Now!

I think it may have been an @Amethyst text message/DM, could be wrong about that, but you read it out over the Ave Satani theme from The Omen and it was along the lines of 'you and your wife need to feck off out of our club, you're stealing vast sums of money for feck all'. I distinctly remember the 'shiny bastard' line :lol:

That's not the one I remember, but it's a good one. I'm starting to think I may have conflated elements of these two rants though. I can't be sure Alex's read-out was over music, as I could be thinking of Imran's, but why do I recall some kind of arresting horror theme like Ave Satani or Tubular Bells over Alex's voice? He definitely, 100% read something out about Falcao as I recall 'you shiny bastard' like it was yesterday :lol:

I think 6 years but not quite sure what was the date of the very first episode

I have a vague memory of that now that you mention it

Here's the post that was being quoted! I'm guessing the actual clip of us reading it out with the music is gone forever

Nothing could piss me off more than seeing this idiot walking around in his fashion clothes. Just look at those tight jeans with that iphone 6 shining through and that little yellow shopping bag probably worth more than what the average fan earn in a full year of HARD WORK. All my anger of this will eventually be projected on LVG if he don't get his FAT ASS up from the bench and send this piece of GARBAGE back to Monaco in a box before the end of this month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm 100% sure this kind of treatment is what causes all these losses! Just imagine being the other guy who produce more than Falcao and still get to sit on the bench (Herrera, Mata, Januzaj ETC). THERE ARE PLAYERS WE'VE SENT AWAY THAT PRODUCED MORE THAN YOU EVER DID YOU SHINY BASTARD. Do you realise you're down there with the likes of Bellion, Miller, Djemba Djemba and all you do is post stuff on fecking twitter and walking around with your bought wife?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
