#594. World Cup chat with Ed & Tom. The group stage draws to a close and it's fair to say that the football has been both dramatic and high quality. Most of the major nations have made it through, although not Germany and not Luis Suarez' Uruguay. What's the German word for that feeling when you enjoy the misfortune of others? Hmmmm!

#593. We're almost through two rounds of the World Cup group stages and there's some decent football. England were good, then very bad. Lionel Messi was bad, then very good. And Ronaldo, well he stunk. Even Harry Maguire can claim a decent tournament so far. Ed & Dan discuss. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

#592. It's been a momentous week for departures.

#590. Ed and Tom look forward to the World Cup and with 16 Reds heading to Qatar there's plenty of United interest. But first, a short chat about another World Cup-bound player, Cristiano Ronaldo.

#587. We head into the World Cup with United securing a late victory at Craven Cottage. This wasn't a perfect performance, but it was an entertaining one - personified by Alejandro Garnacho's injury time winner. A star is born. Episode recorded before a washed up old hack heard a washed up old footballer complain about being irrelevant. ** No Question About That is listener supported.

#586. United lose at Aston Villa for the first time since 1995. Ed & Wayne digest a disappointing afternoon in Birmingham, where the local culinary delicacies were also sampled. Then we look ahead to the League Cup on Thursday and take in the Europa League draw. ** No Question About That is listener supported.

#585. Victory for United but defeat in the pursuit of first place in the Europa League group. Ten Hag's men will now face a two-legged playoff against a Champions League loser next February. Ed & Dan digest a strong first half and a weird second half at Anoeta. Then it's on to Villa at the weekend. No Steven Gerrard to mock, but three more points up for grabs anyway. ** No Question About That is listener supported. If you are interested in backing the show and accessing exclusive bonus...

#584. Another important win, another step forward under Ten Hag. Perhaps this United side has something about them after all. It wasn't fluent against West Ham at Old Trafford, but United dug in at important times and held out for a win, three points, and yet more evidence of progress. Ed & Tom discuss and then look forward to Thursday's game against Real Sociedad in the Europa. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

#583. United beat Sheriff at Old Trafford, but all anybody wants to talk about is Antony's 720 degree spin. Was it entertainment? Was it showboating? Both, perhaps, though the pundits seem to be united in their condemnation. Ed & Wayne wonder when it became against the rules to have fun. ** No Question About That is listener supported.

#582. United come back from a goal down to secure a very late draw at Chelsea. A fantastic point gained or disappointment that superiority over the 90 minutes didn't result in victory? Ed & Dan discuss. There's much to unpack, including another excellent performance by goalscorer Casemiro, Rafael Varane's injury and another step forward under Ten Hag. ** No Question About That is listener supported.

#581. Probably the best performance under Ten Hag, perhaps even for many years. United were dominant against Spurs at Old Trafford; a dynamic performance that offers some insight into the team that the manager is still trying to build. Ed & Dan thoroughly enjoyed it. But it can't only be good news, can it, with Cristiano Ronaldo dominating the headlines by leaving the game and ground early. In this week's interview, Ed talks to author Ryan O'Hanlon about his new book, Net Gains. ** No...

#580. United vs Saudi FC at Old Trafford. That state of modern football. Wearing the national team colours, Newcastle left with a point, but it really should have been victory for Ten Hag's side. United were robbed by the ref and VAR and guilty of missing two huge chances. Ed & Tom look back on a frustrating afternoon. ** No Question About That is listener supported.

#579. "How the days stretched out - each one the same as the one before, and they would continue to do so, tediously, until the end of history." - William Shakespeare on the Europa League. And while the Bard is not known to have been a Manchester United fan, he would surely have enjoyed The Scottish Player (II) stroking home a fine late winner. Under the floodlights, on a 'special' European night. Ed & Dan discuss. ** No Question About That is listener supported. If you are interested in...

#578. Ed & Wayne discuss a hard-fought victory at Goodison Park and plenty of guts from a United team that has not always been resilient in recent years. Is this the corner turned? After a humiliating defeat to Manchester City last weekend, Ten Hag's team has secured two away victories in a row. No small thing. ** No Question About That is listener supported.

#577. United come back from behind to beat Omonia Nicossia, but could we really learn much from the victory? The win leaves United in a decent position to qualify from the group stage but may need to beat Real Sociedad away later this month to top the group. Ed & Tom discuss the performance in Cyprus and look ahead to Sunday's game against Everton at Goodison Park. ** No Question About That is listener supported.

#576. City smash United. Again. It's getting sickeningly familiar. Despite winning the second half, Ed & Dan have very little good to say about United's performance. Did Erik ten Hag get the system and approach wrong? Probably. But would United have lost anyway? Yeah, maybe. At least there's another game coming up, with United playing on Thursday afternoon in Cyprus. Joy. ** No Question About That is listener supported.

#575. In a shocking turn of events Manchester United are about to play in the Premier League after almost a month of domestic inaction. And against Manchester City no less. Ed & Wayne look forward to the action, asking how the f**k do we stop Erling Haaland? First, some thoughts on the international break and much gnashing of teeth over United's latest financial results. It's not good, folks. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

#574. United beat FC Sheriff in Moldova to record a first victory in this year's Europa League. Joy! Ed & Wayne look back on a professional performance if not a particularly eventful game. With few games coming up, what can we learn about the team's return to winning ways after last week's defeat to Real Sociedad. ** No Question About That is listener supported.

#573. United lose to Real Sociedad in the Europa League and Ten Hag's recent run of victories is at an end. Momentum is lost, and while the manager needed to freshen up, the step down from his preferred XI is quite a drop. While United's tepid performance was frustrating, the role of referee Marco Di Bello in defeat cannot be overlooked. Ed & Tom discuss. ** No Question About That is listener supported.

#572. United beat Arsenal at Old Trafford to secure a fourth win in a row. That's it, we're back, hand over the trophy! While we shouldn't get out the silver polish just yet, there was a lot to enjoy in Sunday's result. Ed & Dan digest. Then there's a trip to San Sebastian to face Real Sociedad in the Europa League. There are worse places to visit. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

#571. Three wins on the bounce, the whole atmosphere changed, and a genuine sense that United might be building towards something. It's amazing how fast things can change in football. Victory at Leicester was hard earned, but with control. Ed & Wayne discuss, summarise the end of the transfer window and look forward to Arsenal at the weekend. ** No Question About That is listener supported.
