A Season on the Edge
Remember when United were good? No, not during Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign, but that period when Louis van Gaal’s side won six games on the spin. Seems a long time ago now. Defeat at Stamford Bridge, hammered by Everton, and now a home loss to West Brom – and United didn’t score in any of them. Second seemed achievable, now the Dutchman’s players are looking nervously at Liverpool, with the Scousers just four points behind. Ed & Paul discuss all the fallout from United’s weekend defeat, take your questions and look ahead to a tough-looking fixture at Crystal Palace next weekend.

will listen tomorrow, do not RT spoiler material. Thanks.
If, after your contribution to the podcast, van Gaal doesn’t immediately offer you a highly paid job as his spin doctor then he has missed a great opportunity. Your ability ‘to talk the talk’ on behalf of a man who is struggling ‘to walk the walk’, is second to none. It’s quite gob-smacking.
Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt and say that Paul can see a process to progress 🙂
Paul the revelator, great advocator?
to ask the Q about “when did Rooney drag us back”, never forget the famous West Ham away 4-2 win, followed by a straight ban for him 😉
top notch as usual lads…let’s hope we can do the business v Palace and not have to go into the last 2 games…
Always nice to share my pain of us losing with you guys
I agree with Paul about the Everton game being by the far the worst out of the 3 losses, the problem I saw with our problem in breaking down the bus is partly to do with luck maybe 2%, but the main two problem I see, is 1. Lack of clinical final passes/finishing against all 3 teams we had the ball in good areas and the final cross has been over hit or cut out, maybe that’s to do with the fact that Valencia has forgot how to cross, and Young although he has had a great season is still only an above average player and by no means would ever get into Barca Bayern, Chelsea Etc…and secondly lack of pace and willingness to break lines, in the attacking third and in the midfield.
Loaning Hernandez and selling Welbeck individually not such a big mistake but both together massive mistake as there is no one willing seen as RVP is slow and Rooney has forgotten how to run unless he is running 60 yards out of position to give away a foul, there is no one making runs behind defenders so its constantly passes into feet and back again.
And as for the midfield Herrera who I rate highly seems to be the only player capable of breaking lines ( seen as Di Maria isn’t playing) other than that our midfield is stationary Matas is world class and in my opinion is our best outfield player, but hasn’t got the power or pace of a midfield runner. At the time of writing this comment United have signed Depay so that definitely goes some way to solving that problem but it seems to me that we need to sign that player we all hoped Anderson was going to be and Pogba is (SAF’S biggest mistake) who that is I do not know but athleticism is somewhat forgotten about at United over the last few years, we have plenty of skill I think we need some serious stamina and power to our squad aswell as the nice part of the game.
