S6 E26: The Midlands Inquisition
It's a slog of a season. Game after game. After the woeful start in September and October, Manchester United grew to be excellent at winning against the 'bottom 14'. Not anymore. A 1-1 draw to West Brom follows shock defeat to Sheffield United and a draw to Everton and now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will have to do something they've been unable to do in the league this season, beat fellow members of the top six to make up for dropped points. With upcoming games against Chelsea and Manchester City, the opportunity will be there to do so. It's a set-back for United and for Solskjaer, not one that requires an inquisition into the whole team, club and coaching staff, but one which disappoints and frustrates. United were passive at the Hawthorns, in defence and attack, and they left with a point when they deserved little more.
Welcome back to the Manchester United Weekly Podcast where the mood can be summed up by a comment sent in by one of our Patrons, Michael Byerts, who said, "is there anything more to be said after that than uggghhhh?"
But, there is. A little. We're talking West Brom, West Ham, the FA Cup and in the middle of the show, before a preview of Thursday's Europa League game against Real Sociedad, you'll get your extensive youth, loan and women's round-up. Shola Shoretire and Joe Hugill are amongst the goals again while badge-kissing Charlie McNeill scores four in the Manchester derby.
