S7 E37: Season Review - Manchester United 2021/22 (Part One)

It’s time for the Manchester United Weekly Podcast’s season review of 2021/22. In this two-parter, we’ll first be looking back at the campaign just gone, our favourite moments - and there were some - goals and players. We’ll consider, with a bit of hindsight, where it went wrong for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and then where it went wrong for his interim successor Ralf Rangnick. We’ll compare the 21/22 defence to that of the season before, and the same for the attack, considering how the team’s style changed under Ole and then Ralf, and we’ll talk about a flurry of departures.

Note: We ran out of time to really dive into how much we love Juan Mata. What a great man. He will be missed in Manchester and at Manchester United.
