Ole's Hungry Kids
United beat Spurs at the "Tottenham Hotspur Stadium" and José Mourinho lost the run of himself. Mark it down as a thing you absolutely love to see. United's victory further cements the team's second place in the Premier League, with qualification for the Champions League now all but guaranteed. Ed & Paul enjoy a thoroughly satisfying day. Also on the show - a look back on United's victory in Granada, ahead to the return leg on Thursday and to Burnley's visit to Old Trafford next weekend....

Last of the No-hicans
United beat Brighton at Old Trafford in a low key return after the International break. It wasn't pretty despite United's dominance of possession, but a brilliant finish from Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood's later head won it for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men. Ed & Paul discuss, while looking forward to games against Granada and Spurs in the week to come and wondering why Ole has a problem with Mohicans. For Patreon backers, a look at the weekend's Premier League action....

TeamScrewer
Victory over Milan in Italy took United into the Europa League quarter finals, but the achievement was overshadowed by defeat to Leicester in the FA Cup. It wasn't just any defeat, but a comprehensive win for the hosts who outplayed United in every part of the game. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's players may have been tired, but the manager's tactics, selection, use of substitutes and his players' performances - especially in defence - were beyond risible. Ed & Paul are not happy.Also on the show - a look at United...


Mo Moyes, No Problems
Victory over David Moyes' West Ham at Old Trafford restores United to second place in the Premier League. It was an important win, but a truly uninspiring game. Did the Hammers set out to not-lose-by-too-much. Probably. Fifth place West Ham. Moyes' West Ham. Also on the show, a brief chat about last Thursday's draw with Milan at Old Trafford and what it means for next week's return at San Siro. Then a look ahead to the weekend's FA Cup tie at Leicester. And we talk about United's restructure....

Owing the Etihad
United win at the Etihad, again. It's becoming all so predictable. Billed as the battle between United's away record and City's 21-match winning run, it was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side that emerged victorious. Glorious. Ed & Paul discuss. Also on the show, a look ahead to United's match with Milan in the Europa League and a West Ham in the Premier League. For backers, a round-up of the week's action in the league....

Hands Up!
United have scored just once in the past seven games against a 'big six' side and that was a penalty. It's becoming a pattern. Mind you that list includes Arsenal so perhaps that stat isn't worth the chip paper it's printed on. While Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team was cautious in securing a draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, the game ended in some controversy with United being denied an obvious penalty for Callum Hudson-Odoi's handball. Ed & Paul discuss....


Have to Respect the Stat Padding
It wasn't quite as comfortable as the scoreline suggested, with United struggling for fluency against Newcastle at Old Trafford, but victory has restored some momentum. Ed & Paul look back on United's 3-1 victory, together with last Thursday's Europa League clash against Real Sociedad. Then there's a preview of the Europa return leg and Sunday's trip to Stamford Bridge....

He's Not the Moyesiah, He's a Very Naughty Boy
United reached the FA Cup quarter-final after a drab victory over David Moyes' West Ham at Old Trafford. The Hammers set out to spoil the game, recording just three shots in two hours that none of us will get back. With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer making some changes, United lacked fluency against an opposition that set out to secure a draw in a game that had to provide a winner....

Harry Magwhygodwhy
United blow a lead against Everton to drop yet more points at Old Trafford. The very brief dream of another Premier League title is surely over. With calamitous defending and another David de Gea gaffe costing United, where does the manager take his team from here? Ed & Paul discuss the 3-3 draw with Everton and then look forward to an FA Cup tie against David Moyes' West Ham. For Patreon backers a look at all the week's Premier League games....


Are You Ipswich in Disguise?
United often score six, but seldom score ten... though it could have been but for Mike Dean! We haven't seen a performance like this since, well, Andy Cole scored five and United nine against Ipswich in 1995. Ed & Paul thoroughly enjoyed it. Then there's a look ahead to United's clash with Everton on Saturday night....

Edinson Cavan-oh!
United play out a draw at Arsenal, but was it an opportunity missed? The point keeps the Reds second, while the team's momentum grinds to a halt. Ed & Paul discuss. Then a look at the latest moves in the transfer market, another round of racist trolling on social media, and Amad Diallo's debut for the U23s. There's also a look ahead to Tuesday's game against Southampton....

Absolutely Dreadful
NQAT is back after an enforced break. United lose to Sheffield United in one of the most dreadful performances of the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer era. Coming just days after United beat Liverpool in the FA Cup, what was going on? Ed & Paul digest a devastating defeat and discuss what's to come against Arsenal at the weekend....


FFS, Pass it Marcus!
United played out a scoreless draw against Liverpool, continuing a poor recored against the 'big six' (and Arsenal) this season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team remains top of the league after the point at Anfield, though it could have been more if United had taken some late chances. Ed & Paul discuss and then look forward to the midweek game at Fulham. For backers, a look at the Premier League games over the past week....

Top o' the League
United beat Burnley at Turf Moor to move *checks notes* top of the Premier League! It wasn't always pretty, but a controlled second-half performance brought Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team to the summit for the first time this season. Ed & Paul discuss Tuesday's victory and look ahead to the weekend's top-of-the-table clash against de-perched Liverpool....

McSaucey-ish
United beat Watford at Old Trafford to reach the FA Cup Fourth Round. It was an underwhelming performance from a much-changed team. Ed & Paul discuss and then look ahead to Tuesday night's Premier League tie at Burnley. For backers a brief look at the FA Cup Third Round and some thoughts about where the season goes from here....


Lump On!
City beat United at Old Trafford to make the EFL Cup final - a fourth semi-final loss under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's management. Is it sign that United's good spell is over or a close game in which the details went against the Reds. Ed & Paul discuss. Then there's United's FA Cup tie against Watford on Saturday night. Another trophy to aim for or a chance to play the kids?...

Ole We Do Is Win
NQAT is back after a five match winter break. It may only have been two weeks, but in this most packed of seasons, we missed a lot of action. Ed & Paul look back on United's festive programme, with a deep dive on the recent victory over Aston Villa at Old Trafford, in which Paul Pogba and Jack Grealish were standout performers. For Patreon backers, we dive into the main narratives around the Premier League at the half-way stage....

Blades Runners
United beat Sheffield United at Bramall Lane but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team didn't make it easy despite controlling the game. United are now up to sixth with a game in hand. So are United good again? Ed & Paul discuss in the final NQAT of the year. For backers, a review of match week 13 in the Premier League....


The Dullest Derby
One of the dullest derbies in recent memory ended with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer proclaiming moral victory, or at least United's best performance against City during his tenure. Ed & Paul discuss. Then there's United's game against lowly Sheffield United on Thursday night. Victory, surely?...

Champions League of Staggering Incompetence
Out of the Champions League, out of ideas, and in the wilderness once again. United worked so hard post-lockdown to make it into the Champions League only to blow any chance of qualification for the knock-out stages with a series of defensively incompetent displays. Ed & Paul discuss all the fallout from United's defeat to RB Leipzig and ask whether Ole Gunnar Solskajer remains the right man for the job?...

Consistently Confounding Comebacks FC
United secure another comeback victory on the road, beating David Moyes' West Ham with three second-half goals. Ed & Paul discuss United's another inconsistent performance, which required the introduction of Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes to save the day. The Reds are up to fifth in the Premier League, but what team will turn up against RB Leipzig at on Tuesday night?...


Fred and the Inevitable Red
United must secure a point in Germany next week if the club is to make this season's Champions League knockout stage. Defeat to PSG at Old Trafford leaves United's continued participation in doubt, but it really didn't have to be this hard. At times United played well on Wednesday night, but did Ole Gunnar Solskjaer make critical mistakes? Ed & Paul discuss.There's a discussion about Edinson Cavani's use of social media, a brief look at the new rules governing registration of overseas players following Brex...

Hail St Mary's
On the main pod, it's a cliché, but let's run with it anyway - that was a Manchester United way to win. On Sunday United recorded an eight successive away win, coming back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at Southampton with a 93rd minute goal. Punch the air with delight, it feels good to talk about a victorious United! Ed & Paul dissect victory at St Mary's and then look ahead to a crucial Champions League fixture against Paris Saint Germain at Old Trafford....

And You Have to Say That Is Magnificent
United win in the Champions League and it was *checks notes* really comfortable, even impressive at times. What's going on?

We chat to Guardian reporter Jamie Jackson about his new book Red Apprentice. Finally, there's a discussion about Diego Maradona's legacy after his death on Wednesday. Hasta siempre, Diego....


Three Points Bagged
United returned to Premier League action after the international break and put in another low-key performance. Three points were gained via Bruno Fernandes' 12th penalty for the club, but it was far from easy against one of the worst sides in the division. Ed & Paul break down United's performance and try and maintain some perspective ahead of a hectic few weeks ahead. There's also a look ahead to Tuesday night's crucial Champions League fixture against İstanbul Başakşehir and for backers a look back on the...

Between a C*ck and a Hard Place
The US elections loom large in the conversation as Donald Trump refuses to leave office and his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, holds a press conference next to a dildo shop. Go figure. On the pitch, another wild swing in Manchester United's performance. Following defeat to Arsenal and Istanbul last week, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side secured a comfortable victory over Everton. After conceding first, United came back to score three fine goals and control the game. Why can't Ole get consistent performances out of this ...

Istanbulshit Performance
Manchester United lost to İstanbul Başakşehir with one of the most comically poor defensive displays of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's managerial reign. Of any managerial reign. Just what has Ole been coaching all these months? The defeat places United in a more difficult Champions League position than should be the case. Ed & Paul discuss all the fallout and look forward to United's game against Everton at the weekend....


The Yada Yada
One step forward, one giant leap back. Twas always the way under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's stewardship. Following the emphatic midweek victory over RB Leipzig, United lost at home to Arsenal, in desperately limp fashion. Ed & Paul discuss. There's some sad news to process, with Nobby Stiles passing away and Sir Bobby Charlton revealing a diagnosis of dementia. Finally, we look forward to United's midweek Champions League fixture against İstanbul Başakşehir. For backers, a rapid-fire review of this week's Premi...

The Entertainers
United and Chelsea played out a bore draw in the Manchester rain. With neither manager opting for much ambition, highlights were reduced to a dubious VAR decision and a handful of decent saves from new Chelsea keeper Edouard Mendy. Ed & Paul discuss.Then there's a look ahead to the midweek Champions League fixture against RB Leipzig and next weekend's clash with Arsenal. For backers, a rapid-fire review of this week's Premier and Champions League games....

Ici c'est Manchester
We'll always have Paris, it was said during the darker times last season, but apparently it's a regular occurrence after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side won victory at Parc des Princes for the second time in as many years. This time was different though. United's manager out-thought his competitor as the Reds first contained, then dominated, and Sir Marcus scored. Ed & Paul discuss.There's a debate about the the bloodbath on United's balance sheet and a preview of the weekend's game against Chelsea....


Juan Matagical Performance
Well, that's one way to recover from a disastrous defeat! United recovered from the 6-1 hammering at Tottenham's hands and an early goal at St James Park to record a comfortable win. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team left it late, but goals from Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford took the reds to three much-needed points, while Juan Mata turned back the clock. Ed & Paul discuss all the fallout.Then there's a Champions League fixture at Paris Saint Germain on Tuesday night. Can U...

F*ck This Sh*t
Hammered by Jose Mourinho's Tottenham in the worst performance by a United side since, well, you know that day. The sickening result, together with the club's inability to manage any coherent transfer policy has Ed & Paul questioning the players, manager and leadership. One horrendous day. For backers, something about other Premier League results, as if anybody cares....

Up for the Juarabao Cup
United beat Brighton in the Carabao Cup, putting in the most comprehensive performance of the season to date. Goals from Scott McTominay, Juan Mata and Paul Pogba sealed a place in the last eight. Ed & Paul review the action and briefly look ahead to Spurs at the weekend (For a fuller preview, see our previous episode)....


Maupaying the Price for Handball
United got very, very lucky, but the first three points of the Premier League campaign are now on the board thanks to Bruno Fernandes' 100th minute penalty winner. Jose Mourinho moaned, but apparently United really can do whatever they want, including scoring after the final whistle has blown. Ed & Paul enjoyed it very much!There's also a brief look back on the midweek Carabao Cup victory over Luton and a preview of this week's rapid rematch against Brighton in the same competition. For backers, we review t...

Underbeeked
Let's not start as we mean to go on! United finished last season limping over the finish line following an outstanding series of post-lockdown results. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's policy of using a small squad eventually told, with players suffering from fatigue by the end of the campaign. Little more than a month later and a strange mix of under-prepared and over-tired players arrived back in Carrington, some with no more than 10 days rest, all having played no more than one preparatory fixture. These are some ...

61 and Out
It's the hope that kills you, so goes the cliché. And while United will look back on defeat to Sevilla with some disappointment, especially with Romelu Lukaku and Ashley Young in Friday's final, Sunday's 2-1 loss concludes a season of some progress. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side reached three cup semi-finals and finished third in the Premier League - much better than many hoped during some dark moments in January. Ole has built a side with identity; one that scores some great goals and attacks with flair. The...


Setting Unrealistic Benchmarks
United sneak past FC Copenhagen to book a place in the Europa League semi-final, but it took extra time to do it. Ed & Paul look back on Monday's victory and wonder why the game was so close despite United having 13 shots on target. Then there's a look ahead to Sunday night and a one-off semi against Sevilla - José Mourinho's nemeses from 2018. For backers, at look at the current state of affairs in the Champions League....

Blast from the LASK
Europe. Britain may be separated from the continent by a body of water, but United will be heading to the Europa League final eight mini tournament in Germany next week anyway. It was inevitable after United's 5-0 victory over LASK in Austria back in March, of course, but the Reds made sure with a hard-fought win at Old Trafford on Wednesday night. Ed & Paul mull over a forgettable game, look ahead to next week's fixtures in Cologne, and talk transfers and contracts!...

Third Place is a Charm
At one stage this season Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team was in 14th place in the Premier League, far closer to the relegation zone than earning a place in the Champions League. United's post-lockdown form has earned a place at Europe's top table, making up a gap of 15 points on Leicester and over-taking Chelsea in the process. Ed & Paul discuss United's 2-0 victory at the King Power Stadium and the implications for United's future. There's also a brief preview of the upcoming Europa League Round of 16 tie agai...


Squeaky Bum Time
Another match, more dropped points.

David de Goner

Dr. Rashford Will See You Now
United delivered when it mattered against Crystal Palace on Thursday night, but it was much harder work than the 2-0 scoreline might suggest.

Ed & Paul look back on all the action, discuss the fallout from Manchester City's CAS ruling, and look ahead to the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea at Wembley....


Hard Lessons
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says United will learn a "hard lesson" after dropping points against Southampton at Old Trafford, but will the 2-2 draw cost United a place in next season's Champions League, and the money that goes with a seat at Europe's top table? Ed & Paul discuss all the fallout from a lacklustre performance and look ahead to Thursday's tie against Crystal Palace in south London....

Three Goal Margin FC
Another week, another victory by a three goal margin. What's going on at Manchester United?!

There's also an interview with the newly rebranded Stretford End Paddock....

Marvellous Mason
