Episode 111 - Ed Woodward does runner after ESL collapse
Wow. It's been a whirlwind. Dale and Mike chat about the ongoing events this week on the Strettycast.The battle is ongoing but first we need to get through the wreckage. Ed Woodward has resigned in timely fashion and we can't help but think it has a lot to do with the European Super League failure.Some might say he went out on his sword. United fans have long known that these parasites were no good for the game, but now it sounds like English football has woken.We look to the models in Germany in hope - but how does a 50+1 ruling come into play? Is it possible or have we gone too far?Thanks for listening and we'll be back on Monday with another episode.
Episode 110 - Webby & O'Neill - Backing Solskjaer and update on Declan Rice
Welcome to another Strettycast, the Manchester United podcast, with Webby & O’Neill joining me to talk about the latest stories as we look to finish the current season strongly.In this episode I chat to Webby & O’Neill about their terrific YouTube channel, set up with the aim of bringing enthusiasm back to United fans. Both of them are supportive of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, like myself, and feel he’s the best man for the job.Tony O’Neill tells the Strettycast that if Harry Kane leaves Tottenham this summer, the England captain will join Chelsea, not United as he’s settled and happy living in London.On Jesse Lingard, the lads explain why the England midfielder appears to have found his level at West Ham, with O'Neill adding: "He will never get a long run in our team because teams come to Old Trafford and set up defensively."No team sets up defensively against West Ham. That's why he's looking good because he's got more freedom to run around."The conversation moved on to a point where we spoke about United's position from the negotiation table and having a player West Ham and other clubs will want to sign in the summer."The deal as far as I'm concerned has already been done," O'Neill continued. "Me and Webby spoke on our YouTube channel, before believe these conversations have gone on. We've had little chats with people, so don't be surprised if Declan Rice comes here. Trust me."Remember, you can send us questions via email which we’ll try and get to each week. You can also send them to either @StrettyNews or @Strettycast (or both).
Episode 109 - Solskjaer laughs off pathetic Mourinho
Welcome to another Strettycast, the Manchester United podcast, with myself and Mike.In this episode we enjoy the 3-1 win over Tottenham, José Mourinho had a meltdown and the matchday photographers had a great time at the so-called Special One’s expense.Of course, Mourinho isn’t all that special. We learned that during his time in charge at Old Trafford. Sure, we enjoyed the Europa League and League Cup triumphs but with Mourinho it was more about him, rather than us. No unity and a lot of unhappy happy faces is what I can remember of Mourinho’s time before he got the axe. Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood all got on the scoresheet. We then take listener questions about Greenwood’s role in the team, eating habits with the Solskjaer family and lots more.Remember, you can send us questions via email which we’ll try and get to each week.

Episode 108 - Success in Spain
Manchester United defeated Granada 2-0 in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final tie in Spain on Thursday to put themselves in pole position for a place in the last four.Marcus Rashford raced on to a long ball by Victor Lindelof to fire United in front.Bruno Fernandes converted a late penalty after he was caught off the ball by Yan Eteki, leaving him with a bruised eye, but the Portuguese midfielder's spot-kick went through the hands of Rui Silva.United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be without the suspended trio of captain Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay for the second leg at Old Trafford next week.Assessing the performances at Los Carmenes, Dale and Mike provide their thoughts on Granada v Manchester United.
Episode 107 - Granada preview with Heath Chesters
Welcome to another Strettycast, the Manchester United podcast, with myself and Mike.In this episode, we are joined by Heath Chesters, a Mancunian who fell in love with Granada and worked for the club.We talk about Diego Martinez, the 40-year-old manager who is seen as the next big time coming out of Spain at the moment. Not forgetting familiar face Roberto Soldado after netting 10 goals for the La Liga outfit this season.You can subscribe to the Strettycast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and aCast.If you’re a fan of the show, please leave us a rating/review on Apple Podcasts.
Episode 106 - FA Cup nightmare ahead of international break
Welcome to another Strettycast, the Manchester United podcast, with myself and Mike.In this episode, we question Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team selection against Leicester City after United crashed out of the FA Cup.The goals were conceded were abysmal (Dean Henderson wasn’t at fault for any of them) and questions are also asked of our defense and midfield.There was no key influence on the pitch for United yesterday. The system failed against a tactically fluid Leicester side that were underestimated from the start. It was worth remembering ahead of kick-off that this is a team one point behind United in the league.You can subscribe to the Strettycast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and aCast.If you’re a fan of the show, please leave us a rating/review on Apple Podcasts.
Episode 105 - Pogba back with a bang
Strettycast episode 105 - Dale and Mike react to an important win against AC Milan at the San Siro. This episode was record before the draw took place for the quarter-finals, so we'll discuss that on Monday morning.Paul Pogba took the headlines after coming on as a half-time substitute, only to score the match-winner minutes later.He was superb in the middle and gave United a new lease of life. Having him back fit will be a huge bonus and our fingers are firmly crossed with hope he avoids injury or illness while away with the French squad next week.The lads are confident about going all the way in the Europa League this season after beating AC Milan, who after United were probably the best side left in the competition before we knocked them out. A big thank you to everyone to tuned in live on Friday morning for the Strettycast LIVE. We will continue to make this feature available on YouTube, Periscope and Facebook to give listens a variety of platforms to find us on.Email the show: firstname.lastname@example.orgTwitter: @Strettycast
Episode 104 - The David Moyes Derby
I don't think anyone calls it the David Moyes derby but we do. Manchester United got over the line against West Ham who came to Old Trafford to defend.The visitors sat back and welcomed pressure.It didn't work and as soon as they conceded an own goal they began to attack the Reds in numbers.West Ham deserved to lose the game given how they approached it from the start. It was dull and exactly what you'd expect of 90 minutes of football with Moyes.It was arguably one of Harry Maguire's best performances in the shirt despiteLuke Shaw being rewarded as MOTM. Mason Greenwood didn't score but did everything else you would expect from a centre-forward.This is the start of a tricky week for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Will be answer the next round of questions coming his way?United have two cup games before the international break and the Norwegian needs to win a trophy.Some statsMoyes still only has 7 wins at Old Trafford in his whole career, including wins as Manchester United manager.Moyes carries on his proud tradition of having never won as a visiting manager to Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea or Arsenal - 19 years as a PL managerWatch the latest episode of the Strettycast onStretty News TV
Episode 103 - Costly error for Henderson
Manchester United are going about their Round of 16 Europa League tie the hard way after conceding late into stoppage time against AC Milan on Thursday night. Dale and Mike are here to dissect a dull night for Ole’s Reds on the 103rd episode of the Strettycast.We discuss AC Milan’s fall from grace and current rise to prominence – quite similar in terms of on-pitch results at Old Trafford post-Ferguson – as we agree that they’re one of the biggest clubs in the world going through a transition.I highly doubt our listens will be comforted by the news of Avram Glazer’s latest business move.It gets a little heated on the podcast over Donny van de Beek.Search ‘Stretty News’ on social media to find us, and contact the show via email here: email@example.comWe are now streaming each Strettycast recording LIVE on YouTube (Stretty News TV), Periscope (@StrettyNews).*Please rate and review Strettycast on your chosen podcast platform.
