Reflections from a very disappointing FA Cup semi-final...
Episode 82 - Andy Carroll's street heading ring
Dale is joined by Mike to discuss whether football cares about it’s players. The answer is no - but you need to listen to hear our reasons… Episode 82 has references to the illegal art of street heading, founded by Andy Carroll, as well as some Casey Stoney admiration.We share our views on how the Daily Mail launched a pathetic attack on Marcus Rashford. There’s a reference to a brilliant column, written by Jonathan Liew for the Guardian, which describes the sinister attack on a young black man.Although it's difficult to predict what sort of performance we will get from the lads this weekend, United are expected to claim three points from their home meeting with West Brom.Former United goalkeeper Sam Johnstone will be between the posts for the Baggies, and he's been talking about the impact David de Gea has had on his career, in the lead up to the match.Apologies - this podcast was delayed a week, so is slightly behind.
Episode 81 - Edinson Cavani off the mark
Dale and Mike return to discuss Manchester United's 3-1 win over Everton at Goodison Park.A lot of United's players will leave their Carrington camp for the November international break, so that means we will be taking a break from the usual post-match show for a week.Bruno Fernandes scored twice and registered an assist for Edinson Cavani as United beat Everton 3-1.Bernard scored Everton's only goal and it was the match's opener, but thankfully United responded the right way and came from behind to take all three points from their travels.Next up for United in the league is West Brom. Surely we'll beat them!Follow @Strettycast on Twitter - check StrettyNews.com for the latest Manchester United news
Episode 80 - Respect for Solskjaer still strong regardless of what happens
Stretty News editor Dale O'Donnell is joined by one of the blog's leading writers Ben Parsons to chat as pressure mounts on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager after Manchester United's latest defeat against Istanbul. It's a tough time for any football fan when the media is speculating over the manager getting sacked, and it doesn't help that Mauricio Pochettino is waiting on the wings for a call from Ed Woodward.That pressure has always existed, though. Since Solskjaer got the job on a full-time basis there has been always been talk about Pochettino. Not helped by our form, which has been up and down, but it's arguably more real now than ever. Dale gives his views on Solskjaer - a man he and Ben still hold utmost respect for - and they both ask what is the next step as United find themselves in the mud after a poor start to the 2020-21 campaign.Follow @StrettyNews & @Strettycast on Twitter.Follow the episode's panel: @ODonnellDale & @_benparsons
